Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by travel4food less than expected
This time, we picked this location instead of downtown Bellingham to avoid the crowd, and since Holiday Inn Express has been consistence for us in other cities. BUT this one is a bit cram, older, creaky elevator, small kiddy wading pool. We did not have the same comfortable stay/relax as other Holiday Inn, like one in Portland/OR, and a discount rate of $87/night for a double bed is a bit stiff for not being downtown. Friendly front desk but cleaning staff was a bit grumpy. We stayed one night, so didn’t get to experience the variety of breakfast, but our kid love the pancake machine, the bacon & the sausage, who doesn’t. The only healthy option is oatmeal packages, a bowl of apples/oranges/banana, and cold bagels, though the wife likes the corn flakes, not as sweet. The eve cookies went fast. There were a few families staying. We admit, it’s close to a few shops and restaurants but the traffic on Meridian is a mess. We walked to Costco and it was faster. We ended up driving downtown for meals. The drivers here are not that friendly, they wouldn’t let you merge in while you’ve waited a while. One good perk to this hotel is CityGym access with your room key, which is right next door, with all the weights & machines available to you till 11pm. An average experience, don’t think we’ll return just for the gym. 2 stars

We missed the turn to this property as we were expecting it to be located "smack dab" on Meridian... It is far enough off this busy street to have quiet rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bnsixstrings Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Bellingham
This is a place in the heart of the commercial area of Bellingham. It is walking distance to all amenities and shopping. Despite its urban location, the hotel is located up a driveway about a 100m metres away from the busy Meridian Street and far enough to keep street sounds to a minimum. There is ample parking available. One of the hotel's features is a comfortable sit-out where one can enjoy an outdoor breakfast, in a garden setting. The hotel is embarking on program of renovations beginning fall 2013. One can only hope that after this is completed, the rates will still remain the same.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mhaag60 Nice Hotel and Good Value
The staff greeted us with a smile. The hotel was clean and well kept. Even staying on the bottom floor we had no issue with noise. The bed was comfortable and the location was close to our golf courses. The gym membership was a nice bonus.
Very pleasant stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oilan Very Fair.
My wife and I stayed in the Holiday Inn Express Bellingham last week for a couple of nights and were most pleased with our choice.
Booking over the phone was a pleasure and took no more than a couple of minutes ......From the moment we entered the hotel until our departure the staff were most pleasant, the room 326 was large and clean, including the bathroom. !!!
In the morning we had a very nice breakfast.
My wife and I travel round the world quite a bit and stay in over expensive hotels, and there is usually one complaint or other, but
Bellingham suited our requirements for our a two night stay., and
we were most satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JackieDis62 Great experience, great breakfast
Thank you Holiday Inn Express for the level of comfort, convenience and a wonderful breakfast. We loved the microwave, coffee pot and fridge which gave us the option of eating out or ordering in.
Great location, close to airport and has a parking feature and free taxi to and from airport.
Would stay again and again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Star2000 Stay, Park and Fly
We usually fly out of Bellingham for our vacations and love to stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The stay, park and fly is usually a pretty good deal, rather than parking our vehicle at the airport. They shuttle us to the airport and pick us up upon our return via taxi.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LSB2013 Mediocre and dirty
Very mediocre decor, old, stuffy. In addition, a large clump of hair was not a welcome gift on the bathroom floor. The room was not quiet, and stains were found on both bed sheets. The sheets smelled clean, but still had stains. Unfortunately the only five star features of this property was the lobby and location to the airport.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mum007 Wonderful Staff
We were recently at the Holiday Inn Express in Bellingham for our daughters wedding. Since neither the Bride or Groom were from Bellingham we had many guests staying at the hotel and I rate it as excellent. The staff were very helpful and eager to help us in anyway. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and there were many area's in the hotel people could meet in groups.
I would rate it as excellent.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AmandaA22 Not impressed
We decided to check into the hotel and go spend someime with our family before actually looking at our room. We came back late and went to the room the # that was written on our card, only to have the room keys not work. We went back to the lobby, had the keys reactivated and again they did not work. A woman then opened the door to the room that was supposed to be ours and was not very pleased that we had been trying to get into her room. We got re-booked into a different room right next to laundry room only to be woken up to loud music and noise coming from the laundry room. Frankly I would not reccomend this location to anyone and was not at all impressed with the way that they handled booking us in the wrong room!! I want my money back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Andy108 Great location but noises for rooms in mid floor
Initially, I stayed at 2nd floor when checked in, I took a short rest but woke up by noises of water pipes and guest walks from upper floor. Eventually, front desk changed the room for me to 3rd floor and noises gone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GB132 one of the best value hotels in the World!
Got advice before we arrived via email. collected from train station and taken to the airport next day. They allowed early check in and looked after bags when we checked out. The service levels at this Hotel are second to none. Breakfast was filling and lots of choice and the rooms were clean and tidy. This is probably the best value hotel deals I have had anywhere in the world so far and I travel a lot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Judy46364 Comfortable bed and great location
We found this hotel to be very easy to locate as we were not from the area.The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable.The breakfast was very good with plenty of seating and clean tables and food prep area. The selection was well stocked and replenished regularly.The staff was very polite and helpful.Check in and out was fast and efficient.Our only complaint was the number of dogs staying on our floor.We saw at least five and there was a lot of incessant barking and scratching at their doors.While we would stay here again we would definitley request to stay on a "dog free" floor.

The overall size and comfort of our room was great for our need. Our bed was comfortable giving both of us a good night's rest for the planned activities with our grand kids the following day.The complimentary breakfast offered a lot of choices to get our day started and was well stocked.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JRwkids Fun midweek getaway
My children (ages 6 and 12) and I stayed for two nights mid-week in April over Spring Break. The room and beds were comfortable and quiet. And although the pool is smaller than it appears in photos, it and the spa were quite nice; read, we spent hours swimming. The breakfast selection was much better than the usual fare and the kids LOVED the pancake machine.
Also, we went to two wonderful museums in downtown B'ham: Spark, the museum of electrical invention (better for older kids--and get a docent to show how stuff works) and Mindport (a great hands-on science museum with a $2 entrance fee (and Spark was only $6 for 10+ and $3 for little ones). We'll probably go back to Spark some weekend because they have a Tesla Coil that generates 4 million watts!!!, but they only demonstrate on weekends.
Overall, a fun trip north.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Loud420 Loud and Uncomfortable
When I reserved my room (in advance) I requested a King room. I was informed that the King rooms were for guests checking in over the weekend. Regardless of my priority status, I was informed that I could change to a King room after the weekend guests had checked out.
Guests with children was continually placed over my room. Constant heavy walking and children running over head caused many sleepless nights.
