I found the staff at both check in and out very nice and had great customer service as well as some of the waitstaff in the restaurant. My son and I were there for breakfast and dinner. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Some hotels nowadays are almost too overdone and fancy that it makes you uncomfortable. Thank you again. I definitely hope to be back with my son.

The staff was great, rooms clean but it was falling apart. The elevator did not work. The cash machine was out of order. My door would not close from the hall. The access door to the stairs had a broken door handle. but the view and beach was awesome.

We recently stayed at the Quality Resort Bayside as part of our tour of Vancouver Island. From the minute we arrived, the staff was exceedingly polite, helpful, and friendly. The room was terrific with a comfortable bed, a lovely view of the bay, and an all-around great feel. The grounds were beautiful and well-maintained. The only negative of the whole experience was the shower. If someone in a nearby room showered at the same time, the water would either be intolerably hot or freezing. I'd definitely stay here again in the future.

The carpet could have used a really good vacuum as it was pretty dirty. Other than that it was pretty good. Yhe staff were pretty friendly though!

We found the rooms very clean, the beds are comfortable, new duvets and mattresses. The front desk service was ok, depending on the staff working. Overall, it was a very nice room, awesome view and great swimming pool and Jacuzzy tub that had no chlorine added to it. The breakfast that is included with the room is good, more than I expected. The restaurant view is very nice, service was very slow at times.

beautifully located with superb water view, would happily return

We stayed here for two nights. The staff were amazing! The hotel was clean and comfortable. Wonderful view from our balcony. Very comfy bed. Will be back for sure!

falling apart
