A recent family had this to say about the Painted Turtle Guesthouse:
My son and I spent 4 days at the Painted Turtle when we visited Nanaimo. It was great, very clean, nice room (we stayed in a family room) and friendly staff. I especially liked the kitchen/common room. The location is great, downtown with lots of restaurants and shops. I liked that there were people of all ages and nationalities staying there. I will stay there again when I return to Nanaimo. TripAdvisor.com Review – March 2011
