This is a lovely Inn right off Island Highway close to shopping and surprisingly quiet. And I mean REALLY quiet! There were lots of cars so I’m sure there were a lot of people staying here but you don’t hear them. It’s clean and nicely appointed but doesn’t feel like a big hotel. The motel style gives everyone a balcony overlooking the lake. No restaurant/bar which probably accounts for some of the quiet but they have a decent continental breakfast with good coffee and they do have a selection of packaged food if you arrive late and hungry. There are lots of good restaurants within a few minutes drive. Definitely will stay again. Picture is the view from our room.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed here on business but were very pleased with the peacefulness of the setting. The room was quiet, balcony was private and there was no one in the gym, hot tub or sauna while we were there. It was an easy walk around to a beach on the lake as well. great place to unwind! Good sleep too.

Thank you TaraT760. It is nice being able to unwind after a hard day of work, and I think being by the lake makes it much easier to do.I am glad you were able to enjoy our facilities while you were with us. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Nanaimo. Thank You, James Young General Manager

Coming through a rainstorm looking for a place near the ferry terminal. Though we have passed this hotel many times, this time we stopped. So glad we did. Lovely clean fresh room. Very comfortable bed, room faced the lake (they all do) away from traffic. Extremely quiet!! Excellent complimentary breakfast this am!! Would definitely recommend this place!!!

A group of us stayed here following Foamfest. We rented the conference room for our after party and were booked in rooms in same floor (3rd) The room was ok for what we needed and we had access to the balcony that overlooked the lake. A stunning view. Our room was huge. We booked a double queen which was spacious and clean. A nice touch was 3 chairs inside as well as 2 on the balcony. Our room also overlooked the lake. I was most impressed with the complimentary breakfast. Make your own waffles cereal fruit etc is the standard fair. Pastries were fresh and the staff kept everything stocked and tidy. The best part was that they used real dishes and not cheap disposable. There is a lovely patio off the main dining area to sit outside. We also noted 2 barbecues, paddle boards and boats that I believe they rent. I will definitely return and highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed for a night with family. Excellent front desk service,the room was very clean, and beds were good. Our room came with a balcony that overlooks the lake which was nice. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was just right, enough variety for young and old...its a small area, but when the summer days are here you can be seated outside for your breaky. Enjoy your stay.
