“Great value and recommend highly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2009

All the reviewers are right on the coachman. Great place to stop for a night after or before visiting the San Juan's or Vancouver islands. We stayed at the Best Western Lakeside before our trip started and then the Coachman after. The convenience of getting in and out, price and comfort far exceeded the Lakeside.

I can't speak highly enough of the guys who run this motel. They are friendly, flexible, and helpful far beyond the call of duty;. They went out of their way to help me--a solo middle-aged female traveller--and the site felt very safe and secure under their watchful eyes. Additionally, the rooms are very clean, comfortable and well sized. A joyful experience!

The Gentlemen at the front desk were more than helpful and very friendly. They are even shipping my daughters pillow (her beloved pillow) back to us free of charge. The rooms are clean, not fancy at all but clean and inexpensive for the 1 night. The property is well kept. Breakfast in the morning and coffee. I doubt I will be back in this area but if it were just for a night I would probably stay again.

Our stay at the Coachman Inn exceeds our expectations ! We wanted a clean, safe and a homey atmosphere all for a reasonable inexpensive price. We got that and much more. The Coachman Inn provided my family and myself an atmosphere of home sweet home. Coachman Inn reminded us of a really good bed and breakfast, with a ma and pa homey type of atmosphere. The Customer Service was exceptional, Management was very friendly, helpful and courteous. Nice outdoor size swimming pool with a deck to watch the kids play. Very comfortable quarters and a good continental breakfast. Management & Staff were very friendly and helpful and instantly assisted us in recommending a place to eat and giving us easy directions. An example of this exceptional service was when we were hanging around the pool and had breaked for dinner, it had rained for a short while and when we returned to bring our little boys back into the pool all the furniture was wet so Management ran out to dry the entire outdoor furniture /chairs/table for us so we could enjoy the rest of the evening. That was one of many little things that made our stay special. We would definetly recommend the Coachmann Inn to all of our family and friends and would most definetly stay there again.

We stayed at the Coachman Inn (while attending a family wedding in Bellingham) mostly due to the reviews we read online at TripAdvisor. We were pleasantly surprised with the courteous service we received and the cleanliness of the rooms. The staff were more than helpful in getting everything we needed promptly (i.e. an iron to press clothes, and a sheet for our 11-month old's travel crib), and happily struck up conversations with my talkative father-in-law! We would definitely stay here again! Highly recommended!

I have stayed in many chain and indepentent motels all over the U.S. and Canada. The Coachman Inn was by far the cleanest of them all. Their attention to detail showed from the polished brass lobby door handle to the fresh white stripes lining the parking lot and (heated) pool. The staff was friendly and helpful. The price was more than fair.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past two years, as I live in Vancouver and often make the trip down to shop in the US. The staff is always very friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location is good, close to I-5, but you don't hear it.
The only complaint I have is that the light from the parking lot tends to blast in through the window so you have to be a little creative with the way you close the blinds.
A continental breakfast is included. Closeby are several restaurants and a fantastic grocery store called Hagan.
