It's hard to know how to rate a hotel like this. It's not a 4- or 5-star hotel, but it's really good for what it is and exceeded our expectations. The hotel was spotlessly clean, recently refurbished, and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The pillows were better than what we have found in more...

We were in the area for a horse show with our granddaughter. Very nice stay. Breakfast sure was handy and good! Staff was great! The rooms had recently been remodelled! Carpet, bedding, all the room furnishing were new! We appreciated that!

We needed a one-night in Bellingham for family events. Holiday Inn Express was perfect. Excellent location about a block off Meridian, good room layout, very quiet, seemed very new and was perfectly clean. Parking lot was a bit "tight". Will go back.

Came to Washington State for a Girlfriend Getaway and we spent one night here in a very comfortable, clean, attractive deluxe queen room with two beds, sofa, desk, etc. It was very quiet and pleasant. The breakfast was fine. I think Holiday Inn Express hotels are a very nice midrange price option.

I was in Bellingham for a two day event and decided to stay in town rather than drive up every day. Best decision I made. The room was clean and comfortable. I was able to get plenty of rest and relaxation each night before heading into work. This will definitely be my go-to stay when up North again.

Stayed here for two nights as we came down from Canada to do some shopping. The value for price is not as good, as the Cdn dollar has fallen over the past year compared to the greenback, but still was a pretty standard HI express. Clean, comfortable and a decent breakfast set-up. We would likely stay here again, although it...

Came to Bellingham to tour WWU. Booked this hotel because I get rewards points. The hotel was breath of fresh air. Check-in was a breeze. The hotel room was extremely clean and very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was a bit cozy but the food choices were perfect. The hotel had an overall "peaceful" feeling. This is a wonderful place...

Came here after leaving another hotel local to the area (the other hotel was like something out of a horror movie). After such a bad experience at the previous hotel, getting to stay somewhere like this really lifted my spirits. Unlike the previous hotel, this room had been cleaned...thoroughly. Sheets were crisp and white, the room even smelled amazing. Ample...

I switched to this hotel after my horrible Rodeway Inn experience. The staff is super friendly, the room was spotless and smelled fresh, comfortable bed and plenty of pillows, quiet, great shower, and convenient location. The breakfast isn't fancy, but it was convenient and did the trick (much better than a fast food option, too). Plenty of food options for...
