“Why??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Why! should I tell you about this Gem. My wife and I just love this little Hotel and it's charm. The I-5 runs right by it, but you would never know. The Hotel is hidden among trees and shrubs and yes a lovely little creek gurgles by which makes you think your in a forest away from the city, but you are not. Please don't tell anybody.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs make sure you are on the ground floor as there are no elevators.

We stayed for one night on the way back from Vancouver. Everyone was super nice, the breakfast buffet was awesome, it included regular and blueberry waffles, eggs, bagels, yoghurt, fruit, juice, coffee, tea, etc. it was great. The ladies at reception were really nice and gave us a good dinner recommendation.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We were very pleased with this nice Best Western property. It had above average amenities, such as microwave, refrigerator and Keurig hot drink maker in each room. The bed was very comfortable. It is a beautiful property, close to the freeway yet the room was very quiet. Our room was on the 3rd floor, the desk clerk asked if that would be a problem as there is no elevator and it had a nice view of the small creek that runs through the property. The room looked more like someone's guest room than a hotel room, very nice. The complimentary breakfast was above average with excellent staff refilling, clearing promptly etc. Cookies at night in the lobby, free newspapers in the morning. Also complimentary airport and train shuttle and you may leave your car parked there while traveling. We would definitely stay here again.

This location is right by the freeway but it's very quiet, even with the window open. The room was very large, the bed was ultra comfortable, the shower had good pressure and the air conditioner was quiet & efficient. And the breakfast room was spacious with many great selections to start your day off. We'll definitely stay here again.

I don't normally post reviews on line, but I felt this hotel provided such outstanding service and value that I would share my experience with other travelers going to Bellingham Washington. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to provide the room type we were looking for. The entire complex is clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were perfect. The biggest surprise were the bath towels, normally most motels/hotels provide the worst sandpaper feeling over bleached towels. These towels were thick, soft, and absorbent, like you would have at home. The room rate was extremely reasonable considering the plushness of the room and the free continental breakfast. Everything at breakfast was fresh and always replenished. When checking in be aware of the delicious cookies adjacent the registration counter, divine cookies. Great value with great customer service.

A good place to stay for access to Western Washington University, and places of interest in Bellingham. Also convenient to visiting Canada. Close access to Interstate 5, yet quiet and secluded in the surroundings. Checkout time offers time for a morning swim in the swimming pool, workout in the fitness center, and other facilities.

We decided last minute to extend our trip to this area and checked into this hotel. We weren't sure what to expect but it was very good. The bed was the best part....oh so comfy! We didn't want to get up, which is why I can't review the free breakfast. It's there, just couldn't tell you how it was. The bathrooms are small but the showers are large and very nice. Overall it was a great stay for a mid price hotel. We would certainly stop again although might request a top floor room as there was some noise from the room above but none from the rooms beside us.
