Would be hard to beat for an economy motel. Quiet, very clean (looks recently painted/updated), reasonably priced, friendly staff. Hot water, big towels, hair dryer, free continental breakfast, comfortable bed, even near bus stops. A definite thumbs up!

nice cozy, clean room with a super comfy bed and desk. They invested their money in the right things. The owner was a true gentleman and there was no rush to check out in the morning, we stayed well past 12:30pm, which we felt very badly about. we worked on our laptops out of our car in the parking lot...

I have stayed here eight times over the past two years on various business trips. You could not ask for a better value. The rooms are clean, the showers are hot, the people are very helpful and kind. I will keep coming back again and again and I would advise anyone to do the same. Forrest

We paid $60 for a basic room. It was reasonably clean generally but is clearly showing its age. There was black mold in various places in the bathroom. The people who run it seemed very nice and accommodating. I don't know how it compares to other places in and around Bellingham, but it is definitely not anything special.

We ended up needing several rooms for 1 night at the last minute. The hotel staff was excellent and very accommodating. The location was great with access to the university and downtown. It was a great value for the price. Continental breakfast, free wi-fi and a computer for use in the lobby, hot tub and seasonal pool - I especially... More

I recently returned from a 2 day shopping trip to Bellingham with a friend. We crossed the border with one purpose in mind: To shop till we dropped. In order to maximize our spending money, we chose to book into a "value" motel. As long as it was clean and relatively quiet, we would be happy. When I saw that... More

My adult daughter and I travelled to Canada for the Olympic Games and stayed here on a Saturday night. Almost all hotels had raised prices for this event. We were not sure what to expect for this price, but trusted Trip Advisor and reserved it. IT WAS GREAT! nOT "SUPER FANCY", BUT VERY CLEAN AND FRIENDLY. It had everything we... More

At a time when all the other Bellingham hotels had jacked up their rates for the Olympics, The Coachman maintained its best value rate around. Friendly staff, clean rooms, easy access to Bellingham and freeway. My wife, who has a trouble sleeping in some hotels found the bed very comfortable. It was surprisingly quiet despite being close to the freeway.... More

We stayed one night on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews, and were glad we did. Very reasonably priced [$50 + tax AARP rate] and family run which meant one of the owners received us, gave us the room of our choice, and even carried our bag. The kind of owners who check the room after it’s cleaned, listen to guests,... More
