“Clean, though often booked full”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel more than 10 times in the past few years. It is clean, comfortable and has a friendly staff. A continental breakfast is available in a breakfast room and in the summer you can eat your breakfast on the patio under an umbrella! (On pleasant days guests can chat, read or visit on this patio.) Breakfast fare is a spare continental breakfast...waffles, yoghurt, toast, cereal, juice, and tv. A regular shuttle connects this hotel to the Skagit Casino, which is less than half a mile away. This hotel is a better bet than its sister hotel, The Skagit Casino Hotel, because it has breakfast. Book in advance, even during the week is my advice as we have been turned away when they have a full house, esp on the weekends. More luxurious accommodation is available at the Skagit Casino Hotel...luxurious meaning hot tub, fire place etc but NO BREAKFAST. (They have a restaurant and dining room for Skagit guests...in the casino.) This hotel is about 5 miles north of Burlington, Washington. It is accessed off I-5 at Exit 236. And we have even won a few dollars in the casino. Not the best bet for families as access to the swimming pool is by shuttle to the...you guessed it... Skagit Casino Hotel.

Room Tip: If you want a king, or non smoking, state this when you make your reservation.

Went for a shopping trip with my sister down to Bellingham / Mount Vernon and stayed at The Skagit Ridge Hotel. As with the few times we've stayed before, we had a great stay. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the rooms are tidy, there is almost no noise at night and the parking is right outside. The beds and pillows are SO comfortable! If you want to take a trip over to the Skagit casino, they even offer a free shuttle for the 3 minute drive. The free continental breakfast is nice (3-4 types of juices, coffee, tea, hot chocolate to drink; waffles, cereals, toasts, fruit etc to eat) and we've never had trouble finding a table to sit at. The prices are very reasonable -- especially if you are a member of the Skagit casino club since you`ll save $10 per night. The only thing I wish they had this time is the coupons that would get us free $5 to spend on slots -- otherwise, I can`t find any faults to this place!

Room Tip: Sign up as a member of The Skagit casino`s club rewards card and you`ll save $10 per night.

Stayed here with a tour group and was very impressed. Hotel is new, everything is very fresh & clean, totally non smoking. Rooms are very large, well laid out, with every amenity required. Breakfast was more than adequate and the attendant cheerfully supplied any requests. Overall, staff was outstanding, opened up the breakfast area early for our group. Shuttle to casino is convenient, scheduled or on demand.

Only concern I had was that my room had a connecting door, which as a solo woman I do not like. The desk clerk told me all of the rooms are connecting, except for a few on the end. I don't understand the logic of that.

After staying at the Skagit Casino Hotel a few times this was our first visit to the Ridge and we loved it. The hotel is smoke free unlike the casino hotel which makes a huge difference.
The check-in was smooth and helpful, Taylor was extremely friendly as were the other clerks. The room was clean, quiet and well maintained. The breakfast is basic but the friendly attendent was there the whole time restocking. There is no pool but for a $5 fee you can use the pool at the casino. The shuttle runs every 15 minutes, check your seat before sitting because wet bathing suits may have been on it before you.

We booked the executive suite, with jacuzzi. One of the best rooms ever. Huge double shower, jacuzzi, large spacious bathroom, living room, and bedroom. Two wide flat screen TVs. Lovely antique furnishings in living room. Very comfy bed, and separate climate control in bedroom and living room. Outstanding breakfast included in the price. Great base to stay in for exploring the North Cascades National Park, which was breathtaking. Be sure to get the Rewards Card, free from the Skagit Casino across the road. The card offers $20 discount per night on your room rate, and discounts on meals in the Casino restaurants. The buffet dinner was second to none. I would stay here again anytime, we loved it.

Room Tip: Book early for Exec Suite, there's only one!

We`stayed here one night on a trip to Vancouver BC. Wonderful, big room, friendly employees, a $20 discount on the room rate if you take the time to get a player's card the the casino across the street. If you're used to a low carb breakfast, there's only yogurt (unless you want to eat out of the little tubs of peanut butter and cream cheese). No hard boiled eggs, as is typical up there.

We were there a week ago with my two kids. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Very satisfied with the friendly service. Breakfast could have been improved with some eggs or cut up fresh fruits. I dont think eggs costs much out in USA.
