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.

This motel was wonderful! Our room was clean, cute & cozy. And the bathtub was awesome! Tons of hot water :) I have stayed at this motel several times and have always had a delightful experience. The location close to the marina is perfect.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We booked last-minute after a few days of camping and surfing, just wanting a place with a hot shower to regroup and repack before flying out. I had zero expectations, but what a great surprise! Our room (a family unit) was clean and had been recently updated. But here is what I really loved- we parked right outside which made it easy to load and unload instead of dragging our stuff through a lobby, windows that opened to let in fresh air, a very nice, clean floor with no carpet, plus a view of the Ucluelet Small Craft Harbour. We walked over to the brew pub for dinner, lovely patio with good beer, view, and vibes.

My partner and I stayed for two nights in February. We were in a ground floor room with a balcony. Loved having a view and when you are on the balcony it is very private. The beds were comfy everything was clean. There were extra blankets and pillows. The room had two queen beds and a 4 seat dinning table and there was still lots of floor space for yoga 😊. There was a tiny little kitchen with sink, mini fridge and microwave. We brought meals from home to heat up. Saved a bunch of money not having to eat out. There was just enough dishes, cutlery and untensils to make it work. I had brought dish soap tea towels and bottle opener etc from home but it was all there. No cutting board or cooking knife though. Also, if you want to bring your own coffee, bring filters because they only have those weird coffee tea bag things so we had to use the motel coffee. Good enough for us but if you’re a coffee snob it just won’t cut it. We had a great stay and would definitely come again.

Drove past this motel several times before knowing it would be home for a night. The motel was great, the room was great and the staff was even better. Jessie was a force making things happen last minute to make sure the room was ready. I will stay at the West Coast Motel on the Harbour anytime. Even acquired a big slab of chinook salmon from a local fisherman free gratis. Jessie's smile and caregiver attention, made my day. <3

Though times are certainly different from how they use to be it is still important to all of us to be very friendly and make our guests so comfortable that they cant wait to come back, it helps to be playful and have a fun sense of humor. I do really appreciate your kind words and it was brought to my attention by my manager,so well done.

My brother and I stayed at one of the "bargain basement" rooms. Bargain yes, basement no: it is ground level with a big window facing the harbour. You can't quite see the boat hulls, but can see the masts and stuff. Parking is right outside the door.
Kitchen is complete: fridge, stove, good frying pan, toaster, great little coffee maker (coffee pouches supplied), teapot, big pot, and even a container with candles, matches, and flashlight in case of a power outage. My brother said, "it's as if someone cares".
Nice fold out couch under the window and some chairs make it easy to entertain a few friends. The two beds are in a separate area in the back, this is a large room.
Great deal!

Staff was friendly. Unfortunately both bedrooms had no windows and therefore no fresh air. So we left the doors open to the living so there was some air. We had 2 people who snored so the person on the couch didn't get much sleep. Also it was advertised as with a pull-out couch but there wasn't one. They did offer to bring in a cot. Also the doors squeaked so every time someone went to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, you woke up. I got the front desk clerk to use some lubricant on the doors and then there was silence. Also as we tried to figure out how the couch was supposed to pull out, when we removed the cushions, there were crumbs, etc. under the couches' pillows, so the cleaner needs to be more diligent. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay. Brief walk to the floating restaurant and it was nice to have a full kitchen and handy parking. And it was the best price we could find, so all in all, good value for money.

Hello Jan Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review as we do appreciate and value your feedback. I would like to apologise that we had recently renovated the unit and the new couch that was delivered did not have a pull out couch. We have been trying to change the post to removed the pull out couch but unfortunately have had a struggle to do so. But yes we would have been more than happy to bring you a cot in lieu of. We also appreciate that you brought to our attention that the hinges we a little squeaky as they too were new. I am happy that my front desk agent was able to come assist you with that. She had also passed along to myself and the housekeeping team about the the couch. Our housekeeping team is very diligent and takes pride in the cleanliness of our rooms so i assure you this is out of the norm. All in all i am happy you enjoyed your stay and got to enjoy the awesome Float House restaurant right behind us. I do hope you stay with us again. Safe travels. Cassandra- Motel manager

Spent one night here and even though the room was small it had everything we needed including extremely comfortable beds. Definitely would go back.

Front desk clerk was very pleasant and easy to deal with, model was very central and would be a good place to drop your bags before heading out touring.

West coast motel was perfect for our stay. It was very clean, comfortable and inexpensive. It has a great location on the habour and walking distance of restaurants, excursions and trails. We had a suite with a kitchen and living room that made it feel like a small apartment (at less than 1/3 of the cost of a room at the chain hotel in nearby Tofino). The staff was friendly and helpful. I would come back here any day.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and I will continue to come back. This place is great! The staff are lovely and very accommodating. The rooms are all excellent. My room had an incredible view of the harbour. I appreciated that it had a mini-fridge and microwave as it meant that I could bring back leftovers from a local restaurant and enjoy them the next night as well as being able to enjoy cold drinks and keep some yogurt and fruit for breakfast. This hotel is within easy walking distance of anything in Ucluelet.
