The Maquinna Lodge is right in downtown Tofino and close to the water. It's a family run place with simple rooms but everything is very clean. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Although the hotel doesn't have a restaurant or provide breakfast, they do have a lovely large common room equipped with a fridge, coffee maker, microwave and... More

I really liked this place. It has an amazing location and a great view of the waterfront. Walking distance to anywhere in town. It is very basic and very plain to look at, but the staff really made it a great place. It was absolutely spotless, I have never stayed in a cleaner place, and I could see the staff... More

For excellent value you can't go wrong here. The rooms are spacious and spotless and the bed pretty comfortable. The shower was excellent too. You can park at the back as well. The guy on the reception was helpful. Check-in is from 3pm but I got the room before that.

This place does not seem like much from the outside, but it is clean and adequate for a stay in Tofino. Located in a great location with the ability to walk to most places in Tofino. Friendly service at the front desk with very easy check-in. Wifi was adequate and we did not hear any noise at night. There was... More

We stayed there for 2 nights, nothing special, a room with a bed and a washroom. Very bad isolation, we could hear the snoring of our neighbour! In my opinion too pricy ! Close to the dock and the restaurant Sea Shanty which is quite delicious! Liquor store in the same building!

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
