I read all the reviews before I booked this hotel...I was slightly worried, but we only really sleep in our room, I wasn't worried about the "dated decor" and those reviews were old, so I took the chance. I'm happy we stayed here. We arrived a little early, but were able to check in immediately, which was nice. The front...

The cabins are in a fantastic spot - the views are to die for! We stayed in one of the A Frame cabins ( family of 5) . Yes some of the decor is a bit dated - but the position of the cabins is outstanding - would love to comeback again!

Great location at the very edge of the peninsula where Tofino sits. Our cabin looked out over where the Pacific met the islands of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Boats of all description, float planes, kayaks, misty sunrises against sunny nearby islands, a beautiful location. Only negative observation was our cabin was tired and needed some renovation. Coffee pot...

You would think that for $350 a night the owners would at least provide toilets that flushed and bug mitigation of some sort? But no. We had the view as advertised but could not enjoy it. The room was faded and dated - not in a quaint way. Paper thin walls and neighbour noise negated the waves. Stay somewhere other...

Thank you for your comments. We are so sorry that Tofino did not meet your expectations. We certainly would have fixed any toilet issues you may have had if we had been notified. I'm also sorry if you may have run into some bug issues, certainly not the norm for our rooms. We hope your future travels go well.

Was very happy with our room and the staff helped me as I was travelling alone with 2 children under the age of 2. Was nice to be soo close to town and could walk anywhere we needed to go. Had a wonderful stay and was very happy with all the help I received!!

We felt fortunate to find this last minute deal during the busiest long weekend of the high season. Mike was so accommodating when I contacted him by phone. We were very fortunate to get a studio suite on the upper floor overlooking the cove and absolutely perfect for a couple. The suite had recent upgrades that I'd noted, the suite...

This is a tiny motel style lodging. The room had a fantastic view of the Ocean. Everything was very clean. However, the room and furnishings are old and run down. We enjoyed our stay in the very basic room. The location is in walking distance to the restaurants and bars. The price was very expensive.

We came to duffin cove for a little r and r after our wedding. After looking at reviews we knew it wasn't going to be the wickinnish Inn. It was easy to find, has parking and the lady at the front was super nice. We were in room 101 which is down closer to the water. The view was great...

Great location overlooking the sea conveniently close to the middle of town 5 minutes from the shops and restaurants. Plenty of free parking for guests outside. We had one of their cabins which was perfect for a family of 4. A few steps down to a rocky cove full of rock pools to explore. Small twin room upstairs with a...
