Started in a small room in the basement with no air conditioner and very spotty to no internet. Talked to front desk and they moved me to a 2nd floor room in another building but still about 100yds from the router - still spotty service that cuts in and out. Works great in the middle of the parking lot and... More

Made the booking online, checking in was easy, the hotel itself is very easy to find (lots of signage along the highway approaching it), great customer service.... Easy and hassle free. Large, clean rooms with a deck and a kitchenette. The kitchenette was fully stocked - very handy for multiple night stays. There is both a pool and a hot... More

After several hours of traveling, we were warmly greeted at Oak Harbor's Coachman Inn. My husband and I stayed in one of the rooms with a King size bed. Very clean, nice room with kitchen, bathroom, living area and a good size private balcony (fit two of us with room to spare for two more chairs/two guests). We found the... More

Second stay here for an overnight in Whidbey. The front desk service was top notch - they were very gracious about a last minute date change. When we arrived they had made an error in the type of room they had reserved for us, and upgraded us at no extra charge to make it right. We stayed in the Crow's... More

I've stayed here twice, and both times was very pleased with the hotel. The rooms are large, well furnished, and ours had a kitchenette (stovetop but no oven). The front desk staff was very nice, and even recognized us from a previous stay maybe 6 months earlier. It's right off the highway, which is convenient for travelling around the island,... More

So here is the thing about reviews on hotels, you absolutely have to qualify what and how you are reviewing. This hotel is a fine little place as long as you are not expecting luxury or quiet relaxation. This is good as a base for other activities but not really a place where hang out in the hotel room is... More

We've been to the Coachman Inn 3 times in as many years. Our decision to stay here each time we've visited Whidbey has largely come down to price, and for that, you really cannot beat the Coachman Inn. But as we get older and more traveled, we've begun to realize you do get what you pay for We stayed 3... More

The Coachman is generally my :home away from home" when I stay in Oak Harbor for Race Week. Granted it is somewhat dated, but they have done the most they can with what they have, and seem to take a genuine interest in ensuring guests are comfortable within the obvious limitations they have ( dated facilities ). The breakfast is... More

This was my second visit to this hotel and I did not regret it. We had a deluxe queen room with 2 queen beds, a pull-out sofa, a mini kitchen and a balcony. The beds were very comfortable and the location was pretty quiet. Parking was right outside our room and the room was very spacious. We swam in the... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The positives were very friendly staff and a great location. The cleaning staff leave friendly handwritten notes. The negatives were very small double beds and no elevator. Fortunately they changed us to a ground-floor room upon request. The breakfast was not that great, and it was hard checking out because the front-desk staff... More
