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.

Overall a good experience. One of three room service meals was disappointing but the other two were good. The room was quiet and the view in the morning of the snowy Coast Mtns across the water was wonderful.

Our stay at the Coast Bastion was with a large group that had to be accommodated in various ways, often without much warning to staff. The service was above and beyond every time.
