I was initially disappointed that this hotel was right on the busy I-5 freeway since I am a light sleeper and road noise always bothers me. But my concerns were immediately allayed by the warm welcome and care taken by Mandy, at the reception desk. She gave us a room on a high floor, at my request, and it was vitually soundproof. It was also amazingly well appointed, with handsome furnishings in an interesting layout -- more like staying in a B&B than a chain hotel.

Maintenance at this was top-notch, and the service was exceptional. Mandy brought printed out instructions to our room, not once but twice!

The best treat of all was the bed. It was more comfortable than my own, and far superior to the one we had at our next stop, a much pricier resort, We almost came back home through Bellingham just to stay at this property again!

All Best Westerns are not the same. This one is best in class!

Room Tip: As far as I could tell, there is no elevator. The top floor was fine for us as we had minimal lugga...

I always stay at this property when in Bellingham. The staff is attentive, the rooms are very nice, and breakfast is pedestrian but handy. I have not tried out the fitness room or the pool; but they are good amenities.

We loved staying at this hotel. Loved that it had a dresser, big counter space in the bathroom. Last hotel we stayed at (high end hotel) did not have any drawer space, at all, of any kind. It's nice to unpack some and not live out of a bag.

Easy to find, just off the Hwy 5, close to shops.
Staff are all welcoming even at 1am! I travel with two dogs and always stay at this hotel, great pet friendly rooms (although small dogs across the hall barked every time the any doors opened), that is my only complaint.
Comfortable, clean rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lowest floor have pets, so if you are traveling without pets ask for a room on a higher...

Stayed here on a business trip. Hotel has a different layout with multiple buildings, but the rooms are really nice and clean. Obviously have updated the rooms relatively recently. Nice workout facility and a good breakfast included.

The staff is friendly, I loved the bed. I would prefer the pool hours be a little later but understand, some people sleep before 10. The heat light in the bathroom wouldn't turn off, but I didn't report it to the front desk. I would highly recommend this hotel, we had a great experience.
