I had to rank this hotel at Poor instead of Average after reading similar concerns such as "smallface1" below. I don't think they are getting the message, and there are many options in Tofino.
We felt we were mislead by the pictures and previous introductions to the suites. The pictures are of very nice suites which accommodate 6. These run at the same price point per person as the other suites, but are of a much higher quality. If you are booking for less than 6 people watch out for the lighthouse and other suites. They are very dated and reminded me of my university dorm complete with Danby fridge, constantly running toilet, no dishwasher, cracked linoleum, thin walls complete with neighbors doing "there business" ... ahh sorry. Just not nice, and you should know because they don't seem as prepared to let you know.
Service is great, and location is epic; as it is on the beach.
I travel with my family for surf mainly, and found this place not very accommodating to the surf out front.
We really liked Ocean Village down the road, but you can see my review on this.
