This is a budget style motel right off the I-5 in Bellingham. The reception was cheerful and efficient, the room was small with a single queen bed but it was comfortable and the pillows were even quite good. The place was very clean. The free continental breakfast was really not good, starting with the cheerless room in which it is...

I am glad we were able to provide you a clean and comfy stay. I am sorry you did not enjoy your breakfast that is included in your stay. We get great compliments on the expanded continental. Perhaps next time you will find breakfast more to your liking. Thank you for sharing your experience with us and we hope to...

Without a reservation, we were fortunate to get a room. The room was ample size, had comfortable beds, and a complimentary breakfast. It's situated right by the I-5 so the highway traffic was non-stop noise. The staff in the breakfast room were efficient and friendly. The front desk staff were incompetent and very slow; they had trouble putting through one...

Thank you for sharing about your stay. I do wish you had contacted me directly in regards to your credit cards. We did have issues with both of your cards, but the desk clerk did work very hard trying to work with the difficulties with your cards. I am wondering if one of the amounts you see was the authorization...

Stayed one night. Wouldn't stay for more. If you're flying in or out of the airport, or visting WWU, this a good place to stay. Rooms are small, but clean. Can't stay I recommend the breakfast. Good solid room for the money.

Needed a place to stay for a freshman event at WWU. This hotel was 5 minutes north of the campus. We arrived after 10pm and not only did I still have a room but had been upgraded to a King size bed. The room was clean with microwave, fridge, hairdryer, etc. Breakfast was free with cereal, premade omelet, waffles, fruit...Really...

I stayed here when flying out of the Bellingham airport. I was leary at first because of the close proximity to the I-5, but I requested a room on the rear side of the hotel, and did not experience any traffic noise at all! Although an older property, it is clean and well kept. The room was comfortable and very...

I stayed two nights on a business trip. The location, while not downtown, is only 3 minutes away by car (or a 15 minute walk). The rooms were clean and fairly spacious. The rooms also included a coffee maker and mini-fridge. The free WiFi worked great - which for me is a huge plus. The front desk staff were great....

Clean. Right next to freeway bit noise was not an issue. Good size rooms. As this is 2014 I would expect wifi services in the room. Breakfast available but haven't tried it. Coffee maker in the room. Their wifi service is AWFUL and they know it.

Excellent access, friendly smart staffing (thanks Sonya), clean, bright and a great price. I looked at several places to stay in Bellingham and this is a terrific value. Location is central to Bellingham and you can be on I5 in less than a minute.

This Memorial Day weekend (2014) our family and friends stayed here for our son's wedding. It's easily found off I-5, on Lakeway Drive. Breakfast was included: the usual bagels, muffins, cereal, and you can also make your own waffle. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The only possible problem is if you are on the I-5 side, you do...
