“Great location and room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

this hotel is definitely a gem. great service and the room was clean, king bed was comfy and it had a jetted tub. Close to town and two great beaches. we loved it. the restaurant and bar are very nice and handy. the food was great. we would definitely return here. it's especially good for motorcyclists as you can park right underneath your hotel window if you want.

Room Tip: just ask when you book as they are very accommodating.

The hotel was fine, the food in the restaurant was very tasteful, the location is good.
We booked a room with a king bed and a sofa bed, because we are friends who want separate beds and no other room was available at the time of booking. However, the sofa bed wasn't comfortable at all, so we asked if perhaps another room would be available. There was, but then there was a hassle about the way we made our reservation.
Though we made our reservation last February directly through the hotel website, www.tofinorainforestinn.com, there is appareantly a link to ReservationCounter, who directly charged our creditcard in USD, without us knowing. The hotel itself has print outs from Expedia. Appareantly, the staff is not aware of this link to ReservationCounter/Expedia and went into a discussion with us. After this discussion and our explanation that we where not interested in a refund for the more expensive room we booked, we got our new twin room, in which we slept just fine.

Pros - cost, location, staff, cleanliness, tv's, AC, restaurant (staff, price and food)
Cons - parking, internet.... both could use some serious improvement.

Both the cons are not life threatening, but if they were fixed I would give a 5 star rating. The internet had full bars in my room but would do nothing once connected and once I had a good parking spot, I was reluctant to give it up.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of Jamie's Rainforest Inn!

We would like to say that we are disappointed that we could not provide Wi-Fi service that was up to your standard. Unfortunately due to our remoteness, there is very limited internet capacity. In an effort to provide the best Wi-Fi service possible we have purchased the largest bandwidth package available. Unfortunately, as you were staying with us during peak season, when our hotel is at maximum capacity, our bandwidth was divided amongst an unusually high volume of people. As a business we consistently look for any way to improve guest experiences but there is simply no way to rectify this problem until our providers add additional fiber optic cables so we can purchase more bandwidth.

In regards to our parking facilities, please be advised that we are in the process of improving those facilities. Thank you very much for your feedback!

Lastly, we are pleased to know that you enjoyed some of the other very positive features of our business such as: affordability, a great location, friendly staff, a high standard of cleanliness, and all of the onsite amenities that we offer to our guests.

We hope you will join us again!

Sincerely,

The Staff at Jamies Rainforest Inn

Stayed here for business. The location was a little but out of town but if you dont mind driving a few mins then it's not a problem. Rooms were pretty good for the price. Large rooms, nice bathroom and a fireplace/ac which gives you the option of hot and cold. The Inn is also beside a beautiful lake that floods and drains, makes for great scenery.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of Jamie's Rainforest Inn! It was wonderful to read all the positive things you had to say about our establishment.

We are glad that you did not find issue with our location, as being centrally located between a busy town site and the Pacific Rim National Park helps to create a more tranquil environment for our guests and also assists in a shorter commute to the Pacific Rim National Park.

We are also glad to hear that you were pleased with the room; we agree that choosing an upgraded room equipped with a more spacious bathroom and a fireplace makes for an enjoyable stay!

Lastly, we are very pleased you were able to enjoy our onsite trails along with a beautiful view of Tofino’s inlet passages.

We greatly look forward to welcoming you back someday! (Hopefully you will be on vacation, not on business.)

Sincerely,

The Staff at Jamie’s Rainforest Inn

My girlfriend and I spent 2 amazing nights at the lodge in May. Our rooms were cozy, quiet and the staff were friendly. Our server, Neil, have us great tips on activities and pointed us to the best spot to surf given our abilities. 2 thumbs up and a big thank you to Neil!

I stayed at the Inn for 5 days in early June and took advantage of a King size room with Kitchenette. The bed was incredibly comfortable and had 4 king-size pillows. The bathroom was well kept and had a comfy shower/tub combo and a separate sink gave me added space. I loved the fireplace and being on the ground floor gave me access to the gorgeous trail walks through the back of the property to the mud flats. The kitchenette had everything I needed and the floor plan included comfy seating with a table so I could enjoy meals in my room! I highly recommend the Lounge (who want's to eat in their room every night?) as they have incredibly fair prices, a delicious west coast menu, and friendly staff. They are close enough to town to enjoy the amenities and with a quick walk to Chesterman's Beach they are in the perfect location - I would recommend Jamie's Rainforest Inn to anyone!
