First looks are good as you pull into a level parking lot (level is is important when parking the motorcycle)... A rare thing in Powell River, and old factory town stuck to the sides of the surrounding mountains. The hosts were friendly and quiet accommodating,,, you would like another pillow, no problem, ice machine is right over there, you need... More

I have no idea how it can be named "The Island View" for the only view our room had to the parking lot (as well as most of the rooms) But to add to that, the rooms that did not have a view of the parking lot, had a view of the disgusting pulp mill. When we arrived to our... More

Disappointing when you've reserved a room, taken hours to travel up to Powell River, and then there's nobody there, the office is closed, no one picks up the phone, & there's no after-hours number. Surprised they didn't bother to call a guest that had pre-booked and let them know they were closing their office before the last ferry arrives in... More

The onsite managers were very accomadating and friendly with lots of tips on places to see and visit. Most rooms have a very nice view of the ocean. The townsite where it is located is being revitalised and has... More

I travel to Powell River 5 to 6 times per year and have tried a variety of hotels in the area. I have found the Island View Lodge to be the best value for your buck. The rooms are dated but clean, quiet neighbourhood and the shower is amazing; excellent water pressure here. It's conveniently located in the historical Old... More

Clean, convenient, reasonably priced and run by nice people. It's only draw back is that it is beside the Granada restaurant, the good news is that is is a short walk to Magpies, the best restaurant on the sunshine coast.

A basic, clean motel with everything you need for a safe and comfortable stay. If you're used to five star, you won't like it. If you love toodling around small town BC, you will find this the perfect place to lay your head. Friendly staff, good water pressure! Located in the old townsite, just a few minutes from the main...
