        Would not stay there again and would not recomned, drug addict and alcoholic's around and staying on top floor of motel.

        Location was good for us

        While the Staff were very polite and help full, the room itself was quite "run-down", ...old T.V., old and worn nightstands.However,Bathroom was clean and fresh. Bed sheets were fresh and neat. Carpet was clean and in good shape. The room did not smell of any smoke.

        The location was good and easy to access the city of Bellingham, wa. Can't beat the price!!!!

        There was mention of 'Complimentary Continental Breakfast' but all I saw was a coffee machine in the lobby.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        ...Very clean rooms and public areas. Also, the facility appears to be well maintained. Courteous and friendly staff.

        There was an overwhelming odor of urine in our bathroom--I would recommend this motel but not this room in the motel. Rates are very reasonable.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        I needed a paper for my orientation at wwu that I had forgotten to print out and the lady at the front was more than happy to print it off for me. I'm very grateful!

        Bathroom was a bit small, however the room was spacious and very nice.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        Only hotel in the area with rooms and the night clerk was very accommodating.

      • Single
        8.2

        Convenient to downtown, wwu, and the ocean

        No pool or exercise facilities.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        The friendly staff and cleanliness of the room.

        The beds are old and have little support left in them. It is like sleeping in a water bed. I would recommend this hotel if you have no problem with beds of this type only.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        Good quality mattress for a budget motel.

        Very limited continental breakfast, competitors have waffle machines and toast.Coffee was very poor, verging on colored water.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Good location from I-5. Lots of restaurants within walking distance of hotel. Our room was quiet. Good parking. Good price.

        Very small breakfast room. Breakfast was not quite ready when we left at 6:30 am. We prefer a totally non smoking hotel. All in all we would stay there again.

      • Single
        10.0

        Just a very comfortable, convenient location. Room and bathroom very clean. It's an older, 60's motel in style, but well maintained, not showing it's age. Located on a busy strip with lots of food choices, shopping options. Near an REI and major grocery. Owners / staff couldn't have been more helpful.

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        Location; clean, fresh paint; updated property.

        Given basement room; airconditioning did not work in room and temperature in room exceeded 90 degrees; office supplied box fan when asked. Window could not be left open because window openning was at ground level in questionable area and was shielded from view of parking lot and street.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The hotel was clean and the room was spacious. Great proximity to the University.

        The "Continental Breakfast" was not worth them even having one.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The proprietors were so helpful, my husband and I took an adventure trip by train to Bellingham and walked to the Hotel, we were greeted very kindly by the owners wife and later helped with transportation by the owner and they were very nice and helpful people. We will stay there again on our next trip to Bellingham.

        The room was very clean and the owners wife gave me extra pillows so that I was very comfortable. The shower pressure was excellent and the Cable service was above the normal (basic+HBO) it was nice to have all the Xfinity Free Movies and our regular shows, they really are a great value.
