Great place, good value for money!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Aug 2022
I wasn't sure I was happy about spending $360 (Canadian) for a motel room, but I chalked it up to high season (July), and Tofino's general reputation for being expensive.

When I pulled up, indeed this place was a motel, and I prepared myself to be disappointed.

However, when I walked in, I was quite happy with what I found!

I booked the "Harbor View Kitchenette Suite". It was surprisingly nice. There was a separate bedroom (with a door that closes) with two twin beds, plus a king bed in the main room. As the name stated, it also had a kitchen area with a stove and microwave.

The unit also had its own balcony, with a beautiful view of the harbor!

Overall, the place was quite large, and I really liked it. It really had a high end feel to it. I forgot I was even in a "motel" until I walked out the door.

It's also located right in the heart of Tofino, so you can walk to a lot of shops and restaurants, many of which are open until 10-11pm.

The only thing I disliked? There's an obnoxious 10am checkout time. Way too early. Checkout should never be before 11. I did get them to make an exception and let us check out later, however.

If I ever go to Tofino again (it's a bit off the beaten path), I will definitely book that same suite at the Tofino Motel Harborview!

Easy to find, almost at the start of the town when you come in. I love the balcony on second floor, great view of harbour and flowers. The room is very clean and modern. Comfy bed. The little details matter, like real cream for your coffee in the fridge and pump hand soap that smells like lavender. Staff and check-in were great.

Stayed at this motel, partly because off season the price is affordable. $178 per night is a good deal in Tofino…however I can’t imagine paying their rates in high season! As nice and comfortable that this motel is, it’s not worth the ridiculous nightly rates . Tofino is obscenely expensive, and every restaurant and accommodations are not for people on a normal budget.

Quaint little motel with a beautiful view of the barbour. The rooms have been completely renovated and are lovely. Comfortable beds, 2 nice chairs and a balcony to sit on when it’s not raining. Restaurants,shops and other attractions are within walking distance.

My wife and I spent a week in Tofino and stayed here on the second floor in the kitchenette suite. The room was clean and comfortable, the kitchenette had everything we needed and the view is amazing to sit and have lunch from. It’s located literally seconds from town and also only a short drive to the local beaches. We were able to walk into town everyday enjoy all the local shops, tours and Tofino life. I would stay here again every time!

The motel has brilliant views at the bay and is close to companies that offer whale watching tours, also walking distance to the city center. Check-in was good and we got some nice recommendations for dinner. The room was clean and offered enough space and amentities. Just the price was very high, however, in the area is not much choice and was almost nothing available when we traveled. It was a very pleasant stay.
