We stayed 1 night with a friend and really enjoyed this hotel. It had a motel feel (Outside doors) which was not an issue, in fact I prefer not having to go through the lobby everytime we go out. Great staff, clean rooms and VERY NICE amenities (Tea, Coffee, Shampoos, etc were all high quality) The Breakfast buffet WAS AMAZING...

Thank you DAVE_AND ADRIENNE for taking the time to share your views on our Inn. We do try to use quality products in our guest rooms, rather than just whatever is cheapest or easiest. We do have an amazing woman named Cyndi who does our baking for the breakfast room, and cares for our guests very well. We love her...

This is my first stay at this hotel. The hotel is beautifully situated along a large lake that creates a really nice, country feel away from city life. I've stayed downtown and honestly, this is my new preferred location. It's quiet, peaceful and you can not argue with the beautiful country and lake view, steps from your patio. The rooms...

NanaimoManager, General Manager at The Inn on Long Lake, responded to this review

Thank you Cgyguy30! I love your review. We like being different from big downtown hotels. With our renovation just completed, we deliberately tried to keep a bit of the "country" or "lodge" feel to the property. It makes sense to us, as it does seem to be set in the country, with our lakefront locale, even if its only a...

The hotel does have lovely views and great service but we paid $200/ night. It is certainly not worth that. It's a budget hotel and rates should reflect that. Breakfast was included and wasnt bad. But how can a $200/night not even have a restaurant? We had to order food delivery. Disappointing.

Thank you tashariff for taking the time to review our property. I am so glad that you appreciate the great service our guests receive from the incredible team we have working here-they all take a lot of pride in their jobs.

Thank you DOlovesPR. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you had a good time out on the trails-there is such a variety in what is available to ride all around Nanaimo. The Doumont Mountain bike trails have something for everyone, from fairly tame, relatively flat fire roads and cut lines, to extreme drops, jumps and high...

We certainly enjoyed our visit to The Inn. Recently tastefully redecorated, wonderful helpful staff, and very comfortable accommodations. Our room was on the top floor. Every guest room has views of Long Lake, and we spent time on the balcony enjoying the view, Breakfast was included and had both hot and cold choices, The Inn is close to many shopping...

Thank you Hilda555. It is pretty relaxing on the balcony, watching the lake, the movement of the water. The activity around the lake, from rowers and kayakers, to the families of geese, and even the mink and otter we see periodically make it an ever changing scene. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and we will see you the...

The rooms are exceptional and have an amazing view to boot. I've stayed in both the normal 2 bedroom room and the king bedroom. Very clean, includes fridge,microwave and wonderful accessories for the bathroom. Been renovating over the last few months. Fairly roomy. Ive been coming to Nanaimo quite a bit and every time I come I stay here.

I was in Nanaimo for a conference and this was one of the hotels in our accommodation list. It seemed like a quieter place where we could all get together and hang out after a day of meetings. Welcome: I was greeted with a hello when I arrived and the front desk agent was friendly and helpful with my checkin....

Thanks Cindy! I am glad that you enjoyed your weekend getaway at our lakeside Inn. The view from the third floor is great-not that you get a bad room from the lower floors.
