A nice surprise in Nanaimo.

We came to visit some future in-laws that live near the harbor and I booked this not really knowing much about the hotel. The Trip Advisor reviews were good so we made the reservations. Luckily, I am a map nerd and looked up Google maps before I came. Like some reviewers said, it's not easy to... read more

This hotel has been the highlight of the 5 hotels we have stayed at, so far on our vacation! The rooms are super clean, large, have large containers of soap, lotion , etc. It's right in the center of the action downtown. We didn't try the restaurant but we heard great things. I would give it 5 stars except for... More

Not the polish of some of the bigger chains (Fairmont, Ritz, hilton, etc) but I really like their style. The rates are good, the rooms are attractive and comfortable, and the staff is genuine. Perfect location too!

What a great find. Made this reservation 6 months ago based on a ferry landing. What a delight. Rooms are large and bright. Bed very comfortable. Towels large. Our view of the harbor was stunning as we watched the sunset reflect off of the buildings. Would definitely recommend Coast hotels. Staff friendly. Restaurant had great food and open late for...

A recently updated hotel in the heart of downtown Nanaimo. They did a very nice job of the renovations. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The fixtures are high end, the furniture is high quality and, best of all, the large flat screen TVs are full HD, unlike most hotels. Very comfortable.

This is s nice clean hotel right on the Harbour so you can't beat the location. Parking is only $8.50 a day which is very reasonable and the hotel is close to the Harbour walk and the ferry to Newcastle Island, where you can walk lovely trails for hours. It's also very close to some great restaurants. We walked to... More

I had the 'Healthy Choice' poached egg with yogurt and fruit. Not much to say about that except the egg was poached perfectly - i asked for soft. They are often over-cooked but this one was just right. There was a good variety of fruit and it was very fresh. Our server was great -very friendly and could carry on... More
