Happy with our stay - clean and nicely appointed hotel and rooms for the price. Friendly staff and a very good self-serve breakfast. Ideal location if you want to walk to shopping and restaurants. Nice and quiet.

Friendly and efficient staff. Check-in was quick as was check-out. The room was quiet, clean and spacious. Internet was included and reasonably fast. I was told that the attached pub and restaurant closed six months ago. There was not a great selection of restaurants close by. I had a vehicle so not a big problem but could be an issue... More

We'd like to thank Heinrich I for their review and for choosing to stay with us. This review is fairly accurate and we do not have a pub or restaurant operating on site. That being said we do feel there is an excellent selection of restaurants within close walking distance, as well as a good selection of restaurants a short... More

Stayed there last week. Average room appointments; nothing fancy. The breakfast is very standard and offers mainly cold food. There is a waffle maker. The TV doesn't have an off timer which is an issue for me because I like falling asleep with some boring program in the background. Stayed there in late September yet still paid summer rates or...

We'd like to thank CanukSteve for their review and for the feedback of our hotel. We are sorry that the sleep timer feature is not available by default on our TV's. Access to the menu is disabled to prevent guests from accidentally changing settings on the units. That being said if someone wants to request that feature on their TV... More

Stayed one night on way home. Staff at front desk exceptional - very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, spacious and beds very comfortable. Even though our room faced the parking lot there was no street noise. Breakfast was very good with lots of variety. Close to shopping mall and also close to the ferry. I would definitely stay...

We'd like to thank jzjsolo7 for their review, and also thank them for being so involved in the TripAdvisor community. They have obviously spent a lot of time travelling and posting that many reviews takes time. Thank you again. More

Mom and I stayed one night. We have a small dog and she was welcome there. Their courtyard is grassy and good for the dog. The breakfast was standard fare but clean and a decent sized room. There was no noise even though we were on the ground floor next to the parking lot. Convenient location for shopping at the... More

We stayed one night on a shopping/caving staycation. Staff were all friendly and willing to help. Hotel seems a bit older but well maintained and in good shape. Breakfast buffet was good. The waffle maker was a favorite of my son's. Lots of boiled eggs, yoghourt, COFFEE, fresh fruit, muffins, etc. Hot tub was clean and towels at tub side.... More

This hotel is well located if your traveling around the city area. The rooms were updated and clean. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. The place is a little noisy sic e it sits on a bust street.

We'd like to thank Maria N for their review. As the reviewer mentions we are well located to travel around the city and we'd also add that we are located closest to the best shopping in Nanaimo. We are located on the highway and on a fairly busy street so there is typical traffic noise in the area that you... More

We always stay at The Northgate Inn when we have to go to Victoria for medical appointments. The hotels we stayed at in Victoria were not as nice as this one and are very expensive so it's worth the 2 hr. drive back to Nanaimo before we head for home.
