Score from 10 reviews Wonderful
It's at the end of the water front strip, so can walk the whole town pretty quick. Quick drive to many attractions.
There's a new condo going in right next door so most rooms will have no view now
beautiful location very convenient for us. accommodating an early check in, thank you.
some of the other rooms had smells, one musty the other smoked fish. ours was fine.
location, view. patio
no microwave until we requested it, very small fridge, only 2 burners on stove worked, no screen on patio door, not most secure doors.
Clean mum and pop hotel. Had a great sleep. Lots of hot water. Love sitting on balcony watching sun go down
Close to shopping and the park.
Units are getting old and tired.
We stayed in one of the rooms on the front of motel which had sea views across the road. The kitchenette was very functional allowing for meals to be cooked in the room. It was also an ideal base to explore the surrounding area, being relatively quiet.
There was some road noise but the view made it worthwhile. There was also some noise from the building work going on next door. However, this would be temporary.
Nice location clean and good price

This is a great affordable place to stay. Staff are very friendly and accommodating .All rooms are ocean facing Just a short walk to restaurants and stores . I would stay here again
Construction right beside us making lots of noise early in the morning
View obstructed, room/bath hapazardly cleaned. Too expensive and not what was advertised online.
Decent towels and location.
Filthy, mould everywhere in bathroom, musty dank smell permeated the room, had to close bathroom door and run fan all night, the underside of the rubber bathroom sink stopper was full of mould. This place should not be allowed to stay open. It is time to tear it down. Took the bed spreads off the bed and the box the beds sit on looked ready to fall apart and was dirty. The beds were like sleeping on marshmallows--no support, we stayed 2 nights only because we couldn't find another hotel with rooms available....would never recommend anyone stay here. Too bad as the location is prime.
No Air conditioning or fan.
There is a big construction side next door probably since 6 month and they do not tell you about it with the booking. The noise starts at 7am. No fiew as posted. The rooms dirty and outdated. Linnens not clean. Internet is slow and not usabel. Air condition does not work. Reception doesn't care about your complaints and only insists on the prepaid booking.
Fronting the ocean and Hecate Park Close to the center of Cowichan Bay (Walking Distance) Clean Friendly
Busy days - good luck finding parking No A/C in Hot Summer Days, rely on cool winds at night if there are any
We hadn't expected to stay more than one night. The obliging lady on the front desk made sure we got the same room on the second night. Clean, quiet and comfortable room, especially the beds, and an ocean view. Not fancy, but we'll go back any time.
All rooms at the Wessex Inn have ocean views, and it is located right across the street from the waterfront and a small park. The Wessex Inn is a short walk to good restaurants, and a short drive into Duncan. The bathrooms are a bit dated, but clean. Every room has a patio/deck, making it feel a bit like home. I would definitely stay here again.
The microwave had not been cleaned.
The noise of construction next door
This was a terrific place, Manager was warm and friendly as were all the staff. Great Value for your money. An excellent location in one of the most beautiful places on Vancouver Isnad, no in British Columbia, No All of Canada.
The view The gentle stroll to the restaurants. The facilities to make own breakfasts/snacks
Had booked 2 rooms, but only 1 was reserved. Luckily there was a vacancy! Building site next door was very noisy. The wifi was very unpredictable
Very convenient location - right across the water and just a short walk to town.
Good black-out curtains made it easy to sleep. No traffic noise.
No microwave in the room. Saucepan and kettle for stove very dirty. Condo block under construction next door is an eyesore and very close to some rooms.
Nice location, easy walk to the waterfront and restaraunts. Friendly staff, clean room, nice view, good rate.
The rooms are a little dated but were very clean, good value for the money and a great location.
Right on the water, and close to shops and food. Makes for a great one-day getaway. Room was clean and had a nice beachy feel. Friendly front desk. Good value.
The minifridge in our room may have been broken; loud cracks in the middle of the night kept waking us up. Boyfriend had to fiddle with it. Right now, there is construction of condos going on next door, so that may be a hindrance to some.
