Can't say enough about this place. They have taken an old motel and fully renovated the rooms, with laminate flooring, comfy beds and little kitchenettes. ( never seen such well outfitted kitchens in a motel type situation ever!!) It still is a motel, but a great value and very clean. And the owners are extremely kind and friendly. We hope to return as our stay was cut short by illness.

Having no experience in booking a motel in the area, I relied on Tripadvisor for help and, as in the past, was not disappointed. I believe this is a family-run motel and they have a great deal of pride of ownership. The rooms and grounds are kept in a state of constant cleanliness and the plants around the grounds are absolutely beautiful. My room was spacious and exactly as described. There was a sink and microwave and enough dishes and cutlery to allow me have a snack as desired. There were various flavours of coffee for the machine. One tiny suggestion - perhaps a couple of regular black/orange pekoe tea bags in the room would be a nice touch. I was able to add an extra night to my stay, even though there were no vacancies nightly. The Black Bird Cafe is ilterally next door and is open for lunch/dinner. I recommend it highly especially if you love Schnitzel. About a city block across the street is a wee park where one can gain access to Qualicum Beach in order to watch the tides ebb and flow. Rocky, not sandy, but that was expected. I have and will recommend The Ocean Crest Motel to family and friends in the future. I am a mature woman and I was travelling on my own, but being driven about by a grown grand son as we visited other family on the island. Access to a vehicle is needed in the area, because of the distances and lack of viable public transit.

Stayed here for one night on the way from Nanaimo to Campbell River. This motel was spotlessly clean located across the road from a lovely beach. Great coffee in the room and great outside seating area. Very friendly family run property and we were made to feel most welcome

My friend and I stayed 2 nights at the Qualicum Beach Motel. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the location was across the street from the ocean. The Staff were very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay there again. Debbie Taylor

This motel offers clean, comfortable, quiet rooms at an ideal location across from the ocean. The rooms were as good as they looked in the pictures. We appreciated being able to use a small seating area outside. The motel is set back enough from the highway you don't hear traffic.

We stayed for one night mid February. The room was very clean but the first thing that came to mind was" the 80's are calling and want there decor back" The bedspreads were hideous and just replacing them would go a long way to update the place. We had a kitchenette which had the old fridge, stove and sink unit all in one. The fridge had an out of order sign and was replaced by a mini fridge in the room. There is a small ocean view if you go outside. If you are happy with very basic accommodation I would recommend the Ocean Crest but if you like a few luxuries it's not the place for you.

I'm not sure, i gave it a good rating because I thought it was fine, but my travel buddy had a different experience. I thought the beds were fine, she didn't like them at all. I got a hot shower in the evening with no issues, she had a cold shower as it wouldn't warm up at 530-6 am. What we agreed on: -it's clean -it's dated but we don't care -good location, close to some well reviewed restaurants, easy walking distance. -fridge worked -parking lot is very tight if you have a large vehicle but have a garanteed assigned spot for your room.

You like a quiet place to sleep and right across from the beach. This is ur place to go. But this place needs work it hasn’t changed since the 90’s u would think after 30 years this place would get a renovation as ever other hotel has. Still has wall paper u would see at my grandparents house, old lights with a pile of dust in them. Washroom has been changed out but they still use the same old toilet seat that’s faded and ceiling is peeling. The bathroom Sink all the cocking coming off. The outside sign on hotel looks like is styrofoam peeling off. Concrete big chunks off the steps. Needs new paint on the roof and siding that’s faded from the sun. The garden needs cleaning up and shrubs all trimmed. It’s all simple stuff that Would be cost effective. Places like this can make way more money if redone I know I would pay more. The check in and out is excellent. Took a few photos to show what I saw.
