Very clean, comfortable and friendly. We had an ocean view room with a very small balcony but gave great view of the Nanaimo harbour. Very close to the harbourfront so we had lovely evening walks exploring. Breakfast at the attached restaurant was excellent.

This hotel is right on Nanaimo harbour. I had comfortable room which was listed as deluxe, but not sure how that was different than a normal room..Great view of the harbour.. Restaurant had problems, but front desk staff refunded the full price of my meal. Do not order the fish tacos.

The room was very clean and spacious - lots of room, even with our two big suitcases. Beautiful view, overlooking the harbour; by stepping onto the juliet balcony we also had a city view. Harbour front across road. Would love to stay there again.

Only stayed one night however everything was first rate. Great location and very helpful employees. Perfect for those looking one night stay very close to the Nanaimo ferry. Would certainly recommend.

Reviewed 17 August 2016

Room and service were very good considering the price. Great view of the harbour. Great location in the heart of town. Recommend a room on a higher floor to better enjoy the view. Restaurant was decent. Hard to understand how simple motels in the area are charging nearly as much.

My Fiance and I came up to Nanaimo for a Cadet Military function and I had reserved the room online originally. When we got there we where greeted by a nice lady at the front desk, who startled us with excitement that we were getting a free room upgrade. She wanted it to be a surprise! When we got up...
