Stayed at this property for two nights. Very clean, very central, good value. Manager very customer oriented, good service. I would recommend this property to anyone who is not caught up in frills and fuss. This property provides what the traveller needs and the morning coffee is very good. Comes with a continental breakfast, all around good deal!

We travelled up the west coast of Vancouver Island and needed a place to stay after the long ferry ride. The VIP Motel was an excellent place to unwind and relax. The following morning we were treated to a 'take away' breakfast that was just perfect. The accommodation was clean and well appointed. It is run by a pleasant couple... More

Room is very clean, although a bit dated. Check in smooth but office has strong smell of cooked foreign food which doesn't give a great first impression. Motel says pet friendly but they don't have a dog walking area, in fact sign says to keep dogs off grass. We were told to go to the park down the street which... More

Stayed 1 night as part of a road trip. Room was comfortable and freshly cleaned. Continental breakfast. Well located for local bars & restaurants. Would stay again cheap rates. The Wi fi worked well, and the property was safe.

This motel is run by family that is so very pleasant and welcoming. Very clean. Rooms spacious and beds comfortable. Prices are very reasonable. Includes continental breakfast that has reasonable variety. I highly recommend and would not hesitate to stay here again. WiFi included.

Affordable. Very clean. Never had to worry about that. The lady who owns it offered us her living room floor once because they were out of rooms. Have stayed here every summer since I was 13. Highly recommend this place. Location is within walking distance from the beach.

Just passing through with no reservation and stopped to see this place. They showed me one of their rooms and I took it. One of the better Hotels that I have stayed in at Parksville. It is a short walk of 5 minutes to the beach there. Expect great service from this outfit. It is a private, family run operation... More

We were out in Parksville looking at real estate and needed a place to stay for about 2 weeks. We phoned half a dozen places hoping to get a weekly rate and the VIP Motel owners seemed to be the only ones who had the ambition to actually get back to us and make us a reservation at a fair... More

Like most motels in Parksville, this is an older, somewhat dated property. But it’s clean, comfortable and well maintained, centrally located and one of the better values in an area that can be quite pricey even off-season. We had a spacious end unit with two queen beds, a full kitchen and a dining table with four chairs. It was well... More
