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.

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. The people are very friendly. The room was VERY clean and large, with a view. The price was right as well. The bed was pretty...

When our apartment caught on fire we were put up at the Holiday Inn Express Bellingham. The rooms are nice and clean and spacious. It is really nice to have a hot breakfast, and the pool and spa are a great diversion for my son. The staff has been amazing working with our unique needs, as well as our companion...

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...

We arrived at the hotel after a very exhausting day. Sam, the desk manager, was so very helpful. She recommended local eateries and provided great service. Our room was perfect and the breakfast was outstanding. We will definitely stay there again if we are in the Bellingham area.

Hotel was very accommodating, eco friendly, good service, clean, good breakfast. From the check in with Blake, to the food server Dorothy, the housekeepers (all of them very pleasant and cheerful in a genuine way), and check out with Robert - all top notch.

The property is very well maintained. Beautiful, clean and cosy rooms. Excellent price. My husband and I stayed in a non smoking king sized bedroom which was tastefully furnished. Very well located in terms of shopping - Bellis Fair mall is just nearby. Lots of restaurants are in close proximity to the hotel.

The hotel rooms are nicely updated. The hotel is back off the street and easy to miss the first time you try to find it. The staff, everyone from the front desk to the housekeepers, barely acknowledged our presence. A few smiles would go a long way.
