“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We stayed at the schooner hotel for 1 night, we got in late and everyone was closed up, even though we woke them up they gave us a room thank you kindly. The room was very clean :) chairs and ashtray outside for smokers very thoughtful

I have stayed in better camping barns than this place, with no faculties i.e coffee machine or kettle in my room and the bed was so hard and uncomfortable the floor was a better option.
to be honest bring your own tent rather than stay in this dump

A small motel which seems to struggle to provide services. "We are a small motel so if someone does not answer when calling the front desk please come to the desk" probably says it all. However room was spacious and clean and staff helpful. We had a second floor room which gave us views over the bay (when it was not raining). Location was right in the centre of Tofino. Free WiFi.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are best.

Clean and big 1 bedroom suites... right in the heart of town across from the coop....water views, full kitchen with dishes etc....second queen bed in the living- kitchen area.... good rates for the area and time of year....120.00 september... 89.00 starting October... nice folks too I travel there on business and it is a good find when you compare to the ridiculous rates at Tin Wis and all the other beach side resorts

Comparing this Motel with the others in Tofino, the room rates are great. For my taste, they could renovate it in near future, that's why only 4/5 stars in "Value".

Free coffee and tee till 11AM and very nice staff. Everything was really good at the Schooner Motel.

Three nights in Tofino, stayed indoors most of the time because of continous rain. First night was on groundfloor, no view (wall of office) but we accepted to stay here because two remaining nights were on first floor with view of the bay. Well, I say view but it was a small world with diminishing visibility due low ceiling, clouds and rain, rain, rain...
Across the road a good, well-stocked supermarket.
The electric fireplace in both rooms gave a cosy atmosphere. The first floor room had a kitchenette, good value as restaurants are expensive here in Tofino. A bit arty, Tofino did not really rock my world.

Bring your own pillows. We three poor authors were travelling to present and talk about our just-released books at Darwin's Café, but with two of us being seniors, we had to share and economise. I felt as if we were in a time warp. It was clean, but rather spartan. Luckily the food was good next door.
