An older motel, but very well maintained. We had the familly unit which has a well equipped kitchen, great to make simple meals. Very clean overall, spotless bathroom, great shower, comfortable bed. We have stayed here a few times over the last ten years, and will again if in the area.

Our family went to Port Alberni and stayed at this motel & Rv in summer time. Fantastic views and the family-friendly staff made us just like home. The room was very clean and comfortable, with good bed linens and towels. Everything was perfect as we needed, clean and comfortable, - WiFi, internet and a suitably equipped kitchenette. The swimming pool... More

We stayed overnight before doing a day trip on the France Barkley. Motel is older but very clean and very comfy beds. The room configuration was a bit strange (walk through 1st bedroom where queen bed is aginst the wall to get to 2nd bedroom) but the web site warns of this. This was fine for one night but wouldnt...

My husband, our two dogs and I went boating on Sproat Lake for 3 days and choose to spend the nights at this motel. Upon arriving, the owners made sure we had a place to park our truck and boat. Our room was very close to highway which we thought would be noisy but it wasn't bad at all. The... More

Wifi was reasonably fast and reliable. Good wall AC unit. Nice tv and cable package. I really can't find anything negative with the exception of if... More

We have stayed at this motel for the past 4 years. Each of the first 3 years things went very well. Our room was made up and cleaned each day including fresh coffee and mints. This year was different. There are new owners of the hotel, even though they are very nice and courteous there housekeeping ideas are different then... More

Just out of town to keep things nice and quiet, but not too far that a short walk along the river won't do you any harm either. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful and made us most welcome. The rooms are neat, tidy and clearly well kept and the price was right.

The hotel owner / managers are such nice people, they really helped me sort out a problem I had with my car while I was kayaking in the Broken Islands near to Port Alberni. They went far beyond the call of duty and I can't say enough good words about them! The rooms are very clearn etc. too. You are... More

I agree with most reviews on Trip Advisor with this motel. Clean, full kitchen with everything that you need, comfy beds and very nice owners. We didn't swim in the pool however it looked clean and inviting. The owners are 4 months new to the business and doing well!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The property was nice for both adults and kids as it has a basketball hoop and outdoor pool. We liked the idea of having the outside picnic tables with umbrellas right outside the cabins. Unlike a hotel where you might be lucky with a balcony you were able to sit outside in the nice... More
