We stayed on a Sat night before our early flight from BLI. The hotel was sold out that night and 3 of us were in a one queen room. There were no more cribs for our son but Alisha? was wonderful and brought us lots of extra pillows and blankets. I built him a fort under the desk which he...

I was checked in late at night by a very energetic and friendly Joanie. She was funny and knowledgeable of the city and it nightlife. Cody is also great as was the breakfast.

After a last minute change in travel plans we found ourselves needing a hotel in Bellingham close to midnight. Most places were booked up or had ridiculously high rates. We found a good deal on this property and although we were wary of GuestHouse as the one in our neighborhood is pretty awful, we saw the good reviews and gave...

Nice friendly atmosphere. Staff went above and beyond for the smallest things for our stay. This is a non smoking building which made the fear of that old hotel smell not a problem. Common areas were very clean and decorated well. Free breakfast with a waffle machine! Room was quiet, clean and spacious. Will only stay here in the future!

An average hotel for an average price. Staff are good, helpful, and friendly. Good location for freeway access as well as downtown. Good coffeeshop next door, (a local Woods).

I have stayed here at least 4 times in the past two years and overall I feel the hotel is good value for the Bellingham/Mount Vernon area. Motels in this area are surprisingly expensive considering the small town location but then again Bellingham sees alot of tourists going north or south through the Canadisn border. I have chosen this hotel...

Thank you for taking the time to share your stay. I apologize that you were unsettled by a gentleman in the breakfast room. I believe I understand the situation. If the room was dark, the breakfast room was closed. Breakfast is served 6-10am. After ten a.m., supplies such as plates and utensils are available at the front desk. I'm sorry...
