“Just the right spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Very nice, clean and modern place to stay. We come here every time we want to stay overnight in Bellingham. They have renovated the hotel in the last 3 months so everything was very modern looking and comfortable.

My only complaint is the lumpiness of the pillows, wished the pillows were a bit more firm. I had to use the pillows on the couch. There was no soap dish in the bathroom which was weird, why wouldn't you have a soap dish when you're given a bar of soap to use?

Staff we're extremely friendly and nice. Glad to see friendly faces after a long day.

Breakfast was good, at least hot and fast. Wished the breakfast time would go till later, they were done by 9.30am so we couldn't quite sleep in.

Wifi was fast and efficient, quite a change since the last we were here which was a nice surprise.

I would recommend this place to anyone.

Got in late to this hotel and was impressed right off the bat how quiet, modern and clean it was! No sketchy people hanging out only the normal ones lol. Front desk personnel extremely helpful and had a sense of humor no grouch pots here or stuffy staff! Room awesome, sure looked like 5 stars to me. Beautiful bed, I seriously have no complaints about the room what so ever. This hotel has a full hot breakfast, complimentary with the room... finally found a hotel that has this European standard!

I was working in Bellingham for the week and stayed at this location. The rooms were quite comfortable and the staff was very friendly.
I did not get to use the whirlpool. It seemed to not be operating at the time, but not a real deal breaker.
The full service gym next door was free to use by Hotel guests, which was way better than the normal one small mirrored exercise rooms we normally encounter.
Check in and check out were smooth processes.

I would definitely stay again if assigned to Bellingham again.

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.
