It was okay
June 15, 2014

First off, the people at the front desk is super polite and helpful. I had already expected it to be an older hotel.. which is fine. However, there was a musty, dirty smell in the room. We tried to blast the aircon to get rid of it, which helped a little bit.. but not enough. We found an old battery... more

Hojo pa
June 06, 2014

My stay at the Howard Johnson was really good. The hotel property overall is very well kept. The room was clean and the bed extremely comfortable. A couple of concerns to address. The room comes with an older tube style tv, kinda dated but no big deal. In the bathroom, I noticed considerable dust in the fan and the soap... more

Rather old, not what you'd expect of a Howard Johnson
May 29, 2014

We had made our reservation over the internet and were amazed to find the front door locked and a note telling us to go to the liquor store next door for our keys. For this location May is still off season which was evident by the fact that there were only about two other cars in the lot.
The building... more

Sports Teams this is the place
May 21, 2014

It's a "sorry to use the term" slightly run down Howard Johnson. If you are a sports team this hotel would be good because you are only here to sleep. For a young family this would fit the lower budget but not to standards of normal expectations. Walls are very thin and noise really travels. I don't expect this hotel... more

Excellent value for money
May 16, 2014

As we drove in from Alberta, we knew we would be late reaching the hotel. The staff informed me of their timings and also made a back-up arrangement for check-in, in case we got delayed. That was quite a relief for me. We ultimately did end up reaching there on time.
When I started talking to them about our arrival... more

We ended up booking a room here for two nights over xmas. We did not make a reservation in advance as we had other arrangements which fell through last minute. There was a room available and we were given a great rate. Our host even gave us a portable fireplace to make the room warmer since we had chosen an... more

Rooms smell like mildew, no ventilation
November 12, 2013

Horrible mildew, no ventilation, lobby light full of webs and spiders. Only thing good was the staff. Way over priced for what you get. Worst hotel I have ever stayed at, and have travelled extensively. Would stay in a tent over this hotel, as even the shower in the bathroom was horrible. Beds are short and very soft, your feet... more

A good hotel in an awful area
October 03, 2013

I'll start off by saying if you're looking for something close to downtown and all the shops and restaurants, this is definitely not it. My boyfriend & I backpacked through the island, and with walking everywhere, we were disappointed with the Hojo's location in proximity to where all the action is. We had to cab downtown and back. That being... more

Not up to par
August 09, 2013

We chose this hotel because of the HoJo brand name, figuring it would be a quality hotel. We were disappointed as this particular hotel was rundown and likely an older hotel that has had the HoJo name attached to it. The continental breakfast was great, and even opened early per our request. The liquor store/pub attached to it is not... more

Adequate room, friendly staff
August 02, 2013

Room was perfectly fine, if not a little outdated. Clean bathroom with plenty of bath products available. Unfortunately it was absolutely stifling and opening the window and putting the creaky AC on did not help so we did not get much sleep, it was just too hot. (And not an overly hot day, just poor air circulation.) After we turned... more

Not Good
July 12, 2013

It is an older motel, there is a musty smell thru out the motel. The rooms were clean, but could use serious up dating. The air conditioner was very loud, and the direction it blew was at the head of the bed, terrible. Staff was good. Not worth the price, go elsewhere.

Needs upgrading
June 20, 2013

This hotel reminded me of a place I stayed at in Labrador.....the plywood floors bounce when you walk down the hall. There was no one to check me in when I arrives at the desk....8 pm - stood for 10 minutes. People who work there were very nice. Owners need to put some money in the workings of the place... more

Friendly staff doesn't make up for an old hotel
March 25, 2013

The staff were friendly. I expected better room quality for the rate paid though. The bed was very old and hard. The TV was old and there wasn't an option to rent a movie. The bathroom fixtures were old. The sink faucet leaked and there was no cold water pressure. The only option to get to room was stairs and... more

March 24, 2013

We were travelling with our sons hockey team and the hotel staff was more than accommodating - arranging an equipment room, working out team dinners at the hotel and changing the pub hours so that the parents could enjoy themselves as well! Excellent service all around.

Very poor
November 04, 2012

The basic structure of this hotel is fine, it looks like a hotel, but it has serious issues. Two issues to be exact. One is someone please clean it. The other is someone please fix the things that break down. The lady at the desk was very nice.

September 26, 2012

Staff was polite & informative, the breakfast was nothing compared to the HOJO in Nanaimo. The rooms were clean, but the air conditioner was noisy and there was no coffee pot. We found the hallways were extremely hot I can't imagine them in the summer time. We love the HOJO in Nanaimo but this one needs some work.

Fantastically Terrible
July 05, 2012

Scared you might get too good of a rest? Go to the HoJo Port Alberni! Walking in gives the immediate sense of foreboding - like you may suffocate from the poor air quality of a place that hasn't been renovated in decades. If you'd like to verify that the hotel hasn't, in fact, been renovated in decades, I dare you... more

September 23, 2011

Like other people who came to the region, I stayed here for 2 nights because it was considerably cheaper than staying on the coast while exploring Pacific Rim NP.
