  • 2.0.Poor

    Worst stay in Nanaimo!!

    Worst service ever! The old lady at reception was trying to charge me extra fee for my service dog after the second day because apparently the dog was barking when they try to enter the room to do an inspection. We booked thru hotels.com and specify that we have service dog but thing change once we arrived .Place was not clean

  • 8.0.Very good

    Perfect location close to airport, mid way for us to do day trips and see the beautiful sites. The person who checked us in was not very friendly almost rude but anyone else we came into contact with was friendly. The place is within walking distance to places to eat and when we come back we would stay longer.

  • 6.0.Good

    I was expecting A/C and they don’t have. The smell of the room is just awful. Maybe change the cleaning products. Not nice at all. Small rooms. Parking spaces are very small, that’s why people parked so badly and then the place is full and you barely can find a spot.

    The room was perfect for a solo business trip. Comfortable bed, close to the ferry terminal. The TV was too complicated to use, but that might just be my problem.

    The room was clean and tidy when we checked in. There were fans in the room, which helped to keep the room a bit cooler!
