Quiet, easy check in with room ready and great parking available for a small fee. Room was clean and had a wonderful view of the harbor. Sleeping was quite comfortable and quiet enough. Enjoyed the stay completely.

We decided to stay at The Coast Bastion Hotel for 2 nights while we explored Nanaimo Harbour instead of just driving past town like we usually do when travelling to our destination in Parksville. The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the Departure Bay ferry terminal and in the heart of the ever improving downtown core of the city....

The Cost Bastion hotel is a very nice, clean and modern Hotel. It was the perfect Location for us as it is very Close to all Ferry terminals. It is located directly at the Harbour which allows you to go for a walk along the sea and is also Close to various small Restaurants, cafes, etc.

I stayed in a deluxe queen room with a partial view of the harbour. I'd say this is one nice and clean hotel. Very relaxing, which is just what I needed at the time. Service was good and they also have a restaurant that serves delicious food, so convenient. This would be my go-to place to stay in Nanaimo.

Nice hotel with lovely harbour views ,especially from the higher floors. Close walk to many nice restaurants on waterfront. Ask them about discount to Lighthouse Bistro which is right on the waterfront walkway and 2-3 minutes walking. Hotel is close to all downtown events and Port Theatre . Good spot.

We stayed for one night on a return trip "down island" and then back to Vancouver. Great location in centre of old Nanaimo. Easy walking to the piers, restaurants and shops. The hotel was clean, fairly modern and made for a comfortable stay.
