This motel appears to be quite new, even has the new smell in the rooms which are very large though rather sparsely furnished for their size. Everything was very clean, very comfortable bed, fluffy towels and nice toiletries. There is a fridge, sink, microwave and a really good coffee machine with insulated pot which keeps coffee nice and hot. No... More

We were given the disabled room which had just been modernised and was tastefully done and very large. It maybe seemed extra large as we had no sofa which was a shame and had to ask for a bedside light (so we must have been the first occupants and btw we're not disabled). But other than that all good.

This motel must be brand new. It was a huge room, one of the lowest prices that we found in Ucluelet or Tofino. The room still smelled like the cedar on the ceiling. The bed and pullout couch were comfortable, the towels were bright white and fluffy, and the kitchenette was a bonus we didn't expect! The staff was very... More

This was quite expensive but everywhere else was booked up. Nice big clean room and bed. Must be new or recently refurbished. Good wifi. Problem was we could hear every footstep from room above us. Plumbing quite noisy. Ask for room on top floor

Good points: - suites are relatively cheap, especially considering the high scores of accommodation in the area - big, big space - a suite consists in a big living room + two big bedrooms, bathroom and a well equipped kitchen - central location, close to restaurants. not a huge plus though, as most people visit Ucluelet & surroundings by car...

We booked two 2 bedroom suites for the Labour Day Weekend, and were so pleased with our accommodation. The rooms were so spacious, and very clean, and the kitchens were equipped. We ate outside on the picnic tables provided, and we had a large group who all thought it was a great place to stay. Everyone had a bed, so... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights and because of a fire in some regular rooms, we got an upgrade to a big appartment, with living room, two bedrooms and kitchen. Interior was somewhat older, but I liked that actually and it was definately kept clean. Originally had plans for 3 nights, but because of a late departure from Campbell... More

This motel was centrally located and the staff were friendly and helpful. Everything is clean and well kept. The rooms are large and comfortable with all necessary amenities. This is a good travel value. We would definitely stay here again.
