With our truck loaded for four days watching storms in Tofino, the road collapsed stopping us from getting to the resort. At the Best Western Hotel in Port Alberni, the reduced winter staff hustled to get us and other stranded travellers rooms for the night - families with teens to grandparents like us, work crews, local area families unable to get home. They did an excellent job.
With only a food truck quickly brought in to cover the kitchen renovation, we were all fed through the pub. And the beer was good too.
We had two rooms with two doubles in each - enough beds and with the table and chairs, places for the teens to occupy themselves. Breakfast in the morning had both hot items (scrambled eggs, bacon and French toast) and lots of muffins, toast, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc.
Though our trip to Long Beach had to be abandoned when the road had to remain closed, we had a great experience at the hotel. less

Thank you for sharing your experience during your stay with us in this TripAdvisor review. The road collapse caused a lot of challenges to many travelers and we were happy to be able to accommodate them when they were stuck. We had been finishing our kitchen renovation so we were using a food truck to provide meals for our guests. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
