Clean and comfortable, with decent breakfast

We enjoyed our night's-stay in the Holiday Inn Express Bellingham. The room was clean (especially the bathroom) and had nice decor. The linens were nice on the bed, a bit rough for the towels. The breakfast was your standard hotel continental breakfast, in a nice room in the downstairs lobby of the hotel. It was just what we needed.

Easy

We were exhausted and needed a night stay and found this Property to be lovely. Not a traditional holiday inn at all. Pleasant stay and would stay again.

Good Stay

I was up in Bellingham for a friend's wedding and enjoyed a pleasant and relatively hassle-free stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Only real problem I had was with a wonky toilet in my room. The staff was courteous and helpful with getting the problem solved and even offered to move me to a new room. Only recommendation I might have would be to update the operating systems on the pcs in the lobby. They're a bit outdated. I suppose that if I were actually up there for business though, I would have brought a laptop with me though. Nothing fancy about the included breakfast, but it was easily the best continental breakfast I've ever had a hotel. Usually I can't find enough things that I like to sate my appetite, but I found myself having to skip certain things that I would have like to get just because I already had to much. Really loved the complimentary breakfast!

Comfortable accomodation

Tucked away and a little difficult to find. Close to Mall if that's your pleasure. Far from waterfront, downtown Bleeingham and Fairhaven. Need a car. Hotel was undergoing renovations. Newly tiled bathrooms. Nice linens and comfortable beds. Very clean. Under window AC/heat unit. Thin drape lining which cannot block out light. Breakfast is nothing special. Friendly and helpful desk staff.

Family Reunion

I have stayed in motels and hotels all over the world and this is all anybody needs in a hotel. There was a full free breakfast with bacon and eggs, a nice spa, a heated pool and a very, very complete gym. The gym was next door, but was better than any gym in any hotel that I have ever stayed at. The room had a microwave and refrigerator which is always handy and expected. There was construction in progress, but was during normal work hours so did not bother us at all. I will use Holiday Inn Express again. It was close to a lot of restaurants, a movie theater and mall.

Loud kids hard bed

Group of family's with young kids ear piercingly loud in pool (my 11 year old daughter who is usually being told to quiet down wanted to leave pool) Front desk was manned by what looked like a 14 year old girl who just stood there like a deer in the headlights when we asked if somone would do something g about the kids Screaming and running and jumping into hot tub with no apparent supervision. Also the beds were very hard I wanted to get my camping foam cell and the noise continued into the night kids jumping off beds slamming doors and running in halls and management did nothing

We had a late check-in and that went very well. The night attendant was very informative and helpful. It was easy to find with GPS but I probably would have missed it. The breakfast was very nice. Good variety and food was warm to hot. Staff was very helpful and replenishing foods constantly.We enjoyed the daffodil feilds in Mt. Vernon while we were there and some of the waterfront parks. We were treated to an exclusive steak supper at The Steak House at the Silver Reef Casino. Oh my goodness!!!

Works for me!

Didn't want to drive back to Seattle late, so we spent the night in Bellingham. Holiday Inn was easy to find. My kids enjoyed the pool (although small) and the hot tub. We all enjoyed the breakfast (NOT the usual cold continental spread). Over all we would stay there again. The only issue I had was that on the 2nd floor, one wing was smoking and the smell did float to the non-smoking wing.
