My husband and I stayed for two nights and enjoyed the marina and ocean view from the small balcony and window of our room. We loved the chaise which was positioned right by the window where we could relax, listen to the seagulls and take in the wonderful ambiance of this ocean side hotel.

Thank you so much for your positive reviews. The ocean side rooms are nice to have especially when the float planes are taking off and landing. Look forward in having you stay with us again in the future.

Our overall stay at the Coast Bastion was very good..Very relaxing and confortable. Would stay there again if in Nanaimo. Enjoyed our morning walks along the bay watching all the boats and people going by. The weather was perfect so that was a plus.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. Check in was fast & easy. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Location was perfect for us being close to ferry and right on the water. We'd stay here again and recommend to others.

It was a steamy day and the coast looked beautiful from the road, I had to pull over and check it out. I had some beautiful cuisine and the service was exemplary. Geeat job everyone. I will return for sure. In the end I can definitely say I was coming. It was sad to go.

The room is actually pretty nice, with decent beds & view. Unfortunately the internet is intermittent at best and the charge you the full 24hr parking fee of the car park next door? Why do I need to say more? This is one of the really stupid aspects of trip advisor

The Coast Bastion was very convenient for a fun weekend stay. You can walk to numerous restaurants and shops from the hotel without needing a car. The waterfront is just across the street. Easy to get to from the ferry.

The room was perfect. We were on our honeymoon and they made it extra special. Nanaimo bars were in our room when we got there and they put us on the top floor with an amazing view. The staff were friendly and helpful.
