Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great hotel. I'm glad we stayed here, and we will definitely stay here again. The staff were super friendly. The free breakfast was great. The pool and hot tub are awesome. Our room was a standard 2 queen room. Beds were good, TV was nice. Nothing was lacking.

Our family of 3 stayed here 2 nights while in the area visiting family. The hotel seems newer and was super clean! Furniture looked to be very new and in perfect shape.

The room had a separate bedroom, bedding was very comfortable and blinds blacked out all the sunlight.

Kitchenette has a mini fridge, sink, microwave and Keurig coffee maker. There are a couple of mugs provided. Would have been nice to have a couple of bowls/plates and silverware but we made do without.

Pool area is lots of fun - our 7 year old loved the water slide. Breakfast provided is a great added value- good variety of foods to choose from. All staff we encountered on our visit were very pleasant, professional and helpful. Housekeeping came and cleaned during our stay and lined up my daughters stuffies on the bed after it was made which she loved!

Absolutely no complaints about this hotel - I would 10/10 recommend staying here while in the area, we hope to make it back in the next couple of years. Would love to see an electric charge stall or two added here (and other hotels for that matter!). Otherwise everything was awesome.

Had a great stay at the Bayview while up in the Courtenay are for snowboarding. When I checked in I was greeted by Owen at the front desk, he was one of the most friendly & enthusiastic front desk clerk's I've encountered anywhere.

I stayed in an Executive King Suite, it was very clean and comfortable, with nice furnishings.

In the morning the included breakfast buffet was quite good, plenty of options to choose from, and there was a staff member there constantly cleaning and monitoring COVID safety protocols

Was a great stay and will definitely be back

The hotel lobby is welcoming and bright. Staff is cheery and helpful.
The rooms are clean and comfortable.
There are good quality personal care products available in the shower in a reusable dispenser.
Do not stay for the complimentary breakfast. It is decent but not a reason in itself to stay.
The only vegan options are quick oatmeal with water and fruit - bananas and oranges.
Vegetarians can add muffins, yogurt (with gelatin), and pancakes.
No tea but there is juice and coffee with breakfast. Rooms have tea and coffee pods available.

Close to good walking trails and views from some rooms.

I stayed at the Bayview recently with my two kids for a tubing trip to nearby Mt Washington. I knew it would be a good stay when we were greeted warmly by Owen, at the front desk. He gave us the quiet room that we had requested and was generally very warm and welcoming. The room was clean, quiet and spacious. The location is great: close to shops and within a short drive of the highway (and the ski hill). We'll stay here again next time we head up to Courtenay!

We stayed for a couple of days at the Bayview Hotel in Courtenay, BC
Dec. 5th & 6th, 2023
Again
Feb.16th, 2024
We booked a two bedroom suite which we found to be very clean and very roomy! Actually, staying there was like home away from home!!
It was so clean!
I was especially impressed with the cleanliness of the bathroom, (sparkling clean actually).
We arrived in the evening and Gabe the Desk Clerk who booked us in was not only polite, he was very friendly and helpful.
My husband has Alzeihmer's and can't be left alone. Gabriel said he and all the staff would keep an open for him in case he got out of the room while I was sleeping. Needless to say I had a good sleep knowing they were on the look-out.,
When it came time to leave and I said our good-bye's to Gabriel it felt like i was saying goodbye to a relative we had been visiting, because he made our stay feel that comfortable.
I would highly recommend the Courtenay Bayview Hotel. They not only offer excellent service, but a full hot breakfast in the morning that we could either eat in their Cafeteria or take up to our room to eat.
Would I go again? As you can see by my Review the answer is Yes!

This hotel is centrally located, set back from the highway with a view of the Puntledge River and estuary. It has clean, good-sized rooms as well as a breakfast bar (pancake machine!) and small swimming pool with a waterslide. But what really sets it apart is the cheeriness and competence of the staff. Every member we encountered treated us like gold. Good job!!

This Family day long week end, we stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel was fully booked and I believe we got one of the last rooms. And because of that, one of the most expensive. Considering the condition of our room, it should not have been rented. At $264 per night, one would expect a pretty nice room. There were many problems.. I will do this in point form. *The room was not of a $264/night calibre. We stay in hotels a lot and I would think o basic room like this would go for $160 at best *The room was extremely dirty (See photos) Mostly in the bathroom, where there was either mold or blackish brown scale on the grout on the bottom 10 inches of the tub surround to around the rub to the floor. The furniture was stained and the arms of the furniture was thread-bare *There were signs everywhere with an excuse that the rooms would only be cleaned every other day due to Covid. You would think that because of covid, they would clean more.. not less.. It makes me wonder what the common facilities are like. We did not dare to venture there. *This room came with a small kitchenette. however there was no utensils at all. and we had to use our own plastic cutlery. *all shampoo and soap dispensers were empty *The bathroom fan was very loud and probably should have been replaced a long long time ago but at least it would drown out the noise of the toilet running all night long. Even the ventilation for the kitchenette area was very loud, so no respite there. In a nutshell, I will not stay at this hotel again, I think I would prefer any other accommodation.

Thinking of a reasonably-priced hotel that is family-friendly and clean? This is the place! An awesome waterslide that is separate from the warm swimming pool (no crashing into swimmers); the staff are warm and welcoming; the room was clean and had a microwave, fridge & coffeemaker; the breakfast room was BUSY with a very popular pancake machine. Free wifi that worked. We chose this location as it's close to restaurants, easy to get to Mt Washington and there's a wonderful, easy path behind the hotel called the Courtenay Riverway Heritage Park Trail, which leads you into the city or to a loop around the Airpark where small planes quietly land and take off from. Such a treat. Good value for money.

My husband and I went over to the island for a weekend getaway and we were pleasantly surprised by our spacious room with separate sitting area with the extra pullout couch. We were able to have our grandsons sleepover with us and enjoy the pool and hot tub too. The breakfast bar in the lobby was an added bonus that my grandsons enjoyed so much! A little mini adventure for them. The hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again and we would recommend it to our friends and family.

The restaurant within walking distance is actually rated #1 in town on this site - Locals at The Old House. They can give you directions at the front desk. I have to admit though - we didn't eat there. We ate at Bisque, which we loved, but we drove.
