Yes, it is close to the ferry. Neat location near restaurants and shops. Very clean and friendly service but... My bill for one night which included two adults and our dog was $167.00. This motel is only ranked #1 because it us the only one in the area. The room was stifling hot because there is no air conditioning and... More

We stopped here for a night before heading into Vancouver for the day (and then continuing on out east) and I was pleased with the motel. The room was quite nice with a very beautiful bathtub/shower. Definitely better than I expected, though I'm not sure it really pushes them into the 'boutique' category they'd like to be included in. (what... More

We'd travelled from Tofino en-route to Vancouver for a 6 night stay there. Rather than have another nights stay in Vancouver itself we decided to have a night in Horshoe Bay, somewhere we've visited before but never stayed. Check-in was easy, the room we had booked we were told had a very firm bed which some find too firm and... More

This is definitely the place to stay over for a night or two if you are traveling to the island and back. Nice room, great personal service from the staff and so close to the ferry makes it the place to stay in town. All of the restaurants are only a minute or two walk from the motel and the... More

While a tad pricey, the classic Horseshoe Bay Motel was just fine for a one night stay before the ferry to Nanaimo. The one surprise was that we actually had to drive a couple of miles back up the highway in order to re-descend to the ferry landing and approach. It didn't matter - we enjoyed exploring the tiny village... More

I reluctantly turned my key in the door, stepped into the Room, turned on the light, and my jaw dropped onto the beautifully-carpeted floor. The classical furniture is gorgeous, the TV is huge, the bathroom is beautiful, there is a mountain of soft pillows, the trim and paint are exquisite, and the carpeting, as I mentioned, is beautiful. There's absolutely... More

We stopped here for an overnight on a road trip from Calgary. Loved it!! This adorable little motel knocked our socks off!! It was clean and quaint. The lovely lady at the front desk was friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The room has some interesting antique furniture and decorated somewhat over the top but it suited it and it was... More

Christmas Day arrival and the desk clerk was very helpful and informative. We needed driving directions and she repeated them patiently several times in her sweet British accent. Seemed like this may be family owned and operated.. .

We stayed here one night as a convenient place for catching the morning ferry to Nanaimo. We had a clean but standard motel room. The staff was friendly and parking free. There is no breakfast served, but there are a number of coffee places that open early in the morning close by. The route to the ferry was somewhat obscure... More

We stayed here the night before getting the ferry to Nanaimo as it was handily placed for the ferry terminal. (Actually if you're driving then you do have to drive around 5km away from the motel to get onto the correct side of highway 1 so that you can get into the ferry terminal but that's no hardship really. )...
