This place was sparkling clean and quiet and one of the few hotels with computers which actually work (they actually had two such computers in the well-lit lobby). The staff were incredibly helpful with everything. What stands out was the cleanthiness of the hotel and the aesthetics.

One of the nicer Best Western hotel's I've stayed in. Friendly staff, comfortable and clean room with continental breakfast. The breakfast was served buffet style and the room was just about big enough to seat the guests vying for tables.

There were 3 clean and nice queen beds and a whirlpool tub in our suite, and there's a free continental breakfast. The decor was slightly dated and the A/C a bit noisy for sleeping but otherwise no complaints here.

I chose this BW hotel for my 2 day business trip to Nanaimo based on 4.0 review on TripAdvisor. Not many pros if any at all: - Good TV - In room safe - Ice machine is by reception (so it's not making noise next to my door) - Nice yard garden (but not in front of the hotel) Here...

GMNorthgate, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Northgate Inn, responded to this review

We would like to thank darkob390 for their review and we are very sorry that our hotel did not live up to their expectations. Our hotel was built in 1986 and our last major renovation was in 2007. Since then we upgraded our lighting, renovated our hallways in 2011, and the outside of the building in 2015. We fully agree...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here 9 years ago and it's still as good now. It's super clean, efficient, generous. Great location. It's across from Superstore and Cobbs bread. Beds are comfortable and fresh. The staff was friendly and flexible. They were very accommodating and the breakfast was a hot meal. Spot on.

Clean, newly renovated, nice room size, friendly and efficient staff. The breakfast was enjoyable. This hotel is located in the north end of Nanaimo but close to a number of malls and within walking distance of restaurants. Best of all, it is pet friendly.

We would like to thank TravelBug797 for their review and for highlighting our friendly and efficient staff.

Chose this hotel primarily for decent accommodation at a reasonable price for recent visit with family in both Nanaimo and Parksville. Excellent location for our purposes, located in North Nanaimo adjacent to the Island Highway (but separated by a treed area). Good free, full daily breakfast, well patronized by guests. Hotel was quiet and clean, with friendly and helpful staff....

We would like to thank Travelsak for their review of their hotel stay. Parksville, and downtown Nanaimo are both 15-20 minutes away from our property. It makes us a preferred place for guests to stay who need to travel to both locations. We have quite a few corporate guests that stay with us for this reason. I would also have...

We use this Best Western at least annually for business because of the location. It delivers what I expect for this price-point and type of hotel. It's a bit older but it has been well maintained over the years. It used to have a pub/restaurant in the hotel (closed - just a breakfast area) but there are several restaurants within...
