I stayed one night and had room downstairs Cute deck with harbour view. A little quirky, a few small things were broken or didn't work like door blinds. Lighting was awful with one florecent bulb in a single pot light in ceiling and a gooseneck lamp bed side.. Nice clean, spacious bathroom, hot and cold water tap reversed. Comfy bed.... More

I didn't want a "Best Western". The Inn had some unfavorable reviews but we booked it anyway. One night, how bad could it be? Well it turns out, not bad at all. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. The one we shared had twin beds, small fridge, lovely antiques (although a little dated) nice sized bathroom and a lovely... More

Cute little hotel over a sushi restaurant with comfortable rooms, updated bathroom, large tub, comfortable firm bed. Really enjoyed staying there with balcony. Very convenient. Moderately priced for the location.

We had room #6 with a double bed and we added a cot for our daughter, so it made the room a bit tight, but just fine. The bathtub is enormous and had plenty of hot water for each of us to shower and have a bath following our excursion to Hot Springs Cove. Having the restaurant downstairs was a... More

we had four excellent night in this superb hotel. It is quirky - each room different with an eclectic mix of furniture. We had a room with a balcony but facing the village - really nice big room but I expect the sea view would have been better. Great big bathroom , comfy bed, plenty of hanging space for clothes....

We had 3 nights at the inn in August 2016. The room was lovely and comfortable with a fantastic view. We also had some great sushi at the restaurant upstairs! There was a tiny bit of noise in the room from the restaurant (chairs scraping, etc.), but not too bad and the restaurant closed by the time we were in... More

We planned a two night stop over in Tofino and got the Inn at Tough City through Booking.com. Not especially cheap but nowhere is in central Tofino and this allowed us to dump our car by the hotel and walk everywhere. Architecture in Tofino is pretty eclectic and this pace fits in with that. It is above a sushi bar... More

The hubby and I really loved this cool laid back hotel/restaurant. The sushi was fresh and delicious and the staff was warm and friendly. Cannot wait to go back at the end of July for some more frolicking and debauchery.

Tofino is a small town that relies on tourists for it's income. There are numerous accommodation establishments, restaurants, tourist shops, a large co-op and retail shops all focused on satisfying the needs of tourists. We chose to spend a nght at the Inn at Tough City because of its location - right on the waterfront. The brick building has a... More

Loved this cute place with lots of character. The room was fresh and bright and huge bathroom. Would definitely stay there again. The sushi restaurant was very good. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The deck on the water was a a great place to sit and enjoy at the end of the day.
