Affordable, Clean, and Free Breakfast. Definitely worth the price. Room was comfortable and the shower was nice and hot. TV, Fridge, and hot pot in the room as well. Close to downtown Bellingham as well.
When we arrived, it took us a while to find our building. The 100s. We went to the 300, 200 buildings first. Having clear signage would be appreciated which stands out. We climb the stairs and are happy with the door tap electric security system. As with every hotel, I check the beds. Can't be too careful these days. Aside from some stray black hairs it was clean. I get it's hard to get every hair but if a house cleaner is making the bed, don't ignore the hair, please remove it. The bathroom was clean, tidy..the hot water needed to be ran beforehand in order to kick-start it. Took awhile. The only issue in the Washroom was for the shower stall, the place around the spray nozzle, had a hole no plate. It sketched me out with a wide hole in the wall, so I put toilet paper in it. also, the toilet got plugged easily due to extreme low pressure. Had to flush 6 times for a pee. The view from our room was wonderful, and I appreciate the space, fridge too. The bed and pillows were too soft for our liking. But it was clean room non smoking and no noise. We didn't hear the hwy sound or even neighbors. Never made it to the breakfast, as we slept in. Also noteworthy was we booked on Expedia, at $100 a night, and when we checked in, got great news that it was $70 so that was a nice surprise.
Negatives: low water pressure, bed hair, missing shower plate, unclear direction,
Positives: price, view, lack of noise, air conditioner unit, in room coffee, tv and free wifi, free parking, free breakfast.
Ultimately, I'd suggest others try it out.
