This was the first time 2 of us stayed here for 3 nights. It was an easy check in and out by very friendly helpful staff. They quickly answered questions and gave maps and advice on where to go eat. The location is great to walk downtown and to the water front. The White Spot restaurant is next door and... More

... But the rooms are not particularly clean:(. They are trying to present as a modern clean midrange hotel and have put some effort and money into the hotel, but it doesn't quite work. Was nice they are pet friendly. Good location.

I was there for one night on my way from Victoria to Ucluelet on Mar 2, 2015. The front desk girl, Lisa, was absolutely amazing, she upgraded me to a room with harbour views for free as the hotel was not very busy. She was also very helpful with advice on where to eat and go out. There's a list... More

What can I say. I've stayed here a lot and I am dissapointed that the tv channels have been cut back. Especially since the wifi is really bad here. Also, the tv remotes have been locked so you can't adjust the volume. In some rooms the volume is way to loud and in others too quiet.

The Travelodge Nanaimo is a great older motel located close to the Ferry Terminal. So if you need to catch a morning ferry to Vancouver this is a good and handy place to stay. The motel is older and has no elevator and is fairly well maintained. The rooms are comfortable and the WiFi was good. We had a fridge,... More
