We always stay at the motel, when we travel to Parkville. We enjoy that the room is very clean, they have wire less internet access and a nice flat screen T.V. The bed is very comfortable, and the room has a combination heater and cooling unit. I can't say a bad thing about this place. I do like the fact... More

The Arbutus Grove Motel was the perfect place to stay on a recent road-trip with some friends - Excellent price, comfortable accommodations, and friendly staff. The Motel is an old building, which has been updated. Rooms are comfortable, decorated nicely, and have very comfortable beds. My room was spotless clean. There is a nice coffee shop across the street for... More

My husband and I, along with our small dog, made Arbutus Grove Motel our home away from home from mid August to mid November while our house was being repaired from an attic fire. What is really nice about this location is it is close to a lot of things but not in the middle of everything, so quiet is... More

Stayed 3 nights in Sept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a large room that was very clean with microwave, fridge, stove, coffee maker and large comfortable beds. The motel is conveniently located for site seeing in the area. Great value for the money and would definitely stay again.

We spent one night at the Arbutus Grove Motel in mid-October. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. We were just passing through, and were very comfortable there. Being able to park in front of the door was actually nice! We had to carry the bags only a few short steps to the door of our room. Our room had... More

This property is a one storey motel located on the highway south of Parksville proper. You will need to travel to town if you require groceries. There is a reasonably priced English-style restaurant which is open for dinner located across the street. The wireless works well. There is ample parking. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The owners/staff are pleasant.... More

A well maintained little motel on the outskirts of the parksville .....outskirts in that a drive is needed to get to any decent eateries. Rooms and exteriors are very well maintained. Bed was very comfortable but foam pillows were too bulky. The building is made of concrete block walls which didn't block the noise of the kiddies in the rooms... More
