“Absolutely stunning”
Reviewed January 18, 2011

We stayed at the Long Beach Lodge a few days before Christmas with some family for a few nights and to sum it up in one word - perfect!

The accommodations in the cabins/chalets were fantastic. Great style, excellent vibe, comfortable and clean. The lodge itself, along with its delicious, "all pleasing" food, had great, friendly staff that really fit into the whole feel of the resort.

Not only were the service and people great, the land that the lodge sits on, and the water it sits next to blew us away. Absolutely stunning.

Don't let the drive to the west coast turn you away, it's absolutely worth it - and the drive itself is actually quite nice as well. I would return to the Long Beach Lodge Resort any day I could for however long I could because it is an absolute gem.

Probably the nicest place we have stayed at in a very long time. I cannot do anything but provide glowing comments on all aspects....right down providing rain gear in our rooms :-) Every detail has been thought of.

Loved Tofino and loved the LBL . The staff were terrific and the beach was so beautiful. We were so impressed with the food and the complimentary breakfast most of it fresh baked goods. The room was so cozy with the gas fireplace and the scene from our room breathtaking. Lovely decor and neat and clean. The great room overlooking ocean was such a nice place to relax, read and have an appie or drink.....all in all a great getaway.

We stayed for 4 nights over Christmas. We stayed in the lodge, not the cottages, and these comments apply to the lodge.

This hotel has a magnificent location, and the weather was perfect Pacific Northwest Winter weather -- big rain, heavy wind, amazing surf. We sat inside with our fireplace running, reading quietly and watching the surf. The hotel equips each room with umbrellas and waterproof raincoats, so we were able to go out and walk in the beautiful trails around the park, but we had come to Tofino to rest, and rest we did. The staff is very well trained, and empowered to solve problems, though there were few problems. The wi-fi is a bit fussy, but when I called down, somebody showed up at the door within 2 minutes with an ethernet cable; we had too few pillows, and when I called down to ask for more, somebody showed up almost as soon as I hung up.

One minor hiccup: an occasional longish wait to be seated for a meal (but when I mentioned this to the dining room manager, the four of us were comped for our next meal).

Another hiccup: the bathroom is not well designed. The stone floor is COLD, the sink is high up and difficult to reach unless you have long legs, and the shower stall is rather small, and has only a tiny shelf for soaps and shampoos. My feeling was that the bathroom was designed and built by somebody who did not also have to use it. Not a serious issue, but it could have been solved easily with extra bathmats and one of those hanging things for the shower amenities.

The room was kept beautifully by the housekeeping staff, who were friendly and unfailingly cheerful. In fact, "friendly and unfailingly cheerful" just about sums up this marvelous hotel.

Long Beach Lodge is amazing!!! Their staff is so wonderful and warm, they treated us like family. Which was nice because we needed a break from the crazyness of ours. :) The view is stunning! Best in the country. Oh and not to mention the resturant staff. Top notch service and food. Best drinks I've ever had!!! Love this joint.

I would recommend this venue to anyone it was outstanding.
We had a winter storm on Cox bay with surfers and the food and view the service was outstanding

You couldn't find this venue anyway in canada and perhaps the world

Our arrangements were made with Krystal A. and she got us an excellant room. We even got a little snow and were able to watch people surfing in a snowstorm right in front of our window. Staff was exceptionally friendly and service was first rate. A very quiet, comfortable spotless room with world class views. An outstanding experience!!!!
