Now that Super Mario 3D All-Stars is out, tons of people are able to play through three iconic Nintendo platformers for the first time ever on the Switch. The Sirena Beach level’s episode 8 Shine Sprite titled “Red Coins in the Hotel” seems to be giving first-time players some trouble. Here’s a detailed guide on how to get red coins in the hotel in Super Mario Sunshine.
How to Get Red Coins in the Hotel in Super Mario Sunshine
This level in Sirena Beach will require Mario to collect eight red coins that are all inside of the hotel. This should not be too difficult to accomplish but this particular mission is timed, with the game only giving you a few minutes to find them all. Just follow these steps and you’ll definitely make it out with plenty of time to spare.
Red Coin 1
The first coin is the easiest one to get as it will appear right in front of you as soon as the countdown starts. You honestly can not miss it, but here’s an image to help you out just in case you run past it by accident.
Red Coin 2
As soon as you pick up the first coin, head towards the staircase in the back of the room, but before you go up there, head into the bathroom on the right-hand side to find the second red coin.
Red Coin 3
There’s another bathroom on the opposite side, but it will seem that nothing is able to be interacted with, but there’s a little secret here that you might not know about.
Run over to the last stall near the back wall, stand on the toilet, and then jump into the air. This will lead you to another room on the second floor with a small pool of water.
Spray the painting with water to reveal a Boo and then jump through the painting to get into another room that has the third red coin.
Red Coin 4
Stay in the room where the third red coin was found and then spray the closet doors with water until the images match up to show a picture of a Boo.
Run into the new room, go out the door into the main hallway, and then you’ll spot a coin on the opposite side. This one can’t be missed.
Red Coin 5
From here, heads upstairs via the nearby staircase and you’ll find another coin just sitting there.
Red Coin 6
Enter the door right beside the big painted “M” on the wall to gain access to the little pool area to find the sixth one.
Red Coin 7
Leave the pool area through the same door you came in, turn right, and then enter the door that’s opened up already that’s next to a group of yellow coins.
Jump on the bed to reach a hidden area and then make your way through the maze until you reach a closed-off section with six coins. Perform a ground pound in this section and you’ll end up in another room with the seventh red coin! You’re almost there!
Red Coin 8
Now go back to that room with the bouncy bed and head back into the maze by bouncing up on top of it and go back to that same section that you ground-pounded earlier, but instead of ground pounding it, simply walk into the hole to reach a different room that has some posters on the wall.
Spray the posters with some water and you’ll find the last coin in this newly accessible area.
And that’s it! Once you obtain all of the red coins, a Shine Sprite will pop in the main lobby for you to grab. Hopefully this guide helped you all figure out how to get red coins in the hotel in Super Mario Sunshine.
