We have stayed at the Bellingham Holiday Inn Express numeous times in the past few years. The Hotel is always clean and comfortable,the rates always seem kind of pricey for a Holiday Inn Express. This property is built crackerbox thin and as such can be quite noisy with people in the hallways and people with very large children who stomp... More

We live in Vancouver, BC and decided to try flying out of Bellingham airport as it saves several hundred dollars. We booked a room for one night at the Holiday Inn Express in Bellingham and arrived the day before our 6am scheduled departure for Palm Springs. The holtel offered free parking for 2 weeks, free delivery to and pick up... More

We have stayed here many times and they are always more than willing to accomodate travellers needs. One tip I would give to my fellow non-smokers is to ask for a room further from their designated smoking areas. They have a designated smoking area by the front door and if you are in a non-smoking room and have the window... More

The service here was great! They allowed us to check in a few hours early, upon check in, we discovered we were down for a 2 Queen room. Hubby asked if we could possibly have a king and she said there were none available - after a few clicks, she informed him that she'd found a suite we could have... More

The last time we stayed at this hotel it was a relatively pleasant experience so when we were headed off on vacation this year we decided to give this hotel a call & book again. We are from Canada & find it convenient to go down across the border & stay at a hotel in Bellingham before leaving the next... More

I stayed in a Junior Suite and everything was great! The only downside is the outdated TV, Lodgenet sytem (the pay per view/Nintendo 64 (YES N64! HAHA)) and the really bad 80s watercolor artwork. Everything else was great though! This hotel is probably overdue for a renovation however... Desk staff was nice, breakfast was FAR superior to other hotels. BED... More

Quiet Clean Great breakfasts Convenient location Nice part of town to stay in The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent but fairly small seating area. Clerks were courteous and helpful.

This was an okay Holiday Inn, but not much more. The breakfast area is dinky, so be ready to stand to eat breakfast. The pool could be mistaken for the hot tub its so small, so not exactly much fun for kids. Be sure to ask that the pornography is turned off at the desk - they pitch their pornography... More

We were flying out of Bellingham so needed a decent hotel with a park and fly package. You generally cannot go wrong with a Holiday Inn Express. The price was reasonable because it included a week of parking, free breaky, and a shuttle (taxi) to/from the airport. There was a mini fridge and microwave in the room, which comes in... More
