What happened is that somehow either I or the booking agent reserved our room for the wrong date. When we arrived there was no reservation waiting for us and we ended up paying much more for a...

Views are really great from the second floor- can hear the water below, this is not a high end accommodation but is priced right, clean, with a small kitchen. If it's hot (one month a year) You do need the fans and to sleep and the doors open - which we would have done regardless to hear the water and... More

This is a well maintained older motel with nice views. The room we had was downstairs and a bit small with a double bed.lt was clean with all items in working order. If you're looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Campbelll River then this is a good choice

I was in a ground floor unit. I faced Quadra Island with nothing to block my view. The room was no great shakes - a double and a single bed, the bathroom was clean, a window in the tub enclosure that opened to the outside at head height, and a double sliding glass door to access the room by.

Nothing fancy but we were very pleased with our room and the view was fantastic. We watched cruise ships going by and had spectacular views of ocean and mountains.

I booked two nights at this motel, one before taking the ferry to Cortes Island and another before going back to Vancouver.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful view. Clean, nicely renovated room. Nice little deck off the room to sit and enjoy the view. Helpful staff. Room was quite warm even though the weather was rainy. There were two floor fans to use. We would definitely stay here again.
