We stayed here for one night in August and were unable to sleep for the most part. The air conditioner was so noisy that it was impossible to sleep with it on. We set it to the fan setting which was quieter but did not cool the room. Later, when we had showers, we noted that several of the towels... More

Lovely extremely friendly staff, clean room and great breakfast. And definitely dog friendly. Staff even recommended a good dog walk. Hotel is old, but not a concern as it is definitely looked after. Good access from ferry heading towards Victoria

Stayed for one night, the staff was great, the rooms were tidy and the location was great for getting to the ferry. I would strongly suggest removing all valuables from the vehicle as we were broken into and it sounded like it was a common occurrence. The RCMP in Nanaimo was a delight to deal with though.

Thank you for your comments. Please be assured that we are always very concerned about our guest experience. We work hard every day to try and exceed guest expectations. There have been several complaints concerning cars being vandalized in the neighbourhood. We hired a night guard, set up frequent patrolling of the parking lot, increased video surveillance and installed better... More

You know pretty much what you're going to get as far as the rooms go. The building is old, but the inside of the hotel was renovated and modernized a few years ago. Very nice to have a full balcony as well. What makes this hotel stand out from your typical Travelodge is the staff. They are friendly, hard working... More

When such situations happen here at Travelodge Nanaimo, we will without exception, fully recover a guests experience, provided we are given the opportunity. We have to reassure all Trip Advisor readers that it is unfortunate that Linda and company did not... More

Noisy floors - request top floor. They say it has been renovated. Scary to think what it must have looked like before. Good location but Nanaimo is looking tired and rundown - no west coast vibe. Nice waterfront but boring scene. Decent basic breakfast. Close to ferry.

Overall, our short stay at the Travelodge Nanaimo was a success. We arrived in the middle of the night due to complications with another hotel we were staying at in the area, and were greeted with friendly and accommodating service. Rooms were clean, and well equipped with nice flatscreen televisions and very comfortable beds. Continental breakfast in the morning was... More

We chanced to stop at the Travelodge during our trip around Vancouver Island. The girl at the desk was friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful. Although all rooms are non smoking each has a little patio or balcony where you can go out and smoke. There are two chairs and it was quiet and great place to enjoy the... More

Staying for just 2 nights in nanaimo, the travelodge was perfect. All staff was extremely friendly and helpful, continental breakfast offered a lot of options. Room was clean and comfortable - the only thing I would change is a loud bathroom fan. Close to the water for a stroll, places to eat and a convenience store right across the parking... More
