Stayed here for our anniversary we loved it. The hotel is clean and staff are friendly. There’s a communal outdoor area with a BBQ and a fire pit that was nice to hang out in while we were winding down after a fun day in parksville. We love this hotel because of the location, there’s direct access to the beach and it’s close to everything you need. You also have access to free unlimited mini golf if you’re staying at the hotel. Will definitely be back next year.

We stayed at the Tides Inn on two separate nights. On both occasions checking in was fast and efficient and the rooms very clean and well- equipped. The Tides Inn is a great location, being a very short walk from the lovely beach and many places to eat.

We accidentally left behind some property and the team at the motel were very kind and helpful in ensuring we retrieved it.

We would happily stay at the Tides Inn again.

We have stayed at this property a number of times over the years and have never been dissatisfied. We stayed a few years ago, and they were undertaking renovations. We stayed again last night and many of the renovations are complete. Wow! They have done a great job of upgrading an older property! The outdoor relaxation area, with seating and BBQ's is gorgeous, as are the seating areas for the back, bottom floor units. We had a king unit. The bed was wonderful and the upgrades very nice. Good job folks!!! And great location as well!!!

The cedar on the facade of the hotel was a sight to behold, with charming flower baskets that added a pop of colour and life to the surroundings. It was a delightful blend of nature and aesthetics that made our stay even more enjoyable. What a transformation!

Very nice staff, friendly and professional. Manager Juper is great!
Clean rooms, complimentary coffee, daily. Ample parking. Close to all amenities and a very short walk to the beach. Afforable too. I stayed there two full months. Great spot to see lots of eagles and other wild life.

I needed a place to stay for one night while I was visiting friends in town. This was the least expensive I could find on-line so took a chance. I am soooo glad I did. The room, #60, is super quiet, sparkling clean, bright and well-appointed. TV, wi-fi, microwave, bar-fridge, koenig coffee maker, wonderfully comfortable bed with 4 great pillows, table and chair, suitcase stand all included and working. I didn't need it but there is a/c and baseboard heating. The bathroom has a heated mirror and shower c/w shampoo and body wash and a couple of small bars of soap for those of us that prefer that. Plenty of thick clean towels as well. The property is well maintained and has a large, well marked parking lot. I was met by the very friendly manager who let me check in an hour early. I probably got an off-season rate, but the price was "incredible" for a motel these days. It is obvious that the owner takes pride in his property as everything is so nice. ( I am staying the next night in a chain motel BW down the highway an hour away and am paying almost double what I paid here.)
