Basic but Clean

Posted Sep 30, 2017
The hotel was fine because all I needed was a place to sleep. The bed was great. The hotel is old and basic, but it was clean

Close to were we needed to be

Posted Sep 15, 2017
Pros: The hotel has a social conscience. It looks after people from the John Howard Society
Cons: The place needs to be totally renovated
Location: The hotel is close to shopping, marinas and restaurants
There were some unsavoury looking people hanging around the entrance asking for spare change. We didn't like leaving the car in the parking lot provided, so moved it each night to a place were it would be visible to more people passing by.

Sketchy surroundings

Posted Aug 27, 2017
Pros: The room was a nice size and clean.
Cons: Parking security should be a 'must'.
This hotel is in transition from one name to another. We parked in the hotel 's fenced parking lot and had a pleasant night. In the morning, we noticed that someone had kicked our car (noticeable dent) and a screw was now inserted into the upper top part our tire. Though we did not see anyone do it, the car was fine the night before. It took an hour to have CAA come to the rescue. Beware of parking in this area.

Reasonably priced hotel close to beach.

Posted Aug 17, 2017
Pros: Its location, cleanliness, quiet, bed
Cons: Add a clock to the room.
Location: Really close to the Quadra ferry. Downtown very close. I didn't do anything in town since I was visiting a friend.
My room had a view of the water. The beds are excellent, quiet; room was spotless. I had long, uninterrupted sleeps. I will be staying there again. It is close to everything, beach and downtown.

all you can smell is cigarette smoke

Posted Aug 17, 2017
Pros: the beds
The beds are comfortable, every after 11am you need to get your room key reactivated
