Shower head was too low even for a short 5'6" person, I had to duck. Walls were and tiles were falling apart and overall condition was run down. Painted tiles in bathroom were peeling and starting to mould. Beds and pillows were worn out and way too soft I do not recommend this hotel.

On the first room the toilet never stopped running. We moved into another room same thing. We did not move again was not worth while. The fan in 2 rooms did not work in the bathroom and also the safe in 2 rooms did not work also. The bed sheet had to be changed because of a big stain on... More

This hotel is tired and dingy. WiFi is very poor in the rooms, the elevator was out of order when we were there. We only booked it because we were overnighting on a long drive. I would definitely consider a different property even if more costly the next time I needed to overnight in Port Alberni.

Not "as advertised". ..3 floors, an elevator with a dusty "out of order sign", safes locked non openable, dirty, old worn out blankets & towels, is this really a HoJo?

We traveled to the island with absolutely no plan, and no places booked to stay. Luckily there was a room available in this HoJo, and it is motel-style which we much prefer. There were some noisy people above us but that is expected at hotels. Loved the fact there was a good size mini fridge and microwave, and the outdoor... More

Good Day: Unfortunately I believe you have the wrong hotel. We are not motel style and we do not have a pool or a continental breakfast. Maybe it was the Howard Johnson in Nanaimo or possibly in Victoria. Anyway when you are in Port Alberni please come and see us. Thank you Lynn More
