If you are taking a holiday or vacation to experience Vancouver Island, or to visit friends and family in Nanaimo the Painted Turtle Guesthouse is a great home-away-from-home.  Our heritage hotel rooms are clean, comfortable and simple and our affordable price allows you to spend more on your favourite dining and activity experiences. Downtown Nanaimo has over 40 restaurants & cafes featuring local & world cuisines.  We are one block from the harbourfront walkway with 5km of multi-use trails, Fisherman’s Wharf, swimming lagoon, parks & playground, unique shops, marinas and more!
