Just passing through with no reservation and stopped to see this place. They showed me one of their rooms and I took it. One of the better Hotels that I have stayed in at Parksville. It is a short walk of 5 minutes to the beach there. Expect great service from this outfit. It is a private, family run operation... More

We were out in Parksville looking at real estate and needed a place to stay for about 2 weeks. We phoned half a dozen places hoping to get a weekly rate and the VIP Motel owners seemed to be the only ones who had the ambition to actually get back to us and make us a reservation at a fair... More

My wife and I went to Vancouver Island on Oct 12th 2013 for thanksgiving weekend. We spent our last night at the VIP Motel for a decent rate. We called many hotel/motels and got a better price at the VIP. The front desk lady, not sure if she was the owner or management was extremely nice. She showed us the... More

Like most motels in Parksville, this is an older, somewhat dated property. But it’s clean, comfortable and well maintained, centrally located and one of the better values in an area that can be quite pricey even off-season. We had a spacious end unit with two queen beds, a full kitchen and a dining table with four chairs. It was well... More

We were in town for a couple of car shows and VIP was recommended to us by family that lived in the area. What we found was a very clean room and the care and attention by the managers was second to none. The breakfast muffins, toast, tea, coffee, etc was a very pleasant surprise and we enjoyed them the... More

Not fancy, not a dive, just what you would expect for an affordable low end stop on the island. One of the few in the area that accepted larger breed dogs so definitely props for that. Outside of an old bra found behind a headboard, both rooms we had were clean. May not be for everyone, but good for a... More

The VIP is your typical highway side motel. It is a little dated, nothing fancy but it is clean, the management freindly and the service good. If you are passing through Parksville and like us need a safe place in the middle of a bad accomodation storm I can reccomend the VIP Motel.

We found this little motel just as we were entering Parksville. Very nice and helpful staff. Quaint little room, with comfortable bed and well equipped Kitchenette and full bathroom. Just a few minutes drive from Rathtrevor Beach and a short drive to the centre of Parksville.

We were looking for a place that had an extra bedroom as we were travelling with an young woman who is not part of our family. This place was perfect for us. The suite was very spacious. The two televisions sets were as surprise as were the number of comfortable chairs and the invitation to get anything you might have... More

We stayed at the VIP motel for four nights in November while visiting family nearby. Even though it was a long weekend and the motel seemed pretty busy, they gave us a king room for the price of a regular which really was a bonus. The room was clean and large with TV, two comfortable chairs, a kitchenette with a... More
