“No Problems”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This is your average hotel. Nothing special. The front desk girl was friendly, and the entrance area was nice and clean with some random guy playing the piano.
The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The tv reception was pretty bad though.
We had some appies and beers at the pub downstairs which was pretty quiet, but the bartender/server gave us really great service.

This hotel has an indoor pool and has a Fred Meyer store next door. The hotel has a shuttle that will take you to and from the airport. The staff do their best to accomodate you. This is the second time we have used this hotel when taking a trip at Bellingham airport.

Although the hotel was classy and clean, it was not a place I'd take my kids again. The pool hours are ridiculous and the breakfast in the restaurant wasn't the best. Not to mention that the cot we got for one of our kids is outdated (lumpy and sunken in mattress). The location was another downside; as it's not close to anything.

Great for an 8 hour stay, but I wouldn't want to be there any longer.

It's all a little creepy in trying to be a grand hotel with a big indoor pool atrium, that the rooms are all around. It is done so cheaply it's like you are in some bad dream.

A highway hotel, suitable for a one night sleepover only, if no other choice.

I don't care for the lack of a continental breakfast like every other Best Western at which I've stayed. Nor the awful chlorine smell all the way to the room, which I realize they can't do much about, but what a terrible design for a hotel. Expedia gave our 4 person group two double beds which is ridiculous. Luckily the hotel was able to give us 2 queens, which is about the only positive thing I can say about the stay. I don't know how this can be rated as a 3 star hotel, there is no way it is worth the price charged for the rooms. I chose it for the close proximity to the Western campus and my prior positive Best Western experiences, but will do a lot more research of nearby hotels the next time I visit my daughter at Western.

Stayed there last night and was satisfied with hotel. Price was high for service offered in this area. Unlike other BWs they did not have a breakfast. Otherwise a good hotel convenient to the freeway.
