Above the Tide Motel is a great little place close to down town Campbell River. The Motel is older but well maintained. We stay here quite often when shopping in Campbell River. All the rooms have view and faces active pass (shipping lane) where you can watch the cruise ships go by, whales, dolphins..... it's like a nature show on... More

Once I got over myself I realized this place was quite great. The view from the 3rd floor was awesome, the sunrise was beautiful. The highway noise woke me up a few times, earplugs would be helpful. No neighbor noise due to the cinder blocks. Very clean, we picked this motel as it didn't have that weird smell that some... More

Found this by accident, it is just outside the town but an easy walk to the quay. Excellent value for money, the view alone was worth the price. The Museum across the road is well worth a visit.A chicken salad and a bottle of wine overlooking the Sound with salmon leaping out of the water, I can think of worse... More

I've stayed at this motel in the past, and it's still a good deal -- if you're looking for something basic, clean and well-priced. The rooms are a bit dated, but there's a great view of the ocean. The motel is right off of the old highway, so bring earplugs. But, if you're looking to save a few dollars in... More

Very clean with a great view over the water. This is an older facility but very clean and the road noise is acceptable for the location. A consistently good value as I have stayed here several times , the last for 1 week on business in Campbell River. The towels are thick and the kitchenette is basic with no microwave... More

The view from every room is spectacular., plus, this homey, friendly motel is almost directly across the highway from the fabulous Campbell River Museum. Yes, the walls are cinderblock, but the beds are quite comfortable and the furniture is definitely not the creepy, standard-issue cookie-cutter stuff you see in chain motels. The drinking glasses are actual glass, not cheap plastic... More

Waterfront location with wonderful views over Discovery Passage but motel is situated right on Island Highway which has constant traffic and is noisy. It’s some way out of town but easy flat walking along the waterfront – 15/20 minutes to downtown and at least 40 minutes to main Discovery Harbour shopping centre, Riptide pub etc. We appreciated the early checkin...

My wife and I stayed at the Above Tide motel for one night on our way back to Victoria. Our room was actually a suite of several rooms including a bedroom, a bathroom, a small kitchen, and a living room area with a balcony overlooking the Strait of Georgia. (Note - it appears from other reviews that not all rooms... More

We booked the motel after a series of excellent reviews, and then it received some pretty bad ones. We found it to be a fairly standard motel, with large, clean rooms, all of which have a balcony and a fantastic view out to the sea. You can park outside your room. There is free WiFi, and coffee was provided. The... More

We were looking for a basic place to stay for 1 night at a reasonable price. That's what we got and nothing more, except of course for the lovely view from the verandah. Motel is the old style concrete block construction. Room furnishings are well worn and past their best before date. The owner does keep the place freshley painted... More
