“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

My Husband and I were looking for a clean, inexpensive place to stay for a couple of nights while visiting Powell River. On the ferry we googled places to stay and found Oceanside Resort. A little funky to get into but were thrilled with our Oceanview Cabin. The end of Oct. is off season and the rate was excellent, cabin was such a nice surprise and the staff was amazingly helpful. Everything you need was found in the little kitchen, fireplace was a wonderful touch, and beds were comfortable. Went for a bit of a walk along the Ocean in between rains. On the day we left the staff showed us the Ocean front Cabins and what a great place to take our families and grandchildren that is still affordable. Little covered decks, firepits in the sand, room for us all. We plan to go back... Little park for kids, pool, BBQ, close to town perfect for what we were looking for.
Thanks so much
Jack and Mo

Room Tip: If Ocean Fronts are available great little cabins, but the Ocean Views were just perfect for us.

What a beautiful location! A quiet, comfortable and affordable place to spend time with family and friends. The cabins have everything you need and some are right on the beach. Bring your kayak, canoe or walk out to the rock at low tide. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Thank-you for a wonderful stay and hosting us for a large family event. GW

Room Tip: Cabins on the beach are the best for the view and you can have a fire in the fire pit.

Never never never again. Was appauld the cleaning staff along with the lady living at the office sit around outside there drinking. My kids got a great education on how to carry on as an adult was so angry at the language that was used and the degrading comments being said that we cut our stay very short which was very upsetting as pur first impression we got was a very friendly family oriented buasiness. Well that was thrown out the window. At one point I even went to the office and asked to speak with the owners which I was informed were out of town so not sure if this kind of behaviour is tolerated by them but am pretty sure my message will not be given to them as the older lady that took it was outside drinking with the rest of the cleaning staff

Room Tip: As far away from the office

We had a wonderful time at this amazing location. The staff could not have been friendlier and we had a breathtaking view from our waterfront cabin. The cabin was stocked with everything we needed and my family of two adults, two young children and dog were very comfortable here. Our cabin had a kitchen and there was also a barbecue for us to use. The children liked the pool, games room and playground. It's in a great location for exploring other places too. Best bits: the views! the fire pit, welcoming staff, cosy cabin. It's not five star but the reasonable prices reflect that. We hope to return!

Room Tip: The views are spectacular from the waterfront cabins.

Fantastic value ! So much to see and do. Ocean at your feet to explore. Wildlife, the view is breathtaking. The playpark is great for the kids, gameroom, and pool. Nice it is pet friendly, just hope people dont ruin this great privilage, leash and scoop. The staff was all very friendly, and it was so great we didnt have to pack all our bedding and towels. Our cabin was eqipped fully. Oceanside campfires made this perfect. Over all, we give it 100 persent ! So peiceful and relaxing.

We have been visiting Powell River for the last ten year and often looking for a nice place to stay that will suit our family’s needs. Oceanside has many things for the kids to do including a clean heated pool, a nice newly painted park and grass area, as well as the ocean beach for the children to enjoy. But what I enjoyed the most was the location. This resort is only a five minute drive from town.
The resort is very family friendly and accommodating .We hosted an adult birthday party here as well, which had about thirty guests and the center grass area and outdoor kitchen/BBQ suited the get together perfectly. All guests were quite impressed and all children were occupied as well.
The cabins are small and close together, but they do include all kitchen basics and clean bedding and they also provide clean linens regularily. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Only a few cabins have an ocean view and fire pits.
All in all we were very impressed and hope to book again next year.

Room Tip: Ocean front cabins hav fire pits and have more space.

I stayed in the motel side for 3 nights and it certainly was a good value. The room had a kitchenette, AC, and a flat screen TV - not bad for $55. Its situated right on the coast and when the tide is out there is plenty of 'beach' to explore.

However, its not the cleanest place, and the staff seem to hang out and smoke in front of the motel rooms so you have to keep your door shut to get any privacy and to keep out the nasty cigarette smoke out.
