Convenient location for the activities we had planned. Being on the main road in Nanaimo, you are very aware of the traffic noise.

It was awful! What a dump! For what you paid and where else you could stay for the price! Will never be back! Place is falling apart. We stayed for 3 nights in the family suite and not once did someone clean our room or take out the garbage. The owners sit and smoke at the front door all day. It was honestly the worst motel my family has ever stayed in! AWFUL!!!
