Coast Blackcomb Suites at Whistler
Studio suite was worth it all, great front desk service...
This was a great surprise for me, before and during my stay. Got this hotel via the express option of “the” bidding site, checked the reviews and was already feeling comfortable.
Before visiting, called them up to find out a place I could buy some milk in the late evening – was surprised to hear that they had a stock of it for purchase. Cool time saver!
Reached the hotel and check-in was just smooth – front desk was great. Milk was priced ok, not a ripoff as I see many a times.
The studio suite was very good, spacious enough for 3. Kitchen was good and well equipped. Sofa bed was comfortable as well. Breakfast was loaded and lots of options for veggies like us.

Worn hotel, questionable cleanliness, good service
I spent one night here with my family. Furnishings and decor-wise, it was very worn. That would be okay, if it were cleaner. It was basically “surface-clean”. When we pulled out the beds from the walls (to do our usual checks for bugs, etc.), there were lots of dust bunnies under the bed and against the wall, which makes me think that those areas aren’t cleaned regularly (and there is no protocol to do so). We even found a coin pouch underneath one of the beds, which we returned to the front desk. When we checked the mattress of the pull-out sofa, we found some really weird brown stains along the seams, so we opted for a room change, just in case. The new room seemed okay, but my husband ended up with 3 itchy bites in a line on his calf the next morning. We can’t confirm what bit him, because we didn’t see any bugs or stains or anything in this room, but the bites weren’t there the night before. No one else had any problems, but we slept on the pull-out sofa so I’m not sure if that was the reason.
The service was really great, though. The housekeeping staff and the front desk were friendly. When we asked for a room change, it was no issue at all.
There was a shuttle that ran regularly to the village, so it was quite convenient.
The breakfast buffet had a lot of variety including waffles and muffins.
Not sure if we would stay there again, but it was a good price and I guess you get what you pay for.
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!
