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

The Gentlemen at the front desk were more than helpful and very friendly. They are even shipping my daughters pillow (her beloved pillow) back to us free of charge. The rooms are clean, not fancy at all but clean and inexpensive for the 1 night. The property is well kept. Breakfast in the morning and coffee. I doubt I will... More

Our stay at the Coachman Inn exceeds our expectations ! We wanted a clean, safe and a homey atmosphere all for a reasonable inexpensive price. We got that and much more. The Coachman Inn provided my family and myself an atmosphere of home sweet home. Coachman Inn reminded us of a really good bed and breakfast, with a ma and... More

We stayed at the Coachman Inn (while attending a family wedding in Bellingham) mostly due to the reviews we read online at TripAdvisor. We were pleasantly surprised with the courteous service we received and the cleanliness of the rooms. The staff were more than helpful in getting everything we needed promptly (i.e. an iron to press clothes, and a sheet... More

I have stayed in many chain and indepentent motels all over the U.S. and Canada. The Coachman Inn was by far the cleanest of them all. Their attention to detail showed from the polished brass lobby door handle to the fresh white stripes lining the parking lot and (heated) pool. The staff was friendly and helpful. The price was more... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past two years, as I live in Vancouver and often make the trip down to shop in the US. The staff is always very friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location is good, close to I-5, but you don't hear it. The only complaint I have is that the... More

Ever since our son has been a student at Western Washington University, we have stayed at the Coachman Inn. Of course it is a good value, but so much more. Our whole family looks forward to staying and visiting with the owner. He takes care of us like family. It is comforting while being away from home. The hotel is... More
