Overall the Inn was great! The room & furniture are older but the room was very clean. We did get a view of the ocean from our deck and we had easy access to the beach. They had a courtyard which was nice for the children to run around. There is no AC in the room and that particular weekend...

Other people's comments about the maintenance of this property maybe fail to take account of its location directly at the sea edge. In practice, it was soundly maintained. The proprietors were very helpful (although housekeeping was a little erratic). Our room was very comfortable and spacious with a well equipped kitchen and a superb ocean view.

If you like a small hotel, beside the sea with views of the mainland mountains across the Strait, and the ability to leave your room and be walking along a sandy beach at low tide then the Sand Pebbles Inn is for you. It's , to me, the old Qualicum Beach, not pretentious or over-priced . Great location in a...

The location is the best thing going for this motel. The new management (as of April) were a grumpy elderly couple who are definitely not concerned with any amount of customer service. A very "we don't care" attitude towards our family. We had four rooms...10 people in our party. After 10 years of staying here each summer...we were advised that...

It's a simple and oldish motel but the rooms are clean, the beds are perfect and the views are just incredible. You watch the sunset before going to bed and you wake up by the sound of the ocean. Very very nice, we were positively surprised! The only downside is that it is very close to the road, you hear...

This Motel Inn is very old outside but will surprise you inside. The rooms are very clean with good beds and provisions. The managers were only new but very helpful.

This was by far the best motel we have ever stayed in, the value for the money was unbelievably good, location was perfect and the owners very friendly and helpful. The room was large, clean, very comfortable and safe with a spectacular view of the ocean, in fact you could not get any closer to the beach as this motel...

As we do every year we spent our Anniversary at the Sand Pebbles Inn. Our room was great, nice and clean and tastefully decorated and the views of the ocean and beach nothing short of spectacular. Service here is warm and friendly. We would (and have) highly recommend this hotel to everyone traveling on Vancouver Island. G&K

My husband and I stayed at the sand pebbles while we were house hunting. We loved it..good location, friendly, clean and the beds were so comfortable ...important as I have a bad back.

As mentioned in most of the previous reviews, the Sand Pebbles location can't be beaten. A full 5/5. Unfortunately, we can't sleep or shower IN the location, we need a room for that and that is where this motel fades. A charitable 2/5 for the Sand Pebbles' rooms. While we were slightly amused by the gold toned, 70's era bathrooms,...
