“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Very impressed with this Holiday Inn. Rooms brand new with modern decor and very clean. Comfortable beds. Pool was a little on the small side but kids still had fun. My only complaint is the loud doors. Could hear other guests coming back to their rooms in evening and the doors slamming shut behind them. Could hear them when trying to fall asleep but once asleep didn't get wakened by it. Great stay!

Great hotel! Furniture looks brand new (as the hotel). Beds are very comfortable, no noise, good breakfast. Room was clean. Pool looks also fine (but we didn't use it). Check In was quick and efficiency. Definitely one of the top HIE I stayed.

My wife and I stayed here prior to a flight out of Bellingham Airport. We arrived a bit earlier than planned, and the front desk staff was happy to get us an earlier check in at no charge and no headache. Considering we generally stay at 4* and up properties, we were pleasantly surprised to find that this property looked clean enough to eat off of. Both the room, and the hotel common areas were in immaculate condition. Though we didn't opt for their "Park/stay/fly" package (because we prefer to have the car immediately upon landing), we found a short 10 minute drive from the hotel to the airport. Breakfast was typical for a hotel of this caliber, and gave us a good start to our day. Should we be in the area again, we will definitely consider this property.

Room unit was fairly organized. Fully stocked bath towels, and toiletries. Associated with Bath and Body Works so shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and lotion was a good added bonus to your stay. Breakfast buffet never runs out of food for everyone and the cooks are very nice. One thing that my family and I never appreciated was the unwelcoming approach by the staff members in the front desk. They were passive and seemed to not have work ethics knowledge. Overall, our stay was very fair and met of our needs as loyal customers of the holiday inn express.

Room Tip: we always choose to stay on the highest floor; noise are more controlled.

It's hard to know how to rate a hotel like this. It's not a 4- or 5-star hotel, but it's really good for what it is and exceeded our expectations. The hotel was spotlessly clean, recently refurbished, and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The pillows were better than what we have found in more upscale hotels. This all made for a great night's sleep.

There are a lot of breakfast options provided as well. Although the hotel is located on a busy unappealing street, it was very quiet at night, and we were able to sleep just fine with the window open, a big plus for me because I am not fond of climate control or stuffy air. I would stay here again.

We were in the area for a horse show with our granddaughter. Very nice stay. Breakfast sure was handy and good! Staff was great! The rooms had recently been remodelled! Carpet, bedding, all the room furnishing were new! We appreciated that!

We needed a one-night in Bellingham for family events. Holiday Inn Express was perfect. Excellent location about a block off Meridian, good room layout, very quiet, seemed very new and was perfectly clean. Parking lot was a bit "tight". Will go back.
