Parksville Hotel Room vs Cottage

The Parksville/Qualicum Beach area is a popular destination and for good reason. There are plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities to enjoy and with the temperate climate visits can be made during any season. Come and visit the beautiful beaches or go on a hike in one of our many parks. If you are a golfer, the nearby courses are open year round. For a truly unique experience storm watching is just a few hours away. During the Winters head up to Mount Washington for a day on the slopes. Parksville is the quintessential vacation destination for singles, couples, groups and families who enjoy outdoor activities

There are a variety of accommodation choices to choose from in Parksville and hotel rooms are a popular choice. But did you know you can get much more value from a cottage at Oceanside Village Resort for the same cost? There are many advantages staying at our cottages compared to a Parksville hotel room and here are just a few.

Cottage Interior

Parksville Hotel Rooms Do Not Feel Like Home

When staying in a Parksville hotel you are confined to one tiny room. There isn't much space to do much of anything except sleep. If you are traveling with your family, a Parksville hotel room will surely not be entertaining for your kids. In an Oceanside Village Resort cottage you will have at least 864 sq feet of space and many of our cottages even have multiple bedrooms, numerous bathrooms and additional loft areas. Be assured that each member of your group will have sufficient space to relax or play in. All of our cottages are tastefully designed and include all the comforts of home. Some of our cottages are even pet friendly so you can bring along furry members of the family as well.

Parksville Hotel Rooms Do Not Have Kitchens

In Parksville hotel rooms you are restricted to one small mini bar fridge which forces you to eat most of your meals out at restaurants. Not only can this be costly, but also unhealthy. Days on end of eating fatty restaurant food can really take a toll on your digestive system and in worse case scenarios can even ruin your vacation if you end up encountering digestive issues.

At our cottages you will have the use of a fully stocked kitchen, including cookware, dishware and utensils, to prepare your meals and a spacious eating area to enjoy them. Also included is a microwave for reheating. Make your family healthy meals in the cottage and choose when to dine out at a restaurant. Stock the fridge with healthy fruits, vegetables and snacks. Some cottages even have barbecues and outdoor eating areas.

Swimming Pool

Enjoy The Same Parksville Hotel Services and Amenities

While you are enjoying the comforts of home in your spacious comfortable cottage you will still be able to enjoy the conveniences of hotel amenities and services. At Oceanside Village Resort there is an indoor pool, fitness room, restaurant, full service spa, a front desk for information on the area and help with any questions. Also included is free WIFI and parking.

With all these advantages to staying at a cottage, why would you even want to stay in a hotel room?
