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.

Four of us stayed in the Thornton Motel for 2 nights. It was a perfect, spacious set up for a group of our size. Two rooms, one with a double bed and the other with twin beds, a kitchen with everything you needed to prepare food, and a living room, as well. Beds were very comfortable! Bathroom looks like it...

Large dated rooms. Glad we were upstairs as I think it would have been noisy to be under given the elevated walkway and thin walls. Summer rates in Ucluelet are very high. This was one of the more affordable places, though it felt overpriced even then for the quality of the room and furnishings. You need to go into the... More

We stayed in a room with kitchenette for 3 nights while visiting the Pacific Rim. The hotel does not look like much from the outside but the room exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, clean and comfortable and the kitchenette had everything one might need. Laundry facilities available. Like many other motels, you could hear people above, but we've experienced...

Noisy upstairs. I think it's an old building. We liked the kitchen set up, had dishes, cook ware for us, closed to Norwood restaurant and Matthetson House restaurant. Walking distance to harbor. Must see place is Wild Pacific Trail. Free and breath taking. Didn't think much of front desk lady. She was not unfriendly but not supper welcoming either. Good... More

Stayed here in June when I suddenly got sick on a camping trip and needed to get indoors. I was pleasantly surprised as I wasn't expecting much. The room was clean and large with a kitchenette. The bed was comfy even if the furnishings were dated. Overall, good value for the money. Be prepared to hear people above or below,... More

This clean well appointed motel above the boat basin is perfect for a fishing trip. It isn't luxury like Black Rock, but it is roomy, clean and well located. Our room for tree fishermen was large with two bedrooms, three beds, a living room with a hide-a-bed (maybe 2 hide-a-beds) three TVs, full kitchen with micro, full stove, coffee machine... More
