Room was nice and clean, the downer was the air conditioner!!!SO LOUD! And INEFFICIENT! Don't know how we managed to sleep through the noise,we must have been exhausted!! It was nice to have a complimentary breakfast and Free WiFi to make up for the terrible a/c situation.

The hotel wasn't too bad, front desk staff were pleasant. I found that the road noise from the main road directly behind the hotel was a little much at times, especially when louder vehicles drove by.

This is a modern clean hotel we stayed at on the start of our road trip to Vancouver Island. The staff really made us feel at home and the breakfast staff were especially nice. My girlfriend needs gluten free and is lactose intolerant and they were very accommodating. We would stay again when in Nanaimo, BC
