“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This was my first stay in the area for a while and I was pleasantly surprised by the "basic" accommodations I was expecting.

Thanks Brenda for your warm, personable, helpful hospitality! Kudos to your cleaning staff on keeping things immaculate.

I will definitely stay with you again. I'd love to enjoy your pool next time and take time to enjoy the beauty of this uniquely rugged paradise.

Thank you, Pat, for coming! A Euro sleeper may be small, but is excellent value for 1 night. We are so pleased that you found it to be comfortable and clean. We do hope to see you again soon, with your bathing suit packed!

Happy Travels!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

I was totally impressed by this little motel on my last stay in Ucluelet. Normally I don't stay in motels period, because I prefer all the amenities and services that hotels usually provide. Having said that, during my previous stay in Ucluelet, I had a bad experience at the Black Rock Resort so this time I decided to try something different.

The West Coast Motel is very well kept, and is clean and comfortable. Upon checking in, I was greeted and welcomed by the owners who were friendly and provided excellent service throughout my stay. The motel has a huge gym/pool facility that could compete with any fitness centre anywhere and despite not planning to use it, I found myself hitting the weights for the first time in a long time.

I wanted a nice view so the girl who took my reservation suggested the "little green cabin" to me. As soon as I arrived to the cabin, all the stress melted away and I felt instantly comfortable and relaxed. Also, the cabin is of course very environmentally friendly which is nice because we can always work on reducing our ecological footprint; even when on holidays!

Room Tip: The little green cabin was great!!

My husband and I stayed here in July. The room was well above average for the price , We enjoyed the large living space as well as the kitchenette . The room and kitchen area were spotless. We were skeptical of the owner's enthusiasm about Ucluelet but followed may of his suggestions and were never disappointed. As a matter of fact, our most boring time was walking around Tofino. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed three nights there and enjoyed it! The room was small but clean. We missed a microwave. We came back to this motel after one really overpriced night in Tofino. Price/Value is great in this motel and we definitely would stay there again :-)
The front desk staff and owner were VERY kind and gave us a lot of recommendations.

We spent three nights in ucluelet in the wettest couple of weeks possible in early September but we had a blast. Room was small but perfectly formed with a really comfortable bed. Location outstanding for the local restaurants and wildlife. Just from the car park behind the hotel we saw harbour seal, otters and bald eagles. Owners were lovely, pool was a treat

Hello!

Thank you ever so much for coming and writing a review on our behalf. We are glad you found our "Euro Sleeper" comfortable and that the location was favourable for you! Come again!! If you like, we do have larger units, as well, or the Euro sleepers, as you had are always a great option for those on a budget, who don't need any thing other than a bed and a shower, a coffee maker and a TV in a pocket-sized space. We hope the rest of your holiday was fantastic!

Happy travels!
