Staff sucks, hotel is way out of date, you can hear up stairs quest peeing. Got a hotel staff member that came to the room at 9:50 at night, we were out side smoking saying we were to load and some one here is smoking POT. NO WE WERE NOT.

Older but clean, well maintained and good service. Value spot for visiting tulip festival and La Conner or the gulf islands. Fair continental breakfast. Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms showing age but were very clean. Only negative for some may be that you can hear the train horns sounding between 4:30 and 5:30 every morning.

This hotel may have been a tad outdated, but kudos for making small updates and keeping your hotel very clean! The customer service was beyond exceptional and we appreciated the upgrade to a suite when we ended up w/ 2 teenagers instead of 1 and a child. The one downfall was the train horn all night long.

Of course, if they do renovate and update- price will go up too. Room is small, bed uncomfortable, there's a bug on the floor that I had to swat, bathroom small, exhaust fan noisy. It's obvious that someone tampered with the door security chain as 1 screw fell off. Now the pros: close to I5, if you only stay 1...

This is an older motel with exterior corridors, but well maintained. It has easy access to the freeway and local area roads. We were there to see the tulip fields and migrating waterfowl. We saw both in very high numbers. There were many acres of daffodils and tulips in bloom; tens of thousands of snow geese and hundreds of trumpeter...

Clean rooms, low rates, close to the I5 and a decent breakfast. The beds are super comfortable. Like the fact that you have an option of either a balcony or ground floor patio. Have satyed here a number of times and will stay here again.

We stayed here because we've been here before for both business and pleasure. The location is excellent and the value for a Best Western property is very good. Driving distances to casinos, Bellingham, Anacortes, Arlington, and the city are all reasonable

Just off freeway, clean and comfortable. Older motel but refreshed with tidy rooms and modern new bedding. Surprisingly quiet room. Strong free wifi. Plenty of eating places in short walking distance. Friendly staff.
