The staff here are really great and always going above and beyond to accommodate my needs, whether it's finding me a safe spot to secure my bike or storing my frozen food in their freezer so it doesnt defrost too early before my camping trip. I also enjoy that it's walking distance to some of the great breweries in Port Alberni and an easy bike ride to the the waterfront area!

Hotel's Favourite
Hotel was nice and clean and bedding was comfortable. Staff was very helpful. Most amenities closed due to covid, but this is the hotel I would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Port Alberni. It's on a busy road but we didn't notice any bothersome traffic noise.

We stayed there for 2 weeks. The staff was friendly - front, housekeeping and restaurant. The room is clean and had enough room for all our stuff. I had a hard time sleeping on their pillow because they don't stay flat, but my husband and son did not have that issue. There are 2 elevators - they're a bit on the slow side and sometimes the one wasn't working. We would definitely consider staying here again if we're back in this area.

Dear Parkit13, Let me start by thanking you for completing our Guest Survey regarding your recent stay at our property. Although you rated us very highly, thank you; I did notice that we have room for improvement to get the 10’s that we strive for. When I see surveys with scores in the fours I consider them opportunities for improvement. Yes, we strive for perfect tens and are always very interested in opportunities on how to improve our guest’s experience while staying with us. Is there something that we can do differently to change your perception of our property? Your feedback is very much appreciated and I can assure you that my staff and I use this information to do everything possible to create an enjoyable experience for each of our guests. It is our goal at the Best Western Plus Barclay Hotel and we take great pride to bring the level of this hotel above our competitors. My apologies about the elevator being slow but thank you for letting me know you would stay here again. Again, thank you for taking the time and for your business, it is very much appreciated!

With Best Western you never know as the brand includes a huge variety of hotels worldwide. This is why I am always a bit hesitant. However, with this one, no need to worry. We stayed in two different rooms, one with a king, one with a queen. Both really good. Great shower, in the bath, which I never understand, but my problem… large lobby, reasonable check in. There is is pub/ restaurant area which we did not use, but the pub looked like quite a lot was happening. The rooms have great beds, good airco and a coffee an d tea maker. Here is my request, why are there 10 coffee cups, but only one tea bag? You can easily change that. Wifi is free and works well, except at the surprisingly large pool area. The pool is at least 15 meters and deep too, lot of beds, but no shade. Large parking in front and walking distance, 10 min, to two of the best restaurants, Boomerangs and bare bones, see other reviews. 1,5 hour depending traffic to Tofino, and Uclelet which is a wonderful trip, but except for surfing anf whale and bear watching, not the place to be.

Reasonably priced, friendly, clean and comfortable hotel. There is an onsite restaurant and bar/grill, both of which overlook a lovely in season pool area. Staff are helpful and eager to please. There is ample parking and the hotel is centrally located. I have stayed in Port Alberni before, but this was the first time at the BW Barclay - it is the best place to stay and I will be back.

Went on a surf trip to Tofino and required a place to stay that was less expensive. This provided a budget friendly option about a 1.5 hour drive from Tofino. Great hotel for a minimal stay. Has basic in suite amenities and the staff are helpful and friendly. The town itself has nearby amenities by car and a few nearby restaurants. I would recommend!

We wanted to see Pacific Rim National Park and the Nanaimo, Campbell River and Chemainus areas during our BC trip. The Best Western Plus Barclay Hotel, Port Alberni offered us a quality location to use as a base in the central part of the island and the small ciy offered several attractions and amenities that helped to make our three day visit enjoyable. The friendly Best Western hotel staff gave excellent service. The hotel room was clean and the king bed very comfortable. The room's space, seating and bathroom were adequate. The hotel and the surrounding community were very quiet. The hotel's restaurant and lounge delivered great meals from the same kitchen. There is lots of free parking and a wine and liquor store attached to the building.
