This is a good hotel that is showing its age. Its lack of any secure internet option is also a problem. Friendly staff make it a solid choice however. The gym is adequate but a bit of an after thought- older machines and only one treadmill to choose from.

I enjoyed a one-night stay at this downtown waterfront hotel before catching the ferry back to the mainland. My seventh-floor room came equipped with everything you’d expect from a hotel of this standard: two large beds, decent TV, safe, coffee-maker, free wi-fi (no problems connecting) and an ironing board and iron. The partial view of the harbour stretching away to...

You pull up to the hotel on a busy downtown street with temporary parking for 2 cars. I had to circle the block twice before I could stop to check in. They gave me a parking pass for an underground parking lot a block away. My truck has too high to go into it. Try and back up on a...

Dear Ryan W, I am sorry that you felt ripped off. You are right if you're vehicle cannot fit in the parking lot it has to go to the outdoor lot. I wish there was something else we can do for your truck. Also not sure which parking lot you may have gone to, the parking lot we use for...

I've stayed here before; it's my go-to place in Nanaimo. Courteous and friendly staff. Comfortable bed, clean room. Lots of good things to say about this place. Parking is a short walk away but entirely accessible without going outdoors, i.e., parkade shared with other businesses. One thing that did kind of annoy me was the desk in the room. Being...

Thank you for your comments. Not sure which room you had so if you could email me at h.traa@coasthotels.com and I will see what room type you should book so the desk is not right in front of the TV for you.

We stayed 2 nights in a Premium King with oceaview room and it didn't disappoint. We were on the 11th floor and had a terrific view of the harbour. The room was huge with several big windows and sliding glass doors to a step-out balcony. The king bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It was a little cold...

The Coast Bastion is a well kept, well appointed hotel with a perfect location in downtown Nanaimo. The rooms are very clean, the beds are super comfortable, and the amenities are top notch. We have stayed before and will stay again. Highly recommended accommodation.

Clean, comfortable. Room on 7th floor overlooking the harbour without having to request it or pay more. Parking 9:50 per.day. In the heart of the historic old town with with good coffee shops around and little stores. We live locally had an early flight to catch, so stayed here.

“Take a walk along the waterfront and taste the offerings from the shops there. An hour at the casino is fun and the best restaurant in Nanaimo, if you don't want to eat at the hotel, is just a block away.”
