West Coast Motel is a nice, affordable motel in Ucluelet. The rooms are not aesthetically pleasing, but meets the needs of a nice, clean place to sleep and relax after along day of hiking. Our room had a kitchen, but we didn't use it. The people at the front desk was very helpful with any questions we have. The hotel...

We had a great night at this very friendly motel. The owners were very welcoming and gave us a local map to recommend hiking options and great places to eat. Rooms were nice and clean and the location is perfect. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night before embarking on an expedition and were impressed by the friendly service and good housekeeping of this hotel. We booked a very small room, so it was budget friendly, but it didn't lack in all the necessary amenities a traveler needs. We also used the outdoor barbeque area for a self catered dinner, which...

Everything you need for a quiet, private getaway. Overlooking the harbour, with own patio. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Comfortable queen bed. Well stocked kitchen and, if you can't find what you need, just ask at reception. Owner is very friendly and has lots of information to share, including restaurant and attractions recommendations. Free high-speed Wi-Fi.

Great place to stay in Ucluelet. Room prices are very reasonable. Central to everything. Walk to eating or shopping. Just on the harbour, so great view from room. Cozy and comfortable. Clean and spacious.

Thanks for coming, Mike and for taking the time to post a kind review. We are right on the harbour! Many rooms face the harbour and have a lovely view. Some do not face the harbour and are usually a better price. Glad you liked our place and hope to see you again soon. Happy travels! Brenda and Jeff

Tired of finding over-priced and over-rated motels in this area, we came across this motel in Ucluelet. Room prices were very good in comparison to others; but when we saw our room, we were even more pleasantly surprised. We had a complete 1-bedroom suite with a full and fully-equipped kitchen for far less than the most economical double room we...

Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to write a nice review. It's a lovely town, but hard to get to Long Beach without a car. Glad we could help you out with a bike. There is a bike shop in town, as well, open seasonally, for rentals and repairs. Please come back and see us soon!...

I was in the motel the end of March and it was just perfect as always for my twice yearly whale watching trip.

Hello Don! Thank you for the lovely review. We always appreciate your visits to see us!! Thank you. Sorry we couldn't "push" the "good weather button" for you, while you were here. Seems it was "stuck" on cold and rain! Improving now, though. See you soon. Brenda and Jeff
