This charming inn dates back to the 1920s and says it was the first hotel in Tofino. It is right on the shore with views of the seaplanes and the sunset. The style is seaside simple (don't expect a TV) and as the website clearly states there are shared bathrooms. But don't let this put you off. It was full...

This hostel has several rooms with the showers and lavatories shared and a kitchen and dining area over looking the bay. Our rooms were comfortable and clean as were the kitchen and bathrooms. There is tea and coffee supplied in the kitchen and though the pots and pans had been over used in the past, they still worked fine. I...

Last minute booking in the summer. Sizeable room overlooking the road. Very clean and practical. Shared bathroom was cleaned regularly and did the job. Kitchen was well equipped and again clean and tidy except for the coffee machine which needs replacing but the views over the bay were stunning. Free tea and coffee provided and shared fridge available for guests....

We spent 3 nights in Tofino in the Paddlers Inn. The rooms are nice and cozy and you will find everything you need. There is also a kitchen where you can cook small meals (it's not equipped for extensive cooking). The bathroom was clean and spacious. The only two negative things I can say is that it is an old...

Very cute and reasonably priced. Don't expect a luxury hotel but the room was quaint and cute, shared bathrooms, comfortable bed but the one double bed we had was in a loft type area... It was kind of hard to get up to and down during the night if you needed to use the washroom..there's a kitchen to share with...

We stayed there 4 nights and really enjoyed the view and the possibility to use the kitchen (not very well functionning kitchen though). However it was very noisy, we could pretty much listen to everyone's conversation. 1 bathroom for 5 bedrooms (and a second one downstairs to share with the kayak shop customers) is not enough, especially if the other...

Right in the heart of "downtown" Tofino, just steps away from the main drag, it's a really convenient place to be during your stay. The rooms are clean and private, and there is a kitchen just down the hall with an unlimited supply of complimentary tea and coffee. If you're staying for a while or are coming with a family,...

Stayed in a double bedroom overlooking the water for 3 nights in March 2015. Good - Position in town. It is a lovely building right on the water with great views, nice to sit in the morning having breakfast watching the kayakers and seaplanes. Slept very well, the beds are on the softer side and the sheets were new. All...
