Renovated Rooms are Beautiful
I stayed for one night and had a fabulous experience. Although the front desk lady was on the phone when I walked in, she caught my eye and smiled…when she hung up a few seconds later she was welcoming, friendly and efficient. She put me in a newly-renovated room on the 6th floor and I thought the furniture and colours were beautifully coordinated. I’d had a long day and maybe that was the reason the bed felt so comfortable–it was a pillow top mattress and for me, it was “just right.” My room service breakfast the following morning arrived on time and the way I’d ordered it–a pleasant surprise since even at 5-star hotels, this rarely happens. A good value as well. The only detractions were the bathroom fan (noisy) and the pillows were not that great (although there were a lot of them, which I appreciated). Otherwise, a delightful stay! I’ll be back!

Newly Renovated Hotel A Northern Gem
The Coast Inn of the North is located within the downtown core with easy access to the business district and the Convention center. The comfortable and clean rooms have been completely renovated. This Hotel has an evening lounge and two full service restaurants. Other eateries are within walking distance from the Hotel. In room internet can be problematic as well as in the conference rooms. The regular rooms are well appointed and reasonably spacious. The junior suites are quite large and provide significant value for the dollar. All suites have a balcony. The staff are friendly and helpful. The private liquor store is a new addition to the Hotel and a welcome convenience. Overall this Hotel provides excellent value for both personal and business stays.

Me and my girlfriend have stayed here a couple times now and both stays we really enjoyed it. Great feature is 24 hour room service! Very awesome how there is a liquor store right in the building. The restaurants are very delicious too. Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
Won't be back..
I’d stayed in the hotel before and enjoyed my stay, and I should have booked the same room (a pet-freindly twin double bed room), but it being my anniversary I splurged and got the “superior” king room.. Big mistake.. We were told on reserving the room that it was a renovated room with a tub/shower (which we prefer over shower only), but it wasn’t, and you’d think for $179 in the winter you’d get a decent bathroom, but it was small and grungy, besides (chipped enamel tub, which had been messily repaired, grout work going black in a number of places). The A/C – furnace very noisy, The 32″ TV was the smallest I’ve ever seen, we had to scootch the sofa closer to compensate, at which point we discovered empty water bottles and old popcorn all over the floor (fair enough?). We were also less than pleased listening to the elevator from 6am onwards (the room is directly beside it), the userous pay per view prices (still in theaters? Really??). We also didn’t appreciate having to get out of the ‘hot’ tub (downstairs beside the pool) every 5 minutes to push that stupid button on the wall (they have a sign up ‘ don’t stay in whirlpool more than 5 minutes’ like they’re concerned with your health, not their energy costs.. Give us a 10 minutes repreive, at least! Maybe if it was 3-4 degrees hotter in there 5 minutes would be enough, but as it’s barely luke-warm.. Also, the black-out curtains in the room didn’t extend to cover the sides, letting in alot of light. Room supposed to include bottled water, and didn’t. I’m pretty sure this was my last stay, here.

Cold night in Prince George
A dissapointing business trip all around…
I typically stay at the Coast Inn of the North when I visit Prince George. Only one other time when they were booked up did I stay at another location. On this visit I booked a suite room in order to have space to meet with some people. The first issue was the wifi… It didn’t reach the desk location in the room. I had to take my computer to the bedroom corner to get online. Inconvenient. Next, while I was waiting I tried the TV to watch the news, remote didn’t work. Ok, grabbed the bedroom remote and It did the trick. Dead batteries happen but things are not going well here. After my meeting one of the associates commented on how cold my room was. I had not taken my jacket off and was wearing my cap still. Yes, it was cool in there. I turned the heat up and went out for dinner. On my return, I had a chill and the room wasn’t warm yet so I went down to the Jacuzzi. It was barely bathwater warm and the jets stay on for about 1 min. Disappointed I finally found heat in the sauna. I wont lie that I wasn’t waiting for it to break too. I went back to the room and it was still cool. I cranked the heat all the way and went to bed. In the morning, the bedroom was barely warm (I thing the heated bathroom floor was heating the bedroom) but the living area of the suit was freezing. I was happy to be heading home!
