Good location, clean room, comfortable bed, and breakfast included. Price was good too. Just one slight disappointment. We stayed for 2 nights, and when the room was cleaned after the first night, the supplies in the room were not replenished. Shampoo, soap, cups, and coffee were not replenished, even though they were used. I was able to get them thru... More

The Guesthouse Inn Bellingham is a charming hotel adjacent to I-5 and a quick drive from Larrabee State Park as well as the Historic District (Fairhaven). Very clean. Friendly staff. Decent (free) breakfast. Very reasonable price. A nice place for a weekend getaway.

It was a great location, albeit right on the freeway. The bed was comfortable. The two bummers were the girls that got home after midnight, and we could hear them through the walls. The second bummer was that the mini fridge was loud and rattled, but the remedy was to unplug it. We accidentally left our room key in the... More

We were on a trip with the entire family and I was surprised with the location and the overall experience of this hotel. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The continental breakfast was ok. No complaints at all. Would recomend this hotel as a cheap options.

Rooms are clean, bed is comfy. Hotel is easily accessible from the road. Bathrooms very small with wash hand basins in the main room rather than in the bathroom. Was a shame about the loud humming noise all night and the breakfast was absolutely awful, staff were clearing it away half an hour before it's due to finish. Not great.... More

Visited Bellingham, WA for our Granddaughter's high school graduation. Couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay. Free wifi, fridge, cable TV and clean rooms. The staff was very helpful in providing directions to area attractions. The breakfast was tasty and the dining area was kept tidy. The coffee was the best. Located right off of the highway. And they... More

The GuestHouse Inn in Bellingham is not flashy or fancy, but it is clean, reasonably priced, and conveniently located just off the I-5 if you're heading south toward Seattle or going north toward Vancouver. The free "continental breakfast" was lacking, so we went elsewhere.

This hotel, while convenient to our needs, was more run down than anticipated. The general maintenance was not very professional looking. The staff was in a variety of dress despite some having a semblance of uniform but not as professional as other similar market level hotels. Sylvia, the front office receptionist was very professional and accommodating. The breakfast was rather... More

Based on the affordable price and the plain, faded exterior, I was expecting a decent, nothing-special stay in a budget hotel. I'm happy to report that the Guesthouse Inn exceeded my expectations! While the exterior could use a fresh coat of paint, the interior was incredibly clean and modern. Our room, located just a few doors from the lobby, included... More
