Coast Bastion Hotel
Loved the room
We stayed in room 1111 (Premium King Ocean view) and we were not disappointed. The room was extremely clean, large and comfortable. We had to get a printout from a computer and the concierge was very helpful in setting us up in the business centre. We would definitely stay again. Great location close to the waterfront and shopping.
This is an old hotel, but they put a lot of love and effort in it. It is comfortable, clean, updated and well designed. The location is fantastic, we had a room with harbour view.
It really meets the modern standard and my expectations of a Coast Hotel.
The room was nicely designed for use, with a good seating area near the windows and balcony to enjoy watching the marina and port. The bed had lovely soft pillows, and everything was very clean and well-maintained in the room and bathroom.
well situated but noisy
We stayed for one night. Thank goodness it wasn’t more! A wedding party was staying and the noise all round the hotel was unacceptable. Also, wherever you stay in the hotel, you get noise from the air conditioning units of a hotel opposite OR on the other side of the hotel you get the noise from the hotel’s own air con units. We actually looked at 3 different rooms to check the noise level before settling on the one that had the least noise. In fairness, the receptionist was very good at trying to find us an alternative, especially when he heard the noise from the wedding party guests himself and he gave us a small discount for the inconvenience. We ate in the restaurant and the food was basic but quite good and reasonably priced. We definitely would not stay there again even though the location is excellent.
The perfect fit
On a road trip up the Vancouver Island and wanted to stop in Nanaimo to visit friends and family that were traveling by boat. We had never been here before and had no idea where the marina would be. Made our reservations over the internet using Tripadvisor and picked this hotel. It was a perfect fit. The hotel was beautiful, the room was great and overlooked the bay. Turned out the marina was across the street and we were 5 minutes from the boat dock. The hotel staff were incredible and very, very helpful. If you’re traveling to Nanaimo, this is the place to stay.
