Reviewed 18 June 2014

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.

We decided to stay the night at Travelodge based on the reviews but when we arrived we decided to go somewhere else. There were people in the lobby unpacking on the floor and some sketchy looking people hanging around. We waited for 10 minutes for someone to appear at the front desk and when someone finally came, they had no interest in helping us. Actually told us that the taxi will be coming soon.
Will not be going there anytime soon.

We did not intend to have a luxury hotel experience at the Travelodge Nanaimo. We were coming in on a late ferry and the location was right at the terminal. We were leaving for our destination first thing in the morning and breakfast began at 6 AM. If you choose to stay here, be prepared for a possibly lumpy bed, a bathroom door that may stick and make the cartoon wobbly sound when you pull on it to open it, and for inadequate air circulation (cracking a window really didn't improve things for us). Breakfast was fine. Again, it is what you expect to get given the cost of the accommodation. Therefore, if you are a sound sleeper, not picky, and need a roof over your head and a little breakfast in your tummy the following morning, stay at the Travelodge in Nanaimo. If you need a few more frills, look elsewhere.

We were glad that this hotel accepted pets and were welcomed with a goody bag so we were feeling good about our choice. We wanted to pay with debit but of course had to provide a visa and the hold was put on for the room total...not a problem and were assured that it would be removed when we checked out...we specifically asked this. Checking into the room we were a little surprised at. Old chipped side tables, one sitting chair that had worn spots on the arm, no desk to work if you had both a computer and papers, virtually no character to the room. There was a big empty spot that looked like it might have had another chair or something so it looked rather odd. Again I understand it was a pet room but our friend also stayed and the rooms were night and day...same price only we paid $15 more. Good enough sleep, breakfast was ok. Checking out we paid by debit .... that night when we got home the hold was still on my visa, so we phoned and were jtold 3 business days. So we are feeling like we paid twice for a room we would not have stayed at had we known the quality. Would not stay there again or recommend it to anyone we know.
