This hotel was fine for us. It was a level above a hostel where you have room and an en-suite the room was quite bare but had a bed and a tv so all we needed for when we were there. The view from the room was amazing. There was no aircon and we found that the walls were a... More

I was somewhat skeptical about this place beforehand but after reading the reviews & based on the location, I had to give it a try. Surprisingly though, it was very clean, the beds extremely comfortable and one can't get a better location. I had a room which was divided by a wall which was perfect since I was travelling with...

I stayed here for two nights. I had booked the wrong days however and should have arrived a day earlier according to my reservation. At first it looked like I had to pay for the additional night I hadn't officially booked, but got it for free. The amenities are simple and basic, but you have a shower and a bed,... More

My brother and I stayed here recently in a family room. We found it clean, well kept and quiet. Yes it is older but provided a very nice place to stay. Big bathroom, comfortable beds and is close to everything in town. Would recommend the Maquinna.

The bad things: No A/C, no nets on the windows, no fridge or tea/coffee machine in the room, no hair dryer. The good things: Good location (the view + the grocery store is next door), cleanness, lounge with a view (also, the fridge, kettle and water cooler are there), decent beds, nice hosts and low price (compare to other accomodations...

My sister & I spent 2 nights at the Maquinna in August 2014. Neither of us had stayed there before, and it was my first time in Tofino. We booked quite late for this time of year, and the Maquinna was one of the only ones available at an affordable price. We weren't quite sure what to expect, however we... More

Location of this hotel is good considering it's close proximity to water as well as the main street of this small town. The view from our room was amazing. However, there was no net in the window which let a fly in when we opened the window for some fresh air. Hence we had to keep the window closed. But... More

The Maquinna Lodge is a great place for your money. This resembles a hostel in that it has a large common area with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, sink and counter area for preparing meals. There are tables and chairs and this room overlooks the harbours. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel is extremely clean. It is an older... More

Stayed for two nights in August 2013, was a great place to stay to sleep and get well rested for surfing. This hotel is a good for what you are paying and is close to the water and in the heart of Tofino. The hotel itself is also quite dated. The parking is very limited. The parking lot is an... More
