It was exactly what I wanted. comfortable and the price I paid for. I had a very good night, their beds and pillows are fantastic. they also have a little poster regarding to recycle and reduce, I think it's a Canadian thing to do. Well done

Excellent location! Clean and spacious room. Air conditioner unit was quite loud. Helpful and Courteous staff. Fitness facility is quite small. Only issue was finding parking in the evening in the parade.

I'm sorry about the parking, sometimes our bellman can help with the parking if you ever have an issue again. Send me an email to h.traa@coasthotels.com I would like to see which room you were in for the loud AC.

I have never stayed at the Bastion as I live locally, but I frequent the restaurant and lounge on a weekly basis. The hotel location is perfect for walking the waterfront and the downtown. The restauraunt and lounge have excellent staff and their staff are friendly and attentive. They have a happy hour in the lounge seven days a week...

It was my first time at the Coast Bastion Hotel and from the minute I walked in I felt like a VIP Client. The focus was on my check-in and my needs. Very clean hotel and the well appointed room had all the amenities. The view... oh, what can say! Ask for a Harbour View Room and you won't be...

We walked into the Coast Bastion off the street after a spur-of-the-moment decision to spend the night in Nanaimo. Perhaps we were just lucky, but the checking was all completed in less than five minutes without any prior reservations. The reception staff were helpful, friendly and attentive. Parking facilities are convenient and safe. The room had a great view of...

We arrived without a reservation, nice staff who managed to find us a room with a view of the harbour. Very nice atmosphere in the hotel, room was large with a good size TV screen (not laptop size!), very comfortable beds, a well designed bathroom with tub and adjustable shower head. Great attention paid to limit waste, such as shampoo/soap...

Hotel easy to find / Lobby & Staff were great with service, help & smiles / Minnoz was good for lunch & dinner, service was very slow & staff need to be more observant of their customers when walking the room / underground parks was nice, but can fill up with events & locals for parking & shopping downtown.

My room was on a high floor and the view was outstanding. I watched the boats and seaplanes coming and going. The sound proofing was great as I never heard any outside sounds unless the sliding deck/patio door was open. The location of this hotel is great. Close to the harbor and close to the main drag.

You did one of the best things from our room just sit back and watch the float planes coming and going. Thank you for the nice review and for staying with us. We hope you come back soon.

This hotel was in a great location - on the marina and within walking distance of the historic district. Our room was clean and nicely appointed with contemporary furnishings and finishes. The bed was comfortable. We had just stayed at the Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino, so our standards were pretty high! The Coast Bastion definitely held its own. We also...
