Mission, Canada
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Even while under renovation, the open wing works well, and the staff are always helpful. The new fit out is well done, though the new blackout curtains seem to be less effective than the old ones, at reducing traffic noise. Looking forward to the 'fully open' experience.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 October 2016

This hotel was chosen based on reviews and the location. We were touring the island and this location turned out to be an excellent choice for our 2 night stay in the Nanaimo area. Very easy to find and only a short drive from the ferry. It is located in "suburbia" but it is so handy for any shopping and...

GMNorthgate, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Northgate Inn, responded to this review

We would like to thank marbella50 for their very detailed review of our property. The location is a very good description and we are certainly located in a suburban area of Nanaimo close to Woodgrove shopping Centre. Many guests use us as a stopping point and as an 'in-between' location for Downtown Nanaimo and Parksville/ Qualicum Beach. I'm glad they...

Stayed here on numerous occasions over the years and found it was satisfactory and the location was great. They have recently initiated some interior renovations that are fantastic. The rooms have been completely updated as well as the lobby. Although they were still renovating half of the hotel, we were given grab bag breakfasts and Timmy's gift card instead of...

Front desk staff were super friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Liked the coffee and tea station in the lobby. Super easy access to shopping and main highways. Really good food at little georges pizza next door.

We would like to thank 867rayannes for their review of our hotel and their experience. We have made a lot of improvements during this renovation including a new WIFI system and have made many improvements in the rooms.

A bit expensive for off season,but Nanaimo does not have a lot of newer places to stay and few in that part of town.Newer then the opposite of rather old,the rooms are going to be all renewed.We picked this place because of the location,and i knew it was reasonably modern.
