Although have stayed a few times in the Port Alberni had not found a place to return to. That has changed, this was a great spot. The rooms were lovely, decor was cute, the rooms spotless. A nice area outside to sit and enjoy time with friends. Parking was great for motorcylces. Close to walk to for drinks and dinner.

Small motel which has been nicely renovated and decorated. I was impressed with how clean the room was especially the kitchen and appliances; they were spotless. However we found the room a little small for two queen size beds, one of which was a little saggy, and it would create more space if they removed the large cupboard housing the... More

We are planning a trip to Port Alberni this summer and were interested in this location. We were passing through town last weekend so we stopped by to have a look. What a great place! We were able to see inside one room, room 104, and we were very impressed with the decor and cleanliness. It looks like the owners... More

We booked the two bedroom apartment - it was like a house and had lots of space for our family. Only needed somewhere to spend the night but it would be ideal for a longer stay with the full kitchen, covered patio (with table and chairs) and back lawn. There were two bedrooms with a queen bed each. Another double... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in Port Alberni. It's got a great location in a very unpretentious building beside the river. The interior is where the magic starts. It's obvious that the units have been refinished by someone with great taste and an accurate picture of what matters to travellers. Great beds, great reading lights, clean and quiet-... More

This place is amazing! They are rated as pet friendly, this is an understatement, if ever there was one. Your furry friend is almost more welcome than you are. The rooms are beautifully done and set up to be truly a "home away from home". There truly is no down side to this motel. Easy access to everything and the... More

We just moved to Ucluelet and had to be in Port at 8:00a.m. for job orientations. We chose this motel and were very satisfied. Have since stayed for an overnight so we could spend time in Port as well. Recently renovated, and the queen beds are in separate bedrooms which is kind of nice. The owners are super sweet and...

I've stayed here twice now on business. It's great to have a full kitchen and I found the room spacious as well as attractively decorated. I also like that the location is not right downtown, and it's easy to go for a walk by the river.

We stayed here as we were too late off the ferry to drive to Tofino - fleeting visit but a surprise package. Like another reviewer, we weren't sure what we would find as we pulled into the car park but on looking into the room found it well equipped, clean and modern. 3 of us were traveling together and there...

We had chosen this motel for the location, the prices and the online photos. Upon arrival in Port Alberni, we were somewhat disappointed by its exterior, but the RIverside was a great surprise once we actually got out of the car and investigated. Not only did our hosts accommodate our odd-size group, but they were informative and helpful and friendly.... More
