The lodge is a good place to stay in Tofino. It is affordable, has a parking lot (don't be late), is clean and comfortable. It is not fancy or special but perfectly fine for staying a couple of days. Liked it.

The hotel is one of the cheapest in Tofino, but it's very clean and the staff is very friendly! The double room is actually quit big but there is no airco or minibar so the rooms are very basic! But there was no noice at night so thats good.

We just left Maquinna & loved every minute at the hotel and in the adorable town of Tofino. Would have stayed longer but it was booked out so get in early. Very reasonable rates, super friendly & helpful family-run place, who have been there for 19 years and everything seemed updated. We had a water view and were only minutes... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the Maquinna is located right in downtown Tofino, making it a great location from which to enjoy the many attractions and activities this town has to offer. There is a central lounge for guests that has free coffee/tea/hot chocolate available, as well as a fridge and sink, counter, and tables/chairs. Handy if... More

Okay, this is not the place to book to celebrate your silver wedding anniversary unless you don't want to see your 26th! What it is however is a very acceptable hotel, in a great position for the price charged in this town. As everyone says, it is quite old and basic but clean. For one night it is more than... More

My husband and I returned to Tofino after many years--just a quick trip to see the changes - our 40th wedding anniversary treat. The Maquinna Lodge was very satisfactory. We had the best view of Tofino harbour from our room-- the sunset was great! No elevators, but luckily we could still do the stairs. The hotel is conveniently located in... More

Excellent location in the centre of Torino with a great view. Rooms are spacious with all basic requirements. Staff were very helpful during our stay and were more than happy to deal with our endless questions. Young couple travelling around Canada for three weeks.

We found the Maquinna Lodge to be an older hotel, that is kept very clean. The room is small and just adequate. It could be improved by adding the refrigerator and microwave, or at least coffee maker, that most motels have . The good news is that it is in a good location, convenient to restaurants and shops.

My friend & I stayed here for one night during our stay in Tofino. The room was nice & clean, but a little stuffy in the summer hear, with no fan or A/C. Good location, central in town, with a supermarket next door. Great restaurant across the road as well. Be aware that there are no lifts, so you will... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in a twin room. The room was very basic. It had no drink making facilities or fridge but did have a TV, if that's your thing. The owner was very friendly and the room was cleaned daily and fresh towels provided. It is centrally located.
