Booked 7 nights here in high season but left after 3 nights. Like most Tofino hotels, this place is way overpriced for what you get. Room #60 was clean enough and actually rather spacious. Front desk staff is friendly and helpful and the food in Jack's restaurant was good. Location is convenient (walk to town in 10 min.) and there...

All the other hotels were booked for most days near the times we could travel. With only 7 days advance search, the few rooms available in Tofino, BC, on a prime summer weekend, were all over $300 per night. But the Marina West Motel was only $160. So we expected an inferior room. We were pleasantly surprised to find the...

If you are looking for reasonably priced (I know, a bit of an oxymoron in this town) lodging in Tofino you may want to consider the Marina West. While it certainly wasn't the most luxurious place I've stayed at, it was by no means the worst. Pros: -It's location is suited so that you can walk anywhere in town -Our...

Walked in to the room and it stunk like mold. Black hair on my pillow, stained carpet, mold on shower curtain. Told the front desk they didn't change our room. We had the room for 4 days and the first day we get back housekeeping went through all our stuff and packed it in our bags!!! Including underwear I had...

Unless you fish this is not the place to stay. The internet pictures are deceiving and deceptive. We booked our rooms 6 mos in advance, one room overlooked the parking lot, the other room weeds growing in a wall. The water view was all marina for fishing, Not a great view at all. You cannot use the bathroom unless you...

we stayed 2 nights in early July in a King suite with kichenette and with extra murphy bed. The room was booked a couple of months in advance. The view of the marina and small harbor was spectacular from our 3rd story balcony. There were, however, many glitches and disavantages: the toilet in the remodeled bathroom backed up twice and...

My husband booked a room (81) at the hotel for 3. I was impressed by the cleanliness and also the superb room layout. Our 20 year old daughter had the Murphy bed and we had the king. Our privacy was guaranteed with our own door. The room had a balcony with a beautiful view which we enjoyed. We walked into...

We (Group of 4 friends) were at this place at the end of June and had a really nice stay there. The receptionist was polite and helpful. The roomservice was good. So I can totally recommend this motel. Especially for young people since there is also the opportunity to have a BBQ in the backyard.

We really liked this motel overall. It was right next to the ocean and our rooms were decent sized. A few things we didn't like... The bathroom was poorly laid out, and our toilet did not work. The front desk staff were anything but friendly pretty sure they all hated their jobs and the house keeping staff was very sloppy....

Motel is located in pleasant location near entrance of Tofino. Restaurants nearby. Beds comfortable. Flat screen TVs. Although our room appeared clean, young staff working there in mid-July appeared to lack sufficient training. We had to call one day at 4:30 because our room had not been cleaned and we required fresh towels. When we also asked for clean drinking...
