Pros: the room and how convenient it was being next to all grocery stores.
Cons: the sauna and breakfast room and food
Location: the location is great next to Fred Meyers, WWU, 711, little Caesars and the organic store there.
My overall experience at the Guest House was great until I had breakfast the next two mornings while I was there. The worker that was in charged of the breakfast area I would have to say was quite dissatisfying. She was very unprofessional and had not exceeded the guests expectations at all. She was also lazy and disorganized. When I had walked into the breakfast room food was running low and the hotel had ran out of fruits that guest had requested. The worker was kind of rude and lacked on doing her job. I also had experience that their sauna was out of service and quote by a house keeper" That the sauna was not in service for several months" I felt that was also pure laziness and a bad rating for the hotel as well. People are there for vacation and professional business trips. Feeling like we had used our money for a luxury is a most and very upsetting if its not at its best.

Get what you pay for.

Pros: It is affordable.
Cons: My room keys never worked, had to keep getting new ones. My internet never worked, this is a real problem who need to get work done.
I checked in at 5 pm and they barley had a room ready when check in is supposed to be at 3pm. It looked like they have a lot of longterm guest that live at the hotel. The internet never worked, which is very frustrating when you are trying to get work done! Rooms were clean, but the hotel is pretty worn down.

Good location, good people

Pros: Location, and comfortable room
Cons: Get rid of the big wardrobe tv stands
Location: On the same road to get to Sudden Valley, Whatcom Falls and Downtown. Right across from two shopping centers, cheap gas and great coffee shop.
This hotel is reasonably priced and is well located for easy access to all of Bellingham. I have stayed at many hotels in this area. Some are super nice but overly priced and others are cheap but scary inside and out of the room. This hotel is in the middle of the hotel experiences yet I find it is priced reasonably well.

Surprisingly pleasant for the price!

Pros: Clean, reasonably priced.
Location: Very close to all downtown activities, parks, etc.
For the price we were very pleased- I think that the only reason the hotel is so reasonable is it's proximity to the freeway. We typically pay 2x this amount for pretty much any hotel stay but thought, since this was just a one night stay, we'd risk staying here; I'm glad we did! Staff members were pleasant, room was clean. Decent, basic place to stay- and dog-friendly, too! I think we'll be back.

Good enough for business and single adventurers

Pros: Great for what I needed, which was a place to sleep between riding 100 and 80 miles on bike on the RSVP cycling event from Seattle to Vancouver.
Cons: Bicycle access from streets is iffy due to busy streets nearbybut I would guess that would make the location convenient to guests arriving by car
Location: Strip mall type location with typical strip mall shops and restaurants. Just 8 blocks or so from downtown core. Whole Foods and Fred Meyer very close.
Basic accommodations, safe and clean, fine for a single person or a business traveler. Nothing romantic at all about this spot for couples however. Convenient to downtown and close to drugstores/Fred Meyer and a new Whole Foods.

When we arrived, the room smelled so bad, we asked for another room. The second room wasn't much better. There was a wet spot on the floor, which was likely what was causing the odor. Unfortunately, there were no more rooms left. The AC didn't work, so it was muggy as well. We will not stay here again.

close to the college, right off the freeway

Pros: There was a guy who watched over the breakfast items; it was nice that you didn't have to worry about not getting down there by 10am, and missing out.
Cons: No fan in the bathroom.
Location: Close to downtown, lots of food options available.
we were up in Bellingham for a college tour; haven't ever been there before, so went off the Travelocity reviews. It was okay, close to the school, and close to downtown. A tad noisy, as it's right next to the freeway, and our room faced the freeway. Would probably stay there again, as it was a good price.
