Only stayed one night here because we were traveling through. The price was reasonable.
It is a little older but it was a clean and pleasant experience. The owner was very pleasant and I want to thank him for letting me clean my Goldwing while I was there. I would recommend this motel to others. It definitely is not fancy but it was a pleasant stay.

This is an older motel. It was clean and in reasonable condition although the bathtub badly needs re-caulking and the kitchen flooring needs replacing. The soap was so small it was unusable, so be prepared to bring your own soap. Not the most comfortable stay but by no means the worst. The location is on the main road through Powell River and not far from the ferry terminal. It is fine if you are just passing through but not a multiple day destination.

We stayed there for 3 nights in off season. I believe there were only 2 other rooms occupied during our stay. The room was clean. Furniture was a bit out dated. Kitchen facilities were adequate and in good working order. When we went to pay our bill the night prior to our departure we were advised that their credit card payment computer equipment crashed due to a storm in the area the day prior to our check-in. So we had to find a ATM to get enough cash to settle our bill. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.
I think we would stay there again if the rates stay reasonable.

This was one of the worst places I have stayed. It was dirty, the bed was terrible. Everything was unplugged as if they did not want you watching the TV to save on electrical. The fridge did not even work and despite it being warm inside with no signs of life, the owner claims it was working that morning?
I understand trying to make up for your losses during covid but this place is not worth even close to what they charge.
I would have been more comfortable sleeping in my car

Not bad at all—nice grounds and view of the water, full kitchen with big fridge, and wisely they updated the bathroom prior to other needed renovations. This is an old motel, and if it were in Palm Springs they would add more kitsch and charge a lot more. This was a one-night backup option for us, but fine overall.

On a motorcycle trip with a couple of friends when we stayed here for one night ( June 26, 2021). This is an older Motel but very clean, excellent t.v., shower, kitchen facilities (I didn't require) and a nice ground floor unit. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. The grounds were clean and had a nice picnic table to eat our evening pizza with a cocktail while taking in the view of the ocean. It's not the Hilton but good value for your dollar. I had a great night sleep as this area is just five minutes south of town with no traffic noise. Cleanliness and a good bed are important to me and I got both at this motel.

After a long day travelling to get to Powell River, my two daughters and I just really needed to have a nap. We were also excited to barbecue dinner that night - and chose this place partly because of the advertised grills and the lovely view.

The very hot room had no fan or air conditioning, and it smelled horribly. The water was brown, everything was old and had not been updated at all. To top it all off, the 1 barbecue on site was in a different area, and the manager told me how he had almost burnt himself trying to light it the previous week.

After trying to have quick nap, it was impossible to consider staying here. The manager refused to refund us. The worst experience ever.

We stayed 2 nights in Room 25 and were very happy with it while out tripping about. Clean towels the 2nd day and bed made up. Typical motel room mattress but not saggy. Owner friendly. Lovely view and very QUIET :-)

After a 7 hour day of riding in 30 degree temperatures we were very glad to finally be pulling up to our motel. We were greeted by an older lady, she was very nice and she proceeded to check us in. I used my visa and once the transaction said "approved" on the screen I handed the machine back to the lady, the receipt came out blank and this is where the confusion began. This nice lady needed to attach a printed receipt from that machine to a document from the computer for filing, the fact that the receipt didn't print basically shut down the entire process and she wanted to run it through my visa again. I said "no" and explained that if it didn't go through over the next couple days she could run my number through manually as I had used the number to book my room. That wasn't acceptable and she proceeded to ask for a cash payment... At this point I asked if I could just have a key to the room, her reply was "I don't know what to do" she said this 3 or more times while staring into the computer screen. I then pleaded "can I please have a room key so I can relax while you work this out, you have my credit card number and the transaction also said clearly that it was approved, you're going to have to trust me". She finally gave me a key and I proceeded to my room. The room had 2 very large spiders waiting to greet us and once we had them dealt with we sat on the beds that nearly sagged to the floor (extremely uncomfortable). We decided we would go out to grab some food and on our way out we were stopped by the lady who told me that she was unable to solve the issue. I explained that I would consider paying cash when I returned from dinner. When we got back I stopped at the office again, I was holding the cash in my hand and stood there waiting and listening as she talked on the phone for 5 mins about how to solve this issue. I'm not sure who she was talking to but I wasn't about to spent another minute waiting in that office as my vacation and rest time was being wasted so I walked out, the lady then decided to chase me down explaining that the transaction never went through. At this point I was fairly upset with the whole process and said "if you don't see the transaction go through in the next couple days then you can put it through manually using my visa number although I seen it say approved when I did the transaction" she agreed. At about 11:00 pm I got a knock on the door she came in and presented a piece of paper for me to sign, she said that she put it through manually as she had found that it didn't go through. I signed the paper, reluctantly, knowing that I would now have to keep an eye out for double billing on my visa statement. Sure enough this morning I found that the room had been double billed. I called the office, the manager explained that he was aware of my situation and that I would see a credit in 3 days to a week... what a hassle for an uncomfortable bed in a spider filled room...

My daughter, grandson and I had booked online for 3 nights. We were told that there was a play area where soccer could be played.
When we arrived it was evident that there was no play area. The owner said he could play in the parking area only.
The room was filthy dirty. The shower stall was dirty with black mould in crevices, loose hairs on the shower floor, as well as so much built up dirt on the shower floor you could see footprints.
The kitchen had dishes and a sign that said they had to washed and put away when you left. They were gross! There was old food caked on some and grease on others.
The headboards had to wiped down with a damp cloth before bedtime.
Across the parking lot (20'), from our unit was a picnic table. I picked up a dozen rusty nails and screws walking over to the table. There was broken glass littering our parking spot and other areas of the same area. This was the 'designated' play area for my grandson.
When I told the owner we would only stay the one night and gave him the handful of nails/screws and told him about the glass, he said someone had been rebuilding the picnic table and that he'd clean up the glass. This was at 3:15 pm. The next morning the glass was still strewn all over the parking area.
Lastly, at 9:30pm he knocked on the door wanting to be paid. We were obviously down for the night as there were no lights on inside our unit. He woke my grandson and disturbed my daughter and I.
The rest of our visit to Powell River was great! We stayed in the Island View Motel which cost only $10 more AND included a great breakfast.
