This motel was absolutely awful. When we arrived, we couldn't open our door - we had to jimmy out key to get it open and then push our entire body weight against the door to close it on the other side. There were bed bug protectors on one of the two mattresses and one of the two box springs but they were filled with holes and held together with duct tape. There was something brown, sticky and greasy splattered all over one of the box springs. The doors and walls were dirty and the tub was stained brown. It was so bad we decided not to stay the night. Worst of all, they refused to give us a refund so we had to pay the full night (which was around $280 CAD) despite not even staying there. I took photos of everything. We ended up getting a less expensive room at the Bayside resort across the street which was BEAUTIFUL. Don't waste your money at this awful motel.

We stayed here at the end of Aug and will stay again. VERY clean and beds were comfy for sure. I am picky and this place totally exceeded my expectations. The rooms have been reno'd and it was quiet. The staff were professional and again, room was super clean. We walked each day across the street to the beach and grabbed coffees at McDonalds next door. I simply cannot complain about anything with this motel. I would recommend this place over the Bayside Resort everyday - bad service and rooms at VIP cleaner and newer. Beach is available to everyone. Great job VIP and we will be back constantly. Thanks.

Clean, spacious rooms with super comfy beds and extra pillows already in the room. This is a cheap and cheerful style motel but everything about it is great. New clean furniture. Not an old musty overstuffed piece of upholstery to be seen. Sunny, the fellow that runs the front desk is fantastic. Good heating and air-conditioning. Basic bathroom but clean and lots of towels. Everything works.

I was on a motorcycle trip when I booked at this motel as it had the best price of Motels in Parksville. What a pleasant surprise! I was met by the manager ( can't remember his name, I think it was Sonny) and he was very professional and helpful with my wifi connection. This is an older Motel that has been updated like new. I liked the ground floor entrance to the rooms which were updated and spotless. I could not hear any road noise while here and would highly recommend this motel as I believe it's great value in today's prices. A clean room and good bed is all I require when travelling and this motel certainly met my needs. Breakfast is not included but MacDonalds is just one block down the street.

We stayed at the VIP for 3 nights. The whole experience was excellent! The gentleman that checked us in was very nice and helpful, the cleaning staff were also very helpful. It was nice to have laundry service with a FREE washing machine. The rooms were very clean and the shower and bathroom were excellent. The lighting in the bathroom was so bright and cheery. There was a breakfast, which was limited due to Covid. The coffee in the room was excellent. I slept like a baby in the comfy beds. I also liked the 'green' area to sit and have a picnic or just relax. A great family motel.

We booked this hotel last minute. What a hidden gem. The room was clean and bathroom up to date. The room had a kitchen in it and after traveling for more than a week it was nice to have a home cooked dinner. The have laundry facilities and the owner/ manager gave us free laundry soap. After dinner we went walking down to the ocean which is across the road. The next day we went to a park where there were 2 baseball games and lots of pickle ball games. We had our lunch here and again walked the beach (low tide). They had a sand sculpture compaction happening Wow is all I can say, This hotel was in the perfect spot. LOved it there

Reasonable pricing. Dogs are welcome but I didn't know that you have to let them know in advance that you are bringing one. A little surprise $20 fee. The man in the office was friendly. An easy walk into town.

We came down to Parksville for an unplanned mini break. Last minute decision but enjoyed our stay. This property is older but well maintained. Room was very clean and beds comfortable, two aspects which are important to us. Basic continental breakfast included, which was served outside on the lawn. Works well as long as the weather cooperates -just like camping! Motel is centrally located and easy walking distance to the beach & boardwalk. Recommended for those traveling on a budget.
