This Motel Inn is very old outside but will surprise you inside. The rooms are very clean with good beds and provisions. The managers were only new but very helpful. 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

The Sand Pebbles Hotel at Qualicum Beach does not set out to provide luxury accommodation, but is in such a beautiful setting that its lack of amenities can be forgiven. There is no bar, no restaurant, no lounge - only rooms; but the hotel could not be closer to the sea, set on the water's edge overlooking the bay. Having... More

Just stayed there Sept 1, 2013 Staff friendly and helpful, great room overlooking the ocean, clean and well kept, a little tired and could use some TLC for the price. Very short walk to a few eateries, fuel service close by.

Comfortable, clean, basic units with fantastic views. We enjoyed our stay here with extended family. Too bad the tide came in by late afternoon so there was no sandy beach in the evening...but sitting on the comfy deck chairs, enjoying wine and the lulling effect of the waves (or was it the wine?!) more than made up for the lack...
