Not a lot of people spend a lot of time in Port Alberni, unless of course you live or work there. If you're just passing through, this is an excellent place to spend a night or two. It's on the road to Tofino/Ucluelet, in town, and possibly the cleanest motel you'll spend time in. It has a pool and a... More

Arrived July 12, 2016 for an overnight stay during our Island road trip. We were greeted by the very friendly owner and shown to our motel room. It was cute on the outside, complete with flower pots, bench and stoop outside the door. Inside was an average size room with an renovated bathroom, which was very clean and nice. The... More

I had the pleasure of staying for a night at the Somass Motel before hiking the Della Falls trail in Strathcona Park. The rooms were basic, with fridges and small drip coffee machines, but very clean. The owner was kind enough to store our bag of shoes and work clothes for the duration of the hike...above and beyond.

I loved this place. The rooms are so clean. The rooms could use some updating. The bathroom fan didn't work really well. It would be nice to have an air conditioner in the bedroom. The air conditioner in the kitchen kept kitchen area cool but not the bedrooms. I found the pillows very uncomfortable I went and bought my own.... More

50 years ago our family stayed here while attending a family party in Port. We decided to try it again for 1 night because I had such good memories. Situated on River Road, just out of town on the way to Tofino, it doesn't look like much, and you could miss it. Our room was small, but lovely, completely updated... More

Somass Motel was very close to the marina where we managed to obtain a berth for our Grady White last weekend. The facility is very clean with A/C that works, is perfectly clean and also close to great resturants.

We have stayed at the Somass Motel a number of times, and have always found this motel to be very friendly and clean. There is a pool here, and also a nice shaded garden area to unwind and relax in. This motel is in a great location, and is very accommodating to the fishing enthusiasts who frequently stay here. The... More

The staff were extremely friendly and very accommodating. The customer service was superb, and they went out of their way to accommodate. Rooms were very clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay here a lot and would definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay in Port Alberni. The owners take great pride in maintaining this property as a nice place to stay. They have RV hookups, charming clean and bright rooms, and a very nice swimming pool open during the summer months. Highly recommended to anyone staying in Port.
