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.

An awesome motel! We stayed during the Vancouver Island Music Festival for the rate and value it can't be beat! 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!

For a low cost motel you can't beat the Anco. Nice pool, friendly staff, clean room even the people I met were friendly and nice. Able to park my motorcycle right outside my door. Will stay here again.

A group of friends reserved several rooms for a night or two and we were treated really well by the friendly and helpful staff. We were upgraded to a newly renovated room with a full kitchen, for very little extra. Everything was clean, mostly brand new and comfortable, especially the bed. You can not beat the Anco Motel for value... More

The Anco is a newly renovated motel with clean rooms a pool and free wifi. I stayed for business and would return for pleasure. The staff are very friendly and will accommodate your requests. The Anco is close to all amenities in Courtenay.
