My husband and I went to four different B&B's around Vancouver Island on our stay and this was by FAR our favourite place-we stayed in the Barnacle Suite. The cost was very reasonable, the room was HUGE, the bed was comfy, the food stellar, and such an amazing, private view. We will absolutely return to the Tides Inn-thanks Val for... More

We were in the Dungeness room, which suited us wonderfully. It was off the yard which had two lovely sitting areas (small decks) overlooking the beach. The room was very spacious--had a small table and in front of the fireplace two comfy chairs. We had access to a shared kitchenette with fridge, sink, dishes, kettle and micro. We had wine... More

We stayed at the Tides Inn, in early July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We could easily walk into the centre of the town to explore the commerce and watch the spectacular sunset. Harley made the most wonderful breakfasts and always served them with a smile. She also happily recommended places for dinner. On our last day there, because we... More

The best thing about The Tides Inn is the views. Most B&B's in Tofino are NOT located on the water. However, The Tides Inn is on a cliff overlooking the bay at the west end of Tofino. The view is fantastic!!! As some reviews have noted, The Tides Inn is a little worn. It is not bad, but it is... More

We recently stayed at Tides Inn for 3 nights and can't speak highly enough of our experience. Val and Harley, her helper, were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Val offered us an upgraded room which was very spacious with a king sized bed, kitchenette, and lounge area. All tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Breakfasts were creative and... More

We just returned from an idyllic four days at The Tide's Inn in Tofino. Located a convenient five block walk from the town, this accommodation does not disappoint. Perched on the edge of Duffin Cove, the Inn has four large guest rooms that are nicely furnished and equipped with mini kitchen, WiFi, TV, and a lovely ocean view. You can... More

When we arrived at Tides Inn we found a note from Val welcoming us with directions to our room. The note also told us how to find the breakfast room for the morning where Val said she would meet us, if not before. We do appreciate that it is not always possible for the host to meet all their gusts... More

We stayed at The Tides Inn for three nights as part of a trip around British Columbia and a cruise to Alaska. This was definitely the highlight of our time away. We were confident that we would be staying at professional establishment when our booking process was conducted while Val was treking in Nepal. As we were travelling to Tofino... More

This is the second time we have visited Tofino and the second time we have stayed at Val's. Last time we wished we had stayed longer - this time we did and stayed for a week in September 2013. Val is an excellent hostess and the breakfasts are simply superb. Each morning the breakfast is different, beautifully cooked and they... More
