Five of us shared the two bedroom suite and will happily return next year if we could score these off season rates again! High quality beds and quality cookware in the fully stocked kitchen. There was also a hot tub and gym, group lounge to chill in and a great beach to stroll and watch the surfers. We are in... More

Had booked one night just before Christmas, they had a special discount on. Problem was it was for a 2 night stay. Spoke with receptionist & he waived that condition. Our daughter & grandson were here from Colorado & our grandson had never seen the ocean closeup. He had a ball, running in & out of the waves. We rented... More

When one hears Tofino, they think of the Wikanninish Inn. The Inn was almost $300/night, so I started to look at other options for our end of December jaunt. I wanted an ocean view, but did not want to break the bank to pay for it. Comox Bay Beach Resort, which is perpendicular to the ocean, was offering one bedroom... More

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it. However, they seem to run a bit of a scam in terms of booking. On their website they state that the rate for storm season is $170 a night. However, when we called they said it was $245 a night for late January!! Every single travel site on the internet states $170... More

Dear Sheena742, I am very concerned about the information below that you have just shared, as at no time during late January do our rates increase from our 'Off Season' rates. Only during statutory Holidays such as Christmas, New Year’s day, Easter etc.; dates in which reservations are very coveted do our rates increase. This is standard for hotels in... More

My wife and I (and dog too) just returned from a two day stay at this beach resort this week.

My husband and I spent three nights here in October. We were upgraded to a two bedroom suite with an ocean view which was fantastic. The apartments are very clean, modern and had everything we needed. The bed was super comfy (although on the small side) and heated bathroom floors are always a bonus. Hearing the ocean from bed is... More

My wife and I decided to stay here at our latest visit to Tofino, and we were not disappointed! The "room" we got is actually more like an apartment. There is a separate bedroom, bathroom, and living room, with a fully equipped kitchen area. For what it's worth, it was nicer than our apartment. Easily hands down the nicest hotel... More
