We frequently come to Nanaimo for great shopping, and family visits as well. There is lots of choice in this city but really, there is no choice if you want great value, clean and friendly comfortable place to stay - It is always going to be this hotel for us. It has an amazing location, right on the lake -... More

Originally from Nanaimo but now live out of town. We stayed at the inn for a close friends' nearby wedding in the summer of 2014. We were honestly shocked by the quality/cleanliness of the rooms, they're decently modern, very clean and well-appointed. We chose a ground floor suite because we wanted easy lake access (Long Lake is a really nice... More

We were so impressed with Inn on Long Lake last time that we decided to stay again. This time it was the end of summer (last days of August). We only stayed for one night but took time for a walk around the lake. I discovered some older gentlemen sailing their radio controlled boats and was offered the opportunity to... More

We found this hotel on the road out of Nanaimo when we hadn't found a nice location in the city. We were welcomed at reception and given a good room rate. We had a wonderful hour in the cabana where the hot tub and sauna are and then appreciated the complementary biscuits and drinks in the reception area. The receptionist... More

The Inn on Long Lake is a long standing stop for Tour de Rock - Cops for Cancer. Every year this establishment welcomes this group of over 30 persons with a red carpet. James and his crew ensure that the tired and hungry riders are comfortable by offering their cozy and spacious rooms for the riders and support crew. Nothing... More

We spent a night at the Inn on Long Lake in September. It was raining and dark when we arrived. After a long drive and a ferry ride, we were pretty tired. The staff at the hotel were very kind and helpful. They got us checked in quickly and provided us with some suggestions on where to eat, as well... More

I came to Nanaimo for a work trip, and our company couldn't have chosen a better place! Our days started off with a simple, yet great complimentary breakfast, and after working 10-12 hour days, it was great to come back to the hotel and be able to just relax out on the patio or dock. The rooms were clean and... More

Thank you Brianne H. I am glad we were able to be a bit of a refuge for you to come home to after some long and challenging days at work. Business these days can be very challenging for all of us, and we need to unwind a little at the end of the day. I always find the lake... More

The Inn on Long Lake was a wonderful experience while staying in Nanimo British Columbia, Canada. Every room faces the lake with door access from the street side. Complimentary breakfast with an inside and an outside patio area. Two docks go out into the lake and paddle boats and kayaks are available to rent. The weather was splendid and a... More

Thank you Wayne! We are indeed a resort in the City. It is very unusual to find a lakefront resort with walking distance of shopping, movie theatres, restaurants, as well as being close to businesses. We can't take credit for the weather, but we did a beautiful summer, and being able to get out on the water in one of... More

Great place to stay! They are very supportive of the local junior football team VI Raiders. This is one of the reasons we stayed there! View is great and relaxing. The only issue is the smoking. They need a smoking area by the parking lot instead of allowing people to smoke on the balcony or grass grounds. Makes a non... More

The Inn on Long Lake is in a beautiful location, the rooms are bright and spacious, the staff are awesome and the hot tub is in a separate cabana that makes it seem like you're in some tropical paradise. The rooms are in good shape and all have a great view of the lake. The staff are very friendly and... More

Thanks chilary! We are so pleased that you enjoyed for stay with us. I have to admit, I love the waffles too. Summer is coming to an end, so we will be storing away the paddleboards, kayaks, and pedal boats for the winter soon, but they will be back on the water next spring. But, the lake is beautiful and...
