As other reviewers mentioned, this is a overpriced motel with a good location.Front office staff including Anita were super friendly.
Breakfast was cheap motel. Here is the kicker. They ONLY provide margarine! I have been around the world in hundreds of hotels, inns etc and butter was usually provided or offered.. Another guest mentioned that he too did not like margarine. So, I asked the lady at the front desk why butter was not available. Her answer (like I'm an idiot) was that they couldn't keep it cool...so how do you keep your yogurt, milk etc cool??? DAH!! Unlike the overpriced rooms, margarine is cheap! , I spoke to the owner/manager Dennis who was very nice. He said that he wouldn't eat margarine. So why is it that he won't eat margarine but it is expected that their guests should. The irony is that Vancouver Island is so health/organic/natural foods conscious...isn't butter natural?? I guess that the concept of changing the molecular structure of oil into a solid has not reached them.
The night before I checked out, I met another guest who said he was given butter with his in room breakfast ... gee I guess because he paid a lot more for his deluxe ocean view room that the management deemed it worthwhile to provide butter. .
This is really NOT a big deal, however, it speaks volumes for management.
Air conditioned inadequate and bathrooms small...
I won't stay here again...there are Bed & Breakfasts that charge far less...and butter is included with their beautiful breakfasts!!
