I brought my family with me there were four of us me and my kids and my wife. We were looking for somewhere nice to stay that was close to the Duke Point ferry terminal. Therefore, we chose the Value Lodge motel on Nicol St. in Nanaimo. I would have to say the experience that we had at the motel...

I recently stayed at the Value lodge August of 2013. I have been there once before in 2009. The difference is night and day. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, They were extremely accommodating with letting me know what their was to do in the sleepy town of Nanaimo. From restaurants to bars, they even let me know about...

Needed a cheap place for one night so didn't have high expectations. What I do expect is cleanliness. Yuck. There was a long black hair in the shower, layers of dust behind the nightstand, and something black in the bed, so I slept on top. On the good side, the bed was comfortable, the microwave, fridge and coffee maker were...

The location on the highway and the rates were a draw but there is a core of long term residents that are foul mouthed and noisy - I would not recommend this for a family or a sensitive person. The desk service was good and meant well but... room had that "old motel" smell. there are numerous affordable options within...

My business always rely on travelling and when it comes to "Travelling" you would want to stay at the decent accommodation since you are away from home, right? however, this place can be described as just "Horrible". They are advertising now everywhere that they are under the new management and doing all kinds of renovation which I've spoken to the...

My friend and I were forced to stay here while on business in Nanaimo because it was the only place we found that had any rooms available. We booked a double room and while the price was lower than most places, it wasn't too significant. The room itself was absolutely terrible though. The floor was dirty, the furniture and bedding...

I am writing to give you some feedback on my experience at the Value Lodge Economy Motel. I traveled to Vancouver Island on the September 1, 2006 with my significant other for holiday.
