The Inn at Tough City lets guests experience all the best comforts of civilization, on a rugged, windswept coast that feels like the end of the earth.”
The Inn at Tough City

“Seen at a distance through sea salted car windows, The Inn at Tough City looks as if it's been in the village of Tofino forever. It could have been a grand old house, a general store, or a cannery.

“Take a closer look, though, and you'll see the weathered brick walkway and courtyard, the wrap around verandah, the gleaming hardwood floors in the foyer and an artfully displayed collection of antiques and memorabilia. Throw in a genius use of colour throughout the building, timeless stained glass pieces and a captivating view of the Tofino harbour, and you have an inn completely like no other.”

We welcome you to come and enjoy a night's stay in a gorgeous room overlooking the heart of Tofino's harbor. Our Inn offers a unique blend of antiquities with all the conveniences of the new millennium. Centrally located, our Inn commands a breathtaking view of the pulse of Clayoquot Sound.

Don't look for a new motel! Our Inn is constructed with 45,000 recycled bricks brought from Old Downtown Vancouver, the hardwood floors are from an old racket club and 90% of the stained glass windows are original, collected from as far away as Scotland.

We welcome you to this..... our dream come true! A little piece of paradise, 20 years in the making, will, upon your departure, leave you with a sense of serenity and peace of mind.
