“Used to be one of the better ones but showing neglect”
Reviewed 14 December 2010

Hotel is at best "OK". Been there a number of times, and each time there is something wrong or broken with the rooms. Materials are showing there age and looking tired and hotel generally shows the lack of reinvestment. Pool in the basement gives you that nice dungeon feeling. Elevators and internet are tempermental. If location is not key, there are other options.

On the bright side, staff really are great; very courteous and helpful. Hotel is in a good walking location to try some of the different (few) decent restaurants downtown.

I have taken the time to read some of these reviews and have to say the hotel could use some new furniture and paint but it is clean! The beds are more then comfortable, the Wi Fi and 24 hour business center is very handy when travelling on business and choices of excellent food is a treat. Most of all I have to compliment the staff. Every time I come back I am greeted by name and welcoming smiles. The Coast has an excellent location to the convention center and downtown. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in PG. Very classy place to be.

It was like going back to the 80's. Considering the other options in PG, I think this would be considered one of the nice places to stay there.

I have read a number of poor reviews of this hotel. But I need to differ with many of them. First of all, it must be understood that Prince George is Prince George and not Las Vegas!!!! I stay there on business trips a lot. Some rooms are better than others. If you want a nice room...request #601. Although a little dated and in need of a makeover..it is huge and provides a large deck, two TVS and plenty of comfort for the business traveller. The lounge off the lobby area is a nice place to unwind at then end of a day and the dining is excellent. I choose the Coast over other places in Prince George that are newer but more cookie cutter. Turn down service is also I nice touch that no other hotel in PG has to offer.

Room 701 unfortunately had a noisy air conditioner so loud that it prevented us from getting a good night sleep for our 2 night stay. On our last night I had to stuff wet paper towel into my ears which helped but felt tired and unrested on the long drive home.
For this reason alone I do not recommend this hotel to others. I also took hours for the room to cool. Quite simply this equipment was worn out not maintained. On morning we checked out the male desk attendant left me waiting an unusually long time while he tended to paper work in his office which was very inconsiderate. A good night sleep is important so for this reason alone I do not recommend this hotel.

I concur with most of the comments made by the previous people (esp. Billy Bob) as my recent experience was sub-optimal. Plainly put the room was awful.

The wicker entertainment unit and the bedding the same color and pattern of Mrs. Roper's mo-mo, would have been a nice touch if they were doing a 70s theme room purposefully, but do not think it was intended to be retro-sheik!

The room had an unfriendly odor to it and the wicker was so beat up, scuffed and wobbly. The TV was not a retro dial and did have a remote. Additionally, the Coast did ensure that the TV also did not have matches or a bar of soap under it to level it off but was probably close to original to the hotel!

The bed was ok and the Hi-Fi was down for one of 2 days with no time line on it being back up and no follow-up from the front desk as promised.

I do like the conveniance of downtown close to my customers and the points that I get from Coast but that only gets you so far and although I do and will stay at the Coast in many other interior hotels but think that I am going to await a rennovation before I return to this one as the cost is too high for the limited that it does offer.... Sorry Coast but you are going to have to try harder!

The fridge was dirty, the sink didn't hold water, the portable phone didn't work and the pen leaked. There was nowhere to walk our dog, so we had to drive her to a green area to do her business. We paid more for this hotel than one in Burnaby!!! The parking lot is small and when full, you must park on the roof and walk down a flight of stairs to get to the elevator. This is problematic for someone with knee problems. The housekeeping staff were friendly but the front desk not so much. Really cheap with the coffee whitener and sugar in the room. Only one hot chocolate packet in the room - what if we both wanted some? We won't be staying here again!
