Anco Inn
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in Courtenay
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We very much enjoyed staying at this well-located, clean and friendly motel during early October, 2013. On the Saturday morning, we inquired if a local fish shop selling smoked salmon was still in business -- two people in the front office assured us that it was, with obvious delight.
Later that afternoon, as we were resting in our motel room, the desk clerk knocked at our door and advised that if we wanted to buy smoked salmon, it would be best to go to "Portugese Joe's" asap, because they'd be closed on Sunday.
We raced to the store and bought the best smoked salmon on Vancouver Island. This wouldn't have been possible if the Anco Motel people hadn't cared enough to advise us of opening hours.
Just like being in a small town, where everyone helps each other out. Thanks!

Room was clean and had everything needed (bar fridge, coffee maker). We had a queen bed and single bed in a smoking room. Was great to be able to smoke in the room. Outdoor pool at the front, parking everywhere, laundry, etc. Would stay there again.

An awesome motel! We stayed during the Vancouver Island Music Festival for the rate and value it can't be beat!

The rooms were clean, I stayed in a double with a friend, Came fully equipped with TV and Fridge. Their Wifi was down at the time but it was easy enough to find an ethernet cable from the front desk.

The owners are extremely nice people and the onsite staff are friendly too! The pool was quite usable and great for hot days on the island.

Don't hesitate to stay here it's truly a gem :)

Room was standard so no air conditioning, only room left. At least it wasn't too hot of a day, but if it was at least there is a pool to cool off in. The room smelled faintly like old smoke. May have been a smoking room at one time, also there is ashtrays outside every room, so I'm sure smoke comes in the windows. Just plain & simple, also clean, but great bang for your buck.

Room Tip: Motel has standard & deluxe rooms so make sure to ask

Nice clean rooms, comfortable beds, very friendly staff, good location good wifi. Only issue was a smoker next door. Rooms are non smoking but since all rooms have outside access they put a chair and a sand bucket outside the door for smokers. We had to change rooms because of the cigarette smoke drawn in through the air conditioner!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, away from Cliff Avenue

For a low cost motel you can't beat the Anco. Nice pool, friendly staff, clean room even the people I met were friendly and nice. Able to park my motorcycle right outside my door. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for one that has air conditioning if traveling in the summer.

A group of friends reserved several rooms for a night or two and we were treated really well by the friendly and helpful staff.

We were upgraded to a newly renovated room with a full kitchen, for very little extra. Everything was clean, mostly brand new and comfortable, especially the bed.

You can not beat the Anco Motel for value in Courtenay

Room Tip: It appears the rooms at the back are quieter than those on the main road.
