I loved this unique motel. It's located just a stones throw from the ferry. The staff was friendly and very professional. It is just down the street from cute little shops , restaurants and even a small grocery store that came in very handy for those late night snacks. The rooms were cute, comfortable and very clean. There is no... More

1. It's way too expensive. This motel is'nt worth the price. 2. There is noch a/c in the rooms. Not okay on a night at august. 3. The pillows are very uncomfortable. So finally it's a motel very near at the ferry station. But this is the only positive point. Unfortunately they don't offer any breakfast. So, no, won't visit... More

When making my reservation, the staff member who answered the phone gave me great advice on the ferry. At the hotel, the staff member there told us all about things to do on Vancouver Island. She even printed us out directions. Because of her, we had a fantastic time in Coombs before heading to our destination. Thank you very much!... More

This motor inn is exceedingly well run. The staff are friendly, helpful, and professional. Parking is convenient, and there are restaurants and a grocery nearby. The rooms are very clean and very comfortable. I look forward to staying here again.

This is a smaller motel close to the Gibsons and Nanaimo Ferries. Front desk staff very pleasant, rooms very small, mould around the shower caulking, beds hard as rock, but the motel overall for a old property is in fact well maintained and I commend ownership for maintaining quality control. The Price however is simply a rip off for what... More

Nice rooms, quiet area and nice friendly people at the front desk. Wi-Fi is a bit sketchy, but other than that a good sleep and a quiet town. I would stay here again, this is my second time staying here.

This is the only motel/hotel in the community, and the night we arrived, after booking in advance, nearby hotels were charging $400 a night to people waiting to cross on the ferry or who came to see the Festival of Lights in Vancouver. This hotel honoured our reservation at $138. Our room was comfortable but basic. There was a microwave,... More

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
