Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by swedish quality of water.......poorly laid out eating area
We found the water had a strong cedar smell. I mentioned this to staff and they said they had also noticed this odor......seemed flustered and had no explanation. I am wondering where the source of water is for hotel??
I would advise management to consider moving the large, tall table near the food to the other side of dining room. Very hard to get food when table if full and chairs were out.....it could easiy be fixed
Breakfast workers were excellent.

We enjoyed our overnight stay,the room was nicely updated. After staying in the pricey down town Seattle area the cost was a pleasant surprise. We would stay here again if we ever travel through this area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great staff, Great renovation.
Stephanie at the desk always greeted me with a smile, Friday night, Saturday night and after doubling back Sunday morning! Thanks for your care and hospitality!
Appreciate having one Gluten Free brand of yogurt.
Food staff could use more training on food allergens that are in your other breakfast items. Consider food allergin signage?
Room was very clean, coffee was not replaced.
Hotel renovation is great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ReyG Excellent but poor wireless internet
Our iPhones could not connect to the hotel's wireless internet. Front desk staff was helpful but clueless about solving the problem. Never did get access during our whole stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jkl2014 Pleasant stay
The hotel staff was friendly and the room was clean. Breakfast offered something for each of us fruit, cereal, oatmeal, bacon and eggs. The weather was just perfect so we decided to eat just outside of the breakfast area but unfortunately it was also just feet away from the smoking area. Overall, the hotel was pleasant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dr. David Excellent Renovation and great service
Everything was perfect.
All the staff were very friendly.
I had a little trouble getting the TV to find the channels. The receptionist came to our room to assist.
Just before she arrived, I was able to figure out the start up procedure, so she did not have to come in.
Our breakfast was also excellent.
As mentioned, your renovation was excellent too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr.Wil AWESOME STAY!!!!
HANDS DOWN -- The BEST HIE I've ever experienced, and I've been through quite a few in various states! Not only was this facility the most 'MODERN' facility to date that I've experienced, but the staff attentiveness and courtesy display along with overall cleanliness of this facility from the main traffic areas to my in-room bathroom were so immaculately clean and it made for a VERY comforting experience at this hotel!
I wish I visited this facility on business travel quite a few times a year because I would most certainly become a loyal customer to this site. Way-to-go Bellingham HIE -- Awesome facility and your staff ABSOLUTELY ROCKS!!!!

We stayed the weekend for an amazing price and we could have our dog stay with us! Our room was a decent size, with a king size bed, a fridge and a microwave. The breakfast was delicious and there were so many options. I will definitely stay at this hotel again next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dlka Great customer service
We had a big group and the staff was very accommodating. We were juggling work schedules and made adjustments to the reservations numerous times. The staff was always polite and courteous even though we were high maintenance (thought we are good natured.)! Can't thank the staff enough for handling our big wedding crowd!
The mattress was most comfortable. Probably my best sleep in 6 months!! THANKS!!

This was a nice hotel. It lacked great views but made up for it with the pleasant staff and great atmosphere. The room was very nice and was easy to relax after a work day. Will be returning and adding this hotel to my favorites.

This was a clean, comfortable, and modern hotel for our family during a soccer tournament. The pool is a bit smaller than the pictures indicated but served our purposes. It was really convenient to have complimentary breakfast served in the lobby and the food was actually pretty good!

Pretty good hotel for the value. Sometimes a bit pricey for a small place like Bellingham. New renovations look great. Would stay here again.

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.

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 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.
