Whale's Tail Guest Suites
Ranked #8 of 11 Hotels in Ucluelet
Reviewed July 16, 2011

I left a review for the West Coast Motel when in fact I was here. This is the annex of the West Coast Motel where they have their suites. It is about 150 hundred yards as the crow flies from the West Coast Motel.
As I said, it was very pleasant, with full amenities and very welcoming hotel staff.
I would definitely return here.

Stayed: July 2011, traveled with family

My wife and I spent the last 3 days of June at the Whale's Tail suite, and 3 nights or more reduces the already great price another 10%. No view, but very quiet, and within walking distance to grocery, BC liquor store, local galleries etc., but we did enjoy the company of 2 deer on our semi private yard on two nights. No phone, but free Wifi, cable TV, and with our cell phones, not required. Comfy queen size bed, and full kitchen. We went for walks every day; Wild Pacific Trail, Long Beach, or the great 1km boardwalk meandering through old growth to the Schooner Cove on Long Beach. Tofino (30 min, drive away) made for a nice visit and lunch.
At the end of the day, and after dining out for lunch, (ie. Wickaninnish restaurant on the beach), it was great to come back to our own kitchen with groceries from the local Co-op, and the maids always had the rooms spotless.
The office is actually in a hotel a block away, where there is also a clean indoor pool, and a very large (50 machines or so) fitness/workout area. Ask for the community pass, which is free to guests fo the hotel/suites, and you can access the facilities at 6 am, otherwise your room card will give you access after 9 am. Also, there was a free front end washer and dryer next door to our unit.
An excellent home away from home, with a 1/3 the cost.
Very accomodating staff.
