Booked a room there last week for summer holidays, it was very hot and motel advertised air-conditioned rooms. We received a room with a fan and requested a room with the advertised air-conditioning. The person at the desk requested extra payment for the advertised room. She was very rude and unfriendly. I can not recommend this motel to any traveller.... More

All around average hotel. A little older, but decent place to stay if you're on a bit of a budget or like to save money. The sign says Air Conditioned rooms, but you have to pay extra for one of those rooms. There was a fan in the room but if it's hot outside it gets really warm in the... More

We booked this Motel for 2 nights. Could we find fault? No. It was amazingly good value. Exceedingly clean and tidy. Our room had 2 double beds, a kitchenette and a bathroom. All were spotless! There is a pool, that was very clean, as well. Parking is excellent, right outside your room. The ladies on Reception were very welcoming and... More

We were stranded on the island this past weekend (BCFerries issues!) and went to our stand-by choice for an overnight stay. The Anco is certainly nothing special in the sense that the rooms are basic - motel-style. No indoor pool or waterslides, no fancy creams or plush beddings. However, you get a CLEAN room at an exceptional price, with friendly... More

Kind staff, under brilliant management. Regular guests are made to feel ‘part of the family.’ Comfy beds and clean rooms with good wifi, coffee maker, fridge and cable TV in every room. Easy access to highway, close to supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars.

We very much enjoyed staying at this well-located, clean and friendly motel during early October, 2013. On the Saturday morning, we inquired if a local fish shop selling smoked salmon was still in business -- two people in the front office assured us that it was, with obvious delight. Later that afternoon, as we were resting in our motel room,... More

Room was clean and had everything needed (bar fridge, coffee maker). We had a queen bed and single bed in a smoking room. Was great to be able to smoke in the room. Outdoor pool at the front, parking everywhere, laundry, etc. Would stay there again.

The rooms were clean, I stayed in a double with a friend, Came fully equipped with TV and Fridge. Their Wifi was down at the time but it was easy enough to find an ethernet cable from the front desk.... More

Room was standard so no air conditioning, only room left. At least it wasn't too hot of a day, but if it was at least there is a pool to cool off in. The room smelled faintly like old smoke. May have been a smoking room at one time, also there is ashtrays outside every room, so I'm sure smoke... More

Nice clean rooms, comfortable beds, very friendly staff, good location good wifi. Only issue was a smoker next door. Rooms are non smoking but since all rooms have outside access they put a chair and a sand bucket outside the door for smokers. We had to change rooms because of the cigarette smoke drawn in through the air conditioner!
