Best Western Tin Wis Resort
Ranked #6 of 16 Hotels in Tofino
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We traveled the last week of September 2012 so this review is a bit late. We picked this hotel because we had a gift card from Best Western and we were sticker shocked by the prices at most of the other nicer Tofino resorts. That said, I was very happy with this resort.

The resort itself was ideally situated on a lovely cove not too far from the town of Tofino and close enough to the Pacific Rim National Park. We had a standard room on the second floor. The room was clean, comfortable and had the most amazing view of the ocean (all rooms do!). We walked down to the beach with our drinks and watch the sunset. We even had a small beach fire. We had dinner one night at the hotel restaurant and it was excellent. I had the special which was the grilled fresh halibut. Brought in fresh daily!

We stayed 3 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

BTW, just around the corner and across the street from this hotel is a neat little village of shops and food stands. At the very back is a food truck called Tacofino. Trust me, you have never tasted tacos this good. This taco truck was highlighted on one of those food shows. I think they're only open until 6 so it's more of a lunch thing. Plus, I think they're only open during the warmer months. Be sure to check it out.

Room Tip: Don't think you can go wrong with any room as they are all oceanfront! Most hotels charge a high...

This hotel has a great location and is a great value in the area. The hotel was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The room was spacious and there was plenty of room for the four of us. The view from the room is incredible. The beach was spectacular. The sand was amazing for playing in. The kids dug, made castles, searched for shells and had a fantastic football game. Just to the left on the beach was a fantastic tidal pool area for spying sea creatures. Totally amazing experience staying here. Service seemed to be lacking in the restaurant but the location makes up for that.

We stayed at the Tin Wis resort on Boxing Day, 2012. The sun came out, we walked the beach, we saw eagles and surfers and many happy people. The rooms were clean, well appointed, and very large. Every room has a fabulous view.

I have been to this beautiful property twice in 2012 and I would highly recommend it. I found the staff at the front desk and in housekeeping all very helpful and accommodating. We had a top floor room looking out over Mackenzie beach and the view was breathtaking. I would refer friends and family to this property in a heartbeat

Room Tip: Top floor is the best

We stayed for one night at a Last Minute Special Rate of CAD 111.99 on BEST WESTERN website and was pleasantly surprised with this First Nations run hotel. Our quiet room was on the second floor of the main building. From the small balcony or the window on the upper floor, you get a direct view of the waves and Mackenzie beach. Free continental breakfast is adequate. Front desk staff are helpful and courteous. It was mostly the view of the beach and ocean that was stunning.

Special package listed in Vancouver newspaper, $269 plus taxes for 3 nights including continental breakfast between Christmas and New Years. ($60 extra for 3rd adult for the 3 nights). Best rate on their web site was $119 plus taxes per night.
All rooms have a great view of the ocean (Rooms in the 100's are on the ground floor of the main building, 200's on the second floor, 300's on the ground floor of the southern or left hand building which angles closer to the ocean, 400's on the second floor, 500's, 600's and 700's in the northern building on the ground, second and third floor respectively). Hot tub, sauna and fitness centre are at the ocean end of the south building. Dining room and lobby are in the middle building, with fine views from the restaurant.
Room was clean, well maintained, beds were comfortable, good shower pressure, no sounds from adjacent rooms. We were on the second floor of the main building so no noise from above. Free wi-fi was reasonably fast. Business centre has only one computer and a printer. It seemed slower than wi-fi in the rooms.
Didn't have dinner in the restaurant so can't comment. No lunch service, at least in low season. Free continental breakfast was fresh fruit, 3 kinds of yogurt, 3 types of dry cereal, cinnamon buns, strudel, bagels and muffins, waffle maker, tea and coffee. Toast, juice, eggs, breakfast meats can be ordered a la carte for an extra charge.
One day our room wasn't made up, even though the 'please make-up room' sign was posted on the door for over 4 hours. That and the fact that some of the staff could have been a little warmer and more helpful meant that I couldn't give a 5 circle rating, but for the rate paid, we felt it was excellent value.

Room Tip: If we went back, would choose the top floor of the south building to be closer to ocean for wave sou...
