West Coast Motel on the Harbour
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Ucluelet
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We found this motel to be ideally placed for the Pacific Rim National Park and great value for money. The motel does not provide breakfast but the rooms are spacious and include a well equipped kitchenette - fridge, cooker etc. The grocery store is a short walk away.

It is family-run and really friendly, and ideally placed within this small town for all the amenities.

This side of Vancouver Island is really pretty and we would go back to this motel anytime.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the harbour.

Glad we chose Ucluelet and the West Coast Motel. Although Tofino is a pretty location and not as touristy as we'd been told, 'Ukee' is a more genuine working town. The Motel is well priced, well run and perfectly located, within sight of Sub-Tidal, Brian's whale/bear watching tours in his converted '50s lifeboat. Recommended by two semi-aged travellers from the UK.

Hello youngsters!

What a great trip - Brian at Subtidal is an enthusiastic host for whale watchers - glad you enjoyed it. We are grateful for your kind review and hope you will make it back to "Ukee" again soon!

Happy travels!

Chose this place after reading reviews here in Tripadvisor & I'm glad I did. It was the most reasonably priced and at 10% off a 3 night summer weekend stay it can't be beat. The location is also great because it is within walking distance of almost any place in downtown Ucluelet. They also give great advise on places to eat & prices as well.

We had the most basic room but it was very clean & served our purpose well: a place to sleep as we enjoyed whale watching, hiking, hot springs, etc. There are so many things to see & do, we were happy to have a nice comfortable room to sleep in after a fun filled day.

The owners Jeff & Brenda were very accommodating & you can tell who they are right away as soon as you see them. Jeff has a very nice sense of humor too :).

If you're looking for value next time you're in Ucluelet/Tofino area, stay at West Coast Motel you sure will get your money's worth.

Thanks so much for choosing our place and taking the time to write a review! We try to reward guests who stay 3 nights or more, by offering a discount - with one condition - you must book direct from our website, rather than though a travel agency (online or otherwise). We hope you will take advantage of this again very soon!

Happy travels!!!

It's still hard for me to justify the prices in Ucluelet and Tofino, even after the four days we spent there. But my father found the West Coast Motel for a reasonable rate (compared to the $500+ of the other hotels).

Cara at the front desk was pleasant, informative, helpful and clearly takes her job seriously. She remembered our names and called out a hello to us when we passed her in the parking lot two days into our stay. She gave us exceptional advice on where to eat and what sightseeing tours were better value than others.

The rooms were very small, but I don't have much experience in motels, I generally stay in hotels. We were told we'd been upgraded, but I can't imagine a room more basic than ours for two people. We had a very small double bed which was about a foot shorter than my 6'1 fiancé. However the rooms were very clean, free of cobwebs, bugs or stains. The rooms were cleaned promptly and thoroughly each morning, and the general maintenance of the entire building was great. We never got to experience the gym or the pool, but there were always people coming in and out of the amenities which gave me confidence the level of cleanliness extended there.

If anyone is looking for a reasonably priced room with all the amenities and creature comforts of a hotel, and is short in stature, I recommend this motel!

Hello Sanderella 97

Thanks for the nice review and we are glad you enjoyed it!!!

The Euro sleepers (our smallest and most compact units) come with 1 double bed. That being said, your 6'11" boyfriend would probably enjoy a queen bed, which all of our other unit styles feature. Hope you can come again -just give us a call and we'll select a more appropriate room for you. We even have some large units with private balconies, with more of a hotel-style feel.

Happy travels!

Arrived to owners Jeff and Brenda at the front desk knowing who we were. Nice to be greeted by name. Jeff and Brenda are a wealth of information. Told us what the good places to eat for different kinds of food. They offered (and did) to book any excursions for us with a few suggestions of different operators along with +/- regarding each. Our room was the cutest we've ever had. It was clean, updated and had all we needed. Very comfortable. My sons loved the swimming pool and weight room. We had such a wonderful experience here. I highly recommend this wonderful property to everyone!!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that have a harbour view... wonderful scene to wake up to.

This is a very nice little motel, with friendly staff just off the main street in Ucluelet. If you're visiting the pacific rim national park to walk the trails and beaches during the summer monthes, then be prepared for high prices. This is a very clean little motel room with parking right in front, for a comparably low price of $170 per night which was great considering the many other bedrooms in the area going for well over $300.
The motel is within a short walking distance to a great little all day breakfast restaurant (The Blue Room), with a partial view of the inner harbour. Also can walk to whale watching boats and other town attractions, like the touch and feel aquarium.
We drove into Tofino for some window shopping, but all the great beaches and trekss were in Ucluelet or south of Tofino in the National Park.
A great place to lay your head.

Ask Brenda for anything you need, from kitchenette tools to local travel advice. You won't find a more fairly-priced, convenient and welcoming place to stay neat Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Highly recommended!
