We walked in and the owners were very helpful in accommodating us. We had a patio room facing the ocean with a kitchenette. The view from our patio was just gorgeous. We watched an absolutely fantastic sunset. I would recommend this place to my friends.

It's a motel, but a five star motel. Right on the water, very easy reservation and check in processes with folks willing to field all our questions. Clean, and well-situated for a post ferry stopover on the eastern shore of Vancouver Is,and before heading across island to the other coast.

Such a disappointment. Thought I was going to be staying in a nice beachside resort and instead I got mild, rust stains, stinky smells and grime. I can deal with dated decor but a dirty room is inexcusable. Waterfront balcony room did not face the water and had no view unless you went outside and looked sideways. Nonsmoking room had... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that the room you rented did not meet your expectations. From your photo I see that you rented one of our ocean view balcony rooms which does have lovely views from the balcony. Our ocean front rooms have an unobstructed view from anywhere in the room except the bathrooms. All of our... More

We needed a night's accommodation between Victoria and Tofino and Debbie graciously accommodated us. The rooms are large with sitting and eating areas, efficiency kitchen, wifi, and deck overlooking ocean - if you are looking for a clean, safe stay with a gorgeous ocean view this is for you. Do not expect the Ritz or room service - this is... More

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
