We would like to thank darkob390 for their review and we are very sorry that our hotel did not live up to their expectations. Our hotel was built in 1986 and our last major renovation was in 2007. Since then we upgraded our lighting, renovated our hallways in 2011, and the outside of the building in 2015. We fully agree that it's time for a refresh and we will be getting into the rooms and lobby for our next renovations starting this fall through next spring. Our sincere apologies to this guest and everyone else inconvenienced last week by the interruption to internet services for a few hours. Our Internet Service Provider Shaw was experiencing a major outage in Nanaimo. Just a note that during the renovation process we will be making significant upgrades to our WIFI system.

Very nice overnight stop

We would like to thank TravelBug797 for their review and for highlighting our friendly and efficient staff. We are pet friendly and just a reminder that reservations need to be co-ordinated through the front desk as we have limited pet friendly rooms. Last Fall and Spring we renovated the outside of the hotel, and this Fall and Spring we will beginning a major refresh inside the hotel which will include work in the hallways, guest rooms, and the lobby.
