The Paddler's Inn was my favourite place to stay during a recent trip to BC. Its great location smack-dab in the centre of Tofino town-site and it's beautiful view of the harbour from both the room and the main kitchen area. Despite being the oldest inn in Tofino, it is very well maintained. It is cozy and quaint. The squeaky... More

We just returned home from two nights in Tofino. The Paddlers Inn was perfect for our group of eight (two families of four). We rented all of the rooms although we could have gotten away with less we wanted the place to ourselves. All the rooms have different combinations of sleeping arrangements. The beds are futons and are really comfortable.... More

First of all the room looks nothing like this picture provided. But the rooms are clean. The windows need some cleaning so you could enjoy the beautiful view. Just amazing to wake up with such a grand view. The staff was great!

The Paddlers Inn is a very nice B&B, the rooms are nicely decorated, the location in Tofino is great. The view from the room was great and it is nice to get up with this view. There are two rooms with the view. I would advise booking one of these if available unless you are sensible to noise the water... More

I'll start this review by saying that I am not a difficult person to please and my trip types tend towards basic accomodations. That said, I found the Paddlers Inn to fit my requirements: 1. Clean room: no problem with the room. It was clean, well-maintained and secure. 2. Basic breakfast: Breakfast is a serve-yourself affair. They provide plain cereal,... More

We have been coming here for several years always to be met with the utmost in hospitality. The owners are open, honest, generous people who truly love the area they have spent most of their lives homesteading. We could not have had a better time. The rooms are simple but well-provided and the setting simply stunning. So much to do,... More

My daughter and I had a two night stay along with a 4 hour kayak tour. We found the Paddler's Inn to be very clean and comfortable. Being the end of the season the Inn was quiet and only half full. We certainly had no problem with shared facilities. We enjoyed our dinner and bottle of wine on the deck... More

I don't really want to tell anyone about this because I want it to be available when we want to go again ;) .. However, I feel this place earns a recommendation for being simple, comfortable, clean, very clean, (did I say clean?!!), quiet (end of September), reasonable price and very convenient location. This is the first time we have... More

Before we came here we were a little worried after reading some of the other reviews about Paddlers Inn. However we really enjoyed our stay here. The location is great, and it's worth paying a little extra for a room with a water view. The set up is more like a hostel rather than a b&b, with shared facilities. Sharing... More

We stayed for six nights and explored beautiful Tofino and surrounds by foot and bike. This is a great place to stay if you're looking for a clean and comfortable base for lots of outings and adventures. The bathrooms are shared and so is the dining area/kitchen. Don't let this put you off - everything is well supplied and spotless,... More
