“Christmas Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

I booked a room at the Best Western in Bellingham for my girlfriend's daughter and grandson on Christmas day evening, so they wouldn't have to drive home that night. We have done this before and it has always been great, however this year they must have gotten some new beds and my girlfriend's daughter had a hard time getting onto the bed. If fact she hurt her leg. Upon checkout, she mentioned the problem and they say that they have stools, so if you have short legs, be sure to ask for the stool. Other than that the stay was very nice and we will book it again next year.

Dear BobBellingham - Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your recent experience at the Best Western Plus Heritage Inn. I am so glad that you choose us for your families travel needs during the holidays. We recently upgraded our beds throughout the hotel and they are a bit on the tall side. I am sorry to hear they created a leg injury attempting to get onto the bed. We do have stools available and I apologize for any inconvenience this caused during your stay. I am glad to hear that everything else was enjoyable and we look forward to your next stay with us.

Best Wishes,

Tamara Addis

Really, my title sums it up. This hotel is cozy, comfortable and clean. The staff are super friendly and genuinely interested in providing service. If I had a complaint, the breakfast, although free, is completely uninspiring: just the usual array of cereal, toast, egg beater cooked eggs & breakfast sausage. But the breakfast room was clean and roomy. Def happy to stay there again.

Such a lovely room we had @ the Heritage Inn, Bellingham. Right across from Bellis Fair Mall. The accommodations were very modern & luxurious. With complete amenities. A wet Bar, Microwave, Fridge & Keurig coffee maker. The price was much less than these accommodations warranted. I wish we could stay here again very soon.

No elevators so if you can't "do stairs" you may want to ensure you get a ground floor. Fantastic staff, from the nightshift, dayshift,housekeeping, and shuttle driver. Some rooms need a little refreshing but overall a good place and close to lots of restaurants.

Actually booked this place by mistake. Stayed at another best western 5-10 min south last year that we also enjoyed. But glad we had the opportunity to stay here as it was a very enjoyable. It was a Christmas shopping trip and everything is within a couple of minutes. The service and room was very good. Loved the bed and room décor. The breakfast was very good. Overall value , comfort and convenience was excellent.

Would recommend this hotel. I have stayed here more than 12 times and it is the best hotel in the Bellingham Area. If you have an early flight out of Bellingham it is great for a very small fee of $10 you can leave your vehicle for a week at the hotel and they will shuttle you to and from the airport. The staff at this hotel are superb and are the best that I have had the pleasure of meeting. The breakfast room is great and very relaxing before you head out on trip or to do a day of shopping in Bellingham
