Best hotel in town. Could not have asked for a better place to stay. Great location. High speed internet (FREE OF COURSE) was a plus and good selection of TV channels. Even though the decor was not 100% but the room was very clean and bed was very comfy.

Our group stayed at this hotel for one night before our early morning departure on the MV Frances Barkley. It was a very comfortable hotel with all the amenities. The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed the overnight stop

My husband and I were in Port Alberni for a family gathering and wanted to stay in a hotel rather than with relatives. We like the freedom of a hotel room and the ability to come and go as we want. We stayed at the Barclay because the rates were reasonable and the restaurant serves great breakfasts. Our room was... More

Spent two nights here to see nearby Cathedral Grove and found reasonable pricing a great relief after a week in fancier city and resort hotels. Comfortable, large room, somewhat outdated in style, but very clean and homey cottage style furnishings. Like all hotels in BC the A/C was too strong and hard to control but having an openable window helped.... More

After a long day of travelling from Vancouver, by ferry and bus we straggled into the Port Alberni, Best Western at the end of a blistering hot day. The hotel staff welcomed us warmly. The rooms were large, cool, well appointed, and immaculate. Dinner was very good with large enough portions to keep our 3 young adult sons happy. The... More

We were very pleased with the hotel and the staff. They went above and beyond to make sure we were feeling welcome. No one rushed us - gave us directions - you name - everyone was just plain nice and helpful.

I was at the Best Western Plus Barclay Hotel for a conference in the fall of 2013. I had not been to this hotel before & the customer service was absolutely excellent as well as the food was amazing. I would definitely go back again. Being from the tourism industry myself, I was very impressed.

This was the first time that I stayed at a Best Western. On most of my business trips I stay at a Marriott property, but there was none available in Port Alberni. I would rate this hotel experience equivalent to a Marriott hotel. The food was excellent and reasonable-priced; the work-out room had a good variety of exercise machines and... More
