The motel is very well located within walking distance of shops and some attractions. The staff of the hotel is really very helpful to make the most of your visit. From fishing, whale watching or black bear spotting. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a swimming pool and a fitness, but I didn't have enough time to use... More

We spent 3 nights here and were very pleased. Good little kitchenette in our room to self cater and save some money and the bed was super comfortable except the pillows where too soft for my big shoulders. A firmer pillow option for larger side sleepers would have been good. Friendly service, good location and a well equipped fitness room... More

I stayed in room 301 - top floor kitchenette suite, two queen size beds, and a view of the harbour. There's a pool and work out area , within walking distance to all the shopping available in Ucluelet

Thanks for coming and for taking the time to write a review! Yes, we have some "unexpected" views in some of our guest units at the West Coast Motel on the Harbour (not all have views - just a footnote). However, if you do book a room with a private balcony, you will be assured of a great view of... More

Everything met my expectations. The room with kitchen and facing the harbour was more than OK. A variety of restaurants in walking distance if needed but having a kitchen and the nice view over the harbour with also outside picnic tables nearby meant it was more peaceful to self cater.

We had booked this motel from New Zealand and were a little worried of what to expect after the experience with a motel in Tofino the night before. So different. We accepted that it was a motel not a hotel so lowered our expectations. There were a couple of problems that were fixed quickly and efficiently. There was no clock... More

My wife and I were in Ucluelet for 2 nights for a portion of our honeymoon. Upon hearing this, Jeff (the owner) gave us a bottle of wine for our stay. Additionally, he looked to upgrade us into a bigger room. But, really, the best thing about our stay was Jeff and Brenda's knowledge of the area, especially with regards... More

Hi folks! Thanks so much for coming! We really appreciate it. You would probably love our West Coast Balcony units, as they are quite large with a view of the harbour. The Euro sleepers are, as advertised, quite tiny - 11 square metres and basic, with a double bed, full washroom with shower, coffee maker and TV. Great for the... More

The motel is right on the main road and an easy walk into town. The room was clean and comfortable and there was free wifi. Parking was easy too. The welcome was warm and the staff were helpful. There is a laundry room too. I would stay again.
