I stayed here for 1 night in a large double room which was clean. Wi Fi was good and free. The Hotel staff were friendly and helpful with check in/out made simple. There was no traffic noise from the nearby main road. Breakfast was not up to what I expected with very little choice on offer. The property is about... More

We booked a double room during our recent stay. The two rooms had a connecting door and were lovely rooms. Beds were comfortable, clean and the price was right. Staff was very friendly and the morning breakfast was an added bonus. I would stay again

Rates were ok, mattresses could have been higher quality. Continental Breakfast consisted of stale muffins. Luckily we were in a hurry to get on our way. Reasonable in a location where prices can get very unreasonable. Clean.

On our annual trek to Tofino from Victoria, we like to stop over here. Clean, warm, welcoming staff. Very assuring and good value for price. Rooms are clean and continental breakfast is a bonus. Can walk to beach. Quiet!

This is a very clean, comfortable and reasonably priced motel with a very friendly staff. We were just travelling through and wanted a room for one night so we didn't want to pay the huge rates a lot of Parkville's hotels and resorts want. We were able to choose from a number of nearby restaurants for dinner and it was... More

My boyfriend and I booked a room here last minute on a long weekend for a surprisingly affordable price. We were greeted by a very friendly lady at the front desk when signing in. She walked us through the room price and answered all of our questions about the area and even upgraded us to a suite for free, we... More

I recently stayed at the Sandcastle Inn for two weeks when I was in Parksville on business. My entire stay was very comfortable and I felt welcomed every evening after work. The hotel is run by a sweet older couple who were quick to learn my name and made sure my stay was enjoyable. The rooms are clean and a... More

Honestly this motel is not luxury but very cozy and clean. A young lady welcomed us and good service was impressed. Comparing with other motels in Parksville this one is very clean. I strongly recommend stay here with comfort.

I needed a base in the Parksville area and decided to go cheap. The rooms are shabby and the breakfast is minimal. However, the room including the bathroom was clean and the muffins tasted fresh. The rooms beside the driveway may be noisier. So, depending on your standards, if money is in short supply, I'd recommend this place.

Once we arrived we were greeted by two very polite staff members and had a smooth and easy check in. The hotel was extremely clean and the were staff friendly and accommodating. The hotel is in close proximity of the falls and town. I would highly recommend and will be going back with family and friends.
