We were there for a family reunion, and some of the other family members were staying there, so we thought we would try it. It for sure will be where we stay from now on. The people are very friendly. The room was VERY clean and large, with a view. The price was right as well. The bed was pretty... More

When our apartment caught on fire we were put up at the Holiday Inn Express Bellingham. The rooms are nice and clean and spacious. It is really nice to have a hot breakfast, and the pool and spa are a great diversion for my son. The staff has been amazing working with our unique needs, as well as our companion... More

This hotel is close to highway so it is very easy to get to town or anywhere you want to go. Rooms are clean and updated with microwave and refrigerator (it is inside a cabinet so you don't hear it running) The fan was noisy for me but the window opens enough to get some fresh air. Breakfast is typical... More

We arrived at the hotel after a very exhausting day. Sam, the desk manager, was so very helpful. She recommended local eateries and provided great service. Our room was perfect and the breakfast was outstanding. We will definitely stay there again if we are in the Bellingham area.

Hotel was very accommodating, eco friendly, good service, clean, good breakfast. From the check in with Blake, to the food server Dorothy, the housekeepers (all of them very pleasant and cheerful in a genuine way), and check out with Robert - all top notch.

We stayed for three days at the hotel and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is clean, the staff was courteous, and the breakfast had a good variety of options including fresh fruits and yogurts. We will stay again when we are in the area.

The property is very well maintained. Beautiful, clean and cosy rooms. Excellent price. My husband and I stayed in a non smoking king sized bedroom which was tastefully furnished. Very well located in terms of shopping - Bellis Fair mall is just nearby. Lots of restaurants are in close proximity to the hotel.

The hotel rooms are nicely updated. The hotel is back off the street and easy to miss the first time you try to find it. The staff, everyone from the front desk to the housekeepers, barely acknowledged our presence. A few smiles would go a long way.

Not sure if it was just the room we stayed in (Room #102), but at 4:00am, the very strong smell/aroma of coffee permeated the walls of our room and we were both wide awake. Nothing like laying there smelling coffee when trying to sleep, especially when neither of us can drink coffee. Then someone took a shower ... coulda sworn... More
