Our room was a good size, not luxurious but having all we needed. Splendid view from the room and balcony. The situation is quiet yet only a couple of minutes walk from all amenities. Whilst we found Tofino expensive overall, we felt this motel was reasonably priced. We would certainly go back and recommend it.

Don't let the "Motel" word discourage you. The room and the bath room are very clean and have plenty of space for everyone (me, my boyfriend and his dog-a Boxer). Nice view from the room and good location for shopping and dining. This is a great place to stay and awesome value for your money.

We stayed there for 2 nights on the Remembrance Day long weekend this year. Most hotels charge these days as mid-peak season rates while this hotel remains the same off season rate. The hotel owner is very friendly and gave us some good tips on which beaches to go or where to eat. We had a great time there. We love this place and would definitely go back.

This was our second stay here but my first review as I wasn't on Trip Advisor until recently. We chose Tofino Motel again because of a very pleasant stay the first time. This time was very pleasant overall as well, but we noticed a few minor housekeeping issues:
-only one roll of toilet paper,
-only one facecloth and hand towel,
-no shower curtain,
-a seriously slow-draining sink in the bathroom.

We didn't notice these until we returned around 8pm from our evening activities. We rang the bell at reception but there was no answer, so we had to make do overnight. Staff were very apologetic the next morning, and we are confident these were just random oversights.

We also noticed significant noise from the stairs leading to the upper floor, and from the suite above us; footsteps, creaky floors, toilet and shower sounds, voices. I think we were fortunate on our previous stay that there were no (or at least, quieter) guests above us.

Otherwise, we experienced the same spotless rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, and wonderful view as before. The mini-fridge was cold, there was a working hair dryer and kettle provided along with a nice selection of teas and coffees.

Tofino is a popular destination, and as such can be expensive. Still, we were a little surprised that even in dark-and-rainy October, our room rate was $125/night for two adults. Tofino Motel is becoming our base for our Pacific Rim getaways, and because of the overall high quality of the property and service, we will continue to stay here when we're in town.

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view; our room on the ground floor had noticeable noise from the floor above (toilet flushing, shower, footsteps, voices).

Thank you for your pleasant review of your stay with us. We again have to apologize for the oversite in housekeeping. The motel has maintained a 95% OCCUPANCY RATE since the beginning of April, , our housekeepers need a few more days off to recover! Now nearing the end of the season, we post winter rates at $85.00 from the 1st of November until March 15th, with the only exception being the Christmas holidays. Thank you for saying you will make us your home base on your frequent trips to the Wild West Coast....

I discovered the Tofino Harbourview Motel two years ago. This is our second trip and we were looking forward to getting back to Tofino. The Tofino Motel is located right on the edge of the townsite; an easy walk to our favourite restaurant, The Inn at Tough City or any of the other good restaurants in the downtown area.

This is an older building with larger rooms than I am accustom to. It has been well maintained and is immaculately clean. The beds and linens are excellent, it has newer carpets and the unit smells nice and fresh. There is a fridge in every room and the internet service is very good and user friendly. The bathrooms are quite large with lots of counter space to spread out your "stuff." The shower heads are adjustable and there is good water pressure and lots hot water.

The hotel is built on a north-south axis so you see the rising sun and moon. Every room also has a view of the Tofino crab dock and the surrounding islands. There is a nice deck on every room to enjoy the sunrises.

For a tourist town the rates are fine and reflect the season. I'll go back.
