I stayed at this hotel last weekend, brought my kids, we wanted a quiet get away and watch the Queen of the Peak surf competition. Was immediatly welcomed by the owner late Friday night. He gave my kids juice and helped carry our bags. We loved our room. Pretty view of the ocean and nice soaker tub. The kids loved... More

I was excited to host a wedding event here, excited to try out the sushi and have some fun! We confirmed with the manager months in advance, and then within the month of the event and the week before the event, the owner cancelled our reservation! He said we will "not be spending enough money", and he will "make more... More

I stayed in Room #5, which had a great bathroom and a balcony which overlooked the harbour/ocean. The room was very comfortable, with all the amenities (minifridge, micro, fast WiFi, flat screen tv, a very comfortable bed, fireplace stove, and an incredible view of the harbour. The innkeeper, Anna, was very friendly and hospitable. Check-in was smooth and fast, as... More

A friend and I shared room no. 10, village view, twin beds. It was fine. The room included a fridge and coffee maker, with coffee bags (like tea bags) supplied. We had a little balcony overlooking the village. The bathroom was enormous with a large soaker tub, which I made grateful use of after a long day of walking the... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a enthusiastic man in the lobby who was more than stoked to get us situated. He explained our awesome balcony, all in/out procedures and offered to assist with unpacking the car (which we were fine without, but it was a sweet feature considering the laid back nature assumed by the overall esthetics). Once we... More

If you are tired of those sterile, predictable hotel rooms then The Inn at Tough City is the place to stay. We had room one with the view of the harbor. There was always something happening to entertain you. Seaplanes, kayaks, water taxis, fishing boats, tour boats, barges and tug boats. You could see all of this from your covered... More

Drew and I got married on MacKenzie Beach, and we stayed at the Inn at Tough City with our family. We had a fantastic time! The people who worked there were all so happy for us. We had a family dinner in the Sushi Bar. We all (4 couples) all stayed in lovely rooms. Super comfy beds, wonderful views, good... More

Pros: Convenient location; exterior of building. Cons: Non-existent service; no support for travelers; bad attitude of staff; poorly maintained/furnished room; no security; massively overpriced; lack of transparency on prices. Summary: Dollar for dollar, the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Spent 4 days there in August, 2012. Let's start with the positives. The Inn at Tough City is located in... More

We booked a king room by booking.com and we had a really poor queen bed because as the lady at the front desk said , there was a double booking . She was nice to give us a room with a nice view instead of the king ( with partial harbour view we rent) but the room itself was so... More
