There is a smell to this unit, I believe it was from smokers at one time + no fan in the bathroom. The shower/tub sits on a shelf but the shelf is not wide enough for your foot- ok to step in but a little difficult to step out if you are 5 foot or shorter. The hide-a-bed frame for... More

For the past four years we have been staying at the Guesthouse Inn in Bellingham. Throughout our stays in the past we have appreciated the service. Recently we arrives at the Guesthouse at four o’clock in the afternoon to check in and were told that our room with a reserved king bed was not ready. It had been a long... More

Hello, I am sorry you encountered these issues. I will address housekeeping about the issues. Check in begins at 3 pm. This does not mean all rooms will be ready at three, as we allow such a late check out. On a full night, we turn about 80 rooms the next day. I am pleased it only was an additional... More

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 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.
