Just stayed there Sept 1, 2013 Staff friendly and helpful, great room overlooking the ocean, clean and well kept, a little tired and could use some TLC for the price. Very short walk to a few eateries, fuel service close by.

Comfortable, clean, basic units with fantastic views. We enjoyed our stay here with extended family. Too bad the tide came in by late afternoon so there was no sandy beach in the evening...but sitting on the comfy deck chairs, enjoying wine and the lulling effect of the waves (or was it the wine?!) more than made up for the lack...

We stayed at the Sand Pebbles for three nights and loved the room. Had an upper corner room, with the most amazing view. i wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel. The rooms are getting a little tired, but still a lovely place to stay. Nothing a coat of paint or replacement carpet won't fix. The front office staff is extremely...

My husband and I stayed for one night on our way to Comox. The room was very clean and as spacious as a bachelor apartment. You could live quit comfortably in the room. It has a kitchenette that is well stocked. You can actually rent the rooms weekly and monthly in the off season. When the tide was out I...

My wife, 3-year old daughter and I enjoyed a 2-night stay at the Sand Pebbles Inn (motel) in July. We had a really good experience although I think that's mostly due to the amazing location above the beach (high tide literally hits the wall below the motel) and the constant perfect temperature of Qualicum Beach. As other reviewers have noted...

I stayed here the first time about 30 years ago. Loved it then and love it now. It hasn't been updated much, but the rooms are very clean, beds comfortable and the view is amazing. Every room has an ocean view. Prices are very reasonable. I would highly recommend this hotel for a romantic weekend for two or a family...

Recently spent a weekend at the Sand Pebbles Motel. The hotel we normally stay at is undergoing massive renovations so decided to stay at the Sand Pebbles. This is a large, sprawling,motel right on the beach at Qualicum. The structure is elderly, needing upgrading but is spotlessly clean. Stepping into the bathroom was like stepping back to the 60's. Avocado...

We had a great stay. We happened upon the Inn while driving along. Not to many places anywhere right on the beach to stay. We were delighted to find that they had a vacancy. We ended up staying an entire week. Because it was so busy we ended up having to move rooms twice so got to stay in three...
