Reviewed 21 November 2016 via mobile

Came up to Tofino for a spur-of-the-moment getaway. Got a last minute deal at a Best Western for under $100.00; but hey! It's on the beach, right. So we are not expecting much, comfortable bed and clean would be nice. As we pulled in, it looked like a nice, well-kept complex, so far, so good. Lovely welcome at the front...

I was so excited to finally stay here after wanting to for years...needless to say I was disappointed. The staff was great and the view was amazing....but...the room itself was an issue. The duvet on one of the beds stank like a mix of dirty feet and wet dog. Further inspection it looked like it had not ever been cleaned....

The weather was so nice when we stayed in Tofino for two days. The hotel was nice and clean, but it is outdated. Some renovation could help the hotel. It is great to have the beach in front of the hotel and we could see the nice sunset. The staff was friendly and the food at Beachfront Bistro breakfast was...

I was very happy to stay at this hotel! It was right on Mackenzie beach and was very dog friendly! My dogs loved playing on the beach. We enjoyed the food at the restaurant as well. Very good value and friendly service at the hotel. We will return for sure!

Dining room service - dinner first night slow, dinner second night nonexistent. Breakfast both days good. In summary indifferent. Buffet food was very good at dinner but cold at breakfast. We were there on a tour.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your tour group's recent stay at our resort. Our restaurant is ala carte menu service but did switch to buffet breakfasts and dinner to accommodate your tour group wishes. However, our high food and service quality standards should still be in place and I apologize for your experience. I...

Nice hotel, with stunning customer service. Although stayed only one night, I will stay at this hotel when I go back for my business trip. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Balcony attached to the room is an added benefits to enjoy the stunning surroundings without leaving the room. Nice view from the hotel as well as from the restaurant....

We stayed here for two nights and loved it. Our room was on the ground floor and the view up the beach was stunning. The room was big, stylish and comfortable. Offering great heating for when it was cool outside and even had a gas fire place. We enjoyed the hot tubs and the fact that the hotel was right...

This was a quick business trip to Tofino. (We had stayed in Ucluelet the last few times in the area.) We were very pleased with the whole experience at this site. The buildings and grounds were immaculate! The views are breathtaking. The food in the Bistro was fantastic! We'd love to go back on a vacation, we will be back...
