Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 192 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Close to a lot of amenities The hotel GSA was very accommodating to our requests even on arrival and the room was average with pool and internet for those who need it. Breakfast was mediocre but the staff in the BBar wasn't very welcoming (they didn't seem happy to be there) HSKP was great there was nothing in our room that I could complain about in the HSKP dept. All around I would stay again as it was close to Bellingham, Burlington and Tulalip so all arounf a great location this was our 3rd time at this location. July 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very nice oasis. A very clean, convenient, location. A nice quiet night's sleep. Very courteous staff, and wonderful amenities. July 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy access, comfortable and clean Although it appears very close to the highway and the surroundings are not very promising at first glance, it was a great facility, clean, accommodating, good value for price. Although the room was non-smoking, there was a stench of smoke, that was the main draw-back. We had a very relaxing night and would recommend it. July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay Fabulous stay. Our third time at this hotel. Fast check-in. Quiet, comfortable room. Great lighting in bathroom. Convenient makeup/mirror area in room. Very clean pool and pool area. Great shopping and restaurants near by. July 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean room and great service An excellent choice to stay considering all things available nearby to see and do. Tourist attractions in the vicinity within a 35 mile radius, and easy access to interstate and local roads. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kudos to the manager for keeping his word During a prior stay my young daughter had an unfortunate minor incident near the pool area. The staff was very professional in handling the situation and the manager advised us to contact him personally if we return to town again. I travel extensively and have stayed at numerous Holiday Inn Expresses around the US. During a recent return trip I called and was very pleased that the manager remembered the situation and kept his word and truly took very good care of us. A promise followed up by a good deed always pays off in the long run. Kudos to the Burlington Holiday Inn. Keep up the professional job and we will always return. July 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice Everything was as expected. Easy-to-find location right off the freeway. June 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice rooms the staff was very attentive and friendly. one staff member stands out. her name is ceecee. very friendly and upbeat. June 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything we needed! I had a one night stay for a charity cycling event. The hot tub was perfect after a long day of cycling. The washer/dryer perfect for drying my very wet cycling clothes for the next day. Room was large, clean comfortable with microwave. Breakfast was perfect in the morning before the next day of cycling. Huge variety of healthy options. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. And the cookies in the evening were a nice touch! Highly recommend! June 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Staff From the moment my friend and I walked in the doors, the staff were exceptional! So friendly and accommodating. You can see that the property is older and could probably use some updates but overall it was very clean. For the age of the hotel and type of breakfast offered, I think the price for the King Room was a little high, plus I had to add the exchange rate on. Coffee pot in the room didn't work and the air conditioner was extremely noisy. Woke me up every time it cut in. Best part of this were the staff..great crew June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stayed in many HIX rooms; this was the nicest As a Gold Member whose work has occasionally had him in lodgings for over half the time, I've seen Holiday Inn Express rooms all over the US...and this was the nicest one ever. Although the usual king room reservation was made, the assigned room was a suite. In addition to the accustomed fridge and microwave, there was a wet-bar sink...and a gas fireplace. The separate bedroom was in the corner of the building and with the sitting room portion of the suite between it and the adjoining room, it was very private. I should also mention that CeCe at the front desk was extremely helpful. Well done, HIX Burlington! June 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good motel The hotel desk person was very friendly and helpful and immediately created a very welcoming introduction. All other features were great. June 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location! Great breakfast to start the day! Perfect location to explore the San Juans and Cascades or get on I-5 for a short trip to Canada or south to Boeing, Seattle or wherever. The breakfast was fantastic every morning--scrambled eggs, cheese omelets, bacon, sausage rotated every day. Plus the yummy cinnamon rolls were always there--lots of variety to start the day. The person working in there kept the food filled and tables cleaned. Our room was very comfortable and cleaned well. Good internet. My kids were disappointed with the pool, but, otherwise, everything was wonderful. Would definitely stay there sgain. June 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice room The room is very nice and clean. The food is adequate. June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Staff Everyone on staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They were real too...not just that put on friendly that you know has been coached and they have to do to keep their jobs...these people acted like you really mattered and that you were staying in their home! Very clean and easy to get to. The surrounding area isn't much to speak of, but the hotel itself is great. June 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful staff, good location A generally good business stay in Burlington. Friendly and helpful desk staff, nice room, relatively quiet, good location. June 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great overnight stay when travelling on I-5. The only drawback to this hotel is the lack of nearby restaurants - the only one within walking distance is McDonalds. June 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Experience Planning on staying here again due to the excellent customer service, the friendly staff, the comfort of the rooms and a fantastic breakfast. June 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by well kept property I really would recommend this location to anyone visiting Skagit Valley. My only two criticisms were: (1) insufficient electrical outlets in the room. I had to unplug the TV in order to plug in my laptop at the desk. (2) I am not at all a fan of having "call enters" making reservations and giving driving directions. I called the (360) phone for this hotel and was disappointed to get transferred to a call center. I had some questions that only someone at this Burlington Hotel would know. June 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service I have been back to this facility for the last three years. I am very please every time when I stay at this facility. The entire staffs were very pleasant and helpful. May 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service. I would most defnitely recommed the Burlington,WA Holiday Inn Express to all and have to those I know who were traveling in their direction. I have been doing work in the Burlington,WA area sense the late 70's and when I could I would choose the Holiday Inn Express. May 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by If you need a 2 room suite..... ,,,,this Hotel fits the bill. It does need to have the rooms updated/freshened up. Cleaning could be more thorough but it was an overall comfortable room. Staff was very friendly. It is not a very large bedroom, but works. The bed is not the most comfortable and the couch is not fit to sleep on - which is unfortunate if you need the sleeping arrangements. It has a nice patio just out the living room door which was nice. You can access the pool that way from your room if you like. The breakfast was enjoyable in the morning (don't eat the eggs) with a decent variety and the make your pancakes was nice. Unfortunately the internet never did work for us. I would stay here again if in the Area because of the convenience. May 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasure to stay here The reception we received from Ceecee was what I would have expected from the owner of the property. She was great at communication and making us feel welcome. We found all the staff helpful. The fact that there were light choices for breakfast made us feel appreciated as customers. We will definitely go out of our way to stay here again. May 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Comfy & affordable We have stayed at this location several times. ALL WAYS clean and fresh smelling, staff very pleasant with knowledge of the area. Rooms are allways clean and the beds are so comfortable you dont want to get out of them in the morning.Great for family's, with the pool area and they have kid stuff for breakfast. Great food at breakfast and is allways replaced with fresh when the dish is empty. I cant say enough about this place other than you have to stay here or at one of there other locations. ps they have great cookies at the end of the day when you return to your room to relax. May 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean room and great service I was treated wonderfully. Very nice staff,clean clean room everything was perfect. I loved the food and I will stay again May 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff, great room I needed a room and was so glad I landed here. The staff person at the counter was quick, efficient, pleasant, and she gave me a great deal on a room that exceeded my expectations. I wish every hotel stay was as pleasant as this one. May 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Choice It is clean, comfortable, and has a great breakfast. Close to many restaurants, and great on/off freeway access. I will stay here again for sure. May 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2nd Stay We had been traveling all day to appointments in Seattle and in the rain. To tired to go that extra step home. We saw the Burlington HI Express and thought we would see if they had availability, they did. The lady at the counter remembered us from our first stay and was very welcoming and helpful. Found us a room right away in a great location and good rate. Check in/out was easy and effortless. The pool was still open and the cookies were almost ready so my son was very happy. Our second visit was so wonderful that we have decided to stay at Holiday Inn Express when we travel from Bellingham, WA to St George, Utah for our relocation. We already have 2 of those nights booked and very much looking forward to our stay. Can't wait. May 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love Holiday Inn Express I love the Burlington Holiday Inn Express. The people working the night shift are really good people. Everyone was helpful and the pool was still open and we had the pool to ourselves for an hour. It was great. Could be a little warmer in the pool. Maybe it was colder because it was almost closing time for the pool area. Would be nice if there was a change machine for laundry. Overall stay was very nice and relaxing. May 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cooperative staff Gave us directions for dinner and the ferry. Hotel was convenient and accessible. May 5, 2014
