Coast Blackcomb Suites at Whistler
Great set of condos
The coast Blackcomb is fantastic set of cute condos set on the ski hill for ski-in and ski-out. It’s also far enough away from the main village to avoid the college kids’ Super Bowl revelry. The bus into the village is quick and there is a store in Blackcomb village.
The rooms were nice and cosy, nice kitchenette and fire place.
No room service but that’s not what this type of accommodation is about. It’s not a hotel.
Breakfast was excellent, fresh waffles, bread and toasters, cereals, eggs, fruit, muffins and juice. The breakfast can be taken up to the rooms.
Hot tub area is lovely although a little cramped.

Needs updating but fit the bill
This was our first time staying at this hotel and thought we’d give it a try as we visit Whistler every summer. Yes, the hotel definitely is a bit worn and needs updating but the staff were friendly and having a fully equipped kitchen in the room was very nice. As my husband has a disability, we were in a one-bedroom that was accessible. It was clean but not sure if that is because the room is not used as often. I was disappointed the room did not have air conditioning but I suppose the hotel was built for winter visitors and has not been fitted to accommodate summer ones despite Whistler’s push for a full year resort experience. Although the location is a bit far from the village (not really walking distance and even biking is difficult due to the steep climb to the hotel), the local bus stops right at the hotel every half hour and is free! It only took about 5 minutes to get to the village. In the summer, you can also walk down a trail on the ski hill to get to the village which would only take about 10 minutes or less. Parking at the hotel is pricey, in my opinion, for a hotel so far away from the village so we parked down the street where it was free and hopped the bus for a quick ride to pick up our car. We didn’t use the pool because it was too cold during our visit but it was a good size. Even with kitchens in the rooms, the hotel offers a free breakfast. It’s pretty standard fare but they did offer fresh fruit. My husband really liked his stay here, but I would say this is a great hotel for families on a budget (lots of kids running around). I’d wish they would put in a bit of money for updating to entice me to stay here again.
Nice hotel, BEWARE extra and hidden fees
I went up last weekend with my husband to enjoy a local music festival. We were very excited to stay at this lovely looking hotel. My first booking was completed on Expedia – we decided to book another night and extend our stay. The website distinctly says:
“Book your summer getaway deal by August 15, 2014 and save on your next stay in Whistler, BC, Canada!
Stay 2 nights & save 10%”
When I booked the lady told it would be $145 for the extra night. When we arrived the waiver I needed to sign said $161 for each night. I let the nice desk girl know that wasn’t correct and she said she would email the booking agent and review it. No one ever got back to me, and now looking at my bill it is still $161 for each night. No discount was applied, even after pointing it out and mentioning the website.
We brought our car. We were asked “do you need a parking space?” and we said yes, and got a parking space. As we left, we were informed we were being charged $23/night for our parking space. At NO POINT had we been informed that we were to be charged for parking. I mentioned this to the desk girl and she just shrugged it off and asked if no one told me when I booked on the phone. I said no, and she just ignored it. No sorry, no explanation, nothing.
Nice pool! Nice hot tubs!
Room was okay, but there was a tampon string on the wall in the bathroom when we got inside. They did promptly send someone to clean it.
Room is also a bit cramped, but awesome kitchenette and fully stocked cupboards.
No room service.
Breakfast is small, no eggs or bacon, but lots of breads, cereals, and tasty waffles!
There is a free shuttle at several hours to take you into town – it is super handy.
I would rate the hotel as average or possible very good, but due to the lies and the poor service, I have to go with Poor. We will be back to Whistler again, but unfortunately we will look for another hotel.

First and Last
Ok. So the room is old and outdated… I was told when making a reservation that we were in walking distance to the village… Unless you want to walk 45 minutes uphill… Go for it. There is no air conditioning… They have fans. The bedroom window does not open enough to get a breeze… The wifi is horrible. You can only connect one device and it cuts in and out. The front desk will direct your call to get this fixed… Still only one device can connect. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. You can get a much better deal in the village with nicer accommodations. The pool is nice. Although seeing a couple of guys sitting in the hot tub with a case of beer was a bit inappropriate… Seeing that there were kids in the hot tub too. I am currently laying on my uncomfortable bed typing this… I must be off.. With no wifi, this could get expensive.
