5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Could not ask for better accommodation when I visit Farehaven and Bellingham with a great price point. The out door pool was a cool bonus and breakfast also a surprisingly large continental selection. Room was clean and everything worked. I will be a repeat customer.

As you approach the hotel, your first impression is, "uh-oh...this doesn't look like much!". But, once you get there, you realize that the rooms (though older) are clean, everything works, TV has expanded COMCAST selections, and there's even a small (but clean!) pool available for the kids! Also, we noticed the front desk has a large computer screen constantly showing views from the 15 security cameras stationed on the grounds. AND, the included Continental Breakfast was actually pretty good! [Lots of milk, creamer, OJ, butter, cream cheese in a separate mini-fridge at the end of the breakfast bar!] A great value for the money!

My wife and I both went to WWU and recently had to return to Bellingham. We decided on the Coachman because of it's great reviews, low prices, and proximity to campus. We were both very surprised at how nice it is. As far as amenities go, it is a dated motel. But that's more than made up for by the clean rooms and amazing service. We chatted for awhile with the owner after our first night and he couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. There's plenty of parking outside each room and a great continental breakfast. Will stay there again!

Small family owned motel, convenient location right off I-5 in Bellingham.

Our room was sparkling clean and bed was comfortable, and the price was certainly right.

I would have no hesitation to stay here again or to recommend it to others.

This is a great older property, updated and clean. Front desk service is excellent. WiFi worked well, and they have a more than adequate continental breakfast. Several restaurants are right across the street.

Room Tip: Room 118 is quiet.

Great price, great service, clean and comfortable room. Its not the greatest looking place from the outside, but the rooms are nice, clean and the beds are comfortable. Located right off the freeway and not much of a drive to Bellingham Airport.

Over the last two decades we’ve stayed at the Coachman Inn about two dozen times and we’ve never been disappointed. We can always count on a friendly reception from the courteous owners and staff, and a clean, comfortable, quiet room. The room rates are excellent and other guests staying here tend to be courteous.

A complimentary breakfast buffet is provided. It consists of bagels, croissants, hard boiled eggs, cereal, bananas, and fruit. Beverage choices are coffee, orange juice, bottled water, and milk. There are also many restaurants in the immediate area if that is desired, and access to them is easy.

This hotel is conveniently located just off I-5, one of the first southern exits into Bellingham, and access to the airport from the hotel is straightforward. After a good night’s sleep and a spot of breakfast, we’re on our way again. Check-in and check-out procedures are simple and convenient.

The hotel complex consists of several buildings and we usually opt to stay on the second floor in a non smoking room. The room is rather basic with a comfortable bed, lamp, TV, bathroom , etc. , and the room is always clean.

Room Tip: Book early because this hotel is popular.
