I spent a week there in October and in was perfect. From the motel we have easy access to highway and we have been visiting a lot around. From Qualicum to Cowichan Lake, we do a lot of nature adventure. The money we save at this motel allow us to do more on the Island. The room was clean, smell... More

I recently stayed at the Value lodge August of 2013. I have been there once before in 2009. The difference is night and day. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, They were extremely accommodating with letting me know what their was to do in the sleepy town of Nanaimo. From restaurants to bars, they even let me know about... More

Needed a cheap place for one night so didn't have high expectations. What I do expect is cleanliness. Yuck. There was a long black hair in the shower, layers of dust behind the nightstand, and something black in the bed, so I slept on top. On the good side, the bed was comfortable, the microwave, fridge and coffee maker were... More

The location on the highway and the rates were a draw but there is a core of long term residents that are foul mouthed and noisy - I would not recommend this for a family or a sensitive person. The desk service was good and meant well but... room had that "old motel" smell. there are numerous affordable options within... More

I woke up to use the toilet as my wife was showering. The chain in the tank broke and I pulled it manual and the bathroom flooded. Dirty place.

My business always rely on travelling and when it comes to "Travelling" you would want to stay at the decent accommodation since you are away from home, right? however, this place can be described as just "Horrible". They are advertising now everywhere that they are under the new management and doing all kinds of renovation which I've spoken to the... More

Do yourself a favour and camp under a bridge before you even consider staying here. In the middle of the night I had to call the police after hearing shouting and a door kicked in. Then I had to leave the motel as the police told me that this was not a safe place to stay. Of course I paid... More
