When I booked this reservation, I did not have high hopes even after reading all the reviews. I was very happily surprised. The room was spotless with new carpet and beadspreads. It was not the most stylish of motels but for the price it was amazing. I will definitly stay there again when I am in Bellingham.

Don't let the older appearance of this hotel scare you off. The rooms are very clean, the wireless internet is fast and free and the owners/staff are some of the nicest I have encountered. I had planned on staying two nights, but had a change of plans. I asked if it would be possible to get a refund for one... More

We stay here every time we visit our daughter at college. very clean basic rooms for a great price. The owner goes way above and beyond to make your stay above and beyond. If you want a great rate and a clean room I give this place an A+

Best budget hotel I have ever stayed. Best service, even compared to high end hotels. Cleanest by far. Perfect 10.

I have now stayed here several times as my son attends WWU, which is easily accessible from the Coachman. The first time I arrived I thought it looked a little sketchy but was quickly reassured after meeting the owner and his family, as well as his staff -- WWU students. They keep an eye on EVERYTHING and the place is... More

We stayed there for 3 nights while visiting Bellingham to meet my daughter's boyfriend. The hotel is close to Western Washington U. We enjoyed the hot tub and Sauna for 2 or those nights. It does take 15-20 minutes to heat up the Sauna. Towels were plush, rooms came with refrigerators and coffeemaker. There was a microwave on a stand... More

All the reviewers are right on the coachman. Great place to stop for a night after or before visiting the San Juan's or Vancouver islands. We stayed at the Best Western Lakeside before our trip started and then the Coachman after. The convenience of getting in and out, price and comfort far exceeded the Lakeside.

I can't speak highly enough of the guys who run this motel. They are friendly, flexible, and helpful far beyond the call of duty;. They went out of their way to help me--a solo middle-aged female traveller--and the site felt very safe and secure under their watchful eyes. Additionally, the rooms are very clean, comfortable and well sized. A joyful... More
