This was our first trip to this area and I feel fortunate that we chose West Coast Motel. It is family owned and managed and the couple in charge, as well as their housekeeping staff, could not have been nicer. Our accomodation with kitchen was spotless and comfortable and had everything we needed , including wine glasses! We were surprised not to find an alarm clock, which we seldom travel with anymore, but there was an automated wake up call service- and we learned later that brief power outages are not uncommon during the night in that area of BC, so the wake up call was installed as a way to be sure no one missed their alarm ( like my guys early fishing trip required). Just an example of how they try to 'think things through" in running their motel.
We found in general that accomodations in this area ( we were in Port Alberni as well) were higher in price than we would have expected , but I suppose the remoteness makes everything more ciostly. West Coast was a better value for the money than our accomodation in Port Alberni had been , so I guess it is just what things cost.
We would certainly stay there again if we travel through that area- and we might , because the fishing was amazing.
