I stayed here for 4 nights a week for 8 weeks while on business. The staff is courteous, friendly and efficient. They will go out of their way to make sure you are happy. WiFi access is very important to me when on the road. When I had an issue with accessing WiFi in a different room, the owner, Peter,...

Visited for one night on the way to Tofino. The rooms are clean and well equipped. There is a nice sports bar, and a cafe. The pool is small, and the gym is old, but with an effort, you can do a nice workout. A big plus is the sauna and whirlpool... Very good experience indeed.

I received 2 acknowledgements of our booking and a thoughtful "welcome note" after we checked in (they may have been computer generated but still someone took the time). Very helpful checkin staff with excellent advice on where to eat in Port Alberni (our first visit). Beautifully clean property and a very welcome feel to the place

Beds are terrible. No coffee or tea available on check in. Signing for towels is old school. Miss Best Western free breakfast although you do get 20% off in the restaurant. People were friendly although front line staff were a little harried. Close to or in an industrial area.

The rooms were excellent. I have stayed here before and would return again. Amenities are all very close and the staff are great. Coffee pot did not work in my room and when I informed them about it they fixed or replaced it in under 20 minutes. In room fridge is always nice and the rooms are always quiet.
