Fairly basic accommodation room-wise but has back deck and chairs right on the Pacific ocean, which for this Eastern guy was pretty cool. While glancing out from the deck I noticed some shimmering water and discovered it was a pod of orcas...about 15 of them!! How cool is that? I'd definitely go back just for the views.

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling around Vancouver Island. The hotel is a little tired and we felt the price ($149.45 inc taxes) was a little too high. The delightful sea view from the room's balcony swayed us into staying however. The room itself was of a good size, clean and pleasant enough with patio doors opening onto... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. We have variety of teas available on request and are always at your service for anything a guest needs. Our rooms are priced from $89.95 + taxes which still have an ocean view. You chose to be close to the sea wall with views on two sides. This is our... More

We were three adults traveling around Vancouver Island last summer. Being from Ontario we wanted to see as much oceanfront as possible on our vacation. Qualicum beach seemed to be the appropriate place to stop for this particular night. We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel and were hoping to find one with waterfront as well. As we drove...

This motel is situated on the beach and views from any of the rooms are of ocean waves. Place is older but everything works and is clean. Very economical. Certainly worth a try. We stayed a week with our little dog and would consider returning.

Our hosts had just taken over the motel 6 months before and found the summer rush a little exhausting. I believe that they intend to use the winter slow-time to spruce up the place a bit. The location is awesome, the host couple are delightful, the views are just spectacular. Yes it's a little on the old side, but everything... More

Great location - especially if you get one of the upstairs rooms by the sea with stupendous views, and the area is relaxing and quiet. The management are welcoming, friendly and helpful, and although the building and services are perhaps past their best, everything works, and everything is spotlessly clean. Our room was comfortable with space for a sofa and... More

The Sand Pebbles Inn is located on the waterfront in Qualicum Beach. The view from our room was priceless. When we arrived there was a wide rocky beach, but when the tide came in the water lapped against the seawall. You can't get closer than that! The room was spacious and equipped with a microwave and small refrigerator. The accommodations... More

This place is located perfectly on the shore and were able to walk right out and go into the water or sit and enjoy the scenery. The place itself needs an update. The kitchenette is a bit grubby and the oven elements are not child proof and can be turned on really easily (they are the perfect height for my... More

We were travelling with another couple and had the large unit with separate bedroom and a pull out sofa. We've stayed here before and absolutely it is the BEST location - right on the beach, where you can walk at low tide, and the water is right under your balcony at high tide, and the views just can't be beat....

Overall the Inn was great! The room & furniture are older but the room was very clean. We did get a view of the ocean from our deck and we had easy access to the beach. They had a courtyard which was nice for the children to run around. There is no AC in the room and that particular weekend... More
