“Great management and very quiet hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2009

My wife and I stayed here for six days during October. The manger was very accommodating and went out of his tp make our stay comfortable. The room was a little small but very clean. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. An adequate continental breakfast was provided. This hotel is close to Western Washington University and a Haggen's Supermarket is across the street. Numerous restaurants are nearby. We would not hesitate to stay here again. The rates are considerably less than other chain hotels in the city and the service is outstanding.

We stay here every time we visit our daughter at college.
very clean basic rooms for a great price.
The owner goes way above and beyond to make your stay above and beyond.
If you want a great rate and a clean room I give this place an A+

  • Liked — clean with a great price. Extremly friendly staff

Best budget hotel I have ever stayed. Best service, even compared to high end hotels. Cleanest by far. Perfect 10.

We were treated royally at this hotel.I knew that guests were special when you went to open the door to the office.The doors were leaded glass & nice brass handles.Very inviting.
The room was spotless & security good also.The price of the room includes a free breakfast which includes cereal,muffins,all sorts of juices & some even organic & fresh fruit,also tea or coffee.There is a fridge in every room plus a coffee pot.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a clean room at a fantastic price.It has been totally remodeled & brand new carpets in the rooms & halls.Do not go looking for the brown building in the picture as its now a nice sunny yellow.

I have now stayed here several times as my son attends WWU, which is easily accessible from the Coachman. The first time I arrived I thought it looked a little sketchy but was quickly reassured after meeting the owner and his family, as well as his staff -- WWU students. They keep an eye on EVERYTHING and the place is cleaner than most "3 star" chain hotels I have stayed in. Wireless service works great on secured network, bed, shower, towels, TV, parking -- all fine. Door locks are also reassuring for single female travelers. nice fridge, microwave in hall, lovely fresh continental breakfast. Owner always pleasant and willing to please. Looking forward to always staying here during my son's stay at WWU. Best place in Bellingham.

We stayed there for 3 nights while visiting Bellingham to meet my daughter's boyfriend. The hotel is close to Western Washington U.

We enjoyed the hot tub and Sauna for 2 or those nights. It does take 15-20 minutes to heat up the Sauna. Towels were plush, rooms came with refrigerators and coffeemaker. There was a microwave on a stand to use in the hallway if needed. This is a well kept older hotel. I missed having the sink in the main part of the room instead of being housed with the bath and toilet. The staff was very courteous. Continental breakfast consisted of 4 types of cereal, instant oatmeal. packaged muffins and danish, apples, juice, milk, coffee and bottled water with bar and couch seating. The wireless internet required a code for which you must ask for from the front desk. They also provide PC in the lobby with a printer, although I did not use the printer.

For those staying in the late summer months, checkout the wild blackberries growing next to the back of the parking lot. Watch out for the killer thorns tho!

The hotel seems to have ample rooms. It is currently the highest rated hotel in Bellingham at half the cost of the next 3 rated hotels. We paid with a Senior discount $63 per night. If this hotel is full, there are lots of other hotels on Samish Way, a few of the more economic hotels are poorly rate.

Another note, we were the only ones using the hot tub and sauna and the hotel staff happily did not kick us out after the posted 10pm closing time.

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.
