I booked a bed in the Value Lodge Backpackers Hostel. Sounds like a nice place to stay as a backpacker. I arrived after a long walk to discover I stay at a Motel. Ok, let's just check it out before I judge. As I entered the room, I saw a motel room with four bunkbeds: stuffed up together with no... More

Booked 2 days here and I will never again stay at this motel. Pros: Office and other staff were very good. Helpful Beds were comfortable and bedding was clean. We were a leery of trying the attached restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised. Older but clean. We would go there again. Cons: Remodelling is basic. Kitchenette is older cabinets, bar... More

Looks as cheap as the price. TV doesn't work and it was cracked. No garbage containers anywhere in the room. No staff at the office after 10pm. Don't recommend this place based on our experience after driving 8+ hours plus a ferry ride over here. Looked forward to a relaxing night, but wasn't the case.

Stopped into this motel on the way to Tofino and had a great experience with my girlfriend. I had stayed here previously before a few years ago and its much different then the last time. The room was clean and well organized. I didn't expect to have a LCD TV in the room for the price we were paying but... More

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
