Really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We really appreciated the complimentary breakfast and the incredible views! Very comfortable and clean - the kitchen was well-appointed.

I stay here for work. Very acceptable. Staff is very friendly and try to fix any problems as soon as possible. The location is excellent, right on water. If you have children there is a safe play area. I would recommend this place for a get away from the hectic pace of your life

After years of travelling from hotel to hotel with my husband, I consider myself a pretty good judge of travel accommodations. I'm very picky about housekeeping and customer service issues. I'm hard to please, just ask my husband! I'm incredibly surprised by some of the reviews for Oceanside, as after four years of visits here, several times a year I... More

I'm surprised at some of the comments on this site regarding Oceanside as I have personally stayed at this lodge 5 times now in the last 3 & 1/2 years. Just returned home from a 4-day stay, this time in cabin H and couldn't wait to check-in. I have personally stayed in 3 of their cabins on the water now... More

My family has made it a priority to all come together on the May long weekend at Oceanside for a few years now. This was the first time my husband and I along with our 2 kids aged almost 4 and almost 2 decided to stay on site with everyone. In saying that, we did join them last year for... More

For the discerning traveller, interested in the real parts if life, great people, gréât service, clean respectable rooms, not just same old drywall and paint! Unique, not for the bourgeoisie! Situated beside a gem of a regional marine park- tidal flats, island, good swimming (July/august), walking, campfires!

We saw a brochure for this place while on the evening ferry. The price for a room, which is all we needed for the night, looked reasonable for off season, and the photos promised a middle of the road sort of place in an extraordinary setting. Everything in the room was steeped in tobacco, The floors were grubby and sticky,... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on TripAdvisor, I'm sorry our establishment did not meet your expectations. The maintenance crew has been made aware of the issues in the cabin that need immediate attention. Cleaning staff has been shown where improvements are required. At the time of your stay we had a large crew of tree... More

I went there with my husband and 2 year old son. Although it seems a little run-down (like it's heyday was a few years ago), we thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is great (right on the water). We stayed in a 2-bedroom unit (with loft). It was very comfortable. Our son liked the playground and we spent a lot of... More

We have stayed at the Oceanside resort three times now. My boyfriend and I grew up in Powell River and come home as often as we can. At least twice a year. We stay at the resort because it is so dog friendly and our two bulldogs love it. I love the rustic cabins, that are very clean and cozy.... More

I stayed at this hotel for four long days. I did not even feel comfortable leaving my belongings when I left for the day. Its a trailer park.... children are running around unsupervised. Parents are drinking and smoking pot. The staff were also drinking, and driving around in a golf cart under the influence. The bed and bedding was disgusting!!... More
