Hopeful for a better visit next time
This was our fifth year staying here, once or twice a year, and was the first time we weren’t blown away by how amazing it was. I am not sure if it was because we have been there enough times that the magic has worn off, or if this trip was just different. The microwave had been used by previous guests to burn something horribly. And while it didn’t knock you in the face when you walked in it could definitely be smelt, and the more time spend in the living area of the cottage the worse it was to the point of feeling nauseous. The team at LBL did clean it again, but it would have been much nicer if they removed the microwave as they had initially told us they would. It meant for the weekend we were there the living room and kitchen were not useable spaces for any length of time. They gave us 75 dollars back, which was nice but I would have preferred to have been able to use the entire cottage that we had paid for; it wasn’t about the money as I would have gladly moved rooms and paid the difference to change. LBL did look into this but unfortunately they were fully booked. All of the staff were very kind and helpful, especially Glenn as the front desk and Bob in maintenance. I will definitely be coming back to stay at LBL, and with the hope it will be the same as before.
Awesome cabins for families with dogs
Stayed 4 nights with friends in Feb. Great cabins for 2 families with dogs. Very cozy and well supplied. Was easy to surf off and on during the day and pop in the hot tub out back to warm up! Will return again!
Another Wonderful Stay at Long Beach Lodge
We have always had a wonderful time staying at Long Beach Lodge!!! I'm not sure if you can ask for a better place...the staff are great, the food very good, the beach amazing, the Great Room perfect, and the Ocean Front rooms could not be better! We always feel "at home" staying at LBL and are always sad to leave. If there were a few minor improvements/comments we would suggest... - Might be nice to have a few happy hour food options. The happy hour drinks are great, a few bites to go with them (ie. half priced pizza etc) would be nice. In fact, I think that was the case a number of years ago. - The fire in the Great Room was not lit once during our whole stay (at least that we saw). I understand it was windy and that causes smoke to come in, but we did miss the nice fire in the evening. - The prices have increased for a stay. I can appreciate the cost of living going up, but it does make it pretty pricey for a few nights in an Ocean Front room (still a better option than the Wick though). - A resident cat in the Great Room would be a nice addition...lol (yes, we are cat people). - On check in we suggest asking the guest if they would like their room cleaned each day. We are low-maintenance so didn't need a cleaning and wanted to make sure the staff didn't feel they had to keep checking. All of these are pretty small issues/suggestions. We loved our stay as always and one of the really special things is the staff is always so amazing (special note of how great Monika was whenever we came into the dining area! So fun!). So, thank you for yet another memorable and relaxing stay. We will see you again soon!!!!!
Searching for Winter Storms
We love going to Tofino winter or summer. Long Beach Lodge is one of our favourite places to stay. On this winter trip we stayed in a Rainforest Cottage with another couple. Great accommodation for friends to spend quite time and visit. We were able to fully cook a whole meal in the kitchen. The Great Room restaurant and lounge may be the prettiest room on the coast. The food and ambiance are wonderful as well. Nothing is perfect. What matters is how issues are addressed when they come up. On this trip, there was a minor squeak in a bathroom door. We mentioned it and it was fixed within a couple of hours. Very friendly and helpful staff throughout our stay.
Excellent Valentine's Day stay
Thank you to all the staff at the Long beach Lodge for our incredible staycation on Valentine's Day. My partner and I received beautiful chocolates in our room (and wine!), our dinner was absolutely excellent and the next morning we borrowed boogie boards and set off into the misty beach for sun. The surf club offered excellent service and the front desk staff were equally warm. Top marks go to our server at night, Aaron (what a charming guy!), and the Executive Chef Shaun for such an incredible meal. We've dined at almost every restaurant in town and our Valentine's meal was 5 STARS, easily. The bed linens were very soft and we loved the view from our room. Cheers and hope to stay with you again soon!
