We got transferred to the Ocean Crest when our online booking company tried to put us into another hotel that was already fully booked. The room was sufficiently large, clean and with a decent washroom. Parking was a bit tight (narrow spots)

This is a traditional kind of roadside motel. It's EXTREMELY clean, and comfortable. Rooms obviously modernized (including bathroom fixtures). Good beds and linens. Has all the usual amenities. Good quality coffee maker, TV, etc. Has a modern, effective electric baseboard heater with simple controls and temp display. Quiet, well soundproofed. Friendly staff. Looks family run and they obviously take pride in it.

We stopped by this motel on our recent trip to the area. We've stayed a few times over the past few years. It's clean, quiet and the service is wonderful. It isn't flash but it's perfectly adequate for a night or a week. We love the location... within walking distance of 4 good quality restaurants and right across the road from the world famous Qualicum beach.

Our party of two adult couples stayed at the Ocean Crest motel in Qualicum Beach. We reserved two rooms and the price was very reasonable. This is pretty much a classic Mom and Pop run motel. It will remind you of a US roadside motel from the 1960s and 1970s I think there are about twenty rooms. The rooms were clean and the amenities were spartan. One of our rooms had a kitchenette and the other had a small refrigerator. The owners were very accommodating. It was rather warm during our stay and the rooms do have air conditioning. The AC is rather loud at night and does not regulate the temperature particularly well. The location is across the highway from the beach. It is probably 2-3 miles from motel to city center. There is free parking at the motel. The pricing was very reasonable and it was much more comfortable for us to stay in two rooms instead of crowding into one. Overall, this exceeded my expectations.

Dear valued guest BBrownHouTex, Thank you for choosing Ocean Crest Motel for your visit to beautiful Qualicum Beach! I believe the expression, no frills, is very fitting, and our business is a family business, run by my parents and myself! Our family try to take very good care of our rooms and its premises and I am glad to hear that it is reflected in your review. I am also pleased to hear that your experience with our property was beyond your expectations. We will continue to work very hard to make sure your next visits will be as enjoyable or even better. I apologize for your experience with the air conditioning unit. We have been switching the older models of the A/Cs over last couple of years, and few are still left to be upgraded. However, by this summer of 2019, we should have all the units with upgraded A/Cs that are more quite and self-regulating. On behalf of our staffs and family, I would like to thank you again for your support for our business and hope to see you in the near future! Warmest Wishes, Andy

Stayed here with family for three nights. No frills, but it’s clean and spacious. The beds were fine. There is a fridge in the room. The A/C works well and isn’t too loud. We had three people and they kept only giving us two towels, but would give is a third if we walked to the office and asked. Bring your own shampoo and conditioner as the hotel shampoo comes in a little packet and isn’t great. Hotel staff are friendly and courteous. This hotel is fine and is cheaper than others in the area. We will stay again.
