Convenient location, good price, clean, kitchenettes, next to highway but one that's not noisy at night. Mom and pop operation, pleasant folks. Gave a seniors discount. Had to ask for it, but maybe because we look so young....

This is a very basic, cheap motel. The building is old but the rooms have been renovated. Thankfully it looks better on the inside than the outside.The beds are decent. The bathrooms are very bright and hot water is plentiful.

. This was the worst place I have ever stayed. It was dirty and noisy. Cobwebs all over the room. Filthy blanket on the bed. Very lumpy old comforter. I would never stay here again. And I usually choose lower priced motels. This was way over priced. We stayed at a very very nice hotel for the same price.

A very basic and down to earth stay. The room was small but clean, and exactly what we needed for one night in the city. No frills, but the price reflects it. The room came with a small kitchenette with basic utensils. Staff was friendly. Payment was required before I saw the room, which was the only strange thing. The hotel is right beside a busy road, and although there had been attempts to dampen the sound, it was still quite noisy in the room. However, the road is less busy at night, and so the noise is much less. There is also a small patio looking out on a lovely lawn with a forest in the background - very nice on a spring evening in Nanaimo.

Front staff very friendly. Booked a cheap rate through Hotels.com, knowing it wasn't very highly rated, but it was a late night with an early morning. Map in lobby shows where all guests have come from. Put in family suite as king room we'd booked was taken. Everything very tired and old, but room was clean, although the bed covers had us skeptical. Street noise settled later in the evening, so sleep wasn't too bad. Free wifi, good signal.
