“Comfortable luxury”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Our family had a great holiday season visit. The Great Room and its view are incredible. The setting fantastic. Kudos to the friendly staff. We stayed in a cottage which added to our experience. The continental breakfast's granola, fresh fruit and yogurt was a great way to start the day.

There is the Long Beach Lodge.

It has been a while since I had been to Tofino. Last I was there, I was a 25 year old, volkswagen drivin, surfin cliche. (Kayak surfin but surfin just the same). Until this trip, I had only ever slept on the beach under a tarp down at Schooners Cove.

Now a 45 years old, Subaru drivin, kid totin, Vancouverite cliche... I returned. My wife wanted to go to Hawaii for Christmas but I refused to spend the money so instead she booked three nights over Christmas, just to get away from it all.

It is definitely a step up from days gone by.

I really quite liked the lodge, the Cabins would have been nicer but a wee bit out of our price range. I suppose we could have sold all the kids presents and lived large for those three days but the lodge rooms were comfortable, quiet and gave us quick and easy access to the great room, where we spent a fair bit of time.

Food was good but was bordering on the pricy side. The complementary continental breakfast filled the spot but if you are a carnivore, you will be left wanting. We found the serving staff to be exceptional and attentive. If you want to reduce costs, head into town as there is lots of good affordable eating there and it is only 10 minutes up the road.

One thing my wife would have loved to have had is complementary tea or coffee in the great room, while lounging about during the day but I suppose we could have boiled up our own in the room.

The Hot tub was great but I think they would benefit from having other spa services at some point, not that they want to be like the other guys down the road.

I would certainly recommend LBL to friends and family and may just return one day... After I have put my children through school or sold a kidney.

When you are 25 the beach is fine, at 45 the Long Beach Lodge is a good choice.

Thanks for you comments, I too, slept on the beach when I first started visiting Tofino in the 1960's. In those days people actually drove their cars on the beach and set up camp. Hundreds of Hippies would also be there in the summers, some of them are now our guests at the Lodge!
Best wishes for 2013. Coffee is on us next time.

We chose this lodge based on reviews. We wanted a relaxing vacation with no schedule.The place was like a tropical resort. Lush landscaping and the ocean's roar in the backgound. We used the fireplace in the room as the temperature dropped at night. The bed was comfy, the food was very good and we felt like we picked the perfect place. We will stay there again on our next visit. We didn't know Tofino was a surfing destination.It brought back memories of years ago. There was a local brewing which had free tastings, a coffee shop to die for (watch out Starbucks!) and there were plenty of good restaurants nearby. Whale watching was a treat as we are from Texas.We stayed 3 days and hated to leave to make our next stop in Nanaimo.Lots of wildlife on the island, take time to check it out.

Room Tip: West side has ocean views.

I am glad you selected us for your visit to Tofino, based on the comments of other guests to the Lodge. Trip Advisor is a very useful resource, when deciding where to stay, second only to the recommendation from a friend. Diane and I use Trip Advisor whenever we travel.
Best wishes for a great New Year in Texas!

where do i start?! family circumstances had us coming back to spend our second xmas here. and we have discovered a whole other world of people who choose to spend xmas at a hotel, and what a wonderful world that is at this lodge. through snowy sutton pass that was well plowed when we came through on the 24th, along the winding beach road and through the thick rainforest to the lodge. we were lucky to get the same room facing the ocean, bliss.( there are cabins/cottages also.) after we unloaded way too many bags, we sipped wine after placing the armchairs in front of the opened sliding glass balcony door, listening to the surf crash and watching the surfers. we love the great room, where we eat our meals and sit in front of the fire to read our books and play scrabble. the servers are friendly, professional and well versed in the menu. we enjoyed the continental buffet breakfast that is included in the room price. over our 3 days there we had the casear salad, a pizza, fish and chips, a salmon dinner and the chowder and all were very good. it has been mentioned in other trip advisor comments how expensive the meals are here. well, we find most good restaurant meals expensive. we don't go out much so this is a treat for us. part of the package! we watched the staff replenish the fire, vaccum, and attend to their customers while respecting their need to relax. the lodge provides umbrellas and rain coats in each room for our daily walks on the wonderful cox bay beach. all ages were staying here, young couples, families of all ages and older couples. the rooms have a coffee pot, kettle and large mini fridge. we are very happy we found this place to spend our xmas at and look forward to many more stays.

Our fourth stay at the lodge and our second Christmas there. It just doesn't get any better! From the greeting at the front desk to the warm smiles and welcomes to the great room, we were treated like old friends. Sitting by the fire, sampling the 12 drinks of Christmas and eating the wondeful meals prepared by the chefs was totally indulgent. How could we top the view, the walks along the beach and watching the surfers ride the huge waves. We will be back.

Room Tip: Beachfront if you can. Our room was next to the Great Room and we never heard any noise!

Feelings of guilt for sneaking away at Christmas vanished as we pierced through the white snows of Sutton Pass, arrived at the Lodge and welcomed by the front desk and our heads filled with the heavenly scents from the kitchen of fresh Christmas goodies.

Santa came early! The Lodge smelled better as we walked up the stairs. We snuck a peak at the lights of the Great Room and then it was pure joy to enter room # 309 ! Cox Bay was boiling and the surfers crested on the water like raisins in a pudding. We knew it would all be perfect, and it was. We brought our own little Christmas tree decorated with sea shells.

The staff were wonderful and genuinely seemed to be delighted to work the holiday season. The BEST turkey dinner we have ever had! We wished we could stay longer to complete the tasting off all 12 drinks of Christmas. We are still hypnotized by memories of smiling staff, the warmth of the Great Room , the beauty of #309, and the steady thunder from the Bay.

It was a comfort to us that our recent stay for Christmas and our 10 year Anniversary was as exciting as our very first stay at the Lodge many years ago also # 309.

Thanks for everything ! We can’t wait to come back !
