Coast Inn of the North
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.

We stayed in room 601. I was initially concerned as we were right by the elevator, however the noise level was minimal in the room – we sleep really well.The bed was very comfortable and I loved having 6 pillows. The decor was not really to my taste however the upgrades to the room were clean, crisp and well done compared to other hotels I have stayed at in Prince George. It was also a bonus having a balcony in this room.
My only complaint would be the shower. It is one of those half door styles and water tends to get all over the floor of the bathroom. It was also a fairly small bathroom with room for only one person at a time. The finishes were well done compared to other hotels I have stayed in with recent upgrades, and I was very happy with the spaciousness of our suite.It was also very clean, one of the cleanest places I have stayed at so far.
Very friendly staff and quick check in and check out.
We enjoyed the Shogun Restaurant very much. Excellent food, friendly service. The liquor store in the lobby was a great feature, to grab a few beers or a bottle of wine to take back to the room.
If I had the option of giving it an extra half star my overall rating would be 4 1/2 stars. Just ask for an upgraded room.
It’s been 18 months since I stayed at the Coast. The new room upgrades are fantastic! Good HDTV. Lots of handy plugs for gadgets. Really nice bathroom. Well appointed decor and furnishings. The staff always fabulous
PG places to Stay
Melissa the desk clerk was extraordinarily helpful. We had no problem checking in and changing a reservation, when one of the parties was unable to make it. Great customer service. Clean rooms. Looks newly renovated but odd bathroom door. Would stay here again.
