Good hotel centrally located. Had to ask for more coffee in the restaurant, but the room was good, the bed Ok, the window could open (a real plus) and the shampoo and soap good. I appreciated the good WIFI.

However I do have one complaint and that's the food. I recommend eating else where. I...

Have stayed here now 3 times over the years and it is by far the best place to stay in Port Alberni. Very central to everything including the ice arena. We took advantage of the 20% off breakfast coupon given to us at check in. The food and service were excellent. Wouldn't stray anywhere else

Decent hotel, has cold beer and wine attached. Sports bar had excellent food and service. Walls are thin and when drunk fools come back at 4am, it's easy to be woken up. Room itself is nicely appointed but the hotel itself is starting to look a bit dated

Front desk staff were very kind and welcoming, the restaurant food was very good. I was here because of a delicate family matter and I feel like the front desk went out of their way to be compassionate and caring, thank you!
