I chose this BW hotel for my 2 day business trip to Nanaimo based on 4.0 review on TripAdvisor. Not many pros if any at all: - Good TV - In room safe - Ice machine is by reception (so it's not making noise next to my door) - Nice yard garden (but not in front of the hotel) Here... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here 9 years ago and it's still as good now. It's super clean, efficient, generous. Great location. It's across from Superstore and Cobbs bread. Beds are comfortable and fresh. The staff was friendly and flexible. They were very accommodating and the breakfast was a hot meal. Spot on.

Clean, newly renovated, nice room size, friendly and efficient staff. The breakfast was enjoyable. This hotel is located in the north end of Nanaimo but close to a number of malls and within walking distance of restaurants. Best of all, it is pet friendly.

Chose this hotel primarily for decent accommodation at a reasonable price for recent visit with family in both Nanaimo and Parksville. Excellent location for our purposes, located in North Nanaimo adjacent to the Island Highway (but separated by a treed area). Good free, full daily breakfast, well patronized by guests. Hotel was quiet and clean, with friendly and helpful staff.... More

We use this Best Western at least annually for business because of the location. It delivers what I expect for this price-point and type of hotel. It's a bit older but it has been well maintained over the years. It used to have a pub/restaurant in the hotel (closed - just a breakfast area) but there are several restaurants within... More

I enjoyed the stay at this hotel because we were given a room that was both spacious and quiet, and the atmosphere was both welcoming and relaxed. The hotel is located in the northern part of Nanaimo.

This is a good value hotel. Not fancy but everything is in good shaper and working order. The staff is very nice at this hotel. It is located nicely at the north end of Nanaimo and is quite. The price for the room is why I say it is good value.

Clean, friendly, newer hotel, with fluffy towels, a cheerful and helpful staff, with a good breakfast included. It is a bit north of the city center from Nanaimo, but near many convenient restaurants, convenience stores, etc, and out of the hub-bub of downtown Nanaimo. If you have a car it is much easier to park here and drive into the... More

It is an okay okay hotel. The staff is friendly. The free breakfast is good - sausages , eggs, scrambled eggs, waffles , breads , jams , cereal , fruits etc. The carpets in the hallways and the elevator are very dated. The housekeeping folks for some reason were leaving just 3 bathing towels instead of 4. Of the 4... More

We would like to thank 833gauravd for their review. We are very sorry about the experience with the towels and that is very frustrating and not to our high standards. We have brought forward their concern to our Housekeeping Manager. In our experience we compare pretty favourably against other Best Western properties. With three core tiers including Best Western Plus... More

We did ask for a quiet room, but the traffic noise was terrible. Maybe it would have been even worse in other rooms! Couldn't turn the fridge off as the dial just spun and no power point. On the plus side, the room was clean, the king bed comfortable, the shower great and the room was quite large and the... More

We would like to thank our guest for their review and we are sorry about the problem with the refrigerator dial and that the noise was not to their expectations. If you choose a hotel that is "far away" from wherever you wanted to be - That is not our fault. Most guests choose us for our great location in... More
