The view is everything at this motel. Our room was nice enough, nothing fancy, with a small kitchen area, but the stand-out was the balcony facing the ocean and Quadra Island. Also, Peter the Manager was friendly and accommodating and the price was right.

I spent 2 weeks at the Above Tide Motel, the stay was very pleasant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was nice and close to anything I needed on top of having a beautiful view of the ocean from the room. I'd be happy to stay here anytime I end up in Campbell River be it for work...

After a long drive from Calgary, all my tension melted away when I shut the door behind me. I was not expecting the stunning view out my balcony window, the lighthouse across the water blinking hello, the high tide lapping away only feet below me. The owner, Peter Park, keeps his motel immaculate, all the while happily chatting with any...

I spent a weekend here while attending school and decided to extend my stay. The management was very friendly, the view is spectacular and the location is hard to beat. It is situated right between the harbour in town and the ocean walking/biking path. The rooms themselves are clean and have great amenities and WiFi. Absolutely would stay here again,...

Had the pleasure of staying at the Above Tide Motel while working in Campbell River over the weekend. The room had two separate bedrooms, kitchen alcove and large bathroom. A large sliding glass door opened onto the ocean, you felt as if you were right over the beach. We left it open overnight to hear the relaxing sound of waves...

We got into Campbell River late and chose the Above Tide Motel on a whim. The owner was extremely friendly and attentive. The motel is, as advertised, basic and economic - however, I bet you'll never find a budget motel with a view better than this one's! Our room had great big windows overlooking the water and Quadra island. We...

Stopped in for 2 nights, didn't want to leave! Clean and well run, this affordable motel has expensive-hotel views for budget-minded wallets. We saw a half dozen whales go past and it was breathtaking! The owner is a delight and bends over backwards to accommodate. We loved it here! Will definitely be back.

I stayed in the above tide for a week for work in town. Easy to find, close to all the amenities, and the price is right! Updated room was super clean and comfortable. Views from the huge sliding glass door and windows was fabulous. Feels like you're right above the ocean with an unmolested view of the beach and the...
