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

As a reward for years of being loyal to this chain and after a specific request for a top floor and quiet area, we were put in a room by the elevator and over the lobby. Every time the automatic sliding door opened or closed it woke me up. Now I also have the pleasure of hearing each and every... More

My wife and I have a son living in Bellingham, WA so we frequently visit he and his family. Over the years, we've stayed at this place the majority of the time because of the amenities and the excellent breakfast they serve. We've noticed that many Canadian visitors also stay here when they come down to shop.

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

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
