“Great rooms!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

We stayed at this hotel while in Sechelt for a family gathering. The room was very clean, the staff friendly. The restaurant is great! The only problem everyone in our group seemed to have problem keeping the room keys working. However, the front desk staff was very good about giving us new keys that worked!

Thank you for your kind comments. There is a bit of a trick to the keys!

The view from restraunt ocean side. I enjoyed my stay and will return again sometime. Location is one block from shopping mall. Sechelt is very nice . August features a huge car show, writer's convention etc. Excellent place to holiday.

This cute little motel has 2 rooms that we love. Two of their rooms are ground level and they face the seawalk and the beach. We love walking right out of our room into the beach. We enjoy the ocean view, the sound of the waves, people walking by and star gazing at night; it's fun. The restaurant is quite good. We enjoy long weekends, with the gorgeous view, visit the artisan market, swim at the community centre that is a block away, walk to the little stores in Wharf Street or drive 20 minutes to the Gibson landing.

Thank you. The ground floor waterfront rooms are very popular; wish we had more. We have also redone the decks on the upper waterfront rooms recently. They now also have new glass fronts with no railing to impede the view.

If you're interested in fine dining, ocean views, great service, and affordable pricing, look no further! The Driftwood Inn in Sechelt is the place to go!! Sleeping to the sound of the ocean lulled us right to sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean side room, and sleep to the sounds of the ocean waves lapping up against the shore!

Clean, staff was very nice and helpful, room could have used a little work in a couple minor areas. Restaurant was the highlight for me, fantastic prawn dinner and a nice water view while you eat. Breakfast was very good next morning as well! Came locally recommended and I would reccomend it.

Meh! Way too expensive for a dated car park motel on the main, busy highway, facing the shopping mall. Don't expect the website view from your dinghy and dated room. Heating loud and noisy, breakfast not included, bare minimum toiletries. Thankfully, the bed was clean, slept well, but I could have slept on a washing line I was so tired. Reception staff friendly and took $10 off the room price, but really, half the price would be about right.

We are glad to hear you had a good nights sleep. We are in the process of installing all new heating units in our hotel, which are all very quite running. One third of the hotel is complete so far. We are looking forward to being able to offer Air Conditioning with the new units in the hot months.

Nice clean room with amazing ocean views. We found the motel nice and quiet. Enjoyed the view from our balcony. The staff were friendly and accommodating. They even gave us coupons for a discount on our meals at their Pebbles restaurant. The only downside that we found with the room was that the minute you turned on the bathroom light, the fan immediately went on and it was rather noisy. Would have been nice if you could have turned on the bathroom fan when needed.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view, it is well worth it.

We were very glad you enjoyed your time with us. Unfortunately we are not able to put a separate switch for the light and fan. It is required to have the two together in the bathrooms. We are working on putting another light in the back of the rooms near the bathroom that can be dimmed when needed.
