It is really hard getting a reasonable price place near Tofino. This place was expensive but cheaper then other places. It was okay for two nights but hard to justify what we charge but I guess this area of Vancouver has a limited time when tourist visit. Hotel was small, but clean and staff where friendly. The room was pretty...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. We appreciate your feedback. We have a great location here close to the shops, restaurants and trails. I’m sorry the view was not what you were hoping as we are located by a boat harbour. Being next door to the marina we do attract fisherman but also families with...

Wonderful location in town, warm and friendly folks at West Coast Motel. Quiet by design and reinforced as part of their hospitality culture. After an active day hiking Ucluelet and Tofino that quiet was much appreciated. Clean and basic appointments. Good WiFi. We had a terrific view of the harbor from Room 302. Highly recommend.

We were warmly greeted at check-in, and the young lady at the desk cheerfully gave us more information and recommendations for things to do and places to eat than we could handle! Our harbour-facing room was recently updated and featured a small but full kitchen and separate sitting and sleeping areas. It was attractive and comfortable. Hotel guests also get...

We were generally pleased with the features of our room. The kitchenette featured new appliances. The bathroom had recently been refurbished and there was new, "premiere vinyl" flooring in the bath and kitchenette. There were some deficits that took the shine off for us--1) Security--we couldn't get the windows in the unit to lock securely (and these windows were very...

This motel sits right where they advertise - on the harbor! The staff were super helpful and friendly during check-in, suggesting the best of all the local food and attractions.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in June, 2016. Our first impression of the room was not positive, smelling like old socks and mildew on the windows. The décor was decidedly 80s. With that said, the room has excellent Wi-Fi and the TV is good. The pool is absolutely amazing and is the perfect tonic after long walks....
