We were in town touring WWU with my high school son and decided to stay here. Good clean hotel that was close to the school & close to downtown Bellingham. Everyone was very friendly. I really don't get the whole pool in the atrium of all of the rooms. We were exhausted and turned in early and did find the noise from that a bit bothersome, but it was early. I believe by 10pm the noise was over. Had I been out still enjoying Bellingham, we would have never had known it was loud in my room from the pool. Didn't eat at the hotel at all, but it did look like a nice option. We chose to explore the town instead.
