Coast Inn of the North
date night stay-cation
the newly renovated rooms are nice, but very cold in winter. The 1/2 shower door is great, if you are a size 2 and can stay closer to the shower head, but a romantic shower for 2, leaves water spraying all over the bathroom floor, not very well thought our for couples. They to be awoken @ 5:30am by the fire alarm, that went on for over 20 minutes, then off again 2 hours later, left sleeping in ruined. The room service was very slow, and the breakfast arrived luke warm at best. When bringing these issues to then attention of the front desk attendant, Derek, it was meat with a shrug and an 1/2 attempted apology, but nothing else. When paying for a superior King room, even though NOT a 5 star property, I would have expected better. Excited for newer properties to appear in PG to enjoy without incident……kinda ruins the romance!

bday night in August
booked a balcony room; it was fresh and nicely redone…..highly recommend this stay to anyone wanting a little special space. The bathroom was very modern and glamorous; with room for two in the nice long tub. Bed was extremely comfortable and there was lounging room with couch, table and seating area for watching tv…….was over all a great room!!!
very good experience
I stayed with my family. Our over all stay was pleasant. We love the high speed internet specially my 2 teenagers. The room was clean and decor is not much of my concern actually. The extra pillows was appreciated a lot. The bathroom is nice and clean however we were not comfortable with the swing door at the shower area. This hotel is concerned with the environment by providing eco-friendly soaps, shampoos, hair conditioners and body wash. Beds were comfortable. Lastly, but not the least, from housekeeping to front desk staff were all nice and accommodating, very good customer service skills.
nice but still lacking
i originally had a corner suite and was checked in promptly. it was a fairly long day and phoned for room service. was told by the room service attendant that the shogun does do room service, was rudely told no they do not. phoned the front desk and enquired about this. was told by ashley she was not sure but none the less she was polite and courteous about it. i love the new colours and the decor and it has come a long way from the old dated interiors of the past. The rooms are modern and fresh which is nice. So after the room service screw up i went to use the washroom to freshen up to go out. lifted the toilet seat and it was full of some pink liquid and long hairs. so i phoned down again and ashley was ever so accommodating. she upgraded me to the presidential suite which was appreciated and very nicely done up in the same new funky colours. the only down side is that the room was really really noisy. the fan would not shut down which made for a less than enjoyable sleep.
would repeat as the staff was friendly and courteous, and the overall updates to the hotel make the stay worth while. next maybe they will update the pool and fitness area.
You will be disappointed
I checked in at 5:15 pm with a reservation and was told my room was not ready yet and I should come back in one hour. I then watched 4 people check in and get their rooms. When I asked why they got rooms and I didn’t they told me they had booked a different type of room. At 6:24 pm I finally got my room. The issue was they did not have enough cleaning staff. Interesting to see the hotel general manager left the hotel staff with this mess, maybe he should have stayed and helped the staff clean the rooms. I went for dinner and came back at 9 pm and people were still waiting for their room! Although the staff did their best (thanks Joe) this hotel is poorly run. Only one elevator was working. Their is a Ramada in town. I will stay there next time.
