Booked an impromptu weekend trip to explore this part of the state/ Mt. Baker and chose Bellingham as our base. We were looking for a "breakfast included" hotel price range and Holiday Inn Express was a decent rate and also looked a bit nicer than some of the other offerings in the same price range. Staff was friendly, parking was... More

Have stayed here a number of times and have yet to be disappointed. Especially since the renovations, rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff have always been great, friendly and helpful! We enjoy the pool and hot tub, as well as the wonderful patio! Breakfast in the morning is always plentiful and delicious. The only complaint is the slamming of... More

I booked this hotel through Hotwire for a good rate, below published prices on their website. Arrived late the night before my flight to Las Vegas. Front desk was friendly, and able to change my room from a king bed, to two doubles. Room was clean, and looked like it had been recently updated. Bathroom was large and clean. We... More

We have stayed here at the HIE a few times a year, for many years now. Their most recent upgrades/renovations are great ! The décor in the rooms, new flat screen TV's, large vanity mirrors in bathrooms, and especially the pool & hot tub make this a delight to stay . If you need a place to stay in Bellingham,... More

I am very picky about beds in hotels, and I am surprised at how comfortable the beds and pillows were here. The rooms are clean and large enough for our family of 4. The free breakfast was more than what they need to offer for free--a surprising selection of not just carbo-bomb food but a lot of protein choices as... More
