The hotel guest rooms are adequate but not special. The lobby was not as nice as the Best Western Emerald Isle in Victoria. There is no seating area or TV in the lobby, it would be nice to sit and have a coffee in the morning, while your partner is still sleeping...the restaurant opens at eight. The room we were...

As usual, a nice place to stay. Alot quieter early week rather than a weekend. Freshly remodeled lobby and scenery to enjoy. Staff pleasant to deal with. Definitely worth considering when travelling to Tofino.

Beautiful hotel setting in a secluded cove a few km from Tofino. The service is excellent, the food delicious, it is pet friendly and has a play park for children. You can take lessons at their surf school or surf right from your hotel room door. The treasure of this hotel is the personnel working there. All amazing people.

My wife and I very often stay at The Tin Wis when in Tofino. Rooms always very clean. Every room has an excellent view of McKenzie Beach. The restaurant is very good and we know that travellers from other establishments in Tofino visit it for their breakfast. A highly recommended destination at a very reasonable price.
