Good location, easy to find
Rooms could use some updating, but overall they were good. Neighbors were a bit noisy when they were sitting outside near our door first thing in the morning when we wanted to sleep in. Housekeeping came early while we were still getting ready, so came back later (after one of them opened our door even though we had told the other one to come back later).
No coffee on our last morning
The management, staff, location and the motel itself. You do feel welcomed.
Pet area. A better and 'dedicated'' pet area so guest know exactly where their pets can go.
The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable.
The cleaner only cleaned half the room and not the bathroom. The motel is on a busy road which can be heard from the room. It was rather expensive for what it was. The fridge was loud and had to be turned off during the night.
The pictures on booking.com are very misleading. The rooms are very dirty. The sheets were not even renewed and have hair and blood stains. The towels in the bathroom had hair from previous guests. We recommend to avoid this motel.
With a stay at The Bluebird Motel in Nanaimo (Regional District of Nanaimo), you'll be a 3-minute drive from Departure Bay Ferry Terminal and 7 minutes from Vancouver Island University. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
