Beautiful little gem

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Feb 12, 2023via mobile
A beautiful little gem just when you enter Parksville
The owners are super friendly and knowledgeable about the area
The rooms are so clean-fresh and the beds are so comfortable
We stayed there for one night then went to Tofino for a day trip and returned and stayed another night
Would highly recommend
Date of stay: February 2023
Room Tip: They give you breakfast vouchers for Ricky’s all day grill which is right next door - limited...
Trip type: Travelled with friends

Lovely motel, friendly, clean and comfortable. We were visiting family in the area and taking in some walks at Rathtrevor Provincial Park. This was just the best base for our adventures. Thank you!

I found the couple running the place very unfriendly. First the man says in a disgustingly tone…. The dog can’t be on the bed, then along comes the woman saying the same thing in the same manner a couple minutes later. She didn’t have common courtesy to even look at us … just threw a blanket on the bed as she says dog can’t be on bed. My impression of the 2 don’t seem to like to service to certain ethnic people. I’m old enough to read peoples body language as well as their tone. They need to be told that ALL customers should be treated equally …

Room tip: Don’t have your pets on bed

We stayed for 2 nights during the Covid restrictions
All protocols were followed and we felt very safe.
The room was spotlessly clean and the staff were very welcoming.
You could not ask for more!
We will definitely be recommending to our friends.

For all the times I would go to Parksville as a kid,I thought it would be nice to stay in this hotel,but we never did. This past weekend my sister and I had a little getaway From when we drove in, to when we left left just like home. John and Renee are very nice and hospitable. The room smelt so clean and was comfy. It was a 9 min walk from the restaurant in Tigh Na Maria where we ate which was awesome cause we didn't need to cab. The bunnies we saw on the property were lovely. You couldn't even here the traffic on the main road at night or in the day. We will be back and this time I will bring my kids.

We love staying here - very clean, well maintained, charming little motel close to Rathtrevor Beach, the fabulous Parksville Boardwalk and next door to a new Ricki's restaurant. Arbutus Grove Motel offers exceptional value. We return every year and recommend a stay here if you are heading to or through Parksville.
