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.

This newly renovated hotel was a wonderful Oasis tucked just off Meridian Street.

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday stayer Comfortable Stay
This property is being renovated but is still comfy. I think we were the first people to stay in our room. Gorgeous!
I do wish that Holiday Inn would stop using Styrofoam cups and plates, especially the room cups that are wrapped in plastic. Like most other hotels, they have a card in the room asking you to help conserve by not having laundry done every day. Wish they would show sincere concern and get rid of the Styrofoam.
That said, this property was relaxing; everything else was great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bunnykin Good little getaway for one night!
The overall experience was quite good. The room was nice and large and clean and newly renovated. The pool and jacuzzi were great, however the hotel is providing large balls for kids to play with in the pool. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express to use the hot tub, as I have some lower back issues. The hot tub was great, however we were unable to relax and enjoy. We attempted to use the pool/jacuzzi on two separate occasions, but there were screaming kids throwing balls into the hot tub which we had to deflect in self defence. I agree that parents should take ownership of their children and be more respectful of other guests, however the hotel is fostering the loss of business from adult guest, who's kid's have grown up and left the nest. Perhaps a little monitoring of noise levels and aggressive behaviour would be in order. On a last note we foolishly left the cord and charger for my I-Pad mini in Room 211 on the 22nd of February. So far no one has turned in the cord to the lost and found, but the front desk says they are unable to check the room as there is a do not disturb sign on the room? ? ?

Everything was good except my Priority club number did not show in the local hotel's system even though I was signed in when I made the reservation. Was not recognized as a member and worried I won't get my points for a 4 night stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WWU Alum & Parent New Post-Remodel Decor
We've stayed at this location several times, but on this occasion, we happened to arrive just in time to be the first to stay in a recently remodeled room. The new furniture and carpeting definitely made the room, as well as the public areas, more attractive and comfortable.
The downside of the remodel experience was that the pool and spa area were closed during our stay. Since a swim and a hot soak are aspects we look forward to when we come here, this was a bit of a disappointment...as was the lack of either prior notice of the facility closure or any offer of discount or future comp for the lack of these amenities.
Still, we will be back next time to enjoy both the new decor and the remodeled pool and spa!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Still Tired Why didn't they tell Us?
We look first for Holiday Inn Express, when we travel.
For this stay, We called the front desk to make our reservation, and called again to move the stay a few days back. Neither employee said anything about construction, much less that it would start at 8:00 AM on a holiday. We don't plan on returning. We can't trust this property to give even reasonable service.

The only reason I am giving this just an average rating is that they are remodeling and I was in one of the newly remodeled rooms and the fumes were still in there and gave me a headache. The actual remodeled room was excellent. Very nice.

Located in the heart of shopping; the morning breakfast buffet was great with the exception of the egg omlets which were rubbery and filled with a less than desirable filling. Morning newspaper delivered to each room. Newly remodled rooms.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by heather53 Dogs in rooms and around eatig area
On the Saturday there was a dog barking all night, I suggested to the girl at the front desk to maybe put all dogs in one section of the hotel, so they don't disturb the other guests. Also on the Sat while having breakfast a guest brought there dog in the eating area and let it up on the counters and wonder through sniffing the food. There was several staff that I think saw this and should of asked her to leave the dog in the room. Maybe put up a sign in the eating area. Pillows were not very comfy, other then that, nice staff and enjoyed my stay. Will stay again and recommend to my friends and family.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NikkiC Lack of sleep taints my rating
If you don't mind an ultra-firm mattress, this might suit your needs better than it did mine. For me, the mattress felt like a rock so I slept terribly. The rooms are clean, but there's very little open space. In fact, the roll-away bed we needed wouldn't fit anywhere- we ended up squeezing the mattress between the bed and the wall on the floor because the fram wouldn't fully fit.
Other than those two negatives, the place was very clean and the breakfast was great. Well-priced.
