We got three rooms for Oysterfest 2016. One room smelt so bad of mould - disgusting. Our room bed was terrible - old nasty thread bear sheets, flat pillows and a quilt that wouldn't sell at a thrift store! No tea or coffee in room. Toothpaste spatter on frame of mirror in bathroom. Truly a motel where didn't want to...

Stayed in the hotel recently and the mold & mildew were horrific!! If you have any kind of respiratory issues, stay away!! I thought I was going to have to seek medical help. Had to go outside during the night to get fresh air. Was up and gone real early the next day. Certainly would not recommend this hotel to...

Dated but decent rooms. Quite large. Excellent location just steps from everything and a great view of the water just outside the door. Beds were comfy. No coffee pot in the room and the coffee room does not open until 8! Price is reasonable.

Got to Tofino late, but Schooner Motel is right across from bus depot. Fairly cheap rates, but attached restaurant is pricey. I don't use a credit card, so I left $100 deposit which I was able to get back the night before I checked out because I was leaving before office opened. Very accommodating.

The Bad. The rooms are dingy with carpeting that has rolled up and is tattered. There is no phone in the...

Arrived in Tofino with no hotel reservations so was pleasantly surprised to find a motel right in the centre of town with a vacancy! The Asian man at reception was very helpful. The room was clean and the kitchenette had a stove, small fridge and microwave (Peter E has obviously never used a microwave or pot on the stove to...

Oriental man at reception quite unhelpful. Limited english. Room clean enough but no coffee or tea and no way to even heat water. No phone in room. Carpet needed cleaning and one corner is permanently turned over creating tripping hazard. Very poor value for money.

This motel has a great location; walking distance to everything. it is very old and smelly. The staff was friendly but everything inside looks worn out and outdated. It looked like it came from garage sale years ago. The sheets and towels were clean, and rooms looked clean. just that old smell; I had to keep the door open to...

It was myself and 4 teenagers staying here. Room was big enough for all of us!! Floor was a bit creeky (laminate flooring)but was better than yucky carpet that most hotels have. It was perfect the location to walk to anywhere downtown. Right across the street from the grocery store. The owner saw one of my teens trying to carry...
