I stayed here while running in the edge to edge marathon. Very conveniently located, close to shops (it's a small town) with many places to eat nearby. The wild pacific trail Lighthouse Loop is a bit of a walk, but manageable. Staff were always friendly. There is a heated pool, gym, sauna as the motel seems to double as the...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in June, 2016. Our first impression of the room was not positive, smelling like old socks and mildew on the windows. The décor was decidedly 80s. With that said, the room has excellent Wi-Fi and the TV is good. The pool is absolutely amazing and is the perfect tonic after long walks....

We travelled to Ucluelet for a wedding being held at the Black Rock Resort. After looking at all accommodations in the area, including the Black Rock (where we would have received a discount) we chose the West Coast Motel. We are so glad we did. We had a room for two nights overlooking the harbour, with full kitchen and balcony....

Seven hiking friends and I spent three nights in this motel while exploring local hiking trails. We stayed in a portion of the hotel called the "Fisherman's House" and found it to be exactly as described on their website - a great accommodation for a small group. Though the property is not a luxury resort, it is well looked after,...

The staff was very friendly and great service. The facilities are everything you could want for a fun time in a very enjoyable small coastal village. Highly recommend it. There are a number of great restaurants in town, but it is really the people who make the town special.

What a great place to stay - well within my limited budget, super clean and comfortable, so much so that I decided to stay an extra night. Apart from the amenities (unbelievably comfortable bed and pillows, immaculate room and bath, indoor pool and gym, outdoor seating) what really makes this place 'home away from home' is the staff: wonderfully friendly,...

When I was looking for cheap accommodation I booked this property. I must admit I was a bit worried about what it would be like. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprized. The motel was clean, the staff was friendly, the location was terrific, the indoor pool was a nice touch and the price was great value for dollar paid.
