Reviewed 12 July 2012

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 bag from their freezer. The motel was across from the river wher you could watch the locals netting salmon.

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.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are away from the road and quieter.

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 accomodating. It was very quiet in the evening.

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. The owners were friendly and helpful and the place had a welcoming feeling about it. It was quiet and convenient for town and the route out to Tofino and the West Coast. There were parking places for extra size vehicles or boats.

We stayed over at this location between Vancouver and Tofino, great little Motel find.
Very clean room, comfy bed, fridge, microwave, working wifi and coffee in room.
Handy to local and big box shopping if required.
Would definitely stay here again when in the area, would even extend my stay if king beds were offered or even if not.

We chose the Somass Motel once more on our trip down to Ucluelet, like we did 2 years ago. Again, we can say nothing bad about our stay.
We had one of the bigger, 2 bedroom, rooms with kitchen. Perfect for us and our two little girls (3 years and 9 months). The kids had enough space to run around, we were able to have proper dinner and were even able to watch some TV after bringing the kids to bed in their own room.
Unfortunately it was still too cold to use the pool. Maybe next time! :-)
