They took good care of me, gave me the top floor room on the quieter Metral Dr side of the hotel as per my room preference request. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and courteous, I really appreciated the nice way they greeted me and upgraded me to a suite. Generally a nice clean and quiet suite,...

We would like to thank this guest for their review. At first we assumed this review may have been for another property but the guest did also review the Ricky's here in Nanaimo. Ricky's is not attached to our hotel, but a 5 minute walk on the other side of the Highway from us. We do not have a restaurant...

the room was nice, comfortable bed and nice customer service at the front desk. The laundry was broken which was a disappointment to us. Breakfast was good but in an inconvenient place. The staff was helpful and greeted us with a smile.

A nice place to stop if you are doing business in the North of Nanaimo. In for business, our usual haunt was booked solid for a convention. So we looked further afield. Since we were working in the North, my travel agent suggested this place. I am glad she did. walking distance to several good eateries, and close to our...

We stayed overnight at the Northgate since we did not want to drive all the way to Tofino in one day from Kamloops. The hotel was great - clean, comfy and close to shopping and restaurants. The breakfast room was exceptionally clean and the food was good for hotel fare. We would recommend this hotel and we would stay here...

Langley, Canada
Reviewed 30 May 2016

Make sure you get a room that is not on the "jake brake" side of the hotel if you are sensitive to being able to sleep - having the patio closed helps - and is necessary as there is no secondary lock or screen anyway.

Initially difficult to find, since streets to left and right of main highway have different names. But it was easy after the first challenging search. Parking was adequate, and in the evening when parking lot was full, there was ample overflow space in a nearby mini-shopping area with an all night pizza place to boot. Within easy access of the...

We stayed at this hotel while visiting family in Nanaimo, BC. It was a comfortable stay, with a lovely complimentary breakfast each morning. Staff were very helpful, both in the dining area and at the front desk. The hotel is conveniently located at the north end of town, next to the largest shopping centre. We will definitely be back, and...
