Coast Wenatchee Center Hotel
A trip to Wenatchee
What a great place to stay. We were greeted at the door by the manager who got checked in very quickly. We are dog herders and have three small dogs. Cost for the dogs for two nights was $10.00 a one time charge total for the dogs for two nights $10.00. How nice is that. We had problems with the heat in the first room and was moved to the room next door very quickly, no issues and compensated for the inconvenience. The staff is very nice, gave us treats for the pups and was very happy to see us. They had wine tasting at the rooftop bar and a great happy hour. If you are going to Wenatchee and want to hike or ski, stay at this Hotel. Prices are good, the hotel restaurant is good and the staff are great. Best of all the rooms are clean and well maintained.

Nice hotel in a good location
There is a skybridge to the Convention Center, so if you are attending an event there this is a good place to stay. A little old, but that is not a problem. A nice restaurant with a fireplace on the top floor gives you a great view of the Columbia River.
For the ladies, there is a fascinating decorating store viewable from the skybridge. Once can walk there from the hotel as it is on the next block south. Worth a vist.

If you are in wenatchee this is a good place to be!
I came here for a convention along with a co-worker. The room was very clean and up to date. It had all the amenities of a regular room (coffee, tv, mini fridge). I would recommend it and stay again. Upstairs there is a restaurant where we had breakfast which was just ok.
Great staff, pet friendly and great location...!
We frequent the Coast Wenatchee — LOVE the staff, love the River Top Grill, LOVE the pet friendly environment — GREAT location (and close to all the cute shops, eateries, etc…!) — always clean, fresh coffee in the lobby and a nice fire going in the winter — so welcoming to arrive *home* the this hotel every time…! A true *home away from home*…!

Great location and value. We'll be back!
For the record, we have no affiliation with the Coast Hotel and are NOT giving this review at anyone’s request.
Being 60 year-olds, we’ve been around. ; ) And we wanted to do something a little different than fight the crowds, traffic and prices in Seattle during New Year’s. So, we took our money to Wenatchee for a 3-day, 2-night discovery. Several hotels offered a special Mission Ridge ski package which included a lift ticket/guest/night ($50 value each) plus a shuttle bus to and from the ski area. But the Coast Hotel was within “crawling distance” of some cool spots downtown, and within easy walking to the Pybus Market, Riverside Trail, fun shops and bars/restaurants, PLUS the breakfast entrees were included!. We also knew that the Coast Hotel was an older hotel that had been updated. SOLD!!!!!
We enjoyed a leisurely drive to Wenatchee and were pleasantly surprised by the ample parking, nice entry and lobby. The staff was busy but efficient and friendly. We asked to have our reserved room be on the eastern/river side and without any hesitation were given room 725. We choose from one of the three quiet elevators (with windows to the outside view!) and zoomed up to our king room. The hallways were clean, had newer carpeting and paint, and were well lit. The door opened to an inviting room complete with a 32-inch flat screen (lots of college bowl games to be seen). The room had newer carpeting and paint and the bathroom was tastefully updated with new tile. A small refrig was located under the bathroom vanity. The bed was comfortable with many pillows.
The view to the east from our room was across a couple of blocks, then four RR tracks, the Riverfront Trail, the Columbia River, and East Wenatchee. The building seemed to be very well-constructed, as one can tell when walking down the hallway: no vibrations underfoot from us or others that passed by the room. The ice machine and soda machine was just two doors away from us. Never heard ‘em. We rarely heard any of the others guests, water running or noise from the Rooftop Grill two floors above us (more on the Grill below) or even the passing trains. So, we got great nights of sleep!
The Rooftop Grill has a great view in either direction, plus there’s an open gas fireplace in the restaurant. Nice! The bar appetizers were great (especially the shrimp and the chicken quesedia). Leta, our server in the bar was excellent, and reminded us that the house wine is 14 Hands (a good value). Breakfast entrees on our package were “free”, had ample portions (unless you’re from the mid-west) and offered a good variety. Casual ambiance but good, reminding us a bit of a ski lodge.
The cons: no shower caps, nor a fan, in the bathroom.
Did not apply: didn’t do room service, but went to the Ridgetop Grill one morning and carried two glasses of juice to the room. The hotel has two swimming pools and two hot tubs, one set indoors and one set outdoors. Small swimmers that we met in the elevator pronounced the water a little cool and tasting like chlorine.
SUMMARY: This ain’t the Four Seasons and it’s not in the big city . . . . but I have a hard time identifying with the negative reviews. We had a FUN time and would stay here again, especially during ski season!
We rate it 4.5 stars.
