Vancouver Island is 350 miles long and has many different areas for accommodation. The most popular tourist cities are Victoria, Tofino, Uclueet, Campbell River, Parksville/Qualicum and Port Hardy. While choosing where you want to stay, first decided what type of place you want? Resorts, motels, b&b’s or vacation rentals.
Resorts often have restaurants and spas on site. Motels often are places where you just want to lay your head for a night on the way to your final destination. B&B’s can be a lower coast alternative for singles or couples who are looking for a private property. Vacation Rentals are often the largest properties and can be condos or people’s homes that are rented out. If they are condos then you can often get a much larger place than a hotel for a lower cost. Houses provide private yards and often can provide all the amenities you would get at your own home.
Choosing the right accommodation can be one of the last things you do when deciding to come on a vacation. We would recommend choosing well in advance of your stay if coming during summer months. During winter months some accommodation providers do long term rentals and have limited availability. Accommodation closest to the ocean are going the have the least availability. It is good to look at weather maps to make sure you are getting what you expect on your holiday.
