Absolutely wonderful. This is literally a lodge. Don't expect contemporary city-like hotel decor or amenities. We stayed at the Beach Lodge. The common area gave a cabin-esque atmosphere with a fantastic beach view. The rooms are small, with all you'll need to get away from the city: bed, shower, toilet, sink. The beach is right downstairs, and rain boots and...

We have stayed at Middle Beach Lodge many times over many years. It's one of the few places we return to regularly. Those of us who love Middle Beach aren't looking for luxury or chic contemporary. We prefer the laid-back, casual West-coast feel of the place and the ever-changing staff, often from around the world, who make up for slickness...

Middle beach is a perfect location to relax and enjoy any time of year. This rustic location offers amazing access to beach combing, hiking and storm watching activities. The warmth of the rooms and the people that you meet are amazing. While the menu is limited you can go into town to try out the local food. Check before you...

Your opinion of Middle Beach Lodge may depend on the type of trip you are making. Our trip was a hike and kayak trip on Vancouver Island; staying in Tofino was a brief respite from camping. We found Middle Beach Lodge to be a very nice place to stay; location is beautiful. Accommodations are nice but lodge-like - not over...

Friendly youthful staff. Rooms rustic on the small size. No hi definition television in 2017????. Sound of the surf while sleeping is awesome. Continental breakfast American style . I prefer the European model. Rooms dated. They provide boots and outerwear for long walks on the beach. The best surprise was the salmon dinner provided every couple of nights . Very...

Overall stay was fine due to helpful nice staff. The common areas are comfortable. The views are lovely. The downside is the personal space or room was quite small, quite dated, and literally little room to put your shoes down and you had to live out of your suitcase. Only space to hang anything were a few wooden pegs on...

This is a great resort to go with your family and feel right at home. It is beautifully set within a forest setting overlooking the beach. The food is good and fresh with great value. You can just go there and relax!!

stayed here for our 50th wedding anniversary. Overall the lodge itself was very nice. and why I could not give it a 5 star is because of the room we had. we stayed in room 32 at the headlands. The room was kind of stark looking with a old dresser that should have been in a burn pile somewhere. 2...

If you're into yoga, meditation and reading this is the place for you. No laughing or carrying on allowed. Everything in the dining room is self serve. For the prices I expected a little table service.
