the nicest place to just relax

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Dec 26, 2018
we had a very clean room, the beds were very comfy, the location was great and easy to find right on the main drag. the large front hedge blocked the traffic noise and added a quiet peaceful nights rest.

We stayed here for a few days on the strength of previous reviews. On approaching the motel the appearance is somewhat underwhelming. Once you get inside, however, the rooms are clean and nicely decorated and modernised, with all the facilities you could reasonably expect at this price. The owner/operator clearly goes to considerable effort to make sure everything is as good as it can be for the guests, and we would thoroughly recommend it as an excellent value for money stay in the area.

We come to Parksville once or twice a year, and we have always had a great stay. Yes, it is an older motel, but it is well cared for and has excellent rates. We will often book a kitchenette for ease and convenience. It is well supplied for what we need (breakfast and lunch); however you may want to bring your own paper towel and salt and pepper, etc.

This time, our bed had a memory foam mattress in top, and it was very comfortable. I believe that there is wifi routers in all rooms now to ensure good connections.

Serious Coffee is right across the street and is also an excellent stop in Parksville, as is the British Bobby for supper. Take note that it is in the outskirts of town, so not very close to shopping and the main beach area.

Thank-you for this great review. There is nothing better than a review from a customer that stays with us on a regular basis. Yes we do get a lot of comments about our very comfortable beds and our latex pillows. We have recently upgraded our wifi to the best there is so each room has its own modem with super connection and very dependable. We have also upgraded our TV channels. Lots of movie channels, sports channels and everything else you could want. We are on the south end of Parksville which is a very quiet, safe location away from the downtown core. Our customers really appreciate that. Once again thank-you for taking the time to write this review for us and please book with us directly for the best rates. Call 250-248-6422 or toll-free 1-888-667-7250.
