I will start off with what was good; not only was there coffee they provided tea (common in hotels) but also hot chocolate (they were the only place in the six we have used so far that did). The towels were the best we have come across on this trip, soft & very absorbent. There was plenty of parking but...

We loved the view from our room which captured all the sounds and goings on of a working fishing harbor. The room was extra large with lots of seating areas, a very comfy bed with good linens, and a good supply of coffee and tea. We only stayed one night, but with the fridge and microwave, a multi night stay...

I was hesitant to book this property as there are some negative reviews online. Critics complain about staff and cleanliness and price. We had no issues in these areas. Our room was clean. After some suggested otherwise, I got cheeky and even examined the top of the picture frames. No dust at all :) But, it is true that on...

I stayed here for 9 days. The room is large. Queen bed in a bedroom and a Murphy bed in leaving room. 2 burner stove, small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Basic kitchen tools, pots and pan toaster and kettle. Great view. All 2nd and 3rd floor rooms have a balcony with outdoors sitting for 2. 3rd floor balconies have...

The view is worth the price! Absolutely lovely stay. I will definitely come back here again. I just wished the check out time was later. The room had lovely local coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Everything seemed new and very clean. The beds were also very comfortable.

This was a nice surprise. Weather is so important and two days of sun in Tofino was spectacular. The motel has two main buildings. The one we stayed in went from the back entry walkway right through to a deck with a wonderful view of Clayquot Sound. The room was spacious with a bedroom and kitchenette area. Reception was OK...

The Marina West is a good set up for what we needed. It is a well kept hotel, our room was a decent size, had a great balcony and we kept our bikes in our room, which maybe we shouldn't have. It's in a great location and good value for the price. I would avoid pricier accomodations unless you don't...

Lots of baseboard and corner dirt. No screen on bedroom window so easy for passerby people to reach in and snag something of bedside table. Great harbour views. Close to town centre. Lower end of Tofino price point.

The hotel was ideally located for us with planned activities at the marina. The room was clean and reasonably spacious but not at the level I would usually expect for the cost - perhaps that's just Tofino! There was a band at the bar playing on the Monday night that the room wasn't well sound-proofed for. Stay there for the...

Having booked this trip at least a month in advance (for our 3 year anniversary), there were only 3 hotels left in the area with Vacancy. This was the best we could get. Not too bad for $221.83 during peak season. Pros - right by the Marina, great views, not so great from room - two surf shops next door...
