This was our fist trip to Tofino and it was booked at the last minute so we were happy to find any hotel or motel that could accommodate our family of 3 with only a couple of days notice. We weren't expecting much when we arrived considering this was a motel and not a hotel. It's definitely an older property... More

The views were good but the kitchen not touched as it was dirty and greasy to touch. The shower curtain was filthy. Eat at a nearby hotel and wish we had not stayed here. Tofino is a beautiful resort, recommend Wickamanish or Best Western hotel but not the Marina West Motel. They need to up their game and provide good... More

The front desk was so friendly and quick to help me up grade my room. No complaints there. If you're looking for fancy don't stay here. It's simple. It has a great view and it's in walking distance of lots of really nice things in town.

We booked via Expedia, and got our room (with kitchenette and balcony) for just $75 a night pre-tax. The rooms are sufficient, everything worked, and everything was clean. The location is walking distance to town, so very convenient. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly, and housekeeping kept fresh towels supplied.

Comfortable motel about 10 minutes walk to town center. Apart from the motel there is onsite a pub serving a large selection of excellent local beers and a diner with a good selection of pub grub. They also run whale watching, bear watching and hot spring expeditions. WiFi is very slow throughout Tefino probably due to being so remote. Spent... More

Great Pub on the water front. Servers are great. Views are fantastic! Right out your window, port hole or deck. Great food. This pub is associated with the Marina West Motel and the Marina west Hotel Eco-Adventures Tours.

I'm aware that summer is high season & prices are inflated in Tofino but we needed a place with 2 rooms to accommodate us, a couple & a family visiting from Europe, so affordable options were limited.

I had prebooked, requesting a ground floor unit as i was traveling with my 84 year old motherinlaw, and she has a lung condition which makes it tough for her to climb stairs, or even walk for longer than about 30 minutes without a rest.
