“Casa Grande Motel, Qualicum Beach--Satisfactory Only”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

We stayed here for two nights in late Sept., 2013. The motel sits directly across the Island Highway from the beach, so it's handy for beachcombing or strolling. A paved path runs parallel to the beach for easy walking. Also directly across from the Casa Grande is an excellent pub/restaurant with some fine brews on tap and an extensive menu. The views from the top two floors of the motel are spectacular, but the rooms themselves have very small windows, thus restricting the view.

Turning to the room, I can offer only a mediocre review. Spacious enough, and the two Q-sze beds were very comfortable, as was the''menu' of pillow densities, but we had to reject the first room because of musty/smoky odour and the second room, though better, did not smell fresh. The room had no iron or ironing board and the small refrigerator, tho plugged in, was not turned on. This last bit of minor carelessness seemed to be the tone of the place.

The location and excellent beds made this a satisfactory place, but I doubt. we would return.

Quaint hotel, clean room with fridge and microwave, real cups and glasses (not cheap plastic), could hear kids from upstairs room footfalls on ceiling, musty smell in bathroom, noise from street from early morning til late night, overlooking beach but small windows so limited view, good location.

We stayed here on our family vacation. We had our dog with us they have pet friendly rooms. We had a very nice room 2 queen beds a small fridge and a coffee maker. Our room overlooked the ocean and islands. I was concerned that it was next to the road but that was not an issue at all. The beach is steps away as is a restaurant and pub. Great location and would stay there again.

What a wonderful surprise! We stayed here for one night as a stop over on a longer trip but would definitely return for a longer stay. The motel is very clean, comfortable, tranquil and quiet despite many guests staying there. The lady at the front desk (her family owns and built the place) was very helpful, accomodating and nice. The big bonus is the amazing ocean front view across the street. We could stay on our motel balcony for hours gazing at the large, expansive, rugged beach but preferred to get to the beach and walk along the water instead. We would definitely return. The hotel is also within a 5 minute drive to town where there are interesting stores, a theatre were we saw a wonderful play, and ate at Lefty's restaurant which we also highly recommend.

Room Tip: Definitely get an ocean view on the upper floor if possible. If not available, I still highly recomm...

Whilst travelling north on Vancouver Island we always stay at this motel. It is perfect. Right across the road from the beach. The views are superb. The rooms have always been immaculately clean , and all the staff are so friendly. Many good restaurants and take away food available in the area. I could go back in a heartbeat.

Outstanding sea views with eagles flying by. We didn't see whales but locals assured us the they can often be seen as can dolphins.

Our twin bedded room was a reasonable size clean and comfortable beds. We had asked if there was air conditioning as it was very hot when we were there. There was aportable air conditioning unit which worked but was so noisy that sleep was not easy. Over all nice but not exceptional

Room Tip: If it's hot don't stay

Very nice accommodations, pleasant staff. The view from each room is wonderful. The next morning when the tide was low we crossed over to walk on the beach. The rooms have a fridge, coffee maker and microwave so we sat on the deck with our breakfast and enjoyed the wonderful view.
