Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spawoman Pleasant, Quiet Stay
I stayed at this hotel due to its proximity to Whatcom Community College, where I was participating in a conference. I initially did not see the hotel, as it is not directly on Meridien, but found it without much of a problem.
There were many young kids staying at the hotel, which made me nervous because I've had bad experiences at other hotels in the past when this was the case. However, I had no problem with noise and slept very well.
I had a bit of a challenge getting the room temperature right at night, but this isn't unusual for me.
The cinnamon rolls at breakfast were really tasty, too! :)

I am a runner...local staff had really no knowledge where to run outside locally...I just figured it out by myself. Hotel parking was kind of funky...not sure if the parking was for the hotel or adjacent business center. Overall nice hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CJH31 Very nice, clean, well maintained
Stayed two nights - it was all good. I especially enjoyed the symbiotic relationship with the Gym next door. Being a hotel guest we enjoyed use of a well equipped gym.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sidsupu Comfortable Room and courteous front desk
We stayed only for one night and the friendliness of the front desk staff was brilliant.
Except for an unpleasant breakfast experience, overall stay was very good.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RTCC Not happy
For the third time I booked this hotel because of an annual event. However this time it was a big disappointment that we arrived when my reserved room was given to someone else. Someone who apparently did not make a reservation because reception did not check I.D., creditcard or Drivers License (she said it was too busy, too many people were there). So a stranger got the room that I had booked two months earlier. I was given another room. Not a kingsize bed as I preferred but two queen size beds. Yes they apologized and offered a free movie. As if that will make up for the total inconvenience and lack of consideration. It is obvious that I do not go back to Holiday Inn Bellingham.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traveling_Monkey Excellent Staff and Incredible Bed!!
The staff here were exceptional!
The bed was a dream.
The parking lot was a fantastic place to leave our vehicle for 2 weeks unattended (no damage, no one entered the vehicle despite it being unlocked (on purpose)).
The shuttle service was extremely pleasant and reliable.
I will be staying again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a pleased guest Real nice place to stay
I had never stayed at this hotel before, so did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. Real nice facility. Enjoyed our stay. Also convenient to have our own personal stop light to get onto the busy road past the front of the hotel.

We always stay at this Holiday Inn Express when coming down from Vancouver BC for "mini holidays" which is about every three months. Always enjoy ourselves, very friendly staff, room very spacious and clean and all that shopping at our door step!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skibum17 Great stay!
Everything about our stay here was great, from the front desk service; clean, contemporary room; comfortable beds and good breakfast to the nice outdoor patio area and free newspapers. My only complaints would be that we could hear the people in the room above us walking across the floor early in the morning and that the sun shone through the crack at the bottom of the drapes and was really bright.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zmwilli Recommend the Park-n-Fly
This was our 1st time flying out of Bellingham instead of SeaTac. I would highly recommend it. The hotel overnight stay, taxi to and from the airport, and ability to leave our car in the hotel's parking lot was included in the one night stay price and was an excellent value.

Great location, wonderful staff. Forgot my shaver and the front desk provided a complimentary one right away. Located across from Costco too which was a bonus as one in our party needed runners and our favorite restaurant "Olive Garden" just a block away ... awesome - thanks so much!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cheesemonger2 The Re-Model Really Improved This Property
Our 3rd or 4th stay at this property and the re-model really improved everything except the choice of breakfast items available... this is not the choice of the property - but HIE REALLY needs to do something to give us some fresh choices... In April, when I brought this up, HIE responded that I would be "surprised" at the new breakfast choices on my next stay... nope... but I digress.
Regarding the Meridian property - the staff is fabulous; goes the extra mile to make the stay enjoyable - there 13 days and everything was superior.
I'm sure I'll be back in Bellingham... and I will definitely stay there again... and... again...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RugbyChickie Nice hotel, curtains were too short!
This is a really nice hotel in a good location, lots of shopping, food and easy access to the freeway. The staff was great, it was all brand new and clean. The only complaint I had was that the curtains were not long enough to hit the bottom of the window, so the room got very bright, very early and it was pretty hard to sleep. Other than that, it was awesome!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teshss Awesome Renovation...
I haven't been to this hotel for a few years, and was overly impressed, and pleased with a huge renovation...everything is new, and done excellently. But they still have the same awesome staff, that remembers their Customers and treat them as Special Family Members.
This is a great place to stay...they now have an amazing new pancake machine that I am dying to try on my next visit.
Nothing could be improved...Well done.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dunc56 Poor front desk service
We stay with Holiday Inn's every chance we can when travelling for holidays or work. The young lady did very little to accommodate us without having to prompt her. She did not ask if we were IHF card members and was reluctant to look up my account number. When I found the Gold Card my wife had to ask if we could upgrade. Again reluctantly she did. Poor front desk service.

Once again we had a great stay at the Bellingham Holiday Inn Express. Robert and the staff were able accommodate us when we showed up without reservations, and set up a room for 4 nights. The new renovations are very nice, and the breakfast as good as always!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Teacher Man Renovation!!!
Beware! This is normally a very nice hotel. They are, however, going through some major renovations that they do not tell you about on any websites when you are booking your room. The carpet layers were just outside my door but also blocking the elevators. I had to use the stairs, which really wasn't an inconvenience, but the noise of the crew and the smell of the carpet adhesive sure were. This was on a Sunday evening and they worked until 9:00 PM. It was hard to relax with all the noise and odor. Adding to the trouble were the herd of buffalo booked in the room above me. I know this was not the fault of the staff, but when I mentioned that I'd like to be on the 3rd floor for this very reason they said "Sorry, this is the the room you've been pre-selected to have." The amenities in the room were very nice. I especially like the shower, which was clearly made for taller guests. And the breakfast was delicious. If you don't mind odor and noise, this is a great place to stay. In other words, check with the staff to see if the renovation is finished before booking your room.

If you're planning to stay here, check if they're still doing construction bc it was dusty and loudWithout any discount. Too expensive to be that disturbed. The staff was super nice, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mills65 Excellent Service
We enjoyed our stay in the Holiday Inn in Bellingham. We found the staff to be friendly, helpful and professional. We had a room that had been renovated - it was comfortable especially the king size bed. We left our truck at the hotel for ten days while we went on holiday - the car park was at the back of the hotel and very well lit so we felt confident that nothing would happen to it - nothing did. We would certainly stay at the Holiday Inn in the future
