Coast Inn of the North
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.
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.
