We stayed over at this location between Vancouver and Tofino, great little Motel find. Very clean room, comfy bed, fridge, microwave, working wifi and coffee in room. Handy to local and big box shopping if required. Would definitely stay here again when in the area, would even extend my stay if king beds were offered or even if not.

We chose the Somass Motel once more on our trip down to Ucluelet, like we did 2 years ago. Again, we can say nothing bad about our stay. We had one of the bigger, 2 bedroom, rooms with kitchen. Perfect for us and our two little girls (3 years and 9 months). The kids had enough space to run around,...

What a great "home away from home." We stayed a week and we would go again! We mostly ate at our place because it was so easy to do. The grounds are very pretty and the staff/owners are very nice and friendly!

Great little motel. Right on the highway to the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Pet friendly and all. Perfect place to break up the trip from the ferry to the island and travel to the West Coast.

My parents who are in their late 80's stayed in this motel for 4 nights in September...they had a suite with queen bed, full kitchen. The room was lovely, they said the bed was great, and they loved the place.

Spent 3 nights at this motel and we enjoyed our stay. the room was big enough, and it was very clean. The owners are very nice. Nice big pool and we had a little sitting area next to our room. Very well priced! If ever i return to Port Alberni i will surely stay there again!

The room has some special amenities that make a traveler feel really welcomed. Five pillows on the bed! I didn't have to open drawers and look through closets... A refrigerator actually meant for guest use. A make-up remover cloth (not that I wear make-up but that was special!) There is plenty of light and accessible plugs. A table that can...

The Somass Motel & RV is a great place to stay! Everything here is immaculate: very attractive cottage-style rooms/suites, and RV area, with flowers everywhere, some outdoor space to enjoy and an inviting outdoor pool. And all at reasonable rates. But what makes the Somass Motel very special is the excellent customer service. This service was very evident even before...

My husband and I went up to Port Alberni with my cousin and his wife to fish for salmon and halibut. Enjoyed the motel very much. Nice rooms with kitchen, clean, and very friendly owners and staff. They accommodated every request we had. Our two bedroom unit had the bedrooms attached with the back bedroom having to walk through the...
