Full kitchen and full bath, separate bedroom with queen and double. Yes you are still sharing the bedroom, but you can enjoy the combined kitchen/living. Window AC in main area only. On highway 4 so ask for a unit away from the entrance, anything above 104. However, not too noisy (we were in 102) when closer. Pool (al fresco!) And...

I chose this motel based on the Trip Advisor reviews, and I wasn't disappointed. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The bathroom had been newly refitted and the room had good facilities. We liked that there was a microwave and fridge. There was a flat screen TV and I used the computer in reception (if I'd brought a laptop,...

We booked the Somass Motel because it was reasonably priced and the #2 rated place in Port Alberni. There is a separate office building and several buildings surround it with 3 to 5 units in each. The buildings were very tidy on the outside with fresh paint and colorful flower boxes. We had room #116, which was an end unit...

We have the pleasure of staying at the Somass Motel for a number of years now and always look forward to arriving to a VERY CLEAN and WELCOMING room! Without a doubt, this is the cleanest motel/hotel I have ever stayed in. We travelled for 3 weeks from Calgary to Tofino and I wish I could just have a Somass...

We stopped there on our way to Tofino. It was above and beyond our expectation nice and clean 2 bedrooms and full kitchen with patio table and beautiful hanging baskets of flower. I would consider going to Port Alberni another time for a weekend get away it is totally worth it.

I think it was probably the best Motel I have stayed at. The staff were courteous,friendly and extremely helpful. The room was bright, clean and well equipped. The next time we visit Port Alberni I will make reservations at this Motel.

My husband and I went to Port Alberni for the Salmon Festival. Friends that we were going to meet there recommended this place. Otherwise, I would have never chosen it. It doesn't look like much, but its a great deal. First, it was very quiet, even with the festival going on a few blocks away. The rooms are away from...

We helped the Kiwanis Club of Port Alberni with the Salmon Festival. A friend made the reservation for us, it turned out great. Very clean, very comfortable and centerally locatated. There are 2 negatives, the coffee pot was not always throughly cleaned and there were three bees in the room despite the room being closed all day.

We stayed overnight in this motel before taking the early boat to travel up the Alberni Inlet to Bamfield. The owners are friendly and helpful, and clearly take pride in keeping up the standards of their accommodation. Our room was very quiet and comfortable, great beds for a good sleep. We were able to park our car right in front...
