“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2006

The Tofino Motel was a great choice of motels in Tofino. It was clean and comfortable. It had a great location. It was in walking distance to restaurants, shops, and galleries. The manager was extremely knowledgeable about the area. She guided us to several places and was truly interested about our trip and experiences.

We stayed here for 2 nights - a very nice place, with great views from our balcony (see photo). The staff, esp. Petra (sorry I know that is wrong, but she'll know who she is hopefully!) was really nice and helpful. This place seems to be fully booked for most of the summer and you can see why. The only thing that we would have (and actually thought we did) have liked was a little kitchenette - but that was my fault for getting it mixed up with another place. We had bought our meal already on the way there so jerry-rigged a BBQ (see photo) and had a gourmet lobster tails and sweetcorn lunch alfresco on the lawn of the motel.

It is reasonably priced for Tofino, where all the accomodation is very expensive, is clean, has good facilities, in a great location, and the staff are brill.

Staff was most helpful
and informative at the front desk, and your room was , by far, the
cleanest and nicest we were in during our stay in British Columbia.
It was so relaxing to be in such a well kept room. You should be very
proud of your staff - they are obviously doing a fantastic job. We
also thoroughly enjoyed the free entertainment out on the balcony as
some resident bald eagles perched themselves in the tall tree next
door. I would definitely recommend your establishment to anyone I
know who is traveling to the West Coast. Thanks for a brief, yet
wonderful stay.

This motel was clean, had good size rooms with simply excellent views and a good location that enables you to stroll around Tofino. Definitely recommended.

This is where I stay whenever I go to Tofino (usually in the off season). They always seems to offer the lowest price in town, and not at the expense of quality. It's a nice 2-storey motel on Tofino's mainstreet, steps from whale watching, surf rentals (let the guys at the Long Beach Surf Shop hook you up), and restaurants (try the cozy Coffee Pod for breakfast...best coffee on the west coast, I swear!). I usually get a second floor room as they have a nice view of the harbour and Meares Island, and a balcony. Rooms are large, have all of the amenities, and are clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. I've never heard or been disturbed by my neighbours. The front desk staff are very helpful in arranging bookings and finding activities to do.

The Tofino Motel is not as fancy (or expensive!) as some in the area, but we enjoyed our room. Everything was clean, and all rooms have a balcony overlooking a small marina. We spotted 2 bald eagles in nearby trees just after we arrived. The location is within walking distance of shops & restaurants. We would stay here again.
