I had a perfectly fine experience, especially for the fairly low price. A one night stay only cost me $50, and I was given a free upgrade to a room with two queen beds. There was no air conditioning, but the room had a large fan and a very cold mini-fridge. The TV was an older big screen TV, so... More

My son and I stayed at this hotel for one night only. It was a weekend night, we didn't have a reservation, and all of the other hotels we checked were booked solid. We must have gotten one of the last hotel rooms in town. The bathroom was very clean, but the sleeping/eating area was definitely not. There was food... More

Like others, I was hesitant to stay because of some of the poor reviews, but the given the proximity to the airport I went for it. Let's see: you can stay at the Hampton Inn next door for $150+ or here for a third of the price! Beyond the excellent price point, in a day of dying Mom and Pop... More

We stayed 1 night on our way to Hawaii. After reading the reviews we weren't sure as to what to expect and were pleasantly surprised.The room (No. 246) was modest and clean, the staff were pleasant and very helpful. Bonus free parking for our stay in Hawaii and shuttle to the airport. Good value for the money. We will stay... More

We stayed here on route to Palm Springs via the Bellingham airport. The motel far exceeded expectations. It was very clean and spacious, with microwave and fridge in our room.
