We stayed one night in the Coast Bastion hotel in Nanaimo as we had to take the ferry to Horseshoe Bay very early the next morning. And when you’re visiting Vancouver Island for tourist purposes, I guess that’s the only reason to book a hotel in this city. The hotel was a nice surprise as it's contemporary decorated and the...

We crossed from Horseshoe Bay on the passenger/car ferry. As we were heading north this was the best location for us to stay. It was comfortable, clean & quiet with easy access to shops and the beautiful early morning walk along the marina board walk.

My husband and I went to Nanaimo for the first time for an anniversary. Decided to stay here and so glad we did. It was five (5) days of convenience. The staff at reception was helpful and very informative. We stayed on the 15th floor and had a great water view with shops across the street, restaurants, ferries coming and... More

It is not often we think of a hotel as a retreat, especially if the hotel is in the middle of the city but the Coast Hotel on Bastion Street in Nanaimo is just that, a wonderful retreat. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. The view from my room was spectacular, the meals in the hotel restaurant were so... More

This is a really nice place to stay. View from our room of the harbor and Newcastle Island was great. The room was well laid out and we had plenty of space. We like to do a lot of walking on our trips and this location was great for that.. Harbor area, downtown, Vancouver Island Military Museum a few blocks... More

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times, and is usually our first choice for Nanaimo. Check in was very fast and friendly. We were upgraded to the top floor with the best two person jacuzzi tub we've ever used. The room was very clean and well stocked. We did not have our camera on us, the the... More

I recently had my 6th stay at this property. The only problem I had was its popularity! I checked in on a Wednesday evening with a reservation. However, it was 8:30 p.m. and the room I was assigned was overtop the HVAC system. All the rooms are view facing with various sizes of balcony. I like to sleep with the... More

We stayed with our family while attending an event in Nanaimo. The hotel is perfectly located across the waterfront. Rooms are well equiped, clean and well lighted. Public areas are clean. Staff was very helpful. They allowed s late checkout. The only minus is the parking. It is not only charged (perhaps understandable since it is in downtown) but the... More
