We have stayed in the Tofino area dozens of times as it is our "go to" spring break destination but this was our first time trying out Best Western Tin Wis. We found the room to be tastefully decorated and clean with amazing ocean views. The staff was SO friendly, both upon check-in and check-out. The price was reasonable, especially...

Spiritual ~ Whether by the ocean, which is out your front door, or at the restaurant, in your hotel room or walking the grounds, Tin Wis is comfortable, calm & forgiving of all your thoughts and stresses. The staff are genuine, caring & want your stay to be perfect. The restaurant was fun and the servers were so sweet ......

This hotel has an excellent location, walk out door to ocean, internet is lousy but I'm sure due to location, hotel is average, beds not too comfortable, both of us got sore backs, it is an older hotel that has had upgrades, only meals we ate there were breakfast, which was decent and good value, would stay there again.

We selected this hotel because of the Best Western brand and were not disappointed. We chose a kitchenette as we knew the cost of dining in the area as notoriously expensive. It was set up perfectly for the two of us. The water pressure on the 3rd floor was good, but the internet connection was painfully slow. I believe all...

We just recently had the pleasure of staying at the Tin Wis Resort. We decided to stay in Tofino for a a couple of days last minute because a storm was rolling in and we were lucky to get a room at Tin Wis. We did because there was a cancellation. We were pleasantly surprised that the resort was moderately...

Opted for the Tin Wis as it was very moderately priced for being on the water knowing that the rooms were essentially motel style. Pleasantly surprised! Sliding glass doors open up to nicely tended grounds and then right there is the water which offered amazing views. Be aware that this is the smallest of the main beaches with accommodations so...

All rooms have an ocean view here so you don't have to make special requests, plus it's moderately priced. Manicured lawns and paths to the gorgeous beach make for a real treat. Moreover, the place is peppered with gorgeous first nations art: masks, totems, sculptures, cedar halls, photographs. Simply exquisite. Very clean, quality toiletries, an efficient service. Only drawbacks are...

More than adequate accommodations. Clean, comfortable rooms, typical BW. First Nation staffed which was nice to see. Restaurant onsite. Not walking distance to town but most heading to Tofino have transport.
