A few tidy, level, graveled spots. Ours had electric and water. A couple had dumps too. The rest of this place is small cabin motel rooms. Everything seems pretty well kept up. There is one bathroom and shower, which means if someone is showering you aren’t going to be able to use the bathroom. The shower is small and the hot water is not abundant but it’s adequate. small outdoor pool that looked clean. Staff was friendly.

Had a quick stopover in Port Alberni and picked the Somass. Great choice! Very clean and bright room with many mirrors so I could get ready while hubby was in the shower. Liked the full sized kitchen with hot plate, would have been fun if we had been staying longer, it was a bit cold in the bathroom when we first arrived but warmed up after turning the heat on, might have been something wrong with the register in our room, not a huge deal as we were on and out. The bed was super comfortable omg didn't want to get up! Very nice for an older motel, will keep in mind if we come back this way in the summer. :)

So, the wife and I are heading back to Tofino again for my birthday week this year. This seems to be the only time I get around to posting reviews so here does a week of writing! This Motel was recently purchased by a very nice family. We were planning on arriving at 10:30pm but my navigator (also know as the wife) fell asleep and I missed a turn off at Coombs and took and 30 KM detour. The man at the desk was very pleasant and helpful and checked me in. The room has two doubles and the beds were comfy - got a good nights sleep! Small TV mind you - and the wife tricked me into watching a horrible Hallmark movie... Bathroom was decent - but don’t put white body lotion next to the shampoo, cause I’m gonna think it’s conditioner and use it that way! Also - when you shower in the morning and think you might hear knocking on the door - GO AND CHECK! Cause it might be your wife that is locked out for 20 minutes and needs to use the bathroom.... She might be mad at me. Also - the place is pet friendly. But it might be certain rooms - shhhhhhh ...our Chihuahuas are therapy dogs anyways... There is a pool as well. I’m sure it’s wet and all that. Just happy the wife didn’t throw me in it when she locked herself out and blamed me for that ...I mean of course it was my fault. What was I thinking. Good place - good price - nice staff. Recommend! Now onto Tofino!

Clean motel with a nice pool. The rooms are a bit dated and the bed a bit lumpy but is very clean and very quiet despite being on a main road. The staff are helpful and did their best to make the stay enjoyable. Would stay here again
