PARADISE SEA SHELL MOTEL: AN ECONOMICAL STAY IN PARKSVILLE

Wednesday, June 4, Hans and I decided to stay overnight in Parksville. We picked the PARADISE SEA SHELL MOTEL because of the price and it was a good location, right near a beach. They offered a free continental breakfast that started at 8:00. Free internet service was also available, but they only gave time enough to send an E-mail message home.
The room was small but what can you expect for $39.95 plus taxes ($46.35).

SOMASS MOTEL: A NICE MOTEL IN PORT ALBERNI

Located on Highway 4, Hans and I chose Port Alberni to stay overnight as we wanted a full day to explore Tofino and the Pacific Rim Park. The SOMASS MOTEL is a nice family run motel. It was neat and clean and a refrigerator was provided which is always appreciated. The price was a reasonable $55.00 plus tax (63.25).

Unique Qualities: I liked the location of the motel. It was walking distance to town. You had to go over a bridge where we spotted a big beaver making its way down the Somass River. I know it's just a beaver but it was a pretty awesome sight for us city slickers. We also saw an Eagle carrying a fish home to its baby eaglets. Cool or what?
