“Lovely Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

The room (#1515) as very elegantly decorated, comfortable and had a lovely view of the harbour. I would certainly stay again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

Stayed there one night, had a superior room with 2 doubles.On the 8th floor the harbour view was awsome. Had supper in the Minnoz Restaurant , great seafood. Breakfast was just ok. Beds comfy. The only bad thing to say about this Hotel : you have to park your vehicle in an unsecure city parkade next door,my vehicle was ok the next morning, but it was a concern when I parked it there for the nite

Coast Hotels, generally speaking have a reputation for being good to their staff and as a result their staff pay it forward providing great service to their guests. Hard to believe how many operators in the hospitality biz still haven't figured that out.
Clean modern comfortable rooms contemporary post modernist decor in the rooms. Good food and great coffee available right downstairs. Fabulous views and probably best to try for higher floors as the downtown location, while convenient, can be a bit noisy.
Have stayed here several times on business and appreciate the great government rate that makes it all possible.

Room Tip: Higher Up the better for quiet and awesome views

We loved our stay at the Coast Bastion in Nanaimo. It's location is excellent, right downtown. The rooms are newly renovated, with amazing views, really nice bathroom, cool carpet and comfy chaise lounger. Will definitely come back.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

There was nothing wrong with the hotel, check in was fantastic, staff were great, room was updated and looked modern in stature. I think what irked me the most was you pay that much for a room, and there is no breakfast included or even a coupon for the restuarant downstairs, you think something would be added with our stay or least to tempt you to spend your money in the hotel rather then take it some where else.
What really got under my skin was the parking or lack of it! We parked in the lot across the street from the hotel, because I do not think the hotel has parking on site, we paid for as much as we could, the twelve hours, and because we over stayed our welcome by twenty minutes, there was a parking ticket sitting on windshield when we left. I did notice cars in the parking lot with parking passes from another hotel on the dashes of there cars, maybe the Coast could look at doing the samething.
I have paid a lot less at other hotels and have got a lot more in return.
