Coast Tsawwassen Inn
Every Room is a Suite
A good solid 3 1/2 star hotel, great staff where every room is a suite. Easy to find in downtown Tsawwassen with a good restaurant on site (Brown’s Social House) and lots of good restuarants within a 10 to 15 minute walk. A short drive to the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal for those that are going onto Vancouver Island.
We had a long drive ahead of us and decided to get off Vancouver Island in the evening so we could hit the road early the next morning. We drove up the Ferry causeway and turned up the main street into Tsawwassen. A few blocks later we saw the hotel’s sign so stopped to have a look and are we glad we did.
We walked into a lovely lobby where the reception desk was staffed by two very friendly, courteous staff members. They quickly had us booked in, showed us where the restaurant was, and explained where the best parking was to get closest to our room. The underground parking is spacious, safe, and locked overnight.
Our ‘room’ turned out to be a large living room with a counter that had a microwave, and coffee maker near a nice table and chairs, as well as a sofa, coffee table, and large TV. The hallway had a vanity sink area outside of the bathroom, and across was a large closet with ample hangers.
The bedroom was very spacious with a great bed and another large TV. We had a view of the street but did not notice any noise through the night. This was just a stopover for us but I think we would have been happy to stay a couple of nights and explore that area of Vancouver. However, if you miss the last ferry to the Island this is a great, reasonable spot to get a good night’s sleep.
We arrived tired and weary after travelling all day from England and were greeted by a very friendly gentleman on reception. We were ‘special guest of the day’ and had been upgraded to a suite and received a complimentary gift bag. The suite was huge, with a massive corner bath and separate shower, plus fully equiped kitchen , comfy chairs and a balcony where we sat watching the sun go down. The suite was lovely and clean. Would highly recommend this place and I’m so pleased we booked it for our first night in Canada.

exactly as expected
once again the coast lives up to it’s reputation in my experience. Great staff, clean room with comfortable bed, Brown’s Social house had great food and service and its location was perfect. I mostly stay when on business so the price is irrelevant.
You're not here on holiday!
I would guess that a good proportion of those staying at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn likely couldn’t make a ferry connection to Vancouver Island or the Gulf Islands. Under those circumstances what’s important after a long day on the road, a clean comfortable room at a reasonable price. The Coast Tsawwassen fits that bill admirably. What’s nice about this establishment is that they recognize the need they fill and do it without pretension. Make no mistake this is no memorable hotel experience, the facility is starting to look a bit dated and the decor is typically large hotel chain but on balance you feel you’re receiving fair value.
