We stayed here for one night as we needed dog friendly rooms. We were pleasantly surprised to find the rooms had been newly and completely refurbished! At the time of booking this was not obvious from the website so we were delighted. We had a room with a queen and a sofa bed. Additionally, there was a kitchenette with a...

This is a nice motel with great potential. The room I stayed in was very clean and spacious. The entire room was well laid out and newly renovated. It had a microwave, kettle, bar fridge and a couple cups. The one fault was no dresser as I really would have liked to unpack. I has potential to be much better...

Our room was clean and quiet. Just there for one night. Michael was a good host and was helpful for local knowledge. Again, only one day there so can't give a comprehensive review, but we were impressed with his eagerness to help. I'd stay there again.

With a BCAA discount one night in high season came to just over $111 for a well-appointed queen plus sofa-bed room with kitchenette in the new block of rentals of this First Nation owned business. The new central block offers slightly upscale appliances and fixtures, such as a larger capacity thermal coffee pot and individual room thermostats. Overall the room...

As a family with 2 children we chose to stay in one of the "two bedroom suites" so we would have a kitchen. The suites are definitely older, sparsely furnished, but clean and functional. Unfortunately we had zero service, housekeeping did not come once in our 4 day stay. Ran out of coffee on day 2 and needed a change...

This motel appears to be quite new, even has the new smell in the rooms which are very large though rather sparsely furnished for their size. Everything was very clean, very comfortable bed, fluffy towels and nice toiletries. There is a fridge, sink, microwave and a really good coffee machine with insulated pot which keeps coffee nice and hot. No...

We were given the disabled room which had just been modernised and was tastefully done and very large. It maybe seemed extra large as we had no sofa which was a shame and had to ask for a bedside light (so we must have been the first occupants and btw we're not disabled). But other than that all good.

This motel must be brand new. It was a huge room, one of the lowest prices that we found in Ucluelet or Tofino. The room still smelled like the cedar on the ceiling. The bed and pullout couch were comfortable, the towels were bright white and fluffy, and the kitchenette was a bonus we didn't expect! The staff was very...

This was quite expensive but everywhere else was booked up. Nice big clean room and bed. Must be new or recently refurbished. Good wifi. Problem was we could hear every footstep from room above us. Plumbing quite noisy. Ask for room on top floor

Good points: - suites are relatively cheap, especially considering the high scores of accommodation in the area - big, big space - a suite consists in a big living room + two big bedrooms, bathroom and a well equipped kitchen - central location, close to restaurants. not a huge plus though, as most people visit Ucluelet & surroundings by car...
