Thank you for your review. We are sorry the hot tub was out of order. It had a leak in one of the pumps and it was discovered too late to be fixed that day since our maintenance staff had already gone home for the day. We fixed it the following day. Which items were missing from breakfast? If something had run out, you could have notified the staff working breakfast so they could restock the items. Thanks

The staff was very nice, but the smell of cigarettes from the smoking rooms permeated the building. The room was very rundown and had extremely creepy cartoon bear curtains that were stained and almost had us looking for another hotel room.

Sorry for your experience here. We will try more careful about smell in the corridor. This building is a bit old, so we can not change the smoking rooms to non-smoking right away. Besides I did not realize the bear curtain make you uncomfortable. We will change those right away. Thank for the constructive comments.

Travelodge Bellingham

The staff, room and location were all OK. The bed was hard, and the pillows thin.

consumer beware

Was traveling on business. I don't normally stay overnite in bellingham but, I had a early morning appointment and thought it wise to just spend the night. I booked my reservation through the travel website and went to dinner. After dinner I went to the hotel to check in. Upon my arrival I was told that there was no reservation confirmed for me. No big deal the hotel did not appear busy so I requested a single non-smoking room. I was told that there was none available. I checked the condition of the smoking room and deemed it unacceptable. I went and found other accommadations. Much to my surprise the next day when I find my credit card was charged for the stay. I have spent countless hours on the phone trying to get a resolution. Basiclly the Manager is refusing to credit my stay because I did not provide a confirmation number. I was never asked for one. I do not see how providing a confirmation number would have made a non-smoking room appear. I simply cannot fathom charging someone for a service you were unable to provide. I did not find the managment staff at this facility to be gracious or accommadating. The managment went as far as to tell me I had tried checking into the wrong hotel. Well, I checked map quest and I was at the correct hotel.

Utterly horrible

I was taking my husband to Las Vegas for his 40th birthday and chose this hotel due to proximatey and price to the Bellingham airport. Our room was smelly like mold and had stains on the ceiling, even the bedding smelled moldy, I'm asthmatic and spent most of my sleepless nite wheezing. This hotel was extremely NOISYthe person staying above us was up until almost 2 or 3am in the morning, walking around, stamping his feet, jumping and doing heaven knows what on the bed, We called the front desk and complained about the noise as we had an early morning flight and nothing was done. When we checked out in the morning, we again expressed our concerns about the condition of our room and the noise in the hotel. The woman at the desk was very adament with us and NOT ACCOMODATING at all, she offered us a $ discount for our inconvenience and was quite rude to us. I wanted my money back and they made no effort. I WOULD NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN, it is a total dump, and the owners are rude and not accomodating.

Used the room when visiting for a family weekend at WWU. \nIf you are just need a place to sleep, this is great, not a big price. Second floor room was nicer then the first floor. One outside door looks bad. It has a new breakfast room. Breakfast was donuts and danish, fruit and juice. First floor smells strongly of smoke but the second floor didn't smell. Room didn't smell either. Check out was fast. \nFlat pillows, so ask for more. Bathroom very clean and seemed to be updated.

dont expect more than a 1/4 star

The hotel is badly worn down. The place reeks of cigarettes, even in the non-smoking rooms. The room was bare bones and had broken fixtures. Rollaway beds were not available unlike stated.
