We had the pleasure to stay in room 205, the Panoramic King room. Huge, beautiful room with kitchen, vaulted ceilings, spacious bathroom, cozy living room and very comfortable bed. The view from the room and wraparound deck was just unbelievable. We could have stayed there forever but only had 2 nights. We cooked dinner in the room the second night...

The Seine Boat Inn is a stay you will not soon forget. The hotel is on stilts out into the ocean, so the rooms run either side of the building, with beautiful views, but the best rooms are the ones that are at the back of the building, which look out right over the ocean. You are afforded your own...

We came to alert bay for this hotel and whale watching with seasmoke. It is absolutely worth it! Take a room facing the ocean. You will not regret the extra cost. It is like living on a boat. Very romantic and quiet.

Beautiful renovated Inn right on the water on Alert Bay. I stayed in one of the ocean view suites and had spectacular views over the water. Comfortable bed and a small kitchenette with all the basics for 2 people. The owner and manager are friendly and helpful. The owner even offered me a ride to the ferry with my heavy...

Truly welcoming lovely room with thoughtful appointments. More like a boutique hotel . Really friendly staff. Went out of their way to give visitors suggestions and directions. I just loved waking up to the morning mists and watching it burn away to beautiful sunshine. Eagles are perched on pylons at the dock when you arrive on Cormorant Island. We saw...

Brilliant place. Best room overlooking water and we were greeted this morning by a bald eagle sitting on veranda railing followed by river otters. This place is peaceful. Clean and beautiful. X Just make sure you get your food from local store by 18:00 as otherwise no shops open. Hotel is very central and it's great to explore the area....
