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

Dear Hajsgaard, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased you found our location to be convenient and Horseshoe Bay “cozy”. You were here in July which is our peak season. Our rate for a standard room for two people was $128 (CAD) plus tax which was (is) completely in line with what other properties... 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. )...

Dear Mr. Harper, Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. We are very grateful for your comments. I regret that you found the bed a bit firm. It is hard to please everyone. Another party who stayed in the same room as you, commented that a firmer mattress would have improved their sleep so we... More

King size bed, walkin shower, quiet, clean and free parking and free WiFi made it a perfect stay for our last night in Canada for drying our tent, clothes and utilities before flying home. It is well situated, close to the waterfront and thereby situated restaurants and bars for the evening.

A great little motel for being the only one in town. Have stayed twice and will be a third, I am sure. Our last stay we were lucky as it was the last room available. The beds were quite small so slept seperately that night for comfort reasons and the room was located by the maids room. So you can... More

Chose to spend the night to make the first ferry in the morning. The staff were very helpful with directions. The newly renovated bathroom was a treat after roughing it for a few days. We would stay again!
