Spacious room, clean and decent place to stay for a couple of nights. Definitely not brand new, but friendly staff that took care of us. We were a party of 5 and got anything extra that we needed. Nice location and good view and very affordable.

Old nasty furnitue. Curtains were falling off broken curtain fixture. No mattress covers. Very old bedspread..yech. Ruined old mirror in bathroom. Toilet filthy under the rim. Ice only available at the corner store down the street. This place desperately needs an update! Next time we'll go elsewhere.

This is one of the worse motels I have ever stayed at. I had to clean the bathroom. The mould was horrid. To many items on one electrical circuit. We plugged the kettle and the coffee maker in at the same time it blew a fuse. No gfi plugs in the kitchen right next to the sinks. Fire hazard for... More

One of the cheaper places in Port Alberni, and the rooms are not all that bad. Watch out that management does not decide to short-change maid service if you stay more than one night. When questioned, management said that the amount of housekeeping was related to how much the customer paid for the room. If you want full service, insist... More

We stayed here the night before and after a cruise with Lady Rose Marine Services. It is a reasonably clean and quiet motel with a reasonable price. We had a room with a kitchenette where we could prepare breakfast and dinner. The place is showing its age, but it is reasonably well maintained. Towels are ample as is the hot... More

Reasonable to just sleep. Bathroom was clean, but the room itself could have been cleaner, very dusty. Tv wasn't working, window couldn't open so no fresh air in the room. Very friendly staff though and right on the road so very easy to stop and continue your travels. A lot of different shops closeby which is a plus.

We were in Port Alberni on our way to the ferry to Vancouver and onwards towards Merritt/Golden/Banff. It was a nice place, easy to find, and with a decent price. Nothing exceptional about it, neither on the good nor on the bad side.

Amenities, public transport and shops nearby. Staff was kind and helpful. Perfect if you are on a budget and prefer to cook your meals. Plenty of towels, utensils, tea, Pantene shampoo and soap hehe. The WiFi is weak though. Carpets and floors need a good clean.
