The advertised wifi in this place sucks completely. Only one bar when there are any bars at all, and often there is no wifi at all. The TV in my room did not work when I arrived, and I had to ask multiple times before someone came up to look at it. Even when someone said he would be up "in two minute" no one came. The table and chairs in the room are not suitable for computer use unless you want to strain your back, though it's doubtful you'll be using a computer anyway since the wifi sucks.The only good thing about this place is its location. It is conveniently on a public transit route and close walking distance to a shopping mall, Molly's Reach and the downtown waterfront. You can even take public transit to and from the ferry if you don't mind walking a block or two.

After a week in various BC hotels whose mattresses tended toward overly soft, we were delighted with the ones here, firm but not hard. But, everything else about this family-run property was top-notch as well. The gardens around the small pool were lovingly tended; the room was one of the largest, as was the bathroom; a kitchenette is included, which would be helpful for some travelers; and the continental breakfast was more than adequate.

Other pluses: TV screen larger than most, with ample selection of US and Canadian channels; double sink in bathroom; location right on 101, not far from the ferry; near several decent restaurants; an in-room fireplace (for winter use); and friendly staff. The pool towels are bigger and thicker than the bath towels in the room, so we used those for showering.

The pool is small, but quite deep at one end (3 meters, 10 feet), for no apparent reason. The shallow end is one meter, three feet. It was clean and refreshing after a day's drive.

Unfortunately, smoking is allowed on the patio. Our neighbor's ashtray had six butts in it.

Although this was just a one-night stopover on the way back from the Sunshine Coast, we wished the other places in which we had stayed were as nice.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms opening onto the pool patio (an ideal place to enjoy breakfast) are delightfu...

We just spent 4 days here and it a very pleasant surprise!! We were worried about the hot weather and no A/C but the fan was more than ample. It was great to have natural light in the big bathroom (double sinks) and a window that opened for a cross draft during the night too. There was a nice assortment of "good" food for the Continental breakfast and we had new beds in our room! Very nice staff and so clean too! We will be going back there for sure the next time we're in Gibsons

Sunshine has everything you need to have a restful and economical stay. The property is spotless, in summer, the pool is inviting, the unit has a kitchenette, and they offer a very nice continental breakfast. They surpassed my expectation, and my wife and I found our stay good value.

Stayed here with my 11 year old daughter for 6 nights. We both appreciated the quiet and cozy atmosphere. The place is well cared for and clean. Décor is a bit dated but well maintained. We loved that the pool was 5 steps from our door. Staff was helpful and friendly. The free breakfast was great. It would be nice to have some AC but it was never too hot to sleep. Rooms had kitchenettes plus a BBQ for anyone's use in the courtyard. Will stay there again on our next trip to Gibsons, BC.

Room Tip: Some rooms are poolside and some are not so specify what you prefer.

Stayed there on the last weekend. Very clean and a friendly atmosphere. We had a room in the back, it was very quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location, close to everything. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family. Great value for your money.
