The number 1 place to stay in Nanaimo by far....

Excellent room with an unbeatable view. One of the best sleeps I've had in a hotel in a long, long time.

Great selection of food on menu - if they have the seafood pasta on the menu order it. Breakfast menu provides a good selection of whatever you want. Staff are great both in the bar and in the restaurant. Ask for selections.

This is our go to hotel when staying in Nanaimo, mainly for the location, walk along the ocean, for the ocean view and the hotel is quite nice as well. The front desk is always friendly and very efficient, the prices are reasonable. We will return

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 know where to park.... 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.
