Coast Blackcomb Suites at Whistler
great summer deal
I don’t know why so many people are complaining about this hotel. My friend and I got a last-minute summer deal for $99/night (we booked about 5 days in advance on whistler.com) in a studio suite with kitchen, queen bed, double sofabed, and a fireplace.
Nice clean room, well-stocked kitchen, great view of trees, quiet, friendly helpful staff, lovely pool and hot tubs, and a quick and easy 10-minute hike down the ski hill to the village (or a free shuttle bus to the village running every 20 minutes from early morning til 1am).
I really appreciated the eco-friendly refillable large pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion — never seen that before in a hotel (those little plastic bottles are so wasteful). I also appreciated the healthy breakfast with lots of options, and nice large indoor dining area plus outdoor patio tables for eating (with heat lamps!).
Great place for kids even though my friend and I don’t have kids, and also great hotel if you want to bring your dog (it didn’t stink like dogs so don’t worry about that!).
I recommend this hotel, especially when there are last minute summer deals like what we got. In the winter, it would be great because you just put on your skiis, go out the back door and ski down the hill to the chair lift right at the bottom.

Assume nothing here, or the definition will apply to you.
Once they get you with reasonable room rate you are locked in. No refunds. After you call the front desk about the lack of air conditioning you’re told “None of our documentation says we have air conditioning” Well none of it says you have locks on the doors either. I am very sorry that we made a reservation here. Stuck for two days in the sweat lodge.
I was disappointed that despite paying $150 per night for this hotel there was no air conditioning in our room. There was a fan but that was hardly adequate in the heat wave of August when we stayed. We were happy to be able to bring our dog with us (included in room rate, otherwise it is an extra $35). The breakfast buffet was ok. Nothing special. They really could use some meats to go along with the offerings. At the end when we were checking out the front desk clerk tried to charge me for parking even though this was included in our room rate. No way was I paying an extra $70 for the parking for two nights. If you decide to stay here, try to find the rate that includes the parking.
4 Day getaway
Thought the hotel was a good value and is pet friendly if that is what you are looking for. For some the hotel is too far from the village, however there is a complimentary shuttle from the hotel that makes it so easy.
Lack of lounge chairs at the pool was an issue… Lack of AC was an issue, but to be fair I knew there was not any AC when we booked and they did supply 2 large fans for the room.
Free continental breakfast is always a bonus and our suite had a full kitchen should we have chosen to cook something more elaborate.
Liked having access to the BBQ although on the first night some of the guest did have confusion and did not understand that you had to book 1/2 slots. By the second night this was all straight.
Found the elevators to be a bit “BEATEN UP” looking and could use a cosmetic overhaul, but that did not make or break my stay.
We have stayed in several hotels in the Whistler resort area over the years and this hotel had everything that we personally needed.
We would go back.
Filthy, worn out, understaffed waste of $
Had stayed here many times a few years ago and was shocked at how BAD it has got. Filthy rooms, stained torn and worn linens, disgustingly nasty “complimentary” breakfast that the health department should shut down. Got scammed by the Coast site on a non-refundable booking and then put in a room in a construction zone! Plywood hallway walls, exposed electrical wiring, no carpeting, sawdust and noise. Wifi lousy – told to “stand closer to the door”(!). Will never stay here again. Such a waste, because the location is lovely.
