My girlfriend and I stayed for a month and because of how dirty the place was both my girlfriend and I picked up a bacteria that is a direct cause from unclean living space and has left us scarred all over. Just look at the pictures see for yourself.

We were attending a family wedding at the Brentwood College and many of our family stayed at this motel. It has a spectacular view and is in walking distance of the college, a marina with a fabulous restaurant (Bridgeman's) and a Mill Bay Shopping Center with a variety of stores. We had a king size bed in a room on... More

Our family of about 25 people stayed here for a Bentwood Collage wedding. the motel is rustic, clean & comfortable. Every room is unique. We had a big family lunch on the premises & we couldn't have asked for a better setting, the ocean view is breathtaking & peaceful. staff was pleasant & helpful :)

We just had a baseball tournament in the area and half of the team stayed here and the other half at another location (mostly because of fears about some of the reviews). Do not be scared of the bad reviews, this hotel is great! The half that stayed at the other place really missed out! The rooms are large, the... More

Worst hotel I have ever stayed at, avoid it. No AC, worn out carpet, torn screens, plumbing from the 1960's, linen from the dollar store. Nice view of ocean was the only good thing. Wireless Internet was so so connection. Light shines right into bedroom window at night with no way to cover up the window. Needs serious renovations.

We invited all our guests to stay at the Deer Lodge, for our weekend wedding. We held the ceremony and reception off-site, but had a welcome BBQ on-site. We loved the Deerlodge! The views are stunning and the grounds are filled with flowers (in the summer). But the part that really sold it for us, was the exceptional customer service... More

My husband and I, who stayed here between July 9 - 12, 2012 and our two grown sons each had rooms at this lovely motel while we attended a wedding. It was clean, comfortable and very affordable. Best of all, the caretakers were extremely friendly and welcoming, as well as helpful. As one of the other guest so succinctly stated;... More

This review is to let other know that this is a sweet little place. Thr grounds are gorgeaous and we found it very friendly. We often would go away to the cabin for the weekend and that has this kind of feeling. If you are a mid range budget seeker with needs for a great view, quiet sleep, clean stay,... More

Just a few minutes North of Victoria's hustle and bustle is a relaxing way station along the way. That would be the Deer Lodge at Mill Bay. If you confuse Techno with nice forget it. If you confuse ostentatious with class go back to Victoria. But if you equate value with views and amenities then go for it. I had... More

This motel is a blast from the past. Our unit was a large one bedroom with a woodburning fireplace in the living room, and kitchen. The furnishings and decor were definitely 70's which impressed my 14 year old son - hey mom, RETRO!! We were very comfortable here, however the unit had not been used for quite some time because...
