The Inn on Long Lake also works in partnership with many local companies to promote all that Nanaimo has to offer. The Longwood Brew Pub and Nanaimo Clippers hockey team are just two examples — please ask for more details when booking. We are also members of the Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Nanaimo, and the Nanaimo Hospitality Association.

We are particularly proud of our friendship with Spirit Eagle Shared Experiences, a guided aboriginal eco-cultural tour by the Ahousaht First Nation located near Tofino. Learn about Ahousaht culture, its art, food, history and life today, and explore the natural beauty of Vancouver Island’s rugged West Coast.

Guests who are in Victoria are invited to visit the Best Western Plus Emerald Isle in beautiful Sidney-by-the-Sea. Just five minutes from the BC and Anacortes Ferry Terminals and the Victoria International Airport, this charming family hotel is also a stone’s throw from all of the attractions that Sidney and the Saanich Peninsula have to offer including the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre and the world-famous Butchart Gardens.

The Inn on Long Lake is excited to sponsor the Tour De Rock for the 12th year in a row. This year’s event is from September 23, to October 7, 217. We are honoured to host the tour’s participants when they stop in Nanaimo on Sunday, October 1nd, 2017. The Cops For Cancer Red Serge Gala also occurs October 1nd, being held in the Coast Bastion Ballroom. This is a chance to meet the riders, learn more about the Tour De Rock, as well as enjoy a wonderful meal, and perhaps bid on some great live and silent auction items. A great way to support a great event.
