Basic accommodation close to restaurants, coffee shops, gas, etc. Rooms are adequate but well worn. The serene water views are the main attraction. Friendly and welcoming reception. On a busy road but quiet at night.

A clean and comfortable motel, very reasonably priced, close to the centre of campbell river, with access to the beach. Easy to find and plenty of parking. It was interesting to talk to the owner, who had taken over in May, about the improvements she had already made, and what she planned to do.

Passage view was recommended to us by two different people for it's view and value. $100 gets you a more than adequately equipped room with fridge, microwave, free wifi, coffee etc. Front desk service was super friendly and helpful. Wow what a great view we had from the second floor. Be advised this is not a resort or high end... More

Thanks for taking time to write a review for us. I apologize for taking so long to respond. It was pretty hectic around here for the first bit while we were transitioning as the new management. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself at the Passage View. More

Very quiet motel right on the water. spotless room with all the essentials including fridge, coffee maker and good wi-fi. It was nice to leave the french window open and listen to the waves. The reception was very friendly and efficient and the rate good at about $90. Good parking. Located up the hill out of the downtown but still... More

I stayed at the Passage View in September 2014 as part of a west coast tour. As things happen, I stayed in Campbell River twice. The first time I stayed at the Trip Advisor #1 rated motel (and it was not #1 in my books). The second time I followed the recommendations of some traveling companions and stayed at Passage... More

Had a restful and enjoyable stay at the Passage View motel. All rooms face the water and have picnic tables right outside the back door. Watch the eagles fly overhead. About 100 steps takes you down to the waterfront. Lovely place to stay, clean and well maintained. Full kitchen facilities. Friendly and welcoming. Be sure to visit the First Nations... More

It was getting late, raining, and I'd just pulled out of the motel down the road where the room was so smoky it burned my eyes and I demanded my money back. I was almost at the edge of Campbell River and everywhere else was showing No Vacancy. I was getting worried. When I saw the Vacancy sign at Passage... More

A clean tidy motel.You can walk down to sea and along the shore line. Quite ,with the sound of sea gulls in the back ground.A constant passage of small fishing boats with the odd large ones going past, good show at night.we will stay here again.

I would have liked to have rated this motel higher, especially after reading others' comments, but other than the view was rather disappointed. Paper cups for coffee and plastic 'glasses' doesn't go with spending $100 for a room. The bed was comfortable and enjoyed the view of course.

This motel was old from the outside but we were highly surprised with the quality of the rooms. The room standard is much higher than some more modern hotels. Once we saw the room we made no hesitation to stay. Great beds.
