Ramada Nanaimo

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean and comfortable with fridge and microwave. Friendly easy check in. They wanted us to take our bikes to the room, which was great with us. Breakfast was good start to day. Greek restaurant 2 doors down was yummy

We were completely pleased with our stay at the Ramada Nanaimo. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome right away. The room itself was immaculate, very spacious, with a balcony and facing the rear of the property so very quiet. We enjoyed our sleep in the very comfortable queen size bed and found the included breakfast the next morning to be adequate, not outstanding, but certainly decent. All in all a very nice stay and we'd certainly check into the Ramada again the next time we overnight in Nanaimo.

Very good value hotel. The rooms are clean and equipment with the microwave. We stayed at the room with the King size bed and it was very spacious. This room type doesn't offer a balcony but the stand rooms do. Breakfast is included and offers a fair choice for the money. If your room is facing the parking lot it will be quiet, I can't speak for the rooms facing the street. The only two things that I would improve on; is the quality of the toilet paper and the loud ding on the elevator (every time I was arriving at my floor I felt sorry for the people staying next to it). I would most definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and business associates.

We were late checking in. Parking lot not real good if towing a trailer. Ok if not real busy. Guy at check in was friendly and polite. Place is clean. Room was very big. Bed was comfortable. Would stay again.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights this week. Durring our stay we were trying to maximize money and minimize expenses so the breakfast was a big value for us. While it wasn't AMAZING... The cheese and egg omlettes and sausage patties and yogurt and cereal for the kids was all we needed. The rooms almost had a mini kitchen with the fridge microwave and sink separate from the bathroom... it allowed us to make basic dinners and save money there too. What I really loved was the balconies. They didn't have spectacular views really, but it gave us an extra 'room' almost or an area I could take a phone call without clients having to hear my kids in the background. The beds were insanely comfy. Overall we were happy with our stay and would likely consider it again if we wanted to visit Nanaimo.

Rooms clean and comfortable, good amenities (fridge, microwave, sink, coffee/tea maker), internet. Coffee and tea are of poor quality both in the room and at breakfast. Heater/air conditioner in room is quite loud and disrupted sleep quality a bit. Good service and decent location.

Rooms were large with comfortable beds. Continental breakfast included. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

We booked this room with our air miles and had no problem with giving our credit card at check in since there was none on file. The room was clean and comfortable and we had a wonderful stay until we dropped off our room card to check out and were told we had to wait until some checked our room to make there is no damage before they could take the 75.00 hold off our credit card. I understand this is a standard procedure but have never been told to wait and found this comment to be very insulting and embarrassing! We were told to wait until this was done before she would give a receipt with 0 balance. The lady then excused herself saying she was new so she called the manager who then said someone was still checking our room to make sure we didn't smoke in it or damage it. We are a non smoking couple in our 60s, traveled quite a distance from the mainland, checked in early evening, dropped our bag off then went out for dinner, we were back in the room and in bed by 10:00. No booze, no visitors, no parties and no noise! We have stayed in more hotels than I care to remember, we were both shocked by these comments and found this to be very unprofessional and embarrassing!

Didn't have breakfast as we had to catch the 6:30am ferry. Check in was fast and friendly. Rooms were large and quiet with comfortable beds and white bedding. Shower was good. Location was about 5 to 10min from Departure Bay ferry terminal. Only issue was they ran out of complimentary toothbrushes and we were forced to buy one from the reception. They shouldn't advertise complimentary toothbrush if they were going to run out and force the guest to purchase instead.

Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, excellent location. The manager, Jason Chi, gave us fabulous, late checkout that allowed us to rest up before the gold medal game! That's what I call hospitality! Saanich Braves will return!
