Tin Wis is a beach-front property, facing McKenzie Beach, ocean-side of Tofino, with sheltering islands calming the ocean, well suited to paddle-boarding, compared to the beaches south which have larger waves, for surfing, and ocean-only views. Tin Wis has a variety of rooms, with reasonable furnishings, a modest fitness and jacuzzi centre, and a consistent and modest [for Tofino] priced... More

We had a lovely suite overlooking Mackenzie Beach. Our rooms - living room/kitchenette, bedroom, bath and large deck were clean, cheerful, and very much part of First Nation art theme. Beautiful buildings with West Coast FN art throughout. The staff were friendly and very efficient. We'll return again.

This is a gem amongst places to stay for a reasonable cost. Value that you get for your dollar is superb. The rooms are nice (for the views, the further upstairs you are the better) and all are with a view: either floor level access which has certain advantages, or up a bit. The resort has beach access which is... More

This is a lovely setting and a very comfortable hotel. Every room faces the beach. The room is well equipped and clean. There is a fridge.The restaurant overlooks the ocean and served the best Thai curry i ever tasted. The price was reasonable considering the high cost of nearby hotels.

A great hotel with fantastic views, able to walk straight out onto the beach. The staff were always extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very good. The restaurant exceeded my expectations. Overall a fantastic experience. I would stay here again.

We have been going to Mackenzie beach for about 10 years now and stayed at numerous establishments and decided to try this lodge with our two english smooth haired Fox terriers. We loved the stay here they were very accommodating for our dogs, and us. Would recommend this place and will be happy to go back again.

Situated steps away from a beautiful calm and sheltered MacKenzie Beach this is the perfect place to stay. Rooms are large and clean with stunning views. Playground, picnic area and restaurant on site and only a few minutes from Tofino. The staff was helpful and friendly. Ideal for couples or families. I can't wait to return.

Spent 1 night. Can't see how it is a resort. The rooms are more of a motel. Lower end and a little out dated. The grounds are well kept and close to the beach area. The price was more than what the room was worth.

The location is amazing. All rooms have individual entry. If you specifically ask for a room on the first floor, you can open your patio door and run out to the beach! The beach is nice and sandy; however, as expected the water is cold (get a wet suit). Very chill atmosphere on the beach. Hotel property has a hot... More
