The motel was not really clean. We can smell and feel the humidity inside of the room.... Also the price was really expensive for a tiny room like that. You can also ear the people on top of you and beside. All those noise wake me up early in the moorning . I would not recommand this motel.

When we booked we were told there would be "no sun" in our room, we did not know what that meant and had seen it was a low rated motel in Tofino but we did not have a choice as everywhere was full. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at 10:30pm. The man greeted... More

We stayed in room 21 on the upper level. I think it's one of the best ocean views in the motel. There is a small electric fireplace that takes the ocean chill out of the air. Fridge is beyond tiny (2x2). Bathroom was very large. It was clean and bed was comfortable. Super convenient location across from Co-op grocery store,... More

Clean motel. Could use updating, older furniture and old wall paper in the rooms. Beds were decent, pillows were good and extra were supplied. Nice location close to downtown easy to walk and explore. No breakfast. Our room was right by the office so it was noisy in the mornings with people checking out. Staff is friendly and helpful. Wifi... More

The hotel was clean, and looks nice from the front. But, our room was tacky, with really old furniture and cheap stuff. There was no coffee, and one bag of tea for two adults. It felt like we were in the motel of the 'Dallas Buyers Club' movie.

This hotel was what I expected for the price. It is a budget-friendly accommodation, with minimal amenities. The location is very central. Which is great. we didn't spend much time in the room anyways, fortunately.

Wouldn't know. I was refused due to my seeing eye dog. I tried to explain it was law. But apparently they don't care. I have stayed in some fine hotels. This was a last resort. Then to be denied. Truly upsetting. I tried calling back and was hung up on three times. Then it went busy. Was actually glad we... More

We were welcomed by the smiling receptionist, despite arriving late in the evening. Our room was clean enough but the electric sockets were very wobbly and the glass in the bathroom window was cracked. The room looked out onto the car park and can therefore be noisy, depending on who is staying at the motel. It was good to have... More

Stayed here for two nights with friends while we had a fishing charter. Was absolutely horrible!! We booked through Booking.com. We arrived in Tofino late on a Friday and the owners were upset when we checked in at 10:30, even though we had called to inform them that we would be late a day earlier. We were given room 24...and... More

LAst minute planning has its thrills. We found room in this motel when everything else in 30 km radius was booked. Well that could be an indicator. But we were looking for a clean bed, a hot bath and a room.. we got that. It exceeded our expectations over sleeping in the car :)
