We stayed for 2 nights during the Covid restrictions All protocols were followed and we felt very safe. The room was spotlessly clean and the staff were very welcoming. You could not ask for more! We will definitely be recommending to our friends.

For all the times I would go to Parksville as a kid,I thought it would be nice to stay in this hotel,but we never did. This past weekend my sister and I had a little getaway From when we drove in, to when we left left just like home. John and Renee are very nice and hospitable. The room smelt so clean and was comfy. It was a 9 min walk from the restaurant in Tigh Na Maria where we ate which was awesome cause we didn't need to cab. The bunnies we saw on the property were lovely. You couldn't even here the traffic on the main road at night or in the day. We will be back and this time I will bring my kids.

We love staying here - very clean, well maintained, charming little motel close to Rathtrevor Beach, the fabulous Parksville Boardwalk and next door to a new Ricki's restaurant. Arbutus Grove Motel offers exceptional value. We return every year and recommend a stay here if you are heading to or through Parksville.

Visiting Vancouver Island and ended up in Parksville for the night unexpectedly. The Arbutus Grove Motel was a great find - the grounds are lovely (including the big black bunnies who seem to make themselves at home in the green grass!) and the motel is great. The room was exceptionally clean and the linens are like new
