Cute little place :) but rather pricey if you ask me. The staff were lovely and very helpful. There is a nice patio in the restaurant below overlooking the Harbour and really the only bad thing I would say about this place is the Tempura..and it's a Sushi restaurant down stairs!

I was sitting in the restaurant having dinner and saw three eagles playing over the water. It was breathtaking. Such a cute little inn with great decor. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and I could not believe how large the washroom was. The sea planes were too freaking loud in the am but the ocean/mountain/island view made up...

I stayed one night and had room downstairs Cute deck with harbour view. A little quirky, a few small things were broken or didn't work like door blinds. Lighting was awful with one florecent bulb in a single pot light in ceiling and a gooseneck lamp bed side.. Nice clean, spacious bathroom, hot and cold water tap reversed. Comfy bed....

I didn't want a "Best Western". The Inn had some unfavorable reviews but we booked it anyway. One night, how bad could it be? Well it turns out, not bad at all. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. The one we shared had twin beds, small fridge, lovely antiques (although a little dated) nice sized bathroom and a lovely...

Cute little hotel over a sushi restaurant with comfortable rooms, updated bathroom, large tub, comfortable firm bed. Really enjoyed staying there with balcony. Very convenient. Moderately priced for the location.

We had room #6 with a double bed and we added a cot for our daughter, so it made the room a bit tight, but just fine. The bathtub is enormous and had plenty of hot water for each of us to shower and have a bath following our excursion to Hot Springs Cove. Having the restaurant downstairs was a...

we had four excellent night in this superb hotel. It is quirky - each room different with an eclectic mix of furniture. We had a room with a balcony but facing the village - really nice big room but I expect the sea view would have been better. Great big bathroom , comfy bed, plenty of hanging space for clothes....

We had 3 nights at the inn in August 2016. The room was lovely and comfortable with a fantastic view. We also had some great sushi at the restaurant upstairs! There was a tiny bit of noise in the room from the restaurant (chairs scraping, etc.), but not too bad and the restaurant closed by the time we were in...

We planned a two night stop over in Tofino and got the Inn at Tough City through Booking.com. Not especially cheap but nowhere is in central Tofino and this allowed us to dump our car by the hotel and walk everywhere. Architecture in Tofino is pretty eclectic and this pace fits in with that. It is above a sushi bar...

The hubby and I really loved this cool laid back hotel/restaurant. The sushi was fresh and delicious and the staff was warm and friendly. Cannot wait to go back at the end of July for some more frolicking and debauchery.
