Our room was reasonable, clean, warm and comfortable. This basic room had a refrigerator, coffee maker, TV etc. Kitchenettes are available but for a couple of days we made do with snacks and ready made food from the Qualicum Quality Foods that we could store in the fridge and on top of the chest of drawers for the dry goods....

Ocean Crest motel was very nice, both clean and quiet, and priced better than rent for the month I stayed! The host - gracious, and he always gave me a smile and a wave. Lots of hot water for a shower, wifi never cut out, well-stocked kitchenette. I'd recommend Ocean Crest for long-term accommodation.

Very nice and helpful owners with a well maintained and more then adequate accommodations. This was great value for the money and would recommend to anyone staying in the area. There were also some good restaurants close by, and the beach/shore is right across the road to walk over to. Great experience overall!

What a lovely experience! We walked into a very clean, large, two queen sized beds and well lit room. The extra touches were folded napkins in our coffee cups, the shower curtain was fanned through the shower bar and the two chairs and luncheon table was a huge bonus. We loved the outdoor patio! Apparently they have small kitchenette rooms...

Nothing too fancy here, probably a 3-star place to be honest, but we all had an awesome nights sleep so I'm bumping them up to 4-stars. It's across the street from the beach, but due to the way the motel is built you only get a view of the parking lot. The rooms are simple and clean if a bit...

We needed a quick one night stop on our way through Qualicum and with low rates & very good reviews, this sounded great! I called & the man was pleasant, communicated well and booked us in. When we arrived, I noticed that while it may be across the street from the water, rows of businesses block any possibility of a...

We booked here after having checked the area for availability and a reasonable rate. This little gem was clean, tidy, priced right and had very nice folks running the place. Definitely was a good value for the cost. Just happened to be here during a Show & Shine car show in the Town and a dozen or so of the...
