By far one of the top Best Western Hotels I have stayed at. If I have to travel to Nanaimo for business I always stay at this hotel. Lots of parking, close to many stores and restaurants, and the breakfast is great.

Hotel's Favourite
I was so excited when we walked into our room, it was newly renovated and tastefully decorated. There was an armchair and footstool also a moveable small table to put my drink on. My compliments to whoever designed the rooms, my biggest beef with hotels is that they often don’t

Newly decorated/updated. Only down side is no lounge or swimming pool. Nice clean rooms, good Wifi. This hotel was close to work, shopping is a 5 minute walk away. Fitness centre across the road if you need.

My wife and I enjoy going for sight seeing trips. We go to get out of our house and see the beauty that is around us and make side trips to see our family. We choose the Best Western when possible because they provide the comfort and care we need.

My son and I were caught in a snow storm when our car broke down on the highway in Nanaimo. We found the BW was the closest hotel so we made our way there. The staff were amazing and gave us an emergency kit with a toothbrush, comb, mouthwash etc. They tended to our every need

Is the hotel walking distance to woodgrove mall ? Any bus stops to VIU near the hotel ? Thanks
Thank you twinklemelody for your query. Yes, the hotel is within walking distance of Woodgrove Centre Mall as well as a number of other retail locations in north Nanaimo. There is a bus stop just opposite the hotel that services the route to VIU as well as another bus route that goes to downtown Nanaimo. The bus to VIU (#15) runs approximately once an hour every day except Sundays. There is also one of the city's primary bus exchanges at Woodgrove Centre Mall with access to multiple bus routes. Thank you again for your inquiry.

Thank you Becky D, for your query. As of February 2014 our restaurant and pub were closed. However we do still serve our complimentary continental breakfast to our guests in the restaurant facility. The official Best Western website will have the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding any Best Western property and we recommend it as the primary source for reservations and hotel information. Unfortunately there are many sites which we have no control over the accuracy or updating of information. Thank you again for your inquiry.

does it have a kitchen in the room
Hello thanks for your question. All of our rooms have refrigerators and microwaves. We also have 11 rooms equipped with basic kitchenettes which include a stove top, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and kettle. Our kitchenette rooms are a separate room category, and the descriptions should specify which is a kitchenette.

"inner rooms that face the court yard are great"
"higher level r quieter because the breakfast room is on the second floor"
"Shop around or try to get a deal, otherwise it's too expensive"
"We were on the first floor and once you closed the sliding doors the room was very quiet."
"Not room 327 at the back close to highway, need triple glazing to keep out noise"
US$107 - US$194 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
