This is a very clean and well cared for property. The staff are friendly and accommodating. We were so excited to be right on the lake with the options to kayak, paddle board of SUP. Overall a great experience for us at this hotel.

We chose the Inn at Long Lake as the accommodation provider for my father's 75th birthday weekend. We chose it partly due to the proximity to the Wellington Hall where we held the party on the Saturday night. We had guests from Holland, the US, Alberta and BC, all of which have raved about the Inn. The staff were incredibly... More

The toilet overflowed in our room and water flowed into hall. At no time did manager offer other room in fact he said that no other family room was available. Front staff found us a room they were great. Also sofa bed in room 317 is just a pile of springs. Clean room lovely location. Nicegrounds but currently overrun by... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property Mo G. It was an unfortunate incident with the toilet becoming plugged on your second day in the room. While I don’t think I said that there was not another family suite available, I do admit that I was at the time more concerned with dealing with the more relevant... More

This Inn is right beside the main island highway, but it was quiet at night. The Inn sits at one end of Long Lake at North end of Nanaimo and provides gorgeous views at evening, night and morning breakfasts. I saw a beaver swimming by in the evening and the nunerous canada geese were vocal and playful. I've seen thousands... More

Thank you YYZ-RiskMgr. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are indeed close to the highway, but the hotel was designed so that EVERY room faces the lake, not the road. This design really means that there is almost no road noise affecting any of our guests. It also means that every room has a balcony... More

My Wife and I spent a most enjoyable Anniversary long weekend in Nanaimo thanks to the Inn on Long Lake. Clean, comfortable room with all the conveniences. Nice large balcony overlooking the Lake. Great breakfast and coffee facilities. Close to the local Shopping Malls and within easy reach of some really nice Restaurants.

Enjoyed our 2 night stay, wished we could have stayed longer. Well appointed rooms, make sure and ask for a 3rd floor room which have balconies you can relax on. The breakfast was quite nice with many selections to choose from.

We've stayed here a few times and will continue to return. The setting is gorgeous (all rooms are lakeside), the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Paddle boats and kayaks to explore the lake, or just take in the scenery from your patio or deck. It's heaven for a dog, with ample grounds to... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. We called late in the day to get a room for the night, and they were very accommodating. We had a fairly large room with a view of the lake and a nice balcony. It was very quiet for sleeping, even though the Island Hwy. is fairly close by. The room was spotless and... More

We have stayed here a few times and will keep coming back because of the location and room amenities. The hotel is getting a little older, but is still clean, quiet and comfortable. We love waking up to have coffee on the balcony and spending a little quiet time down on the dock. We have never tried the breakfast because... More
