“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

We stayed in Cottage 18 - clean, quiet, and comfortable! The staff welcomed us and was available to arrange a spa visit. The views from the Great Room were amazing. We were unable to ignore the pull of the ocean and spent much time walking the beach and grounds. Our cottage had warm fireplace that kept the chill from us after a dip in the hot tub.

Stretching the long weekend was the plan, so we decided to head to the Pacific Rim Park on Vancouver Island. The towns that bookend the park are Ucluelet to the south and Tofino to the north. There are lots of places to stay in these places but we chose Long Beach Lodge and Resort. It was a great choice. It has that ski hill flavor only instead of skiers you have some of the most bravest of surfers. Yes this is Canada's surfing Mecca. No I don't surf. The room was large and had a fair size bathroom with a nice large soaker tub for two. We had a great view of Cox Beach from our room and loved listening to the surf on the beach. The lounge was just a few doors down from our room and the bartenders were awesome (Davin & Chris). This place is a must for that getaway for that special weekend or weekday (for a more quieter trip maybe?) or storm watching. Drive down to Ucluelet and Amphtrite Lighthouse great spot for watching those big waves pulverizing the rocks. Just go already!!

I am delighted that you enjoyed your cottage visit. This week the cottages are closed for renovations, we are instaling new kitchen cabinets so that we can add dishwashes and new fridges. We will also be adding patio furnature, to most cottages, so that guests my dine outside in nice weather. I hope you will visit us again soon.

We had the pleasure of staying 2 nights in cabin 14 (quiet and one of the furthest cabins from the main lodge) at Long Beach Lodge the first weekend in February (BC Family Day Long Weekend). Our 10-year old daughter brought her best friend along and it was a huge success. The girls had their very own bedroom and bathroom upstairs, which was super cool for them (and us). We would like to see a few more channels available and also a DVD player on the upstairs TV would have been great too. My husband and I had our own room and bathroom downstairs, along with access to our private hot tub. The main building was only a 1 minute walk down the quiet drive in. The Great Room breakfast buffet was another big hit with the girls. Their only complaint was not enough hot croissants or the occasional person budding in front of them in line. Our server at dinner the first night was fantastic; our server the second night was not quite as good - we felt rushed. Access to the beach is a real bonus. The beach is superb for walking, beach combing, and sight-seeing. Overall we were pleased with our stay at Long Beach Lodge. We will be back again.

Room Tip: Cabin 14 is the furthest away from the main lodge. Nice and quiet.

Thank you or your review, I am dilighted that your family had a wonderful stay, it was great that your daughter could bring her friend. We often act on good suggestions from guests and we will take your idea and install DVD's in the upper cottge bedrooms. This next week we are closing the cottages and installing stainless steel dishwashers and refrigeraters. Also, we will be adding furniture to most of the patios, so cottage guests may dine outside. We will look forward to your next visit.

We had a very pleasant stay, From the welcome to the room setup, everything was beautiful, clean and ready for our check in. We made the trip from Abbotsford and were ready for a nap at the time of arrival, but the view was too spectacular to ignore! The location and design of the main building is just perfect.
It was my fourth time in Tofino and third stay in the Lodge. I will be back again.

A pleasant and relaxing winter break, beach walking and storm watching. Comfortable room partial sea view (worth the extra $$). We were on a "3 for the price of 2" nights as long one night is a Tuesday - good value. Included adequate continental breakfast. Room clean, comfortable, warm with gas fireplace (nice for winter evenings). Food in restaurant overall good quality, good selection of wines and craft beers. Staff in all cases were attentive and friendly, nice pleasant atmosphere.

Room Tip: Get second or third floor for the view.

My work seems to always get in the way of our get-a-way times, so when my wife booked a week off a month or so go, we decided to try to get away and selected the Long Beach Resort due to us having a dog.

We chose to stay in a cottage (B+), which was very nice, but I gave it a B+ due to a loose toilet seat, and a burnt out light bulb, and as we had a dog, we were on the side next to the public boardwalk and when the surf is running, so are all the surfers.

We were early for check in, so we walked along the very peaceful Cox Bay beach. I would really like to return to this beach for the summer as it looks like a great place to be.

Returning from the beach, we were still early, so the lodge bought us a drink in the Great Room (A+). Room was ready on time, we were just early, so thanks to the front line staff for the offer.

The wait staff were great and I can only give you an (A-), ladies please take the guys aside and show them how it is done.

Cleaning staff were at our door each morning, though we did not require their services so kudos to the team.

There is a continental breakfast, so on our second morning we ordered some eggs to add some protein to our carb rich meal, so a (B+) for that.

The resort had a three day special which included a free night if that night included a Tuesday. This is the reason we booked the resort, however, we had to leave Tuesday evening for a business issue and on checkout we were charged for all three nights. The onus was on us to inform the staff that we were taking advantage of the offer that we confirmed when we booked the room.

They fixed the bill, but for that you get a (D).

However, we do at some point plan to return. I want to meet the owner and learn of his story from building houses to building the resort

I am sorry your room was not perfect for you, one of my projects, this year, is to to make sure that maintenance is not missing anything and that the rooms perfect when guests arrive. We are doing away with the buffet, by the end of the month, as a number of guests are no longer happy with it. Regarding your check out, the onus was not on you to inform us that you were on the Tuesday Free package. An agent, no longer working at the Lodge, made a mistake, at the time of booking and failed to note you were on the special. Thank you for your comments, and I am glad that overall, you injoyed your visit.

I have heard very good things about this resort and that's why I picked it for our family trip. The room was clean and had a great ocean view. However -

Our room was next to the restaurant, and it was noisy during the nighttime. We were told that there was a room in between the restaurant and our room to buffer the noise, not sure if that really worked though.

The heater in the bathroom was broken, and it was freezing cold there.

The fitness centre was located in another building, and you have to cross the parking lot in order to get to there.

During the checkout, I expressed some of my concerns to the staff at front desk, but the response was lukewarm.

Was it a nice place? Yes.

Was it worth $300 per night after tax? Absolutely No.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms on the second floor if you prefer quietness.

i am very sorry your experience was not similar to the vast majority of our guests. The dining room is completely empty by 10pm, so there is never any noise during the night time. There shouldn't really be any noise, even during operating hours . If there is ever any problem in your room, all you need to do is call the front desk, and the concern will be addressed immediately. I don't understand how a short walk to a fitness centre should be a problem! We moved the fitness centre, out of the hotel and into a separate building, a few years ago, because a fitness room can be noisy.
