Thanks for the great review. Sorry to hear about your travel journal. I will be sure to educate the staff on proper procedures for returning items of value to our guests. Just a misunderstanding that we will rectify. Hope to see you again soon!

The title says it all-except for the great property around the motel. It's huge which is great for a couple travelling with a dog. The surcharge for the dog is only $10 per night. Also they are very firm on their smoking policy in rooms which is nice for non-smokers. Saw the owners only on check in and check out....

Stayed here with my family last week and had a nice stay. Standard clean hotel room. Good location and easy to access from main road. Good price for Vancouver Island. I would recommend this for anyone taking a road trip from Victoria to Tofino.

We had a 2-double-bed unit, without the kitchenette, for our family of four (two small kids). The beds were comfy enough. The unit was incredibly clean - possibly the cleanest motel room we've ever stayed at. The owner was very kind to our kids. Overall, it was a really good experience and I would consider staying there again. (And it...
