It's a bit loud. Room was clean, staff was very pleasant. Bathroom was decent. Overall pretty good nothing to complain about. We basically just slept and moved on. We didn't use the pool or restaurant. Lots of parking.

We have stayed in many hotels over the years and this was by far one of the best. The staff couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were immaculate everyday. The registration desk was more than accommadating. We will definitly stay there when we return to Port Alberni, BC.

Best hotel in Port Alberni, it is central, making it easy for walking, restaurants, stop off point, and travel point. Hospital visits would be one of the few things far away. Rooms, service and all other parts of the hotel are definitely Best Western. So can't go wrong. Only short coming is no breakfast with room, you need to either... More

We had expected this hotel in Port Alberni to be merely okay, but found it to be clean, comfortable, well-equipped and well-staffed. The reception staff were professional and politely friendly. The room was spacious and comfortable. The restaurant was cheerful and clean. We would definitely recommend it whenever possible.

We decided to stay the night at the last minute after a long day of travelling. We've stayed here before so we had no worries about staying again.

Nice large, clean, accessible, comfortable room; dog friendly too with waterfront walking area across the parking lot!. Stayed two nights here as base camp for day trip to Pacific Rim NP. Given the chance, would return to this property (even with the gazillion traffic signal aggravations on Hwy 1. north of Victoria)

I spent there just one night, the room was big enough and clean, the restaurant is small but you can enjoy a beer watching sports. The Wi-Fi was not son fast. It was a rainy and cold day so we could spent some time in the swimming pool.
