This was our first visit to a GuestHouse Inn. Given the more economy price, we were anticipating a stay of like quality. We were pleasantly surprised that the room was very clean & comfortable, the service was pleasant & the continental breakfast was above average. A few concerns: bathroom sink would drain painfully slow, the toilet required multiple flushes, and... More

There are good things about this hotel. It's usually where we stay in Bellingham because it's the best "value" hotel we are aware of in Bellingham. It seems to be generally well run. We've always found the front desk staff pleasant and attentive. The hotel put in new mattresses several years ago, and they are reasonably firm and pretty comfortable.... More

I stayed recently for two nights at this hotel. My room was very clean, decently-sized, and the hotel was quiet (ask for a room on the non-freeway side). An ample breakfast was included w/the room rate. The front desk staff were enormously helpful and friendly. Great location -- only minutes away from Whatcom Falls, downtown, the WWU campus, and Fairhaven.... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this property for the price. The room was clean and comfortable, with no noise as we were on the other side from the highway.

Thank you so much for your review and the suggestion for the cable box. You are spot on about how pulling the box a bit forward does wonders. Sometimes when dusting, the box will slip back and not receive the signal from the remote. I also appreciate your candor and your kind words about our staff. They are a hard... 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
