We will be forever grateful to the owner of the Coachman Inn for so graciously going out of his way to help us find several lost items in August 2014. Based on Trip Advisor recommendations, we booked a double room at the Coachman Inn during WWU's Summerstart. Btw ~ comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, and great breakfast! Before heading home, we...

Just stayed at this hotel and it was great. It is a family run business which prides itself in fair rates, while every other hotel jacked up their prices for labour day long weekend this hotel didn't. I did not book ahead so wasn't sure I would get a room. I got the last room for a great rate. My... More

If you're on a budget and need a nice, affordable place to stay in Bellingham, this is the place! It is a well-kept, friendly, well-run Inn on a street full of Inns that look like drug deals occur often in their rooms and bed bugs stay full-time. Our room was like something out of a 3.5 star hotel. We were... More

I chosed this property based on the reviews from Tripadvisor. It was clean, real value for money and the room was spacious. I called the 1800 no. to make the booking though you can make reservations online but I wanted to make sure I get a room on the ground floor and away from the street. The breakfast was good... More

As Tripadviser reviewers have stated it is a breath of fresh air. The owner is very nice, helpful and ever accommodating. He walked us to help park in a private although monitored parking spot when we arrived with our boat. The rooms are fresh and clean. The grounds and pool are spotless as well. Nice continental breakfast with little extras... More

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...
