Best Western Northgate Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location in North Nanaimo with Superstore across the street, Woodgrove Centre mall and many restaurants nearby. Approx. 30 minute drive from the airport. Newly renovated hotel with nicely decorated rooms and lobby. Rooms a little on the small side, but not bad since room included 2 comfortable queen beds. Good sized bathroom. Great new Lennox AC system (the best I've experienced at any hotel!). Shaw cable with on-screen guide. Large breakfast room on 2nd floor with options including scrambled eggs, sausages, waffles, yogurt, cereal, juice, and coffee. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

First experience at a Best Western and was very happy with what appeared to be a newly renovated property. Room with kitchenette was spacious and staff efficient. Breakfast much the sMe as Hampton properties which we normally stay at while visiting USA. Bit of traffic noise til 9.30pm but quiet after that. We have more Best Western's booked this trip so hope they are as good.

great staff, friendly and helpful. location a bit out of the way so be sure to check directions. roads in Nanaimo confusing anyway! location is close to shopping if you are on your fishing or up island vacationing

All the staff were really great, friendly and very helpful. This newly renovated (just a couple of rooms on the 1st floor remaining to be completed) property really exemplifies Best Western's standards. A great breakfast is even served on real plates with real cutlery (No Paper or Plastic). I highly recommend this property if Nanaimo is on your itinerary.

This hotel is reasonably priced and offers an excellent place to call home while on business or just visiting Nanaimo. It is centrally located to all amenities and offers a great full breakfast and reliable internet and a business centre to print and scan from. The hotel was quiet being located in a busy retail area. Lots of free parking and staff who made us feel like we were at home but treated us like royalty.

very good stay. hotel staff very helpful location good general condition of the hotel is good, some rnos were in progress breakfast was good parking sometimes was a little tight, temp control in the room was touchy

Rooms were good but it was under renovation when we were there so I found out the gym was not in use. Would of been nice to know before we booked. The free breakfast was very good. Plenty to choose from. Would go back if the gym was in use. Paid with aeroplan and when we got home got a phone call that they accidentally charged it to our card but credited us. Great that they found it and didn't have argue.

we were traveling to mid Vancouver island to visit my sister and her family and we caught the last ferry to the island. arrived at the hotel around 9:30pm and the staff were fantastic. the rooms were very clean and large. the beds were new and very comfortable. Breakfast was the best we had on our entire vacation. will stay here every time we come to Vancouver island.

I would recommend the Best Western to anyone who was going to stay in a hotel.. and my husband and I will be traveling to Victoria in September and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt where we will stay. Very pleasant, all the staff were just wonderful. Thank you so much for a very fun weekend.

During my frequent visits to Vancouver Island i find the central location and comfort of this hotel to be ideal. It is situated right off the highway and makes any a great launch point to anywhere my travels take me.
