We needed a place to stay in Port Alberni due to our fishing charter and other excursion. We chose here because of the reviews given on Trip Advisor and are we ever happy we did! The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. The people whom run the hotel are very accommodating and so friendly :) You can smell the flowers...

A great place to stop on your way to/from the West Coast of the Island. Have driven past the Somass Motel for many many years so when we needed a place to stay in Port Alberni on this trip to the West Coast I was wondering about the great Trip Advisor reviews. It really is an excellent motel - friendly...

It's complicated, but we need room for two RVs and a room for another couple. No problem for the folks at Somass. By the time we arrived all arrangements were in place and the visit went seamlessly. The room was clean and well appointed. The campground, while a little tight for larger Rv's, served our purpose just fine. We've stayed...

Our ultimate destination was the Broken Group for the Canada day long weekend. We were taking the Frances Barkley into the park, which departs from Port Alberni. We had done this before, so we were well versed with the 7:00 am arrival required and knew it would be easier to find a place to stay in Port Alberni than to...

Stayed there just one night this May. Booking over the phone took 5 minutes. A very curtious host. TV, coffee maker, microwave in the room. Internet was available at the reception. Excellent price vs quality.

We were there for 1 night. The room was large, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was more than adequate. The owner was helpful and the only criticism was getting ice. There was no machi8ne and we ended up getting through the office when a couple of handfulls of ice were placed in a plastic bag from a large...

We stayed for Softball Provincials July 5th – 8th, the team had 9 rooms, great choice of rooms, clean and tidy rooms, excellent value for money, very friendly helpful staff. Nice pool and basketball area for kids to play. Great outdoor space, gardens, patio tables with umbrellas. We all had a great time and would highly recommend.

Port Alberni is a good place to stay if you are exploring this part of the island and the Pacific Rim National Park. This motel is also within walking distance of the marina. We had one of the back motel units. I found the room to be clean but somewhat crowded and the beds average. The owner was friendly and...

we stayed here for two nights and would stay again if in the area. It was very comfortable and had the best appointed kitchen we have encountered so far on our stay.
