We chose to stay at the Best Western Northgate Inn because of it's close proximity to the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) Offices. We were participating in a two day course and the convenience of staying within walking distance of our daily destination was very important. We also booked on our Best Western points and received a complementary room...

Located well for us as we were headed north to Comox but a little far from City Centre if that's where you want to be. We did find the highway noise a little disturbing but should have expected that as it was located on the Island Highway. Rooms were very clean and comfortable and well supplied! Again, breakfast supplied was...

We would like to thank liz169 for their review. Some guests may find the highway to be a little disturbing. We often recommend to guests who may be light sleepers to request a quiet room. It's good advice when travelling in general as many hotels do their best to honour such requests. Although we can't guarantee all requests we do...

This is a great hotel with quiet and comfortable rooms with very well appointed kitchenette. This hotel is within walking distance to grocery shopping, liquor store and a excellent Thai and take out pizza restaurant. The front desk staff were very friendly, professional and accommodating. Careful to set the refrigerator in the room to 1! Setting 2 froze all my...

We would like to thank Markos2013 for their review. Our apologies with the sensitive temperature on our kitchenette refrigerators. These units will be getting renovated this fall and the all-in-one units will be replaced. Our non-kitchenette rooms all have newer bar fridges that aren't so sensitive.

This hotel was chosen based on reviews and the location. We were touring the island and this location turned out to be an excellent choice for our 2 night stay in the Nanaimo area. Very easy to find and only a short drive from the ferry. It is located in "suburbia" but it is so handy for any shopping and...

We would like to thank marbella50 for their very detailed review of our property. The location is a very good description and we are certainly located in a suburban area of Nanaimo close to Woodgrove shopping Centre. Many guests use us as a stopping point and as an 'in-between' location for Downtown Nanaimo and Parksville/ Qualicum Beach. I'm glad they...

This place was sparkling clean and quiet and one of the few hotels with computers which actually work (they actually had two such computers in the well-lit lobby). The staff were incredibly helpful with everything. What stands out was the cleanthiness of the hotel and the aesthetics.
