Stayed there.for one week with no problems. It was located close to Everson and Canada. The beds were clean and comfortable, and the host was very friendly. The owner had just acquired the property and was in the process of upgrading the units.

I especially loved the flowers everywhere and the kindness of the inn keepers. The grounds were relaxing and gorgeous. If I'm ever in the are again I'll stay there. Great price, convenient location and charming. Thanks for the pleasant stay.

Stayed there for four nights on a trip back home. BP was working a shutdown so rooms in the county were hard to come by. I grew up in Whatcom County and I don't remember a time when this motel wasn't here. So yes, it's old. I can't say much about all the rooms because I only stayed in one....

Horrible is an understatement. They have RV sites outside, where I stayed. The bathrooms were non-functioning, and I was told to go to the McDonalds next door to use the bathroom. On top of that, I had smoke from some of the semi-permanent residents who live here, wake me up at 5am, since the 'smokers bench' was right next to...

I will be looking for another place to stay next time I'm near Lynden. Here's what I'll be looking for: A clean environment without odors, reasonable beds, slightly updated furnishings compared to the Windmill Inn. I'm not too picky, and have stayed at econo motels before. This particular establishment is one that I wouldn't return to visit.

We arrived in Lynden after leaving the Days Inn in Mt Vernon where we were so disappointed, and did not stay after seeing the room. We just needed a clean bed to sleep in until the border opened the next morning. I believe that this motel is under new ownership and it looks like they are trying to spruce it...

We arrived in Lynden tired and hungry after a long day of driving ... only to find out it was the last day of the local fair in Lynden. We got the last room and were afraid that it would be unsuitable. Wow ... we were wrong! The room was large and super clean. There was a microwave and fridge,...

I came to town at the last minute to attend a class reunion and this was the only room available for 15 miles...The room smelled good, the sheets and towels were clean and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. You are looking at a place probably 40+ years old with little or no updates. For a room to sleep in get...

I know its the best price around (if they honor the price they listed) I am not a high class person, and my husband might be the farthest thing from a high class person. We were both disgusted. First the light didn't work in the room, the smell was unbearable. and the service was beyond rude and I didn't feel...
