The staff at this motel are fantastic, very friendly, and helpful! It's great the they offer free breakfast. The hotel is quite dated though and could use some renovations, especially the kitchenettes. Very old looking yellow coloured cabinets and has an old non working fridge that says "storage only" and has a working fridge up on the counter. It comes... More

The beds are great- extremely comfortable. Better than most places. Accessibility needs improvement. There is a small ramp to assist getting into rooms on the front but no rail and slippery in the rain. No ramp in the back- you have to get up over a curb and up a step. Not easy with accessibility issues. Noise from other rooms... More

Staff was very friendly and helpful - had major problems with the room key/card - and staff took care of it promptly each time. Room was very clean and quiet. Had to go up a flight of stairs to obtain ice or vending machines - the only negative. Easy parking and close to downtown, etc.

Although this is an old hotel they are trying hard . They have changed some of the flooring to wood for more cleanliness. The breakfast is very good and the rooms are quite clean. It is on the main street and close to town. It is OK for a one night stay.

good place to stay when catching the ferry. There is a free shuttle to the NOVA Star ferry. Locat restaurants were easy reachable by car. Good old fashon motel, no elevator, and all access were outdoor. Could be a problem in the winter.

Hotel was on the same street as the ferry terminal, very convenient - with free wi-fi and breakfast. Good shower, clean. Staff was friendly and offered advice about the room selection. Fast food within walking distance, water view from upstairs room - facing the street. Rooms are not sound proofed.
