We were in desperate need of 3 rooms on a Saturday night in July...a hard thing to do on the island. We called the Fuller Lake Motel and the owner was very accommodating even though he was stressed with his wife being in hospital. He provided 3 clean rooms. Hotel is older and needs to be updated, but all in... More

Needed a basic room for 1 night. After arrival, decided to upgrade to suite with kitchen/living room. That new room was not ready, but manager immediately went and finished cleaning it himself. Super helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious, the bed was comfortable. This hotel is labeled 1-star, but is better than some 3-star places. Great value.

We were cycling from Mill Bay to Chemainus and spent one night here. Plenty of hot water and a spacious bath tub, very clean, but otherwise unremarkable. A restaurant next door, Haida Way, was available for meals and the food was good although the service was very slow -- the place was busy and short-staffed.

No breakfast served here, however there is a family diner right next door that serves a decent breakfast. The hotel is basic, Our room was clean, it was all we needed for the night. They have air conditioning, flat screen tv's and free wifi.

DO NOT STAY Here, Room was not cleaned for the whole 5 days we were there. Had to go get our own clean towels. Ran out of hot water. Was just disgusted. Do not recommend this motel. Had a coffee pot but only enough coffee for one pot. Love the area but not this motel.

We only stayed here for 2 nights but this motel was miles better than our previous ones. The room was spotless as well as the area around it. The gentleman who attended to us was fantastic. Not only did the room have coffee/tea facilities but it was a coffee machine and the coffee was great. You could sit outside the... More

Just a quick drive down the hill to Chemainus and all of those lovely murals, the Fuller Lake Motel is a very good value for a clean, comfortable room. The front desk is friendly, efficient, and helpful. We got some good tips for visiting the town and even through the ice maker was not working, we got a tray of... More

Clean, basic, with firm clean beds. Lots of road noise, but for the price, a decent place. Coffee in room, recently updated, newer a/c unit, white sheets. Free wifi which had good speed, no nonsense service.

Yup - there is noise from the highway but for the price this place charges you are not going to get a quaint off the highway room. I appreciated the earplugs I travel with. The room was basic, comfortable bed, bar fridge, coffee maker,microwave. It could have used an extra small table though. It was clean and recently re-decorated with... More
