This motel was clean and basic. The managers were hospitable and helpful in every way. It was located in a central area close to Qualicum Beach and right in the heart of Parksville. There were many restaurants and stores close by. We were very near the beautiful Rathtrevor Beach Park.

We were very happy with this very clean, comfortable, well maintained, hospitable, and reasonably priced motel. Even though it is near the Island highway, it is a quiet property with nicely landscaped grounds. A wonderful plus to this motel is that you are able to park right outside your room...no stairs, no elevator, very convenient for moving in and out..just... More

The Arbutus is a Motel but do NOT be put off by the word. It is more like a Hotel. It is a family run business. We would rate the Arbutus an easy 9.6 as a place to stay on Vancouver Island. The rooms are comfortable and kept very clean with everything you would need for a long or short... More

Spacious, quiet, and very clean room. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Beautiful grounds, well kept area. Bed was very comfortable and even the coffee was good. Stayed here a few years ago and was glad it had not changed. Very good rate was a bonus. Would definitely stay here again.

The kitchenette was simply perfect. The room itself felt like a little cabin. The location is on the edge of town, so there is less hustle and bustle but easy to get back on the highway. The staff was perfect,,, friendly yet allowed your privacy. The A/C was wonderful during the heat wave. Unlike other hotel/motel experiences, there was no... More

We stayed for three nights in this motel, and were very impressed with it. We got a warm welcome, and it was easy to get comfortable. Car Parking is free, and right in front of the door, and so with no stairs, it's easy to come and go. The room was very clean, and the bed was super comfortable. We... More

We have stayed here twice and been happy with both of one night stays. The rooms look like they have been updated and were clean and comfortable. Service was great and we had our dog so the green space next to the motel was great for night walks.

Our stay at Arbutus Grove was excellent. A great place for two couples or a family to stay. Full kitchen and a bedroom! Great value. The owner was very welcoming and suggested some wonderful restaurants.

the service I received from the woman managing the motel was great. Very friendly, indeed. I would stay there again. The pricing was good too. Very clean, comfortable, wifi was not too bad either. Recommend to stay there.
