The Ecolodge at the Tofino Botanical Gardens
Ranked #11 of 20 Speciality Lodging in Tofino
Reviewed 11 December 2010

I've been staying at the Field Station for the past three years or so, whenever I come out for a weekend from Vancouver. It's quiet, clean, and totally affordable. I was surprised in my most recent visit to see the changes they are making to the place, which is making it even better. Before it was hostel-style accommodation (think dorm rooms) which was always fine for my purpose but they have re-done the rooms and moved away from shared bunk beds to more private rooms. The price has gone up a little but frankly I am still happy to stay there as it is still cheaper than almost everywhere else and I really like the owner and staff. The owner told me that the built-in wooden bunk beds got infected with bedbugs and he has such an aversion to the chemicals used to combat the bugs that he decided to change the furnture and room arrangements. I have seen bedbugs in hostels all over the world and I certainly didn't see any sign of them here.

Anyhow - the kitchen is great, washrooms sparkling clean (check the washrooms - they are ALWAYS a sign of general cleanliness in any hotel or restaurant), the garden setting is wonderful (it reminds me of guest houses in places like Guatemala). Definitely check it out and chat with the owner - I think his name is George - he's a very funny guy and really into Darwin and gardens.
