We were looking for a place to lay our heads on a pillow for a few hours and to take a shower in the morning without paying an arm and a leg. We read the reviews and thought we would give this place a try. At first glance the outside of this hotel is pretty old and rundown looking, however... More

Once again, TripAdvisor came through for us. As others have noted, this is a clean, comfortable, older motel with an unobtrusive and courteous staff. We slept well here and didn't feel a lack for anything.

Clean and caring. It is an older motel, but it is kept in exceptionally good shape. There is nothing one can criticize, unless what one wants is the modern visuals that only the national chains can tell us we need. The room is not large but adequate and comfortable. Everything works very well, ice, TV, internet, good beds and bathroom... More

This is an older property that is very well maintained inside and out. The rooms are smallish, but very clean and well cared for. Our room had everything that we needed. The service was outstanding - friendly, courteous, attentive, helpful. Services (restaurants, gas stations, etc.) are close by. When in the area again, we would not hesitate to stay there... More

My wife and I spent two nights at the Coachman Inn in May. We could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation in Bellingham. Our room had everything we needed, and it was spotlessly clean. It was also quiet, and we heard no traffic noise at all. The continental breakfast was more than adequate. The Coachman Inn staff...

My friend and I stayed there six days this past week, and we had a perfect experience. The rooms include great cable and wifi, a small refrigerator and coffee maker, and they are cool and clean. The best continental breakfast I have ever had is included as well, with boiled eggs, muffins, pastries, butter, jam, toast, bagels and cream cheese,... More

We stayed here for two nights based on the reviews posted here. I must say that I totally agree with all the positive reviews. This inn is easily accessed from the interstate. The grounds were immaculate. The rooms are probably a little larger than average and quite comfortable. Great nice fluffy towels, etc. There was a nice continental breakfast served... More

Spent a weekend in Bellingham to attend a wedding and made reservations here. We had not been to Bellingham before so didn't have any idea about places to stay. We definitely made an excellent choice. The personnel was always friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Loved the workout room with treadmill, elliptical, and bike--just... More

This is our last minute decision to stay in Bellingham overnight after spending time on different casinos. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the room. It was very spacious and the towels feels like towels of the 4 star hotel. I love it. The staff are very friendly. We also enjoyed the free continental breakfast. Lots of varieties... More

We stayed here in our way to Vancouver based on these reviews; however I was very cautious as the pictures seemed to me like an outdated hotel with a great price for travelers. My surprise was that it´s really a gem; I don´t recall a better value in the last years. First: management, please change the bed covers to something... More
