We did not have the opportunity to stay at Tofino Motel Harborview due to an error Hotels.com made when we booked it (it was no longer vacant). We were scheduled to arrive in Tofino on Canada Day weekend, when availability was extremely limited. The owner was kind, helpful, and efficient, and had arranged a room for us at another nearby lodge (with a similar lovely view)) that had only one room available on that busy weekend before we had even arrived. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay in Tofino, many thanks to Tofino Motel Harborview.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Tofino Motel. Be aware that it is a loooong drive from Nanaimo, and this was exacerbated for us by a bush fire next to the only Highway in and out of Tofino, which resulted in us being forced to return to Port Alberni to eat our evening meal there whilst we waited for it be cleared. There is NO ALTERNATIVE route. I phoned ahead to explain our situation to be greeted by a slightly incredulous lady on the other end of the phone. However, she stayed on late to meet us (normal office hours close at 8pm), and supplied us with maps, resort info, recommendations for all her family's restaurant businesses etc.

We were given the room with possibly the best view in the motel - the upper room nearest to the water. Nice views! However, I wouldn't recommend leaning too hard on the balcony railing! Also note that the balcony only gets sun in the morning.

Now, we may have made a misjudgement here, but we were under the impression that the rooms provided the facility to self cater if required. What they do possess is a fridge, coffee maker and microwave. There is no toaster, no plates, bowls or cutlery. Not even a single spoon, just wooden stirrers. This was a shame, as we had brought breakfast provisions with us from our previous accommodation. I ended up eating cereals out of the ashtray with a plastic spoon I got with a salad box. Quite how or what you are able to microwave, I'm not sure.

Anyway, kitchen facilities notwithstanding, we enjoyed our stay. The bed was comfy. It was quiet. Sound does not carry too much throughout the wooden building, and the location is good - just on the outer edge of the village, away from people leaving the restaurants.

Our Family Suite is the only room with a kitchenette inside, the standard rooms only provide with mini fridges and microwaves. Please do not hesitate to ask our Front Desk about bowls etc. But we took your suggestions and ordered bowls and real spoons for each room. Thank you for letting us know.

Hope to see you again at the Wild West Coast where the Ocean meets the Rain-forest. Let us know when you coming back "Special Return Guest Rate" We will be here when you get back.

We were traveling with our dog and were very welcomed in Tofino. The motel has lovely rooms with small balconies overlooking the beautiful harbor. It was immaculate with charming decor and thoughtful details. The staff were very helpful with suggestions and obviously love the town and wish to share it with visitors. Thank you all.. Would love to go back and spend longer.

My wife and I, two seniors recently stayed at TH for 2 nights in an upper room view view of water. Room was very nice and front desk staff, Ann and Andrea were particularly helpful with suggestions of hotels on East side of island. Location is excellent, near good eating places and park! A bit expensive but season is short.

Lovely clean and updated motel just steps away from town and the great myriad of restaurants. The beds were comfy, the room was clean - the only downside if staying for longer than a few nights was the lack of hanging space/drawers for clothes. The view of the harbour and inlet was beautiful. We were a little apprehensive about the traffic noise as Campbell Street is the main thoroughfare but we were not disturbed at all at night. Would stay again.
