My wife and I booked the hotel thru priceline and got a price about $20 below the advertised rate. Our purpose for the trip was to visit a friend and their new baby, so spending a lot of time at the hotel wasn't a huge priority. It's a very basic hotel, but well maintained, if slightly outdated. But really, no complaints. We slept great, beds are on the soft side, but was all we needed. The employees were friendly. Continental breakfast was free and basic. Definitely eat/drink and Flyers near by...local food, great fish, burgers, and of course, their own beer.

Frequently reported to be the best in Oak Harbor, I've been coming here for five years with satisfactory results. Comfortable beds with clean large rooms. The breakfast that comes free is mediocre, but the staff is friendly and helpful.

I really liked this place. Everything was great except two things, 1) it was a little difficult getting out of the parking lot and into traffic, and 2) you could tell when housekeeping was doing laundry because the showers hot water would jump to ice cold and then to scolding hot. Don't shower after 9 AM.

Besides that it was fantastic. Amenities were great, rooms were very clean and tidy, alarm clocks worked, beds were comfy, and I loved the nice sinks. I would stay here again.

Immaculate, comfortable and friendly - it doesn't get any better than this! Add to that, reasonable prices, a delicious and generous breakfast and a very comfortable bed. The motel also provides free high speed internet access. The location on Whidbey Island is a very convenient stopover when taking the ferry from Anacortes to the San Juan Islands or to Victoria, BC. This motel really raises the bar as far as service and guest amenities are concerned.

The staff at the Coachman was friendly and helpful, although the front desk seemed minimally staffed and not able to give immediate service to more than one guest. We were given a room upgrade at check-in to a room with a kitchenette. If we were on a longer stay this would have been a signficant plus. The free continental breakfast was adequate but uninspiring. The room was clean and featured a small sofa and chair but the bed sagged a bit toward the middle, which affected our ability to sleep comfortably.

You never know how a motel will be but the Coachman has been great. This is our 4th visit of a week or more over the last 4 yrs. We havr stayed in 3 different type rooms. The quality control is xlnt. They have even improved thrir wi-fi. The breakfast used to br good-continental; but now is deluxe w/ scrambled eggs, biscuit & real sausage gravy, juice,fruit, etc. Staff always great. Try a long term stay. Great location for many daytrips. What else can I say. Off-season rates now in place. Less than posted here. Best value on Whidbey, close to all ferries. If you go in Oct. Dont miss Roche Harbor on San Juan Is. Fall colors like Vermont. Mild temps-formal garden and flowers like Victoria.

You could not go wrong with this hotel. The room was immaculate with fluffy, white towels and all other amenities. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet -- important since the hotel was full when we were there. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant; breakfast was more complete than we expected and exceeded the term "continental breakfast." I highly recommend this hotel if you are planning to catch the ferry through the San Juans. An added bonus was the drive to the hotel. Deception Bay was beautiful and a place that I will remember for a long time.
