We stayed in room 204, it has a panoramic water view and an enormous bathroom with a separate shower and jacuzzi tub. There's a pony wall beside the tub with sliding doors to block off the top half for privacy, and if they are open you can see the water view or watch tv from the tub. The restaurant there... More

We just celebrated another anniversary at the Chrysalis. The hotel is nice with a fantastic location overlooking the bay. We had a comfy king bed, great soaking tub and a fireplace. Parking is easy, service was friendly and the location is great. We didn't walk into Fairhaven because it was cold and raining. We had dinner and breakfast at Keenan's.... More

There is so much to discuss about an outing to the Chrysalis. The whole package, things Inside and Outside however really adds up to a great experience. So here goes. Our recent early September stay was for two weekday nights. Around $240 per night. At the high end, to me, but we were very happy with the stay. Our Room,... More

I've never stayed at a $400/night hotel before, but this was our wedding. The Chrysalis is fantastic overall, but poor for sleeping. The good: our corner suite was amazing in the daytime. Huge, nice, comfortable, stunning views and lots of ways to enjoy them, nice bed and the dual shower heads was super fun when you have one cold and... More

My wife and I stayed at the Chrysalis Inn & Spa on July 8th and 9th. Over the years we have been very loyal clients of the inn staying over 20 nights since the inn was built. Over the years we have seen the Inn change from a quiet and quaint establishment to a less than restful and relaxing inn... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Chrysalis! We had one of the wonderful full bay view rooms, worth every penny! Staff is just happy to serve. Food at the Inn's restaurant, Keenan's at the Pier, is fantastic. We were staying at THE place to be at for Happy Hour in all of Bellingham/Fairhaven! It's where the locals go and we... More

they charge extra for the water view and you get to wake up 3 times during the night to hear the train go by directly under your window. i really do not think the extra for the water view is worth it.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved the room, especially the huge window seat. We had a king suite on the 3rd floor and while you certainly heard the train it did not keep us up at night. Amazing views and sunset located right on the boardwalk and super close to Fairhaven shops and restaurants. Will... More

Nice location, great view of the water with close proximity to the pier for walking. The restaurant was good and the beds comfortable. Bring ear plugs, a sound machine or be a heavy sleeper because it is Right by the train tracks and they run all night.
