A Motel should have all its facilities in good working condition: the Skylite is a very good example of what is wanted. Clean and pleasant room with nice managers in attendance. Especially good value for holiday location and summer season. Convenient to the range of restaurants and beach facilities.

The new owners took over the motel and they are so polite and sweet. They also provided a continental breakfast that was so good. Especially I was very happy since I was allowed to bring my dog. The location was also good. It was right beside of Tim-hortons and Boston pizza.

There is so much old dirt and food stuck to everything. Blinds, curtains, all the walls & doors are banged up. Bring rubber gloves and a hazmat suit. Absolutely gross when you step inside. Sleeping with one eye open. I can't believe that this place got anything higher than a 1 or 2. Would have left immediately if anything else... More

Friendly and helpful staff, good clean motel room with kitchen. Ideal place for a visit to the Pacific Rim Park. The Legion in Parksville is worth a visit for menbers of the RBL. Just off the main highway into town but not noisey. The price was reasonable.

A great "dog-friendly" place to stay with no size restrictions on dogs like most other hotels/motels in the area! The owners are very friendly and have great customer service. It's not somewhere you'd stay if you plan on spending all your time in your room, but it's a great place to eat and sleep amidst days spent at the beach... More

If you need a roof over your head and a "clean enough" room (just don't look under the beds or you might find used food, random flip flops and spider heaven) then this will get the job done. It didn't cost and arm and a leg and it was reasonable price.The kitchen was very handy and quite fully stocked. Not... More

Clean rooms and friendly staff. They are pet friendly as well! A bit dated and our room had a smoky smell. Not sure if they still alow smoking. Next time I would ask for a non-smoking room. Over all we had a pleasant stay!

This hotel is older and shows it's age. The rooms are larger and you can pay a little extra and have a room with a kitchenette. The linen was clean and the room had no smells that some older motels have. I do not think they have enough time to give the room a thorough cleaning like dusty the Kleenex... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room, huge! with flat screen tv, frig, microwave and general cleanliness. We had just spent $224 for a very tiny room at Friday Harbor (Earthbox Inn) and this was less than half that.
