The staff can be very friendly the prices are cheaper than other camp grounds And hotels in town(so sure its not as nice but its certinly comparable) and if you are there to fish and enjoy town you cant beat the location. The rooms are on the shabby side and i am sure havent been updated for 20+ years but the staff keeps them clean from what i saw the linens are clean not new but cleaned well and they allow pets(one cleaning girl actually offered to walk our friends dog when she was off work while we were out fishing) We rv camp but had friends stay in a room Its not a luxury resort by anyones standards but it does the trick and thats why we keep going back with friends that both camp and rent rooms every year and like to go here.

The bank now owns this property as the owners could not make their mortgage payments. For 30 dollars a night we got to camp in a parking lot with no privacy or view. The washroom facilities are disgusting and rarely cleaned. All of the sanitary disposal bins in the ladies washroom were packed full! My friend left a piece of paper towel on the washroom floor, and it wasn't picked up for 3 days. Apparently this used to be a nice place, but not anymore. For the same price you can camp at Wya Point with privacy and an ocean view. That is where we are going next year.

I booked our rv site in oct 2011 for the following year as we required full service for 5 days. In feb they called to say they were moving us, as another client wanted the site for 3 months. they offered for us to cancel with no Penalty charges, so I asked what will they do for us, they gave us a hotel room that you have to drive to to shower and use toilet facilities. (in the room there was a dirty face cloth that hung over the rod for the shower curtain for 3 days then I put it on the floor. It is a very old and run down place. Our power kept blowing a fuse and my husband would have to go and reset it, he was told that it was brand new wiring. the only thing with power being used was our fridge and a light in the trailer at the time. When I spoke to them on the phone I asked how close they were to the new community center, as we thought it would be nice to walk back and forth, I was told it was 5 minutes away, wrong! It would have been 25 minimum and it was up hill.
The worst part was the site we originally had sat empty for 4 of the 5 nights we were there.

I had also booked a room in the motel for another family member, and they had to buy air freshners as the room stunk like stale air, not fresh like it had been cleaned etc.

The office staff had no idea who had done what or when,

I would not reccomend this place to my worst nightmare.
Poor business practices

We stayed at Island West Motel Last year and enjoyed our stay and the friendly staff. The
rooms were older but very clean and the best value for our money in the area. It is located in the middle of Ucluelet so enjoyed being
able to walk to everything. Ate in the Pub, had great food and watched the beautiful view from
the huge windows overlooking the water.

My husband and I booked a campsite here over the phone and we were told that we were getting an excellent, large site on the water. To our surprise when we arrived and settled in, we were asked to move over so someone else to share our site. We asked for a better site where we didn't have to be on top of another unit and there wasn't anything better at the resort unless camping in the parking lot is considered better at $32/night. We asked for a refund but were refused! Stay clear! Plus, the photos on their website are quite old and were taken before the resort fell apart. If there was a half point rating then I would give that!

This place is listed as a resort and the picture of the room on their website is mis-leading. After checking in my family and I found this out. The rooms are smelly, the towels are disgusting and brown, the room had bugs all over it, the bed had stains and hairs from previous guests. Also the cancellation policy which is in small print states that they require 30 days notice for a partial refund and at time of check in, they require you to pay for the whole stay upfront. Unheard of from any resort. After checking around with the locals, this place is well known as a dive. STAY CLEAR!!! Staff are un-educated and un-friendly as well. Manager will not address concerns and no refund will be given. THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE!!!

My husband and son are avid salmon fisherman. We took are boat up for a few days so they could fish while I tooled around the town. While the location is great not only from a fishing standpoint but just in general, the rooms are not pleasant. The place is run down and depressing!
