My stay at the Coast Inn of the North
I always enjoy my stay at the Coast Inn of the North. The staff are very courteous and friendly; the Dining room is nice and food is good; I feel safe in this hotel so sleep good and am all rested up for the next day.
Great place to stay
The hotel hosted many of the delegates from the Inclusion B.C. IGNITE 2016 conference. The location couldn’t have been better, as it was directly adjacent to the Prince George Civic Centre, where most of the conference was held. It is also across the street from White Spot and Tim Horton’s, which are good places for meals. It’s in walking distance of a shopping centre, a movie theatre and a bowling alley. The hotel service was excellent, and I had bottles of water and chocolates left in my room every night. My only complaints are the absence of a microwave oven in my room, and the fact that a jackhammer started right outside my window at 6:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning. The wifi was very strong (I was able to pick it up in the White Spot across the street) but I’d have preferred that it not get disconnected every time my computer was idle. I like the swimming pool but it is very shallow.
We received a warm welcome on check in and reception staff were very helpful. We stayed in a king size suite which was very nicely decorated with modern colours and furniture. The bathroom had a walk in shower and, again, was well equipped and modern. We had a balcony but I was rather puzzled as to why there was no furniture. Surely the point of a balcony is to sit out. My only other negative comment relates to a lack of mirror in the bedroom, which would have been helpful. There was only one in the bathroom. However, we found this to be a very nice, comfortable hotel.
This hotel was overpriced compared to others (stayed at Ramada next night) the room didn’t even have a coffee maker. No breakfast but they had a rate that gave you a voucher. The location was good close restaurants you can get to by walking
Great overall stay
Our experience at the Shogun restaurant was average – for example the salad was old not something I expect from a Japanese restaurant where the cuisine is normally associated with freshness
