“Do not recommend.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

The price was right but I wish I would have driven a little further to find a better place to stay. The tile floors and carpet were horribly dirty. I had to walk around in my shoes. The sheets had holes in the and the mattresses were pretty bad. I rate this overall as a 2.

Expectations are everything. If you are looking for an upscale vacation destination, you'll probably be disappointed, if however, you are looking for conveniently located, reasonably priced accommodations, this can work for you. Cocusa has seen its better days, and probably worse days as well. It's an older unit that appears to be getting better. The paint is fresh; the units surround a central courtyard with pleasant plantings and a swimming pool. Ground floor rooms have direct access to the courtyard from within their rooms. The motel is located just off I5, at the Burlington exit, It’s an easy in and out for I5 travelers; however, If you are west bound on HW 20, a U-turn will be required.

The lobby is clean and bright; a very pleasant desk attendant, along with an affordable room rate set the tone for a comfortable stay. The restaurant / bar next door were closed during my stay; however, restaurants of all types, from fast food, to up-scale steak houses are all within a 5 minute drive. A limited continental breakfast is provided each morning in the lobby; fruit, cereal, pastries, muffins, coffee and other beverages are available. ..

My handicap configured room included 2 queen sized beds, one hospital style with built in electric head elevation and a vibrator (no coins required), plus a second bed for family members or an attendant. There was complete wheel chair access to the bath room, sink and shower with proper hand rails on the back and side wall by the toilet.

The TV and other furnishing were old, but serviceable; a small fridge (about 2"X2") and microwave were provided; however, the fridge was on the floor and being small, was difficult to access.

The bottom line: You get more than you pay for, and I'll stay here again.

Room Tip: Bottom floor rooms have direct access to a very nice courtyard and swimming pool.

When u arrive on a derby weekend and large sporting event to Bellingham and all the hotels close to Bellingham airport are full, u may have to pick a place u usually wouldn't. It was cheap, the courtyard grass/pool area is actually very nice. The rooms are .... Well used. The rooms have all been smoked in so the smell.... Not fresh, and I'm not very good at limbo but the shower head being at a height of 5 feet really gives you an opportunity to practice. The staff and even the other guest were all very friendly so I'm trying to sell the good things. Go here as a place to sleep with no expectations and it should be ok

Just like the title says, the location is nice, howevere there is a point one must think of "when is it to cheap", I am not saying to spend hundreds each night for hotel rooms but when you do pay for your room, you expect it to be clean, and bright, which this place was not. I mentioned my issues by email the next day to the owner and they advised me I should have sayed somewhere else.

The breakfast was all prepackaged junk food.

I come to Skagit Valley for La Conner Workshops. Cocusa is the BEST place to stay. It is close, clean, reasonable highway access and the people have been delightful. All I want is a clean place to sleep with working plumbing and no drunken parties. Cocusa is luxury by these standards and the cost allows me more paint.

Room Tip: I'll pay attention this year and write a review after August 2013.

We have booked this motel for our weekend day Shopping, we had a relaxed and enjoyable stay over here.

1) The Customer service was excellent, particularly Ricky the staff who was in charge at the front desk who was extremely helpful.
2) The motel location was great near to all amenities (near to gas station just less than half a miles to all the stores, shop, mall and different restaurants).
3) The room size was as-usual regular 2 Queen Size bed with TV, small dining table with two chairs, a small fridge and microwave. The room was neat and clean.
4) It was at the main road junction but strangely not much sound disturbance though I heard Railway Horn sound once.
5) Free Parking.
6) Morning continental breakfast was average (Was not so good, it was OK, for the money you are paying to have all these facilities).
7) I booked non-smoking room, initially I was worried while booking motel (as I am non-smoker and was about to stay with a wife and a small kid) but the room didn’t
have any smoking smell at all because people while booking staff\clerk
they promise that it is non-smoking room, but once you reach there used to be strong smoking smell in the room or odour smell. But ironically this motel’s non-smoking room doesn't have neither any smoking smell nor any kind of odour smell (Comparing a stay in Days Inn hotel in Edison, New Jersey it was totally awful experience)
5) Based on the above mentioned reason, I went on to extend one day more stay over there. I would say it was strong worth for your money. I would definitely love
to stay over there again and even recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: I have stayed in Room no 16 (Non-Smoking room)
