Bumped another couple into our honeymoon suite on our wedding night. Luckily they were family and hadn't used the bed yet. In the end, a phonecall with the manager led to a free night stay, so it was sorted.

We stayed here for a wedding. Everything was at the hotel, the ceremony, the reception....everything which was very nice.

It would be nice if they offered free...

Thank you for taking advantage by staying with us for the wedding. You are right once you park the car you don't really need it if you stay in the downtown area.

We loved the hotel. It was first time at coast hotel & would highly recommend. The only complaint was they only offer Starbucks coffee so we had to leave building go for morning coffee somewhere else. Clean, comfortable & quiet. Shampoo & conditioner excellent.

My fiancee and I stayed at the coast Bastion in Nanaimo, and they were kind enough to upgrade us to a king room! The service was great and friendly, room was clean and we loved the relaxed vibe. I would definitely recommend staying here and would come back again.

This hotel is conveniently located in proximity to shops, restaurants and cafés. A nice promenade along the harbor is only a block away. Clean rooms, the shower had good water pressure, and the overall bed condition was good, however my pillow was a little lumpy (maybe bad luck). I would definitely stay there again, but I would ask for a...
