If you want a good nights sleep, don't stay here. We were on the ground floor, so perhaps the top floors would be better. We could hear everything from the room above us. Anytime someone was using the shower, toilet, etc in any room nearby the pipes were very noisy. Rooms need to be updated, but were clean.

Have stayed here before with no problems. This time, stayed on first floor and heard every flush, shower from room above. Not sure if it was children or elephants above us, but it sounded like someone was having fun jumping around. Otherwise, stay normal Holiday Inn express quality- you get exactly what you expect, nothing more or less. Front desk staff at this location quite friendly.

The hotel is old, smells like bug spray and cheap cologne, and is in a crappy area full of homeless people. You may have trouble sleeping in this hotel, as the doors are loud and the guests seem to love slamming them. The breakfast had limited options, and the available options were stale and didn't taste right. I cut short my stay, and went to a different hotel.

We too had to spend time in Bellingham under stressful circumstances and had to go back and forth to the hospital.
From the time we arrived to the end of our lengthy stay, we got nothing but exceptional service from and outstanding staff. And it was consistent from the great front desk people, to the housekeeping and the breakfast buffet. Always smiling happy people and all working very hard to make our accommodations comfortable under this stressful time.
We had to come back just a week and a half later for another hopspital visit, and because we didn't know how long we were going to have to stay, we had to extend our stay several times. No problem and even when we had to change rooms, they went out of their way to help me move and always eager to help.
The staff at this Holiday Inn is the BEST, and we have travelled a lot being 23 years in the military and travelling all over the world.
I would highly recommend this Holiday Inn, and would recommend this to anyone considering it! Also located next to one of the best shopping malls ever! Bellas Fair!

We arrived at midnight and yet the front desk agent was still smiling welcoming us. The room is clean, very spacious and all the staff we encountered were so friendly. The breakfast was more than we expected.. lots of choices. The locations is excellent too. you can walk in 10 minutes to Bellas Fair.

We will definitely come back here and will recommend it to our family and friends.
Good Job.

We had no complaints, clean room, clean pool, and the usual Breakfast. Location is great and the washroom floor in our room was recently re-tiled.The rest of the washroom was a bit tired, no low flow toilets and older faucets. Extremes Sports Bar across the parking lot has excelent food and will deliver. Staff were friendly.

We were there in Bellingham under stressful conditions and at the hospital a lot. The staff was very understanding and helpful to our needs! The front desk lady was so sweet and had much compassion for us during this time! We stayed there several times this summer and will go back again for sure! I hope to see her again and let her know things are great now!:)
