Driftwood Motor Inn
It's a lovely location right by the seawall and close to the amenities of Sechelt. The rooms are good and I was surprised how quiet it was at night. The only issue I can see is that the only way to get there from the centre is across the main road where there's no traffic lights, so you have to rely on motorists stopping to let you across the crossing.

4/10 Fair

This property is in poor condition. The room was very bleak. The bathroom fan was missing. The front desk told us there was no maid service because of the pandemic and I know that is not true anymore. My husband is disabled and there was only one handicap parking spot and it was taken up the first night we were there by a guy in a huge truck who was clearly not disabled. The property is situated on a beautiful stretch of ocean. That is the only good thing about it. The food in the restaurant was ok. The staff were friendly. I would never stay there again. I was so happy to leave.
