Bellingham’s Orca Inn, a hotel/apartment hybrid, now open

A boutique hotel/apartment hybrid is now open in the north end of the city.

The Orca Inn is offering 14 loft apartments on the upper level and 16 hotel rooms on the lower level. It’s at 4071 Home Road, near several other hotels on Northwest Ave.

The apartment units are expected to be used in a variety of ways, including for someone building or remodeling a house or construction workers in the area for a big project. The hotel rooms have kitchenettes and other amenities. The inn is “designed for the budget conscious individual,” according to the company’s website, with rooms at $75 to $125 a night.
