Our room was clean, beds comfortable and rates reasonable. Continental breakfast and 18-hole mini golf included. Easy walk to sandy beaches, restaurants and town centre. Motel was full, mainly families and quiet the night we were there. Would stay there again.

Hotel was pretty basic but the rates were very reasonable. Not big on staying inside when on a trip so a clean place to sleep is what I need. This motel had probably the most friendly staff I've ever encountered. Will return here whenever in town. Free mini golf, nice staff and a clean room!

I haven't been to this motel but I can certainly tell you that the customer service is disgusting. My son was ill and we missed our ferry. When I called I talked to a lady who said that I would be charged a $30 cancellation fee. Then she passed me off to someone else who said that he would charge... More

Our official cancellation policy is 48 hours notice prior to your date of arrival. Our new staff member who initially answered the call did incorrectly inform you of the cancellation policy, upon your request to cancel due to a late ferry. However in realization of the error, the motel managers addressed the call to clear any confusion. Noting your reservation... More

My family had a very comfortable stay here. Our room was much nicer than expected and very clean, you can clearly tell that management is working very hard on rennovations and I'm sure it will look even better when complete. Breakfast in the morning is included which made me very happy. The motel is right next to a mini golf... More

We saw the paradise seashell motel first through booking.com. I called and discussed the booking directly with the hotel. In doing so I thought I was upgrading to a nicer room and a newly renovated one. I was so impressed that I even booked for an additional night. When we got there my heart sank. We asked to see the...

We are sorry to hear about your disappointment with the room, we did offer to place you in a different room that was up to your standards and newly renovated. Unfortunately in the event of disrespect towards our staff and ourselves, against company conduct, we gladly cancelled your reservation and waived the cancellation fee. Thank you for taking the time... More

This was a nice, older, but clean motel with very comfortable beds, great rates, pet friendly, close to ocean, breakfast included along with passes to the Mini Golf next door and close enough to restaurants that you can walk to. No air conditioning in our room though, which made for a not so comfortable sleep.

This quaint motel right off the highway offers dog rooms with outdoor entrances which we prefer. New owners are trying to spruce up rooms with renos, ours was dated but clean and comfy bed, good size with fridge, microwave and flatscreen. The included mini golf was awesome and a great bonus.

Despite having acquired a "too good to be true" deal on Hotels.com, I should have been more wary. I try not to judge a book by its cover but in this case, it was a struggle. My "sleeper room" was small and had only a shower, sink and toilet. That was ok because I wasn't anticipating a luxurious suite. What... More

Right off the scenic old island highway - super close to ocean - free round of mini golf and free breakfast and wifi. You can't go wrong for the price. Room was satisfactory, looks newly painted, bed was comfy. Free parking! We stopped here on our way to Tofino and it was perfect, thanks!
