Tofino accommodations are located on the western coast of Vancouver Island, minutes from the majesty of the Pacific Ocean. Many guests of Tofino hotels take time to visit the Pacific Rim National Park. This scenic wonder, just a half-hour drive from most of the city's accommodations, is worth the time. A favorite place for spotting whales and connecting with culture, the park offers a mix of rainforests and coastal landscapes worth discovering.
The same dramatic views can be found along the shore in Tofino. The Long Beach Lodge Resort (pictured), which offers luxury Tofino lodging at 1441 Pacific Rim Highway, has plenty to brag about, especially when it comes to the scenic setting. Nestled between the national park and Clayoquot Sound, this resort offers a laid-back atmosphere and top-notch amenities. The large windows in the great room, its restaurant, and the guestrooms are perfect for watching the waves crash into the coast. The 41 luxury rooms and suites are decorated in warm, inviting colors with luxury linens and comfortable furnishings. Tofino accommodations also are available at the beachfront cottages. All guests are invited to the great room for a complimentary breakfast or to simply relax by the granite fireplace. The lodge also has a surf school right onsite and easy access to a sandy beach and some great fishing.
Middle Beach Lodge Tofino at 400 MacKenzie Beach Road also offers accommodations right along the shore. This resort offers a mix of cabins and traditional guestrooms in tow lodges, just a short drive south from Long Beach. Whatever your choice for overnight lodging, your package will include breakfast, which is served daily between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. While you're soaking in the views, you can enjoy a morning meal that's so much more than a few danishes. Complimentary coffee and teas are available all day long. After the sun sinks below the horizon, the dining room transforms into one of the most elegant places around to have a meal. On weekends throughout the year, guests of this hotel can make reservations for a meal crafted around local seafood and fine wine—all enjoyed while overlooking MacKenzie Beach.
With its strategic location between the beach and forest, Middle Beach Lodge Tofino offers its guests a place to relax and spend time in the great outdoors. A whale-watching package, available between March and the end of June, includes a two night-stay at one of the nicest Tofino hotels, and a narrated cruise. Other packages include a change to surf some of the best waves in Vancouver Island and kayaking. Once the temperature drops, the packages at Middle Beach Lodge Tofino give you the chance to go skiing or simply relax and watch the storms batter the shore.
Your options for Tofino accommodations include more than sprawling lodges on the beach. For vacations on a budget, you could choose one of the motels or cabins. Tofino house rentals are an option for those looking for distinctive accommodations and plenty of privacy. Bed and breakfast inns give you the chance to meet some of the locals and stay in comfortable accommodations.
The Tofino Village Motel at 542 Campbell Street offers rooms with a view and hospitality in all four seasons. Even if the weather is too cold for sitting out on the porch, you can turn up the heat and admire the beach and mountain scenery from inside your room. The guestrooms come equipped with large en-suite bathrooms, kitchen facilities, and cable TV. Internet access is complimentary, as is coffee service. Discounts are available for groups, as well as for anyone visiting in the spring and fall off-seasons.
