The drive across Vancouver Island on route 4(the only road) is narrow and has grades of 10-18% and on Friday afternoon it was busy on recent August day. However the hotel was welcoming and the afternoon sun shining in the stained glass windows of our room and bath was pretty special! We colapsed on our patio with a glass of... More

Booked this place a bit unsure due to some of the earlier reviews, but Tofino was packed when we were there and there was hardly anything available! Really pleasantly surprised especially by the room which was brilliant. We had a twin room at the front of the building with a lovely balcony that got the sun in the afternoons and... More

We stayed 4 nights. The room was cozy and the bed was just right. The price is reasonable and you are in the heart of town. The staff was always friendly and willing to help if you needed it. Do not forget Crazy Ron the owner. He is a cool guy and we had local people in town talk highly... More

This is the third time we've stayed at the Inn. They are adding to the landscaping and walkways, beautiful flowers and stone work. Crazy Ron is always making sure the sushi bar is running smoothly. While we ate sushi and looked out over the inner harbor, Ron dumped the daily fish entrails for the kids flock of seagulls to swarm.... More

Regrettably, this place is a complete waste of money especially during the busy season. The building is in need of some major repairs and the service is absolutely awful. We have never been treated so poorly and we travel extensively; we also visit Tofino quite often as we find the residents and scenery alike lovely. The man, who appeared to... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. From here we walked to everything else in Tofino. The staff was friendly and helpful. Comfy bed. Large room with a balcony overlooking the water. Given that there was a cafe below us I was initially concerned about possible noise but the room was quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this inn. The decor... More

These rooms are at the rear of a sushi bar and restaurant in the heart of Torfino. §ome of the rooms have full waterfront views others partial views. The rooms themselves are comfortable and spacious and decorated in a quirky style. We had a room with partial sea views and a balcony and the sea breeze kept us comfortable when... More

Expected quite a bit from this place for the price but arrived to find our room had not been properly serviced; half empty wine glasses on table and in fridge, full ashtray on balcony and food in fridge from previous guests.Put us off eating downstairs. Room service on second morning consisted of emptying the bin only. No lock on balcony... More

Sushi was delicious and enjoyed it with hubby and granddaughter Lexus from the Oceanside patio overlooking the harbour, watching planes arriving and departing as well as the boats coming and going. Was some of the freshest tastiest sushi we've had. Gerry John & Lexus

We stayed at this hotel with last minute reservations and the lady at the front desk was very nice, don't expect too much as it is an older but comfortable inn. I wish I had tried the onsite sushi restaurant but did not get a chance. I did however enjoy a couple drinks with a very nice couple from Scotland... More
