This is a good value hotel. Not fancy but everything is in good shaper and working order. The staff is very nice at this hotel. It is located nicely at the north end of Nanaimo and is quite. The price for the room is why I say it is good value.

It is a bit north of the city center from Nanaimo, but near many convenient restaurants, convenience stores, etc, and out of the hub-bub of downtown Nanaimo. If you have a car it is much easier to park here and drive into the... More

It is an okay okay hotel. The staff is friendly. The free breakfast is good - sausages , eggs, scrambled eggs, waffles , breads , jams , cereal , fruits etc. The carpets in the hallways and the elevator are very dated. The housekeeping folks for some reason were leaving just 3 bathing towels instead of 4. Of the 4... More

We did ask for a quiet room, but the traffic noise was terrible. Maybe it would have been even worse in other rooms! Couldn't turn the fridge off as the dial just spun and no power point.

The front desk staff were lovely. The room was very clean and the king bed was comfy. It is cool breakfast is included and I really appreciated they had gluten free items and almond milk! The scrambled eggs tasted weird though. All in all very good, affordable hotel. Parking was easy and convenient.

We st ayed three nights at this hitel. While we found the staff and facilities, for the nost part to be excellent, it had two specific defects.
