The hotel was a convenient stop over for us on the way to Campbell river. The additional bonus of the motel was free crazy mini golf next door! The room was a little snug and small but the bed was comfy and we slept peacefully without much noise disturbance at all. Shower was good and powerful although a little small... More

Stayed three nights during hot August weather. Nice motel. Helpful kind staff. Room was very clean but even three fans couldn't cool the room off overnight. Staff moved us downstairs which was a little cooler. Would stay here again. Great coffee and light breakfast. Good value for money.

Are you looking for a place to feel comfortable and welcome? Tanya + Kevin are fabulous hosts. If I had a choice, I would have stayed longer. The rooms are very clean and have all you need. Minutes to the nicest beach, the fun park with mini golf + bumper boats. Many food choices within minutes of driving and several... More

When we arrived on August long weekend of this year, we found out the new manager Tanya cancelled our reservation, and this is after we called five days prior to our arrival to confirm our reservation. Second, we never received our round of mini golf like everyone else during our stay. We got it when we left and paid for... More

This is a poor motel, old and not clean (we found hair on our bed sheets). The room was good in size, but there is no air conditioning and no fridge. The wifi didn’t work at all in our room. As we arrived we were warned by the friendly receptionist that the wi fi in the back rooms was not... More

The accommodation was the ideal spot - close to the beach, very central to Parksville, with restaurants and shopping nearby. The hosts were awesome! Thanks for your great hospitality. Very reasonable and spotlessly clean rooms with continental breakfast in the morning. We'll be coming back next year!

I stayed here August 10, 2015 A very dear friend from high school and I stayed for 1 night. We drove up from the south Island. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised by how welcoming the husband and wife team that manage the place, were. We asked for an upgrade to a larger room and were granted it no problem.... More

The hotel was in a great location and was comfortable enough. I didn't realize there was no air conditioning when I booked it so that was my own fault. It is a pet friendly hotel so that was great for us as we had our puppy with us. The wifi was extremely slow and breakfast wasn't until 8am and we... More

This place was great and the owner was very nice and accommodating. We stayed last year and I've booked to stay again this year. I would definitely recommend it. It was clean and quiet and in an excellent location. I also loved getting passes to the mini golf.

Friendly and helpful staff. Comfy beds. We were on the front of the building and it was close to the street so definitely not a quiet place. Good coffee in the continental breakfast. Fabulous beach and the mini gold is a Fun thing......very popular but not bad waits
