We booked online and paid for an upgrade to have a terrace but didn't realize it would be the choice location for the dog owners as well. We love dogs but not when they bark all night long in the room next to you. I finally called the front desk at 1:30 am when it started to

Corri, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay. We're sorry that your sleep was disturbed by the dog and its people in the room next to you. However, it is difficult for us to resolve problems like this unless we are made aware of them. We do have a record of your only call to the Front Desk to complain about the noisy dog. But, after our Night Auditor spoke to the people in the room, which you mentioned you heard, we have no record of any communication from you regarding further problems. As far as we knew, the problem was solved. At check out, I explained to the gentleman representing your room, that it is not possible for us to solve a problem of which we were unaware, and that in the future, in any hotel, please don't wait until the problem is huge before asking for assistance. If a problem persists after the first attempt to remedy it, please call the front desk for additional assistance. Hotels all have policies and procedures to solve these kinds of issues, and these procedures include the option of having a problem guest removed from the premises by the police, if necessary. However, we rely on our guests to continue to communicate with us so that we can solve this sort of problem. When we fail to solve problems which have been brought to our attention, compensation is quickly forthcoming. Our hotel is a pet friendly hotel, and pets may be encountered on floors other than the one where your room is located. Perhaps you will understand our point of view and give us another chance some time in the future. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Our suite is very spartan and the hotel a bit tired. A great scenic location, but disappointing. A few details will make it great, a rug in the sitting room, a few pictures on the walls, some coastal info about what we’re looking at, a sharp knife! The restaurant is good with

We’ve had to stay at the ocean front for a week. It has been wonderful. We have a daughter and two big dogs. The staff has been so welcoming and kind. The house keeping is phenomenal. The room is beautiful and comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel.

Great space in the suite and comfy bed. The room had a fabulous view and right next to cow bay road with lots of fabulous shops. Loved listening to the sea lions. Hallways a bit dated but rooms and restaurant very good.

No balcony in my room. The was a large window with a breathtaking view. As for being updated, I can’t tell. All looks well to me. Clean, appliances working, comfortable bed. If you decide to go there, make sure to have their body Caesar: the best I ever had! And the waffle with blueberries.
