Families will like the one-bedroom queen suite with a living room with a sofa bed, full kitchen, and dining area, and the queen guestroom with two sleeper sofas.

What was once, prob in the 60s a basic motel is now a chic, modern and clean property that welcomes and embraces you in the Pacific Northwest ethos. The rooms are simple and spacious with plenty of room to stretch. The linens are fresh, the beds are comfortable and the pillows fluffy. There are reading lights by the nightstands and USB ports for devices. The internet is fast. The bathroom is simple and modern with the soap and shampoo in dispensers, yay for less plastic! There's an empty growler in the fridge ready for your next brewery tour. The shared space by the fireplace is warm and welcoming and also is where you will find the coffee and fixins. The green space is well maintained and beautiful. Awesome staff, thanks for the assist Jess. Coffee on tap at reception all the time. My wish list: coffee in the room, less noise from next room (they were having a rocking Friday night), maybe another sitting chair, longer shower curtains and for sure top-down, bottom-up blinds.
Nice, clean, affordable and situated in a cute neighborhood in Bellingham. Comfortable beds and great color scheme. Coffee only in the morning - no breakfast but you get the basics delivered for a very good price.
