Arrived late evening, needed a bed! We were given a queen room at the back of the motel, cheapest available. The room was pretty clean, skirting boards needed a dust! Ok for a night, pretty cosy size was, basic without micro or fridge. Need to be careful of the bedlamps as we kept knocking our heads on them! Breakfast was... More

I stayed for 1 night, my husband has 2 more. We stayed in room 30 which is dog friendly for our 94lb lab. The room is very dated (think 1970s) and dim lighting but very clean and the staff are very polite and helpful. You can hear everything outside your room or in the rooms beside or above but it...

Stay here while being a vendor at Parksville Beachfest. Really nice people at the front desk and the aroma of fresh baking muffins to die for. This property is older, rooms are standard size for the era of the hotel. Main thing is they were clean. The rates best going for the area for a place I'd stay at and... More

This motel is a bare bones basic motel with a great rate. Rooms are on the smaller side but fantastically clean. The motel itself is very well kept. While I had understood the motel to be on the beach, or at least have a view of the beach, the access is a short walk. The beach is much less populated... More

We loved this Motel! The rooms were very reasonably priced, and good value for the price. The staff was very friendly and helpful and pointed us to great attractions in Parksville and great places to eat too. You get a voucher for free Mini Golf at the coolest mini golf place we have ever seen. Great place to stay if... More

If you are looking for 5-star amenities and posh service, please go elsewhere. This place isn't for you. But if you are looking for a simple, laid-back spot to hang your hat for a few days, this motel will do the trick. Our unit (#27) was very clean and updated. While the bedspreads are a bit dated, the bathroom was... More

I never really expect too much from motels and we chose this place as it was the best value for money and included breakfast. And even though yes, it had floral bedspreads (of course!), I was impressed with the room. Flat screen Tv, and large clean bathroom with full-sized tub. Standard microwave, fridge and coffee maker with complimentary coffee and... More
