We decided to have a two day getaway to Tin Wis Resort. I read some of the reviews and it sounded decent. Plus the rates in January are great. Our check in was one of smoothest and the quickest I’ve experienced. I guess having BW Rewards card helps. Anyway, the front desk person

I think the hotel is in such a beautiful location - breath taking. The hotel is nice, clean and full of beautiful first nation art work (totems, carvings, pictures). The hot tub area is nice and relaxing - you get a view of the ocean. The resteraunt was nice and the food was

Hi Carla, Thanks so much for the review of your recent stay at the Best Western Tinwis.

This hotel is independently owned and operated by the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation and they do an outstanding job. The staff are friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home the moment we walked into the lobby. We've had dinner here a few times in the past but didn't stay at

You can't find a nicer location than this hotel. We had a pet so were on the ground floor. Open your patio door and the hotel grounds are there, right in front of McKenzie Beach. All the staff were great, and I would recommend the restaurant for breakfast and dinner as well.

By far the best tidal pools were found on this beach. Loved being on the beach. We had a room with two queen beds but only two chairs. Wish it had 4 chairs, made it hard to play games and etc as a family. The service was great every step of the way. The restaurant was

Where can I find a copy of the dinner menu please?
Hi. Didn’t eat there either. I agree wholeheartedly with Geoff J as that’s exactly what we did. Torino Centre is so nearby and lovely places to eat. We ate in all the places he mentioned and great food. The taco truck tacos are delicious but the wait can be considerable given the popularity.

We didn't have a great experience there. Staff both at front of house and in the kitchen didn't seem to have knowledge to execute things. It was the most disappointing seafood experience we've ever had, and on the coast! Quite a few finer places not far...

Any chance you have gum boots and rain coats for guests to borrow?
Sorry, we overlooked your question earlier. Unfortunately, we do not supply boots or rain gear for our guests.

Hello, Yes we did have issues securing the necessary contractors for January so we did our conference centre renovations and the rooms will be done March/April.

We do have a complimentary shuttle that goes into Tofino running until 8pm daily. It is about a 5 minute ride. We also do pick-up and drop-off at the airport, approximately a 40 minute round trip from the resort, so letting us know your flight arrival and departure times in advance is very helpful. There is taxi service as well, but being a smaller community., there is at most usually only 2 cars on the road, John Robertson General Manager Best Western TIn Wis Resort
