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

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

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

Thank you for taking a few moments to review our hotel. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay, and took time to enjoy the hot tub. It is awesome being able to relax in the hot tub, with a great view over Long Lake-such a great way to end the day! We do keep it open to 10:30... 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

Thank you Rob S for this wonderful review! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I think you have covered most of our amenities-from free (and fast!) Wi-Fi to kayak and pedal boat rentals.

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.

Thank you Jorge S for your wonderful review. I know all too well how stressful travelling can be, and I am so glad that we were able to provide a comfortable place for you and your family to relax after a long day. I personally find it very calming being right beside our beautiful little lake. Did the little ones... More

With easy room access, every room with a lake view and the included continental breakfast, this location was a steal for the peak-season cost with free parking. Centrally located for our travel purposes. Minutes from anything and everything. Our room had two very comfortable queen beds with side bedding and amazing pillows. There was plenty of room for the playpen,... More

Thank you for the wonderful review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I agree, we have a great location-both the beauty and peace of being right on the lake shore, and being handy to transportation and amenities of the City. I do apologize about the plumbing. It is aging, but we are replacing it all later... More

After staying at a very nice Harbor hotel in Victoria where we were awakened each morning at 5:30 by docking boats, it was nice to be overlooking a quiet lake instead. The double queen bed room was very spacious and the balcony overlooking the lake was a treat. We arrived in the late afternoon and rented a paddle boat which... More

Thank you, jcatharine, for the wonderful review. I am glad that you found it so relaxing and comfortable. We feel very lucky to have such a beautiful setting we can share with our guests.

Thank you for the wonderful review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I do have to correct two points though. While we encourage everyone to "read the fine print", there is NO CHARGE for the newspaper delivered to your room daily-never has been, and never will be. And, we have not one, but two elevators serving the upper... More
