Peter Park, charming manager, gave us a newly renowated room with all amendities expected in a motel. Great views across the discovery passage on the balcony and from the bed! Very clean room and friendly staff. Stopped their twice during our holidays on Vancouver Island.

This is an older, well maintained motel with a beautiful view of the ocean. We had a main floor suite with a separate bedroom, large balcony, fridge, hot plate and decent Wi-Fi. They are renovating rooms upstairs right now but we never heard any noise from that. It's about a 10 minute walk to downtown and dining. Walk south from... More

The room was not fancy, but it was very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. It is very close to the Campbell River Museum and also the Heritage Centre, both of which are must sees. Our balcony overlooked the Discovery Passage between Vancouver Island and Quadra Island. We watched seals and a sea lion swim by... More

If you want fancy furniture and granite countertops this is NOT the hotel for you But if you want good value, cleanliness, a great location, and some character then you'll be very happy here. The owners were very friendly and provided assistance immediately when required. I would stay here again.

If your travel style is "value" you can't have everything, but it's great if you have something special. Here it's the view. All rooms have private balconies on a bluff right over the ocean. We saw a bald eagle and otters while eating our breakfast. Room is dated but fine. It's actually a suite with a separate (2nd) bedroom which... More

Cinder block walls, stained carpets, bedding from the 50's, furniture worn, beds not comfortable though wifi was ok. We booked this hotel because of the ratings and were very disappointed. There was a nice view of the river but seeing a rat trap just below our balcony in the grass was not very appealing either. Garbage had been thrown off... More

Pulled up to the motel, outside it doesn't look like much. Was pleasantly surprised when we went inside though! All new hardwood floors, new paint, new bathroom, new everything! We were given a 1 bedroom on the bottom floor. Every room (it looks like) has a balcony overlooking the gorgeous ocean. Sun rises over Quadra Island, directly across from the... More

The hotel overlooks Discovery passage, and is conveniently situated across the road from the award-winning Campbell RIver Musuem. The rooms are clean, and the rates are reasonable, Most of all, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the cruise ships negotiate Discovery passage.

The place is old and could use some attention. Having said that it was clean and although certainly not fancy had a good sleep. The staff was friendly and polite. The view provided made up for some of the maintenance issues.

Amazing motel. Views tdf. New owner very accommodating - he actually carried my case upstairs/unheard of! Fab room. Felt newly refurbed, clean, fresh, comprehensively filled kitchenette, ice via reception (good for your own G&T), wifi OK but might need to stand outside your front door, and an easy walk into town and the ferry to Quadra (go, hire a bike,...
