Great place loved the friendly staff and comfy bed and large bath and free wifi and nice tv and affordable price for 89$ a night! Best price in town I will definitely be back! They also have a pool and hot tub and gym! Location is right in town with walking distance to everything!

For $100 you get a twin bed and a bathroom and a view of the parking lot. but it was clean and the tv and wifi worked. Its walking distance to all the restaurants and shops down town. The motel is part of the community pool and exercise rooms but I never went and used them.

The little green cabin, part of the West Coast Motel, could be stunning but, in reality, is tired and rather drab. It has a super position across the road from the busy harbour but is north facing, so rarely gets the sun. Also for two of the three nights we were there, a huge lorry parked directly outside, blocking the...

The room was small but clean and is in a good central location. The bathroom was modern but the water temperature in the shower fluctuated. The motel lacked a ice machine outside that was available for everyone but when I inquired at the desk the person on duty went back and got me a container of ice.

This is a budget hotel, and if you are looking for upscale amenities, well, as their web site says you've come to the wrong place. On the other hand, if you want an ultra clean and comfortable spot, this is it. We stayed for 2 nights in one of the "upstairs" rooms, which was large and looked out over the...

I enjoyed my stay, and both owners and staff very helpful and friendly. Good location, lots of facilities - although I didn't use the gym or pool because weather good and sight seeing. Room was fine, although the walls thin and can hear through them. Other guests considerate whilst I was there, no late night noise etc.

Hello! Thanks for coming and taking the time to write a nice review. We do work hard to ensure all guests have a great stay and that is a fact with an older, but mostly renovated motel, the walls aren't as thick as a new facility. It's not bad, but we are adamant about quiet time after 10 PM. We...

We went to Ucluelet as an alternative to Tofino so next year when we come back to North America we can do better planing. Turned out our preference was Ucluelet over Tofino. As a budget hotel this hotel should be rated as excellent in it's category. The owner simply knocks herself out to assist and help her customers therefore if...

This little motel is downtown Ucluelet and close to everything the town has to offer. The room was smallish but very clean and the beds were comfortable. Staff was super friendly and helped us out with the rest of our itinerary. A pleasant surprise and good value.
