Coast Tsawwassen Inn
an OK place to stay
We have just returned from a 7 night stay at the Coast Tsawwassen Hotel. We were in town for a family wedding and decided to make a weeks vacation. I had booked this hotel quite a while ago, either late April or early May. We were offered a “long stay” rate which was a little lower per night than the regular rate. However no one explained to me that the reduced rate was with reduced services. The maid did not make the bed, except for the 2 days the sheets were to be changed. We stayed Wednesday to Wednesday and the sheets were changed on Friday and again Tuesday. We got fresh towels daily, however the sink/ tub/ toilet were not wiped daily. I believe the unit was not vacuumed either. I spoke to the front desk re this, and was told about the reduced rate meant fewer services. It would have been nice to expect that rather than stressing about it.
The suite was adequate although showing its age, there was a chip in the coffee table top, and the colours etc are not modern but dull beige and brown. It is a nice touch to have the microwave and mini fridge, we made use of the fridge but didn’t use the microwave. It was nice to have a coffee maker, however the little packets of napkin, 2 sugar and 1 powdered whitener were not enough. We bought cream to keep in the fridge.
The bathtub is very small, and the water flow from the shower was a slow stream. The hot water was very hot if you waited long enough.
The free WIFI was Ok if you were in the sitting area of the suite, but was non existent in the sleeping area.
the continental breakfast was the best of any hotel we’ve stayed at, lots of fresh fruit, different bread products, good coffee, cottage cheese and yoghurt, along with some sort of egg and cheese sandwich on an English muffin. There are trays provided as well so you can take your breakfast back to your room if desired.
We didn’t use the pool or the gym facilities, but they seemed OK.
Would I return?? Likely as we have family in Tsawwassen within walking distance of the hotel, and there really isn’t anywhere else in the town.
Is it good value for the money?? The excellent breakfast makes up for the tired rooms, so yes if you can get a good rate. The offer a few discounts, long stay, good neighbour and a wedding discount. So ask for one of them.
Good Quality and Comfortable
We stayed there from August 20-27th, we were coming for the wedding of our Godson. We received a weekly rate, included was their continental breakfast, use of the exercise room, pool and underground parking. My husband used the exercise room daily.
This hotel is older, but certainly clean and well maintained. The continental breakfast, was certainly more than we expected. There were a variety of juices, tea, Starbucks coffee, there was an assortment of breads, muffins, waffles, fresh fruit, cottage cheese and yogurt. It is open four hours each day, 0600-1000, weekdays, 0630-1030, weekends.
Our suite had a living room with TV, bar frig, microwave, and coffee maker, Starbucks coffee too. Queen bed, ample dresser and night tables with lamps, and TV. There was a good sized closet, with full length mirror as well. Nice bath amenities too! The only suggestion we would make, would be the availability of a safe in the room. We travel frequently and it’s handy for your electronics, passports and cash.
Browns Social House is attached, we ate two dinners and a lunch there. Good selection, ample portions, reasonable, friendly staff and very convenient. The hotel provided a 10% discount daily, so that was a nice bonus.
All in all we enjoyed our stay, a beautiful wedding for sure, close proximity to our Godson, we also had the time to do some sight seeing as it was our first trip to the Vancouver area. We would certainly recommend the Coast Tsawwassen Inn.
Stayed the night before catching ferry to victoria. Our suite was great 2 tvs,nice and clean,pet friendly even got a free pet bowl and cookies for her. Only a things to know the water for bath takes a long time to fill and shower is small and no room service. This hotel also has a great continental breakfast. At $150 a night was great. I would stay again and restaurant was awesome try key lime pie.
Construction near the hotel
We stayed at the Coast Tsawwassen in August 2011, and were quite happy with our accommodations. We booked a room there from August 7-9, 2014. We were not told about the massive construction project that was going on right beside the hotel.
Of all the rooms in the hotel, we were given the absolute worst room: 344. Our balcony and bedroom overlooked the construction site. We were unable to use our balcony and if you wanted to take an afternoon nap, forget about it. The construction noise was terrible.
We asked to have our room changed and were told that the hotel was completely booked up. From the lack of cars in the parking lot, and the relatively few people we saw at breakfast, I do not believe for a moment that the hotel was fully booked.
As a repeat customer, I would have expected better treatment. This could be our last visit to the Coast Tsawwassen Inn. We are very disappointed that management could not provide us with an alternate room.
Perfect Hotel for Family with Kids.
We had a wonderful experience, stayed three nights. Nice specious room, with microwave and fridge was perfect for long stay.Excellent and friendly staff. Enjoyed free continental breakfast.
Convenient location-easy access to highways. Close to beach, and US boarder.
Thanks to the staff and the management for making our stay a memorable one.
We would stay again at this hotel in future.
