A group of four has stayed in this motel on August 15th 2015. We have made booking just a couple of days before arrival. As it was so close to the arrival day, there was not much availability in Qualicum Beach for the date required. Our group consisted of 4 adults in their mid 40s – early 50s. This motel... More

We stayed two nights at this motel. The area is very quiet with access to the beach right across the street. The rooms are large and have a mini fridge and coffee machine. The rooms are clean and don't stink. Cheap rates compared to most places. Also has arguably the best toilet paper I've used at a motel haha. Only... More

It's a good motel in a peacfull area. The rooms are big and very clean. There is a nice place to sit outside in the evening. And the staff offcourse is very friendly! And the motel is also very good for bikers on their way.

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights. It was an excellent choice. We had a fridge and coffee maker in our room so we shopped for groceries in town and were able to have breakfast in our room. For dinners, we were conveniently located to restaurants across the street. The motel is also across the street from a beautiful... More

What a great little place. I have to say right out of the gate this place is spotless, seriously I have stayed in many 4 & 5* hotels that don't hold a candle to this place for cleanliness. Yes it's older and has some cosmetic things amiss but nothing that should impact your stay. We had a room with two... More

Stayed at the Ocean Crest Motel for 2 nights in March 2015. When we first entered the room it had a strange odour, but after a little while of leaving the doors and windows open it was okay. I think they used a strong cleaning solution(?) The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable. We rented one with a small kitchenette... More

Lovely, clean, friendly and great location. Large, clean and comfortable room with a bay window, two comfortable chairs and a bouquet of flowers on the sill. Only a three minute walk to an excellent restaurant, Dee'z. Across the street to the beach, ocean and birds - lots and lots of birds. We'll be back.

Nice, clean room with 2 queen beds. There was cross ventilation, so we didn't need to use the AC at night. There was a sweet spray smell in the room which was a bit strong, but otherwise everything was fine.

This small motel had a great location and the owner was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were your basic style motel rooms. The place was clean and quite had everything you need. We would stay here again.

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
