I guess one has to look at this hotel in context. Tofino was delightful but clearly suffering under too much love (and money) of the upper side of town. Long gone is that authentic, quiet feel it must have had some time ago. Anyway, that is progress . . . and no glut of the beautiful people can undo the...

Their liquor store is run by rude employees. Kept talking to eachother the whole time, didn't say a word to us when we greeted them they just looked us in the face and kept talking. Bad. Way too expensive too. You better visit the other liquor store next to gary's kitchen, couple of minutes walk.

Had to find an inexpensive place to stay in Tofino cause I knew I wouldn't really spend much time in the hotel anyway cause of the stuff I have lined up for the day. Glad to have come across the reviews of this lodge as it's pretty accurate. There are no elevators but it's not a big deal for me...

We checked out places to stay in Tofino and found a Lodge that offered good value, right in the heart of town, on the beach, close to grocery stores and restaurants. McQuinna Lodge is named after a chief; efficiently run by Orientals. We had a large room with windows to the ocean. We watched the float planes coming and going...

If you don't already know, Tofino is an expensive place to stay. That's understandable since it is at the end of the road and deservingly popular. If you want to visit the town and surrounding world-class setting and just need a place to base from the Maquinna Lodge is a great choice. It is in the middle of town and...

This hotel is exceptionally clean. Yes, it is dated. But the room was very clean. There are no frills here but really, you shouldn't be in your room, it's Tofino! Get out and do something! This is a great budget place to lay your head at night. What more do you need?

Visited here for a few nights at the end of August. The accommodation is very basic. Painted rooms and corridors with no pictures. A bit like a dormitory. Bathroom dated. Really needs complete modernisation. Bed was modern and comfortable and everything was clean. Reception was friendly and efficient. There are no meals included with the room. There is a kitchen/dining...

The rim open with the old way with the key. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to a one. After evening the owner is gone home .Thanks to hotel.com for this junk...
