Wonderful Stay at Coast Hotel
I enjoyed my stay at Coast Hotel and will definitely stay there again. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. Very good continental breakfast. Restaurant was excellent. The Hotel is close to amenities. If you are a Tim Horton’s fan it is just across the street. This hotel is a five minute drive from the Mall.
As expected, an ok stay
Got what I paid for. Lower rate than many of the rest which got me what I paid – a 3 star stay.
Lobby area seems renovated and quite nice. Check-in process was good.
Rooms are ok, I’m not sure what else they could do with concrete walls, except paint them. 3 star rooms for sure.
Continental breakfast had everything you’d expect from a cold version – breads, pastries, cereal, etc. The location on the other hand not so inviting. It is just above, overlooking the lobby and is their lounge. Seating is really for that purpose – a lounge…..only had seating for 2 and high tables for 2 as well. Our family of four could not sit together and no space up there to move table together.
I’m no marketing expert, but to call their lounge “Bartini’s”…not very original and again not that inviting.
Their restaurant – Mr Ribs. We were the only ones in that restaurant on the night we chose and were doted on my the owner and waitress. Food was good.
There is a Tim Hortons across the street and a short walk to Starbucks and Joey’s Restaurant.
If you are looking for a room to sleep in, then this is fine, but if you are looking for a pool and a good family hotel then I recommend paying a bit more and going to something like the Days Inn or Holiday Inn Express.
Dismal from start to finish!
Do not stay here! We were in Room 103 – the sink didn’t even have a towel rack?? I could go on to the describe this hole in the wall but instead I’ll focus on the front desk staff – they don’t know what they are doing! The kid on the desk held us up for at least 20 min. sorting out a double reservation he said we made and insisted we stay there until it got cancelled. As it turned out – he can’t read!! We only had 1 con. # but it was sent to him twice – not our issue to sort out. We are weary traveler that should be allowed to go to our dismal room. When his error was pointed out to him, he offered no apology but the manager the next morning had none to offer either – the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree! Breakfast was the only decent part of this hotel experience. As we were checking out, police, ambulance arrived & they escorted someone away in handcuffs! This Coast Inn should be shut down – renovations done and more competent staff hired. I ‘thought’ I was booking into a safe Coast Inn chain – I was so wrong & I’ll be steering clear of all Coast Inns.

OK, so-so, functional
This is a functional hotel where everything works. The wifi was very good. This hotel is located outside of the main shopping and restaurant area of town. I thought it was a little bit rough, but maybe it was just the time of day I chose to venture out.
London Drugs, Tim Hortons, and a few functional type shops are in the area. Not a lot of restaurant choices. Mr Ribs is a restaurant attached to the hotel, but it’s not part of the hotel so you cannot charge your meals to your room.
Front office staff is nice. I am not too keen on the room. The air freshener they used got me into sneezing fits and a runny nose. Room feels dark. Carpeting was dark too and decoration dated. Desk in my room was barely bigger than the width of my shoulders. Everything is there with the minimum, but it just leaves me wanting just a little more.
Took a while to fall asleep despite my fatigue. Again, functional but the sense of comfort or peace of mind was missing with this hotel. Just can’t put my finger on it.
Checking in and out were efficient. I did not use any other facilities.
The hotel quality is reflective of the very good room rate. You get a complimentary breakfast. Again, it is a breakfast that will fill your stomach functionally; just don’t expect anything fancy.
If you want a quick stopover for a night and have a vehicle to get around, this hotel is OK. If you want something more comfortable, there are other choices in town.

This was my first visit to this hotel, and I will not be returning. The heavy, oppressive colours in the room and corridor made them dark, even on a sunny day. Because it was so dark – and because of the outdated furniture – I couldn’t tell if the room was actually clean. The bed was made up with crisp, clean bedding, however.
