“What a delight!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Now this owner does it right, plus he is so personable and helpful. Very comfortable bed, very clean room and wonderful continental breakfast. They had an abundant of fresh strawberries , never saw that before. This is the best value motel I have seen in a long time.

Stayed August 2013, traveled as a couple

It was the only place I could find to stay. The bed wasn't very comfortable. They had a communal microwave in the hall for everyone to use. That was pretty tacky. The furnishings were old. It wasn't as close to the highway as I expected. They had coffee, cereal, etc. for breakfast.

I agree with previous reviews. Comfortable bed, fluffy towels, quiet room. Although the decore is dated it met our needs. Pool and excercise room available. Breakfast adaquate... no eggs the day we were there. Got a chuckle from the communal microwave in the hallway but it worked just fine. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Bellingham or Fairhaven.

Room Tip: Rooms near the office are farthest from the major highway.

Our group overnighted here on July 17, 2013 and we were all thoroughly impressed with this well cared for inn. The place was spotless. The staff was super-friendly. The included continental breakfast offered many options, satisfying all of us. Would highly recommend this place as the perfect place to stay in Bellingham!

For the price it was the best in the area. The room had all the basic amenities and I had a good nights rest after a very long day of traveling. The only drawback for this hotel was that it did not seem to be in the best area of town, but it still felt secure overall because the parking lot was well lit. They say that cleanliness is next to godliness, this hotel must have been a saint for it was very clean and I could not see a speck of dirt anywhere to be found!

A friend and I stayed one night at the Coachman Inn on our way to Vancouver, B.C. We arrived late but were greeted by a friendly staff member and check-in was a breeze. The room was one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in. Everything from top to bottom was immaculate and the beds were incredibly comfortable. There was also free Wi-Fi that worked well and a small continental breakfast in the morning. The decor does look like something right out of grandma's house, but the price, location, cleanliness and safety made that a non-issue.

I will say the outside does look a bit scary. When we pulled in I said, "This may have been a mistake!" Don't fear - it's a wonderful place to stay!

Room Tip: The window of the first floor room are even with the parking lot, so we had some headlight issues. A...
