Our travel agents could only offer this one hotel near Tofino but even though the hotel was very pink and old fashioned at the time of booking, we figured that it was just a place to sleep and have breakfast so we didn't mind. We were quite pleased when the hotel changed hands and the pink was eradicated! What we weren't pleased about was being told at check-in that the restaurant still wasn't available - 6 months after the takeover, we feel that it should have been a priority - particularly in time for the Summer season. It was a nuisance having to go out to find a supermarket after a very long and tiring day travelling, in order to find plastic bowls, cutlery and cereal for breakfast the following 2 mornings.
Our twin room was very large, clean and comfortable with a nice path at the back that led through the forest to the inlet. The hotel is easy to find on the main road to Tofino and there is a very large car park.
Not so good points; no kettle and an extremely small area to make drinks or breakfast. No iron/ironing board in the room. No basin plug and the basin had a large crack in it. We could not lock the back door from the outside if we wanted to walk to the inlet and although there is obscure glass on the back door I feel a curtain or blind should be fitted to give more privacy to the room. No mirror in the bedroom. The doors are very thin and we were disturbed constantly by people talking in the corridor.
All in all, I probably would not recommend this hotel as it is at the moment but hopefully by next Summer all the niggles will be sorted and I may return for another look.
