We had a night here before visiting relatives. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and we had a nice room with two queen beds. Even the weather was good! We were recommended to walk 7 mins to a nearly restaurant and guess what? It took exactly 7 mins! Was well worth visiting. The hotel was good value and... 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.

We had such a good time, we are going back. The weather was perfect, the people were perfect, the meals were perfect, the hotel was perfect. Everyone was friendly at the hotel and every other area that we visited on the island, I did not want to leave!

this hotel seemed to be quite new. We had two rooms each with fridge and microwave. The rooms were very spacious and included a sofa/chairs. The beds were very comfy and the lighting was good. There was a guest laundromat. A very nice touch was that the laundry soap was free. Breakfast was decent/not too many whole grains. The staff... More

We stayed here for 1 night and I was glad to leave. The room when we entered felt and smelled old. It came equipped with a kitchenette that desperately needed some updating. The tv did not work and we called for someone to fix it and for some reason he could not find out where the problem was so we... More

We pride ourselves in delivering a great stay for our guests and it's disappointing when our guests are not fully satisfied. From reading other reviews it should be clear that this was a 'one time' occurrence. The Shaw cable box failed late at night and unfortunately it could not be replaced. We apologized and offered the only solution at that... More

As usual for me with Best Western I was extremely well served by staying here. The staff were friendly, helpful and very polite. The included breakfast was good, the hotel was clean, amenities were great. I liked the location and the area. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Overall I feel I got a great experience for the cost.

A great option for families with children or non-clausterphoic persons as the room we stayed in had an adjoining "bedroom" with jacuzzi tub. The main room had 2 double beds , TV, small fridge, nothing special, but nice. The adjoining bedroom had a door to it, but no windows. It also had a jaccuzzi tub, closet, its own TV and... More

The rooms are very clean and nicely laied out, if you prefer softer beds I suggest you ask for 3rd floor. They are in the middle of doing roof renovations but did not notice any major disturbances. Well located. Breakfast is limited, but plenty if you have a family (waffles, muffins, cereal, etc). If in area, recommend this place to... More
