NEVER stay at A1 Alberni motel. A room was rented and was in the room for half an hour before realising the window in the bedroom was broken. There was a "pipe" under the bed and (I think) crack on the floor. Called the manager to let them know about the window and they were asked for a refund. Total... More

Stayed there on work trip. Room stunk and changed rooms twice before I found a room that didn't stink or had 'bugs' in it. Little to no upgrades and seems like the owner is milking the last out of this place. Not to mention the price for service and room was pitiful. I have stayed at better locations for a... More

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.
