We (Group of 4 friends) were at this place at the end of June and had a really nice stay there. The receptionist was polite and helpful. The roomservice was good. So I can totally recommend this motel. Especially for young people since there is also the opportunity to have a BBQ in the backyard.

We really liked this motel overall. It was right next to the ocean and our rooms were decent sized. A few things we didn't like... The bathroom was poorly laid out, and our toilet did not work. The front desk staff were anything but friendly pretty sure they all hated their jobs and the house keeping staff was very sloppy.... More

Motel is located in pleasant location near entrance of Tofino. Restaurants nearby. Beds comfortable. Flat screen TVs. Although our room appeared clean, young staff working there in mid-July appeared to lack sufficient training. We had to call one day at 4:30 because our room had not been cleaned and we required fresh towels. When we also asked for clean drinking... More

When you are paying $219 per night the room should be made up before 5 pm. This motel has a pleasant location, though parking is awkward because of a steep ramp. The young staff appear untrained. As an older, wooden building, noise between floors is inevitable. Not recommended as a place to stay.

I was very surprised to read the last few reviews. Do not let them fool you, this place is a gem! Beautiful view from room 36 (top floor closest to the office) received a steal of a deal In June when everywhere else in town was crazy expensive.. The room was clean and comfortable.. The staff were very friendly and... More

I was amazed to read the last two reviews and am glad I didn't see them before staying here. We have a lovely room with separate bedroom, comfy sofa bed in lounge , basic but adequate bathroom, fridge and microwave. Fantastic views over the ocean, is all we expected and meets our requirements very well. We have found the staff... More

This was the worst accommodation we experienced in our 2 week holiday to Canada, thankfully we only had 1 night here. We had a standard groundfloor room with no view. The room stank of mould but we couldn't open a window from a security aspect. The reception staff were not welcoming. We just cannot think of any pros of staying... More

What a disappointment. Tofino is beautiful but staying at this hotel was a mistake I will never make again. The hotel staff don't show any signs of wanting to provide customer service. The room smells of mold or mildew and made us want to stay out of the room as much as possible. The queen bed was sitting on an... More

I was woken up at 1am to the pounding of a horrible drum kit and PA system from the pub in the parking lot, no wifi, shower has no pressure and the rooms have paper thin walls so you can hear peoples conversations. Had a great time in Tofino it was an amazing experience but this motel ruined my trip.

Booked this motel for the view and paid extra for a balcony to enjoy it. When I checked in I asked if I could have a sunny balcony and was told they were all sunny. Went into the room and found it to be dark dingy a bit smelly and overlooking the car park into a very high hedge. No... More
