“Great Weekender”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Came here on the recommendation of a friend - glad we did. It was a trip with a group of friends, so we got 2 double rooms. Good rates -right on the beach, nice rooms, and hot tubs! Thanks for the great weekend!

We had the chance to stay at the Best Western Tin Wis resort over the weekend, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! The staff at check-in and check-out were very friendly, and the two rooms my group were in were very clean, warm, and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable, and it clear that the rooms had been updated as they had newer linens and televisions. Sadly, we were too busy to get a chance to use the hot tub, but I suppose we'll just have to go back ;)

All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone headed to the Pacific Rim area. Thanks!

At the last minute we decided to drive to the West coast of Vancouver Island, we live on the East coast, as it was a nice day to see the waves. Even though it was short notice we got a room with no problem.
The front desk staff were very welcoming and friendly, our room wasn't yet ready because we were early so we went for a drive to look at the scenery. When we returned and received our room keys, our room was very, very clean.
The view from our room balcony was also very good. The coffee and tea supplies were more generous than I've seen in most hotels which was a nice touch.
We ate in the dining room which has a view of the beach, the service and the food were both excellent.
Breakfast was either an included continental breakfast or an a la carte menu with $3.00 off the bill per person on presentation of room keys.. We both had omelettes which were as good as we've had anywhere.
Checkout was as easy and efficient as checkin in. NO hidden charges. Free Wifi was included and worked well. There are a couple of barbecues for use by guests if you desire.
We only stayed the one night and the only downside was that the mattress was a bit firmer than we like but that's not unusual - they can't please everybody all the time.
Would we go back there on another trip to Tofino - absolutely. Would we reccommend the hotel to other people - we already have.
Thank you to the staff, managemet and owners for a wonderful night.

This was my first stay at the Tin Wis. I travel a lot for work and have stayed in most chain hotels. It's a beautiful setting, right on the beach and very close to the town of Tofino.
The room I had was a King Kitchenette....great decor, fireplace, king bed, great ammenities. Very comfy and cozy. Very clean.

The staff are very nice and helpful. The Manager of the hotel is excellent.

Room Tip: 2nd floor in the 600 room numbers

This property is run by the First Nation here in Tofino. Beautiful friendly people from Angela at check in to the cleaners to the restaurant manager well done! All rooms face a huge green space on the beach. The could use a new outdoor hot tub overlooking beach. But the fitness room is getting remodelled so maybe in plans. More comfy chairs in huge area wood be good. Includes nice breakfast.

We traveled to Tofino several years ago (before March 2012 but that is the oldest option allowed), and would love to return there.
We stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed it. (I'm a bit disturbed by some of the more recent reviews though. Will have to check into this before booking.)
Great location, our room was good, easy beach access, quiet.
All in all, a super stay.
We went nearby to the Wickaninnish for spa fun.
I'm posting now because we weren't members of TripAdvisor when we visited.
We're looking now to schedule a trip again, which may include Tofino so it was on my mind.
