"Good place to stay"
A friend very familiar with Bellingham recommended this Holiday Inn. It didn't disappoint me. It was an average room with typical accomodations. Quiet despite its location just off a major street located near Bellis Fair shopping area. Hot tub was very beneficial after long bicycle ride. Staff worked extra hard to get breakfast early for departing riders next morning.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and tidy. Very easy access to I-5 and Town Centre. The only thing lacking was a fan/vent in the bathroom.

"Best Holiday Express experience"
There is a beautifully landscaped patio and the indoor pool is full of natural light. The staff, with one notable exception, was remarkably warm and efficient. Peaceful surroundings in the midst of every convenience. The decor in the rooms was average but common areas made up for that. Notable exception was by a woman desk person who expressed remarkable indiffence to a reservation problem that meant we had to leave the hotel for another. We were staying here for two weeks while we waited for work to be done on our home. The work took longer than expected and we needed another two weeks. We had not extended or reservation and they were booked. All we wanted was to be able to come back and stay here rather than go twenty miles away. She could care less, twice, when we asked it there was a solution. When I decided to ask another front desk person they managed to get us back in after two days for the next twelve days after genuinely express a desire to help. Because we have two pets, we were restricted to pet friendly hotels.

"great prices easy to get to"
We were in town for a baseball tournament. The hotel was a few miles from the park but was easy to get too. Staff was very nice and had a great breakfast. The carpet was a bit stained in our room but other than thtat very happy and would stay there again.

"Comfort issue"
Everything was nice enough except the bed. There is a mattress pad on it that must have plastice in its construction. It reminded me of a hospital bed. Every time you rolled over it crackled because of the plastic in the mattress cover. Also the mattress itself was uncomfortably firm.

"Looks good"
Overall appearance was great, but, why don't they make rooms more soundproof? Loud overhead, loud next door, and bangs with every door closing. The next door shower was louder than when we used ours, and at 4:30 am., that's not good! Not a very peaceful night. On the positive side, it was a clean hotel, nice pool and hot tub, very friendly staff, and great breakfast.

"Too much Money for location!"
Expensive for more than one night stay, the breakfast was really good, the only downside is that very small area to get food for the amount of guest stay at night, it took 10 minutes to get coffee and cinnamon rolls.

This hotel has been remodeled in the lobby. However, the room are still the old motel6/holiday inn style rooms I remember from childhood. The TVs are new, the rooms are clean and in good order....just older body style.

Only complaint is that the doors to all rooms slam shut with a loud bang, making it impossible to sleep later than when the first person on your floor leaves their room the first time in the morning. Some soft close hinges on room doors would be good idea here.

"Reservation FAIL"
I use Hotels.com frequently for work, and when I booked this place I had reserved a single king non smoking. When I showed up for my reservation, all they had left was a smoking room. Still disappointed that they have these rooms even available, the hotel was nice enough, but I was just extremely disappointed that I had to sleep through that.

"Adequate stay, but double charged me"
My family and I stayed at the hotel for four nights. The room was fine, if not a little loud and worn out, and the staff was fine as well. One thing to note is that I paid for the stay through Expedia, but they (the front desk staff) also charged my credit card for the stay in addition to putting two additional holds on the card for incidentals.... and I had to call them to get a (400$ +) refund on the charge (this was not for the holds for incidentals... this was an actual second charge for the stay). In addition, if you are going to Bellingham to explore Fairhaven and the downtown area, I should note that this hotel is far away from these locations (more of a strip mall area).

I thought overall it was satisfying, the service was great, the king size bed was great, the shower was outstanding along with the bathroom size. Only small complaint was the noise of the fan on the heater.But we eventually turned that off. Location of the hotel driveway was hard to find along with the parking. But overall it was a 4+.

We were home for Christmas. The location is great. The front desk staff was really friendly and accommodating. Two things I would change are: better towels - the ones in the bathroom are so thin. And the heater is soooo noisy we couldn't sleep and had to turn it off, but then we got cold.

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express many times, and usually have had no complaints. However, this time I was completely unimpressed with the check-in. The staff was not friendly, and gave the impression you were doing them a favor rather than the other way around, which a check-in should be. Will consider other hotels on our next stop in Bellingham.

Great room and nice to have something large enough for us and our dog but a terribly noisy hotel. The constant slamming of doors which are on springs drove us nuts but the end of the weekend. We could hear the people above us stomping around.

"Great value for price"
We came to Bellingham from Vancouver, BC, just to get out of town for a few days. We picked the hotel based on the photos and price and we were not disappointed. The rooms and building were extremely clean and nice looking. The pool and hot tub were great and are in a lovely setting (not in the basement, like many hotels). The breakfast provided was EXCELLENT. We would definitely stay there again.

We were wowed by this Holiday Inn Express. All new room decor, nice pool, right off the freeway. We were biking from Seattle to Vancouver and they even let us keep our bikes in the room. Since there were a group of us, the staff came in early to lay out breakfast (great breakfast). I'd stay here again in a minute--close to airport, Bellis Fair, etc.
