This hotel has been kept up nicely. The rooms are kept well with good furniture (including comfy bed and hide-a-bed) and bedding. The pool is outdoors and was clean and had lots of seating. The only downside was the old heating unit in the room. We turned it down as low as it would go (60 F) and it never... More

Nice room, great linens on the beds. Has all amenities- lounge, restaurant, etc. Both meals we had were disappointing (breakfast, evening snack). Would not eat there again, but would stay. Easy to find, centrally located A bit pricey, but not too many other choices Noisey, but necessary, air conditioner in room.

I stay only stay at The BWB when I work in Port. It's close to all amenities, clean and well priced. I tend to eat out so I havent dined at the hotel restaurant much, but it seems fine. Oh and the cable(TV) package is good.

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.
