Highly recommend the lodge as a place to stay during your visit to Alert Bay. Clean cozy room, choice of breakfast in the morning (as someone who is gluten free I really appreciated the oatmeal with fruit and nuts) and a thoughtful friendly host. The main room is a nice space to relax and read or visit. They also did a great job keeping everything Covid friendly. Great view of the ocean with the beach across the street, and walking distance from downtown.

We greatly enjoyed our two-night stay at the Lodge, it was quiet, cozy and comfortable. The host/owner was very friendly and welcoming, helped us with our questions about activities in the area. Breakfast is included, and home-made by the host - a great perk! We had fresh eggs and bacon overlooking the ocean fog each morning. The main room is a fantastic space - lots of different seating areas (good for distancing!), book shelves, games, TV and fireplace. This space would be perfect for groups to book out, or for couples looking for a quiet retreat. We had the biggest room, which provided two large beds and a desk area, with a full deck including table and deck chairs (and morning sun!). Expect and embrace the older, more rustic feel of this place - it has all the comforts you need. It's close to town (~10 min walk), and right across the road from the ocean (we launched our kayaks there on the last day). A gem in Alert Bay!

Our family stayed at Alert Bay Lodge for three nights in late August and enjoyed a wonderful stay in a clean and comfortable room. Social distancing guidelines were in place. Scott provided us with a delicious breakfast each morning and was happy to have it ready when convenient for us (the coffee was great too!) The main room was a warm location to meet other guests, read a book by the fire and enjoy breakfast with a scenic view of the Bay. Thank you Scott!

The Alert Bay Lodge is within walking distance of the ferry terminal and downtown. It is rustic, cozy, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the huge deck attached to our room which looked out over the sea. Scott provides a choice of 4 breakfasts just as you like it which was really handy. Our five days were perfect to see the sights including the U'mista Cultural Center, hiking, whale watching with SeaSmoke , and relaxing on the deck or docks. I highly recommend the Alert Bay Lodge.

This lovely lodge is a real treat. Comfortable, friendly and very clean. It is situated on the ocean front in a sweet neighborhood. The breakfast was consistently delicious, and the atmosphere lead to interesting conversations with the other guests. There was great care taken with Covid precautions, which I appreciated. The host was helpful with suggestions and even went out of his way to help me retrieve my lost wallet. I would highly recommend this lodge. AND don't miss the Cultural Museum, it is amazing.
