We had a three night stay in a two bedroom unit. This had a well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and two good size bedrooms. Everything was spotlessly clean and in good working order. The young lady at reception was very helpful and obviously not only enjoyed her job but was proud of where she lived. By the time we left...

We stayed at West Coast Motel for one evening. The motel is in a great location and is perfect for walking anywhere. We were greeted kindly by Cassandra and the check-in was speedy. Our room was simple and very clean. The wifi was consistent. We had a view of the Marina. They offer a pool and access to the fitness...

It is really hard getting a reasonable price place near Tofino. This place was expensive but cheaper then other places. It was okay for two nights but hard to justify what we charge but I guess this area of Vancouver has a limited time when tourist visit. Hotel was small, but clean and staff where friendly. The room was pretty...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. We appreciate your feedback. We have a great location here close to the shops, restaurants and trails. I’m sorry the view was not what you were hoping as we are located by a boat harbour. Being next door to the marina we do attract fisherman but also families with...

Wonderful location in town, warm and friendly folks at West Coast Motel. Quiet by design and reinforced as part of their hospitality culture. After an active day hiking Ucluelet and Tofino that quiet was much appreciated. Clean and basic appointments. Good WiFi. We had a terrific view of the harbor from Room 302. Highly recommend.

We were warmly greeted at check-in, and the young lady at the desk cheerfully gave us more information and recommendations for things to do and places to eat than we could handle! Our harbour-facing room was recently updated and featured a small but full kitchen and separate sitting and sleeping areas. It was attractive and comfortable. Hotel guests also get...

We were generally pleased with the features of our room. The kitchenette featured new appliances. The bathroom had recently been refurbished and there was new, "premiere vinyl" flooring in the bath and kitchenette. There were some deficits that took the shine off for us--1) Security--we couldn't get the windows in the unit to lock securely (and these windows were very...
