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.

Our family of four just spent 4 nights at the Qualicum Beach Inn and we loved everything about it. The staff were super friendly, they accommodated all our requests including extending our stay last minute. Their Covid protocols were great and we felt super safe and everything was squeaky clean. The hotel is recently remodelled so it looks great and is very comfortable. The beach across the street is one of the best in the area. All in all, a perfect spot!

As others have noted, there is a massive construction project (round-about) going in directly in front of the hotel. We have family that live nearby and they said that it has been going on for at least 2 years! The hotel really should put a disclaimer up when you are committing to book. Instead they email you and inform you of the issue after and say you can cancel if you want. At $300 + per night and taxes, they really ought to offer a 20% discount on your stay. As a guest, you are not able to experience the true beauty of the oceanfront and it’s hard to look past it.

On the positive side, the room was great. Spotless and modern. Very comfortable bed. Nice to have the added touch of a Nespresso machine for your morning coffee on the balcony. The restaurant is awesome. It’s expensive, but everything we had was great. The service at the restaurant was some of the best I’ve experienced.

We will return, but not until the stalled out construction is finished.

Responded 9 Aug 2021
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! The construction is scheduled for March - November of this year - it is not expected to go on for two years. Unfortunately due to being partially closed due to COVID for the past year, we are not able to offer discounts at this time. We are like most small businesses out there, trying to do our best now that our doors our open again. We are trying to go the extra step to make sure that our guests are fully aware of the construction. We send the notice out on our confirmations along with a follow up phone call or email to make sure everyone is aware and not surprised at check in when there is nothing we can do. We are happy that you did enjoy the room! Once the construction is over, you can come back and enjoy your Nespresso with a wide open, unobstructed view! Kind Regards, QBI

We enjoyed our stay for the most part due to the hotel's location as it was easy to walk to the beach and to drive to Parksville.

We sympathize with the hotel and the situation with the construction but can't say it was nice to have our morning coffee on the balcony at 07:00 with the sound of bulldozers and other loud machinery (email says the construction noise is from 08:00-17:30).

Overall, we found the room to be nice and comfortable and appreciated the small touches like the Nespresso machine and the Molton Brown toiletries. The bed was comfortable but a little soft for us as we prefer firmer beds. The balcony was average and lacked privacy; you felt like you were in the restaurant. The noise and restaurant were blocking any view that you may have, in addition to the construction zone.  

We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and outdoor space to lounge there. Having an indoor but outdoor concept with open door was nice for this time of the year. The gym is small and functional but quite stuffy since it is behind the pool area.

The hotel offers free parking onsite but there are not many spaces and the spaces they have are very narrow and often used by restaurant guests; you may need to park on the street. Parking on the street is not that inconvenient but still worth noting.

While we enjoyed some aspects of our stay and the hotel, it was hard to overlook the negatives based on the price we paid because we were traveling during a peak time.

I tried the chicken appetizer. unfortunately, I did not realize it is the same dish as I had a week ago at the QBI, Qualicum. The batter coated meat is mostly chicken skin, deep fried. For the price I would expect some quality protein. The service was excellent. Hostess was lovely.
Please work on the quality and presentation- a few wilted pieces of arugula under the chicken would have better left off the plate. By the way, QBI had a buttermilk chicken appetizer previously, which was much tastier than this present offering which does not match, in value, the setting and view.

We were looking at visiting family up island and wanted to add a night stay into the mix. The hotels where our family lives were very pricey. While looking around we found the Qualicum Beach Inn which was about 45mins away and was offering a really cheap rate. We figured why not we can stay on the beach instead of in a town!
We arrived around 5pm, and was greeted by an amazing fun loving team at the front desk! There were a few people all checking in at the same time, so there was a small line up that they got through in no time at all.
Our room was on the second floor, so we walked up stairs (I do not believe they had an elevator). It looks like this hotel was recently reno'ed. They did a fantastic job! We entered a very spacious room, with the most amazing set of window! We were looking over the parking lot but I could only image them if you were facing the ocean! Just stunning! The room had a large king bed, a big desk, tv and a sitting area! The bathroom was a typical hotel bathroom size. It also had a large clothes with really nice bath robes and a steamer. Everything was extremely clean and well taken care of. AC worked great!
The hotel has heated indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, gym it also offers a few different shuttle services from golf cart to escalade. We were not here long enough to use any of them. They also had an amazing restaurant. But we did have a chance to walk across the road and enjoy the amazing beach!
This place would make for a great mini vacation or weekend away.

My wife and I stayed twice in the winter of 2020-21; both times in a King ocean view room on the 2nd floor.

The hotel is called an “inn” but is essentially a modern boutique hotel just across the road from the ocean. Service from the bellman and front desk was excellent during both of our stays. Everyone we interacted with was friendly and professional.

Rooms are not fancy, but large and well-equipped. Everything is in great condition (in fact the hotel feels almost brand new), rooms are stocked with nice robes and plenty of towels/coffee, etc. Bed is comfortable and the ocean views from the 2nd floor room balconies are fantastic.

We used the pool twice (due to COVID we were the only ones allowed in) and it’s also very nice and clean, very well maintained. Would be great for kids.

We tried the new restaurant in our recent stay, and had a problem with our order... but thankfully the manager sorted out the situation and we left happy. Food and service were both good.

Excellent hotel, highly recommended.

Superb hotel. Beautifully appointed rooms, inviting restaurant with indoor and inside seating part of hotel, very obliging staff, immaculate landscaping, unique design provides rooms with panoramic balconies overlooking Strait of Georgia, building designed so that rooms are set sufficiently far from highway that traffic noise not an issue. Hotel includes attractive indoor pool.

It’s hard to write a review about this restaurant.. It looks good when you walk in, the view is amazing and you imagine soft lounge music and attentive staff but you soon realize this is a place struggling to find it’s real identity.. It wants to be high end but it’s just not sure.. it thinks if you overcharge then it’s high end… In the meantime you struggle through with a fork So small I thought it was a child’s. When I asked the waitress she said ‘well we’ve run out and we’re washing the big ones’!
We couldn’t trace down anyone to order wine until halfway through the meal.. Food was pretty good though overall.. The lemon tart was the star of the show! The biggest struggle (apart from the fork) was trying to speak over the overly loud and totally inappropriate music.. High end is not Benny and the jets followed by some heavy metal..
pull yourself together and decide.. Fine dining or not.. Thank goodness you have the view..

This is a beautiful hotel situated on property overlooking the ocean. The first room we were given was a little too noisy due to the air conditioning system so we were moved to another much quieter room. The view of the water was blocked by wires which was too bad. The construction site didn't bother us as it was after hours and once it is finished it won't be too bad as the round about should slow traffic without making them stop. The lobby area is lovely and the greeting we received from the front desk crew was very welcoming. They were all very helpful. Our room was beautiful and well appointed. Boy, do we love Nepresso machines - they make good coffee. Great high quality toiletries. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. Nice to be able to sit on the balcony but the view from our room wasn't the best - true its a water view but the price should be adjusted on an end room. We felt the room didn't reflect the price we paid. It was a little high. Fabulous restaurant in the lobby so you don't have to go far to eat!
