I stayed in room 301 - top floor kitchenette suite, two queen size beds, and a view of the harbour. There's a pool and work out area , within walking distance to all the shopping available in Ucluelet

Thanks for coming and for taking the time to write a review! Yes, we have some "unexpected" views in some of our guest units at the West Coast Motel on the Harbour (not all have views - just a footnote). However, if you do book a room with a private balcony, you will be assured of a great view of... More

Everything met my expectations. The room with kitchen and facing the harbour was more than OK. A variety of restaurants in walking distance if needed but having a kitchen and the nice view over the harbour with also outside picnic tables nearby meant it was more peaceful to self cater.

We had booked this motel from New Zealand and were a little worried of what to expect after the experience with a motel in Tofino the night before. So different. We accepted that it was a motel not a hotel so lowered our expectations. There were a couple of problems that were fixed quickly and efficiently. There was no clock... More

My wife and I were in Ucluelet for 2 nights for a portion of our honeymoon. Upon hearing this, Jeff (the owner) gave us a bottle of wine for our stay. Additionally, he looked to upgrade us into a bigger room. But, really, the best thing about our stay was Jeff and Brenda's knowledge of the area, especially with regards... More

This hotel has much going for it. It is clean, has a very friendly staff, has a good location right in town, and the price is good for this part of the world. We were travelling on a weekend, and booked just the day befor for a one night stay though, so we had street side rooms as opposed to... More

Hi folks! Thanks so much for coming! We really appreciate it. You would probably love our West Coast Balcony units, as they are quite large with a view of the harbour. The Euro sleepers are, as advertised, quite tiny - 11 square metres and basic, with a double bed, full washroom with shower, coffee maker and TV. Great for the... More

The motel is right on the main road and an easy walk into town. The room was clean and comfortable and there was free wifi. Parking was easy too. The welcome was warm and the staff were helpful. There is a laundry room too. I would stay again.

Hello! Thank you very much for coming and taking the time to write a review. We are glad you found our units comfortable! We do ask every guest to be considerate after 10 PM and before 9 AM when leaving rooms, so that loud talking is not disturbing guests at quiet time. I assume this issue cropped up during the... More

Everything was wonderful - from the location, a very short walk to the harbor, within walking distance of everything else in Ucluelet, and a perfect starting point for hiking the Pacific Rim trails and beaches; to the accommodations, very neat and clean kitchenette; to the nearby restaurant, the Float House; and especially to the managers, friendly with great information about...

Staying in Ucluelet was a nice surprise - we loved the vibe of the town and the hotel was home away from home. Clean, spacious, and the kitchen was well-stocked. And Brenda is a whirlwind of energy and enthusiasm, with impeccable taste in food. The motel is within walking distance of a very scenic section of the West Coast Trail,... More

Before posting this, I read through some of the negative reviews posted here. Yes - it is in a rainforest. That means humidity... Yes - it is a motel. That means it's not a five star hotel.. We spent two nights here in June 2014, and if we could have stayed longer we would have. Family run, we were greeted... More
