I stayed at the Paradise Seashell Motel for a week in October then again for a week in November. Both times I was very happy with the service and accommodations, very friendly service, clean well kept rooms and an excellent location in Parksville! The price was also excellent for what you get, probably the most comfortable beds I've ever slept... More

Nice and very reasonably priced. Close access to the ocean. Large clean rooms and bathrooms. Friendly staff and an ok breakfast which could have used more variety. Nice to have laminate flooring instead of carpets especially when you are close to the ocean and sand. Mini golf looked good but we didn't have a time to try it

The room I received with the free wifi, comfortable bed and shower room/stall was cosy, comfortable, and quiet. The wifi signal was not too bad. I had stayed at this motel twice. Each time was uneventful. I have read some of the other reviews that were rated either average or less than average. The rooms I was put in were... More

Pros: Basic hotel room, nice to have kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave & sink. more room than some around beds. Good value. Mini-golf (one round free with room booking) and bumper boats were fun. Short walk to beach, nice walk, good area for skim boarding. Nice to have continental breakfast included in price. Cons: No air conditioning so room got... More

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!
