This was a pleasant surprise. My experience with the Express version has not been overly positive. Staff was very helpful. Room was fine. Breakfast was okay. One small pet peeve. I certainly wish that Holiday Inn would improve its lighting as every light is in the building is abrasive and cold.

Great hotel to stay in while in Bellingham. Hotel has a very friendly and caring staff and the rooms are up to date and exceptionally clean. Breakfast also has a nice variety with several healthy options like a veggie egg white omelette when I visited. I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel seems to be recently renovated and the rooms looked clean. I was happy enough until I woke up in the morning and saw something crawling out of my hair and across the pillow. I managed to catch it in a cup. Management came up to my room and confirmed it was a bed bug. Later that evening I...

We reserved two rooms, specifying that they needed to be first floor rooms, as we would have pets and needed easy access to the outdoors. Was promised that the pet rooms were first floor rooms, and that there would be no problems. I arrived first, right at the first available check in time, and was offered a second floor room;...

On arrival I was greeted warmly by the desk staff. They were professionally dressed, well groomed and answered my questions confidently.
