We were in a large room that made it easy to accommodate our son as well as ourselves. The kitchenette is small and basic, but it allows you to fix your own breakfast. The wifi was free and reasonably fast. My wife used the pool our first morning there; she said it was nice but crowded with children. All in... More

Thanks for coming and taking the time to write a nice review. Glad you enjoyed it and found the room suited to your needs. In fact, the fitness centre onsite is the only gym and pool in the area and mainly caters to the locals, but guests may use the facility for free. The kids also learn to swim here... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights to explore the Pacific Rim National Park. We had a small room (11 square meter) with 2 beds and a bathroom. Although the room was small it fulfilled our needs. Also room price was reasonable compared to all the other hotels in the neighbourhood. The motel also has a laundry room so... More

We had one of the upstairs suites with a small balcony and view over the busy little harbour. It was very spacious with 2 big beds (so could sleep 4) and a separate kitchen.

I stayed here again on business this week, and was pleased once again. Walking in there appeared to be chaos at the registration desk, but that wasn't the case at all.

We stayed in the little green cabin on the harbour. At first glance this place looks nice but once inside it is very disappointing. It's tiny with barely enough room to move around with the foldout couch open. The laminate floors are cracked and broken, and the stove is chipped. The bathroom is so tiny you need to be a... More
