This older motel was updated for the 2010 Olympics, and the rooms are quite nice. The only problem is that is can be noisy from conversations outside the rooms' windows (they need to be open as there is no air conditioning owing to the normal coolness of the nights in Horseshoe Bay). The motel is very close to restaurants and... More

If you are taking the ferry to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island or need an affordable hotel while visiting Vancouver proper this is a great place. Quaint little hotel next to ferry terminal and in town of Horseshoe Bay, next to a bus stop at ferry terminal that will wisk you into and back from Vancouver proper at all times of... More

We stayed there for 2 nights before we took the ferry over to Vancouver Island. It is a very old motel but so clean and the staff go out of their way to make your stay great. They were having a heat wave and it is not air conditioned but they had placed fans in each room. It is right... More

Given that this motel is likely to be a 1 night stop for the ferry to Vancouver Island, my wife & I were really impressed by the friendly welcome (& departure) that we received. The room was both comfortable & well appointed with good furniture. We were also given good advice on where to eat, how to access the ferry,... More

At such a good price, great location from the Ferry to Nanaimo, this place was too good to be true. I needed to make a last-minute reservation to catch the ferry to head over to Vancouver Island. There was absolutely nothing available under $500/night!!! Then I happened across Horseshoe Bay Motel. I called immediately and the woman on the phone... More

We were traveling to Vancouver Island and spent two nights. Close to ferries and Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Small older motel with renovated rooms. The rooms were very clean. Staff was great with giving us help on local tourist attractions. They also let us park our car there after checkout until we caught the ferry. Walking distance to shops and... More

North Shore Vancouver hotels were totally booked due to the Women's' Soccer Finals and the Jazz Festival. We booked a room in this motel in the lovely village of Horseshoe Bay a 15 minute drive from our appointments. The motel is older but very clean with very helpful staff. It is only a long block walk to a park on... More

Great little motel with very friendly staff. But getting to it was not easy if you don't know how :) Hint: Take the "Ferry Traffic" turn off and follow the signs to the "Village" of Horseshoe Bay. It will look like you are heading into the ferry lineup, but the single lane heading to the water is taking you to... More

The rooms are beautiful. Actual coffee mugs and glass for drinking. Coffee, tea, and chocolate. Kind, attentive, helpful staff. Elegant furnishings. The hotel itself is simple, motel style, the only accommodations in beautiful Horseshoe Bay. Numerous restaurant options.

A clean, well appointed motel. The rooms are spacious,well maintained and very pleasing. A family owned and run facility close to everything in the village of Horseshoe Bay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rates are very reasonable. We intend returning for another weekend in the near future.
