Front desk staff were very kind and welcoming, the restaurant food was very good. I was here because of a delicate family matter and I feel like the front desk went out of their way to be compassionate and caring, thank you!

Very nice mid-range hotel. Stayed in a queen room on the fourth floor. Room, hallways, lobby and restaurant were all very clean and well kept. Breakfast was good; staff was very friendly; off season price was very reasonable - all in all a much better hotel than I expected.

Spent two nights here while on a course. Hotel was clean (really important for me), common areas, room, elevators, etc. All spotless. Staff were very nice and helpful. Bed was comfortable, wifi was quick. I will stay here again if in town. See my other reviews for Port Alberni

It's a bit loud. Room was clean, staff was very pleasant. Bathroom was decent. Overall pretty good nothing to complain about. We basically just slept and moved on. We didn't use the pool or restaurant. Lots of parking.

We have stayed in many hotels over the years and this was by far one of the best. The staff couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were immaculate everyday. The registration desk was more than accommadating. We will definitly stay there when we return to Port Alberni, BC.

Best hotel in Port Alberni, it is central, making it easy for walking, restaurants, stop off point, and travel point. Hospital visits would be one of the few things far away. Rooms, service and all other parts of the hotel are definitely Best Western. So can't go wrong. Only short coming is no breakfast with room, you need to either...

We had expected this hotel in Port Alberni to be merely okay, but found it to be clean, comfortable, well-equipped and well-staffed. The reception staff were professional and politely friendly. The room was spacious and comfortable. The restaurant was cheerful and clean. We would definitely recommend it whenever possible.
