“Wonderful Motel”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

My husband, teenage son, dog & I stayed at this motel for one night and wished we could have stayed longer! This was the nicest, cleanest, most comfortable & best motel we have ever stayed at and we have travelled all over North America, so this is saying a lot! The beds were the most comfortable ever, plenty of pillows, the room was so clean and smelled so fresh, a fridge, coffee pot, with more than enough coffee & other little accessories to make the stay perfect! The balcony that stretches the length of the room has a wonderful view of the harbor and the grounds are lush, green and tidy! It is close to everything you could need in Tofino and we couldn't have asked for anything more!

We stayed only one night at the Tofino and our room had plenty of space, was warm and in great shape. The balcony had a great view of the Harbour. It appears to me that there has been a lot of money recently spent on the property and whilst it appears like your typical 70's style motel the linen and amenities were more like something you would get at a 5 star hotel.

The young lady on the desk was very helpful recommending proprietor was very helpful pointing out places to visit and couple of excellent restaurants for dinner and breakfast. great places to eat.

I recommend staying in room 201 as it has an excellent view of the water. Great value and an excellent location.

Four of us were here recently. We had a two bedroom motel room that overlooked Tofino harbour.
The bathroom was huge and had both a shower and a soaker tub. The main room had two double beds as well as a table in it. A well equipped kitchenette was just off of this room. The balcony stretched across the whole width of the room. The second room had two single beds. It was perfect for our group that consisted of a couple, my 86 year old mother and myself.
I would highly recomend this motel to anyone staying in Tofino.

I spent 3 nights here over family day weekend with my mother. This very basic and low cost accommodation was extremely clean, in an excellent location and well worth the price. The rugs were so clean I felt the need to take off my shoes immediately as I entered the room. The view is amazing from the balcony, looking out onto the harbor. My major requirements are that there is heat, a working fridge, microwave and a coffee maker. Tofino Motel had all of these plus a few little goodies such as welcome candies, lots of towels and the use of earth friendly products for cleaning. PLUS...the pub and the bus station are both only a 5 min walk away! I would recommend this motel for anyone who is fussy about cleanliness but enjoys a no frills stay close to everything.

Friendly helpful owner who knows the area well.
Very clean accommodation at a reasonable rate. Good location overlooking the harbour and easy walking distance to good restaurants (try the Shelter restaurant for lunch or supper and Tough Beans for breakfast and coffee) or shopping.
We'll return.

My wife and I spent two nights at the Tofino Motel during the Oyster Festival. Our room was roomy and warm and everything was in excellent condition. The balcony had a great view of the Harbour and Meares Island beyond it. The linens were of high quality and there were plenty of towels and extra pillows and blankets. There was a small refrigerator and the usual motel coffee machine, but the coffee was dry fine quality.

The proprietor was very helpful and friendly pointing out interesting places to visit and great places to eat. She helped us to arrange a taxi to take us to dinner and to the Oyster Festival venues,

We had an utterly splendid dinner at the Wickanninish Inn preferring to invest our extra vacation dollars in the wonderful food at the Pointe Restaurant and we were quite content to leave the luxury of that great Chateaux et Relais hostelry to return to our very comfortable room

For the price we paid, I could not imagine a better place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room 201 - it is the end unit with the best view of the Harbour

Wow! Your review was in the best of 2013 for it's upbeat and informative tone. I remember the wonderful time you said was had at Wickannninish Inn's Pointe Restaurant dinner, and at the Oyster Festival. Please let us know you have stayed here before and sent in a review, as we have a VIP discount rate that would be offered. Thank you, and all the best in our new year.

This motel is ideally located for walking to most stores and restaurants in the village. The rooms are very clean and comfortable without frills. Lots of good towels and soaps, shampoos etc.
The pleasant balcony overlooks a lovely garden with views of the harbour, islands and mountains.
Great value!
