We stayed at this hotel, it is was a last minute reservation, first let me say it looks like they are trying to clean the place up, newer laminate flooring in all the hallway and rooms but it is a case of you get what you pay for. the shower had no real head so it just pelted me with... More

I have stayed off and on at the Haida/Harbourside for several months (last September/October, and May through till the present) I work locally, and spend my time off in Campbell River. The lack of amenities i.e. pool, gym, breakfast are more than made up for by the pleasantness and eagerness to please of the owner Peter and his staff. This... More

This is our third stay at the Harbourside Inn and it's still cheap and cheerful. The old couple that run the place are pleasant and helpful with my kids. We were on our way to Quadra Island and they had some good suggestions. The hotel wasn't super modern but fit my budget. It was sparse but clean and had laminate... More

I cannot understand why anyone could recommend this place unless the postive reviews werre written by familiy members or people being bribed Remember the movie Psycho with the Bates Motel, well this felt almost the same. Upon entering a musty smelling foyer, I knew that I made a mistake by staying here. The long empty hallways with old dated carpet... More

What more could you ask for from an affordable clean room in the heart of down town and so close to the ocean you can smell that fresh salt air. The staff make you feel right at home and the attached cold beer and wine have a wonderful selection of wines as well as foreign and domestic beer and spirits.... More

Got good value for the price, it was clean, close to two nice strolls in the town/harbour. Good room with all I wanted: a big window that opens on the leaves of tree with the river/boats in the close background. Was almost empty and hence very quiet.

This place has welfare rooms full of crack addicts. The owner used to own the Regent Hotel in Vancouver's skid row. It has bed bugs and they don't change the sheets between guests unless they have to. The woman that works at the liquor store below will try to short change you if she can get away with it.

This is quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever set foot in. Would you believe they have this hotel rated the same as the Best Western Chalet in Campbell River. The dirtiest, seediest hotel on the planet. Floors were stained, elevator was disgusting, rooms had single pane windows with no A/C but a standing oscillating fan instead. Stay elsewhere... More

I spent two nights here over a weekend in different rooms, and when I woke up Sunday morning I was feeling itchy but also tired from the noise. I didn’t think anything of it until Tuesday, when I counted 24 bites on the front of my body, in little lines progressing up my arms, legs, and chest. Obviously disturbed I... More
