This is a nice clean hotel with friendly staff. I have stayed here before and the staff has been great every time. Rooms are nice. Beds are comfy. Location is good and there is a variety of food options near by. I will return again.

Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The beds are extremely comfortable (had the best sleep I have in months). When I bought some stuff at the liquor store that is located there, I realized that I left my spouse's beer on the counter and they went through so much trouble of going back through all their past receipts just to try...

This was an unexpected nights stay as we were on our way to a Best Western in Tofino when our transmission hose broke on the road between Port Alberni and Tofino.

This is a Mill Town. It consistently has to accommodate Mill and Loggers. Consequently the standards take a beating. They have done very well to accommodate the most fastidious guest if she/he will just work with them!

When we return to the Alberni Valley to visit friends this hotel is our first choice. It is centrally located; the rooms are clean and comfortable; our request for a room away from elevators and dispensing machines has always been met; and the hotel and restaurant staff are friendly and helpful.

Perfect location for multiplex where tournament was being held. Very comfortable rooms. Fitness centre had lots of options and was not busy. Bar setting was right there, comfortable and great staff. I'd stay there again. The only thing missing is breakfast included, but they do have a restaurant on site, and plenty of funky cafes close by.

Helpful staff, quality amenities, clean and comfortable.
