Your pet must be registered with the office in a designated pet friendly room.  There is a nominal $10 per night pet charge.  Unregistered pets will be charged at $ 25 per pet.

Some of our human guests have allergies and require pet free rooms. To ensure their health safety, owners with pets in “no pet” rooms will be charged a MINIMUM cleaning fee of $ 100.

Pets must be leashed at all times when in public areas of the establishment and kenneled if left unattended in your room.  Any dogs that become stressed when left alone in a strange environment and are prone to barking are not to be left unattended.

We also have a supply of Pet Blankets and cloths for cleaning off any muddy paws.

Customer Service Guarantee

We pride ourselves on our personal service both at our Motel and assisting whenever possible in making your stay in Pacific Rim’s Alberni Valley area more enjoyable.  Our office stocks a large variety of local and regional information and we are always happy to help you plan your stay with us.  If there is anything we can do to make your travels in our region more enjoyable please let us know.

While it has never been our plan or policy to double book sometimes plans go awry and mistakes do happen.  If this does occur we make every effort to make amends.  We want your business and we want you to return and stay with us in the future.

Although we are unable to guarantee a specific room request we do guarantee that we will have the room type you reserved at the price you reserved.  If, for some unforeseen circumstance, the room you reserved is not available we will upgrade you to a larger room for the same price. If we have no rooms left we will make arrangements for your accommodation at an equal or better accommodation property at no increased cost to yourself. We pay any difference.
