Coast Inn of the North
Comfortable hotel - newly remodeled room
In town to watch the Spruce Kings play so location was perfect. Hotel room was comfortable and the staff was helpful and friendly so worth my recommendation. Could hear our neighbors in the next room but nit any worse than any other typical hotel room.

It's an average hotel, especially for a Coast.
Downtown PG with decent access to restaurants, etc. Can be loud because of where it is and a bit sketchy at night.
The rooms are not as nice (beds not as comfortable, drapes do not cover the entire window, very loud from neighboring rooms and the hallway) as any other Coast hotel I have been in.
Staff were nice and checking in and out was quick. It’s OK but some associates stayed at the Sandman Signature in PG, and they paid less than I did (I paid $149 and then $159 for each night, they paid $140) and had full suites that were brand-new. I’ll stay somewhere else next time.
Clean and quiet
Stayed three nights in this hotel. Although a bit dated, the place was very clean. Towels and linens quite new. The king size bed was very comfy! The hotel was full but very quiet. Security walks the hotel, so safe also. Going back.
Northern BC residents take advantage of great rates
The Coast Inn if the North has a great rate for Northern BC residents. This makes this hotel great value for the money. The renovations are lovely and modern and the facilities are great. I also love the Coffee Garden restaurant and the convenient downtown location.
Allow me to preface this review by stating that I have stayed at this hotel easily more than one hundred times since 2007 when I stayed at the hotel 3 nights per week (ever week) while attending UNBC, on business trips, and personal vacation time.
I stayed at the hotel this past Tuesday night in the “Premium Jacuzzi Junior Suite”.
As always all of the hotel staff are warm, welcoming, and very helpful. The hotel location is central to food and shopping. And most importantly, I always feel very safe staying here, particularly because I do a great deal of solo travel.
I was absolutely thrilled with the recent renovations. The décor and furnishings are modern, clean, and comfortable. The room is spacious and had all of the amenities that I desired (mini-fridge, hairdryer, coffee/tea, a safe, loads of lush towels, in-room movies, balcony, work desk, sitting area, etc.)
The extra deep soaker tub is a wonderful upgrade to the old Jacuzzi tubs that previously furnished these rooms, and I thoroughly enjoyed a long hot soak after my 7 hour drive to PG. The only downside to the location of the soaker tub is that it is separated from the rest of the room by a half pony-wall, which means that I was not able to enjoy my in-room movie while enjoying a long soak, which I was previously able to do before the renovated floor plan. (Please consider placing a TV on the pony-wall.)
The bed was very comfortable with very nice crisp cotton bedding. Unfortunately, I was unable to enjoy a good night’s sleep. While I had reserved a “quiet” room, the location of my room was central to a trifecta of housekeeping’s supply closet, the pop and ice machine, and a very active and noisy maintenance/staff stairwell. I was awoken shortly after 6:00am with all of the staff activity that carried on while housekeeping began work for the day. There was also a barking dog in the room either beside or below me, which was very annoying (and surprising). Needless to say, I was not well rested for the day ahead and the 7 hour drive home that evening due to the ongoing noise issues.
I did not complain about the issues with my stay this time given my previous experience with management where I have essentially been told ‘sorry about your luck’; therefore, I opt to save my time and energy dealing directly with management if there is no remedy offered anyway.
