We had a wonderful stay! Great for the whole family with playground, pool, grills and close to the beach! Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Rooms were spacious and clean, we had a stove in our room which was great. Wewill be staying again next summer.

We stayed here over Christmas 2015 and it was all we needed. Seemed clean, certainly was not modern or nicely decorated though. But an appropriate price for a clean place to sleep. Wifi password shown in room never did work however. Mom&Pop place, respectful and polite.

This is an old motel in desperate need of refurbishing. As clean as can be expected with out dated and over used accommodation. Fridge used for storing towels, cupboard door in kitchen area hangs open. Have to go to office to pick up cold breakfast and return to your room with tray. Paid $100.00 plus per night which was far... More

This is your average motel. The family that run it are great! So sweet. Nice, simple place. Can't go wrong here. Affordable. If you are passing through town, the VIP may be the place for you. All one level.

Stayed four nights in a room with a kitchen. The room was clean, and had everything we needed. About a 15 minute walk to the beach (Parksville Community Beach) or less than 10 minutes to drive. Across the street from the mini-golf. The decore was dated, but that just meant I didn't have to worry too much when the dog... More

This place is ridiculously over priced for what it is. I have stayed in b and b's for less and had a much better visit. We took the late ferry over to the island and had looked up this spot before. It had good reviews however misleading. So we drove to the VIP motel not expecting anything fancy just wanted... More

We stayed two nights. The hosts are gracious but not good at English. The room was clean enough, but I don't care for the smell of other people on the pillow/pillowcase so I brought my own. This was the first hotel that I felt the need to use them on the Island. I would recommend this for a family since... More

Was close to everything. Clean and good value for the cost. Children love the space in the family suite. Not cramped at all. Close to the Community Park and the water park there along with the beautiful beach front.

We stayed here for two nights with our dog. The room was very clean, location was great and a good price including our dog. It was very quiet as well. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice simple, clean place to stay.
