Coast Bastion Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A family stay to visit local sites. Hotel is central but can be tricky to access with one way streets. Ocean walk and shops are across the street food and bar are excellent. Room tidy and very comfortable

This was a work trip with some complications. The interesting aspect was management attitude that problems need to be solved, promptly and graciously. There was also recognition that some additional staff training might be in order.

Great hotel, a fabulous experience from valet, car parking reception check in and check out. Clean and newly renovated. The reason they did not get 5 stars is the gym. Could be moved out of the basement to a room with natural light and the equipment upgraded. But it still meets your basic needs as a traveling business person.

Great staff, very clean and spacious room! the bathrooms are massive! im a very picky guy when it comes to cleaniness and the place did not give me no nasty feelings, I always check for bed bugs first and found no evidence!

We really enjoyed this hotel and the pleasant staff. This is a great location if you are visiting Nanaimo, plenty to see and do within walking distance. Parking is a bit confusing, but I think they are working on that. The rooms were really nice and both had pleasant views.

We only stay at the Coast Bastion. Immaculate, friendly and always an upgrade! Location is perfect for shopping and walks ocean. A perfect get-away. Front desk staff always remember guests and are very welcoming.

Awesome room with a view, excellent customer service. Very convenient location for attending events at Port Theatre and has covered parking.The hotel exterior, hallways, elevator is drab and needs a upgrade

We found all the staff to be exceedingly friendly and helpful. The view from room 707 was exceptional. The beds were so comfy and we loved the pillows. The Starbucks coffee was an added bonus. Will definitely stay here again. Just steps to Port theatre, the casino and the waterfront. Couldn't have found a more pleasant place to stay.

Hotel is centrally located in downtown Nanaimo and offers facilities for personal, group or corporate needs. Minoz restaurant and lounge provides quality service and a wide menu of food and beverage. Rooms are quiet and well cared for with needed amenities.

When we realized that we were not going to get to the last Gabriola Ferry, we called ahead and the hotel had a room for us. It was clean, the beds and bedding were great and it was the perfect place to stay so we could catch the ferry in the morning. The staff were very friendly, valet parking was great late at night and we will definitely stay here again.
