Ah! A sauna after a winter surf. Marvelllous. This is actually the second time we stayed here. We first stayed in one of their tiny, but inexpensive Euro rooms. Was great! Not much money than the hostel, but has a private washroom. It had everthing we needed, but next time, as a treat we rented a balcony unit. as nice as any hotel, with your own private balcony to watch the fishing boats. nice. The sauna is fantastic. hot as heck. It's part of the fitness center they run on the property with an indoor pool and a humoungous gym that gives you a view of the boats. we were really happy with the rooms. we like to support family businesses and this one has a really great vibe. they gave us beach towels to use and let us come back and shower and use the sauna after we checked out. you are doing a fantastic job, Brenda and Jeff and kids. see you soon. we have family coming and will try to rent one of your big suites!

Room Tip: we bring our own surf gear- they have a dry room for your wetsuits and a discount at the surf shop f...

Spent two nights here in October with a group of friends and had a blast!! The owners are so awesome, very accommodating and clearly make a real effort to ensure our stay is a good one. Gave us all extra towels to use the pool and sauna and even gave us paper plates and cutlery with out barbecue tools when we used the outdoor cooking area.

The location was perfect for us, right in the middle of Ukee close to brunch spots, pubs and friend's houses - just a short crawl away! Also, it was wonderful waking up in the morning and looking out over the harbour - the boys really liked this part. :-P

Indoor pool was clean and nice and warm, the sauna was such a treat some of us used it twice during our stay!

For a group of us looking to have a fun weekend in Ukee this was the perfect place for us - we'll be back!! :-)

Room Tip: If you're a group looking to have a good time and possibly a late night, grab a room on the grou...

My fiance and I took a spur-of-the-moment road trip to Vancouver Island’s west coast during one gorgeous summer weekend in August 2010. We got to Tofino and prepared ourselves with food and wine, but - being too involved in being with each other and not involved enough in noticing that we were in a tourist trap on one of the last weekends of summer - we neglected to reserve ourselves a hotel room.

At around 8:30 pm we dragged ourselves off the beach and into Tofino. Nothing. Nothing was available except for one questionable establishment (the reviews on it in Trip Advisor were really terrifying). We called everywhere. We looked online for hotels, B&Bs, anything, but everywhere was full. Finally, at around 10:30, we called the West Coast Motel in Ucluelet. The owner, Brenda, answered right away. They had a room!!! We immediately reserved it. This motel is a small, family-run business and it was getting really, really late and we still had another 45 minutes of driving before we’d get there, so Brenda offered to put the key under the mat for us. We stumbled in at around 11:30. The key was right where she’d said it would be. No hotel room had ever looked more inviting (we really had been prepared to spend the night in the car).

The room itself was nice, especially for the price range. It was very clean and well maintained, with a nice bright yellow and blue colour scheme and a somewhat nautical theme (of course - it being right on the harbour). It did not seem dated and looked like - if not recently renovated - then at least incredibly well-maintained. The bathroom was small but well-stocked and - again - clean. They’d put a corner toilet in the bathroom which made it considerably more spacious. Smart thinking. The bed was comfy. We had an excellent sleep.

The next day we met Jeff, Brenda’s husband. He gave us a rundown on all the best things to do in Ucluelet. He is really a fan of his town and sells it well. He was friendly and knowledgable and sincere and we look forward to going back and spending more time in Ucluelet based on what he said.

Please come back again and enjoy another stay with us -we have all kinds of rooms and would love to give you more information about our great little town! So many great restaurants, kayaking and tours to go one. We can keep you busy for days! See you soon..... Jeff and Brenda

Very nice hotel, not perfect but then what is ? We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite for about 310 dollars. It was fully equipped with kitchen, bathroom, sitting room, TV, free (reliable) wifi internet access, washing machine and dryer.
The beds were fine, perfectly comfortable.
With very helpful and pleasant employees I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Criticisms ? The bath doesn't have a hand hold to get out. If you have a bad back make sure there is someone who can help you out, or just shower in it. Also the smoke alarm needs adjusting - it went off when we boiled up water to cook spaghetti !
Now if only the hotel can fix the weather... it rained constantly while we were there :)
