“Solid hotel, nothing fancy here but a good sleep”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights while in the area visiting family. We were attracted to the central location, new construction and the affordable price. Having stayed at all the major hotels in the area, I'm pretty sure this is the only one we will return to. We book a jacuzzi suite with King sized bed, room 212, and we very happy. The room faced the back of the hotel (quieter) and was at the far end of the hall, away from the elevator. I am a very light sleeper, and slept blissfully all 4 nights. The room was huge, although sparsely furnished (no couch, just two wing back chairs and a side table) was comfortable for us, with a very decent quality mattress. We found the room, property and parking lot to be very clean, and when asked for extra blankets, towels were accommodated right away by a friendly staff.

The nice extras include ; a hot , free breakfast bar with sausage patties, waffle maker etc. (with bonus points for the massive tub of Nutella!), free, ample parking and free Wifi. We will book our next stay to Nanaimo at this property and would recommend staying here, as its a pretty decent place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 212 was very quiet, and jacuzzi tub was a nice treat

Overall, hotel is very good. We have stayed there before, and most likely will again. Continental breakfast is somewhat better than what we normally experience in other chain hotels'

The hotel is well located and easy to find. Employees at the front desk are very professional and helpful. The first impression is of a clean quiet hotel. We had a seniors' rate, which made the room, more affordable. Big room with 2 queen size beds, lots of pillows clean washroom, good showerhead, new shower curtain. Room has a mini fridge, coffee/tea/a safe for valuables and free WiFi. Continental breakfast is included and starts at 6:00 am. I would definitely stay there again. The only thing I notices was the lack of wine glasses. The hotel only provides cardboard disposable cups. Too bad because when you want a glass of wine it does not taste the same in a cardboard glass.

Room Tip: Up on the 4th floor away from the elevators is where we were located but the hotel is very quiet in...

My friends and I had a decent stay at this Ramada. The staff was very friendly and helpful. For a hotel in a small town, this one is not bad at all. The only complaint I had was the smell around that area in Nanaimo. The smell was generated from a pulp and paper factory nearby. There wasn’t anything the hotel could do about it. It wasn’t their fault.

After reading some postings on Trip Advisor, we were very careful about our belongings and did not leave any items in the car. There was no issue.

Location was good. There were a lot of restaurants nearby and it’s a short drive from the Duke Point ferry terminal.

Breakfast was good. It had good coffee.

I would stay there again if I go back.
