The rooms were fine but nothing special. Staff were friendly and helpful. Small lobby. Small breakfast. Bagels. Waffles. Fruit. Cereal. Yogurt. Only one table to eat at and a couple couches. We had a table and chairs in our room so we ate there. It was ok for a good price.

First time staying at this inn, and it won't be the last! I have stayed in this area before, but decided to try somewhere different. Nice curbside appeal, and when we walked into our room, we both said "Oo, this is nice!" Lovely staff day and night. Decent breakfast and lots of coffee! Super impressed by everything including the price!

This hotel is an incredible deal. The property seems carefully maintained, everything in the room worked perfectly, carpet/paint new - perhaps just renovated. Just two minutes from WWU and within walking distance of several restaurants. The only complaint is that the in-room dining menu seems to be from a previous hotel owner, so the service is advertised but when you call, the delivery service states it's not available. Really not a problem, since we could cross the street for a great meal.

We stayed here with our daughters and won’t be staying here again. The carpets needed to be cleaned, scratches and dings in the woodwork and old furniture, pubic hair in the shower and lots of loud traffic on the stairs during the night. There was a sign indicating that the door on the backside of the property was locked around 10PM but this was clearly not the case, or people had managed to have access. The noise woke us up multiple times...like 8-10 times-until it finally stopped about 4:00 AM. I’m not sure what all the coming and going all night was about but doubt it was a good thing. I’m surprised at the positive comments.

Came and stayed for one night on a weekend trip from Canada. For an Inn at this value in Bellingham this place exceeded my expectations. Would recommend to anyone stopping through Bellingham. Great location just off the highway, and I like having a variety of restaurants in walking distance. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Continental Breakfast was pretty good, lots to choose from and all reasonable quality. Lastly, we really liked the pool table in the exercise room, which is open to 11pm. Good times there. Looking forward to staying again sometime!
