We stayed at the Best Western Dorchester in Nanaimo for one night on Sept 20. We arrived before check-in time, and our room was ready. We paid the extra for the Harbourview room, because we heard the other rooms were ridiculously tiny. It was a nice view, but we were only on the 2nd floor, so a higher floor would have been better. The hotel is nothing fancy and the layout to get to our room was a bit odd. But the room was a decent size and it was clean. The location was great! Literally steps to the harbour. We just walked across the street, went down a few set of stairs and we were on the boardwalk. We took the ferry to the Dinghy Dock Pub, and really enjoyed that. We had planned to rent some kayaks from Alberni Outpost, but they were already closed for the season. We were disappointed, because the water was so calm in Nanaimo Harbour. All in all, the hotel was a great spot to stay for one night. It was walking distance to restaurants and shops. We had no issues at all.
