“Friendly and helpful staff, great spot in Ucluelet”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst kayaking, and it was great. The staff were really friendly and helpful, advised us on how to get to the kayaking, all the details on it, what sort of places there where to eat, all that sort of thing. They even suggested a really nice walk that fitted in well with the other things we were doing. The hotel is in a good spot, just above the harbour so you have some good views, and is 1-10 minutes walk from all the restaurants / cafes / shops you might want to visit, so you can walk rather than having to drive which was nice.

Stayed at West Coast Motel for 3 nights in June and could not have been more pleased with our decision.. If in town for fishing it it the best location to the boat harbor. We were on the boat in less than 3 minute walk from room to boat. Wonderful owners were so helpful in directing us with local attractions, and everything is in walking distance. The motels website is spot on accurate. Super comfortable rooms,great views, great value!

Other than the pretty hard beds, this is a great place to stay. Super nice owners, great little kitchen, 2 good televisions, a fitness center and easy location. The price was right. I'd stay there again for sure.

We thank you for coming and are thankful you recommend us to others. Most people seem to love our Serta Master sleepers (new beds). If you come back again, we do have a foam topper that we can add to the top, for those that prefer a soft bed. We hope to see you back again soon!!

The motel is on the harbour and in a central location in the town. Our room was fresh, clean and looked like it had recently been refurnished. We didn't get to try them but gym, swimming pool and sauna were also available. Couldn't fault it.

Thank you for coming and taking time to write a review. It made our day today to know that you enjoyed your visit.

Yes, most of our units have been renovated (we purchased this "fixer-upper" in 2006) and we are constantly working on keeping our units nice. Our next big project will be the exterior of the motel - redoing siding, windows, doors and stairways over the next couple of years, after recently receiving development approval from town council. We hope that you will come back again and visit us soon!

In May 2012 we stayed in this Motel for 2 nights and it was fantastic. We were upgraded to the little green cottage and we loved it. The view was fantastic and as I love taking photo's I could just sit on the patio and take photo's of all the activities on the harbour.
When we arrive we were welcomed by a young girl which is the best PRO a place can have She informed us of all the hikes, sights and places to eat and all the other things to do and see and where all the shops are. What a pleasure to deal with someone like that.
The room was very comfortable and spacious. The fully equiped kitchen was very nice and the bonus was the laundry as we have been on the road for 7 days already.
I will recommend this place to anyone going to Ucluelet.
I would love to come and stay again the distance from home is just to far to come for a relaxing week or weekend, but we will always remember our stay there.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming! What wonderful things you had to say - the feedback is so appreciated. Our staff are the backbone of our business and they love to hear that their efforts are noticed. Without them, we would not have a successful accommodation business. We do hope that some day, you can find your way back to this part of the world.

After camping for a while we wanted the comfort of a hotel. West coast motel was well priced, well located, and the swimming pool and sauna was a great addition to our comfort.
One positive aspect needs to be pointed out: the friendliness and knowledge of the reception staff: outstanding!
Go there and see it for yourself!
