Looks like it was fully renovated so the Hotel has a modern feel and is very clean with a nice staff. Maybe a good place to stay if you are on your way to Vancouver. I didn't realize Bellingham was so spread out. It was 15-20 min drive to Fairhaven. Around 10-15 minutes to downtown Bellingham. We were given a... More

Great value and a good breakfast makes for a great stay at a reasonable price. The room was very nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was loaded with choices and they were quick to refill empty items. The only downfall was the pool was the size of a postage stamp but was the perfect spot... More

We stay here quite a bit because it's convenient and we know what we're getting. But this time we were greeted by a newly renovated hotel. It was really nice and the staff was excellent. Kudos to you bellingham! I appreciate the new decor and cleanliness! I would recommend this hotel for people visiting the area!

Room was large and quiet, bed was comfortable, but room smelled like smoke. Arrived late and was leaving early so it was OK for a night but was a bit disappointed. Breakfast, location, staff were all good.

This is a great hotel close to the airport. You can leave your car there and they take you to the airport by taxi. When you return there is a place in the airport to call the hotel and they send a taxi. Nice rooms and free wifi. They even have a free breakfast.

More and more people are traveling by electric car - the hotel chains that are installing EV chargers are bring in more and more guests. Avoid this Holiday Inn Express hotel. It has no chargers. Better to stay at the Bellingham Marriott, where they do. Or the best Western down the road, also with good chargers.

An enjoyable family stay that included a pool and Jacuzzi, plus a hot and tasty breakfast. The rooms were clean and remodeled in a trendy and aesthetic style. The room we stayed in had free wifi so downloading our favorite shows from the web occurred quickly and without interruption. The staff was friendly. The only draw back was the air... More

This is our second time at this very clean hotel and the renovations are wonderful (great sink, long counter, shower head, furniture, décor colors and pictures), however, the beds could have used an upgrade too. The mattresses are so firm (read HARD) that sleeping was agony. No cushioning, and the ones in our room - 2 queen beds - seemed... More

Holiday Inn Express in Bellingham, is a clean, convenient place to stay. Close to down town and easy to travel north on Meridian. A little tricky to turn into the parking lot, as it's hard to see the hotel from the road. I missed it the first time and went around the block once. I loved that they had outside... More
