Cleanliness and helpful staff.

Great property, friendly staff, great location, great breakfast.. Highly recommend

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help me! The hotel is older but very comfy and homey.

The restaurant close by is a nice bonus.

Location good. Breakfast was good but not hot. Staff was very good. Lots of cold air came through windows. Had to change rooms to stay warm.

Very nice people and amenities.

The location was easy to find, parking was free, the beds were very comfortable, staff was friendly and professional, check in was quick. There is nothing we didn't like.

The pull up load unload area under the large portico is wonderful. The pool area is clean and pretty. The dining area, while small, is clean and the food at breakfast good and well stocked. The outside sitting area is nice for dining or phone calls and the inside sitting area by the waterfall feature really pleasant. The rooms are clean and the beds and pillows comfortable. When needing room service or extra towels, the service professionals were prompt and kind. This is my go-to hotel when staying in Bellingham.

Convenient location to shopping, dining and getting around the area. From downtown Bellingham to Ferndale

Liked the outdoor patio by the pool, breakfast & helpful staff.

Great breakfast. Pancake machine was super cool and made amazing pancakes. Also liked warm cookies from 6-8. Beds were luxurious. Everything was great but they drained the hot tub so we couldn’t use it.

Loved use of city gym Breakfast was fab Staff were friendly Convenient to everything!!!! Free, safe parking

The hotel is clean and smells fresh. The bed is plush and comfortable with a firm and soft pillow. Overall nothing looks outdated. The pool is cool for health standards and the hot tub is hot and sudsy, both are always clean. Pool towels are always stocked. My wife and I have stayed here four times through the years and have not been disappointed. The hotel staff is friendly with easy check in and check out. Always a positive experience which is why we choose you again and again. Thank you hotel staff for positive efficient consistency!

Clean hotel good staff. However the slowest elevator I have ever seen.

For the price we were let down. There was road noise all night. The walls are so thin we could hear people using their toilets in the room adjacent to ours.

We stayed one night, drawn to the pool and proximity to Bellingham. The hotel is very clean, which was great. Multiple pillows on the bed, very helpful. The pool is a bit cool, so not great for a long stay - too bad! Kids loved the breakfast. The coffee is awful for a Seattlite!

So far, I have stayed at the Bellingham Holiday Inn Express twice. it is the best deal in town. Just 5 minutes from my daughter's house. My daughter shares a room in a house with 4 recent WWU grads. Visits to her require me or our family to board elsewhere. I enjoyed my short stay that was in Lou of a Thanksgiving get together. We hiked an urban trail, had dessert at Mallards Creamery, cooked dinner in her kitchen and enjoyed a meal at Anthony 's. Staff was very accommodating, friendly and even let my daughter join me at the breakfast buffet! Buffet has good variety. I would like to see a non-dairy milk and a richer coffee offered next time, but hospitality staff was very helpful and let me come back for fruit for the road at 10 am although the signs said she quit serving at 9:30 am.
