Needed a hotel for the night and my usual go-to’s were all booked due to World Cup soccer. The Coast came up as pet friendly, they had a room and it was close to the ferry. It was a little more than I wanted to pay but they offered AMA discount and it was a huge room. Chris on the front desk was very friendly and provided a map to a local off leash park that was just a short drive away. The hotel also provided dog gift bags with bags, treats and a bowl which was great because I had forgotten ours. The continental breakfast was good and a young woman was constantly restocking and moving dishes as it was extremely busy with a bus group.
well we needed a room in an emergency and we asked what the cheapest room,was,we were told they all start at $170 so we took the room,nice but a very long walk with 2 kids in tow and a dog.then they wanted $$ for the dog,in my case I would have disputed it because most dogs are cleaner then children and much quieter but like I said it was an emergency,then they wanted to hold extra $100 for damage deposit,but then in morning for breakfast the continental breakfast was way too basic.
Food left in the fridge, hair in the tub, brightly lit Coastal Tsawwassen sign right out the window, and they charged my personal credit card without asking me, rather than use the company credit card that was used to book the room.
We stayed here w/our daughter & her 2 children enroute to YVR. The folks @ the desk were very friendly & efficient & our suite was sufficient for our needs. The bonuses came w/breakfast included (not expected), a 10% discount @ the restaurant sharing the building, Brown’s Social House (also not expected) & the indoor pool, which our granddaughter loved. The breakfast was what you would expect from this level, but good nonetheless. The best part was that it wasn’t tucked away in a windowless basement or some such place. It is in the lobby – bright & airy. Another nice aspect was the underground parking, which has been noted is not secure, but it is sheltered – a good thing on the “Wet Coast”!
Negatives: it does need new carpeting, especially in the halls & the hide-a-bed sofa! Brutal, but then again, who has one of these that is truly comfortable & didn’t cost the equivalent of a trip to outer space?
Hint: allow much more time than you think you need to get to YVR. Traffic is funneled from about 5 lanes to 2 – possibly 1 – into the tunnel. It took us 1:40 from parking lot to check-in counter – about 20 kms @ 11:00am on a Friday!
good location, needs a little updating on the decor, parking lot should be more secure as I was traveling by myself and coming back late at night. The breakfast bar could have a bit more fresh goods. pre-packed pastries??
