Spent one night at this motel. Was greeted by the very friendly manager, who gave me an upgrade. The room was small, but functional. It had kettle, coffee maker, and fridge. The bed was comfy and there were treats waiting for both myself and my dog! Nice personal touch. The only negative was that the floor was ice cold, but it was a rainy cold November night. There's a great restaurant just down the road. Looks like it would be a nice place to visit in the summer.

I almost don't want to submit this review, because I don't want the secret to get out!

This hotel looks so unassuming from the road, but it is L-shaped, built around a beautiful deck presenting such a peaceful view of the ocean. The vibe of the Lighthouse Motel is peace and tranquility. There are only a few rooms (maybe around 10?) and guests get to know each other, and feel comfortable leaving the door open to enjoy the breeze. There are Adirondack chairs set up to use, as well as a swing for two.
The price is very, very reasonable, and the location couldn't be more perfect. You'll need a car to get around as Qualicum Bay and Qualicum Beach are about 10-15 minutes apart. Be sure to check out Horne Lake caves, stare waaaay up at the huge trees at Cathedral Grove, or swim in Spider Lake (no spiders) while you're there!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean. Choose based on how many beds you need, whether you need a kitchenette, or how much space you want.

Excellent- small, clean , easy access , no fuss : ideal for our 2 nights , ok pricing ; very nice managers. Great for independent travellers who need accommodation and no frills. The place is on the ocean so winter may be different, but we had spectacular summer sunshine - that helps.

Easy access off old Highway#19, well-worn facility with friendly reception, "3A" a very small room but comfortable bed, WiFi, fridge & coffee maker, small bathroom/shower. Great view of Qualicum Bay and scents of the ocean, 200m walk to two good restaurants.

Room Tip: Small rooms, so suite is the best choice during bad weather.

Your comments and reviews are taken to heart at the Lighthouse Motel. We are currently upgrading the rooms and facilities in an effort to surpass our guest expectations. Our beautiful ocean front patio will be improved prior to the 2018 season to ensure all guests have a comfortable area to enjoy the sunsets and ocean views while staying warm in front of a campfire or cooking over a barbecue.

Thank you again for your review. We look forward to having you as a guest in the near future.

Great find on our route back south to Victoria ferry. Kind of motel we like the best...small, off the road, and homey. Clean as a whistle, nicely furnished, wifi, good TV. DVD player did not work and if I were owner I'd pitch the DVD players. TV more than adequate. We loved sitting outside watching cruise ships headed out.

We are very grateful for your kind words and positive review. All guest reviews are taken into consideration in an effort to improve our services and amenities. We apologize that the DVD player did not work during your stay. We have implemented new room inspections prior to guest arrival to ensure this does not and will not occur in the future. On you next visit to the Lighthouse Motel, I am sure you will be more than please with the upgrades taking place over the winter season. We invite you to enjoy the sunsets on our soon to be upgraded oceanfront patio.

Thank you again. We appreciate your feedback and support.
