Unfortunately, our plane had issues and therefore we had an unexpected stay I'm Bellingham rather than our destination, Maui. We were devastated but the nighttime cookie, friendly staff, good clean comfy beds and fabulous breakfast made us very welcome and we would stay again. They are renovating their pool but we were too tired to worry about that! If you...

I want to preface this by saying that I'm a Platinum member of Priority Club and I redeemed points for my stay. The hotel was easy to find and in good condition while undergoing a renovation. I've stayed here before and I don't know if the management has changed but the experience was marred by two things very important to...

Stayed here two nights. Have stayed here before. The best thing is that they allow pets and since I was attending a nearby dog show that was important to me. Parking is very convenient to the rooms. Very nice breakfast including hot foods, eggs, bacon and biscuits and a pleasant breakfast area. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel...

After a long drive in the rain I was happy to arrive and receive a warm welcome from the front desk staff. I had heard that the hotel offered a choice of pillows: there they were, all labelled. It was great to have a pillow that suited me, and gave me a good night's sleep. After a hot breakfast I...

We traveled with friends for a bit of cross-border shopping. The Holiday Inn Express is convenient to the Bellis Fair Mall and a number of other stores.

We stayed here to attend a milestone birthday party. Even though we had a non-smoking room, the whole hotel smells of cigarettes, so it's a mute point.

The hotel is a standard Holiday Inn Express. The front desk staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Husband is a priority club member due to constant business travel, so we usually choose Holiday Inns when we travel.
