Reviewed August 27, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at the Big Rock Motel and found it was a gem in the rough. The room was spacious and clean. The rates are half the price (or less) than the hotels/motels right in Campbell River .. this little gem is about 5 or 10 minutes south. The location is perfect and the views are beautiful being directly across the road from the Discovery Passage. We saw the cruise ships, eagles, seals and loads of enthusiastic fishermen bringing in their prized salmon. It may not have all the bells n'whistles, but the owners are friendly & helpful and supply coffee in the office for when you wake up. No restaurant or pool but the value is perfect for the proximity to Campbell River & the Island Hwy.

Room Tip: They all face the Discover Passage but you get a better view from the second floor with it's ful...

I stayed one night in the Big Rock Motel. The stuff was friendly. The room and especially the bathroom were spacious and clean. The Motel is on the busy ocean drive route and there is a lot of traffic noise during the day. In the evening and during the night, the traffic calms down and it gets quiet.

We found this place to be very clean and extremely reasonably priced! Located across the old highway from a park and the ocean. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles...for a good sleep while you are on the road it's a good find.

Discovered this motel on the old Island Highway at the south end coming into Campbell River. Rates were great (in March at least) - they seemed to cater to the younger diving and water sport crowd. Facility is a bit rough around the edges - but that seems to give it character. The service was good and they let me in an hour early due to my busy travel schedule.

Room Tip: If you require the wireless internet you will need a room close to the Office.

I found this motel on-line when we were looking for something cheap and cheerful days before a big sailing holiday leaving from Port Hardy!

Being from Vancouver an it took us a while on a Friday afterwork just to get up to Campbell River but the woman i spoke to the day before (Christie i think) was so accommodating and helpful she said she would wait up for us to get there later than normal.

The room itself was quite "bare bones" and as they say you get what you pay for, but we were there to sleep and then go very early the next day, and the room was warm and quite and had a fridge, a bathroom and a lock on the front door, i was happy.

In the morning we i went to check out and i meet Christie's husband and there new kitten, very cute!

I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for something with no frills and just want to sleep and go with GREAT service!

Thanks guys!
