We were happy to find something so close to the ferry what would accommodate our small dog, but we were dismayed to find that no matter how long we ran the water, it never got warm, let alone hot. We arrived late (around 9:30 pm) and found that the motel parking lot was full so we had to park on... More

We arrived at 3am after Amtrak was late arriving. The room was SMALL but clean. I didn't get to speak to any of the staff really but I will say that when I left a dress at the hotel they had tried to contact me immediately. I am not knocking the hotel but I do want others to know that... More

We really just needed a place to stay to catch the ferry the next morning, and were very happy with the motel. Staff was friendly and very helpful with info re: ferry times and tips. It is further from the ferry terminal than you might expect, but still quite close. Clean rooms, close to restaurants etc. Convenient computer use by... More

We were on a road trip from Seattle. Our accommodations on the trip ranged from $123 per night (plus taxes) at Horseshoe Bay motel, to $170 (plus taxes). However, in all the other accommodations we were provided with full bathrooms, a closet, coffee making appliances, good furniture and decent beds. In a couple of them we had lovely views, ample...

Dear Jennyx, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Your feedback is very important to us; guest reviews help us to improve our overall services. We regret that your experience with us was less than satisfactory. You are quiet right in reporting that we had a mechanical problem which resulted in lukewarm water rather than hot water... More

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
