The property looks nice and clean. The location is conveniently close to the ferry terminal. Room is clean, a bit noisy due to being close to the street. Breakfast is adaquate.

I decided to give this hotel another chance to win me over and it failed. It started with the front desk agent, who at best I can say smiled twice but seemed to pay more attention to his phone. Not very helpful. I stayed in the King room with jacuzzi tub (which as I mentioned was the best part after I cleaned it.) So...on to the disappointments: the bathroom amenities had one Kleenex in the box - I called asking for a new box...didn't get one. I realized I didn't have change for the drink machine but I thought "Hey, they have a little store in the lobby" the pictures below is the "store" consisting of NO DRINKS, just an empty shelving unit, a few toiletries for sale and a snack machine. So when I asked for change they didn't have any, when I asked for an ATM I was told "it's down the road." Very helpful staff :) I didn't take advantage of the free hot breakfast with the near empty heating containers because I lost confidence in the staff already from the start :( So, if you're looking for a place just to pass out and not care about getting what you paid for...then this place is for you!

Relaxing, safe, comfortable. Arrival is well organized, I always noted how courteous (jackie) welcoming us and accommodating all our needs. I enjoy the breakfast, staff in there alway a kind word to share "good to see us😊" The rooms, are so clean and refreshing, no matter if winter, warm entry, summer, nice and cool. Thank you

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.
