We stayed overnight and wouldn't hesitate to book again when we're in Port Alberni. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable--as they have been at all Best Western hotels we've stayed at. Breakfast at the Stamp Cafe was hearty and reasonably priced. All staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed one night on our week trip on the Island. A great hotel that was both clean and modern. Small liquor store attached. Staff at check in were great. The place was full the night we rolled in so most definitely would recommend a reservation.

We spent one night at this BW hotel on our way from Tofino to Nanaimo. Overall we had a great experience, the rooms were big, clean, and comfortable (each of our rooms had 2 queen beds plus a sofa bed), and the staff were very professional and friendly, and helped us with all our requests.

We were thrilled with the service and cleanliness of this hotel. We were unable to stay in Tofino, and chose Port Alberni-Best Western. Very good choice..great meals and employees were very helpful-information about the area, Tofino, things to do and places to eat. Delightful

our room was very clean, the pool is beautiful, the restaurant was just average and a bit overpriced, the service was average as well. The pool is a great addition and the gym facilities are nice. Location is okay.

We stay at the Barclay several times a year as we frequent Sproat Lake in the summer and have business in Tofino. We sometimes plan our stays on short notice and, on all but one occasion over the last few years, they have been able to accommodate us.
