Booked in at the last minute and glad we did. A little concerned when we were handed ear plugs at check in as apparently the sea lions enjoy visiting this time of year,but they really were no bother. The room was well equipped and very comfortable. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was fabulous. I wouldn't hesitate to...

This was my first stay in Cowichan Bay while on business. I was pleasantly surprised how nice the hotel was. The location is amazing with fantastic views of the marina and across the water to Maple Bay and Saltspring Island. The rooms are really suites with separate bedrooms and my colleague had a full kitchen as well. The decor is...

I'm so glad my client recommended I stay here. The views are amazing: a beautiful view of the bay and sunset upstairs in the restaurant and from your room. The staff welcome stands out: everyone is friendly, smiling and helpful. Dinner at the restaurant upstairs was delightful. I highly recommend you stay there when you're in Cowichan Bay.

The view from the room was stellar, the bed comfortable and it was quiet. However, it was one of the least appointed rooms I have ever stayed in. It has the ambiance and feel of a 1970s dorm room. There are no "luxuries" like art work on the wall, pillows on the couch, kettle in the kitchenette, or clock anywhere....

I have stayed at this hotel twice. The first time about 7 years ago was literally sketchy and this time, they have only tried to put lipstick on a pig. Some rooms have been renovated, to the bare minimum quality. We stayed in the high end two bedroom suite on the 5th floor and for the price, were very dissapointed....

Even though this hotel was a bit over what we had for a nightly budget, we decided to give it a try. We were greeted at the front desk by a very friendly young lady who told us she had one king room left, but it needed to still be cleaned. We decided to wait for the room in the...

I stay at this hotel frequently over the past 4 years- up to 2 weeks in a span. I love the friendly and helpful staff. This will always keep me coming back. The Reno have spruced up the rooms nicely but it's an 80s hotel... DO NOT expect AC - they don't have it and I have only really missed...

Stayed here on the recommendation of a local in Duncan. Arrived on a Monday checked in dispignt the price only to find out after that the restaurant and bar were closed in the hotel that night.

Spent a night at the oceanfront for a surprise birthday get away. What a wonderful place...the front desk staff was amazing, thank you Janis. Dinner at the oceanview was spectacular, our servers Erin and Daniel went above and beyond. The food was amazing, local wine from Cherry Point. We even brought our dessert back to our room to enjoy later....
