Love this hotel experience. Good rooms. Great location. Amazing staff. Highly recommend the flying fish next store for a little shopping and the dinghy dock restaurant on protection island for a cold beer and a great view back at the city.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Great location, super comfortable rooms, and the result is a destination in itself. We'd planned to return to the mainland througj Victoria but this hotel made us return through Nanaimo.

The hotel was very clean, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I forgot to pack my toothbrush and when I asked at reception in the morning where the nearest store was, they gave me a brand new toothbrush, along with toothpaste. I know this is probably not unique to this hotel, but was great service nonetheless. My room...

The Coast Bastion is close to downtown, restaurants, the waterfront and the convention centre. Hotel staff are friendly and efficient. Some street noise on the lower floors. Restaurant was always good on previous visits.

Live in Victoria and the Coast Bastion Hotel is our place in Nanaimo to spend a few nights away. Take a room overlooking the waterfront to watch all that goes on...we never close our drapes. I love to gamble and it is a short walk to the casino.
