Stayed at Tin Wis Feb 1-3 with a deal from LivingSocial that included 2 nights for $199. We've been to Tofino a couple times, and I guess were spoiled by staying at Cox Bay Resort and Black Rock.
Tin Wis is perfectly situated on Mcknenzie beach, a beautiful beach thats perfect for swimming or playing in in the summer. Its also dog friendly which is nice...there were lots of happy dogs bounding up and down the beach.
The hotel is old... we ended up in a queen room, which consisted of 2 queen beds, a chair, a small table and a mini fridge. Sitting in bed one evening was not the most comfortable experience...we asked at the front desk if they had any rooms with a single queen bed and a couch or a loveseat, but were advised all the queen rooms have two beds and no couches.
We were also hoping to relax in the room and play cards by the fireplace....but once again, no fireplace, and only one chair. We ordered pizza one night, and had difficulty eating it as there were no paper towels, plates etc etc....
VERY simple continental breakfast was included. Staff in the dining room did not appear to happy to be there.
The free wifi was patchy and kept cutting out.
There is an indoor "hot tub", but the room was gross and mildewy, and we were too disgusted to go in. There was a "gym" over the hot tub, but walls were being painted and it was not useable.
We checked online, and the regular winter rate is $169 a night....for that price you could stay at black rock, or get a one bedroom suite at Cox Bay... Tin Wis' pricing just seems out of touch with the superior hotels they're competing with.
