Travellers' Choice
Hotel Zed Tofino is a hotel experience that completely rebels against the ordinary. You may be used to our retro-chic motel feel in our other Hotel Zed locations, but Hotel Zed Tofino is a whole new vibe. Think: totally gorgeous, swanky 70's pad. But this isn't your Granny's crib (unless your Granny was a very stylish rebel!) Our rooms and public areas are groovy and chilled out. The style is deluxe and you'll never get bored here with our sunken living room, retro office, psychic's den and...what's that? A bike path that runs through the middle of the lobby? Yeah, you've never seen anything like this before. Plus, we’ve got an on-site bird sanctuary for you nature lovers. World-famous Chesterman Beach and the Inlet are both a short stroll from the hotel, and if you wanna roll into town we’re right on the bike path. Quick note: There are still some old photos on here from travellers before we built this new hotel so ignore those. This hotel is brand new! Peace and love, rebels!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We usually spend our time in Ukee but decided to give this hotel a go, as we always pass by it on the highway. The hotel has a fun vibe, lots of things for kids to do, explore, on the grounds. They especially liked the tetherball, hidden arcade, ping pong table and hot tub. The only hiccup was that our room door wasn’t working when we arrived so it took a while to get settled in. The good part was that the front desk rectified the situation as quickly as they could. Luckily the kids were kept busy at the arcade during this time. We ate dinner at Roar and the food and service was very good. Our waiter was very attentive, personable and made sure our son had all the crayon colours he needed! I think next time we visit we will start our trip at this hotel for the “fun” part and then spend the rest of our trip in Ukee for the calmer, waterfront part of our trip.

This hotel was a big disappointment for couples. If your looking for a relaxing escape for a couple please find another space, this is hotel is full of out of control kids and loud dogs. If you’re ok with rooms full of barking dogs, kids running rampid, waking up to slamming doors at 6am, this is your place. Be aware, if I knew this I would never have gone

My husband and I brought our 13 year old female cat along to our trip to Tofino. After hours of researching every possible option for accomodation in tofino and ucluelet, we decided on Hotel Zed. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the very friendly staff. They were extremely accommodating every step of the way. We choose the basic king bed option and it was perfect for a couple with a pet. Our cat was purrfectly happy with the room, the bed was comfortable, the shower was great (2 options for shower heads), and absolutely no noise from any other rooms whatsoever on the 3rd floor. The coffee at the cafe was great( as long as you love a good strong cup), the jetted hot tub was perfect and is on the lower temperature side as to probably not cause blood pressure concerns. We literally just got home from the trip and our cat is laying on my trip bag dying to go back. She loved the place. We were happy its a pet friendly hotel that didnt charge an arm and leg for the night and cleanliness was impeccable. We will be going back as soon as we can! You cannot find a better place than this for price, pet friendly, and fantastic amenities with outstanding customer service!

Great restaurant, quiet room, friendly staff, great location. We checked in for two nights in December. The room temperature is modulated by electric heater through a wall mounted controller. It was warm and stays very flat and comfortable. Shower and toilet are separate. Shower head shows cost cutting in the renovation and water is very weak. Leather chairs are not comfortable and lack back support. They look very strange and must be brought in from Asia. Despite the upgrade renovation, it feels like a motel. But I cannot deny the comfort and service. It is a top choice, if the price is right.

Hey Ron. Thanks for the high marks. We are super stoked to hear that you and your crew felt comfortable and got great service from our staff. That ROCKS! I'm sorry you didn't love our chairs. I'd like for you to know that we have different room styles, so the next time you come up for a Tofino adventure, please mention that you want a room without the Luna Chairs and we will "Hook you up". We hope you had groovy time discovering our swank little resort and had awesome Tofino adventures. Cheers from paradise. M

The most fun hotel ever! Just go! Don't miss the coffee/gift shop and Roar! Beds are super comfortable, walk-in rainshower is awesome. The staff are very friendly and seem to love their jobs - I suspect because they are treated well by management.

Loved it here. Cool room brought me back in time. Friendly helpful staff. Wes was so nice at the front desk. They give you a bag of tea and coffee at the front desk. This hotel is very environmentally aware. There is a cool hidden arcade room behind a bookshelf you have to find. A Mystic Room, large srabble board, children's playground with VW bus, sauna, hot tub in the forest, sunken living room at the entrance to hang out....There is a quick walk through the woods to a beautiful scene of water and birds. There is a restaurant attached called "Roar", food is amazing. They even have a drink that donates part of the funds to the LGBTQIA+ community. I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel highly exceeded my expectations. Service was awesome from everyone we met reception, housekeepers, restaurant and bar staff. The hotel is very fun loved the games room, hot tub and sauna. The food in the restaurant was excellent for dinner and lunch. Free laundry and free parking. We booked a surf lesson with swell tofino in the building although a different company and that was excellent also.

We went to Tofino for a quick get away. Greeted warmly by Emma at reception. Hotel in a good location. 8 min drive to Tofino. Walk to beach across the street or the inlet behind the hotel. Room was clean, quiet, comfortable and non smoking. Has a fridge and a good layout. Toilet is separate from shower and sink. Kettle and coffee pot in room Has a cool vibe mid century decor. Made use of hot tub and sauna located in the woods. Sauna feels like a tree fort. Played PAC man in the arcade space! Did not take advantage of all the amenities. There is a restaurant on site. Plenty of free parking on site.

As you can see from the photos, this is a super fun and funky hotel! There are games to play in the groovy lobby; there's ping pong and shuffleboard, and a nice little walk to the water. (Not the beach - that's on the other side of the street.) The staff is incredibly friendly and the hot tub and sauna are great. The food in the restaurant, Roar, is a little fancy/pricey for our taste, but we had a lot of fun at the bar. And the pillows are large and dense. (I want some.) The hotel is a short drive to "town" but that wasn't a problem. Go and have fun!

The hotel itself is a delightful change of pace for the experienced traveller and a real treat for the young at heart at all ages. The food in the restaurant is very good! That being said, it is the lovely staff that really made our stay there a memorable treasure! Everyone was great but I’ll highlight, Ki and Mandy at the front desk as well as Elsie, all delightful young ladies who simply made us feel welcome, comfortable and completely at home! I cannot more highly recommend a stay here as I’m certain you’ll want to stay much longer then it will be possible.
