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...

The Paddler's Inn was my favourite place to stay during a recent trip to BC. Its great location smack-dab in the centre of Tofino town-site and it's beautiful view of the harbour from both the room and the main kitchen area. Despite being the oldest inn in Tofino, it is very well maintained. It is cozy and quaint. The squeaky...

We just returned home from two nights in Tofino. The Paddlers Inn was perfect for our group of eight (two families of four). We rented all of the rooms although we could have gotten away with less we wanted the place to ourselves. All the rooms have different combinations of sleeping arrangements. The beds are futons and are really comfortable....
