“Nice place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

I stay at this hotel frequently while in Parksville. Even though there are other well-known hotels right beside the waterfront, I prefer to stay here. The rooms are always clean, staff is friendly, and it has always been quiet. Jackie is very helpful and friendly when you have questions about the local eating places and things to do in the area.

Arbutus Grove Motel is like a home away from home. It is nestled in a quiet location near the shops and a short walk to the beach. The front deck employee was friendly and helpful with giving direction and advice as to the best restaurants in the area. The room we stayed in was comfortable, clean and had a great atmosphere. The little touches were noticed as there was a fan made out of a towel was sitting on the tub, holding the soap. The coffee maker had coffee and tea waiting for use to make in the morning. In all, I would recommend this motel to anyone that would like a nice place to stay while in the beautiful Parkville area.

I have had the opportunity to stay at this lovely motel several times in the last few years and have always been impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and the grounds, as well as the rates for the rooms. The caretakers Jacqui & Scott are more than hospitable and in my opinion the reason that this motel is doing so well, oh and let's not forget their friendly dog Angus, who made my little dog feel right at home!

Room Tip: Book Early in the summer months, they sell out quickly!

This is a great little place to stop and enjoy what the area has to offer! The rooms are always super clean and comfortable, with everything you need. The staff are friendly, helpful, and courteous! Above all the price is right and it's located conveniently right off the highway! While we were staying here, we took in a festival at the park right on the beach, enjoyed a few good restaurants, and hiked the area around Top Bridge at Englishman River. Great time and great motel!

Beautiful hanging baskets full of flowers during summer is a nice touch along with the cedar benches out front where you can sit and relax at night, watch the world go by. We go up with our Car Club, we stay two nights and it's fantastic. We gather at night at the picnic tables on the grass for a potluck and enjoy a glass of wine with friends. Kitchenette rooms are ideal for heating up our food, beds are cozy and every morning they were made up for our return after a long day at the car show. if your looking like for a Motel that feels like home ~ look no further ~
