We stayed here due to the following: Price Breakfast included Minutes from ferry terminal All of the above were great value. My only "negative" is that the breakfast room could become very crowed very quickly as there are only a few tables.
We had a great stay here for a really good price compared to everything else in nanaimo, the hosts are super friendly, rooms are nice and clean and they have good breakfast! Thank you very much Departure Bay Motel
Very good proximity to the ferry terminal, so if you plan to catch the early ferry it's less than a 5 minute drive. We had room 41 which was clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable however the bath was showing some signs of wear. Overall a relatively cheap, clean motel. Oh…
We booked this cheap motel because it was pet friendly and we're just looking for a place to crash on a road trip. Room 41 was infested with fleas. Shortly after arriving in the room we found 16 fleas on one dog. Worried it was from the park we were just at, we waited to make…
The price was good for the overnight stay, no real amenities but couple was really nice and helpful. Good walking location to a great restaurant next store. Bed comfortable. Had owner give us a 4am wake up as we had to catch the 6:15am ferry.
"Ask for room on an upper level, at the back for a quieter night."
"We had a quiet room in second block away from highway."
"think all rooms are okay - maybe go south - nearer Estevan side than the Old Island Highway."
"Just pay cash and do not leave any credit card information if u don't want "surprising" charges after u left the area!"
