“No worries”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

If you are looking for a spot to stay without the worry of location, food and staff, this is a great hotel to choose. The pub has some of the best wings on the island, and with the multi view TV's, watching your favorite sport is easy.

I was in Port alberni on a business trip and after a VERY foggy ferry ride and car ride I needed some food to cheer me up. So I went down to the sports bar to watch the hockey game and grab some supper. WELL, the soup was absolutely delicious, piping hot and full of seafood. With the roll and crackers it was almost a meal in itself!! Then I had the Thursday night steak sandwich special. Again superb $6.99 and what a deal. Garlic bread, cole slaw, great fries and a steak cooked just the way I liked it. Add to that a Canucks win and what more could you ask for?
The hotel room was what you normally get at a Best Western, clean, comfortable, great air conditioner/heating unit, modern and comfortable. Service was top notch and the room was not expensive

I stayed at this hotel for two nights while attending a conference held there. Although there were a large number of us arriving on the same day, the front desk staff were very welcoming and efficient, and there were no waits to check in. My fourth floor room was well equipped, clean and comfortable with a very good bed. The hotel was full and I was impressed with how quite the room was dispute the crowds. I didn't eat in the restaurant, but had all my meals in the banquet facility. The food was excellent with emphasis on local products, and the service was exceptionally friendly and efficient. This is not a new hotel, and some of the furnishings were a bit dated, but I found it to be very good value, comfortable, quite, and any shortcomings were more than made up for by the friendly and helpful staff. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Port Alberni and would definitely recommend the Barclay.

Called up the hotel for their corporate rate which beat the online rate by quite a bit. Located just south of the main city center, this 5 story hotel is quiet with very good quality beds, and strong showers. Wifi internet could be faster but overall a good stay. Onsite pub is available but we didn't use it, however breakfast in the restaurant was quite good and moderately priced. Fitness area was good, with a large hottub and sauna as well. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Top (5th) floor is recommended, corner room for quiet.
