Welcome to Tofino Paddler’s Inn
Highway 4 is open but there are delays and closure times during the week so plan your travel times when it is open. The detour route is an option from Duncan BC but it is long and on a slow going dirt road. Be careful with Google Maps as it is not always accurate so make sure you take the turn off to Port Alberni onto highway 4. Check Drive BC befor travelling to make sure there are no closures for safety reasons such as high winds.
Located in the historic heart of downtown Tofino
The Tofino Paddler’s Inn, perched on the harbourfront in downtown Tofino, is a property with incredible character. The building, nearing 100 years old, is the town’s original hotel – serving mariners arriving by boat since the early 1900’s.
We pride ourselves on clean, simple and funky accommodation for the traveller or kayaker. With only 5 rooms, and shared facilities, many new friendships may be made as people share their various adventures and experiences enjoying the area.
Enjoy sitting in the kitchen with a fresh cup of coffee while looking out the window watching boats cruising by and kayakers heading out on tours to explore all the area offers. The summer sunsets seen from the patio are a highlight of every stay.
Paddler’s Inn is a truly west coast experience – a gateway all the beauty and adventure offered by spectacular Clayoquot Sound. We are located on the second floor of the building above Tofino Sea Kayaking and Harbourview Coffeehouse.
Guests receive a 10% discount on any of our Day Sea Kayaking tours.
Tofino Paddlers Inn honours the traditional territories of the Hesquit, Ahousaht and Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations. We work in cooperation and respect of their traditional unceded title of this land.
