This recently redecorated hotel is at a major intersection in Port Alberni. It is a short drive to either town centre and to the major employer - the pulp mill. Rooms are spacious and have the added bonus of a window that opens for fresh air, rather than living in air conditioning. It has that too, a unit under the... More

It has pros and cons. It's clean which is a big plus. It's not newly updated but has been at one point in time so it's not all old. Really pay attention to the rooms. Some of them are very small. We upgraded to the queen suite which is quite nice. Has a little living area but our previous room... More

Room was large and clean. Pool looked fantastic and inviting just no time to use it. Great directions to local attractions. Tried to catch the bears feeding on the salmon at low tide from the boardwalk but possibly to hot even for them. Look forward to catching them next time. we had dinner at a Mexican restaurant at the Quay... More

Stayed here one night while my son was at a hockey camp. The hotel was clean and quiet. The staff were helpful and friendly. Definitely the best hotel in Port Alberni and the only place I will stay given the proximity to the rink

We love Best Western Barclay! Clean well appointed rooms, comfy beds, flat screen tv's and an awesome outdoor pool. Six of us stayed there for the 3rd consecutive year for Thunder in the Valley and it's where we will stay next year too! The staff is awesome and very accommodating!! Highly recommend staying here!!

Requested 2 queen bed and rollaway bed. Was charged $10 for rollaway bed (typical soft mattress) - hotels like marriot and marriot courtyard provided complimentary rollaway with full mattress. This is a nice hotel to stay prior to visiting ucculet/tofino (where the accommodation rates are insane).

This hotel completely over exceeded our expectations! The appearance was very clean from the outside, to the lobby, to our room! The staff were very helpful and friendly. We will be making this our regular hotel in Port Alberni :)

We had a great stay at the Barclay Hotel. The room we were in looked like it had been updated and was in very good shape. The bathroom was also very clean and in good order. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. The room had night shades and kept the room very dark so we could sleep well.... More

Rooms here are nice and clean, Spacious for price and well laid out for families. I also believe it's quite annoying that my review has to be 200 characters or more. People have beter things to do than advertise for tripadvisor....

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.
