The sights and sounds of the ocean right outside the door, the smell of fresh baking in kitchen and wonderful melt in your mouth meals, the very courteous and friendly staff, the comforts of the Great Room with the big overstuffed furniture and large stone fireplace... Can't wait to go back!

I have posted other great reviews of this location. It's definitely a 5 star. However I was very surprised to find that the new gift shop has no food/snack items. This is unheard of in resorts and hotels. No vending machines, no fruit bowl, no local granola bars. Literally no food, unless you want to sit in the restaurant. Very tricky between meals, and with small children and teens who needs snacks. I wish we would have known to bring our own food. It seems like very common practice to stock something for guests to take for hikes in other resorts we've stayed at. Disappointing.

Thank you for your review and your concerns around food service, this is something that we are working on to improve.
We are in the process of stocking the new gift shop with some food items, bars etc. We did not know initially what the demand would be. It is difficult to find companies that will supply vending machines in such a remote location. The last company we worked with have recently gone out of business.
With our new Chef, we are going to be providing take out lunches and snacks for our hotel guests who wish to be away from the hotel enjoying activities during the day.
I am concerned that you found the staff to be unfriendly, this is not a common experience at the Lodge.

Loved loved loved Long Beach Lodge Reort. We stayed in one of the cabins last May for just one night (time restrictions) and want to go back and staylonger. Loved the coziness of the cabin as well as how clean it was - inside and out. First time in BC for me and can't wait to go back and stay longer. Food in the main lodge was amazing and everyone was so friendly. The beach was awesome and loved climbing the rocks - made me feel like I was 6 again.

Room Tip: Book a cabin...it's like home away from home. So beautiful.

Stayed three nights in a cabin. Very nice and well appointed. Having your own personal hot tub to jump into after exploring the beaches is fabulous. Good pet friendly place to stay. We didn't dine on sight but went into town to explore the many local, awesome places to eat and grab treats. I don't think you can go wrong staying at the LBLR.

Thank you for your positive response, we are doing some upgrading in the cottages this string, to make them even more special.
While you said you did not dine in the Dining room, I am hoping you enjoyed our hand crafted continental buffet breakfast , included in your room rate.
Next visit I would reccommend that you try our our dining experience, there is a wonderful variety of fresh and local food, served in the most beautiful setting on the West Coast.

This was our second visit to the Long Beach Lodge Resort and about our 10th visit to Tofino in the last twenty years. It was a short, 3 night break as part of a winter get-a-way to Vancouver Island. We had an ocean view room with a fire place and a balcony and it was exactly what we wanted. While it was busy on the Sunday we checked in ( it was the first Family Day long weekedn holiday in BC) thing got a lot quieter as people headed home on Monday.

The highlights of the visit were;
- The booking process worked really well as we had booked one day and then found that the Resort had offered a new promo rate the next day and they were more than willing to give us the new rate when we called (without penalty).
- the staff was very good, being both friendly and helpful and not afraid to engage in a conversation. They were a high point.
- the hotel is about 13 years old and in a couple of subtle ways is showing its age. Furniture was a little warn in the great room. Nothing serious but attention will be needed soon.
- The continental breakfast is very good and adds to the value of the stay.
- The other food and beverage offerings are ok but very expensive. $30+ for a pan seared salmon is a little on the high side, especially if the salmoon is raw on the inside. One afternoon we stoped by for a glass of wine and a cheese plate as a snack and we left with a bill for $72 - this was on the wrong side of the value curve!
- The Great Room is still the highlight of the common areas and is a wonderful place to while a way a couple of hours.
- The beach at Cox Bay is a great place to walk off breakfast. The sun down on the beach can be spectacular if the clouds take a break. Watching the dogs play and new surfers hard at their lessons made the beach strolls even more enjoyable!

A great place to spend a few winter days by the ocean - and not have to worry about sun burns!

Thank you for your return visit to the Lodge. We are very proud of our staff and the service they so willingly provide.
The Lodge is now going into it's 11th year of service. None of the Great Room furniture, you refer to has been in service over 6 years. Furniture is public spaces take a huge amount of wear. We are again replacing a lot of furniture this spring, not that it is worn, but because we wish to change the colour scheme, to introduce some more warner colours.
I hope you will enjoy the changes.

This was our fifth stay at this property. We have stayed at three others in town and this is by far our favourite. Rooms are nicely done, not quite as nice as the rooms at the Wick but are much better value. It is worth it to try for a partial or ocean view so you can see, smell and hear the waves. The great room is really what makes it for us. A cozy but elegant space to watch everything going on outside in comfort. It is really worth while to have a restaurant on the property if you get so cozy you don't feel like driving into Tofino for dinner you are set. Every meal we have had has been excellent. Staff are wonderful too. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Go for partial ocean view or ocean view room. For families the cottages are a great set up.

Look no further this resort is absolutely the best choice!

This was our first trip to Tofino the cottage is gorgeous and has every ammenity.

The food is outstanding. THe service is amazing. I noticed the staff in the kitchen are so happy and take care with every detail.
The complimentary breakfast is the quality of a fine tea with gorgeous baked scones and breads.

We highly reccomend the mussels. This resort has the most beautiful beach. Perfect for small kids they dicovered starfish and sandollars. This resort is also very accomadating to dogs our dog had the time of his life.

You will be welcomed by warm gracious staff who truly care.
