I was initially disappointed that this hotel was right on the busy I-5 freeway since I am a light sleeper and road noise always bothers me. But my concerns were immediately allayed by the warm welcome and care taken by Mandy, at the reception desk. She gave us a room on a high floor, at my request, and it was vitually soundproof. It was also amazingly well appointed, with handsome furnishings in an interesting layout -- more like staying in a B&B than a chain hotel.
Maintenance at this was top-notch, and the service was exceptional. Mandy brought printed out instructions to our room, not once but twice!
The best treat of all was the bed. It was more comfortable than my own, and far superior to the one we had at our next stop, a much pricier resort, We almost came back home through Bellingham just to stay at this property again!
All Best Westerns are not the same. This one is best in class!
