This is a 50+ year old motel on the Old Island Highway 5 km (3 miles) south of the downtown area right across from the ocean/sea walk and a very popular coffee shop. The rooms are small and basic but our second floor room was clean, bed was comfortable and it has a small kitchen area with fridge and stove.... More

It was pouring down rain and we were driving along the sea walk. Saw this motel and called to see if we could check in early which we were able to do. The room was clean and comfortable. The lady who runs the motel was courteous and very friendly.

We stayed here for four nights in a two bedroom suite for four of us. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The decor is a little dated but clean and comfortable. The view across the way of the ocean was fantastic. The little kitchen was great for a few home cooked meals and... More

Best thing about Vista Del Mar, it was across the street from a great little coffee shack on the beach. Booked hotel with hotels.com for $69 a night. I get there and the rooms are $60 a night, but because I booked with hotels.com for $69 that's what I had to pay. Room was clean,great shower. but an old motel.

This place is ok. Not horrible. A bit dated....., but hey, I just needed a place to sleep while I was passing through. Nice to have a little kitchen. It's fair to say what others are saying. But really, in general, it's inexpensive, ocean and cool coffee shop across the street and the staff are really very nice. Easy check-in... More

This place looks alright on the outside - bargain motel. Inside decor is stuck in 70's. Cleanliness left a lot to be desired - but beds were clean and reasonably comfortable. Price was too high for what you got so value is not very good. The up side is you get a free breakfast at Ricky's restaurant - the downside... More

Represented as a 2-Star by Vista Del Mar. The good: 1. Clean 2. Good beds The bad: 1. The breakfast is several miles from the hotel 2. WIFI worked only sporadically 3. Furniture was worn with veneer chipping off. 4. No air conditioning 5. No screens in windows 6. I would only give Vista Del Mar a 1-STAR rating.

This was a favourite of mine for a number of years. It was inexpensive and all rooms have a kitchenette. It was bought out a couple of years ago by the owner of the Town Centre Inn. I usually stay for a month but last year I moved out after 1 week. They have been cutting back on staff and... More
