A comfortable motel or hotel room is never far away in the Harbour City. Whether you’re seeking a luxury oceanview suite, or just a cozy room with beds and basic amenities, Nanaimo hotels and motels offer dozens of choices to suit your needs. Friendly hotels, motels and lodges line the Island Highway 19A from north to south, many with pools and other attractions like lakefront locations and views.

As Vancouver Island’s Hub City, Nanaimo offers a wide variety of brand name hotels, where quality and comfort are always part of the package. Most of the city’s finest hotels are located downtown, and in the Long Lake area in north-central Nanaimo. More affordable Nanaimo motels can be found throughout the city, with the greatest variety located downtown, near Terminal Avenue and Nicol Street. Ferry passengers will find the selection of lodging in this area especially convenient.
