Great location classic old hotel”

A good choice due to location and friendly staff. Parking tickets issued immediately by city of Nanaimo so run back to your car with a pass upon arrival. This is an old hotel with creaky floors, meandering hallways and dirty windows. Don't ask for help with your bags as there isn't anyone available. However, friendly staff and a nice restaurant combined with the location make it a place I have stayed many times. I'm sure I will be back again!

The only complaint I had was with my initial attempt to reserve through Best western reservation desk in the USA. They were useless & told me no accommodation was available when it obviously was thus my booking through AGODA!

The desk clerk was helpful in dealing with my early check in. The hotel is old but in general clean and fresh. I took advantage of a room service offer to have breakfast pre-ordered with various delivery times offered. I checked the 06:00-06:30 am time. Unfortunately the breakfast was over an hour late and I almost turned it down but I had just enough time to eat. The food was ok, not great. When mentioned to the desk clerk on checking out apologies were said, no eye contact and no offer for discount or charges removed. I was under the impression then that this was business as usual.

Stayed here before and thought it great value. Levi at the front desk is just excellent and knowledgeable . As it is on the main street (and across from the park and ocean as well) it can be noisy BUT the airconditioning can compensate. Really like it at this hotel. The Lindsays

You can find better hotel”

Hotel cleaning is not that good. You can find blood spot at the duvet. Nightstand has a lot of stains. And bathroom is not well maintained and cleaned.

최고의 위치”

전망 있는 방향의 방을 선택하시면 정말 좋습니다. 다 좋았는데 딱 한가지. 주차가 어렵네요. 주차장이 아주 협소해서 외부 주차장에 차를 대어 놓고 와야 합니다. 호텔앞에서 짐을 내리고 체크인 하시고 다시 차로 돌아와서 조금가다 우회전 그리고 또 우회전해서 호텔건물 뒷편으로 가시면 호텔 주차장이 있습니다. 빈자리가 없으면 가던 방향으로 한 20미터 더 가시면 우측에 P표시가 있는 퍼블릭파킹이 있습니다 거기 차를 대시고 주차권을 24시간짜리.9달러 로 끊고 표하단의 영수증 부분만 따로 때어서 프론트 데스크에 제출하시면 9달러를 드립니다. 결과적으로 추가비용은 없고 조금만 불편한거 빼면 저렴한 가격에 최고의 뷰를 보실 수 있어서 가성비갑 호텔로 추천합니다.

服务贴心但是酒店有异味”

地点很方便

第一次住这个酒店,处于市中心,到海岸和shopping mall都只有五分钟的脚程。服务也很温馨,但是整个酒店进入就有一种异味,好像是地毯的霉味,房间里也很厉害,一个晚上都开窗还是有些味道,房间很小,所以晚上到casino玩到很晚,到casino也很近,走路五分钟。可免费泊车。
