I have recently moved to Naniamo and needed a place to stay for a month. This place fit the bill. It's reasonable priced, I have a kitchenette a bedroom and a full bathroom, I also have a small sitting area. It's like a small apartment, great deal for shiot term. The place is clean and it's rather quite considering it's... More

Our third budget hotel in three days. Pros: clean, big tv, fridge, microwave, real coffee, near the ferry terminal and waterfront. Cons: the usual too cold or too hot room, low water pressure, and widely varying shower temperature. Not many food choices within walking distance. Better than last nights anyway for only a few dollars more.

Needs an upgrade. Our room layout was really good with a separate bedroom and a sink outside of the bathroom. The kitchenette was functional yet needed more implements. The staff was friendly but our floor was dirty - don't go barefoot. Lots of people hanging around all day outside. Smoking seats in front of our room used by others. Good... More

For the price, I didn't expect too much. The WiFi signal was pretty strong. I originally wanted to stay one night, but I had to stay a 2nd.. the owner asked "Do you need your room serviced?". I was like... "uhhhh..."... I felt awkward if I said yes. They did change my towels though (Umm, yay). If you go in... More

We stayed here one night in transition from the Island to the mainland. I was disappointed with the difference between the online photos and what we actually stayed in! The room was outdated and in need of paint! There were holes in the wall and the floors had hair on them that did not belong to us! Definitely not a... More

Rooms were ok large and Recently reno'd. One of us was sure her sheets were not clean. Building was gross. Bulging ashtrays out side our rooms. Smell of Marijuana everywhere and chain smoking incompetent Inn keeper. Go somewhere else.

They were able to accommodate us last minute and are conveniently located next to the ferry terminal. We stayed in a room with a full kitchenette, living room and two beds. It was old fashioned, nothing fancy. It was however clean and quiet so can't complain.

I was in the Vancouver Islands with my family, so we decided to stay at this place. The price is good but the customer service and the conditions are ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. So we walk into our "first" room and my mom lays on the bed after a long 12 hour drive and a few moments later we notice the bathroom... More

Good price, clean rooms and friendly staff. The location is great - lots of restaurants near by, close to the ferry and the inner harbour. Very easy to find. Would definitely recommend it for the price.
