The word "luxe" jumps up at the mention of Tofino, but the happy reality is, there's a full range of accommodations encompassing grand resorts, hostels, motels, vacation rentals, B&Bs, hotels and inns, to suit every budget.
Many of the resorts, lodges and inns have prime oceanfront locations, with many rooms overlooking pale sand, long beaches, and powerful waves during winter storm-watching season.
A whopping 50 B&Bs and dozens of well-heeled vacation rental homes, cabins and cottages offer charms in the order of beachside and rainforest locations, hot tubs, barbecues and fireplaces.
There is also a wilderness resort located in Clayoquot Sound that combines wilderness outpost, fishing camp, dude ranch and eco-experience.
Campgrounds abound but book early. There are options for RV campers and tent campers, including some beachside locations. Green Point Campground is the only campground in the Long Beach Unit of Pacific Rim National Park.
