Good3.0 / 5
Location is everything
Room was clean, except for half drank soda in fridge. Staff was helpful and nice. Location was ideal for walking to events at the lagoon. Disappointed with the closure of bar, restaurant and beer and wine store.

Poor1.0 / 5
1960 called, they want their hotel back
The photos look nothing like the hotel. We were extremely disappointed by the 1960 era hotel that appeared to still remain in the 1960s.

Best value in Nanaimo
Always a pleasure to stay here. The best price and value in town! Excellent, accommodating front desk staff. Hotel is aging but very clean, rooms are big. Parking is free and plentiful. Right next to a liquor store and Tim Horton's - what more can you ask for?
