We really enjoyed our visit at the Best Western Northgate Inn. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially at breakfast. We had a nice large room, and enjoyed the fact that it had a balcony. Easy access to major roads to get around Nanaimo quickly. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed for five nights and enjoyed our stay. The room was large with a small fridge, sink, stove and microwave. The location excellent for getting around Nanaimo, with a large shopping center within walking distance.

Overall good value for money. The breakfast is continental and not great. You will be much better of buying something elsewhere. Ask for a room off the main road as this could get noisy- although, when balcony door is closed, this is not realy an issue.

We'd like to thank Jan C for their review. Some great tips about our hotel but since breakfast is very subjective I should expand on our continental breakfast in terms of what is offered. We feature make your own waffles, we have hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereals, white and whole wheat bread, muffins, bagels and other goodies, as well as... More

We'd like to thank Martin K. for their review and we are glad that our guest really enjoyed their stay. We appreciate the feedback with regards to price, but as a mid-scale hotel we are not going to be as cheap as say some of the budget hotels in Nanaimo. Out of the mid-scale hotels (Chain and Independent) we feel... More

staying here tonight due to the bad weather. Nothing has changed from my first time here a few months ago. Still very clean, quiet and staff seem friendly. Love the large sized soap dispenser but I still think it is located in the wrong place, at the opposite end of the tub from the taps. Ok if you take a... More

There is some great feedback here regarding our hotel. We do use dispensers for shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. If you love taking baths please ask for some bottle amenities and we will be happy to put them in your room for when you check in. Also a great tip about food service at the hotel. We offer a free...

The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable and clean and excellent value for the internet price. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. We would stay here again.

I picked this hotel largely due to location. Front desk staff were excellent here. The room was okay but looked like a few things could use some updating. A pet peeve of mine is the lack of available outlets without having to unplug electronic devises in the room. Desk areas should have at least 3 empty plugs for business travelers... More

We would like to thank John G for their review. We'll have to look at options for permanently increasing the number of outlets available at the nightstand. In the meantime if anyone has any additional power needs please let us know and we can easily come up with a temporary solution. The desk however we have 4 free outlets in... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past 7 years. The staff and hotel amenities are very reliable and consistent. It is however a fairly bust hotel so book in advance if you can. The hotel is east to locate off the Island hiway and in a fairly quiet area. Rooms are always clean and everything works... More

We really appreciate our veteran repeat customers such as Darren D giving advice to other traveller's and reviewing our hotel. Our hotel can indeed get very busy and we always recommend making reservations in advance when possible. Great advice. More
