The management was super friendly and gladly provided more towels. The beds were like sleeping on a cloud they were so comfortable. Though the tub could have used some elbow grease, overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. The pub and marina, just a 5 minute walk away, offers great ambience, superb service and breathtaking views while enjoying... More

Awesome experience! Beautiful views...excellent way to start the WCT and the bus pick up and drop off is at the bottom of the driveway. Close to shopping, fishing, marina...just awesome! Beds were comfy and staff went out of his way and dropped us off at the trailhead of the WCT. Totally would recommend this to anyone wanting an adventure.

The room is a little expensive for what you get but considering the options there are not much choice. Looks and feel like a motel. Our room was clean. Walls are a little thin. It could use more lighting. It had free wifi, microwave.

Stayed here after touring Vancouver Island on motorcycle, with my daughter & friends. Rooms were not clean, only had towels for 1 person, shower did not drain, so you were standing in a pool. Wifi was intermittent, and couldn't find the front desk clerk. Office was empty & locked after 9pm. Nice setting, but that was the only thing nice... More

The motel is actually really cute and the lady at the desk was super friendly. However, the room was absolutely filthy. And I'm not picky... we had been camping and I still found it super filthy. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt in thinking they may have forgot to finish cleaning it because glass cleaner was left behind... More

Super nice guy running this place, but with the smell of mould ( that's what it smelled like to us anyway ), it was hard to get through the one night stay. If they completely renovated maybe give it a chance, but I'd recommend spending your hard earned dollars elsewhere. Simply put, we were relieved to sleep in our tent... More

The place was taken over by new management 5 days prior to our visit and all the rooms are being renovated this summer. Although things are a bit dated right now it was clean and comfortable and will stay there anytime we come for our fishing trips. Don the manager of the motel was awesome, he would always ask if...

We stayed here before our WCT hike. The room was very large and well equipped - fridge and microwave - and had a bath tub. We went down to the Port Renfrew Hotel to eat, which was also very good. I'd thoroughly recommend it!
