This is an excellent facility - the rooms are spacious, well appointed and impeccably clean - the icing on the cake is that all rooms face beautiful Long Lake - I spent much time on the private balcony attached to my room, enjoying the ambiance and view. It felt very luxurious even though I was there for business.

Room Tip: The room was awesome - it is a bit tricky to gain access to the hotel if coming from the North - it would be beneficial if the Inn had a sign at the corner immediately to the north of the hotel, directing guests to the service road from there.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I cannot think of a greater compliment that you could pay us than to say that you wanted to stay longer. We have many business travellers stay with us, and we recognize that even if you are on business you want (and some days need) a relaxing environment to "come home to", and be able to unwind and relax. The free hi speed internet and Continental breakfast are just a portion of the experience.
We look forward to seeing you back at our Inn on your next visit to Nanaimo. Hopefully, you will be able to stay longer!

we booked into here after a late arrival on b.c. ferries.it is an excellent place to stay.had a room facing the lake- I think they all do..we were on the ground floor-lovely place for morning coffee.they provide a continental breakfast-which had a decent selection of cerels/breads/bagels,etc.I was in Nanaimo previously and stayed downtown for the same $$$ at the (Dorchester)what a contrast from( a five star rating for the inn on the lake) to a bomb of a stay at the Dorchester..pick this one-very happy.

Room Tip: I like the ground level..green grass ,trees and lake at your doorstep.great stay

I am so glad that you found us, and that you had such a great stay. You are absolutely right-all the rooms do have a view of the water. It's such a nice view, whether on the main floor, with the ability to walk directly out to the lawns, or higher up for a little more "panoramic" view. You can't go wrong either way, in my opinion.
We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Nanaimo!
Thank you.

Upon arrival we didn't realize there was an Elevator to the 3rd floor. Found it the next day. Ask at desk for the location. Room was very clean, spacious and well equipped with coffee pot, sink, refrigerator, dish towels and all the little extras. There was a nice balcony with a couple chairs and a nice view of Long Lake. It was nice and quiet. The Continental Breakfast the next day was great. Cereals,fruit, juices, muffins, bread/toaster waffle maker jams and jellies.
Def. would recommend this Inn and would def. return.
Staff was very helpful with directions we needed.
There is an indoor pool/sauna as well with a nice walkway that we unfortunately didn't get to use this visit.
This Inn is located near many different Eateries and Shopping.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the Lake.

Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our lakeside Inn. It is a great place to relax, looking over the water from your private balcony-sometimes the wildlife comes out to entertain-we have Canada geese, mallards, as well asthe occasional racoon, mink and otter along the lakeshore. Not to mention red-winged blackbirds,and this week, a turtle has been patrolling the grounds! Having that at your doorstep, and movies theatres, shopping, and restaurants in walking distance is a real bonus.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Nanaimo!

Every room in this hotel has a balcony that faces the Lake. Enjoying sunset in this location is one of the most relaxing experiences. My wife and I had an excellent room on the 3rd floor with a great view of the lake.

Room Tip: Every room faces the Lake.but 2nd or 3rd floor gives better view,

Thank you David P for the great review. It is great being able to relax on your own patio or balcony and look out over the lake. The view is a bit better up high, but some prefer the convenience of being able to access the lawn and grounds from their main floor patio-which still has a pretty good view.
We look forward to seeing you on your next stay in Nanaimo.

Stayed for an overnight business trip. Room amenities were basic with, micro, small fridge, and counter area for food prep; bathroom had some minor issues; beds were comfortable. Most rooms look out over the lake, very peaceful setting in a very convenient location. Malls, restaurants and grocery nearby and right off the highway for easy access. Would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for taking time to review our property. I have to agree, it is so relaxing, yet still close to shopping, restaurants, movies, and the many businesses of North Nanaimo. It seems to work well for business travellers, with the great location, free and ample parking, high speed internet-every room has its own modem-, and complimentary continental breakfast. We are in the process of a few upgrades, including Keurig coffeemakers for our guest rooms.

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and hope that next time you are able to stay a little bit longer to enjoy our lakeside setting
