Very pleasant modern motel style place. The rooms were large and were well furnished and had really nice en-suites. The included breakfast was fine , but somewhat basic. A good placxe to stay if you are in the area.

A really good place to stay in Port McNeill. Friendly and helpful staff, very clean rooms, good breakfast, store luggage for guests. We stayed here twice, before and after a kayak trip and it was great both times. Recommended.

Stayed between kayaking trips, rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff are helpful. Breakfast was help yourself buffet. Great views overlooking the bay, and easy to walk into town for dinner. It's a motel and not a hotel so a bit functional but perfect for our requirement

We came to Port McNeil for an overnight stay while we went Whale Watching. The rooms are very clean, spacious and the beds were comfortable. It was rainy and a little warm for my comfort but there was no air conditioning. The room had a fan and that served just fine. We stayed on the second floor and had a... More

The room was clean and beds comfortable. The free breakfast was great. We were allowed to keep our car in the parking lot for the 3 days that we were kayaking, and they kept our luggage securely stored while we were gone. I think the hotel works closely with the tour operators in town, as they also returned our dry... More

Large, newer rooms with all the necessary basics to spend time on the North Island. Took full advantage of the BBQ hut and the breakfast buffet. Pool and hot tub complete the package to anyone who needs to spend time in this neck of the woods.

We could walk everywhere from here and caught the ferry to Alert Bay. the rooms are comfortable and spacious with a small fridge. There... More

In this somewhat rural area it was nice to have a large, clean and well located room. Most of our activities were in the next town over but there is no traffic and this was an excellent choice. It purports to have a continental breakfast but with a waffle maker and hard boiled eggs I would say it borders on... More

We stayed one night before our sailing trip with Ocean Light II. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was good. They have waffle makers, fruit, yoghurt, hot coffee etc. They have an indoor pool and spa but we didn't use it. I would recommend if you need to crash a night before or after your trip to the area.

We stayed here two nights before a camping trip with Kingfisher Wilderness Adventures and then we stayed here two more nights when the camping trip was over. This is a very nice inn, clean and pretty spacious for a family of four. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning. I enjoyed the breakfast here actually way more than the one we... More
