Great food, clean rooms, pleasant staff A review of BEST WESTERN PLUS Lakeway Inn
I live in Bellingham and this is the hotel of choice for my parents when they visit. I have stayed here as well for anniversaries. The rooms are nice and clean. We always seem to get large rooms. The pool and hot tub area is clean and well maintained. Great location for visiting the WWU campus and downtown is just down the hill. Fred Meyers is right next door. Poppe's martini bar is downstairs - excellent - nice place to meet someone for a drink (you can actually hear each other). Sadly, they no longer have a Sunday brunch buffet but that was included in the rooms if you were staying over the weekend.
The staff is always very pleasant to me and my folks. They let me leave flowers or wine pre-check in for my folks and always have them in their room before my parents get there.
The hotel has gone entirely non smoking in both the rooms and the restaurants.
I've attended a lot of meetings at this hotel. The hotel's catered food is excellent and kept well stocked.
