Beautiful room, especially loved the bathroom mirror. I am now searching where I can find one for my house! Great pool area, fabulous breakfast. I am never dissatisfied with Holiday Inn Express and this was no exception.

We stayed here in July and were happy with our choice in Bellingham. Welcomed by warm cookies and very friendly staff. The room was comfy and spacious. Wifi worked very well and we were satisfied with the breakfast in the lobby each morning. The hotel is walking distance to the Mall and many eateries close by as we didn't have...

We generally stay at Holiday Inn Express. This Bellingham property was above average in terms of room quality and location. We were towing a boat so we were pleased that we could easily walk to a number of very good restaurants and Macy's. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast choices were typical of the chain. Would definitely plan to...

This is quite a nice hotel. The location is bad because the traffic is very heavy and the area is not pedestrian friendly. The rooms are clean and adequate. There is a nice pool but no exercise room. The breakfast is OK but needs healthier options.

HIEBellingham, General Manager at Holiday Inn Express Bellingham, responded to this review

Dear name8150, Thank you for taking the time to leave our hotel some feedback. While we don't have a gym in the building, our guests have full free access to the City Gym which is right next door to us. We will look into healthier breakfast options for our guests.

This place is very nice which was a bit unexpected. Bed was firm and pillows were fabulous. The cases read either 'Firm' or 'Soft' and you've got 4 pillows on a King bed. There should have been a throw pillow or two for the divan though. Full, complete breakfast was available, with Coffee and Tea available all day. This place...

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.

When our apartment caught on fire we were put up at the Holiday Inn Express Bellingham. The rooms are nice and clean and spacious.

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...
