Arbutus Grove Motel
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Parksville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Spent a couple nights at the Arbutus Grove last August. I commend the staff for being so friendly and willing to go out of their way to help anytime. The rooms were spotless and had very comfy beds and everything else we needed like Wi-Fi, microwave, fridge, stove and air conditioning. The room prices were also great! Thank you Arbutus Grove Motel for making my stay so pleasant and hope to see you soon.

This is a great motel! Very clean and comfortable. Bed was just right. Wi-Fi and TV were right on. Great channel selection and HD! One of the best TV,s we have found in a motel. Our host was very friendly and helpfull. Nice location, close to everything and away from the mad rush. We would definitely recommend The Arbutus Grove Motel to everyone.

Stayed 3 nights in Sept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a large room that was very clean with microwave, fridge, stove, coffee maker and large comfortable beds. The motel is conveniently located for site seeing in the area. Great value for the money and would definitely stay again.

We spent one night at the Arbutus Grove Motel in mid-October. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. We were just passing through, and were very comfortable there. Being able to park in front of the door was actually nice! We had to carry the bags only a few short steps to the door of our room. Our room had two beds in it--one with a soft mattress and one that was a little firmer. We are vegetarians, and the desk clerk recommended the "Rod and Gun", a restaurant and bar a short drive away, as being very good. We had a truly excellent housemade veggie burger there. Who would have thought? If we ever find ourselves in Parksville again, we would definitely stay at the Arbutus Grove Motel.

Room Tip: Our room was about half way down and was easily accessible and quiet.

This property is a one storey motel located on the highway south of Parksville proper.

You will need to travel to town if you require groceries.

There is a reasonably priced English-style restaurant which is open for dinner located across the street.

The wireless works well.
There is ample parking.
The rooms and bathrooms are clean.
The owners/staff are pleasant.
The beds are adequate.

There is moderate highway noise.
As mentioned in other reviews, they do allow dogs at this property, therefore you will hear barking at almost any hour.

The room price is high for a moderate property removed from most amenities.

Room Tip: All the same.

Thanks for taking the time to write your review. Yes we do take dogs and have had absolutely no problems with them. Our rates are higher in the summer and very reasonable in the winter and shoulder seasons. We have great value for the money.

A well maintained little motel on the outskirts of the parksville .....outskirts in that a drive is needed to get to any decent eateries. Rooms and exteriors are very well maintained. Bed was very comfortable but foam pillows were too bulky. The building is made of concrete block walls which didn't block the noise of the kiddies in the rooms on both:O sides of us. Overall ..... above average .....

We were pleasantly surprised with the very clean, spacious room. We were not looking for a property on the beach. This motel was everything we needed with a microwave, fridge and very comfortable bed. We would stay at this motel again if travelling through Parksville.
