This inn is a nice, inexpensive place to stay for families visiting Bellingham on a budget. There are 81 standard rooms, two one-room suites, and one two-room suite, so families can choose whichever option gives them the most space to breathe and not step on one another’s toes. One unit includes a kitchenette, while the others have refrigerators and coffee makers, so you’ll have a little independence as far as food and beverages go. You do have plenty of other food options though, starting with a free continental breakfast; lunch and dinner are easy thanks to the proximity to restaurants, shops, and cafes. The hotel also features in-room Internet access.

I took a quick trip to Bellingham to visit Some friends this past weekend at the last minute and I needed a place to stay. The GuestHouse Inn had affordable rooms available at the last minute and was very accommodating of my late arrival. The Inn is quite simple and lacks many of the bells and whistles of larger hotels, but the Inn had everything that really matters: a friendly staff, fast WiFi, comfortable beds, and clean rooms. I was in a hurry and did not get to sample the breakfast, but it smelled great. Would solidly recommend.
The room was what we paid for - a crash pad for the night. Nothing more, nothing less. The room was clean and ready when we arrived. Check in was speedy and the people behind the counter were kind. Now for the buts...
The bed was a king size, and HARD - omg, I’ve had camping trips more comfortable. But, at least I didn’t roll into my husband in the middle of the night! The bathroom was only the toilet and a small (I wish I could underline) shower. There’s only enough room for about three tiles on the floor, it’s that small. The sink is out in the room itself. I hope you’re not planning on trying to get into this bathroom and shut the door or you are claustrophobic at all, because this might pose a problem. Had trouble finding outlets for our phones to charge that night, so used the ones by the sink. The next morning my husband tripped over a randomly placed electrical cord that was apparently for this purpose. It’s all functional, don’t get me wrong, just interesting. I’ve stayed in worse.
They did offer a ‘continental’ breakfast that we did not check out
