Stayed here for one night in the executive suite, the lobby has a great historic feel and the location is great for walking in Nanaimo. The room was a big disappointment, thrift store decore with miss matched furniture and no thought given to layout. Tired dated and generally unclean with thick dust on the baseboards. Our room overlooked the smoking patio, air quality was terrible. The hotel location is very noisy at night with groups of people going to and from bars and traffic. We were woken up several times by screaming and a fight that had to be broken up by police on the sidewalk beside the hotel.
This location lacks the amenities one would expect at a Best Western Plus, there is very limited parking available for guests, no complimentary breakfast and while the lobby is lovely our room was tired and dirty. If location is what you value most then that can't be beat. Unless you are a really deep sleeper bring ear plugs.
