Coast Medicine Hat Hotel
Friendly welcome on arrival
We were in town for a concert and having stayed at Coast Hotels previously, we booked this online. When we drove up we thought…uh oh, its an oldie. We entered the lobby and it was a welcoming environment, a little rock waterfall next to the stairs and nice decor.
The check in staff member was very polite and friendly, and when she located our reservation on her terminal, she asked of we had booked online. We thought the price was going to go up due to a booking error, but she informed us that there is a spring special on and we got a $20 discount on the rate. Perfect! We had a few laughs with her and when she heard we were going to take a taxi to the concert, she made the arrangements for us. Nice touch.
The room was a bit of a let down as maintenance was needed. The hingers on the bathroom door were shot so you had to lift on the door handle in order to close it. When I got in the shower the curtain rod was so low I nearly had to limbo to get in…exageration of course but I did smack my head a good one. I could see over the top of the curtain while standing in the shower. The odour in the room and corridors indicated that this is an old hotel which was heavily smoked in at one time…the deodorizer smells mixed with the tobacco smells created a unique scent.
The breakfast is the typical thing you get with a room like this, but we usually just have a yogourt or something anyway.
For a quick overnight stay not too bad.
well kept and reasonable priced
this accomodation was in an emergency occasion so at the time we were in a rush so we took what was available in this case it was a pleasant surprise the hotel is well kept clean and nice atmosphere the staff were very friendly and very helpful would stay again in the future
good location, moderate room
close to most restaurant on the main street and close to hwy exit. I believe it is renovated from old motel so bathroom are very basic. Quiet room. Good for a quick stay. Breakfast has good enough items.

We were looking for a place to sleep overnight and did not want to spend a lot of money. We checked out a number of lower priced motels in the area and were convinced that we were not going to find anything at a reasonable price. We stumbled onto the Coast Hotel by accident. At first, we thought it was an empty building. There were no big fancy signs. The parking lot was almost empty. We decide to stop in and have a look anyway. When we got inside the lobby, we were shocked at the difference from outside to inside. It was very inviting and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We were again shocked when we saw our room. It was way more than we expected for the price. The décor was very inviting. We felt very at home there and are definitely going to stay there again if we ever travel through that area again. There was also a great choice of food and drink within walking distance

First impression of hotel was good, check in easy and staff very helpful. However, the room was below average. A fridge with a microwave and coffee maker stacked on top was placed right next to the bed about 3 inches from the pillow! Needless to say, the fridge we unplugged so that we could sleep. Biggest beef was that the hotel website advertised an on-site restaurant, but on arrival this was closed. This was the reason we had chosen the Coast. After a long road trip the last thing you want to do is to think about where to sleep. A quick adjustment to the website is needed. The reception said that it was difficult to do this as it was a temporary thing. The shower in the room was designed for small people. We will not be staying at a Coast hotel again.
