Tofino is nice but I think if I returned to the area I would stay in Ucluelet where the hiking trails are located and also more restaurants and coffee houses.

Perfect stay in Tofino.
The stay was very enjoyable with a great suite and Excellent service. Santos was very warm and welcoming making sure I had everything I needed. The location was excellent as well nestled into the West Coast Firs and Ceders but very close to the beach. Would stay again.

4/10 Fair

Milked for every last dollar
On arrival place was completely dark with no signs or working lights. No obvious directions calling the manager got you a man who barely spoke English telling me i must go to the "lau" many times. We eventually figured out he was trying to say loft which is the name of one of the rooms. Room was very cold, like freezing cold, ice in sink and bathroom. All window were open, room was dirty and the blower on the heater was broken. Dirty carpets old pizza and chips under the couch dirty appliances were on the counters. 0/10 for first impression. Thought whatever Ill have a hot shower and deal with it, hot water didn't work, management has installed a governor on the hot water tap for the shower so it barely gets past lukewarm. REALLY NO HOT SHOWER??? None of the lighting seemed to function anywhere place was down right dangerous at night, west coast style wood decks outside in the dark, very slippery. Hot tub did work and was nice but no lighting around it all so basically unusable at night. Anyways you get the idea, if it was supposed to work it probably didn't. Tried to call the manager back to get some of these problems fixed to no answer. Sent and email the next day and a couple days later. I did not feel good about paying what we did for our two nights. No response to anything. Spend your money somewhere where the people care and aren't just obviously extracting cash. Pros awesome location, Semi secure area to leave boards, couldn't lock but better than outside.

Decent place to stay for a short visit.
The room that I booked was exactly what I hoped for. Great layout, very welcoming and private. The only problem we had was at check in as someone else had claimed our room before we even got there so we had to wait while they sorted it out and re cleaned it for us. The owner was great at resolving the issue right away, apologizing and even treated us to a bottle of wine for our inconvenience. Even the caretaker was great, he did an awesome job getting the room re ready for us, he really knows how to hustle! The hotel wasn't as close to the water as I'd hoped for but still in walking distance which was nice. The bbq area and garden was really nice but it was rainy so we didn't get the full use of it all. There is a hot tub outside as well but it wasn't working so we just enjoyed the in room jacuzzi. The trip for my fiance and I was to celebrate his 30th birthday and to have a mini pre wedding honeymoon, all and all mission accomplished. Thank you so much!

Very short walk to the spectacular beach.
Check in was the only weird part. The person didn’t have a great command of English, didn’t ask for any ID, just pointed around the side of the house. I made out the words, “door’s open”. We found the door, and yes, from then on it was excellent, but arriving in the dark, and not knowing if we were in the right suite/place was awkward.

Bring your own decor and toiletries
Well functioning family suite with basic amenities. There were many hooks on the wall but no art so we took the initiative to make our own out of branches and beach flotsam. The washer/ drier did not dry, possible relationship to mildewy smelling towels. But the proximity to the beach and cleanliness made up for the limitations.
