Coast Inn of the North
Good Option for Business
I recently had the opportunity to travel to Prince George for business, so booked in for a four night stay. I liked the fact that the Coast Inn is centrally located downtown, and an easy walk to some of the pubs in the area.
When I opened the door to my King junior suite, I was impressed with the amount of space that greeted me. The decor was clearly updated, with a nicely appointed washroom with a good sized shower area with glass enclosure. The suite had a lounging area with couch and chair, but the bed was nicely done with a soft headboard and enough pillows to build a fort with
The room was clean, well appointed, power points were readily available to plug in devices, and I had no issues connecting to, or using the available wifi.
I had the opportunity to eat downstairs at the Shogun one evening, and overall found the experience pleasant, but perhaps a bit pricey.
I also took the time to use the fitness facility. Machines are older, but quite usable.
Things I liked best about the hotel were:
Location. PG is pretty easy to get around, and it wasn’t a long drive to/from the airport.
Staff. Super welcoming and friendly
Room: Comfortable place to prepare for the following day, get rested up
Turndown Service: It was nice to come back at the end of the day to find a bottle of water, and a couple of chocolates waiting along with the bed all ready to climb into
Things I liked least about the hotel were:
One of the elevators was down for maintenance, so it meant longer than normal wait times for a car. Not a big deal
Location downtown did mean being cognizant of surroundings when venturing out at night on foot. It’s not super-scary, but just use common-sense.
A menu for Shogun in the room would have been nice, but again, not a big deal
To wrap it up, I would certainly recommend the Coast Inn for business travel based on the renovated accomodations.
Good bed for a good night's sleep
The room was an average room, with the usual amenities. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. One elevator was out of service, so I got my activity hiking to and from the sixth floor. The front desk provided friendly and prompt service.
New renovation, but still needs improving and more attention to hotel systems.
Poor heating systems. Parking lot not updated and still uncovered. Renovation done was a poor mask on top of a old hotel that needed a renovation for a long time. Many improvements could still be made. Not worth the price of rooms.
Our last stay in this hotel was about 5 years ago and we were pleasantly surprised with the renovations that have been done since. We booked a basic comfort room, but on arrival were upgraded to a premium corner suite which was very nice. The room was huge, with a balcony on one side and two large windows on the adjacent wall, making for lots of light. There were 2 comfortable queen beds with lots of pillows and comfy duvets – although the sheets were clean and crisp, they were slightly rough. There was a large sectional plus another easy chair, so plenty of room to spread out. The bathroom was nice, but not that well planned. The walk in shower was good looking and once you were in it was a pleasant experience…it was not pleasant to start the shower however as you must stand IN the shower to reach the controls, meaning a face full of water when you turned it on! I also counted 3 power bars in use, so the electrical upgrades also didn’t seem very well planned. We needed a microwave and that was brought up immediately by a nice maintenance man. The front desk lady was very nice as well. We will return.
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!!!
