Booked this stay through 'Hotwire' and wasn't disappointed to be staying here. Price was very good and it was a quick one night stay and out. Now, all I ever need is cleanliness and a comfortable bed. The Guesthouse Inn was clean but VERY outdated. Our two Queen room had a massive wall unit in it with an old school... More

We stayed there for our first time as we were flying out of Bellingham. The hotel was nice.... no complaints. They offered free parking for 7 nights, while several charged for this. They also offered free shuttle to and from the airport. They offered a hot continental breakfast but we slept in and missed it. Would definitely stay there again... More

The Guesthouse is located very near downtown and the WWU campus. It is right near the freeway on-ramps so they have easy access to everything in the area. The proximity of the WWU campus was why chose this place but it has easy access to everything. The room was quiet and large. Very clean, very accommodating. The last time we... More

Spent three nights at the GuestHouse Inn earlier this week. My pleasant king size bedded room was comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The cordial, helpful front desk staff added to the enjoyable stay, as did availability of breakfast food items served every morning. And they're included in the price of the room. Dollar for dollar GuestHouse Inn offers good value. The... More

This is a reasonably good basic hotel and was much cheaper than most other hotels in the vicinity. We stayed here in Spring 2013 and again Nov 2013. In fact, we had the same room! and while it is a fairly decent place, there were a couple of things that we noticed on our first visit that have remained unchanged.... More

We stayed the night here as we were flying out of Bellingham International in the morning. Location was good and close to the airport. Hotel decor was dated, as was the comforter on the bed which seemed very worn. Bathroom wall had some wallpaper coming away from the wall at the bottom but otherwise the room seemed in good condition... More

Easily accessible from I-5, though I did not hear the highway noise. The room was small, which was fine for me traveling alone. I had a single queen bed room...perhaps a different room would have more space. Breakfast was your typical motel fare...though people were making their own waffles, which seemed quite popular. Easy access to all of the lovely... More
