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... More

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... More

We stayed 3 nights here while attending a wedding in Qualicum Beach. Bed was comfortable enough, room was very clean, decor was dated but everything worked just fine. If you're looking to spend your days at the beach and an affordable room to sleep in at night, this is a great place. I would definitely consider coming back here and... More

Stayed for a night – there aren’t many options at Qualicum Beach, and Ocean Crest Motel is rather decent, clean and affordable; interior decor is a little dated, but no issues at all for a 1 night stay. There is access to the beach across the street.

This motel is pretty non- descript. Rooms are clean, but older and the furnishings are dated. TV was small; wifi worked well; towels and bedding were clean. Room was well priced for a one-night stay and checkout was at noon which gave me extra time for my morning routine before packing up. No view of the ocean unless you stand... More

Hotel rooms are in very good repair and clean and quiet. Small beer fridge and little coffee pot. The coffee mugs have napkins folded inside which adds a nice little touch. Decor is a bit outdated though; the older style of bedspreads and cute little covers on the chairs to hide the older upholstery. But the beds were comfy and... More

This was a good place to stay over in Qualicum Beach to explore the area. Not far from Parksville, and the beach is right across the road. No ocean views from the rooms unfortunately as the hotel is facing a 90 degree angle to the ocean, but you can see it from the shared balcony/walkway to the upstairs room. Everything... More

We stayed three nights and found the room quite comfortable, it was clean and had no smell, we had a fridge and coffee maker, there was a table and two chairs which was great to have a meal on, and there was a desk. We were close to the outdoor BBQ and patio which is there if you want to... More

The room was nice and big with a table situated in front of a bay window. The beds are slightly hard and the decor is a little old fashioned. The bathroom is nice with the sink outside of it. Overall this room was affordable and was all we needed for that night.
