Well first off, the front staff are incredibly friendly and the front staff manager was great. The female bistro staff were great but the 2 men working the bistro were less so. This is a very dog-friendly hotel which was perfect for us. I would definitely stay here again!

I have stayed here many times over the past 15 years and it is my regular go to place for accommodation in Parksville be it for business or pleasure. The water front views are great. The rooms are dated but still good value. Good meals in the restaurant but Sunday mornings on special days can be busy so reservations are... More

Lovely hotel on the ocean. Easy to get to and park. Spacious room with a great deck and a great view! Excellent staff, good food in the restaurant. Air conditioning was exceptionally quiet as the main unit is outside the room. Missed having a fridge in the room though.

A quality inn isn't my usual choice of hotel. However I had a speaking engagement at an event at that hotel so it just made sense to stay there. And I was pleasantly surprised and realized I shouldn't be so quick to judge! The location was beautiful. We had a great view from our room. It wasn't overly fancy but... More

Laid back "resort" motel with no AC unless your room is facing the ocean. Clean rooms and prompt cleaning service. The rooms, hallways and the property in general are dated and stuck in the '80s. Not sure I will ever stay here again. The location is good and within walking distance of some chain restaurants and next to a minigolf... More

On behalf of the Bayside we would like to thank you for your feedback! So far we have put in half of our A/C in the town side rooms soon all the rooms will have A/C. Our hotel is a hidden gem with the best ocean view in Parksville. Over these passed couple years, we have been doing sections of... More

Tired hotel- needs some TLC. . Room was clean-but had no air-conditioning, peeling wallpaper, and bathroom fan didn't work. Room had 2 double beds which wobbled terribly if you took a deep breath but they were fairly comfortable if you slept in them alone. No screen on the patio door, but lovely view of the parking lot...For even more money... More

Dear Guests, I must say after deciphering what you were meaning to say in your review; it was extremely disheartening to read. I always hope that our guests will give us a chance while staying at our hotel to rectify any dissatisfaction during their stay before writing an emotional negative review. We honestly try to make sure our guests are... More

A group of tapestry weavers rented space at the Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville for 5 days this past week. The room accommodated our needs extremely well. Several of our participants reserved rooms there as well. We also had an evening lecture in another space at this same hotel. The staff were friendly, extremely helpful and cheerful. We also had...

Staff very good. Asked for a fridge and got it. Overhead fan didn't work. Comfortable..Didn't have room with a view but it was quite quiet. More quiet than I would have thought.Clean. Attentive staff and nice rooms. Could do with a few more electrical plugs.
