Where to stay in Nanaimo

Stay at one of the guesthouses and inns lining Front Street if you want to be in the heart of the city, while also enjoying the waterfront at your doorstep. For a more natural ambiance, head north of the center along the coastal highway, where you can choose from a selection of inns and resorts boasting views over Newcastle Island. If you have a car and prefer an easy route out of town, stay at one of the motels lining Island Highway to the northwest of the center.
