    Great location on the Nanaimo waterfront and in the heart of the downtown. The rooms are modern, lovely and clean but in contrast, the hallways are worn, tired and a little musty smelling and the elevator doors are dirty. The staff is friendly and helpful....More

    I'm pretty picky about hotels. I loved this place and will definitely come back. There was just nothing to complain about. All good- clean room, nice little balcony that looks over the harbor and allows for fresh air in the room. The restaurant/bar was good/fun.

    Stopped here on the way up island. The rooms are nice, beds really comfy, restaurant is nice at both dinner and breakfast. The staff were plenty and helpful to boot. Great view from my room of the harbour.

    Friendly staff, GREAT location, nice quality linens, sleek furniture, lovely bath products and a great view. Easy walk to shops, waterfront and restaurants. We had lunch with our conference room today and it was very good. Looking forward to my next stay.

    Check out is at 12noon. You can check with the front desk the morning off your stay to see if it can be longer. If the hotel is full, then check out would be 12noon.
