Coast Abbotsford Hotel & Suites
Great service and location
I’ve been to many hotels and the most important part for me is seeing a pleasant smile from the front desk. The girl at the front, Dina, did a great job when I arrived and was always greeting guests as they passed the desk. The location is also ideal because it is close to the highway and beside the Old Spaghetti Factory and Boston Pizza. Although the hotel is a little older, the rooms are well maintained and look like they are recently renovated. I will for sure stay here again next time I travel to the area.
We were in Abbotsford for a hockey tourney and a shopping trip in Bellingham trip. Close to great restaurants (Me n Ed’s Pizza awesome) Close access to the Sumas border. Quick onto the freeway to the rinks.
Coast is my hotel of choice...
I have stayed at this hotel on business a number of times. Pro’s: always a clean, nice sized room. Staff are friendly and helpful. Parking is plentiful. Very central and close to a number of restaurant options. I have not had a bad sleep in this hotel. Con’s: breakfast isn’t really breakfast. There is coffee and a few muffin options but that’s it. Coast Hotels are offering 500 Alaska Airline miles for each night you stay and if you have this credit card, this is an amazing deal.
Perfectly Acceptable for the price.
We needed a basic place for a quick one night stay in Abbotsford for a family event, and for what we paid, we got exactly what we expected. Pro’s: very comfy bed, room was clean, dark and quiet, there was a mini fridge in the room, water pressure in the shower was super, wifi worked well.
Cons: very uncomfortable pillows, very scratchy low-quality towels, we don’t eat breakfast but if we did the only options at the “free continental breakfast” were cheap looking starch based items (oh, and some fruit). Don’t advertise free breakfast if there are no protein options.
The hotel is right off the highway and there are many restaurants and a shopping complex nearby. Front desk person was friendly.
If we needed to make another quick trip to Abbotsford we would stay here again.
I would have rated this “good” if there was such an option.

$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.
