Right across boat launch/parking ( $15.5 inclduing day parking ) and I can even park my 16ft boat inside the motel - couldn't do it other hotels or motels. Clean cottage style rooms and frieldnly people were bonus. And, the pool....

We were very impressed! It is an older motel and priced as such, but it is well-maintained, clean and welcoming. Lovely place to stay, friendly people. Short walk to several restaurants and the river.

We came in after a long day's drive and were pleasantly greeted. Staff were very helpful for dinner ideas; room was clean and nice; secret garden was great place to sit and cool off. Air conditioning worked great and was definitely needed. Only complain was the outdoor pool was too cold to swim in and the motel was located right... More

We just stayed one night and found it clean and comfortable and good value for 4 of us. The receptionist, Sumi, was very friendly and helpful with information about restaurants and grocery stores. Our unit was quite close to the road but it wasn't noisy. The Wifi worked perfectly for us.

This was a rather humdrum experience but the room was okay and quite clean. It took quite a while for the heat to kick in. The staff here were quite helpful. It is near the water and quite a handy place to stay. Each room is like a little private cabin.

We stayed this Somass Motel & Rv from Sep.4 to 11. The room & all were clean and comfortable, and well equipped. The staff were very friendly and helpful. While we stayed there, we felt so happy just like our home, and enjoyed there. If you visit Port Alberni, I can recommend this Great Motel.

On both tripadvisor and hotels.com this motel was rated as clean and comfortable and so we thought we would book a night here as we passed through and explored Port Alberni. As it turns out, this place was not clean nor comfortable. To start things off on a negative note, we had booked for a queen sized bed and unfortunately... More

We have arrived very late. Person at the reception was very polite and helpful. We got a room for 5 and paid very reasonable price for it. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Very decent place to stay. Free Wi-Fi and parking. I can recommend it.

I have stayed here several times prior to embarking to Bamfield. While nothing fancy the rooms are spacious, clean, and well equipped. We had a two bedroom unit that had a sofa bed as well. Just fine for a short stay.
