Hotel room

Although very much the working fishing village, Ucluelet offers an oversized range of accommodations.

More than a dozen hotels and resorts, two hostels, more than a half dozen scenically situated campgrounds, and over 40 charming bed and breakfasts, motels, cottages and cabins.

A top-of-the-line resort with a restaurant and spa is strategically positioned atop a rocky promentory in Ucluelet with ocean and rainforest views. Secluded wilderness resort rooms and cottages that are only accessible by boat or air are also available.

What distinguishes "Ukee" (as the locals call it) is that whatever the level of accommodation, it's probably in the middle of nature, within eyeshot of Pacific rollers, golden beaches, old-growth rainforest and coastal wildlife.
