“Found a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We stayed at this property while on vacation in the US and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The check in was a bit bumpy because we were earlier than 3 pm and one of the few rooms they had clean was near the pool so I apologized but asked to be moved to a different room. Instead of attitude, the front desk staff were very gracious and the room we eventually received was lovely.

Our room was clean and overlooked a little creek area, the king size bed was comfortable. The washroom already had extra towels and good quality complimentary toiletries and the added touch of an additional light switch in the bathroom that gently turns on the light to full so when you first wake up, you aren't hit with harsh light in your face.

It's a three building property set back in a shopping area. The grounds are well maintained and it was ideally located and close to everything we needed. Given its approximation to the highway, the property was also surprisingly quiet.

We are frequent visitors to the US and while we don't spend a lot of time in a hotel room because are trips are usually activity packed, I'm stil very particular about room quality. If this property maintains the same level of service we received during our first stay, this will be our hotel of choice each time we visit the area.

I booked via Hotwire and got a great rate ($95) which was about $20 less than normal for a 4 star accommodation. Rooms are nice, they have an extensive free breakfast with fruit, toast, bagels, waffles, yogurt, eggs etc. And the best deal is they only charge $10 total for a weeks parking and will shuttle you to Bellingham airport! If you park longer than a week, its $5.00 per day after the 7 day price which is still the best rate going. Bathrooms are clean, big TV with cable and fridge and microwave in each room. They even packed a take away breakfast for me the day I left because I was out before the 6am normal breakfast time.

The room was fine, but the ceiling was "low" so felt a bit too tight. the a/c didn't work well so we were boiling at night. To their credit (and this is key), the front desk did volunteer some $ back due to the nonfunctioning a/c. GOOD SERVICE is my conclusion, as many places won't do that and I travel enough to know when hotels are crap and when not. Enjoyed my one night here. Not sure I'd rate it #2 in bellingham, but it's a reasonable hotel.

We were put up at the Heritage Inn because Allegiant Airways cancelled our flight. Heritage Inn is a Best Western Plus so all their rooms have been remodelled with flat screens, small microwave, and a small fridge. Our room #217 did not have a bathtub but a walk in tiled shower. The room is quite pleasant with efficient air conditioning but our beds were very soft. we had 2 queen beds and each of them caved down in the middle. we are used to firmer harder beds, so i didn't find the beds that comfortable.

the full complimentary breakfast was excellent...the room was clean and very nice. we had sausage patties, scrambled egg patties, hard boiled eggs, fresh waffle machines, a wide selection of pastries, breads, and bagels. there is yogurt and cereal and 4 types of juices.

the hotel is in a great location...directly within a 10 min walk to Bellis Fair Mall so it was very convenient. they offer a complimentary shuttle to and from bellingham airport.

i gave this property 5 stars because of the excellent service we received from the front desk staff...so patient with us by letting us use their phone to call the airlines even when we were on hold for so long. they always had a smile on their face and let us sit in the lobby for a few hours after check out.

Room Tip: top floor as we were in room 217 and we can hear lots of noise from the people staying above us.

We stayed here one night before flying out of the Bellingham Airport. Love the location near the Bellis Fair Mall, Wal-Mart, I-5 and other shopping and dining. Used the Park and Fly rate which included parking for our vehicle for the 7 days we were away. The shuttle to and from the airport was much appreciated with friendly, prompt service too. Overall, this hotel has a quaint setting, clean rooms, decent continental + breakfast and pretty good value including the 7 days of parking. Will probably book here again if flying out of BLI.

Room Tip: as stated previously, no elevators here, so if hauling in heavy luggage, may want to request a groun...

The title says it all. This hotel is a great place to stay in Bellingham. The rooms were very clean, comfy and quiet. The staff was great and the continental breakfast was excellent including biscuits and gravy, waffles, build your own breakfast sandwiches, etc.

I love this BW+ and I will be staying here and only here from now on. Nice little pool and hot tub, beautiful landscape with a creek running through it. Walking distance to food. Being a Diamond Elite member I was upgraded to a very nice room with kitchenette, dining table and even had dishes. This is exactly what I expect from BW+
