The place is beautiful. We were in a penthouse (third floor!) and had a beautiful view of the beach. The food was good at lunch and dinner. The breakfast buffet (included) was pretty lame, but for $12 you could add eggs, bacon etc. Seemed a little cheeky to charge for a few eggs.....
It was an absolutely lovely place to stay and my only complaint is that I didn't really understand Tofino when I booked it. The lodge is about 7 km out of town, so unless you want to drive into town for a different meal, you're eating at their restaurant every day. And the food was good, but three days was too long for my husband and me and our 20 year old son.
Prior to that we stayed one night at the House of Himwitsa, and after that we stayed two nights at the Wickininnish Inn.
I'd recommend Long Beach Lodge for honeymooners and couples. I sat for hours out on the balcony and watched the waves roll in. So very relaxing and energizing at the same time. I will come back.
