For once, a hotel spurs any cheekily lowercased marketing mumbo-jumbo (we're looking at you, a[A]loft) and simply allows its name to speak for itself: Introducing Black Rock Oceanfront Resort in Ucluelet, British Columbia on Vancouver Island.

Named "Black Rock," because the hotel is perched on black rock cliffs, which nicely leads us to the "Oceanfront" portion of this explanation, and finally, for what makes this a "Resort," we turn to Luxist:

The studio, one and two-bedrooms suites all have views of the ocean or surrounding old growth forest. Each room has a spa-inspired bathroom with a soaking tub and shower, gas fireplace, balcony with outdoor table and a kitchen or kitchenette.

The hotel, made up of 71 guest suites and 62 beach suites, also has three hot pools overlooking the aforementioned ocean and black rock cliffs, as well as an onsite restaurant and spa. But even better than Black Rock Oceanfront Resort's refreshingly simplistic name is it's relatively inexpensive starting rate: $135 per night.
