The exterior of the hotel looked like one of those typical motels. If not for it's high rating on TripAdvisor , I would have given this a miss. But it's actually quite charming - comfy bed, good toiletries, some books m games , lots of...More

Twinklemelody we’re glad your trust in fellow TripAdvisor member’s reviews brought you to our little motel. We do try to keep the motel fresh and inviting with nautical colours and bright flowers, but sometimes the exterior does belie the interior and it's amenities. Glad you...More

We were arriving on on evening ferry and wanted somewhere near the ferry port to stay. The Buccanear Inn couldn't have been better. Easy to find, easy to park and a delight to look at with all its flowers. We had one room on the...More

Thanks David T for reviewing our Corner Studio. This well-priced, compact, well thought out room has it all in a snug space. Queen bed, ceiling fan, window that opens towards our side garden, desk, flat screen tv, strong WIFI, coffee / tea making facilities, microwave,...More

I booked the cozy studio for 3 nights, which was cozy indeed. It was spotless. I was concerned about no air conditioning and street noise which were not an issue. It is walking distance maybe 20 minutes to downtown, across the street from kayak rentals...More

That's great to read Kimmy1960. Our Cozy Studio is indeed cozy. 130 square foot. Small bathroom with a shower and not bathtub. Small kitchenette with a microwave, fridge, sink. Well priced. Spotlessly clean. Perfect for lots of folks. But it can be a bit warmer...More

Overnight stop, but was so convenient to ferry, restaurant, harbour etc. Roomy sitting area, clean bathroom, comfortable bed and helpful owner.We were able to visit a nearby diner for breakfast. Ample parking.
