Average rooms, wicked location and best breakfast spot in town. The onsite pub was the #1 hotspot on Saturday night. I forgot my (expensive) yuppie pillow, and they sent it back free of charge! I can't highlight how awesome this hotel is.

Rooms were clean and quiet, which is what we were looking for. I wish the windows would open, because the room got really stuffy. Decore is outdated, but bedding was comfortable. Not the best, but certainly not the worst motel I've stayed at.

Stayed for 2 nights in February 2012. A nice motel - not a 5 star but the room was clean and faced the water. Central location in Tofino - so close to everything. They had a very nice pub next to the motel - great food and cold beer!! Off season rates were fine and if you can be in Tofino during storm season-it is worth the trip. Awesome days on the beach during a storm!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the water!!

Firstly, this motel has upgraded and changed more than just its name. (ex- Weigh West) We read a few reviews here on trip advisor and presumed the worst. We were pleasantly surprised.
Sumptuous bed, clean rooms/linens and bathroom amenities. Young staff that were glad to help with cheery dispositions.
An outstanding location! The big yellow Barn is just the beginning of the Tofino adventure.
Easy walking distance to all that the little surfing town has to offer. Good for Tofino, no box stores.
well done on the upgrades (patio chairs, curtains etc). We visited during peak season, so it was busy, still, no worries.
Restaurants...wow. Jacks waterfront Pub was cozy and busy, the Greenroom diner served excellent valued meals with by far the best view in town.
We used Booking.com and were glad we did! Oh yeah, we visited the beaches too. :)

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. No elevators. Everybody gets a harbour view!

My boyfriend and I have been coming to Tofino for a couple years, and we were happily surprised with the changes this place has made. The renovated pub has a great atmosphere, and Karaoke Night on Wednesday was a blast! You gotta get in early though, the line-up to get in was out the door!
The room was clean, and the staff were friendly, but it was obvious that the renovations hadn't quite made it to the hotel rooms yet apart from a flat screen TV. I hope when we return next year, the rooms will be updated like the pub and restaurant.
Would definitely stay here again. Great location and excellent pub right on property.

Our Sea view suite was very clean and well equiped for the everyday traveller. The staff were very friendly and helpful and very insightful. The location is fabulous for access to town and to the beaches. Plenty of places to eat close by. Would recommend this hotel. Don't expect 5* luxury, nevertheless you'll enjoy having bald eagles watch you from the trees overlooking the sea

Room Tip: Pick a suite if you can afford it, on the 3rd floor
