Reviewed November 11, 2013

Very welcoming staff throughout. Service from reception to restaurant folks was excellent. They take the dog-friendly claim seriously and indeed pampered our dog with all the amenities a pet would need. A few steps to the beach and the fun begins. Quality and service for dinner in the restaurant was excellent. The included continental breakfast was ample with a very good selection - but the cinnamon buns may be gone after our visit.

Thank you for your comments, I am delighted that you enjoyed the week-end, pretty nice weather for November! I am glad that you found the service to be excellent, we have a wonderful staff, who try their very best. Our pups want to go to the beach the minute we arrive! I have never seen a dog fight on the beach, they just all seem so relaxed.

Stayed here based on strong Trip Advisor reviews...feel as though we paid a bit of a premium because of the high score. Hotel was good but maybe the reviews overhyped because of the reviews but if I just came here with no reviews, I'd be very pleased.

The good: location, the rooms, the bed, the fireplace, the size of the bathrooms, the front desk, the food, the facilities

The bad: no phone service, unbearably slow wifi (bad when you've got some work things to do), very small shower (not sure why...the bathrooms are nice and big!)

The huh?: service in the restaurant was at times forgetful (i.e. order a drink, comes after the meal...got seated and forgotten a couple of times). Also, alarms weren't reset in the room so 6 am, alarm blasted us awake!

Thank you for your review. Please be assured that there is no relationship between ratings and rates. If that were the case, higher priced properties would rate above us. The telephone service, supplied by Telus is great, however the wifi service in Tofino is not. Last year we switched to Shaw Sat, which is better than the local provider but still quite spotty. Telus has agreed to provide wifi service to the West Coast, including Tofino, but this is still two years away. As I write, the SHOWERS ARE BEING REPLACED with larger ones, we hope to have them all replaced by the New Year. I will mention your concerns to our diningroom manager, as your experience is not consistant with our normal great service.

From the reception desk to the housekeeping, the staff was cordial and very friendly.We stayed in a cottage and it was very clean and inviting. Our dog Stevie loved the fire place, it kept us warm and cozy. We never felt like we were visiting for the weekend, it felt like home. The ground were well kept and clean. The amenities and their staff were great. We will recommend it to all our friends and we will stay there again.

This trip was our 3rd trip to Long Beach Lodge. Our wedding was hosted at the Lodge in 2007 and our return in 2013 was equally enjoyable. The staff are genuine and go the extra miles to make sure you enjoy your stay.

Great resort, great location, great food.
It is my wife's favorite getaway.
What more can I say that others have not said before me.
Great casual atmosphere. The Great Room is to die for. We can just sit in there and enjoy the day watching the ocean. Want to relax? This is the place to do it!
Nough said!

Room Tip: An oceanview room is best but you can enjoy the view from the great room at any time. We prefer top...

Great location on the Cove Bay Beach. Booked a partial view Oceanside room with breakfast included for $229. Thoughtful touches throughout - complimentary nuts with afternoon cocktails and rain slickers in the guest room closets. Would definitely stay here again - possibly grab a cottage instead with a larger group.

Room Tip: partial view is approx. $50-60 cheaper than full view and you still get a great vista over the beach...

Thank you for your review. Your make a good point regarding our partial view rooms; the view is still pretty awesome. I always remember booking a room billed as a partial view room in Hawaii, if you hung precariously over the balcony rail, you got a tiny glimpse of the ocean!

We recently stayed in one of the Rain Forest cottages at the Long Beach Lodge in Tofino. What an enchanting few days...incredible weather, wonderful service, superior accommodation, amazing sunsets and of course the overall ambiance of this magical place. I'd like to comment about the arrangements made in advance of our visit to attend our every need. We had made very specific requests regarding our daily activity which other resorts had not attempted to provide for us. The attitude of the staff here was to try in every way to make our stay as positive as possible; everything we had asked for was provided. We also had our dog with us and I can definitely state that this is a dog-friendly place! What a paradise for any pet. The Great Room in the Lodge is one of the most relaxing and spectacular places in which to wile away some hours... easy to forget that time is slipping by. Don't hesitate to visit this resort. My only regret was that we had to leave and I can attest to the fact that this was not our first visit to Long Beach Lodge, nor will it be our last.
