My husband and I spent 2 nights at this hotel and had a really enjoyable time. Our room was large with stunning views of the harbour and beyond. The king bed was extremely comfortable and I was thrilled to find an actual bathmat in the bathroom. As someone with some mobility issues, this was greatly appreciated. The staff that we...

I was there on business for a week and I have all ready booked my next work accommodation there. Wonderful friendly accommodation staff !! All rooms have views. Would have loved to have a pool and a hot tub on location.

Checked in because it seemed to be the only game in town. Got in late and room service is all done at 10:00pm so went to bed hungry. Breakfast came on time and with a fixed delivery charge, so should I tip? I hate that. $375 for a corner room, When I called in at 3:00pm I was told that...

The room is updated, large, and bright. The bed, pillows, blankets are very comfortable. The windows are large with harbour views on both sides. Worth paying the premium for. The Fitness centre in the hotel is dated and a bit depressing, like most hotels.... The front desk staff is a bit of a mixed bag: some friendly and some not.

My husband and I stayed for two nights and enjoyed the marina and ocean view from the small balcony and window of our room. We loved the chaise which was positioned right by the window where we could relax, listen to the seagulls and take in the wonderful ambiance of this ocean side hotel. The rooms were immaculate, the beds...

Our overall stay at the Coast Bastion was very good..Very relaxing and confortable. Would stay there again if in Nanaimo. Enjoyed our morning walks along the bay watching all the boats and people going by. The weather was perfect so that was a plus.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. Check in was fast & easy. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Location was perfect for us being close to ferry and right on the water. We'd stay here again and recommend to others.

It was a steamy day and the coast looked beautiful from the road, I had to pull over and check it out. I had some beautiful cuisine and the service was exemplary. Geeat job everyone. I will return for sure. In the end I can definitely say I was coming. It was sad to go.

The room is actually pretty nice, with decent beds & view. Unfortunately the internet is intermittent at best and the charge you the full 24hr parking fee of the car park next door? Why do I need to say more? This is one of the really stupid aspects of trip advisor
