Beautiful location right on the Beach. Updated rooms. Appreciate the fresh coffee, cookies and fruit in the lobby; a nice touch! Buy firewood and enjoy the evening at the fire pit. Town is a short drive away.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 January 2017 via mobile

Honestly, hands down nicest Best Western I've stayed in Driving across the Country this past Christmas Season. The front desk staff, very friendly and efficient in providing professional service and accommodating room upgrades. The Executive Suite was impressive as a Dog Friendly room. It provided a huge living space with impressive views of the ocean. Fireplace in the living room...

We booked into the Tin Wis for a 75th birthday celebration and booked out after a secret wedding celebration. The front desk instantly provided us with champagne glasses to celebrate in our executive suite with our surprised friends. The rooms all have ocean views, we stepped out 100 yards and were married informally near the beach. Our third or fourth...

Room was very nice although a bit disappointed the room fireplaces do not work. Beautiful beach and property. Rules are a bit overboard if you are a smoker- pretty much can't smoke anywhere on the property.

We stayed here as it is one of the mostly reasonably priced hotels in Tofino. We were very happy upon arrival as it was much nicer than we expected. The view from the balcony was amazing! There is a restaurant on site which makes it easy for a nice breakfast or dinner after a long day of exploring. I would...

We have stayed here the last 4 times we've come into town. Friendly staff, nice walk out dog friendly rooms and close enough to town to let you enjoy what Tofino has to offer. The beds left us feeling a bit in shambles and our room smelt a bit funky upon arriva and throughout our stay on our last visit...

We LOVED this resort! Easy to find, plenty of free parking, check in was a breeze, and our room was FAB! Our King Suite #407 was a large, spotlessly clean room with a couch, wide screen TV, Keurig coffee maker, cream in the mini-fridge, and a kitchenette with extras. The gas fireplace was lovely, our balcony was huge, and the...

We were heading out of Tofino and stumbled on this place for something to eat. The location is beautiful and the food was excellent. All of the staff were superb apart from the front of house a woman called Ruthie who was very rude, maybe she had had a bad day. It did not put us off our food and...

Very expensive to my tastes, but last minute decision to travel to Tofino didn't leave us many options. The room we were given was fantastic - large, with a kitchette and great bathroom. The view was spectacular. Friendly, helpful staff.

We planned a two night stay at the Tin Wis Resort, but added a 3rd night because we so wanted to enjoy more time at this beautiful setting. I am glad we started our one week road trip on Vancouver Island here. The relaxing, chill atmosphere set the tone for the rest of our vacation. Thank you Tin Wis &...
