we had a great view onto clayoquot sounds which was lovely, we also saw sea otters and bald eagles and a raccoon whilst we were on the lovely sunny balcony, the next day however, the mist came in and we could see nothing so maybe if we were looking at the room the next day, the view wouldn't have sold it for us who knows! There is lovely new couple who have just taken over this resort, but they do have their work cut out for them as we had to wait ages for our room to be ready as there was only one person cleaning rooms and there was a lack of understanding which room needed to be cleaned and the next day wasnt much better, but fairly comfortable room anyway but quite overpriced really you are definitely paying for the view and the location is good as you can just walk downtown etc.

First off, the view from our Studio was absolutely amazing and the location of the hotel couldn't be beat. Otherwise, this hotel did not have much to offer. The buildings and furnishings are in rough repair and very out of date. It looks like there has not been much spent on improvements for quite a few years. The building we stayed in housed 6 very small "Studios". It was very cheaply constructed with flimsy walls and doors. The entire building swayed and rumbled whenever anyone climbed the stairs to the second level. Even the opening and closing of patio doors could be heard throughout the building. Luckily, the others staying in this building with us were quiet types, because voices could easily be heard from suite to suite.
We appreciate a rustic unique setting, (we were heading out on a week long kayak/camping trip) and are relatively easy to please, but there was very little "love" put into this place. Others might call it unique and quirky. I just call it cheap. For the value, there are much better places to stay in Tofino.

We got a nice suite with a full kitchen which was nice. Great view of the ocean and we were able to spend a lot of time on the little rocky beach. We even saw some sea otters!
I have stayed there twice now in the off season and from what I have seen it seems to have the best value for the laid-back type of traveller.
Very friendly service too!
Both times we have walked in without a reservation and received a very good rate.

I'll preface this review by saying I would not stay in Tofino during the high season - rooms everywhere are ridiculously priced, including at this resort. During the offseason, the room rates here are in the $105-150 range, which is reasonable for the region.

The location of this resort is very convenient being in the heart of Tofino. You can park your car, and walk anywhere in the town. There's also a small staircase that leads down to the small, rocky, beach area. At low tide (and if you watch your step!), you can see a lot of marine life in the tidal pools here. The resort itself consists of separate buildings joined by boardwalks with a thick forest covering giving the place a very secluded feeling.

This was my third stay at this resort. The first time, back in the early 90s, was in a studio room - while those rooms do have the best view of the cove, they are only large enough for one person or a close couple. With both the sofa bed and queen bed, there was literally no room to move around the room. That said, they were clean and decently priced.

This time, and the previous time, I stayed in one of the one bedroom suites. These consist of a small living room area with a sofa bed, kitchen area, bathroom and a bedroom with one queen bed. The suite was quite clean, which is difficult to do given that the area is usually wet, and guests often arrive after hikes or other outdoor activities. The furniture and facilities (except for the TV) were also in reasonably good condition - that is, obviously not new, but clean. The bathroom was in very good condition and well decorated with ample towels.

Having your own cooking facilities here is super-convenient, as you can walk a block to the Co-op grocery store, buy food and cook it in your room! This is especially valuable given that many of the restaurants in Tofino are mostly fine dining or greatly overpriced.

Now for the quirks... The kitchen had no frying pans - it's a bit awkward cooking a steak in a soup pot. The bed sheets looked clean - I inspected them very carefully, but they were dark brown! This made it more difficult to inspect them. The towels also seemed pretty clean, but were dark blue. There's something about having white sheets and towels that gives one more confidence of cleanliness than dark colours...I think that's why most hotels have white towels/sheets. The TV was fairly old, which wasn't a problem...but it had no remote control! We were told this before we went to our room. I forgot what a pain it was to switch from channel 46 to 3 without a remote. That said, it is much more relaxing to have the TV off and just listen to the ocean at night... There was also a slight musty smell near the door - I don't fault them so much, because it is an *extremely* wet climate, but it was still a bit concerning.

So...all that being said, the location, cooking facilities and reasonable all season rate means that I would recommend this place to someone wanting good value in Tofino, and would likely stay here again if staying in Tofino. I may stay in Ucluelet next time I visit the region though - seems a bit more down to earth.

We just spent a long weekend at Duffin Cove Resort and had a wonderful stay. The location is perfect:: right on the water, hidden away at the end of the road, but in town. Our room was a short walk from the parking lot, but felt like we were secluded away with our own window on the bay. The room itself was great with a fully stocked kitchen, thick towels in the bathroom, and a super comfortable bed. A perfect getaway.
