Stayed here with my husband in winter using Hotwire (Expedia). Hotwire advertised a slashed rate of 265.00/night, "75% off Winter Sale", and I so I purchased for 66.00/night. What a deal right? Turns out the Marina West has a regular rate of 69.00/night, so I saved a whopping 3 bucks. Lesson for ya -- don't book through Hotwire. They refused... More

Stayed using a Groupon. We were pleased with the clean room and the beautiful view. The staff was friendly and helpful. Groupon included a whale watching trip. Our Captain Ike was fantastic. Although we didn't see a whale he made the experience unforgettable and will be one of the best memories we will ever have.

Pretty much everything you need except shopping. It has a competent restaurant for breakfast. A good pub to wind down at night. A private pier to go on. Whale watching business right there. And a hotel with friendly staff and clean rooms. They also allow pets for a $40 fee. I definitely will stay there again.

It was easy to find and close to town. We check in around 6pm & rested for a bit but when we decided to go have dinner @ the diner, it was close. It's only open from 8-3 on sunday to thursday. Front desk didn't inform us about it. We then have to scramble to look for a place to... More

We had harbour view rooms and took advantage of groupon deal. If looking for high end, it is not here but if you want good value it was great. We did have partiers outside our window at 1:30 but they soon went to bed. The diner had great breakfasts and watching the harbour load boats etc. was great fun. Whale... More

I booked this room through Groupon and I guess they don't want return visits. I would have thought that the owners would want to put there best foot forward so you would tell others and return yourself. Won't happen. The room I was given had no views what so ever so if you choose to stay here make sure you... More

Good clean rooms with very good beds, (even the pull out was comfy) and showers. It's on the edge of the village and walking there is super easy. Go to the Roy Henry Vickers Gallery for some beautiful contemporary First Nations Art. Internet is a bit sporadic, sometimes strong signal, sometimes no so much. (I'd give it a 5 rating... More

Clean, good-sized room, very close to the center of town (about a ten minute walk). We didn't have much of a view, but we can't complain for what we paid. Very friendly staff, nice looking pub which is right on the water. Would stay again!

This is the second time for me at this location. First time with the new management. It's still really good. I have been going back to Tofino for many years. There are two accommodation options for me, a resort or the Marina West. Marina West gives you a great location right in town. You can walk and explore the shops.... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank-you for your review! Did you know that motel guests receive a discounted rate on whale watching, bear watching & hot springs trips at our on-site Marine Adventure Centre? The season kicks off in March and runs until September! We look forward to accommodating you again in the future. Kind Regards, The Team at Marina West More
