Built on Stz’uminus First Nation land along the highway between Victoria and Nanaimo, Microtel
Oyster Bay attracts steady tourist traffic while supporting The Nation’s nearby retail, food and beverage, and retail fuel ventures. The hotel has become a flagship for the Stz’uminus, showcasing indigenous art, tradition and culture of the Coast Salish people. Featuring custom woodwork throughout the hotel, outdoor gazebo and entry doorway, this Microtel is truly distinct and pays tribute to the natural landscape which is central to Stz’uminus identity.
Microtel provided a full turnkey solution for this location, supporting the Stz’uminus as developer, hotel manager and asset manager. Under Microtel’s operational guidance, the hotel has been recognized among Microtel’s top performing properties worldwide, while putting up steady performance throughout the pandemic. With its convenient placement amongst transportation veins and networks like the Nanaimo airport and ferry terminal, the Oyster Bay location will continue to capitalize on persistent tourism and highway demand from visitors and locals exploring Vancouver Island and beyond.
