Other people's comments about the maintenance of this property maybe fail to take account of its location directly at the sea edge. In practice, it was soundly maintained. The proprietors were very helpful (although housekeeping was a little erratic). Our room was very comfortable and spacious with a well equipped kitchen and a superb ocean view.

If you like a small hotel, beside the sea with views of the mainland mountains across the Strait, and the ability to leave your room and be walking along a sandy beach at low tide then the Sand Pebbles Inn is for you. It's , to me, the old Qualicum Beach, not pretentious or over-priced . Great location in a... More

The location is the best thing going for this motel. The new management (as of April) were a grumpy elderly couple who are definitely not concerned with any amount of customer service. A very "we don't care" attitude towards our family. We had four rooms...10 people in our party. After 10 years of staying here each summer...we were advised that... More

It's a simple and oldish motel but the rooms are clean, the beds are perfect and the views are just incredible. You watch the sunset before going to bed and you wake up by the sound of the ocean. Very very nice, we were positively surprised! The only downside is that it is very close to the road, you hear... More

I left my phone behind but it was returned to me without any problems .They do not have a restaurant but there is a great restaurant right next door with... More

This was by far the best motel we have ever stayed in, the value for the money was unbelievably good, location was perfect and the owners very friendly and helpful. The room was large, clean, very comfortable and safe with a spectacular view of the ocean, in fact you could not get any closer to the beach as this motel... More

As we do every year we spent our Anniversary at the Sand Pebbles Inn. Our room was great, nice and clean and tastefully decorated and the views of the ocean and beach nothing short of spectacular. Service here is warm and friendly. We would (and have) highly recommend this hotel to everyone traveling on Vancouver Island. G&K

My husband and I stayed at the sand pebbles while we were house hunting. We loved it..good location, friendly, clean and the beds were so comfortable ...important as I have a bad back. We stayed in three different rooms during our search for our new home. Every room was clean,comfortable and had a wonderful view of the beach. In the... More

As mentioned in most of the previous reviews, the Sand Pebbles location can't be beaten. A full 5/5. Unfortunately, we can't sleep or shower IN the location, we need a room for that and that is where this motel fades. A charitable 2/5 for the Sand Pebbles' rooms. While we were slightly amused by the gold toned, 70's era bathrooms,... More
