Great location, all rooms had great views. We could enjoy the sunset from our room and from the beach. The beach is very close to the hotel. Rooms were big and clean. Service at breakfast was slow and the internet was terrible. But we recommend it and would return to the the hotel.

The hotel is in a beautiful location. We stayed two days on business, and my only concerns were the Wifi and the restaurant. The Wifi was basically unusable due to dropped connections and slow speed and the one time I went to the restaurant for lunch, they said they weren't opening that day due to lack of staff (with 6...

This is our 3rd time staying at the Tin Wis for our annual trip to Tofino and we love it. Every room faces the ocean, great beach and facilities and the staff are always very welcoming and friendly.

The new manager is committed to making this the best hotel in Tofino. I know he's got stiff competition and a bit of work to do, but it is stunningly located, very comfortable and offers great value. With a few more finishing touches, it will be well on the way.

I will start off by saying that this issue is totally my fault...but I think the hotel could have helped out a bit. I reserved a room last month (July 24th) and got ill so I totally forgot about it and my credit card was charged $273.21. I called and asked if they could do anything at all to help... More

The hotel is right on the beach- fantastic ground level room if you have kids as they can play outside easily. Rooms were fine but all worth the price just for location. Only had trouble with WiFi. Would book again!
