It's not The Ritz and it's also very affordable accommodations on the sea in a lovely setting. Stay oceanside if you are picky for just a little more. You can keep the window open for a wonderful ocean breeze because there is no AC. They have a gym, hydro therapy, tea and coffee and a little shoppe. Nice people run the place. Good sized rooms, beautiful grounds close to town that offers shopping and healthy food.

We stayed for one night. The view was beautiful. We walked along the beach. The room and the hotel were extremely clean. The bathroom was spotless. The price was very reasonable. No air conditioning during hot weather though meant the room was stuffy. The fan was a nice touch, but I would recommend that they get air conditioning. I would stay here again (on a less hot day).

It's our second experience at Ocean Resort, having been there some years ago. As before, we enjoyed the ocean view and the somewhat funky tone of the place. As others have noted, it can be noisy. We were in the west end on the ocean view side and had to keep our deck door open as there's no air conditioning (the ocean breeze suffices). There is considerable traffic noise under such circumstances.

The rooms are indeed minimalistic, but clean. The beds are comfortable but it should be noted that they're a bit on the short side for someone over 6 feet (me). We noticed that there had not been a lot of care given to maintaining the decks or the grounds in comparison to our last visit. There's a sense of a shortage of funds.

We liked being away from town - there's a grocery store a short drive away as well as a mediocre pizza place, and it's only about 15 minutes to restaurants in Campbell River. We'd stay here again, but would request a room on the east end if it were summer.

The photos make this look like a whole different hotel. It is very outdated and extremely small. They receptionists never answer the phone and they added additional charges to my credit card that were not authorized. I would not recommend.

Response from Travis G, General Manager at Ocean Resort

Thank you for your recent review. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your recent stay. Current hotel photos were taken in 2019. 1 small difference from what you booked is that we gave you a free upgrade to the ocean view rooms. So there was a slight difference in room set-up between the non view room you originally booked. Unfortunately, our desk agent was with a guest when you called but promptly returned your call after you left a message. The charge was discussed and we explained that no extra charge was on your card and that it was only the original authorization from check in that would be released back to you. This is standard procedure at most hotels and you said that you understood. Many guests comment on Ocean Resort's good value for price, serenity and quality of stay. Again we are sorry we did not meet your expectations will pass on your feedback to our team.

What was booked was not what we got when we arrived! My sister-in-law booked a room with a queen and a double bed. She called the day before we arrived to find out if the room had a fridge and was told we had been upgraded, which sounded good at the time. What we got on arrival was a double bed and a cot, with no bedding, the "suite" in general was lacking in furniture, had a TV sitting on the kitchen table, but only one chair in the room! It was ground floor, facing the ocean and did have a decent kitchenette. When we returned to the desk to indicate this was not what we had booked and was certainly not an upgrade, we were told one excuse after another and inconsistent information. The nice maintenance fellow did show up and helped us get in another room, which had a queen and murphy bed. The room was very small, there is also no elevator to the second floor and not even a coffee pot in the room. The real clincher, was our friends booked on expedia and paid $350 for the same two nights, they were on the second floor and faced the parking lot. Our original booking was done directly with the hotel, it was also on the second floor, but facing the ocean and we were charged $550! I would never stay here again, the only good thing I can say is that that it was clean.

We booked well ahead but weren't told we would be on the street side. Apparently they had a 3 week retreat booked. The street side is the main highway into Campbell River. That means that in the heat you cannot open a window without hearing the roar of vehicles all night. The aesthetic is monastic minimalist which seems to fit their current focus as a wellness retreat centre. Again, not what we were told or expecting. You need to get in a car to get breakfast which is a shame. It does have a nice view if you get to see it.

Very clean rooms and property, very quiet location (we had a second floor Oceanside room) very nice staff. The rooms are minimal. The beds comfortable and clean (bed frames a bit creaky - it is so quiet here that one notices.) Linens/towels/pillows were clean and fine. The Driftwood Chinese Buffet is the only thing reasonably close by so bring what you want or prepare to drive. The Driftwood was really surprisingly good, generous, inexpensive. We ordered from the menu but the buffet looked good and is very popular.

I absolutely loved this place. We had an ocean view room with a balcony. We overlooked the ocean and the outdoor fireplace. There was a swing overlooking the ocean that was perfect to sit and enjoy the views. They have taken covid precautions and we felt very safe. Can't wait to come back!

We visited Ocean Resort twice already this summer because of the hospitality, security and views! Travis and Cherry are fantastic management and always go above and beyond. If you are looking to travel on a budget, this is the spot to be, hands down. I cannot compare the costs and amenities of a chain resort because this isn't what Ocean Resort is known for. It's a quaint good nights rest for the outdoors people and adventure seekers! Come for the outdoor experience at your doorstep and stay for the safe and secure good nights rest. Travis and Cherry have done an excellent job of keeping the local riff-raff and trouble makers from abusing this resort as it's common for locals to take advantage of honest and hard working family run business everywhere you travel. If you don't have a credit card, don't expect to stay. No dirty money or shady guests accepted here! THANK YOU for being exceptional hosts.

What a beautiful resort on a walk out beach. There are seats and loungers provided to enjoy the beach and the view. There is a campfire that goes on in the evening.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. The toiletries are very nice with essential oil fragrances. There is also a mini fridge.
The rooms with a view also have your own private deck.
The property is perfectly manicured and well run. The staff was so helpful. The new owner has only been there for a few weeks and was very welcoming. Everything was run very smoothly.
Also!!! Great value for such a beautiful property.
