Coast Hotels is a trusted name in Western Canada and the Pacific NW, and for good reason. I know we always feel better when we see that trademark circular emblem. The Coast Lethbridge Hotel is new, completely comfortable, and very spacious. It’s located in the heart of town within walking distance to the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden and Henderson Lake Park.
When we’re looking for a hotel while en route on a road trip, we want three the following amenities:
- free parking
- quality dining
- a pool
- free WiFi
- kitchenette for simple meals
Coast Lethbridge offers all of the above, plus kicks it up a notch with a full room service menu and Firestone, their onsite restaurant that is truly above par.
We stayed in a Premium room, which included two queen beds and a pull-out bed, but all rooms include an extra sink, mini fridge, and microwave. We could have easily made breakfast in our room, and we stored leftovers as well.
All rooms have free WiFi, a bathtub and shower, and large work desk. We also had two wall-mounted flat screen TVs. Some rooms offer fireplaces and in-suite jacuzzis, but neither are on my list of must-haves in a road trip.
Pool and fitness center:
The Coast Lethbridge fitness center is fairly small, but includes the necessities for a basic workout on the road. Ask the front desk staff for running and walking trails as well; there are quite a few nearby.
The pool and hot tub are indoor. When I realized they were housed downstairs on the restaurant level, I worried I’d be stepping into a dark, stuffy basement area, but was pleasantly surprised by how light and airy the room is. The pool is large, given the available space, and very clean.
We really enjoyed Firestone for both breakfast and dinner. The hotel does not have a complimentary breakfast, but Firestone is worth your investment. The decor and ambiance in the restaurant pleasantly surprised me as well; you step from the hotel to a trendy bistro instantaneously.
During the time of our visit, a standard room went for $134 CAN (premium for $150). A very good value! And if you like Coast Hotels as much as we do, sign up for their loyalty program. It’s always a good idea!
