Monroe, Washington
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very nice weekend getaway to a lovely hotel on the Bellingham Bay. The waterview rooms are especially nice as they come with balconies overlooking the harbor and the bay. On a beautiful spring day, we enjoyed our in room coffee and paper out on the balcony.

We unexpectedly had to stay in Bellingham after our car broke down. The staff, Erin at front desk, Erin in the Dining room and Mark in the dining room (the Lighthouse Bar & Grill) made our stay excellent! The seafood risotto was spectacular! From the phone call to make the reservation with Erin, to her ordering food from the dining...

Ran away from the kids for a get away adult night! (They're fine...29, 22 ands 18!) Checked in really late, but the gentleman at the front desk could not be more polite and friendly if he tried. The room was beautiful, stocked with plenty of and bathrobes (!) and chocolates on the bedside table. We could leave the screen door...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hotel Bellwether. The hotel was nice, clean and the bed was very comfortable. It's walking distance to some good restaurants/bars. The walk along the waterfront is nice, though we did think it was odd that there wasn't a coffee shop in the complex just outside the hotel.

Room was nice and comfortable. Very friendly staff and we were able to bring our sweet dog. It always is nice when a nicer hotel let's you bring a pet. We travel a lot and don't like to leave her at home.

Very attentive front desk. Excellent view of sunset across the water and marina. Close walk to downtown. Large clean suite with two bathrooms and separate bedroom. One of the best sleeps we have had traveling.

Spent a romantic weekend night here. Rented the Deluxe Suite with the kitchenette. Though the hotel does not have a bell boy or staff to haul my bag to my room and etc. Frankly I don't need that! Parking is inside a secure garage. This is good! Now to the room... It was great! My nephew and his wife spent...
