My wife, 3-year old daughter and I enjoyed a 2-night stay at the Sand Pebbles Inn (motel) in July.
We had a really good experience although I think that's mostly due to the amazing location above the beach (high tide literally hits the wall below the motel) and the constant perfect temperature of Qualicum Beach.
As other reviewers have noted the motel is pretty dated in terms of decor. Our room was a bit small for us (an extra room for our daughter would have been better). We had a corner room (112). Although our living room did have a small window to the ocean our patio actually faced the other rooms - not the ocean. Most rooms are like this. This means you can look into all the other rooms. Still, that's not hard to fix, as you can simply turn your chair and look at the ocean instead. We found this amusing. Some people might get annoyed.
The motel was pretty quiet for July, which was nice. Next door is the The Beach House Cafe, which is very convenient for an evening meal on the patio. A 5 min walk down the beach is the 'beach hut' for ice cream and hot dogs, hamburgers. The other side has the local city information centre.
