Previous reviews are spot on and during a 3 week tour of Alberta / BC this was the only place where we didn't get a warm and friendly welcome. Instead the receptionist was completely indifferent and simply asked us to read a list of hotel rules then handed the key across. The room itself was very basic with a strong... More

This motel is a DUMP. I am currently sitting in room 3A, quietly regretting my pre-payment of $90 CAD to the Asian fellow (very rude) that was in the office. About the room: as noted by others, the room is musty and freezing cold. Heat is supplied by two baseboard heaters stacked on each other, and an electric 'fireplace' heater... More

Pros: good location, fireplace in room, and wifi. Cons: Dirtiness of sheets and bathroom (I am a somewhat clean freak, but still, it was noticable). Lack of friendliness at front desk (not asking for much, just smile a bit). Thin walls (hear people talk when trying to sleep early).

Great location right in the heart of Tofino but very overpriced. Everything was extra. If you use two beds it's extra, towels were extra, laundry etc. The room was pretty clean but it wasn't much for the price. Two queen beds, a chair, mini fridge and bathroom for over $200 night CAD. Plus the front desk people were not very... More

Looked quaint on the outside. One room left "no view". Along with no adequate shade for the sliding glass door and the locks do not work. Had 2 double beds in the room but was told would charge "20 more" if used both beds. Makes you wonder which one was cleaned last. But the icing on the cake was the... More

Motel is centrally situated in Tofino and has a good external appearance. Stayed night of 19th Aug 2014. Double room booking. All rooms contain two queen sized beds. Beds had mattresses sealed inside a plastic casing - most unpleasant to sleep on. Exterior sliding glass door was covered by vertical slatted blind. Blind broken - missing a draw cord, and... More

I booked to stay at this motel through Booking.com but unfortunately our plans changed and I cancelled the room 13 days prior to our booking. No where on Booking.com was I advised at the time of booking or cancellation that the cancellation must be done within 14 days to avoid a charge. I called the Motel and they said not... More

We stayed at Schooners Motel for two nights in june 2014 and had a great time. We had one double room and a apartment with fully equipped kitchen. The rooms even have a couple chairs and a table on the porch so you can enjoy the fabulous view and the sunset over the fjord and the mountains. This is not... More

Located downtown close to everything (grocery store is right across the street). Good view out the front windows, at least from the second-floor rooms / balcony (it was cloudy and we left before sunrise, but the view would have been nice during the daytime). Fridge is small, no microwave, but the fireplace and modern TV enhance the decor.
