“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We booked the Coachman Inn as a stop-over on our way to Seattle. It's on "motel row" which makes it easy to find, but isn't of course the most chi-chi area of a city. That said, it's really easy to find off the freeway, VERY clean - everything was so clean: the room, the bathroom, the parking lot, the little fitness room (which we did use, and all the equipment worked!) and the outdoor pool (which we did not use because it was night-time). Nice continental breakfast included in the price. Very quiet, even though it's close to busy streets, but we had no noise at all in our room (we were in the second building from the office). The towels were very good quality. And the price was definitely right!

If you are looking for a clean, well run, basic motel with excellent attitude from management this is your place. The room with 2 double beds for three people was a bit of a squeeze but the bathroom was clean and the room quiet. Where this motel exceeded expectations was with the continental breakfast which offered a wide array of choices not always seen elsewhere and a very solicitous manager who rushed to help my elderly husband who was having difficulty getting his cream cheese packet open and peeling his hard boiled egg. Would definitely return again.

Yes, the furnishings are dated, and there is indeed a communal microwave in the hallway, but the bed was very comfortable and the rooms were quiet. Service was great. The owner went out of his way to accommodate. I was happy to see healthier options available for breakfast. Value for money.

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.

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!
