The Coachman is the perfect "on the way" hotel. We flew into Vancouver late and drove to Bellingham. Its a short trip and then we avoid this busy border lineup in the morning. At any rate, we didn't want to spend a ton because we were getting up the next day and heading to Seattle.
The rooms are dated yes, but clean, which is what I wanted.
The staff are terrific and I enjoyed the breakfast area.
Perfect for what we wanted.
