I'm aware that summer is high season & prices are inflated in Tofino but we needed a place with 2 rooms to accommodate us, a couple & a family visiting from Europe, so affordable options were limited. The rooms are in major need of upgrades in all regards; constantly dripping shower, no waste basket (even after asking reception...told to use...

I had prebooked, requesting a ground floor unit as i was traveling with my 84 year old motherinlaw, and she has a lung condition which makes it tough for her to climb stairs, or even walk for longer than about 30 minutes without a rest. Right from the checkin, we didnt like this place at all. Felt very rushed at...

Don't bother reading a long review....this place needs a serious update to bring it out of the .1970's....just avoid it..and sleep on the Beach if you must......! However, Tofino is a very laid-back village with a really nice feel to it...and lovely beaches.... Nuf said..😖

The Marina West is in need of an upgrade. The beds were comfortable for a few nights sleep, the furnishings need an upgrade and the bathrooms could really just be gutted and redone. There is no A/C in the units and it deathly hott during the day. There are also no screen doors on the patio doors so when you...

The Marne West motel is adequate........clean with a decent bed but not much else. The place is badly in need of a facelift. The furnishings are worn and the bathroom could use some upgrading. That being said, The Marne West is cheap by Tofino standards - $179 The continental breakfast was basic but included in the rate.

We had a great 3 night stay at this motel. The staff were friendly, the room was nice and spacious and we had a great view out over the harbour (we were on the third floor). It is also close to the town centre so you can easily walk to the restaurants and local attractions. Tofino is a really nice...

We have stayed at the Marina West Motel several times, always returning because of the great value. It is one of the less expensive places to stay in Tofino, with all the necessary comforts and conveniences, including a balcony with chairs for every room. Well located within walking distance from a few good restaurants, bars, tourist attractions and the waterfront,...

Great view at this unique motel. The upper 2 floors have balconies with seats and all rooms seem to face the Marina. We had #67 which was a corner unit on second floor. The building itself was not soundproof and we were woken up quite often by travellers in hallways. Bed was ok for comfort. Nice bedding and was fairly...

When you first pull in to this motel it is a little confusing to figure out where the reception is and orient yourself. The reception is in the big yellow building that you see when arriving. It took me some time and a little searching to figure this out, so some signs would be great. The young guy on reception...
