Great room, the view of the water just makes it. Room was clean and staff were friendly. Would return again. Only issue we had was the restaurant service, or lack of. We saw Justin trudeau paddle surfing from our room!

Excellent location on the beach, just outside of Tofino. Some of the Front desk staff were not the most friendly, but cleaning staff super. Ground floor room was good, with unobstructed views of the ocean, and ability to walk out right on to the beach from the sliding door. Adequate fridge, microwave, coffee maker, standard Best Western room, comfortable bed,...

We stayed here back in 2013 for a few nights in April. It was still pretty cold and it was really windy out on the beach. The hotel itself was clean and quiet, with a big comfy king sized bed. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. I think the best thing about this place was that it is right...

I tend to think of chain hotels as pretty much all the same, but we were quite impressed with this place. You can't beat the views, for one thing - rolling waves, the glistening sandy beach, a scattering of treed rocky islands leading your eye out to the horizon. The room was comfortable and pleasant, although the fireplace was not...

Beautiful beach, very sincere and friendly staff. All rooms face the ocean. The Chefs do a great job with the food and the presentation. There are Bbq's on the beach, swing sets. All in all a great place. Thanks

Enjoyed a multi day stay over the winter holiday season. The hotel is right on the beach and all rooms have views of the ocean. The Staff are very helpful and friendly. rooms are kept spotless. We chose the breakfast option which included a choice of 3 breakfasts. the dining was good but not great.

Stayed 2 nights at this beach-front hotel...beautiful location, friendly staff and relatively quiet. Enjoyed walking the beach and taking advantage of the two indoor hot tubs. Dogs stay for an extra $20 per night, which seemed reasonable for the locale. Winter rates of about $120.00 per night made it affordable!

The view of the ocean is spectacular at the Tin Wis. The friendly, welcoming staff enhanced the experience. They were all very knowledgeable and helpful. The restaurant served an excellent soup and yummy stew. The hot tub overlooking the ocean was welcome on sub zero nights.

2 nights in a double room with our teenager in December. The room was very large and big enough for all of us to not get in each other's way. Coffee/tea set up was very appreciated and housekeeping staff made sure we had lots of extra coffee and creams. Room was very clean. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant one morning...
