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...

We stayed in Nanaimo for an event and chose this hotel because of how central it was to everything. It's very clean and comfortable, and has a great view. The hot tub is large enough for you and your friends and is far enough from the rooms so you don't hear much, but it would be nice if it was... More

I stayed there with my kids and while the room was being cleaned my ipad air went missing. We actually came to the room while it was being cleaned and told the girl (one of 3) not to worry about doing the pillows since we brought our own. She was standing next to my ipad on the night stand because... More

Where do I start is right. I am sorry that you misplaced your Ipad, and that your children were afraid to admit that they had placed it in your suitcase. I was present when it was located in your suitcase. In spite of your comments, the staff had left the floor, and your room door was closed until you opened... More

We were delayed a few hours after our arrival picking up our rental car. To late for a long drive to tofino. Lucky to find this gem of a hotel which helped us out and with a good price. Right across from Mcdonalds which was a life saver after traveling 10hrs with 3 little ones.
