Very friendly and accommodating at short notice. Nice, clean and cute property. Very helpful in making dinner suggestions and the like. I would recommend it to others in a heartbeat. Though a car would be handy if staying here.

We stayed at the most beautiful home the Buccanner Inn has to offer. March 8th of this year for a week. This home is gorgeous with its view and gourmet kitchen. Beautiful bedrooms, bathrooms and so much more. Prime rib and turkey dinners were cooked in that gourmet kitchen. Monique and this gorgeous house made our vacation. You must book... More

Our suite was clean, nicely decorated and the ownership has a real commitment to the motel being ecologically friendly. We were made to feel welcome by Monique and she was helpful in our activity planning.

My partner and I stayed at the Buccanner Inn last week and were very pleased with our stay. We were upgraded to the fireplace suite as I believe they got quite busy with a work crew. The suite is HUGE, very clean, very comfortable and well appointed. The beds have wonderful duvets and great matresses. One of the owners, Marlene,... More

We stayed here because we were catching the ferry. Nothing fancy, but very reasonable rates for the comfortable accommodations provided. Easy walking distance to the ferry. We would definitely stay here again.

My room had a quiet private bedroom. The bed, sheets and pillows are of the high-end luxury hotel quality. The owners have thought of everything for their guests comfort. A small vintage stove in pristine condition is available as well as everything you could possibly use to fix a meal or two. They have even taken the time to provide... More

Had to spend the night in Nanaimo and after reading all the reviews we picked the Buccaneer. It is an older motel but in mint shape. Clean and nice rooms our room came with a separate bedroom. This is a true jem in this day and age of monolithic boxes. The owners have pride of ownership which is a rare... More

We decided to stay here because it was close to the BC Ferries Terminal. The room was very clean and tidy. Had microwave, fridge, and small kitchen. All you need for a comfortable nights stay. I would stay here again when in town.

The price points are fabulous, but also the care and detain of this refurbished motel will make your stay extremely comfortable. The rooms are clean, equipped with many toiletries etc. (even so far as to including Nivea creme) and they even supply you with games and books. The location is very close to the ferry (literally walking distance) and not... More

We stayed for three nights at the Buccaneer Inn. The motel room with kitchenette was quite clean and comfortable. The bedding was wonderful. This motel is a stone's throw from the Departure Bay terminal and unfortunately the traffic is plentiful. Over all, we found the Inn suited our needs quite well.
