“Great location”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We there for the BC summer games. The location was great.
Close to fields , restaurants and a very short walk to the water.
The breakfast was decent , more then enough to start your day.The rooms on the backside of the hotel were spacious and quiet.
The staff are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Back side of hotel,the road out front is quite busy .

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review for Travelodge Nanaimo.

As you mention, our hotel is ideally located close to Downtown, within short distance to shops and restaurants, the aquatic centre and sports fields, and directly across from the waterfront boardwalk.

Our continental breakfast is complimentary and includes a wide variety of offerings. Our waffle maker is popular and we also have fresh muffins, bagels, toast, cereals with milk, yogurt, fresh fruit, juices and tea and coffee.

All our staff take great pride in providing excellent service, from breakfast staff, housekeeping and front desk.

Thank you for choosing Travelodge Nanaimo for your accommodation needs and we look forward to hosting you again in the near future.

We stayed at the Travelodge for two nights and were very pleased with our stay. We stayed on the third floor which does have an elevator (no elevator to second floor). The continental breakfast had a reasonable choice of items and was well looked after by staff. Our room was clean, comfortable and modern. The motel is very close to the ocean and city amenities.

Team Phoenix from Victoria, stays at the Travelodge every year for the Nanaimo Dragon Boat festival and we love this hotel! From the clean rooms, to the great breakfast, to the friendly staff, it is an all around great place to stay. It is nice and convenient and Michelle at the front desk is wonderful! She always takes good care of us, and is very efficient and super friendly. She is one of the reasons that we stay here every year:) We are already looking forward to coming back next year! See you in 2015 Michelle:)

Room Tip: The backside of the hotel is a bit quieter, on a back street.

Thank you Team Phoenix for staying with Travelodge Nanaimo once again this year and we very much appreciate your review. We value your comments on the cleanliness of our rooms. Our housekeepers are a hard working team who take pride in providing a high standard.

Our breakfast is quite extensive, featuring fresh fruit, an assortment of muffins and cereals, bagels, yoghurt, boiled eggs, fruit juice and tea and coffee. You can also make your own fresh waffles.

I will let Michelle know how much you appreciate her customer service and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.

This place is nothing special at all. But it is not bad either and the front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The hotel is well situated to restaurants, downtown, the waterfront and a Husky convenience store.

But one thing we didn't like is it does not have an elevator. We had to haul six large suitcases up stairs. Not so great.

The value is excellent though for the price.

We appreciate your review of Travelodge Nanaimo.

We truly believe our hotel offers excellent value for money as you mention. Our rooms have been updated, with new beds and large flat-screen TV's. Each room has a microwave and good sized fridge, and a deluxe continental breakfast, free WIFI and parking is included in your stay.

We are sorry for the inconvenience you experienced taking your luggage to the second floor. We are always happy to assist with luggage should you require. We do have an elevator to the third floor. We try to confirm our guests needs to the best of our ability and are also more than happy to accommodate requests for a specific floor when possible.

Thank you for choosing Travelodge Nanaimo and we hope we can host you again in the future.

On a recent transit through Nanaimo this Travelodge was a good stopping off point. Front desk service was friendly and helpful. Particular thanks to Lisa who went the extra mile to tell us about the lovely harbourside walk accessible across the road from the hotel. Sure the room decor needs modernising but you can't fault the substantial breakfast on offer. All in all a good stayiver when touring the island. Apparently some use it as a base fir tiuring as well.

Dear Valued Guest

Thank you so much for your review.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We have a great team here and believe in providing the highest caliber of service to our entire guests.

Our breakfast is not your typical continental breakfast your right, we like the idea of providing a wide variety of food for our guests to choose from. We even have noticed it’s become quite popular with the waffle maker being added.

I will let Lisa know about your compliment that you have posted and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Regards,
Monique

I had to work in Nanaimo for two days and there was a large convention in downtown so needed an alternative site. It was slightly away from core but in close enough proximity to restaurants and the ocean. The check in staff were warm and welcoming. The hotel is a little tired but essentially clean. I would stay here again

We were just booked in for the one night on our way to Tofino. Found the front desk ladies fun and great help. The location to the walkway into town was across the street and was a quick beautiful walk to the downtown. The rooms were clean and comfortable and quiet and found it very reasonable price wise.
