We were attending a local event, and decided to stay at the Coast as it was close to the event.
The location of this hotel is excellent! It is close to the border - so you can pop over to save money on gas, and close to lots of restaurants.
On that note: The hotel has an agreement with Me & Ed's Pizza for 15% off for hotel guests. Please note that this discount does NOT apply to "specials". The food at Me & Ed's is VERY expensive, so you really need that discount! Also, the menu posted in the Elevator is old - the prices shown on it are lower than the current prices. Hard to believe that a single large Pizza is more expensive than $26, but it is! It is good Pizza, but you best have deep pockets! You have been warned.
That said, the hotel offers "Breakfast". What they should be more clear about in promotional materials is that this is what they call "Continental Breakfast". And a scant one at that! Basically, some Croissant and small pastries from Costco, a limited selection of fruit, some good orange juice, some coffee and tea. That is IT. Nothing "hot", and not a single scrap of protein - no bacon, no sausage, no boiled eggs, no yogurt, no cheese, no toast, no oatmeal....
Suffice it to say, breakfast was an abysmal disappointment.
On the plus side, when we checked in, the lady at the front desk gave us a free upgrade because the type of room we booked (2 queen beds) was on the 2nd floor. It seems that there was a large wedding party that pretty much had the 2nd floor booked, and she wanted us to have a quiet and restful stay!
WOW! We appreciated this! We were upgraded to room 419 on the 4th floor. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop! Actually, when in the bathroom we did hear one of the bathroom fans from another room - but not enough to bother us!
This hotel has a pool and a hot tub. And unfortunately - NO specified "Adult" hours for the pool! When we went down there were around six kids - not being supervised - that were running amok! The yelling, the screaming... Yes, we know "kids will be kids". How about Kids will behave themselves and be respectful? We got fed up with sitting in the hot tub and having water splashed into our face from the antics of the kids in the main pool!
I hope the hotel management reads this: PLEASE!!! Make the first and last hour of the posted pool hours for "adults only"!!! There was a guy there who had come down to the pool to get away from his kids - and he was miffed that he had to put up with someone else's kids! And I don't blame him.
As I said, the room was quiet. The TV was great. The bed was amazingly comfortable. We got a great nights sleep!
We would stay here again. Just bring some of our own stuff for breakfast. :)
