“Nice stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We stayed here as a drive in motel. Very nice and clean rooms. Very friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again! Convenient location to Parksville. Although it is close to the road, it was still quiet.

Thank-you for your very thoughtful review. We really do appreciate our customers taking the time to let others know about us. We are not a fancy resort on the beach but we offer nice clean comfortable rooms at great rates. We have flat screen, high definition TV's, air conditioning, fridges, microwaves, coffee pots in all the rooms and all at a price you can afford. Great pillows and comfortable beds too. I hope we get to have you stay with us again soon.

I was looking for a 2 bedroom suite not far from Rathtrevor beach where we were attending a family gathering. All they had left was a room with 3 beds, one bed in another separate room. The price was right for 5 people. We also had our small dog. The place was very clean, the beds were very comfy, the rooms quiet even though the road was right out front. The air conditioner was quiet. Everything has been brought up to date. I would definitely recommmend this place and stay here again. Oh yeah and last but certainly not least, the owners and staff were very friendly.

This motel is nice and clean, and I mean clean- even corners and under beds are clean. The managers are helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this to anyone. It is located on the edge of town so you are best to drive in as the highway is quite busy.

We had booked for a six night stay. Check in was very fast and the kitchenette was clean and even had a stove. Parksville is halfway up the island so this makes for a good base to come and go from. The room was very quiet, even though it was not far from the road. Will definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Arbutus Grove Motel, this weekend in Parksville. We booked a triple room and it was really good for our family. The room was spacious, clean, the beds were ever so comfortable. Really quiet area but close to shops and attractions. Will stay here again.

Stayed for one night based on tripadvisor reviews and found motel to be as advertised. Reception was prompt, courteous and efficient- felt welcomed on arrival. Room was clean, and we were surprised it was as quiet as it was considering motel location near main road. Motel is close to all Parksville amenities, overall a good choice.

We vacation on the west coast yearly and the Arbutus is always a stop along the way. The rooms are extremely clean and very well maintained. Even if you are staying in a non-kitchenette room you are provided with a mini fridge and microwave. The rooms have wall mounted flat screens and the office provides free dvd rentals (with a fairly extensive list!). The motel is also pet-friendly which is great for us and our furry companion! The staff are fabulous, very friendly…nothing is ever a problem. Our few nights stay happened to be at the beginning of the Easter weekend and we arrived to chocolate eggs and bunnies in our room…what a nice touch (our kids were thrilled)! Thanks Arbutus!!!!
