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

We stayed September long before school started, last hurrah for my son. He enjoyed walking the short distance to the beach each day and collecting shells when the tide was out it was a nice long beach. The included game of mini golf was good and one of several we played. The accommodations were a good location being only 10-15...

We stayed at this busy place on our way to Tofino. There were lots of children around perhaps because of the funland and mini golf connected. We received 2 free tickets for the well kept course with lovely blue fountains and rivers with floating ducks. The staff was very accommodating whether serving ice cream, registering guests or RV units, or...

Paradise Seashell Motel is in an excellent location to visit Coombs (goats on the roof ice cream and very cool statues), drive to west side of Island, see the amazing sand sculptures, walk on a very nice Boardwalk, and of course, go to the beach. The mini golf next door is owned by Paradise, and you can get the golf...

Motels have always been something that concerns me. We've booked at some and been scared to take out shoes off. Paradise Seashell is a wonderfully clean hotel with very comfortable beds and lots of space for our family (2 adults and 4 kids). We have a suite with 2 rooms, 3 beds. Also microwave, small fridge and dishes. Would highly...

Our Oceanside Parksville accommodation is in a prime location, right next door to the world famous Paradise Mini Golf and Fun park, which provides hours of family fun for all ages. You'll receive Free Mini Golf. (During opening months of Paradise Fun Park March - September) A short walk through the property takes you to one of the nicest, safest, sandiest beaches on Vancouver Island. This Parksville Accommodation is within walking distance of many restaurants, ranging from casual to fine dining. For those who want to stay closer to home we have a bbq / picnic area for the use of our guests. For those with pets, we are also pet-friendly, with four rooms set aside for our four-pawed guests and their families. Since we only allow pets in our pet-designated rooms, those who are sensitive to pets can enjoy pet-free accommodation by reserving one of our non-pet rooms. This Parksville Motel, is centrally located on Vancouver Island making it a perfect home base for exploring the many other beautiful areas with just a day trip in any direction. Long Beach (west) Campbell River (north) and Nanaimo/Chemainus or Victoria (south) to name a few. There are many modes of transportation available to explore Vancouver Island - bus, car, tours and biking and hiking. And for the more adventurous, outdoor activities such as sailing, kayaking or caving can all be booked from the Motel.
