The motel had great parking, fridge, coffee maker.., the bed was comfortable, the fridge was cold. They gave us ice and helped us freeze out 4 litter jug filled with water for our cooler. Gave us extra bag of caffeinated coffe instead of a decaf. Just very helpful. Close to rathtrevor beach which is beautiful. It's fairly quiet despite being... More

Our family (parents with 3 kids) spent 4 nights in Arbutus Grove Motel, and level of services and care were unsurpassable, the best we ever met yet. The room is quite big, with mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, beds are very comfortable, bathroom new and spotless clean - the fixtures are shining! And it smell good.... But the most...

The first time we tried to stay here, they had not enough rooms available us and so they recommended another motel down the street. It was ok, but we reserved a place at the Arbutus Grove ahead of our return to Parksville to ensure we'd get a spot. We're so glad we did: our room was impeccably clean, the air... More

We arrived around midnight, having suffered through flight delays and traffic, and were exhausted. Ready for a good nights sleep, I went to check-in----and was told the motel had us scheduled for the previous night, for one night rather than two, and the motel was now completely booked. In most other circumstances, this mix-up would be the beginning of a... More

This motel has so much to offer guests, to name a few, good pricing, location, cleanliness, great customer service, and fairly quiet. My husband and I stayed here en route to Victoria to break up the road trip and visit with friends and relatives. We like the privacy of coming back to our own place at the end of busy... More

Stayed here a week ago because of the trip advisor reviews and the motel I usually stay at is getting a little too rundown. I wasn't disappointed. The room has obviously been recently renovated and was spotlessly clean. The motel was full when I stayed here but was still very quiet. This will be my new accommodation of choice whenever... More

Two friends and I were on a cycling trip and needed a place to stay with 3 beds. This motel was perfectly situated on our route. I made the arrangements for a very late check in and all went off perfectly. The pleasant surprise was the awesome room. Updated and clean with two doubles in one room and a 3rd... More

I just have to say how much I enjoyed my stay here! I was here for a total of 15days for work and I loved every second. It was clean, pet friendly, staff were awesome! I will 100% stay here again and recommend highly. Great job!!!

Driving by this small privately-owned motel, we noticed it was freshly painted and the grounds looked well kept. Since we were looking for ONLY a good night sleep, with the fancy amenities such as exercise room, pool and hot tub, we decided to, "take a chance" and check this inexpensive-looking motel out. WOW! It's too bad this owner's, "park-car-in-front-of-your-room motel"... More
