We were pleasantly surprised to have a kitchenette in our room (fridge, sink, hobs) as many rooms don't. The room itself was very comfortable, clean and tidy. We had a great sleep and it was lovely to have breakfast provided. Not the flashiest/fanciest hotel around but very nice/comfortable/clean/tidy and great value for money.

Reviewed 20 September 2011

This hotel answered all our needs – clean, comfortable, quiet, with in-room wifi and a convenient location close to restaurants, shops and the beach. Our room was on the ground floor, facing east, so we were able to enjoy the morning sun while having coffee and reading the paper on our very private little patio. A continental breakfast is included. There’s only one (cold) cereal, and not a very appealing one, but the muffins were pretty good – not the cakelike variety that often appear as part of hotel breakfasts – and there was juice and apples. Décor is not the trendiest, but we found our room quite bright and cheery, and the rate ($59 plus tax for seniors) would be hard to beat in this area.

...wife and I stayed here for Aug 19 and 20, 2011.
Place is really clean, room was hotel room style, really clean, no fridge, new air conditioning unit, good shower, great beds, old TV.
Price was great, $119 for Parksville in the middle of summer !Breakfast was basic, muffins, OJ and coffee. Room was quiet and parking was free and secure.
This is not a resort, no pool, no hot tub, just accommodation.
There is sooo much to do in Parksville/Qualicum we did not seek a resort.
