Great hotel! Furniture looks brand new (as the hotel). Beds are very comfortable, no noise, good breakfast. Room was clean. Pool looks also fine (but we didn't use it). Check In was quick and efficiency. Definitely one of the top HIE I stayed.

My wife and I stayed here prior to a flight out of Bellingham Airport. We arrived a bit earlier than planned, and the front desk staff was happy to get us an earlier check in at no charge and no headache. Considering we generally stay at 4* and up properties, we were pleasantly surprised to find that this property looked... More

Room unit was fairly organized. Fully stocked bath towels, and toiletries. Associated with Bath and Body Works so shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and lotion was a good added bonus to your stay. Breakfast buffet never runs out of food for everyone and the cooks are very nice. One thing that my family and I never appreciated was the unwelcoming approach... More

It's hard to know how to rate a hotel like this. It's not a 4- or 5-star hotel, but it's really good for what it is and exceeded our expectations. The hotel was spotlessly clean, recently refurbished, and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The pillows were better than what we have found in more... More

We were in the area for a horse show with our granddaughter. Very nice stay. Breakfast sure was handy and good! Staff was great! The rooms had recently been remodelled! Carpet, bedding, all the room furnishing were new! We appreciated that!

We needed a one-night in Bellingham for family events. Holiday Inn Express was perfect. Excellent location about a block off Meridian, good room layout, very quiet, seemed very new and was perfectly clean. Parking lot was a bit "tight". Will go back.

Came to Washington State for a Girlfriend Getaway and we spent one night here in a very comfortable, clean, attractive deluxe queen room with two beds, sofa, desk, etc. It was very quiet and pleasant. The breakfast was fine. I think Holiday Inn Express hotels are a very nice midrange price option.

I was in Bellingham for a two day event and decided to stay in town rather than drive up every day. Best decision I made. The room was clean and comfortable. I was able to get plenty of rest and relaxation each night before heading into work. This will definitely be my go-to stay when up North again.

Stayed here for two nights as we came down from Canada to do some shopping. The value for price is not as good, as the Cdn dollar has fallen over the past year compared to the greenback, but still was a pretty standard HI express. Clean, comfortable and a decent breakfast set-up. We would likely stay here again, although it... More

Came to Bellingham to tour WWU. Booked this hotel because I get rewards points. The hotel was breath of fresh air. Check-in was a breeze. The hotel room was extremely clean and very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was a bit cozy but the food choices were perfect. The hotel had an overall "peaceful" feeling. This is a wonderful place... More
