Accommodation suggestions please, Vancouver Island

Jump to last reply

Hello, hubby and I will be spending a couple of weeks in Alaska then a week in the Rockies before flying from Calgary to Vancouver Island for the final week of our trip in Aug/Sept 2013.

At this stage we will be arriving early afternoon and plan on getting a hire car.

Sept 9 - arrive and spend the afternoon at Butchart Gardens, stay 1 night in Victoria
Sept 10 - drive to Tofino, stay 4 nights

Sept 11 - drive to Parksville or Qualicum, stay 1 night

Sept 15 - drive to Victoria, stay one night

Sept 16 - return hire car late afternoon/early evening and fly Air Canada through to Sydney, Australia.

I would appreciate some accommodation ideas. Tofino or Ucluelet, Parksville or Qualicum? I am leaning towards Ucluelet but am open to all suggestions. I am thinking maybe the Surf Motel or a B&B in Victoria, we won't be spending much time in the room.

As for Tofino/Ucluelet, a small cabin or similar that we can self cater, would love somewhere with a view and up to $200 per night max but cheaper would be great!!

Also help with Qualicum area, if it's just one night maybe a motel or B&B. We don't need night life, we just want to enjoy the area, have some hikes and chill out, enjoy a meal out once or twice.
Thanks!
