We stayed in cabin A right on the water front. next time I would reserve Cabin B. it was beautiful, relaxing and clean. will definitely return. Walking distance to everything except long beach. but the drive isn't very far.

New owners have work cut out to make this live up to potential. Worn out only words that come to mind. ... but clean Location is good access to small beach will no doubt be safe by next season. Eccentric layouts worn out in every sense as replacement of some items will be a challenge. Won't ever be my first...

We visited Tofino for just a couple nights, and I think we ended up in a pretty great place. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, which suited us nicely. The cabins looked pretty great, but there is a lot of stairs to get to the cabins and we a babies and luggage to deal with with. The room we...

Forget all the negative reviews and complaints , my wife and I stayed here for 3 nights 19 - 21 September 16 and absolutely loved it . Maybe we were very lucky with the weather in that we had blue skies and sun all day . We stayed in one of the studios with fabulous views of the Pacific and...

I read all the reviews before I booked this hotel...I was slightly worried, but we only really sleep in our room, I wasn't worried about the "dated decor" and those reviews were old, so I took the chance. I'm happy we stayed here. We arrived a little early, but were able to check in immediately, which was nice. The front...

The cabins are in a fantastic spot - the views are to die for! We stayed in one of the A Frame cabins ( family of 5) . Yes some of the decor is a bit dated - but the position of the cabins is outstanding - would love to comeback again!

Great location at the very edge of the peninsula where Tofino sits. Our cabin looked out over where the Pacific met the islands of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Boats of all description, float planes, kayaks, misty sunrises against sunny nearby islands, a beautiful location. Only negative observation was our cabin was tired and needed some renovation.

You would think that for $350 a night the owners would at least provide toilets that flushed and bug mitigation of some sort? But no. We had the view as advertised but could not enjoy it. The room was faded and dated - not in a quaint way. Paper thin walls and neighbour noise negated the waves. Stay somewhere other...

Thank you for your comments. We are so sorry that Tofino did not meet your expectations. We certainly would have fixed any toilet issues you may have had if we had been notified. I'm also sorry if you may have run into some bug issues, certainly not the norm for our rooms. We hope your future travels go well.

Was very happy with our room and the staff helped me as I was travelling alone with 2 children under the age of 2. Was nice to be soo close to town and could walk anywhere we needed to go. Had a wonderful stay and was very happy with all the help I received!!
