3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for two nights in a king room located on second floor. Rooms are rustic but equipped with everything you need. View is amazing and it was nice to sleep with the patio door open at night, listening to the waves. The service we received was good. At $330/ night we have stayed at way more luxurious places but prices... More

The person in the front desk, specifically named Lee was not as friendly as others, he is not willing to help us at all and just showed nothing but bad attitude. Seems not interested with the guests concern at all...

The resort is right on the beach. It is a great place to explore the beach when the tide rolls out. We stayed in the executive suite on the third floor. The view was amazing. We kept the door open during the night to hear the ocean. The bed was so comfortable. We didn't use the kitchen but that option... More

Fab room opened onto a garden with views of the beach. Can't get very far without a car so if you like to walk the beach will have to do. Loved it here and will definitely return. Clean and modern. Only annoyance was the room key kept wiping and had to be reprogrammed on a daily basis

The property was situated overlooking a protected beach and the rooms were clean and well appointed. We experienced problems with the key cards and the free wi-fi both of which were sorted out after a few visits to the reception area. The hot tub situated within the hotel seemed popular but more could have been made of the views.

A great place to relax with the family, with a quiet sandy beach, rock pools and plenty of nature nearby. Tofino is a 3 to 4 hour drive from the ferry at Nainamo, through a picturesque winding route that cuts across Vancouver Island. The hotel is comfortable without being deluxe. Check-in is a bit slow but polite. A great personal... More

Homey but spectacular setting. If you don't have kids ask for a second or third floor room. Unique setting. Our second time staying there....it is an ideal place to stay for several days and to use as a home base for exploring Tofino and environs.

Large room with awesome view. Nice balconies for sitting, grills for cooking and a wonderful beach for exploring. While we were there, one washer was broken and it was inconvenient for a such a large property to only have one other working washer (with the requirement for multiple night bookings most people seemed to have the need to use laundry...

This is a good hotel, the staff were welcoming and friendly and although the buildings seem somewhat dated, the restaurant appears to be fairly new. We were in a separate building to the main hotel and the view from the balcony was magnificent, looking out to sea with all the islands and across the beach. The room was large and... More

This Best Western is right on Mackenzie Beach in Tofino. They have several pet-friendly rooms, and these are popular with dog owners. In April, when we visited, the prices were reasonable, and we really enjoyed the views of the water and the direct access to the beach. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and the bathroom well laid out.... More
