It's a well kept motel that's clean and in a great location for exploring the area. Fairhaven restaurants are an easy bike ride away, as is downtown B-Ham.

Economical and excellent

I needed a couple of days in Bellingham near the highway and WWU and paying my own way didn't want to pay for too fancy. This fit the bill perfectly. Friendly staff and clean, quiet building. Not as close to downtown as others, but for what I needed it was great. Will go back next time.

Excellent value for the thrifty traveler

Eager-to-please owner/operator provides clean and secure environment for his guests. Supervises the property himself. Excellent safe parking behind the building with only one way in/out. Samish Way is the handiest location in town and this is its best value.
