Clean comfortable basic continental Breakfast. If you have basic needs and expectations this is a good value. This is a budget hotel and staff are friendly and curtious. If you ask they will do there best to accommodate. They will allow free parking for airport travellers.

We picked this hotel based on TA reviews planning to stay just one night while traveling with friends from Seattle to Vancover via Woodinville and it's tasting rooms. The hotel is far from new, but everything was freshly painted and well maintained, rooms were of average size but did have a little fridge and there was a shared microwave in... More

Finally, a value-for-money place to stay while blowing through town. Poor Bellingham, we never come to stay and play. We’re always on our way somewhere and just need a quiet room and comfortable bed for the night. Up until now, staying in Bellingham has always felt like a you-get-what-you-pay for experience and we’ve bowed to it. But TripAdvisor reviews lead... More

Overnighted at the Coachman last night after travelling from Vancouver, BC to Everett,WA to see the Village Theatre's production of Les Miserable. For fans of the show this is a must see .Was outstanding-better than the Vancouver show at the Queen Elizabeth last year. But I digress-back to the Coachman. Arrived at around19H45-check in was quick and friendly.Asked for a... More

As usual we stayed here before flying out early the next day! This family run hotel is just SIMPLY the best! It is old and far from the most modern, however, if you are looking for clean, and nice this is it! This family goes the extra mile. We often leave for a flight in the middle of the night... More

Clean, but far from elegant. A good place to stop if all you want is a place to spend the night before traveling on. The free breakfast was perfectly good, but decidedly normal; i.e., nothing very exceptional. Staff was attentive. Price was very good.

We picked this hotel out through Trip Advisor and were really glad we found it! Everything was really clean, everyone was super nice. Hard to believe at the reasonable price we paid there was an exercise room, sauna, and a good breakfast with ORGANIC apples and soy milk! These people are great hosts. Even broght me a bottle of water... More

Second time staying at the Coachman Inn. Very reasonable, very clean and nice people! Good restaurants close by. Descent breakfast included. The rooms are basic but have everything that you would need and amazingly clean. Recommended!

This motel is a great bargain, managed by very attentive and helpful staff. They go above and beyond duty, such as cleaning snow off the cars in the parking lot. Location is convenient to WWU, restaurants, I-5 and Airporter Bus stop. Clients include university families and families attending youth soccer tournaments, etc. We stay here on a monthly basis and... More

I would consider the Coachman Inn to be the best hotel for your money only in the shady part of town. While the staff are always watching the cameras, it gets a little creepy. I would recommend getting a hotel in a different part of town for a similar price.
