Outdated property, continental breakfast leaves a lot to be desired, property not kept up very well by any means, most of the staff were ok, room was spacious but definitely needs updating especially the bathroom.

This is a very clean and modern motel, with friendly staff, but it suffers from two very serious problems: 1) Slow and unreliable Wi-Fi: The connection is constantly broken, and when it does work, it is very, very slow. The management needs to spend a bit more money to buy sufficient bandwidth to serve the guests. 2) Extraordinarily poor soundproofing:...

Stopover in Bellingham, stayed one night. Hotel is located near Bellis Fair Mall and just off I-5. My room was on the 3rd floor facing the freeway. Doors open directly to outdoor walkway. Lots of freeway traffic noise. Room is average, bedding and towels were clean. OK for a night's stay for myself, but I wouldn't stay there for an...

I recently had occasion to re-visit this location. I was very pleased with their recent updates of the rooms with new furnishings, carpeting, electronics, etc. The front desk personnel were pleasant and professional, helping greatly to make this a very pleasant overnight stay. This is not a high-end property. But it is comfortable, the rooms are spacious, and the place...

Went to see our daughter at college and we stay here. It's clean, staff is friendly and you can't beat the price. Little bit of road noise from the highway but was very restful. Grocery store and shopping close by.

Having stayed at this location many times for over 25 years I can really say that it is in the best shape that I have seen it.. Flat screen TV and the remodel work was well done on my room. I asked for a quiet room and really got it. Was there for only a few hours following an all...

We spent four days there and were pleased with our room and service. The hotel is close to the highway which makes it a bit noisy outside. Inside the noise wasn't noticeable. We like staying there the long drive down from Alaska. Everything we want is on Meridian street and easily accessed. We'll be back.

Econolodge Inn & Suites, Bellingham, Wa I think that this is a great value. It has a worn but well maintained look. The cost is low and our room was clean. While I might prefer a Hyatt, this place is inexpensive, nicely located and works. Probably will stay here again when we want to hang out for a couple of...

It's a convenient location off the interstate and walking distance to Bellis Fair Mall and other shopping, and it is one of the cheapest options in town. So, it does have price/location considerations as a big plus. However, you do get what you pay for and as long as you don't expect too much, you will be fine.

Friendly staff, nice little breakfast, easy to find on the I-5 (right across from Bellis Fair Mall). Large room, however, the pool is small. I would gladly stay here again based on great service and great location
