“A very clean and well kept hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Nicely appointed rooms, but no air conditioning. I don't recall the temperature, but it was plenty warm outside and all they had was a fan in the room to blow air around. not very effective. It may not get too hot too often on the coast, but man!, when it does, air conditioning is a necessity - nut this hotel doesn't have it. A very nice view commanding the harbour from this hotel, so if you're going to spend any time in your room and want to see the sea, upgrade to a waterfront room. Breakfast was good, breakfast dining area was great. The only sketchy thing I found was there's a old bar/hotel and all night liquor store right across the way and there are some 'suspect' persons wandering around at all hours. Make sure your vehicle/belongings are well secure outside.

Clean but the rooms are very warm. Staff at the font desc not the friendliest or most helpful we have ever met. Close to rude! The gal at the continental breakfast should give them some training on how to smile and be engaging. She was a sweetheart and never flinched when a busload on senior seniors descended on her.

Room Tip: We had town view, i.e. the parking lot. Go for ocean view

Usually stay at the Crest but had heard about the new reno's and the price looked pretty good. Had a city view king newly renovated and it was very nice. The bathroom is a little small. The only thing that was uncomfortable was how hot and stuffy the room was. No a/c no air flow, one tiny window , it is 10 degrees hotter in the room than outside. There was a fan supplied and we bought a second fan to make sleeping bearable. It rained the second day and cooled off outside but not in our room! Would stay here again but not in summer unless they address the "oven like" issue with the rooms.

I stayed 2 nights here and had a very enjoyable stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was well maintained and clean in all areas. My room was clean and modern looking with a great view of the harbour. The bed was comfortable and there was free WiFi. Breakfast was continental but with enough food for me. I would stay here again.

Good clean newly renovated rooms. Staff are good, great views from harbor view rooms, city view rooms are a little disappointing but not horrible. Breakfast bar is average, parking a little tight if you have a larger vehicle. Overall a nice.

I normally would have given this hotel a 2 or 3, based on our room; however, the hotel is obviously in the process of updating their facilities. Unfortunately, our room had not been updated yet. My only complaint was that the carpet was "sticky"...not just one spot, but the entire room. Hopefully, the room is on the list for updates soon! We enjoyed the huge window overlooking the bay! The young lady in the front office is super friendly and helpful! The breakfast was nice and hot beverages are available in the lounge 24/7 (as well as free ipad stations)! We will be returning to this hotel in a few weeks while awaiting a ferry to Victoria!

Room Tip: Ask for an updated room!

The hotel seems recently renovated, clean and has friendly staff. I was able to get a king bed over looking the water and it was fabulous. The bathroom was spa like and the bed and linen were very comfortable. My only negative comments are that there were a few spots in the room where paint has been chipped off the wall,a very quick and easy fix by a maintenance person, and I wasn't too thrilled by the free breakfast as it was pretty much toast, coffee and some muffins. I would stay here again if I could get an ocean view, if I had to have a room facing the street I don't think it would be worth the money.
