We stayed in the Garden Suite, which is massive. It has a fireplace and a private garden, as well as a spacious kitchenette and laundry machine. Everything is very convenient - Chesterman beach is right across the street, and it's great to be able to do a load of laundry. There's also a whirlpool tub indoors and a hot tub...

Went here for May long and absolutely loved it. The owner was very accommodating to our requests, and he went above and beyond to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. The place itself was fantastic, easy to find, and literally a 1 minute walk to beautiful Chesterman beach. A very clean, quiet and relaxing place, with a hottub, place to...

I loved this place - the room we stayed in was the Loft and it had everything we needed: privacy, space, equipped kitchen, hot tub, etc. Very clean as well and room to store surfboards, wetsuits, and bikes. 2 min walk from beach, hot tub right outside, and 15 min walk to little grocery store, cafe, Tacofino, and surf shops.

The location was just perfect, right in front of beach access. The hotel was perfect for surfing, they had places to put boards and wetsuits overnight. A washer and dryer for towels and bathing suits. Hot tub as well. Cleanly and friendly. I would stay here again.

The host was excellent, very friendly and welcoming. We were in the Garden Suite, very clean, quiet and close to the hot tub that we really enjoyed. The location is perfect. Right across the street to the beach and just the right distance for a bike ride into Tofino for lunch. It met all our expectations and we hope to...

This lodge provided a very private get-a-way. Newly renovated and very clean, well stocked kitchen. The feature of the place is the hot tub outside, it was fabulous. There was impressive attention to detail in the bathroom, a beautiful tile double shower and nice sink. It was clean but the smell of Pinesol was a bit overkill. If the weather...

Tofino is one of my family's favourite places to go to and spend a quiet weekend. Of all the local accommodations we've stayed in, Sea Star Suites definitely sits on top of our list. Only steps away from Chesterman beach, this mature property has aged beautifully...looks much better in real life than on the pictures. We stayed in the main...

We stayed in main suite, greeted with 'money upfront' from cherylinne. Musty smell on entering suite, no views from bedroom widows as looking out on interior buildings, no laundry facilities, sockets in kitchen failed, no big deal but when we reported same the response was 'what'. On the positive beautiful Chesterman beach across the road, 10 mins drive to Tofino...
