We were just traveling through and only stayed here for one night. However the hotel and area were nice enough we wished we would have stayed another night. The Inn was clean, quiet and inexpensive. The hotel is a little bit older, but very well maintained. It is right on the coast, although only about 6 rooms face the water.... More

The room was clean, and the front staff was friendly. I had a standard king size room. Unfortunately the put me in 104. Under the stairs next to the ice machine. Very noisy at 11pm of Friday night. There is air conditioning in the room, but it is not automatic, so it was either too cold (if on) or too... More

Thanks for your review; 104 is near the ice machine unfortunately but I am afraid that is unavoidable. There is an auto setting on the air conditioning; it actually is very quiet and efficient. More

It was a very cold 15' wet and windy afternoon when we checked in - not normal mid July weather. After just finishing a 9 day kayaking trip a few hours earlier we needed a hot shower and a good meal. We got both. Friendly check in, room was comfortable, and the restaurant attached without having to go outside in... More

Stayed in the family suite with sea view for our girl’s spa weekend. Room was a nice size, the kitchenette was stocked and more than functional, the beds were comfortable and the sea view wonderful. Front desk staff were super friendly. I would stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights and chose an oceanfront room as we have 2 young kids (ages 2 & 4) and wanted a separated bedroom so we could put the kids to bed easily. The setup worked out great as the bedroom had a small window and curtain which made the room quite dim by 8pm. We were able... More

Clean rooms, however the decor, and finish is quite dated, A/C unit was noisy, the linens appeared quite old and worn, and it's probably time for new mattresses. The counter-tops in the bathroom are showing their age as is the carpet in the rooms. The prices are reasonable, but with what they charge it should allow for some updating.

The rooms are super spacious and extremely clean. The restaurant has amazing food and drinks with a view to die for. It is dog friendly and very accommodating. Walking distance to all amenities, and the view from the ocean front rooms is incredible. Would stay there every time we visit the sunshine coast.

Good place, great location, great people, great view. You will be comfortable here...and close to everything Sechelt has to offer...including great food - right on site! Then, head down to the beach for a stroll! Good times!
