Coast Vancouver Airport Hotel
Pet policy $$$
This may not count as an actual review as I decided not to overnight here based on the pet fees. I am glad I called to confirm pets policy before booking a non refundable room.
The charge is $20.00 per pet per night. The person I spoke with did not seem to offer any flexibility in price for me traveling with 3 tiny dogs and I asked why it should cost more to shut down and clean a room with under 30 lbs of dog total than it would for a 75 lb single dog? The room cleaning is the same.
I travel a great deal with dogs. I rarely pay for more than one dog/night and I have no problem with a deposit for any extra work that may be required. Of course the hotel is free to charge as it wishes, but in mind these high fees are actually to deter pets and not welcome them so it is not ‘really” a pet friendly hotel.

Pretty Decent for the location near YVR & price.
Had an early flight from YVR and this hotel filled the requirements.
It’s 6 minutes away from YVR and it’s not new.
My wife is a clean freak and it was up to her standards which means it is clean.
The whole hotel is non-smoking so there are people from the hotel and the pub standing outside in the cold. They advise everyone to remove valuables from the car park so I would take it seriously.
The staff at check-in were super, very helpful and efficient. Gave an excellent recommendation for supper and were spot-on in their choice.
We will stay here again.
The business center was minimalist as it only has two computers, one of which didn’t work. The wifi worked and the connection was good.
Wouldn't want to stay here more than one night.
We stayed here on a layover to our final destination. We tried to use the shuttle but were told we would have to wait for the next one. A group bumped us out of our spot. A little disappointing as it was late and we had children that needed to get to bed. We ended up getting a taxi.
The late night desk clerk was very friendly though. The rooms were okay. It seemed a bit rundown. And the beds are only doubles, which made for an uncomfortable sleep for two adults to share.
We did use the shuttle on our way to the airport the next day with great success.
Great place for an airport stopover
Telephoned for a pickup from YVR and it arrived promptly.
The room was great. Clean and well laid out.
All the hotel staff were really helpful.
There is a good restaurant in the hotel and a pub by the entrance.
Will stay again
If you want frills go somewhere else
I stayed with my stepmom one night while she was in town on her way to Honolulu. She had a standard room with two queen beds for $110, which I suppose is a deal for Vancouver but I stayed in a hotel in Toronto for the same price in May that far eclipsed this hotel in every regard. You could walk or drive right by the hotel without noticing, and if you do there is nothing to indicate the building is a hotel. There is a back entrance is obscured by the parking lot with a small sign that declares it the Hotel Entrance. There are a few steps down into this entrance so it’s better to enter through the front if you have heavy suitcases. This entrance, however, is closest to the elevators.
Room was mostly clean and beds updated and comfortable but the rest was the same as when she stayed there in the 80′s, including the ancient tv with limited channels. We wanted to stay in for dinner but discovered we could order but someone had to go down to get it which meant actually exiting the hotel to pick up at adjacent restaurant. Cutlery was plastic (a tough go for a steak sandwich) and we had no condiments for our food. There was no mini fridge to stow what we couldn’t eat which means of course there was no mini-bar. We discovered the next day that if we had ordered from the White Spot downstairs we could have had room delivery.
The hotel participates in house recycling called “ecoast” so apparently they observe this by not taking towels every day and using disposable coffee cups and guests are invited to take amenity products with them. The to-go containers used by Hudsons Landing were recyclable. Aside from that there doesn’t seem to be too much within immediate walking distance for dining out. A short cab ride away, about a km away, there is a selection of restaurants to choose from. Coffee and tea are available in the room, one regular and one decaf, 2 tazo teas and a few horrible artificial creamers. A trip down to the lobby coffee pot didn’t net any real cream either.
There isn’t much to do in the area and no scenery to speak of, so I suppose the hotel serves best as a bed close to the airport and nothing more.
