Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here before and after walking the Queen Charlotte Trail. The motel had everything we needed and the owners went out of their way to help us. Motel was clean, comfortable and just a short walk into town and all the facilities we. Would definitely use again.

We recommend this motel and will stay again. It is comfortable, clean, and economical with friendly helpful owners and staff. It is conveniently located within an easy drive to the ferry terminal and has parking adjacent to the unit. There are shops, cafes and restaurants nearby.

This reasonable accommodation is very clean and has good sized units. The studio units have cooking facilities and are well equipped. The two bedroom units have plenty of room for families and have a full oven as well as a microwave. While older units the decor is neutral. Location was good as close to town centre and the ferry.

What a surprise, don't be fooled by the age of this motel, built in the 1960s and still going strong. For comfort, cleanliness and a very warm welcome from the owners. We were pleasantly surprised. This is a full equipt motel with all cooking appliances and this came in very handy when we have gifted a Cray Fish from one of the locals. Comfort is the rule here with great bathroom and toilet facilities in the room
