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!

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Barkley Hotel in Port Alberni, British Columbia due to a passing of a wonderful friend. The staff were very helpful by locating the funeral home handling the arrangements as well as the church and cemetery. This might sound morbid but when in need and do not know the city well it was a... More

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. Great menu in the bar/lounge Listen up Ms Pringlefoot - if a review can be completed in less than two hundred words what is the point of aggravating the review participant with a two hundred word minimum. Perhaps you need to learn about the KISS principle - 'keep it short and simple'. Are... More

I did mention both instances to the front desk. The GM did come up to my room shortly after check in about the door (which I appreciated), however the... More

Wow, the hotel has upgraded nicely with refurbishing the rooms. Our king bed was excellent. Best sleep yet! Corner room facing the mountains was perfect. Opening window was nice for some fresh air. Hardly any street nice, pretty quiet place.
