We wanted a nice place to stay for our anniversary. This hotel is a tremendous value. We got a harbour view room for less than the cost of basic rooms elsewhere in the area. Room was clean, and we also made use of the pool and hot tub which were great.

Only complaints were that the room wasn't ready when we got there at 4 pm (about an hour after check-in time). Also had to pay $11.99 a night for parking which I hadn't been told before we got there. The parkade is gated, but anyone can drive in. You need an exit code to get out and I was given the wrong code at first. So basically, it's secure in that anyone not supposed to be there can't get out. :P

Other than that, we enjoyed our stay, and our complaints were minor glitches that don't warrant lowering the rating on this place. We'd definately return.

This whole hotel is uninspired, right from the bored staff at the front desk to the average rooms to the average beds to the frankly poor breakfasts. And if you're in a room overlooking the water, all I can is, I hope you like the sound of floatplanes taking off and landing early in the morning.

We stayed here for an anniversary celebration and decided to spend a few extra dollars for a harbour view and it was well worth it. We had a very comfortable sized room, nicely decorated. Our only complaint is the bed was not very comfortable at all, but we've experienced worse.

The restaurant was quite good. Great views of the harbour. We found dinner more worth it than breakfast, but it was still more than adequate.

We enjoyed taking the seawall & boardwalk into the inner harbour - very nice walk. Fisherman's Wharf just a little past the hotel is worth checking out too.

All in all, we had a great stay & would come back again.

We stayed at the Coast Harborview hotel in early September. The room was clean, bed comfortable. The only thing visitors should be aware of is there is an additional charge of $11.95 per night for parking.

Other than that, it was nice to be in a hotel that was just off the main busy street, but still close enough to walk to everything.

We spent two nights at the hotel. It is on the inner harbor offering a beautiful view. We were able to walk to all the harbor sites and also to several very good resturants. The staff was very helpful in giving us advice and directions.

The property is a little dated (most noticeable in the bathroom plumbing) but is in excellent repair. My room and the corridors were pleasantly decorated in shades of sands and browns. Beds weren't the best, especially the pillows, but I've had way worse. Many rooms have a partial harbour view with what I think you call a "Juliet balcony". (Basically a patio door and a railing). The best feature of the balcony is that is permits lots of fresh air into the room- none of those hotel windows that only open one inch!

The restaurant and bar have an impressive harbour view. Be warned that it is a "gourmet" restaurant and the prices reflect this. (Great for a romantic evening, but not a family dining venue).

You do hear seaplane noise, but I consider that to be an integral part of the character of the city. Wake up with the morning seaplanes and take an early stroll around the harbour wall!

The parking arrangement is a minor unnecessary complication. Besides gouging you an extra $12 a day, it lets motorists in freely via an automated gate but you need a code to get out again. At 11PM they lock the garage and you have to find somewhere to stop your car, walk up to the front desk, and wait for someone to walk around to the garage entrance to manually let you in! I felt like a kid sneaking home after curfew- I guess rolling up the sidewalk at 11PM is an integral part of the city's character as well!

Great location, just a few minutes walk from the Inner harbour.

Spacious and clean rooms although the balcony area was only big enough for one chair - a bit disapointing as we paid for an Exec View room however still a good place to watch the sea planes from.

Breakfast was served to our room fresh & hot and for a reasonable price.
