We come to Parksville every summer and stay for a little over a week because we couldn't stay that long this time we decided to stay in this little motel. The rooms were clean, the breakfast could use some improvements. The couple that runs the motel you can tell are trying their very best and take pride in their work....

This simple roadside motel puts the bar very high when doing a road trip. After my first visit iall other motels seemed to be lacking something because this one has it all; cleanliness, super comfy beds, kitchen facilities (no stovetop), all kinds of amenities, cheap price, friendly staff, views and best of all, free breakfast. Oh... I forgot; free miniput,...

The only reason I rated this a 3 was that it was older. It was clean and well taken care of but could use a bit of an update. The service was nice and included a small cont breakfast. For the low rate they charged we found it to be a good value.

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago for two nights. Front desk staff was very accommodating. We required the use of an iron and ironing board and also a hair dryer. These items were very quickly provided to us. We found our room to be very comfortable and quiet. Our room and washroom was very clean. The breakfast items...

My 11 year old son & I took a trip to Parksville to take part in the Canada Day Parade, & Fireworks...and stayed at the Paradise Motel. The friendly couple managing were great & very helpful! We arrived and were happy to know we got a great rate & a free round of Mini golf next door with our stay!...

Good little motel for stop over visits. A little noisy from the main road by you have to except that being right on the main road. Seems like a fairly older building we had a lower level room and you can hear folks above you if they are moving around. The provided breakfast was really really basic and sitting space...

I have stayed at this motel a number of times while I am over visiting family in Parksville. Great hotel for the price. It has been painted on the exterior, room is comfy but a little dated but clean. Close to all things you need while in the area.

My husband and I stayed here for one night and it was great. The bed was comfortable, the room was very clean and the location was convenient. The managers were really personable and nice. The added round of Mini Golf was awesome too. The only small annoyance was we heard the people in the room next to us having weird...

We were not particularly impressed with the hotel. It is very dated in look and features. The room was reasonably comfortable, but lacked the ability to cool the room down sufficiently for a good sleep. The hotel lacks sufficient parking facilities (it's a motel, right?) although it offers the neighbouring car park as an overflow as long as you don't...

We are glad you enjoyed the mini golf, it is a wonderful feature. We are always happy to tell large crowds to be quiet at the "quiet time". If you need parking for your next stay we will gladly move our cars and allow to take the manager parking spots, so if this happens again please inform front desk staff...

Stayed here for one night and found the rate to be very good. We did not take advantage of the complimentary breakfast or walk on the beach behind us. There were plenty of towels and coffee maker in the room and the beds were fairly comfortable. A great place to stay. Any time of year
