Clean and comfortable with everything we needed; our hosts were friendly and helpful and always around. We enjoyed our two night stay and were surprised at how quiet it was although it was on a road. Lots of advice about restaurants etc

We stayed at the Somass Motel in May of 2013. Assigned the task of finding a reasonably priced place to stay before and after our trip down Barkley Sound to Bamfield on the working boat, HMS Francis Barkley, I did my internet research and was impressed with all of the positive feedback. Having stayed at motels a few times and...

This is truly a pleasent surprize finding such a well stocked and well cared for motel. It is a smaller and older motel but has been updated. We did not have a reservation and were greeted by a very friendly gentleman. As we had our little dog of about 10lbs with us it nice to find a smaller. No corparate...

We found this hotel by chance, as due to weather problems we arrived a day early for the cottage we had booked from Internet. Had we known, we would have stayed there for the whole time we had intended to stay in Port Alberni. This is such a nice and clean place, with much care for details like flowers and...

We came to port Alberni for a get a way and I couldn't be happier with our motel choice. So affordable...so quaint, plus the mattress was extremely comfortable. I followed the guest directory the whole time on where to go and what to see. Everything in it was worth it. Not a single bad experience and the owners were extremely...

My wife and I have stopped overnight here three times now. It is always a pleasure. It is immediately obvious that the couple that own and operate this motel do their most to insure the best stay for their guests. If you could sum it up in one word it would be “charming”.

When returning from Tofino we noticed how clean and tidy the gardens and buildings looked and decided to see if a room was available and found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. We were pleasantly surprised when seeing the room almost clinically Clean! Would highly recommend to all.

I had booked this motel just the day before my stay, and MAN, was I happy that I chose this one! First of all, the room was very nice and spacious with a well appointed bathroom with tub. Second, it was within walking distance of the "Western" half of Port Alberni's city (the history about that "East and West" the...

I was up in Port Alberni with our Dragon Boat Team (Team Phoenix from Victoria), and we stayed at the Somass Motel for the second year. WE LOVED IT!!
