Stayed at the motel because my flight arrived too late to take the ferry to Nanaimo. The motel is clean and has all the necessities. The staff was very friendly. Nearby are all the things you need like pub, restaurant, pharmacy etc. and the ferry is only a short walk away. Only negative is that it's quite expensive. But that's... More

Our stay here was a good one. Close to the ferry and everything that Horseshoe Bay has to offer. Plenty of parking and just a nice place to stay and visit. I'd stay here again. The motel management were very helpful and the rooms well maintained. If your planning on staying at this motel reserve way in advance. Always full.

Fast check in, everything you need is present. Small room, adequate facilities, free wifi. No breakfast, but small supermarket just 100m away. Not really cheap, but perfect for travelling. Bus stop to Vancouver 200m distance.

It was our first time visiting Horseshoe Bay. Nice little community. Easy check-in and check-out. Very clean motel; tasteful decor; vintage furnishings. Will definitely stay there again on our way to Nanaimo.

We stayed here because we had an early ferry to Nanaimo. It was very conveniently located, clean and comfortable. 2 mins walk from the coffee shop where we picked up breakfast, and 2 mins from places for dinner. Perfect.

Only needed this room to sleep. The lady I dealt with was extremely prompt with response time and friendly. When we arrived at 1030pm we noticed there was no air-conditioning. For how hot it gets in the lower mainland we were surprised and disappointed as it was still very warm out. There was a fan which we set up in... More

This is a no frills motel with very dated (aesthetically) furniture, but very clean and overall a nice place to stay, in no small part due to its nice location not far from the harbor front in Horseshoe Bay. When we had people in the room next door, we could clearly hear their goings on. The walls are thin. We... More

Location is what makes this a good choice. It's right in the centre of Horseshoe Bay within walking distance of a number of restaurants. The area itself is lovely overlooking Howe Sound. The motel is no more than average. Clean slightly old fashioned rooms, some with views of the lake. Free parking.
