What a clean and nice little motel! We reserved 2 nights here knowing that we wouldn't be spending much time in our room. It was very affordable, extremely clean and very nice owners. We had one queen bed and one double bed as that was the only type of room they had (when i booked 3 months in advance! )...

Stayed here with my family last week and had a nice stay. Standard clean hotel room. Good location and easy to access from main road. Good price for Vancouver Island. I would recommend this for anyone taking a road trip from Victoria to Tofino.

We had a 2-double-bed unit, without the kitchenette, for our family of four (two small kids). The beds were comfy enough. The unit was incredibly clean - possibly the cleanest motel room we've ever stayed at. The owner was very kind to our kids. Overall, it was a really good experience and I would consider staying there again. (And it...

The Arbutus Grove in the classic motel style is a true gem. The rooms are clean, comfortable, quiet and the motel itself is convenient to Parksville beaches and other attractions - you really couldn't ask for more.

Perfect location for our trip exploring the island. Clean, quiet and the staff was so nice and helpful. All of the light fixtures, outlets, TV, heat and air worked very well. Especially appreciated the "real" glassware and coffee mugs!

The little kitchen has everything you might need. The cleanliness of the motel is great! The kids have their own room, which is small but all we need. The lady at the front desk suggested we check out the Sand Castle Contest down at the beach and it was really amazing! Glad we stayed!

Clean, comfortable, and very convenient. Booked originally due to proximity of Arbutus Equestrian Center, and was delighted with the comfort and spaciousness of the room. Would have like an air conditioner that was more agressive - the room never got as cold as I like to sleep in, but, small price to pay. Friendly front desk, and the small bags...

Clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced! The ONLY thing that makes my rating a 4 star and not a 5 is the air conditioning never went below 19C, and I like a much colder room. However, that was a small price to pay.

We took a chance on this place, and it turned out to be a gem. Very spacious, clean, lots of "real" pillows as opposed to those tiny soft ones found in so many places. Great value for the price, which was excellent compared with many in the area.

Clean, comfortable beds, quiet and the hosts were very nice. I was reluctant to book due to how low the price was but it was a great room! There is green space for the pets and picnic tables to relax on. Coffee shop across the street, 5 minute drive to the beach at Rathtrevor - will return!
