The Inn Welcome to The Inn at Tough City

The Inn At Tough City is a compelling mosaic of people, great food and attitude. Constructed using repurposed material collected from around the world, including stained-glass windows from as far away as Scotland and over 45,000 red bricks harvested from Gastown in Vancouver, ours is as unique a building as you’ll find anywhere in Tofino.

Nestled on the water’s edge of town, looking into the mystic expanse of Clayoquot Sound, our dining room serves top quality sushi using the freshest fish you may ever have. Our rooms, each unique, spacious and quiet, boast amazing views, with large soaker tubs, hardwood floors and fresh clean linens to keep you feeling cozy and warm throughout your stay.

Beyond all the fascinating memorabilia, interesting artifacts and recycled materials, what really makes The Inn feel like a home away from home are the people. Roughly 20 years ago “Crazy Ron” and Johanna Vanderkley had the idea to transform the waterfront lot into a place where guests and staff could enjoy an experience that was both relaxing and exciting. Far from the rigid and uptight air of a resort or chain hotel, ours is a truly home-style environment.

Playful, honest and a little bit like staying at your crazy but favourite uncle’s house on vacation, the energy at The Inn is one of family. From our big, friendly, furry gatekeeper, King, to the staff who return year after year, we want you to treat our place as if it were your own. Enjoy a drink, have a great meal and then go in any direction you choose! We’re here to make it all happen.

Love coming in from the surf and settling in for a sushi feed, hot sake and a laugh. It's always a great time and I make sure I visit every time I'm in Tofino! Christian Barnard, Victoria
