I was in Bellingham for a two day event and decided to stay in town rather than drive up every day. Best decision I made. The room was clean and comfortable. I was able to get plenty of rest and relaxation each night before heading into work. This will definitely be my go-to stay when up North again.

Stayed here for two nights as we came down from Canada to do some shopping. The value for price is not as good, as the Cdn dollar has fallen over the past year compared to the greenback, but still was a pretty standard HI express. Clean, comfortable and a decent breakfast set-up. We would likely stay here again, although it...

Came to Bellingham to tour WWU. Booked this hotel because I get rewards points. The hotel was breath of fresh air. Check-in was a breeze. The hotel room was extremely clean and very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was a bit cozy but the food choices were perfect. The hotel had an overall "peaceful" feeling. This is a wonderful place...

Came here after leaving another hotel local to the area (the other hotel was like something out of a horror movie). After such a bad experience at the previous hotel, getting to stay somewhere like this really lifted my spirits. Unlike the previous hotel, this room had been cleaned...thoroughly. Sheets were crisp and white, the room even smelled amazing. Ample...

We had no problems with our weekend stay. Staff was nice. Rooms were very clean and nice. Both nights were very quiet. Breakfast was yummy and well operated. We loved it! We will definitely stay again!

I switched to this hotel after my horrible Rodeway Inn experience. The staff is super friendly, the room was spotless and smelled fresh, comfortable bed and plenty of pillows, quiet, great shower, and convenient location. The breakfast isn't fancy, but it was convenient and did the trick (much better than a fast food option, too). Plenty of food options for...

We decided to stop and stay at this location before venturing into BC for a quick getaway. Being platinum IHG members we were recognized as such upon check in. Our king room was appointed with all the items one would expect from HIX. The bed was comfortable with a selection of pillows to choose from. The wifi /speeds were very...

We had a nice overnight stay here in a recently updated room. Two very comfortable beds, nice clean fresh decorations, window that opens about 2 inches, large fridge, microwave, coffee and tea. Lovely fresh smart bathroom with new fittings, new carpet, curtains, etc. Room had nice fresh smell. It was also very quiet, although it looked out over the parking...

Last minute reservation - we were lucky to get a room due to the Bellingham snowstorm and thousands without power. The hotel is undergoing a major renovation but once in our room, no sign/sound that work was in progress - our king deluxe was one of the recently finished rooms equipped with coffee maker, fridge, microwave and even a bag...

Due to a power blackout, we stayed here for one night. What a pleasant surprise! They were undergoing a renovation which affected our floor but certainly not our room. It was beautifully redone with a coffee maker, large fridge/freezer and microwave. The large screen TV and FAST free WI-Fi was a welcome treat after 2 days of intermittent power. In...
