#8 of 10 hotels in Vancouver Island
The Lighthouse Motel is the perfect location any time of year to escape from life's stresses and relax. Our property fronts directly on the ocean overlooking the Strait of Georgia, Hornby Island and the snow capped Coastal Mountain Range. Our hotel is located on the waterfront of peaceful Qualicum Bay, approximately 10 minutes north of Qualicum Beach. We offer affordable accommodation that is perfect for families, couples, or individuals looking for some rest and relaxation. We are a pet-friendly hotel, so you can bring along your furry family member! We are centrally located for day trips to the Parkville-Qualicum area for activities such as hiking, kayaking, skiing and snowboarding, golfing and fishing. For those who just want to enjoy the warm sea air, sit back on the expansive seawall and enjoy a good book or just take in the view, along with the eagles, kingfishers, herons and other wildlife we have the privilege of watching.

Small room. Huge high bed. Shower was wonderful. Bed was comfortable. Lots of light in room. Very clean. The only thing that bothered me was the doors are coded with no keys. You have to punch in a code which was told to me outside my room door a few times and then tried by the manager. I did not feel completely relaxed after that as I was travelling alone and could not help but wonder who else might have heard her telling me the code as well. Also, I am hoping these door codes are changed in between guests?

We booked the room a week in advance and asked if we could have early checkin, they did not see a problem with this, we arrived around noon and our room was ready, she showed us to our room, coffee,tea, creamers in the fridge, room overlooked the ocean, inside room was spotless, i used to work for a hotel, so i did the high low test, and no dust at all was impressed, only complaint i had was the outside window which has your view was dirty with cobwebs, grass cuttings, so it was not a nice view out, All in all a very nice and clean motel

Thank you for the positive review of our motel. We work very hard to ensure the rooms are cleaned really well. I agree that window overlooking the sea wall needed a good cleaning and I apologize that this was not done. It is the window that tends to get dirtier given that it is located so close to the ocean. I have cleaned the entire window and screen, inside and out and will ensure that this is done regularly. I hope to see you again should you be in our area. Barbara M.

We stayed here in early September on our way up Island. First look had us a little bit worried, but owners were very pleasant, and the room was very clean and appeared to have been updated recently. And it had everything we needed included coffee/tea supplies and some dishes if you wanted to have a small meal or snacks. Wine glasses were even chilling in the fridge! And the patio area right on the ocean, set up with tables, chairs, umbrellas and bbqs was really great. We would certainly stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here last night and are very pleased. Nice, quiet little place where you can relax on the shore of the bay. Not fancy but very stylish, comfy and cozy. Nice little touches that make you feel comfy and appreciated.Check-in was wonderfully friendly, welcoming and easy. If you are in the front building (we were) there is a bit of noise from the highway so be prepared for that. There is no cable so DVD Movies are available in the office.Selection is a bit aged but there are lots for kids! Beautiful space on the waterfront to sit, relax and gaze at the Coastal Mountains. The tide was high during the daylight hours while we were there but looks like it offers great beachcombing on low tides. Although the weather wasn't right for it for us, there are BBQs, Patio Tables with Umbrellas and a Community Firepit at the edge of the beach that we definately would have taken advantage of. Great eatery places close by to choose from as well. I will definately be recommending this little gem to friends and family.
