“Not Going Back!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2008

I stayed here while visiting my son at the nearby university. The price was great ($65), but I am not going back. The motel room was dirty! I pulled back the bedspread and the blanket had hair and dirt on it. The carpet was stained and disgusting, the window did not have a screen, and the bathroom grout was dirty. I had a room on the bottom floor, and the owners kept both outside entrances to the motel open all the time. I did not feel safe knowing anyone could just walk into the hotel.

The AC unit on the wall was noisy, but I could not open the window because I was on the first floor and their was no screen. Even if there was a screen I would not feel save having it open. I requested no maid service (my computer was in the room), but someone came in and took all my towels, and left me with none. I had to go ask for new towels.

The breakfast is a joke. A small dinner plate with some muffins cut in four, and juice. I will spend a little extra money and stay somewhere else. Feel free to ask me any questions.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2006

Decided to spend a night in the Bellingham area and checked out Trip Advisor for accommodation. Was looking for something cheap and clean - this place fit the bill. The bathroom was spotless, the room was clean (king bed with a small seating area), friendly staff and the price was right ($55). The room was quiet and we had a good night's sleep. The only negative was a strong smell from the carpet freshener that was used in the rooms. I would definitely stay again.
