This motel is very small and severely outdated. “Hot” water was little more than luke warm, bed and pillows uncomfortable. It was clean however and owners seemed nice. If it was a budget hotel ie $70/night it would be fine, but at the prices that i saw it is jot worth the money.

A pleasant little motel that covers the basics for staying in Tofino. Walking distance to Chesterman Beach and closer to a cafe, tacos, groceries, yoga and a surf shop.

Motel - Great location
Motel is in great location. It looks a little tired but functionally it's good. The staff are really nice and friendly. 2 Big beds and heating/shower works. Does as it says on the tin. Motel - not luxury but we were happt with the stay. It's right next door to a Great coffee show - eatery and bike hire place. All recommended.

8/10 Very Good

We frequent this motel as a straightforward home base in Tofino, as we barely spend time indoors. It is economically and location wise fantastic. The owners are fantastic, extremely friendly and treats you like family. I just wish for some updating and maintenance, it’s feeling very run down. Bathroom very shabby and barely any shower pressure. Cobwebs in the corners and too much insects found in the bathroom for my liking. Despite all this we do keep coming back so that’s something!

Too close to the high way. Thin walls. Nice enough for the price though.
