We stayed in one of the cottages for five nights. A very pleasant stay. The cottages are not ocean front, and they are located along the drive into the lodge, so there is a view out the front window of the parking lot. On the downside, they are a bit anonymous -- like an upscale condo; on the upside, everything is in good taste and well-equipped (scrabble/monopoly games; hot tub on the terrace; dvd player; free highspeed internet access; free local 800 number calls). I have read several complaints about the service; in my opinion, they are not merited. We had excellent service on all fronts; when we ate at the restaurant, we were a bit of a pain about wanting to sit oceanside (they don't take reservations for specific tables) and asked to switch after we were seated. The staff was gracious about the change. I wonder if some of the problems may result from the fact that most of the staff seem to be surfers who are doing their waitstaff/hotel staff jobs in order to support their surfing habit (a comment I had about other restaurants/hotels in the areas). If you are looking for a funky experience, you might want to try elsewhere (Middle Beach Lodge in Tofino and Terrace Beach Lodge in Ucluelet seemed like options), but if you want relaxation and comfort, this is a great stay.

We made the drive from Campbell River where we had been fleased at one of those "Fishing Resorts". Our guide (an honest soul) had warned us, that rock cod, not the promised salmon was our best hope. We cancelled the rest of our plans there,left and desided Tofino, sounded interesting. Ariving around 4pm without any knoledge of the area we saw the sign and felt we should check it out. Now I understand why you antheim starts with O Canada. Friendly, Clean, Accomidating an the food was some of the best we have ever tried. We fell in love with the area and are planning on returning soon.

Where do I begin.... The resort staff went above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable. I requested items upon my arrival and they were done on time. The resort is very clean and upscale. The great room is a great place to have pizza, play a game and enjoy the views and fireplace.
The rooms were superb and clean. We stayed in a ocean view room and it was incredible. the view from the bacolony was incredible and relaxing. We had the oportunity to witness a storm and the waves in the ocean were spectacular. The meals were great and delicious. We will go there again..

We wanted to say that we had an amazing stay at Long Beach Lodge last week. We traveled with friends from Kelowna and were so proud to show them this island paradise - not only is Tofino breathtaking but we found the service, ambiance and caring attitude of the staff at Long Beach Lodge above the rest. We were concerned when we read previous reviews but we called ahead and discussed our concerns and were treated with respect - and the outcome was worth it..the resort lived up to the all the positive reviews listed below and we encourage you to call ahead if you are concerned..it is worth it!

This hotel has to be one of the most wonderful I have ever stayed at.
True it was my honeymoon - but the service, rooms and staff were wonderful. They even upgraded us to a full sea view and champagne it the room was a real treat. The great room is a lovely place to sit by the fire, eat pizza, drink wine and relax. We actually prefered eating here to eating in the restaurant. There was a bit if a fraccas one night - I think it was to do with the seats overlooking the bay! - but it was dealt with calmly and proffesionally by the staff, and felt completely out of character with the lodge. We ate at the Wikaninnish (sp?) which was great - but there was no lounge there which we thought was a bit of a missing The location is truly amzing - primordial would describe it best. I almost expected to see dinosaurs wandering out of the forest. One word of warning - watch out for the waves when stading on the logs.It's true they can be very dangerous as two sodden british honeymooners found out!
