A note from Lighthouse Motel
Updated 20-05-16


The Lighthouse Motel is the perfect location any time of year to escape from life's stresses and relax. Our property fronts directly on the ocean overlooking the Strait of Georgia, Hornby Island and the snow capped Coastal Mountain Range. Our hotel is located on the waterfront of peaceful Qualicum Bay, approximately 10 minutes north of Qualicum Beach. We offer affordable accommodation that is perfect for families, couples, or individuals looking for some rest and relaxation. We are a pet-friendly hotel, so you can bring along your furry family member! We are centrally located for day trips to the Parkville-Qualicum area for activities such as hiking, kayaking, skiing and snowboarding, golfing and fishing. For those who just want to enjoy the warm sea air, sit back on the expansive seawall and enjoy a good book or just take in the view, along with the eagles, kingfishers, herons and other wildlife we have the privilege of watching.

Motel, as another review wrote is, in some respects, ‘a blast from the past’, has real character, wonderful location. Management is clearly Covid aware, tech savy, organized — self-check in with a combination lock on the doors of units, place felt very clean. For me it was a real treat to be beside the ocean, hear waves in my bed thru a partially open window. Advise paying the little bit extra for unit 4, the unit is the closest to the ocean and I think significantly larger than most of the other units.

We were looking for a quick overnight stop on our way to Tofino from upisland and chose this motel. It’s a blast from the past for sure. It doesn’t look like much from the outside. Quaint and small. But our room was renovated not so long ago. While it was tiny (no space for luggage) it suited us well. The bed was comfy. The bathroom small but efficient. They even provided coffee and tea which was nice for an early morning departure. We were there when the weather was cold and rainy but i can imagine on a warm day, it would be lovely to sit out on the sea wall. It was great value for us and if ever in the area would certainly consider staying there again.

My family and I stayed here last week and we loved it!, Everything was clean and comfortable, we would have had a great view of the ocean but it was too smokey from the forest fires. Next time we come to the island we would love to stay here again!.

It was so clean and the view was excellent (#5). It had good lighting (personally hate dim rooms) and was at a lovely location with the ocean sea wall. Only complaint is that the room was small and not a good place for luggage. But clearly I coped and would stay there again. You can see the pride of ownership as the outside was well tended and the cups matched the outside paint (a delightful teal). I went walking along the beach in mornings and could grab takeout (food truck across the street) and eat outside at the sea wall in evenings. Would stay here again.

Our room was very clean and the view was stunning! We stayed for 3 days in #6. A perfect little fridge with a freezer. Coffee maker, kettle and a few dishes were also provided. The sea lions put on a show during the day and the managers supply firewood for a bonfire in the evening. We saw eagles and herons. Great restaurants within walking and driving distance! The managers were very helpful and lent us their toaster one morning!!! Our dog was welcomed to the property. Love it there and will return for an entire week next summer!
