We picked this motel as a convenient stopover near the ferry to Vancouver Island. Really warm welcome by the reception staff, including lots of helpful advice - an excellent recommendation for dinner, and detailed instructions and timings for getting to the ferry port the next morning. Room itself was fairly old fashioned, but large, clean and comfortable, with a nice... More

My circumstances returning from Vancouver Island necessitated either stop over somewhere between Horseshoe Bay and Chilliwack. As I travel with my dog, I was definitely looking for pet friendly accommodation - it is! For various reasons, I chose Horseshoe Bay and the Horseshoe Bay Motel. And am I ever glad that I did. Quiet and unassuming from the inside, I... More

An average motel made better by the welcoming desk staff.Rooms are clean and comfortable.There was a lot of noise early in the morning (5am) but thats not the fault of the motel owners, rather than unthinking people in the nearby rooms. Its an ideal location for the ferry and the village is quite pretty, but i thought the motel was... More

We booked this hotel purely due to its close proximity to the ferry to the Island. We arrived after travelling from the UK and were exhausted. We found exactly what was needed after being awake for so long - super friendly and efficient desk staff (keys were handed over with no fuss) The rooms were a delight - clean, comfortable,... More

We stayed here on our way from the airport to Whistler. It is a nice out of the way area with nice views and nice place to walk near the ferry landing. There are nice restaurants nearby and coffee shops. We arrived late at night so I don't know what shopping is nearby. We had a suite and it was... More

Wanted to stay near the ferries and the was the only motel. Didn't expect to find such a nice motel. The room was clean and comfortable. We had a king size bed and small refrigerator. Close to the ferries and restaurants. A great place to stay. Air conditioning was marginal given the heat and humidity we had (unusual for August).... More

Booked well in advance of our stay as we were on the 8.30 ferry next morning and wanted to ensure we were as close as possible.

You can tell this motel is not part of some nationwide chain. It feels personal. The service is personal and super friendly. The decor and furnishings in the rooms feel personal -- like the actual owner took the time to think and consider what people might like to have in a hotel room, rather than following a corporate manual for...
