This was a great stay. Not sure why there are negative reviews. Yes the property is older but the welcoming staff, quiet room, ocean view, comfortable bed and beach access more than made up for that. We will stay again. Great relaxing weekend get away from the city. Try to get a second floor room the view is better.

Was our anniversary, booked a special room for the occasion six weeks in advance, was told it was a for sure. When arrived was put in a room that was on the highway instead of the ocean room I requested. The room was noise and not that clean. Ruined our anniversary and stay, will definitely never go back.

One night only, location and rate was very good. Great view of the water, with balcony so you can enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the beach. Room dated, but spacious and well appointed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bed comfortable.

As mentioned the location and view are fabulous. You truly are as close to the waters edge as can be so the sounds, smells and sea creatures abound but.....I was disappointed to not get the room that I was promised and upcharged for. The rooms are large but really dated (70"s). Our room was on a slant from the entrance...

Pleasant enough accommodations, right on the ocean; a little dated but spacious, clean room and comfortable bed. Our neighbourhood was evacuated late one evening due to flooding, so emergency services sent my dogs and I to the Sand Pebbles Inn where we spent 2 nights with many other evacuees. It was a very stormy time so we were not able...

rooms are nice and clean, right in front of the ocean. You can see sea lions swim in the morning right beside the hotel and hear them in the night. Staffs are very nice as well. A very pleasant place to stay! Will definitely visit again.

Thank you for your review. We work hard to provide our guest with clean comfortable accommodations. Unfortunately we are unable to steam clean carpets during the peak season as we are sold out every night. Now that shoulder season has arrived we are able to take care of that.

We stayed at the Sand Pebbles (Qualicum beach) August 7, 8 and 9 - 2015. We enjoyed our suite which had panoramic scenery from our large front deck and lovely beach in front - felt as if we were in a boat on the water. The bed was the most comfortable and clean of any hotel we have stayed in....
