It really did feel like being on a cruise ship only the balcony was much bigger and closer to the water. My daughter and I stayed one night but wished it could have been longer. The hotel is cozy, clean and felt very safe. The owner, Robin, is a very sweet lady and I bought one of her beautiful, hand quilted jackets which I will cherish. She sells an assortment of other handicrafts that she makes which are unique and beautiful. We stayed in room 208 which was lovely and would recommend everyone splurge a little for an ocean front room. Location of the hotel is close to everything you need. There is a pub and restaurant below but we were not affected by any noise. Very relaxing and will definitely stay there again if back in pretty Sointula.

On April 20, 2018 I arrived by ferry on Malcolm Island. I was booked into the Oceanfront hotel for 2 nights. When I arrived the owner of the hotel mentioned to me that my room faced First Street and not the ocean. She offered me an ocean-side room at a decent rate and I took her up on her offer. Before settling on a room she showed me 2 of the ocean-side rooms. The view of the water was spectacular. As the hotel is very close to the BC Ferries terminal, I would watch the arriving and departing ferries. The water activity is minimal and, therefore, the location is quiet and peaceful. The owner of the hotel was very helpful. She told me about the trails and how to get there. As my arrival in Sointula was prior to the busier tourist season, there were only limited places to eat. She contacted the Upper Crust Bakery in my presence to find out how long they would be open on April 20. The baker, Victor, was making pizzas that night. I later attended there and had an awesome homemade pizza. The hotel's proximity to the ferry terminal makes for easy access to the ferry. Having a car is a bonus, but not a necessity if you are looking for a very quiet, relaxing time. The ferry connects to Alert Bay for no additional charge and the places to see at Alert Bay are within walking distance. I was very impressed with the Oceanfront Hotel. The current owner has been there for 34 years and was a wealth of information. There are maps and brochures in the reception area. This is a place that I will return to without hesitation and would recommend it to others.
