9.2.Superb.
  • 4.0.Fair

    Clean & comfortable but vastly overpriced. We paid $260 a night (including taxes) for a room with no view (our choice last minute because all other motels were booked & we did not want to cart three suitcases, one large heavy cooler, and a box of stuff up three partial flights of stairs to our originally booked room, which turned out not to have a working freezer section in the bar-sized fridge). That booked room did not look like the picture on the website we booked through. The manager was accommodating given the circumstances and allowed us to move to another room as the guests had not yet signed in. In contrast, we paid $30 less a night (incl all taxes) for a well-located hotel in Victoria with a swimming pool, jetted tub, king size bed, queen size pull out bed, big screen tv, new kitchen cabinets with quartz countertop, etc. At the Buccaneer, the rooms with the view looked fine, but might be noisy given the location right on the #1 hwy. Given the price, I would not stay here again (given the price) unless there were no other options. If this motel had been $75 to $100 less a night, it would be a good option, and I would have rated it more highly.

    Visitor from North Vancouver

    For some reason this review was sent to me in Spanish, but I'm not fluent enough to comment in that language. Unlike many suites that claim to be fully equipped, this one really is! They've thought of everything. There was even a roll-top desk in the living area. Well laid-out with the bedroom at the back, far enough from the traffic that we could barely hear it. Clean suite; friendly check-in.

    Great overnight stay

    Very well maintained, updated, and ultra clean. Comfortable bed. Good to know ... no a/c but top floor room was pleasant enough with good airflow to keep cool on a summer night. Very close to ferry, a few pubs and nice restaurant. Good part of the city to stay in. Very courteous and well run place. Would highly recommend.

    This place and the staff are great. They have thought about everything. It’s not the fanciest place you’ll ever see but it’s a home away from home with a lovely view. The place includes a fridge, stove, microwave, iron, ironing board, couch and tv, little dining table, coffee maker and local coffee, creamer in the fridge, a guide to everything around town, and a very nice decor. If I was to ever give a 5 star based on value, this would be it. Big thanks to the hosts.
