This is our second time here and we really enjoyed it both times. The included breakfast, the fresh baked cookies at 8 pm and always available coffee and tea are a bonus! The location is great, close to shops and restaurants in Tofino and the other resorts. The trails and beach by the hotel are very close and great to... More

This was our first time at MBL although we have visited Tofino many times in the past. However this time with my daughter. The position of MBL on a rocky point, amongst the trees overlooking Mackenzie beach to the left & over the ocean directly in front was just fabulous. We had a two bed cabin which was very spacious,... More

My brother and I stayed four nights at this lodge. It was without a doubt the happiest, most helpful, competent group of employees that I have ever had the pleasure to be served by.

Our stay in the lodge was absolutely perfect! We booked the cheapest room with ocean view. Although a small room, everything was so nicely designed and cosy! Great bed. The nicest thing about the place is the great living room where you feel immediately at home. We arrived after a long (although beautiful!) journey from victoria and enjoyed the tea... More

I'm not sure if I felt more disappointed or angry that this hotel charges the high prices it does for the poor accommodation you get.
