rooms are clean, staff is friendly what else does one need for a great place to stay. A small, well run motel in which I have stayed before .The rooms are clean and have a small kitchenette. The owners are friendly and the staff are helpful. if I stay healthy enough it will be the destination for my next trip.

If you have the opportunity to visit Qualicum Beach, please take some time to explore alternative accomodations as this Motel is across the highway and not beachfront...with no partial view from ground floor at all.

A small motel, very well run and super-clean, located on the old Island Highway. We have stayed at this place before and have returned because it is so clean and conveniently located. Ask for a room near the rear of the property and you won't even hear the traffic on the old coastal highway. Take a stroll on the nearby...

It could have been better if the kitchenette has a separation from the bedroom. But with the price, it was okay. Though are other accommodations across the road in the beach front or the ones close to the gas station and seaside walk

Good value for the money. Across the street from the beach with access to same. Several restaurants and a convenience store within a short walk and only...

Our room was reasonable, clean, warm and comfortable. This basic room had a refrigerator, coffee maker, TV etc. Kitchenettes are available but for a couple of days we made do with snacks and ready made food from the Qualicum Quality Foods that we could store in the fridge and on top of the chest of drawers for the dry goods....

Ocean Crest motel was very nice, both clean and quiet, and priced better than rent for the month I stayed! The host - gracious, and he always gave me a smile and a wave. Lots of hot water for a shower, wifi never cut out, well-stocked kitchenette. I'd recommend Ocean Crest for long-term accommodation.

Very nice and helpful owners with a well maintained and more then adequate accommodations. This was great value for the money and would recommend to anyone staying in the area. There were also some good restaurants close by, and the beach/shore is right across the road to walk over to. Great experience overall!
