The first thing you notice about this hotel is that is old fashioned. Nothing wrong with this, but some people might be turned off. That's not to say that the rooms were moldy or gross. They were reasonably clean. However, I did find a band aid behind the couch and there was a bottle cap beside the bed. Nothing awful, but the room could've have a more thorough cleaning. We stayed in a big room with a queen bed. There was also a sofabed. Didn't unfold it, but it seemed fine. One thing to note is there is no elevator, but it's only 3 stories with the lobby on the second, so you'll only be ascending or descending one flight of stairs from the check in desk. Sleep quality was fine, staff was very friendly, and the price was right. Also, there's nothing much to do right around the hotel, it's a few minutes to downtown Nanaimo. Didn't go in the pool, but it seemed clean. Solid choice for someone on a budget.
