I made reservations and had several communications confirming our visit over a month in advance. Yet two days before our scheduled arrival, while already in the middle of our road trip and a thousand miles from home, we were cancelled due to "overbooking". It's a shame that such a small place can't keep their records straight. When confronted, the innkeeper confirmed that we would have been charged the full rate if we had cancelled. He also recommended a different B&B that had availability but frankly it wasn't our style of place. He offered to put us up for one night at no charge a week later but when traveling over 3000 miles on a well planned road trip who can change plans so quickly without getting penalized by someone??? Very sad. But on the bright side we stayed farther south in Nanaimo and found it to be a much better location (and less expensive) anyway. So don't assume your reservation is guaranteed.
