The only reason I stayed at the Ocean Crest was because I couldn't get a room at the two nearby hotels on the waterside. Ocean Crest is a low-budget place, only not a low-budget price -- $97.75 for a single person for one night, after season. Everything in the room looked about 10 years old. For $100, the room didn't... More

Arrived late at night after a long drive and found this place. No barganing about the 99 dollar unfortunately, but the price/quality was definately ok. Friendly folks and the rooms and locations are very good. Near a few restaurants and bars. All in all a pleasant short stay.

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed a relaxing time. We also enjoyed the sun on the chairs by the grass at the back of the motel. The room itself was spacious, comfortable and very clean. As others say its across from the beach but it's also close to places to eat and so we just walked to dinner... More

Never ever felt a bed or chairs that hard in my life. Bed is a mattress on top of a solid wooden box no give at all. Reclining chairs are the same. Pillows are hard as rocks too tired to sleep on top of three pillows and couldn't stay on them. Paid for two nights going to beg for second... More

We stayed one night here while in town for a wedding. Room was quiet except for a little noise from the stairs in the morning. Right across the street from the beach. Host was very accommodating when we checked in late. Also we managed to leave a cell phone behind which was mailed back to us promptly. Wish we could... More

This was a pleasant surprise, a stopover between from the Aurora Explorer Coastal trip and the Nanaimo ferry. Very clean, roomy, location across the street from the beach. Staff helpful, lots of room to park, and the air conditioning was reasonably quite at night. Nice grass area with tables to just sit and enjoy morning coffee.There are lots of motels/hotels... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to Tofino. The room was very clean, the premises were also clean and the host was very friendly and helpful. Across the street from beach access. Close to restaurants. Comfortable.

Ocean Crest has everything you need: quiet, clean, comfortable, walking distance to good restaurants and pubs and only a short walk to the water-front. There is also a nice garden area to sit out and there's a BBQ which I assume is for guests' use.

The place is very clean and the management is very friendly. The only complaint that I have is that it is not close enough to the ocean for my taste. When I go to the ocean I want to be right on the water front. The drive to the ocean is not far at all though, and that is why... More

This hotel cost us $90 inc. tax for one night, room only. We've learned not to expect the same standard of hotel for that money as we'd get at home. By local North American standards, it was good for that price. The rooms were clean, if a little worn. Odd layout with the hand sink in the room, beside the... More
