The Lighthouse Motel is the perfect location any time of year to escape from life's stresses and relax. Our property fronts directly on the ocean overlooking the Strait of Georgia, Hornby Island and the snow capped Coastal Mountain Range.
Our hotel is located on the waterfront of peaceful Qualicum Bay, approximately 10 minutes north of Qualicum Beach. We offer affordable accommodation that is perfect for families, couples, or individuals looking for some rest and relaxation. We are a pet-friendly hotel and do allow dogs in the unit. This allows our guests to travel with their family dog.
We are centrally located for day trips to the Parkville-Qualicum area for activities such as hiking, kayaking, skiing and snowboarding, golfing, and fishing. For those who just want to enjoy the warm sea air, you can easily spend time sitting in a comfortabel Adirondack chair, on the expansive seawall enjoying a good book or taking in the view. Mother nature provides us with the entertainment of eagles, kingfishers, herons, sea otters and other wildlife we have the privilege of watching.
The large lawn area is the place to enjoy a game of croquet, badminton or bocce. We have picnic tables, lounge chairs and hammocks large enough for two! A propane Weber BBQ is available for guests' use and the seawall has an outside fire place overlooking the water for evening camp fires.
There is a pub, ice cream shop, and three restaurants within easy walking distance from the motel. A five minute drive north of the hotel will bring you to Bowser where there is a liquor store, grocery store, coffee shop and gift shop.
Only 2 hours from Victoria, 45 minutes from the Nanaimo Ferry Terminal, 25 minutes from Parksville, 12 minutes from Qualicum Beach, 45 minutes from Courteny/Comox, 1 hour from Campbell River and 2 hours from Tofino and Ucluelet - you donít have to go far to get away!
