Upon arrival, we were greeted by a enthusiastic man in the lobby who was more than stoked to get us situated. He explained our awesome balcony, all in/out procedures and offered to assist with unpacking the car (which we were fine without, but it was a sweet feature considering the laid back nature assumed by the overall esthetics). Once we...

If you are tired of those sterile, predictable hotel rooms then The Inn at Tough City is the place to stay. We had room one with the view of the harbor. There was always something happening to entertain you. Seaplanes, kayaks, water taxis, fishing boats, tour boats, barges and tug boats. You could see all of this from your covered...

Drew and I got married on MacKenzie Beach, and we stayed at the Inn at Tough City with our family. We had a fantastic time! The people who worked there were all so happy for us. We had a family dinner in the Sushi Bar. We all (4 couples) all stayed in lovely rooms. Super comfy beds, wonderful views, good...

Pros: Convenient location; exterior of building. Cons: Non-existent service; no support for travelers; bad attitude of staff; poorly maintained/furnished room; no security; massively overpriced; lack of transparency on prices. Summary: Dollar for dollar, the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Spent 4 days there in August, 2012. Let's start with the positives. The Inn at Tough City is located in...

We booked a king room by booking.com and we had a really poor queen bed because as the lady at the front desk said , there was a double booking . She was nice to give us a room with a nice view instead of the king ( with partial harbour view we rent) but the room itself was so...

The hotel was okay. The no elevator thing was a bit of a bust since we had big suitcases with us. The room was very clean and the staff was helpful. The room was pretty expensive for what we got for the price. Parking was hard to find near the hotel. Very busy street. One of the rooms we stayed...

We’ve been at The Inn at Tough City some days ago, for a two nights/stay. Tofino is a beautiful place and The Inn is in a stunning position, with a wonderful view on the bay and the channel in front of the city. Our room was the most expensive of the Inn (about 200€/night!), it was very beautiful, with a...

The hotel was ill prepared for our stay. Not only was our room in the farthest basement (without elevator) but also lacked any comfort you would expect for the rather steep price. The room was not cleaned during our stay nor was any service from the hotel available. We were very diappointed and would not return.

We enjoyed our 2 nights at the inn. It was clean and quiet, the view from out upper room was beautiful. I would recommend this place if you want a relaxing place to stay. There is a sushi restaurant at the hotel but we never ate there.
