If you are looking for 5-star amenities and posh service, please go elsewhere. This place isn't for you. But if you are looking for a simple, laid-back spot to hang your hat for a few days, this motel will do the trick. Our unit (#27) was very clean and updated. While the bedspreads are a bit dated, the bathroom was very clean and well-tended to. The gardens outside were lovely and you can see the owner's pride in their property.
Free TV with all the premium channels. Free wifi.
Adjacent to the Paradise Fun Park with bumper boats and mini golf. For the under-10 set, it's very fun and easy to pass some time there.
The property is adjacent to the ocean and an easy walk down to the shore, but not oceanview due to its orientation. There is a side yard with barbecue and picnic tables which was pleasant for sitting outside, but again, no view from there.
Located in central Parksville, a 2 min drive to main beach and main street. Easy drive to Goats on Roof Market, Cathedral Grove, Qualicum Beach, Rathtrevor Beach and all the other attractions.
Free breakfast is a nice touch - two types of cereal, homemade muffins, tea, coffee, juice.
Note: the smallest rooms with just bed and shower are very very small. It worked for us as a "sleeper suite" attached to a larger room, but if you were travelling with a partner you'd probably want to upgrade to the proper double room. For a single person doing an overnighter, it would be adequate.
We were travelling as a family with small kids so liked having the two rooms, kitchenette, two washrooms. It gave us room to spread out.
