Yes, it is an old building, but you can access it ground level from the back and ground level from the front.

long hallways, no elevators, lots of walking

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Poor breakfast
Stay satisfactory. Continental breakfast does not start until 7am which was too late for us and probably most people traveling. Pool does not have a very deep end so be careful you do not scratch your toes!

Unfortunately, we only have 4 rooms with a King Size Bed. Our market is such that rooms with 2 Queen Beds are more popular!

Breakfast Police

I don't give this place a very good rating due to several things happen.We normally stay at Wyndam Hotels because we enjoy the comfort of there places. This time we stayed in this place for family trip for soccer tournament. 1st thing that stands out for our family was the breakfast. One of the employee (guy)was making breakfast uncomfortable for everyone to eat. He was monitoring the eating room like a prison. He was stopping pp from leaving the eating room with anything from an apple to cup of coffee. Our room was short towels for the 3 days staying there with one day they didn't have enough towels to give out so we had to the next day to get towels. They ran out of extra swim towels each day . Our bedroom sunshades were ripped like a cat used it for scratch post. We had a group of adults partying next to us and we complained about the noise only to have them quiet for an hour. This is an older place and not bad but our experience was all that great for our family. Maybe stay on the top floor it maybe different

Dear Valued Guest, We are sorry that you felt that our Breakfast Attendant was monitoring the facility a little too diligently. This was his first week on the job and he was probably a little over zealous. He was however, following orders in not allowing food to leave the Breakfast Bar. Unfortunately, we have experienced both significant loss and spillage in the past and have asked that breakfast be consumed in the room. In regards to the torn sheer blinds in your room, we replaced them as soon as we were made aware of the problem. We are sorry that your stay was less than expected and hope you will try us again in the future. Thank you!

jacuzzi made me ill

Was given an unmade bed and non cleaned room. Changed room and given key that would not work. Jacuzzi was not working and made me ill. I complained and was told it was working. Checked on it and was still not working. Dishes in kitchenette were filthy. Very unfriendly cleaning staff.

Badly needs upkeep and renovations

This was a mistake but we arrived after the 24 hr cancellation. The non-smoking room smelled of smoke. There were wires running across the room to outlets without covers. There was a pile of dust behind the ice machine which had exposed wires. The doors from the hallways were held open with rocks. The pool looked dingy. The front desk didn't dare ask how our stay was which doesn't surprise me. All of the restaurants/shopping were far away (10km +) heading towards Parksville. There is no tourist activities. Check out other hotels near the Walmart or drive to Parksville/Qualicum Beach.
