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.

We stayed here after a failure in trying to find a campsite. We were looking for a cheap option and managed to get the family room (number 3) at a good price. The room was clean but did smell a bit musty. We went over to the shop to get dinner to cook in our kitchen. Only problem was the... More

we got the LAST hotel room in Tofino at the Schooner Motel. the staff was great, the rooms were clean. I highly recommend if you just need a place to sleep. The decor was a bit dated, but when you're in "hippie country", does it really matter?

We stayed at the Schooner July 30, 31, Aug 1 2013. We were well aware of some of the negative tripadvisor reviews. Booking a room by phone was easy. The owners and staff were extremely pleasant and efficient on the phone, and in person onsite. Adequate parking on the property. Our room was $150/night plus taxes. We had room #1... More

We decided 5 days prior that we wanted to come back to Tofino. Our usual motel was booked, so we tried for the Schooner and were given two choices of rooms. We wanted the lower floor and had room #1. Basic, the decor a bit dated, but it suited us just fine. The location was even better than our usual... More

$293.00 for a room that was so musty we had to leave the window open and put up with being too cold. It was not by chance that this place was the only accommodation that was not booked in town. I literally felt like the stairs were going to collapse as I was making my way to the second floor... More

Ah Tofino! A place to empty even the tightest of wallets. This was the last of the mid week rooms at almost $200. At best a closet with 2 beds. Thin towels, sheets, coffee and walls. If you have to see Tofino and have to stay over night this may be one of the bests bargains in town. Right downtown... More

Had a good view from the room. Was clean but boiler in bathroom. Desk girl does an average job of selling rooms. Owner is very enthusiastic and helpful. Price was a little high end for what you get. Eating place down the road was within walking distance. It was really good breakfast.
