“Amazing views, wonderful rooms, awesome location!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Stayed here with a friend for two nights in Room 808. We had a view of the ocean, and our room was very clean, well kept, and in great condition. We were right near the Seawall Walkway which was great. Easy access to many areas around the island by car, and a great place to come back to after a long day of adventuring.

Coast has an awesome practice of providing full-size shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion bottles to reduce waste. There's no need at all to bring your own. They also provide smaller sizes of each and small sizes of soap, mouthwash, etc.

An amazing hotel that I will definitely stay at again. At this price, you absolutely can not beat it!

Room Tip: Room 808 has an awesome view of the ocean, though is right near an intersection (if noise bothers yo...

My husband and I stayed in a room with a queen bed with a great view; clean comfy room; good cleaning service; friendly staff; dog friendly room. We were close enough to Nanaimo to come and go to events there too.

Room Tip: Our view was wonderful and would want a room with a view.

The first room we were given had wet carpeting in some spots. We called the front desk to report the problem. We were given a new room and the concierge immediately moved our bags. What you get is a spacious room with a great view of Gabriola Island and the mountains off in Vancouver. The hotel is centrally located to a number of restaurants within a easy walk. You are also across the street from the promenade where you can take a leisurely walk along the water. The bathroom comes fully loaded with all kinds of lotions and washes. It also has a message showerhead to which was needed after a full day of kayaking.

Room Tip: The junior suite comes with a nice livingroom area with a chaise chair, small dining table and two a...

We found this hotel to be a great stay. We were here only one night but everything was immaculate.

The hotel is close to the ferry terminal. The beds were comfy and there was no sound from the road outside.

We ate in the restaurant downstairs; lovely meal.

Room Tip: Harbour room would be good!

...close to the waterfront and promenade, modern clean room, but most importantly the staff managed to handle my error in booking - I'd booked online and messed up the dates! - found a room for us and our old dog really quickly, even though the pet friendly rooms were full...really appreciated their attention to our needs...

The Coast Bastion was a perfect way to begin our 4-day VC Island vacation. Check-in was easy and our 11th floor upgraded room has a view to die for. Front desk staff were helpful with suggestions for dinner, and the location can't be beat if you are interested in strolling along the harbor front. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. Free WiFi is a plus.

We paid a little extra to stay in a room on the bay side of the hotel. We were on the 13th floor, and couldn't be happier with our room. The bed was very comfortable, the room was larger than most, and had a teeny tiny balcony accessed through a sliding door. There was a chaise lounge where you could lean back and look at the view.

Room Tip: It's worth the little bit extra to get the Bay view--the higher the floor the better.
