one of the cheaper motels in town and very very clean and well maintained. Good location, near comox, mount washington and other central vancouver island locations. Great start to go further north. We would come here again.
In the US, a room like this on the outskirts of a small city (24,000) would be about $45. This was $60, very cheap for this area. The motel dates to the 1970's or 80's, but has been refurbished recently. Frame construction: if it were busy there would be room noise, but we had no immediate neighbours, Good-sized room, very clean, no odour at all. New towels and clean bedding. Good mattress. Lots of HOT water. Space heater warmed the room quickly. Summer might be a problem - no aircon that I could see, although there was a duct in the floor. WiFi worked. Very friendly clerk: we had no coffee for the machine and he RAN to the supply room and brought us a bag. No fan in bathroom: take a long shower and it would get pretty steamy. The tub had an odd feature: the drain is at the opposite end from the faucet, so lying with your back against the end would be very uncomfortable. They have suites with kitchens for $75: had we been staying for a few days we would have taken one.
We love Geocaching in Courtenay/Copmox and we like to stay at River Heights because it's clean, friendly, comfortable and they allow dogs for an extra $5.00 (more reasonable than most). I could have managed without the honking great mirror staring at me from the end of the bed, and there are no fans in the bathroom; apart from that we have no complaints.
My third time staying at this motel. The management has changed recently and their sevice has improved significantly. The rooms have also been renovated. The rooms were clean and smelled like new. We stay at this motel almost every winter season to ski on Mount Washington. It is great value! Their room rates are very reasonable, you really get your moneys worth. We will definitely go back to this motel again.
