On the way to Campbell River, we stopped at this place to stay the night. We received a warm and receptive manager who gave us a good room rate without any prompting , and provided information on good local eateries and tourist sites.

We booked a cabin here and when we got there, it had been given away to someone else! No phone call was ever received. We were offered something else but because this goes against any good business practices we opted not to take it and found lovely accommodation just a couple of blocks down the street.

Booked online through Expedia. Couldn't find my reservation. Then once he does, charges an additional $10 for my boyfriend when the bookings price online didn't change regardless of the number of people. Also over charged me on the base right. Expedia said $90 tax in, charged $113 instead. Friends I went with that had their own room brought there dog... More

Stayed 7 nights. It was my third time staying here. Because I arrived unexpectedly early, I had a cabin for the first night. I then moved to a room, as was reserved. Each visit has been very pleasant and affordable. Always very clean. The property is older but well maintained.

Our room was a bit musty smelling, and the air conditioning unit was somewhat noisy, but overall everything was adequate. Wifi was fast and reliable. The owners were friendly, and the continental breakfast was ok.

Expectations----whether it is a hotel, restaurant, a concert----how we regard most any experience really comes down to what our expectations are and how well they are met. These thoughts come to mind because the Skylite motel is an older property that would fail to meet your expectations if you are looking for lodgings that are plush, nor would you be... More

I would never recommend staying here. Our family with a baby and young child were in town for a wedding and decided to try out what looked like a cute hotel with little cabins. Our room was super dusty and covered in spiders. In the tub, corners of the rooms, walls. It was disgusting. And when we showed them, they... More

We booked here for 5 nights while we viewing some real estate. This motel is old, we had stayed here many years ago. The price was good, $79 a night via booking.com. The room itself was old and and tired (as expected). It was clean and functional tho, and this was our desire. We had to ask for extra towels,... More

This was a good motel, with good beds and a spacious room. Great value! The staff was really great and it is also in a good location. Trail access for dog walking is super close. I thought the noise from the road would bother me, but I had a great sleep.

The new owner is fantastic. He's very polite and super helpful. For the price, with everything you need, you just can't beat it. It's a 2 minute drive from the beach and has a couple restaurants close by to eat. I will definitely come back.
