This family run motel is clean and welcoming if a little dated in it's decor ~ and in need of more attentive maintenance ( replacing light bulbs, sink plugs etc). Reception staff are very helpful with suggestions for where to eat, and attractions to visit. Great location in the center of Horseshoe Bay, within easy walking distance to restaurants and...

Nice location to the ferry and to restaurants nearby. Unfortunately there was no soap orammenities in our room when we arrived. This was quickly taken care of by the office though. Comfortable beds made for a great night's sleep.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The Hotel is centrally located and is walking distance to restaurants in the village. The rooms were on the smaller side, but appear to have been recently updated. Nice bathroom and shower. There is no closet, but there is a large chest of drawers and area to hang clothes

I loved this unique motel. It's located just a stones throw from the ferry. The staff was friendly and very professional. It is just down the street from cute little shops , restaurants and even a small grocery store that came in very handy for those late night snacks. The rooms were cute, comfortable and very clean. There is no...

1. It's way too expensive. This motel is'nt worth the price. 2. There is noch a/c in the rooms. Not okay on a night at august. 3. The pillows are very uncomfortable. So finally it's a motel very near at the ferry station. But this is the only positive point. Unfortunately they don't offer any breakfast. So, no, won't visit...

When making my reservation, the staff member who answered the phone gave me great advice on the ferry. At the hotel, the staff member there told us all about things to do on Vancouver Island. She even printed us out directions. Because of her, we had a fantastic time in Coombs before heading to our destination. Thank you very much!...

This motor inn is exceedingly well run. The staff are friendly, helpful, and professional. Parking is convenient, and there are restaurants and a grocery nearby. The rooms are very clean and very comfortable. I look forward to staying here again.

This is a smaller motel close to the Gibsons and Nanaimo Ferries. Front desk staff very pleasant, rooms very small, mould around the shower caulking, beds hard as rock, but the motel overall for a old property is in fact well maintained and I commend ownership for maintaining quality control. The Price however is simply a rip off for what...

Nice rooms, quiet area and nice friendly people at the front desk. Wi-Fi is a bit sketchy, but other than that a good sleep and a quiet town. I would stay here again, this is my second time staying here.

This is the only motel/hotel in the community, and the night we arrived, after booking in advance, nearby hotels were charging $400 a night to people waiting to cross on the ferry or who came to see the Festival of Lights in Vancouver. This hotel honoured our reservation at $138. Our room was comfortable but basic. There was a microwave,...
