We came in after a long day's drive and were pleasantly greeted. Staff were very helpful for dinner ideas; room was clean and nice; secret garden was great place to sit and cool off. Air conditioning worked great and was definitely needed. Only complain was the outdoor pool was too cold to swim in and the motel was located right... More

We just stayed one night and found it clean and comfortable and good value for 4 of us. The receptionist, Sumi, was very friendly and helpful with information about restaurants and grocery stores. Our unit was quite close to the road but it wasn't noisy. The Wifi worked perfectly for us.

This was a rather humdrum experience but the room was okay and quite clean. It took quite a while for the heat to kick in. The staff here were quite helpful. It is near the water and quite a handy place to stay. Each room is like a little private cabin.

We stayed there for 2 days. I just loved the service there. A very clean place and a nice swimming pool. A great place to stay if you want to relax. The receptionist was very kind and the manager was very friendly and kind. They just made me feel welcome here and we had a great time here. If you... More

We stayed this Somass Motel & Rv from Sep.4 to 11. The room & all were clean and comfortable, and well equipped. The staff were very friendly and helpful. While we stayed there, we felt so happy just like our home, and enjoyed there. If you visit Port Alberni, I can recommend this Great Motel.

On both tripadvisor and hotels.com this motel was rated as clean and comfortable and so we thought we would book a night here as we passed through and explored Port Alberni. As it turns out, this place was not clean nor comfortable. To start things off on a negative note, we had booked for a queen sized bed and unfortunately... More

We have arrived very late. Person at the reception was very polite and helpful. We got a room for 5 and paid very reasonable price for it. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Very decent place to stay. Free Wi-Fi and parking. I can recommend it.

I have stayed here several times prior to embarking to Bamfield. While nothing fancy the rooms are spacious, clean, and well equipped. We had a two bedroom unit that had a sofa bed as well. Just fine for a short stay.

I was leery booking the Somass but pleasantly surprised. The owners have taken great care maintaining this older property. Weather prevented pool use but it looks great. Clean roooms. Plumbing needs a makeover though.

Randomly happened upon this motel and it far exceeded my expectations. Bed was super comfortable, nicest linens of our trip so far, renovated bathroom and cute old fashioned swimming pool. Owner lent us towels for the beach and there was a swell garden where we were able to plunk the baby in the shade and let him eat from all... More
