We found Arbutus Grove Motel to be a great place with great prices. We booked in for 5 nights then stayed a 6th night - why leave when it is a wonderful place to stay! It is clean and well set up with all the amenities of home - actually it was a home away from home for us! The management were very friendly & accommodating and every request was met immediately. The location was perfect - the kitchenette/room was very clean. Excellent value! Thank you and we will return.

We stayed at The Arbutus Grove Motel on March 19 and 20th. We were a party of five needing two separate rooms. We were very pleased with the location, the price, the cleanliness, the refrigerator, and the parking at this Motel. You are able to park directly in front of your room, so there is no packing luggage up stairs necessary. Oddly enough the two things I noticed that were different from other accommodation I have stayed at, was the great quality of the facial tissue in the bathroom, as well as the fresh smell of the towels.

Would we stay here again? Most definitely. You can't get better accommodation and cleanliness at a Motel for the price.

I love reading reviews about our little motel. So happy that you appreciated the little things we try to do to impress our customers. We try to go above and beyond so everyone enjoys their stay with us. Parksville is such a unique and interesting place to visit. We attempt to provide a homey atmosphere at a reasonable price. I hope we get to have you as guests again in the near future. Thank-you for taking the time to write this great review for us.

This motel is about 5 minutes drive from the main community beach in Parksville. There are some rooms with kitchenettes. Rooms are not particularly new, however, they are well kept up. It may be the cleanest motel I have stayed in. I would say very good value for money.

Wow so glad you wrote this great review telling others how clean and comfortable our rooms are. We offer great value at reasonable rates. We are located in a very quiet, safe area of town away from the main street community but also close to restaurants, coffee shops etc. We are close to Rathtrevor Beach and only 5 minutes from the Parksville Beach. We hope you come and stay with us again soon.

While it is an older motel it is very well maintained and updated. It is close to the famous Rathtrevor Provincial Park with its fabulous beach and my favourite, Top Bridge Park, where you can jump off the rocks into crystal clear pools. The gentleman at the desk was very accommodating. The room had all I needed and was spotlessly clean. No complaints. Good value.

Summer 2017. We'll located. Standard looking (row units) motel maintained very well. Comfortable bed and room. TV. Small frig and coffee station. For what it is, I would highly recommend it! (why do I need to come up with more characters to get this review published?)
