I really liked this hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms, great location, pool, free parking and free breakfast. Honestly what more could you ask for, I'd definitely stay here again on my next trip to Bellingham. Oh and it was very close to the big mall and lots of other shopping is just a few minutes drive. Tons of restaurants just... More

In my hotel stays, the quality of the bed matters. The bed was so sub-par that that I would have rated this hotel 2-stars. But since everything else in the hotel was of 4-star quality, I gave it 3-stars overall. Honestly, I wouldn't stay here again because the bed was so terrible. I was in a first floor room. If...

The hotel is just off from I-5, but when you get off the freeway, it is a little hard to find the exact location. But the front desk personnel is very friendly, rooms are spacious. It includes a nice full breakfast buffet.

We were on vacation and booking rooms as we went along. We wanted to stay in Seattle, but could not find a moderately priced, clean hotel anywhere in Seattle due to the Mariners/Blue Jays game.

- Room was fairly spacious relatively comfortable stay. - Front desk was average as far as friendliness. - Biggest issue was late night noise one evening/morning after 1am - I could hear screaming/crying in the hallway, sounded like it could be a domestic disturbance and/or drunkenness.
