“A very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very clean and immaculately kept motel, very much in the tradition of a what we remember on Route 66. Everything works correctly. A very friendly staff who attend to your needs immediately with obvious pride in what they do. The small pool is clean and adequate for a warm day's swim. Our bed was as good as any three star hotel. In contrast to other hotels in town, the price for a room is extremely fair. They offered secure storage for our bikes. The hotel was in a prerect location not more than a mile from downtown Bellingham and directly east of the Fairhaven village. There was nothing that one can criticize. The breakfast includes hard boiled eggs, cereals, toast and bagels and the fruit is fresh.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 109 (perfect for two people) which was very convenient to the rest of the motel fa...

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.
