Best Ucluelet Accommodations
Looking for the best places to stay in Ucluelet? For a small town, Ucluelet has some really nice options for the perfect getaway – whether you plan on a weekend away or a week!
To be clear, Ucluelet is a getaway-worthy destination on its own, but I do want to mention that it is also only a 40 minute drive from Tofino. As Tofino can get very expensive and quite booked up during peak times, a Ucluelet hotel or cozy oceanfront Ucluelet cabin can make for an excellent alternative. I for one, have never visited Tofino without spending time in Ucluelet, and vice versa.
Read on to discover our favourite hotels in Ucluelet, followed by some lovely Ucluelet cabins and vacation rental options.
