Coast Blackcomb Suites at Whistler
Coast Never Disappoints
I have yet to stay in a Coast hotel that didn’t leave me thrilled, and this was no different. We stayed in the one bedroom condo for a weekend trip and couldn’t have loved it more. The balcony and fireplace were both a big hit. Staff friendly and helpful as always. The full kitchen was also great. Room was of course clean as well as washroom.
We stayed at the Coast 2 nights starting Sept.28. Not many guests while we were there. The room was dated, but comfortable. I have to agree with previous posts about the room being quite warm even though the heat was turned down to zero. If it had been summer this would have been a major issue. The free breakfast was as expected, average, as we read the reviews prior to booking. We booked because of the deal. $98.00 per night including breakfast and parking Great Value as far as I’m concerned.
We had a great stay out if season at the end of September. The price was excellent. 3 adults in a studio was very comfortable and we all had plenty of space.
Kitchen was well equipped, bathroom was very nice and the lounge / diner very spacious. Wifi was good and breakfast was fine. I can imagine this would make a great base for a ski holiday although I’m not sure we’d be able to afford it then!

Good location in Winter, less so in Summer
We stayed Sept 26 & 27 and while the location was clearly excellent for winter (ski in, ski out) it’s not ideal in summer. You can drive or take the free Whistler Public Transit bus to the Village (not avail before 10am). If the weather is decent you can also walk down (or up) to/from the Blackcomb Village down the ski run.
The hotel itself is typical Whistler “lodge” style, lots of big timbers and rock features. Rooms are spacious if a bit “dated”. Our studio was large, full kitchen, with small balcony. Strangely the thermostat was set to zero (off) yet the room was always sweltering hot. Could not find a means to turn off the heat so we used the big, old, and LOUD fan provided.
Breakfast is included, it’s continental and average quality. Only hot item is waffles made by the breakfast attendant. She also clears dishes etc. so waffles are hit and miss (either a line up or not avail). Cereal, fruit, yoghurt, cold hard boiled eggs, breakfast breads (bagels, toast, etc.) and muffins round out the offering.
A decent hotel, but if you’re coming up in summer I’d look for a similar priced option in the Village. Far less hassle getting to/from your hotel.
Quiet, comfortable and reasonably priced
We booked here straight from the excellent Coast hotel in Kamloops and we weren’t disappointed. The hotel is furthest up the mountain so no passing traffic or pedestrians. Secure underground parking so we left the car and used the free bus service to / from the main village. Reception very smooth and room excellent. At the rear looking onto the trees. Continental breakfast was good but the dining area in the lobby needs upgraded. The floor covering and tables have lived a full and useful life but need replaced. We didn’t use the outdoor pool and hot tub because of the rain but many others did. We paid C$130 per night + C$19 parking so it was great value. Two great Coast Hotels led us to book a third at Vancouver airport which was a HUGE mistake.
