Positive Reviews

Nice location close to the beach

The location of the motel has normally proven popular with previous guests. Along with a position that is a short walk from popular restaurants and Chesterman Beach, the property is also just five minutes away by car from downtown Tofino.

Clean and tidy rooms

Despite a few vocal complaints, the majority of past visitors have been pleased with the hygiene levels of the accommodation's rooms. For the most part, the rooms were considered clean and well-kept, and it was noted that they were also serviced regularly.

Accommodating and friendly owners

In terms of customer service, this facet of the motel was praised by most former guests. Although their communication skills were questioned on occasion, the owners of the property have typically been seen as really friendly and considerate.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms lacking maintenance

When it came to the general condition of the rooms, this aspect of the accommodation was criticised by a sizeable number of past visitors. As well as the standard rooms being labelled as small, the rooms were typically thought of as dated and rough around the edges.

Substandard Wi-Fi quality

The quality of the free Wi-Fi was often derided by previous guests that tried to use the facility during their time at the motel. In particular, the range of the Wi-Fi was described as insufficient in covering the entire property.

Limited value for money provided

It has been stated that, with a lack of public facilities available, the accommodation is a strictly no-thrills affair. Partly as a result, and although it was seen as cheaper than other choices in the area, the overall value for money provided was generally said to be lacking.
