Stayed for the month of March while my husband worked on a new house. Very clean and comfortable. Forested area next to the motel for your dog. 10 min walk across the highway for a nice trailed beach walk. Wayne and Jerrie were super friendly. We're happy to give you any information you needed.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 June 2016

Having visited Parksville many times over the years I'd not previously discovered this lovely little motel. Located at the south end of Parksville it's just a matter of minutes to the shops and the beach. Upon arriving for a two-night stay we were greeted by the innkeeper Wayne, who was completely charming and engaging. Having explained the "No Smoking" in...

That was a lovely stay and last night Dec 5,2016 we had a huge snowstorm(huge by Island standards)...

Efficient, friendly and quick service got us into a clean, comfortable room for the night. Close to town and a good recommended breakfast from the owner next day got us on our way with a smile. I even bought a mug!

We just completed our second two week trip on Vancouver Island. This was our favourite place to stay. We even came back for a second stay. These guys have thought of everything. - comfy chairs - a desk with lighting - microwave, fridge and coffee machine - hairdryer and bathroom fan. They also provide great info on the area.

On our way to Nootka Sound for fishing, my buddy and I have stayed the last two years at the Arbutus Grove Motel. Always clean, good rooms, friendly management, and at a reasonable price. If you are traveling with a trailer (like a boat), there is space on the premises for parking out front safely.

Thanks for the great review of the Arbutus Grove Motel. We are an awesome location for a stop over on your way to either the north or the south. We have a great property with three acres so lots of room for boats, RV's, trailers etc. Hope you caught some fish and will come back and stay with us again.

A great place if you're stopping for a night or two. Always clean and well taken care of, great rates, easy access to the Inland Island Hiway and close to all kinds of restaurants on the strip thru Parksville and the beach. A reliable, cosy little place you can always count on. Kitchenette rooms available.
