We stayed in the Travel House Inn in Bellingham for a weekend. We were looking for a simple, inexpensive, clean and convenient lodging option for our 2 night stay in Bellingham while we ran in race. Also, it was important to find a hot tub to rest our weary legs after the race. We found all of the above at the Travel House Inn. The location is within minutes of downtown Bellingham, and 12 minutes of the quaint Fairhaven district. I had originally looked into lodging in the Fairhaven, and downtown area but Fairhaven only had a couple of expensive hotels and downtown was booked. Instead, we opted to stay for 55.00 a night at the Travel House Inn (no website yet) - it worked out well since we had a hot tub to relax our aching leg muscles, and a decent bed to sleep in. One note: bring earplugs, the walls are thin, for a few dollars you can buy earplugs and sleep quietly. This place is easy to find - next to the freeway - cheap, clean, close to downtown restaurants and Haggen grocery store (take a left on Meridian and drive 7 minutes to downtown), has a Greek restaurant next door and a outdoor pool and hot tub. If you're looking for decent, cheap lodging - a place to rest your head without breaking the bank then this works well. If you want to stay in a newer, indoor corridor motel, call the Rodeway Inn first, it's next to the Travel House Inn but it costs a bit more. We mainly wanted a place for the weekend that felt safe, clean and convenient to the other neighborhoods of Bellingham. Travel House Inn worked fine for us. The hot tub was the best. In the afternoon, head downtown (going left on Meridian street that the motel is on) and go to the Boundary Bay Brewery, or, explore the Fairhaven shops and restaurants (also a short 4 minute drive from downtown). If you have more time, drive along Chuckanut drive for the lovely San Juan Island views. Have a nice glass of wine and dessert at Village Books in Fairhaven (great view of the bay and not busy like the other restaurants). In summary, stay at the Travel House Inn or the Rodeway Inn, save money and explore Bellingham. Avoid the dull Bellis Fair Mall area (on the other side of the freeway, close the the motel). Go West!
