“Perfect Accomodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We arrived a the the West Cost Motel at the last minute when a our previous accommodation did not work out. We were warmly greeted by Jeff and Brenda, the owners, who made every effort to provide us a room for the night. We intended on staying in this beautiful coastal village two nights; however, Jeff and Brenda could not promise us the second night. What they did promise was if there was no room at their motel, they assured us that they would find us somewhere in town to stay. As is it turned out, we were able to stay the second night at their motel. We were grateful for this. The rooms were spacious and clean and had a fabulous view of the harbour. On our final day in Ucluelet, we went kayaking after we had already checked out. Once again, Jeff and Brenda demonstrated excellent customer service by permitting us to use the change room facilities at the adjoining fitness centre to clean up before we hit the road. We would certainly return to the West Coast Motel!

Hello you two!

So happy the place fit your needs so well! It's great we were able to keep you the second night, due to a cancellation, but we definitely would have made sure you had somewhere comfortable, if we did have to refer you elsewhere. Wasn't the kayaking incredible? We hope you can come relax here again soon. Thanks a bunch!

What a wonderful time we had! Our room was spotless, quiet, amazing habour view, and you will get the best sleep of your life on the comfy beds. Can't wait for our next trip to Ucluelet and of course we'll be staying at the West Coast Motel on the Habour...

We chose this motel on the basis of TA reviews and were not disappointed. The rooms are large and very clean! the location is good as you come into town. There is a nice view of the harbour (albeit there is a car park in front).

As others have said, Jeff and Brenda are helpful to a fault. we were almost overwhelmed with information about sights and restaurants - all of it most useful, even if it was hard to process all the information at once! Jeff is a great salesperson for this town and we did agree with him that it was a much nicer, quieter place to stay than Tofino and the walks are superb. So its- yes if you can Vancover Island go to Ucluelet and stay at this motel. I doubt that you could do better on either count. We ate at Mattersons both nights it was so good- and value for money. Also the little acquarium is a star

Room Tip: Ask for a room where you go in on the level but look over the harbour.

We were travelling as a group of 10 and stayed 2 nights in this wonderful motel. Jeff, Brenda and all the staff were wonderful. Great place in a great location steps from the harbor and close to town. We made use of the bbq area as we cooked up the salmon we caught that day. Very clean and great value. Thanks again to Jeff & Brenda for their hospitality, we felt very much at home.

We loved having your large group with us. Your enthusiasm and fun-factor are contagious. The BBQ goodies you all shared in our cook shack looked fantastic. Jeff and I hope you can make your way out this way again soon!

The owner, Jeff was very helpful, giving personal attention to each guest. He was busy as his wife was away, but he coped with running the motel very well. The small rooms are really small. The barbecue in the garden was awesome.

Hello Roadrunner

Thank you ever so much for coming! I am sorry I did not get a chance to meet you, as I had to go out of town overnight. Glad to hear Jeff was a charming host and that you enjoyed our place. We hope that, on day, you can make it back here some day. We hope the rest of your holidays were fantastic!

Happy travels.

I would like to start my review by thanking Jeff and Brenda for being such kind, trusting, and genuine people. In this day and age, people like these are few and far between. Being a business owner and legal professional, I know all too well that situations arise, but I was not expecting the plethora of events that took place. The work vehicle broke down and my husband was stranded. Not to mention he had his wallet go missing. My husband was tired and frustrated. Brenda was kind and compassionate about our situation and allowed me to pay on the phone with my credit card and her husband assisted in helping repair the vehicle so that we could get it home. The accommodations were clean and well looked after. There is a lack of pride in ownership an customer service these days and I can honestly say these two have restored my faith in a sense, by going above and beyond the call of duty an our expectations...... we are truly grateful and we will definitely return.. THANK YOU, Tina and Dennis. ..

Great little motel with a good view, and within walking distance to everything you need. The rooms are basic, but you do not go without. Brenda and Jeff really bump everything up a notch - they are passionate, energetic and they really care about their guests. They are extremely helpful and accommodating - especially with our 6 year old son.
Thanks Brenda and Jeff for making it an awesome stay!
