This was my 2nd time staying at this hotel. It is still the best choice while in Port Alberni. For me it was about the proximity to the rink, the cleanliness of the hotel room and the bar in the lobby. Wouldn't stay any place else

This is the second time we have stayed at the Best Western Barclay in Port Alberni while travelling on a day trip on the Francis Barkley and we were not disappointed. The hotel staff are both professional and friendly in both the hotel and Stamps Café. We ate two suppers and two breakfasts in the cafe and the food was... More

Very pleased that I got an early check-in time since I arrived in town on the day of the wedding and was able to get ready before the ceremony. Room was very clean. Bathroom was a little small though..hard when another person is in there at the same time. Check-in and check out experience was fast and accurate. I would... More

The Best Western Plus at Port Alberni offered us a good great rate and we booked two nights in charge by internet (not directly on best western homepage). We decided to stay a night longer (Port Alberni is a good Location for local atractions and for a trip to Tofiono) and we got the same rate as we booked. The... More

Hotel was nice, restaurant was good (all the food we ordered for all our meals was good, with the exception of the jaeger schnitzel, it was oversalted, covered in oversalty gravy. Totally inedible. Do not recommend.) The room was nice and big! Some kind of a suite. We made the trek to use the pool (you have to go up... More

Really nice hotel with extremely helpful and friendly staff. Hotel is clean and functional but could do with updating decor. Location quite central for visiting Tofino, Parksville beaches and don't miss Cathedral Grove. Restaurant good had a great breakfast. We found hotel to be a cheaper alternative to staying in Tofino and could easily be used as a base or... More

Staff were cordial, made my business trip more pleasurable. Anytime I needed something they were there even in the middle of the night. Meals were really good and portions were appropriate for the price.

Enjoyed our stay. There were four of us travelling together. Staff put our rooms side by side and honoured our request for a renovated room. The hotel has lots of amenities. Nice pool area. Nice lounge. Very central.
