Honestly this motel is not luxury but very cozy and clean. A young lady welcomed us and good service was impressed. Comparing with other motels in Parksville this one is very clean. I strongly recommend stay here with comfort.

I needed a base in the Parksville area and decided to go cheap. The rooms are shabby and the breakfast is minimal.
However, the room including the bathroom was clean and the muffins tasted fresh. The rooms beside the driveway may be noisier. So, depending on your standards, if money is in short supply, I'd recommend this place.

Once we arrived we were greeted by two very polite staff members and had a smooth and easy check in.

The hotel was extremely clean and the were staff friendly and accommodating.

The hotel is in close proximity of the falls and town.

I would highly recommend and will be going back with family and friends.

We spent a lovely evening here. They upgraded our room to a kitchenette and it had a view of the ocean. Very quiet and clean room, comfortable beds and full bathroom and the owners were fantastic. Nice continental breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

Everything looks like it's 50 years old, old motel style room, therefore overpriced, even though clean, good service, even a small cheap breakfast included... Close to the ocean, the city centre, and the island highway. There is no reason to stop in Parksville, but if you do, the sancastle inn is probably not the worst choice.

We were enjoying a driving tour of Vancouver Island, and decided to spend two nights in Parksville. Finding the Sandcastle Inn was almost like coming home. We had an upstairs VERY SPACIOUS room, at very reasonable rates. An elevator was nearby, the staff was VERY pleasant and helpful, and the included breakfast was better than many "chain" motels by far.
The location was just off the "main street", in a quiet neighborhood, with convenient access to all necessary facilities, AND a nearby beach park.
In summary, we were treated like family !

My family and I stayed for 2 nights in late July. There are not many choice of accomodations in Parksville, but this one was affordable and had good reviews from other travellers. The shower was good, the room was clean, and the beds were somewhat comfortable. The front desk staff were always nice and polite. Also, it was air-conditioned. I would stay again and recommend it to others on a budget.
