My husband and I recently stayed here for 2 nights. The inn is an old building that is decorated around the owner's whimsical tastes. In the lobby and restaurant there are comic books on the ceiling, old signs lined up around the rooms and a hodgepodge of tin cars and toys hanging everywhere. The room was small but clean, decorated... More

I loved this hotel from the relaxed check in to the extraordinary view from our private balcony. It was very clean quite roomy. The bathroom was as large as any major hotel I've stayed in. I have read some negative reviews about this place so I recommend that you read what it is not. It is not the Sheraton or... More

The views are amazing, the sushi restaurant is delicious and the rooms are quaint, cute and comfortable. My aunt and I really enjoyed our stay here. Perfect for sitting on the balcony and watching the float planes and boats putter around the hat or whilst drinking a glass of wine or beer. Beautiful!

I've stayed here five times. There is no describing the unique character of this hotel. See their website. Great people, great view of Claquot Sound. Tofino is a great destination with Pacific Rim Park nearby.

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
