“surprisingly quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

I was worried about how close this hotel is to the freeway, but once we were inside it was as quiet as if we were in the country. The room was nicely appointed, including a DVD player. Breakfast was good. Definitely recommend.

This hotel is very spacious, clean, comfy bed . It is walking distance to mall, Ross dress for less, Marshall's if you are there to shop. They only thing negative about the room was it smelt like smoke even though it is non smoking. Just make sure when booking, you request a never smoked in room. Staff great and friendly.

Dear gammaof3,
Thank you for your most recent stay with us, and for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. I am happy to see our convenient location close to major shopping worked well for you. However, I am troubled to read your room had a smoke odor. Our property has been 100% non-smoking for over six years, and all of our rooms were totally renovated in 2009. In the future, please alert the Front Desk right away so we may move you to a room with no unpleasant odor. Again, thank you for sharing your experience and I do hope we are able to welcome you back soon!

Kindly,
Carlee Sanders

I am typically a Marriott person, but decided to give this hotel a try based on mostly positive Trip Advisor ratings. Previous customers were spot on, the hotel was amazing; clean, helpful staff, comfortable bed, nice shower, and convenient location. Would definitely stay there again!

Beds are too high. Had to pull over a large wingback chair next to the bed so my mother could get in and out of the bed. For myself who has a higher bed this was hard to get into as well due to the beds been so HIGH.

Dear Gloria H,
Thank you for sharing your experience with us regarding your most recent stay. I am saddened to see we were not able to provide you with a solution regarding the bed height. In the past we have been able to lower our beds for guests, and we also provide step stools if needed. I hope you will consider giving us another chance to provide you with a superior guest experience. Feel free to contact me directly so I may personally handle your reservation at 1-360-647-1912.

This is our Go To Best Western when we have a flight out of Bellingham. John at the front desk is simply excellent (but all the others are too). We have stayed in standard rooms and found them to be fine. As I have a Best Western client card we get automatic upgrades and can say the suites are very nice too. Really comfy beds! I find it a perk to be in a room where you can actually open the window to let in a summer breeze (as opposed to larger 'sealed' hotels) so that is a nice feature in these rooms. Fresh cookies are set out in the lobby in the afternoon -- another great touch. The breakfasts are good too. Tip: For dinner walk next door to the Mi Mexico family restaurant as we enjoy their food, drinks, and service every time we visit.

Room Tip: The suites are especially nice but the standard rooms are good value.

I stayed here two nights, a night before and after my climbing trip in first week of July. The hotel staff is friendly and was helpful in making travel arrangements. The rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast is good and the location is great. At a few minutes walking distance you have great restaurants like Mi Mexica, Thai House, Boston's Pizza, etc.

If you are climbing with AAI you get a discount on a standard room. The AAI van picks you up at around 6:40 am from the hotel and drops you back after your trip. The hotel also provides an airport pick up / drop off service and is helpful if you are arriving at Bellingham airport by a flight or a shuttle from Seattle.

For those of you who stay regularly at Best Western, the group is running a promotion where you get a night free for every 3 nights of stay (separate reservations) within a certain period.

Room Tip: If you are not renting a car and have a lot of luggage, request for a room in the same building as t...
