“This place is a nightmare in every aspect”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2011

When i booked my room here i assumed that it was a larger size suite going by the description i got from the man i spoke to on the phone. It in fact was very small. The beds and pillows where super uncomfortable and they had a musty overly used smell so gross.... The bathroom was so dirty and the small fridge we got didnt even work. Nether did the tv remote... We were unable to sleep due to a party going on right above us and i must mention the water running constently. When the party faded around 4am the ongoing traffic took its place big rigs just flying by . A Nightmare trust me do not waste your money here.

len88, Manager at Tyee Village Motel, responded to this review, April 18, 2011
I sincerly regret this customer was obviouly not happy with our motel. We do make every effort to present ourselves acuratly over the phone our suites are not large but do accomodate up to 6 people with 2 queen beds in the bedroom and a double hidebed in the living room. The firdges in our non kitchen units are bar size not full size, most customers for short stays appreciate having them along with the microwave. The beds, bed skirts and bed spreads were all replaced in 2010 and we often recieve complements on how comfortable they are on an almost daily basis we recieve complements on our room cleanliness. If you are being annoyed at any time we live on site and can be reached by phone 24 hrs. a day. We do put a stop to any late (after 11 p.m.) parties or noisey activitiy. If this is the person I believe it is there was a very unfortunate party ,when we became aware we immediatly called the police and they were very prompt and helpful in removing the quests permantly. It is unfortunate that some people lose control but is impossible to always to weed them out ahead of time we do our best.

This great little find in Port Alberni provided my family and wedding quests with clean, comfortable, affordable apartment style rooms with full kitchen and separate bedrooms. They had to continually deal with our changing plans of arrivals, number of people, smoking and non-smoking wedding quests and they did so with courtesy and smiles. Their housekeeping staff were so supportive. One even mended my daughter's outfit from her brother's wedding. Thank you for making both my son and daughters wedding's memorable for all of us.

We had one of our best trips ever! The owners accomodated our family of 8 with very reasonable rates but that was only the start. They gave the best vacation advice we received from anyone on the Island and we had a wonderful time with our childten aged 4-16. The location is central to everything and the rooms are clean (don't let the outside look fool you)

The beds were a little hard, but the room was clean and a great price. There are a few motels along the strip in Port Alberni and this one was the best value. And the owner is a decent guy too...........which has to count for something.
