They got us checked in to our rooms very quickly and made an excellent recommendation for dinner that was very close to the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable. Amenities inside the room (couch, desk, dresser,... More

We were very pleased with this hotel. Good service, clean and comfortable, and VERY QUIET. The inclusive breakfast buffet had so many choices we were surprised, and it was all very tasty. Great location just off the freeway and close to Bellis Fair. Highly recommend!

I was in Bellingham and did not expect to stay over night. However, my plans changed and I needed a room for the evening. I dialed up Google to find hotels near my address several were displayed including the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel has easy access from the street. The hotel appears to be relatively new or recently remodeled.... More

Our Park and Stay visit recently was very good. All our requests were looked after even our breakfast items before heading to the airport. Taxi service provided was great with our walkers and luggage.

My wife and I stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Express in Bellingham before flying off on vacation. We were able to leave our vehicle with them for 16 nights. They paid for our taxi to and from the Bellingham airport. The hotel looks like it has been recently updated. Everything was great and we will definitely stay here... More

On our trips between Boulder and Vancouver Island, this is a great place to stay before entering Canada. The rooms are nice, the beds are plush, everything works, and breakfast comes with the room. There is plenty of parking and it is back from the road so it is quiet. It is only about 10 minutes to fine dining on... More

The room was tidy, and contained all the necessary amenities. For some reason, I was given a 'special needs' room, which wouldnt have been an issue but for the doorbell installed for the room.
