Great place to stay in Port Alberni. Close to downtown and local amenities. Excellent room and staff. Ideal for those attending the yearly High School Wrestling Tournament. Breakfast in café was okay but could have been hotter. The rib dinner in the sports bar was very good. Decent portion and very tender. Good menu variety.

Quick business trip to P. Alberni, so needed a convenient, comfortable place to stay and here fit the bill. Easy access, seemingly "central", and good amenities - restaurant/pub on-site and a liquor store attached, outdoor/seasonal pool, indoor hot tub and fitness centre, conference rooms with great staff support. All-in-all, an easy, unsurprising stay.

Overnight on business. Pleasing exterior well located. But not really near any restaurants. We chose to eat at the hotel, which was fine. Check in was a little challenging. I believe I was asked 4 times if I was a member of the Best Western club! But I got my room and everything was correct. Room was pleasantly appointed, clean... More

Comfortable, clean room & good restaurant for breakfast. They helped with our subsequent booking in Tofino. Restaurant was closed the evening we arrived for the staff Christmas Party, but they recommended another good place in walking distance.

We were happy to find this excellent hotel in Port Alberni. The room was spotless with all necessary amenities. We had a king size bed on the top floor at the end of the corridor which I would recommend. The staff could not have been more accommodating. The hotel also has a pleasant dining room. This is an excellent stop... More

We've stayed at this hotel 2 times with a 3rd stay expected soon. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. We've enjoyed dinners and breakfasts in the restaurant on both occasions. Food is very good with large portions. Don't be fooled about food quality even if the restaurant appears to be empty.

The staff were great - the room was excellent; king size bed, fridge and microwave. We have stayed here before to visit family. This was our best stay yet. The restaurant was closed for Christmas, so the hotel provided a complementary breakfast. Because we are elite members of the Best Western rewards program, we were able to upgrade our room... More

This is our second Christmas that we have stayed at the Barclay Hotel in Port Alberni. The room is a generous size and very clean. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming. The hotel is walking distance from shopping and good restaurants.
