Recommend Nanaimo Coast for whatever visit you have. A good hotel can always make a business trip into a pleasurable trip this was business for my husband but a pleasure trip for me. Love the magnified makeup mirror and lighting in the bathroom.

I stayed at the Coast Bastion hotel recently for an overnight road trip to Nanaimo. From the moment we arrived, I was impressed with the hospitality. You kind of expect Canadians to be friendly, but the staff was also very competent. Everything - from checking in, to parking my own car, to the restaurant - was just right. The hotel... More

Bring your walking shoes as there are so many wonderful places close by to see. The room was large bright clean with oversized toiletries and cozy bathrobes. Well worth staying here over a motel. Free parking for handycapped pattrons

Very clean, comfortable and friendly. We had an ocean view room with a very small balcony but gave great view of the Nanaimo harbour. Very close to the harbourfront so we had lovely evening walks exploring. Breakfast at the attached restaurant was excellent.

This hotel is right on Nanaimo harbour. I had comfortable room which was listed as deluxe, but not sure how that was different than a normal room..Great view of the harbour.. Restaurant had problems, but front desk staff refunded the full price of my meal. Do not order the fish tacos.

The room was very clean and spacious - lots of room, even with our two big suitcases. Beautiful view, overlooking the harbour; by stepping onto the juliet balcony we also had a city view. Harbour front across road. Would love to stay there again.
