Stay Awhile & Unwind

Nanaimo has no shortage of comfortable lodgings’ whether that means a king-sized bed and feather pillow in a room with a view or a seaside campground with an RV hook-up and a hot shower facility.

Bed & Breakfast

For a true taste of Island life, enjoy a hosted stay with the gracious proprietors of one of the excellent local bed & breakfast establishments. Nanaimo’s plentiful B&Bs offer a range of accommodations, from luxury waterfront residences to rural forested retreats to quaint city bungalows.

Niche Accommodation, Campgrounds & RV Resorts

The long narrow layout between the mountains and the coast make Nanaimo campgrounds the perfect base for your Vancouver Island camping trip. Here you can set up a tent or trailer in a quiet wilderness spot, and still be just a few minutes away from city amenities and entertainment. The Nanaimo area is well known for its many extraordinary campgrounds and RV parks, including the unique, accessible by passenger ferry only, camping facilities at Newcastle Island Marine Provincial Park.

Hotels & Motels

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.
