This is by far the best Best Western property that we have stayed at. The staff were wonderful - all of them were genuinely friendly. Our room was super clean and had everything we needed plus more! The furniture was a cut above the usual hotel utilitarian furniture and made us feel as if we were in a grander place.... More

We enjoyed our stay, because of the extremely helpful staff, the cleanliness, and location for our trip across island to Tofino BC. at my request they changed location of our room, and when we returned to stay again, moved us closer to the front of hotel. We left something in the room, so they e-mailed us to advise, also told... More

Appears to be recently renovated. Clean, comfortable motel. Best feature is bed and bedding very comfortable and a grade or two above what one would expect. Large breakfast area with good continental selection including waffles. Very friendly accommodating staff.

We stayed one night and have to say the staff was helpful with my questions. Since I am ffom the states, we did not have a cell phone and they helped me make a call. We requested a room on the quiet side and we found it to be quiet. There is a mall across the street with Winners and... More

This hotel looks a bit run down from the outside. I'm glad I booked online ahead of time, because I'd never get a room based on a drive-by. That being said, the thing that sticks out in my mind is the staff they have there. There were 2 people on the counter upon check in and check out, and they... More

Entered the room and it spectacular, can't say no more. Staff excellent, breakfast, great. Front sign has to have sign turn 90 degrees to see the sign when driving up from Metral Dr. looking for hotel, big tree blocking sign. So try this place out. Adios.

Stayed off in the Best Western Northgate using it as a base to tour around Vancouver Island. Hotel is located a few miles out of Nanaimo town but is directly next to the highway and has plenty of shops and restaurants within easy distance. Rooms are decent size, clean and all have a small balcony. All rooms have wifi, aircon... More

My daughter, a teammate and myself were in Nanaimo for a masters swim meet. The hotel was very easy to find. Upon arrival at the hotel, our room was ready and we were able to check in, and get a much-needed afternoon nap before dinner. The room was very clean, the bed and bedding were very clean and comfy, the... More
