Ocean Crest Motel
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Qualicum Beach
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This small motel had a great location and the owner was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were your basic style motel rooms. The place was clean and quite had everything you need. We would stay here again.

The only reason I stayed at the Ocean Crest was because I couldn't get a room at the two nearby hotels on the waterside. Ocean Crest is a low-budget place, only not a low-budget price -- $97.75 for a single person for one night, after season. Everything in the room looked about 10 years old. For $100, the room didn't have any of those little shampoos, which was a bummer for me because I was traveling light on a bike trip. The Korean (?) owner was oddly solicitous and watchful -- maybe because I was the only guest. And it was a weekend. I can see why it's not the first choice.

Room Tip: Make a reservation at one of the places across the street.

Arrived late at night after a long drive and found this place. No barganing about the 99 dollar unfortunately, but the price/quality was definately ok. Friendly folks and the rooms and locations are very good. Near a few restaurants and bars. All in all a pleasant short stay.

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed a relaxing time. We also enjoyed the sun on the chairs by the grass at the back of the motel. The room itself was spacious, comfortable and very clean. As others say its across from the beach but it's also close to places to eat and so we just walked to dinner and breakfast.

Never ever felt a bed or chairs that hard in my life. Bed is a mattress on top of a solid wooden box no give at all. Reclining chairs are the same. Pillows are hard as rocks too tired to sleep on top of three pillows and couldn't stay on them. Paid for two nights going to beg for second night refund. Slept in my car because I had to have some sleep. The room is clean and big, so is a park but the ground is softer in a park and its cheaper.

We stayed one night here while in town for a wedding. Room was quiet except for a little noise from the stairs in the morning. Right across the street from the beach. Host was very accommodating when we checked in late. Also we managed to leave a cell phone behind which was mailed back to us promptly. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This was a pleasant surprise, a stopover between from the Aurora Explorer Coastal trip and the Nanaimo ferry. Very clean, roomy, location across the street from the beach. Staff helpful, lots of room to park, and the air conditioning was reasonably quite at night. Nice grass area with tables to just sit and enjoy morning coffee.There are lots of motels/hotels along the waterfront strip, but I would definitely stay here again.
