We stayed here on our trip to Tofino. It had a small kitchenette with a refrig, microwave, and dishes. Fantastic view from or sliding door. The room had a king side bed and a fireplace. We didn't want to leave the room. It was too cold to sit outside but the view from the room was incredble. A great vacation...

This lodging is located right on the water with expansive, landscaped lawns leading down to the beach. Our room was clean, bright and comfortable with a great view of the beach. The hotel provides boxed lunches for an extra charge and they were tasty, filling and a good value for the money. Breakfast in the restaurant was good, but service...

Nancy, Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your recent stay at our resort.

The king sized bed was super comfy, service is awesome, views are out of this world. Right on the beach with paths down to beach, would be great in summer - BBQ facilities & benches to use. I can hear the surf from my patio. Had the venison & wild mushroom stew - mmmm. My husband had the halibut which...

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...

Stayed in a 1brdrm suite, ocean view room, with a small kitchenette. The room was clean, check in & out was easy. We had a large deck with view to ocean. There is a large field in front on the hotel before the beach - excellent for kids to kick a ball etc. The beach was fantastic - not to...

My family of my wife and two young children stayed for two nights. Clean facilty. Well-designed and staff friendly and eager to please. We had a ground floor apartment so we had the patio door open.
