This place is just fine to stay in for a stay in Tofino if you don't need all the bells and whistles! It is a bed and a bathroom and all you need, really, since you're just sleeping there. The outside doesn't really do it justice - it is MUCH nicer than it looks from the outside! It was clean... More

This hotel was a very different experience for us, and in some ways it's not easy to write a simple review for it. At first glance, it's a faded, worn building in need of paint inside and out. Travelers who require a 5-star experience should stay away unless you want to expand your experience and become more adventurous. Our interests,... More

We just spent 4days at this great hotel.The price was a lot cheaper then most hotels in Tofino.The rooms are very clean but just the basic furniture. We had a ocean view room and I recommend getting one.The family that runs the hotel are very nice and friendly and were very helpful with directions. You can walk to all the... More

As you can see on the pictures, it's not a really fancy hotel. But I think it was one of the cheapest option to sleep in Tofino, the location was great, close to the port and also close to one beach (20 mins walk). The room was nothing special, but really clean. So don't expect to much, but it's okay... More

very cheap hotel right in the heart of Tofino. Perfect location at the end of first street with a car park and ocean views. The car park filled up fairly quickly so don't leave it late to get here! The room was basic with no ac or fridge but at these prices that's only to be expected. Breakfast was not... More

- very dated room - extremely small bed for 2 adults also it was insanely firm - no air conditioning - shower head was at about about - 5'6 (very hard to shower in when you're 6'0 and your back is killing from a terrible nights sleep) - no water pressure in shower either - good location - friendly staff

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
