Coast Abbotsford Hotel & Suites
$8 (plus tip) taxi fare to the Abbotsford Centre Arena
We returned to Abbotsford, and this hotel, for the Brad Paisley concert. I gave the hotel a positive review after our visit with a sports team in 2012. I thought I would review again to share information about cab fare for concert goers thinking of staying in Abbotsford overnight.
As with our first visit, the staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave us information about local taxis and offered to reserve one for us (because there is a rush before concerts at the arena). The staff went out of their way to give me a Coast hotel corkscrew to take with us in our travel kit. Alas – no more Globe & Mail newspaper delivered to our door, but they had free National Post papers at reception.
We were happy with our quiet room at the back of the hotel (as requested). The tube tv’s have been replaced by flat screens. The wifi was free. We walked to dinner a block or so away at Cactus Club. We then walked back to the hotel to freshen up and catch our cab. There are other restaurants even closer to the hotel.
If you are thinking of attending a concert in Abbotsford I recommend this hotel. It is not fancy, but is clean, affordable and reasonably priced.
As was the case in 2012, the breakfast is weak. That is why I am giving 4 instead of 5 stars. On the bright side, there are many breakfast options in the area. We decided to grab pastries at the Farmer’s Market.
Nice comfortable hotel. Walking distance to a good selection of restaurants. Rooms were quiet, but I was away from the road. The were only two drawbacks. There is no desk in the room I had – I dislike using the bed as a work surface. The second is that Verizon cell phone service within the hotel was poor – I had to walk out the front door to use my phone.
Very Comfortable and Convenient
We found our stay to be very comfortable and convenient for our needs. It was clean, bright and was very convenient for our needs. We were there for a family function. The location was ideal for our needs. Service was great and we found everything we needed nearby. All in all we were very happy.
very comfortable and nice rooms; very competent staff. The only drawback was that you can only set the air conditioner on on/off; there was no separate fan switch (that I often use to keep the outside/inside noise at bay). I heard trucks (?) trying to make it up the hill during the night. Breakfast was limited but the choices were excellent. I would stay here again. Their fitness facility was open at 6.00am which I really appreciated. Wifi connection was excellent/free.
great place to stay
I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and always hate to leave. Even when the hotel is full, when in your room you would not think there was anyone else staying there. You don’t hear doors slamming or toilets flushing or water running like you do in most other hotels. The rooms are always spotless and the staff can’t be beat.
