This is a reasonably priced hotel with a lovely location right across from the ocean. A very clean room with no frills, but comfortable. A good central location if you are doing anything in Campbell River.

We stayed there for 2 nights and appreciated the space, cleanliness and efficiency. The wifi, TV, heating and phone all worked. Note that seniors can save money by booking directly with motel, not through Expedia.

This hotel is situated right on island highway by the famous "big rock" across from big rock boat launch and nestled between big rock liquor store and huskey gas station. Most of the rooms have an ocean view as they own the land across the street so not to be obstructed. This is a budget motel but for $75 and...

took a chance based on reviews that this place would be okay. too close to the highway, quite loud, and no A/C on a hot day. bummer! the only bright spot is that at least we didn't pay much for it. free wifi was nice, and free phone calls to anywhere in north america. the counter guy was friendly enough,...

A very good motel with great view over the strait. Spacey clean room with comfortable queen size beds. Standard bathroom with noisy fan. Fridge, TV, microwave in room. Free wifi. No breakfast, but there is a nice cafe 300 m across the road called FoggDukker.

This motel, newly renovated, had almost everything any Hampton, La Qunita, or other hotel I've stayed in has. It was clean, neat, and the owners and workers were kind and considerate. For such high quality, its prices were exceedingly reasonable. It also is right across from the water, so you have a view! I was very pleased.

Lovely welcome from the owner/operator ... great location with upstairs balcony walk overlooking the inside passage toward Cape Mudge lighthouse. Nearby coffee bistro on beach just steps away. Convenient to gas station/convenience store as well. Bed was comfortable, room clean, quiet & restful. Good quality budget conscious hotel.

Parking was conviently right outside our room. The manager was very friendly,always helpful and available. The room was very spacious and had a water view of the straight. There were resident eagles right above the motel. The motel was right on a busy road but was quiet in the evening. The kitchenette was not very expensive and well stocked. This...

The place looked OK when we pulled in, but as we entered the room we where very surprised to see a very nicely decorated room with all new furniture, and all very clean. Owner is extremely hospitable, and seems very nice. Location is fairly quiet and has a view of the water. We plan to return for another visit soon....

“if it's a hot day, the rooms on the ground floor are cooler, but I assume all rooms are quite noisy.”
