We want to say first of all, the owner (woman) was a very nice lady. We checked in at the last minute deciding that part of our vacation we'd be serendipitous. Sometimes being serendipitous works out and sometimes it doesn't. We drove from Victoria up the coast sightseeing and as sunset neared we found ourselves in Cowichan looking for a place to stay. This wasn't worth the $85 per night plus tax. The pluses: again, the owner was very nice, the room was clean, there was a refrigerator, free wifi, sink, small stove, TV, nice view and the heating worked. Cons: Old place, bed wasn't too comfortable, old carpets (didn't want to walk around barefoot or even with just socks). The owner did take us an hour before they closed with no reservations. We stayed in 4 places while in Vancouver and Vancouver Island and the other three were such great deals and more than we expected. Walls are very thin, beds creak. We could hear the person next door every time they used the bathroom and got in and out of bed.
Note: We are pretty simple people as far as accommodations go. We really are looking for some place to shower, relax and sleep...we weren't looking for 5 star accommodations, but we do like to get our monies worth and two of our other rooms were only $50 each night and were in better shape than this place!
