I have stayed at this Holiday Inn several times. This is my place to stay of choice when traveling from the Bellingham Airport. Very good stay and fly option that gets you to the airport and you get to leave your car for a very reasonable price. You get a breakfast thrown in as well. This is a nice place... More

We were flying from Bellingham airport early in the morning and we chose the Holiday Inn Express for the deal on parking and the shuttle to the airport. We were very happy with our overnight experience (early November, 2011). Our room was large, with a kitchenette (which we didn't use) and a sofa (which we did) and all for a... More

As for the hotel itself.. It's decent. The pool is nice, the rooms are clean, its in a central location, but the downfall is that we had a non smoking room and the hallways and room still smelled like strong lingering smoke. We paid for the park and fly option, and we will NEVER use this option here again. We... More

We spent one night in a double queen room as part of the park, stay and fly package. We didn't spend a lot of time here and didn't use the pool but everything was very clean. The kids were very excited that there was a bag of microwave popcorn in the room and started on it immediately. Small thing, but... More

When you pull up to the hotel and walk in the front door you may be blinded by the fact that the lobby has been updated. That is were it ends. The pool is small and had a lot of dirt floating in the bottom and is right beside the breakfast area with glass doors. The elevator is old, slow... More

I'm surprised at the high prices for hotels in general in Bellingham. We stayed here for the Bellingham marathon. We'd stay again if we could get a PointsBreak. Otherwise, for about the same price, the BW Lakeway Inn is gorgeous and central to everything. PROS: * Extremely clean. If it hadn't been so clean, I would've given it a 2... More

We have stopped here a few times on the way to or from Vancouver to Seattle. It is a fair value for what it offers, but definitely could do with an "upgrade." The breakfast area is the worst - open to the lobby, rather uninviting, and chilly as people are constantly walking back and forth opening doors to the outside.... More

This hotel was just OK. I could smell cigarette smoke although I was on a non-smoking floor. The staff was friendly. The most outstanding part of staying at this hotel was access to the health club next door. The complimentary breakfast is as expected but the area set aside for eating is quite small and becomes crowded.

Stayed overnight with the park stay and fly package. Hotel was remarkably clean from reception area, hallways and room. Bathroom was exceptionally clean with good quality towels and vanities. Complimentary full breakfast buffet was wonderful with a good variety of muffins, bread, eggs (scrambled and hardboiled), sausages, bacons, pancakes, cereal, yogurt, fruit, juice, milk, coffee... you name it. Felt like... More
