Very clean, comfortable motel style place. Situated on a hill overlooking the town and harbour. Walking distance to the water, ferry and stores. Friendly service from all employees. 4 barbecues available but stop in Campbell River or Courtenay to buy food because groceries are really expensive here. Our room had a small fridge, microwave, coffee, table and chairs. Exercise room... More

Stayed in a suite with full kitchen, well outfitted. Room was tastefully furnished, spacious and clean as could be. Separate bedroom was lovely. Quiet, clean and safe. Excellent accommodation at a price! Would love to stay here again and willingly pay the price for an exceptional local stay! Pt. McNeil is a small town but a hub for local outdoor... More

I stayed with my husband and my mother,our rooms were great they were clean, large and had what you needed and the breakfast had the basics that you would expect from a self serve continental breakfast. We would definitely recommend this place and will stay again when we visit Port McNeil.

This is a good hotel for the north island. Clean, quiet, well appointed. Your are not going to get anything better. The staff were friendly, and knowledgeable. Wifi was spotty, but it is all over the north island, and they do warn you about it. We decided to sleep in and have breakfast somewhere else. Nice to know there are... More

My wife and I stayed here durring the first week in July while in town to go fishing and site-seeing. We did not have with any prior knowledge or expectations of the hotel and were pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Coming from oil country in northern Alberta, we are used to much less for the same cost...or more. While the term... More

This site is very clean, well kept, good prices, the cabins are the best. I would not stay at any other locations in town as others are dumps. The cabins are great for two people, you are away from the main building.

As per previous comments, it is $155 per night for 2 adults and a teenager. The room is basic and is certainly not a resort. The pool and the gym were closed and we were not told at the time of reservation. Even if the pool was open, they have a policy that restricts access to adults only 19 years... More

This "resort" was just OK! We found it to be just like any other motel on the highway. The pool was closed and for adults only which if you don't like children might appeal to you but the price of 155.00 a night for a double queen basic room with no facility access and a TV that had no cable...

This very basic motel (definitely not a resort as stated in its name) was recommended by a friend who just relocated here but never stayed in this property. We stayed for 2 nights in a King bedroom suite although I preferred a King studio but couldn't get that since they did not accept an email booking which I had to... More

I agree with Joy B - although they do have a pool and a spa in a separate building, I wouldn't classify this as a resort. It is a motel. It is a clean, well maintained motel. Would recommend they put some shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom, but everything else was great. My room had a small fridge and a microwave... More
