The Best Option

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 5, 2014

The Coast Bastion is my husbands top choice when he stays in Nanaimo, so it was an obvious choice for us to stay at. It's conveniently located at Front St & Bastion St across from the Bastion tower. If you fly in with Harbour Air it's even walking distance.
The hotel is clean & modern, with helpful and extremely friendly staff. They make check-in/out easy and painless and were always willing to lend a suggestion for a place to eat and were excellent with our daughter - offering her treats for her stuffed puppy and providing her with a colouring book and crayons which were great to have at restaurants.
Both of the rooms we stayed in during our visits (our stays were broken up by a camping trip on the island), were big, clean, comfortable and had all the amenities we could need plus great views of the harbour.
If you have a dog with you, the hotel also advertises itself as pet friendly but I would check with them to get their full policy before booking with a dog.

Unique Quality: One of the things I love the most about Coast hotels is that they are very environmentally conscious. They offer full sized bottles of all of their toiletries on the bathroom so that small bottles aren't thrown out after each visitor leaves (though they do offer small bottles as well for those who wish to use them - which they encourage you to take home and use if you open them). They offer a number of other suggestions on plaques in the guest rooms to help their guests be more environmentally friendly during their stay and I love this so much!

Directions: Right at the corner of Front St & Bastion St across from The Bastion
