Just completed a two night stay at the Marina West Motel in Tofino. Was not expecting too much. Was very pleased to find a nice clean room and very comfortable bed. We had a quiet two nights. The sound does carry in the Motel so if you had noisy neighbors it would be a distraction but this was not a...

We happened on this place through a special offer combining stay and whale watching. The location is excellent for easy access to downtown Tofino and makes a good base for excursions. From arrival to checking out the staff were cordial and helpful. We had our dog with us and were offered a special gift of having the pet stay with...

We stud her for the 3r time in 3 years. I did not request a preferred type of room, they were very accommodating in trying to get me the type of room I wanted. Although we did not get an ocean view they did give us $50.00 in food credits which we really appreciated, I would recommend this hotel to...

Stayed here with my husband in winter using Hotwire (Expedia). Hotwire advertised a slashed rate of 265.00/night, "75% off Winter Sale", and I so I purchased for 66.00/night. What a deal right? Turns out the Marina West has a regular rate of 69.00/night, so I saved a whopping 3 bucks. Lesson for ya -- don't book through Hotwire. They refused...

Stayed using a Groupon. We were pleased with the clean room and the beautiful view. The staff was friendly and helpful. Groupon included a whale watching trip. Our Captain Ike was fantastic. Although we didn't see a whale he made the experience unforgettable and will be one of the best memories we will ever have.

Pretty much everything you need except shopping. It has a competent restaurant for breakfast. A good pub to wind down at night. A private pier to go on. Whale watching business right there. And a hotel with friendly staff and clean rooms. They also allow pets for a $40 fee. I definitely will stay there again.

It was easy to find and close to town. We check in around 6pm & rested for a bit but when we decided to go have dinner @ the diner, it was close. It's only open from 8-3 on sunday to thursday. Front desk didn't inform us about it. We then have to scramble to look for a place to...

We had harbour view rooms and took advantage of groupon deal. If looking for high end, it is not here but if you want good value it was great. We did have partiers outside our window at 1:30 but they soon went to bed. The diner had great breakfasts and watching the harbour load boats etc. was great fun. Whale...

I booked this room through Groupon and I guess they don't want return visits. I would have thought that the owners would want to put there best foot forward so you would tell others and return yourself. Won't happen. The room I was given had no views what so ever so if you choose to stay here make sure you...
