“Excellent Value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Couldn't believe the price, and with it you get a decent breakfast too.

Buildings are older, back end (not where our room was) is close to I5 so there is some noise, and the room is pretty basic too. Still, can't beat the value, nice service, and a good Mexican restaurant right across the street.

The Coachman Inn is an older building that has been well maintained! The rooms are clean, the continental breakfast tasty, the location is near shopping and the interstate, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this to Bellingham travelers.

I won't kid you this is a very basic stay in a very typical wayside off an interstate. But the management clearly takes pride in this property. Kudos to them and no hesitation recommending it. Great beds and service. Will be back (to basics).

Room Tip: Stay away from the highway.

A very clean budget hotel and real value. The hotel is old but well maintained. Owners are friendly. We forgot toiletries and the owner called us to arrange a pick up. Very customer oriented. Near mall and shopping but area is a little rough.

My son and I stayed at this hotel for one night. The rental rate ($65+tax) was very reasonable for Bellingham, WA for a weekday night during the busy summer travel season. The outdoor part of this Inn was remarkably impeccable, with a very nice exterior look, nice landscaping and freshly paved and painted parking areas. The outdoor pool appeared to be well maintained and quite inviting on a warm summer evening, but we did not take advantage of it.

The detractors were located on the inside of this Inn. The combined main office lobby and breakfast room had the A/C unit running full tilt, and I experienced some distress from a strong odor of mold that was emanating from it. I mentioned this to the innkeeper, but he said that he couldn't detect any mold odor. I chose not to have my breakfast there.

The room I stayed in was kinda small, and the carpeting was a bit old with some minor stains, but clean, I think. It was located on the ground floor. The A/C unit, while running, was emitting a foul odor that smelled like cat spray. I ran it for about 15 minutes, thinking that the odor would diminish, but it did not. Finally, I shut the A/C Unit down and opened the window with the bathroom exhaust fan turned on to bring fresh outdoor air into the room. Everything was fine after 20 minutes or so, but I left the fan on and window open for about an hour, just to be certain that I had clean fresh air to breathe in to my lungs.

Other than the odors which I'm quite sensitive to, I have no complaints. If I had been assigned to a different room, this review might have been more positive with perhaps a Very Good rating.

Room Tip: If in doubt, ask to inspect the room first, before putting your money down. Run the A/C Unit and ch...

We only stayed one night but we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is older but clean and well kept despite it's age.The beds were really comfy! The reception desk people are very nice. Good value. Restaurants close by.
