Great little inn on the ocean. We had second floor, east ocean facing room. The view in morning was fantastic and the stars off the balcony at night was wonderful. Rooms very large and clean. I could not believe how lucky we got to have this room at the price that was offered.

Thanks very much for your kind words. Our staff work very hard to keep the rooms clean and we were only too happy to upgrade you so that you could better enjoy the clear night. We have in such a unique place on Vancouver Island; what other beach-front property allows you see the sun rise AND set from your balcony?!...

Great rate and you can't beat the view. Older hotel but clean and great beds and pillows. A little attention to basic maintenance is needed. Ex thermostat control hanging wrong on way. Loose handrails. Owner very helpful and accommodating to requests for more coffee etc.

We stayed in queen room right at the water. This motel/inn is basic accommodation. If you are looking for upscale or luxury, this is not the place for you. It is an older facility but clean with friendly, accomodating staff. The rooms could use an update, but that was fine with us. We were after an oceanfront, beach location so...

A great place to stay. We were in Qualicum for a day with family. Booked into the Sand Pebbles Inn and found a very nice, spacious room with a kitchenette, sitting area and a great view of the ocean. There was a huge storm blowing and it was quite the sight to see the waves crashing into the break water....

Our feelings over this place are so mixed. On the plus side, it is right by the water which is awesome, especially to be able to hear the waves gently lapping the shore. The caretaker and his family were so nice, such great people and so friendly and warm. On the flip side, the room and inn itself are very...

Positives: waterfront, good room size, friendly front counter staff, easy vehicle access, many room features like stove and fridge, good wifi. Negatives: horrible bed(sagging, hard as a rock - fine for the 1960's), right beside the highway so road noise, older building - thin walls. Change the mattress and I would rate this higher. Beds come first.

Impossible to get any closer to the water - at high tide the sea laps right up to the wall you have your feet up on. Each room has chairs on deck or patio, and a common grassy area with more chairs on the water's edge is a great place to chat with fellow travelers. Friendly and helpful owners. Furniture...

We stayed here for. 2 nights. The views are wonderful but the accommodation is very tired and dated. We had rooms with kitchenettes but there was a lack of crockery, utensils,, glasses and cups. Luckily between us we had 2 rooms so we're able to combine with each other to get a full set. The lady On reception was very...

My boyfriend and I went for 1 night in August 2016, for a quick get away. I had never stayed there before, and was so excited when I arrived. A small, quaint little place, right on the beach. Upon arriving, we were greeted by a lovely woman, she and her husband manage it. We were a little early. Asked if...

We only stayed one night on our way up to Courtenay for a family barbeque and I wanted something on the ocean so my daughter and I could walk the beach. Well, the ocean was right below our balcony! I thought it was kind of cute but my husband didn't like the fact that there was no air conditioning. It...
