Love this location, great for business travel. The staff are very friendly and the restaurant has amazing food. Hight recommend the Nanaimo Bar Cheesecake.
Would stay here again – ask about the Dingy Dock Pub as well, fun experience.
This hotel is the nicest in Nanaimo but not quite the value you’d expect for the price. The wi-fi was unreliable and frustrating, and often cut out while I was using it. I found the front desk service polite and efficient, but transactional. But clean and nice guest rooms and great location in the older part of downtown Nanaimo.

decent stay at coast bastion
uncomfortable mattress but otherwise very clean and pleasant enough room- great staff knowledgeable about the area. convenient hotel if you are just stopping there on the way to Tofino, etc..there was a huge wedding the night we were staying there but it didn’t affect us. parking is in the public parking next door- an extra fee to pay.

Best In Nanaimo
Great downtown location and a good quality hotel. On the expensive side, but then so is everything in Nanaimo in Summer.
If you can book at a comparable price to other hotels in the city, then you won’t find better. Be careful of cheaper motel style accommodation. Some can be very basic.
