The unit was clean and new, staff is friendly and they have a nice indoor pool. However the Internet connection is poor, sometimes unusable. Staff knows about the problem but doesn't do anything about it.

Hi there Thanks for coming and glad you found our place comfortable. To clarify, yes, we do know the internet on the West Coast is not the greatest, but it is not under our control. Until Telus brings the fibre optic lines out to the coast (it is hopeful this project may start in 2016), the internet is at full... More

It can be challenging to find accommodations that offers a good quality bed for everybody. The Whale's Tale Guest Suites provides that and more. The large family suite my group booked included a bedroom with three beds and a separate master with a queen. There is also a solid pull out couch in the ample-sized living room. The large bathroom... More

Thanks, "Mom" and family for coming and taking the time to write a review. So glad you enjoyed our place. The 2 bedroom suites are definitely spacious and good for a family (with children over 12). Nothing like family-time! Hope you can come again! Happy travels! Brenda and Jeff More

I stayed at the Whale's Tail for just one night on my longest to date motorcycle ride (the best so far!) to the magnificent Pacific Rim National Park area, Ucluelet and Tofino. This is an older motel but clean with full kitchen. Very quiet. Close to the wharf and docks and many interesting restaurants. The owner, Brenda, was very friendly... More

Thanks for coming and taking the time to write a review!! Glad you enjoyed the space and kitchen. Great little apartments for those who don't like to feel like they are in a "hotel", but with the same hotel amenities. Hope the ride was smooth! Happy travels! Brenda and Jeff More

I booked our rooms at this facility in Mar. 2014, for a visit in June. I spoke with Jeff & after an information filled conversation, booked three Euro Sleeper rooms. We had some concern over the term "Euro Sleepers" & attempted to search for more info on line. Nothing was found. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Brenda, in... More

This is is pleasant and comfortable holiday apartment. The apartment we had was a one bedroom with full kitchen and living area. Very comfortable and quiet. Although situated on the main road in Ucluelet, it was peaceful and handy to the supermarket, liquor store and town centre. Sleeping arrangements in our apartment are a queen bed and single in the...

Hello! Thank you so much for your visit! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and took the time to write! With our accommodation being just off the main road on a residential street in the town centre, you are right - it is so easy to get to everything on foot. Happy travels, Brenda and Jeff More

Great little spot to stay. Very clean rooms. Could hear the foot steps in the room above us in the morning when the fishermen got up early. Nice to have a BBQ outside our door. Rooms a little dark, but your not spending a lot of time in them. Not the place to stay for a romantic weekend, but very... More

we stayed there for 3 nights in June 2014. Everything was just perfect - a great suite with all the amenities, clean and comfortable. Everything you need is just around the corner, staff is freindly, and you get it all for a reasonable price.

The photos of Whales Tail do not do justice to how lovely this place is. I was surprised when I arrived to find a large spotlessly clean suite, with a well equipped kitchen and a good size dinning/living area and a spacious bedroom. There was also a nice patio and furniture which we didn't utilise due to the poor weather.... More

Thanks for coming fellas! Glad you enjoyed the unit - an oldie, but a goodie. It is slated for renovation, but probably will be a winter 2014 project rather than this winter.
