Great location, great price, close to everything. The motel is older but is nice and clean, comes with a free game of mini golf. But.......be warned, there is no air conditioning. We went the weekend of August 2 and it was very hot out. We were warned that there was no air, but never expected it to be as uncomfortably... More

The motel was simple, not a lot of frills, but it did have a lot of amenities. A night's stay comes with free mini golf which is a great value, and free continental breakfast with their own home made muffins. There is a coffee machine in the rooms as well as cable TV and good wifi. There is a BBQ... More

Fantastic location! Walking distance to restaurants, beach and stores. The motel has a kids paradise next door. The experience is one of a kind for the family. We will definitely be coming back. Owners are welcoming and kind. We were very surprised how quiet the motel was.

This is a really nice location and your basic motel rooms. Everything was clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. It is a great place to stay for one night and the price is right. \location was good to close to shops and restaurants within walking distance. Free mini putt is a nice bonus.

This is really a nice place to stay. Friendly stuff, giving also some gifts to our little one. You get vouchers for the minigolf next door. FIFA World Cup is shown during breakfast. All in one, everything we needed for our stay between Victoria and Ucluelet

We stayed in an updated room, which included new carpeting, a completely redone bathroom, comfortable beds, and a kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, dishes, and cutlery. There was a basic continental breakfast available as well. The hotel itself is small, which gives it a homey atmosphere, but the rooms are quite spacious. It was very clean, and the... More

Ok for a night, pretty cosy size was, basic without micro or fridge. Need to be careful of the bedlamps as we kept knocking our heads on them! Breakfast was... More

I stayed for 1 night, my husband has 2 more. We stayed in room 30 which is dog friendly for our 94lb lab. The room is very dated (think 1970s) and dim lighting but very clean and the staff are very polite and helpful. You can hear everything outside your room or in the rooms beside or above but it...
