“Decent”
Reviewed 19 October 2007

This place sits on a beautiful harbor and there is just enough room on the balcony to fit two chairs and a little table.

The room was basic and clean, reasonably priced for Tofino, which means more then you would expect to pay elsewhere.

The helpful woman mentioned in previous reviews was nowhere in sight, replaced by a young 20-something guy who seemed kind of lost as how to run a hotel.
Don't leave your toothbrush and razor on the counter, he mentioned he wasn't going to wipe off a counter that "had that much stuff on it".
Huh? Excuse me? What the heck was I paying for and is that a reason not to clean the bathroom? Has he ever stayed in a hotel anywhere in his life? Do you talk to guests like that?

Our room was the closest to the harbor and farthest from the road, on the second floor. Ask for that room, can't remember the number.

An OK experience in a dramatically over priced, over hyped town.

Had a great stay in Tofino, we were lucky enough to miss the famous West Coast Rains. We made our own meals several time and shopped at the Tofino Co-op, good selection and the prices were not too out of line ( we discovered that when we were asked for our Co-op membership number at the register that #5134 allowed us to enjoy the discounts on the sales items). Would recommend the trip to anyone, great place rain or shine I expect.

This is a great motel located on the waters edge in beautiful Tofino. The lady that checked us in was helpful and friendly and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Each room has its own balcony with a water view. The Tofino motel is a minutes walk from restaurants, boat trips and shops.

I was a bit worried when I booked this hotel, since we usually stick to chains. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The lady who checked us in was very friendly and knowledgable. The rooms were so clean. I have NEVER seen a hotel bathroom that clean. Normally, I get creeped out if the wet shower curtain touches me by accident (yes, I have issues), but the shower curtain seemed brand new here. As we were travelling with a one year old, it was nice to not have to worry all the time about the cleanliness of the hotel room.
The view was excellent and it was very easy to walk to town for breakfast. We ate at the Schooner Restaurant and it was very good.

After a long drive through the mountains of Vancouver Island, we were very excited when we came upon this quaint motel with the most amazing views! Our room was clean and enormous and the view was breathtaking. Great value! (And an amazing dinner at the Schooner's Cove Restaurant!)

The Tofino Motel was a great choice of motels in Tofino. It was clean and comfortable. It had a great location. It was in walking distance to restaurants, shops, and galleries. The manager was extremely knowledgeable about the area. She guided us to several places and was truly interested about our trip and experiences.
