Nice hotel on the beach - great for walks

Posted Mar 26, 2015
Pros: soaker tub in cabin was nice.
Cons: dog towels, dog bowl, dog bed - paying $40 for the dog to stay and there was just the hose by the beach to help with cleaning.
Location: beach walks, close to Tofino
Our first room (condo type) was too small for the 5 of us. we were upgraded for an extra cost to a full kitchen/more beds cabin. Dog friendly and there was a hose by the beach for cleaning - towels for the dog and a dog bed would have been added bonus.

Attractive hotel and close to the beach.

Pros: The lounge was lovely. I was able to take my dog.
Cons: It would be nice if there was an outside faucet where I could wash my dog down after coming in from a walk on the sandy beaches.
Location: Location is excellent
Had a very pleasant stay there. Very quiet and peaceful.

Great getaway spot!

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Great location to getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life! Situated between two beaches, you have your pick of spots to enjoy the outdoors. The resort is also close to the beaches for surfing and to the town centre.

True West Coast experience

Posted Jan 14, 2015
Pros: Location, scenery, friendly and open staff, comfortable and welcoming lounge. Close to Tofino shops, but not too close.
Cons: It would have been nice to have dinner at the Lodge, but I know the off-season and the early week booking probably precluded that.
Location: Walk the beaches. Some great coffee places. The Wolf in the Fog restaurant is absolutely fabulous (seaweed salad is great.)
What a wonderful location and experience. I have wanted to stay at the Lodge for almost 15 years, but circumstances have conspired against me. When I had to go to Tofino on business, I jumped at the chance to stay and wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed walking in the distinctive wind-sculpted west coast forest on my way to the beaches on either side of the rock outcropping upon which is nestled the lodge. The roar of the surf, the uniqueness of the trees and crystal clear skies (not unusual for January and February, I am told) created an enduring memory. The hotel staff were wonderful. Very open to chatting about the lodge, the area and why they have come to be in such a beautiful spot. The breakfast was exactly right and the setting -- watching the brightening sky over the pounding surf -- gave me both energy and enthusiasm for what the day would bring. My room in the Lodge was very comfortable and had a wonderful view to the southeast over Mackenzie Beach. The all-wood lodge has a comfortable 'lived-in' feel, much like my own timber frame home, and the lounge area with the warmth of the fire was a great place to relax, read my book and watch the day end. I will be back, next time with someone to share it with.

Not what you think

Posted Oct 26, 2014
Pros: The open lounge area
Cons: Double the size of the rooms and put in better facilities (fridge, TV, storage)
Location: Need a car. Not close to anything and not much to do in Tofino. Half the town is surf shops.
Stayed 2 nights. Rooms look reasonable on website but no fridge, no TV, no cupboards for clothes. Rooms are smallest I have ever seen, had to slide suitcases under bed as no room to keep them anywhere else. Even had to put chair outside room as could not move around it. Curtains did not cover the full width of the window. Tofino is not in a direct travel route so takes a long drive to get there and frankly, I don't think it is worth the effort.

Small room, but with beach view

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: The beach view.
Cons: Room size, breakfast options, stronger wifi signal, and cleanliness of the room.
Location: Close to downtown Tofino and beaches
The road toward the lodge has lots of pot holes. Our room: We were a bit surprise about the size of the room and it has a bit of smell of old furniture and carpet. The size is a bit too small for a couple, but just nice for a single occupancy. We like the beach view from our room. Wifi is almost non-existence in the room, but you'll get a good signal in the lobby. The Lobby: The staffs are friendly and the lobby is very cozy. Overall, this lodge is quite comfortable, but a bit overprice for us.

wonderful view of Ocean and landscape

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: Location, friendly staff and the view
Cons: Having a kettle in the room and a safe
Location: fantastic location, close to the National Park so great for forest walks and beach walks. Tofino is about a 40min walk away which is easy doable
we really enjoyed our stay at the middle beach lodge, staff was very friendly and the location is amazing. Our room had a great view of the Ocean. The only thing is that the room is very small and it does not offer the usual comfort such as a safe, kettle, and hair dryer. But one could borrow a hair dryer from reception.

Real Canadian friendliness and comfort great place

Posted Sep 13, 2014
Pros: From being picked up at the airport to leaving everybody was attentive and helpful. There was a constant supply of hot drinks and baked goods.
Cons: Rooms could be a little larger.
This was a great experience. The accommodation is very comfortable and the service is friendly and quick. The best bit is the terrific location - in the forest but next to the sea! And what beautiful views.
