We spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Express. Our room was nice and clean. When we complained about a guest stomping around all night on the floor above, they moved us to the top floor. The breakfast was fine, as motel breakfasts go. Overall, we were satisfied with our stay and the service provided. We would definitely stay there... More

Nice location, near costco too! We booked online through the Holiday Inn website. Had a room rate of $60. Was a very nice room, especially for that price. The free breakfast was nice. Staff was friendly and gave excellent dinner recomendations (Anthony's and Hearthfire, both were awesome!) I would stay here again for sure.

An honest review - pom55 - Today I really like the comfort and cleanliness of this hotel, the beds are very comfortable and I like their triple sheet system, (the beds are always fresh from top to bottom and pillows are fluffy) the shower is also amazing. The pool and hot tub is always clean and comfortable for swimming or... More

I do not completely understand the positive reviews this place receives. Apparently, all the other hotels in Bellingham must be absolutely horrible. I've stayed at a number of Holiday Inn Express properties and I can honestly say this place does not meet the standards I've come to expect from HI Express, especially given the 4-star price this property charged me....

The contrast to our experience at another facility in Bellingham last year was heartening. I had lost faith in our ability to find a safe and comfortable harbor. I was booked for a day surgery procedure and since we live some distance from the medical center, we wanted to stay the night nearby. I had phoned three other facilities before... More

We stayed for one night in this hotel as we were waiting to board the Alaska Ferry. It allowed pets which was a suprise. The hotel was beautiful, the beds were great, and the rooms very nice and very clean. They offered a breakfast in the morning which was great. We arrived early, before normal check in time and they... More

Just returned from 2 day stay at Holiday Inn Express during Thanksgiving. Room was very spacious and clean. Beds were excellent after 5 1/2 hours of driving. Would rate beds as tops with 4 comfortable pillows per queen bed. Bathroom showed some aging in the gout on the tile but still was cleaned very thoroughly by staff. The one thing... More

Hotel was good except for the wireless internet. It was the pits! In 2 days was never able to log on. Everyone else was having problems either in their rooms or the common areas. Had to go to nearby hotel and tap into their wireless. Totally unacceptable! Will not stay here again till they get this fixed.

It would have been a typical Holiday Inn experience had it not been for the bed. It was a king bed and we kept rolling to the middle! I'm sure they don't have many beds like that one. Otherwise, the hotel was in a good location and looked good from the outside. We didn't try the indoor pool but did... More

Can't say enough great things with this place. We were out for a wedding and found that Bellingham will be in the area that will be closest to the ceremony and reception areas. Loved the linens and beddings and a bonus would be the complimentary breakfast. True, the food isn't the greatest but hey, it's free! Our check in/check out... More
