Basic room on a beautiful property on the beach. The rooms need some updating. The restaurant food was good, the ambiance was AMAZING! The restaurant had a west coast modern look and feel... just gorgeous. Reception staff provided average service. There were however, fresh baked warm cookies available in the afternoons for all guests. Hotel in a good location. Right... More

I stayed at the Tin Wis for three nights for a friend's wedding. I stayed in Room 201, which was close to the stairs and very handy to the outdoor shower, where you could wash your feet off after walking on the beach. The room was very comfortable and spacious - lots of pillows on the bed, nice linens, very... More

This hotel is right on Mckenzie Beach. An excellent atmosphere and great view out the window. Internet service is slow. Breakfast was okay, but not memorable. Staff were polite and helpful. The rooms were easily accessible. The laundry service was barely adequate as only one washer worked. The general appearance of the hotel was appealing although you could tell that... More

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...

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.
