We came with the intention of spending 1-2 nights and extended our stay to 4! Part of that decision was being charmed by Bellingham, but an equally huge part was the kind and confident staff and comfort of the rooms at the Best Western Heritage Inn.
The location is great--just off of I-5, across from the mall and several restaurants, and adjacent to an excellent Mexican restaurant (went twice) and drug store with everything a weary traveler might need, including snacks, clothes, toiletries, and alcohol. The breakfasts are hot and consistent with free hot breakfast. The in-room Keurig coffee maker was a nice touch, as were the windows that actually opened so we could enjoy the beautiful blooming cherry blossoms and sound of rushing creek just outside. The mini-fridge was handy for late night leftovers and drinks. There is a hot tub/jacuzzi spa with all glass enclosure opening to the trees.
This place is a great home away from home for those traveling in and through Bellingham, WA. Judging by the cars int he parking lot, many Canadians passing through have already discovered the gem that it is. Highly recommended..
