Shower curtain rod falling off. Someone else's eyeliner left on floor, rainbow of pubic hair in tub. Dirty chipped walls. Comp breakfast in the basement bowels of the hotel...

Stayed 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. The room, although it could use some updating, was clean and well appointed. It looks as though the exterior had undergone some extensive renovation. One of the few hotels in Nanaimo with an indoor pool and hot tub. Free, basic continental breakfast with our stay, which was perfectly fine. Bear in...

My family and I have been here often over the years. Rooms are usually clean, service has been consistently good, and continental breakfast well stocked. The children always enjoy the indoor pool (get pool towels from the front desk upstairs). The doors to the rooms are very thin and every bit of noise from the passage comes right through. But...

Had an unexpected layover in Nanaimo and almost passed this place buy because of the access but I'm glad I didn't as in the morning when I saw the other hotels nearby in daylight I was rather shocked. It is older but has everything you need. It is clean and staff is friendly. It has the standard continental breakfast and...

Found this through hotel.com, had a great price and booked. Walled in and asked to confirm if it is pet-friendly as we had 2 dogs. They were great at accomdating my change and gave me a room that allowed pets. Nice towels at the front desk for my pool visit. The jets in the hot tub were very weak, and...

Dear Stephanie, We are glad to hear that our Pet Friendly Guest Room suited your needs on your recent stay with us. We did have a group of Volleyball Teams stay with us and this may have contributed to the murkiness of the pool (heavy usage). We are sorry that the noise from the Team/s disturbed your peace and quiet....

Most people think of Days Inn as an economic bonus whilst travelling. The Day's Inn Nanaimo dispels that theory all to "heck". The staff are/were exceptional... the TV didn't function properly, could have been the battery for the remote ... whatever. no prob ... change room. Need a decent meal for a great price they have a built in "Ricki's"...
