Probably the best beach we've been at in Canada. All rooms look onto the water. Access rooms from outside motel-style. Seem to have received a recent Reno, though usual wear and tear. Large flat beach, no weeds or rocks, water is cold but worth the pain for a great swim, lots of tide pools at edge to explore. Neighbouring properties... More

My partner and I stayed with our kids for a wonderful weekend. The grounds were immaculate, the beach was spectacular and the hotel was excellent. Very clean and modern. All rooms featured a view of the ocean. The entire team really made us feel welcome and I really appreciated how the front desk staff were so willing to answer all... More

We've just had a three-night stay at the BW Tin Wis with our student daughters, in between a few days in Vancouver City and another week in Ontario. At short notice we found it hard to secure rooms in the Tofino area for the dates we wanted, and were relieved when we found this. If this hotel were in a... More

I must confess that the last time I stayed here was a couple of years ago. The Tin Wis satisfies most of the requirements of a nice stay. The rooms were comfortable but not lavish. The staff was friendly and helpful. But few come here for hotel amenities. It's all about the beach and the location. The Mackenzie Beach is... More

We needed a last minute room pet-friendly room in Tofino and ended up choosing Tin Wis for it's excellent location/proximity to MacKenzie beach (calm bay, soft sand, family and dog friendly, paddle boarders, cruise bikes, beach fires, etc). We paid the same price for a ho-hum two queen room that we would've paid for a luxury studio in Ucluelet at... More

This place has huge potential, being right on the beach just outside Tofino. It is a very relaxed, not-too-fussy spot so is good for kids. Parking is almost at your doorstep. No air conditioning which seems to be very common on the island in general. It does cool down at night but sometimes there is not enough air movement for... More

Ample parking, friendly reception decorated with a First Nations theme as is most of the hotel. All rooms face the beach & sea with either a patio or balcony for the upper floors which is ideal for the spectacular sunsets or just watching the dog walkers during the day. You're allowed to have camp fires on the beach and reception... More

This is a standard Best Western in a very beautiful location steps away from one of Tofino's great, wide beaches. You are paying for the beach and that luxury is not cheap. The restaurant is pretty routine but fairly priced. My big beef is the terrible wi-fi service. Spent an hour in the "business center" trying to print out a... More
