Best Western Tin Wis Resort
Ranked #6 of 16 Hotels in Tofino
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We spent two days at this hotel in mid-August. The location is great and the rooms are nice and clean. The availability of an onsite laundry was a plus since the hotel is right on the beach. Internet access was spotty at best but perhaps to be expected given the location. We would stay here again

Great hotel, quiet, good food, and breathtaking view of the ocean. There in August and it was packed but not a thing to complain about. We had adjoining rooms which was lots of fun. Parking is a premium but enough for all the guests.

We booked at the last minute in high season and were fortunate to get a reservation at a good property at an acceptable price.
The views and the beach coupled with the natural surrounding in Tofino contributed to making every day a relaxed day.
The on-site restaurant was better than average in price and quality from the others we ate at.

Room Tip: The 500 block appears to be the area with the panoramic views.

This is by far of the best Best Western's we have ever stayed at. The staff were excellent. Tofino is a little pricy, but then it all is. This hotel is right on McKenzie Beach and central to everything. I would recommend this hotel.

The Tin Wis Resort located in Tofino, British Columbia had above average excellence for service, room cleanliness and appearance, and exceptional food services. The staff were all very prompt, polite, most helpful with information and recommendations. The location right on long beach is a view to be seen and treasured, whether sunny or a dewy day, it was a great experience. Wonderful spot for any occasion and great for families or couples wanting a memorable getaway.

We stayed in many places on our recent trip to Canada, from Hostels (Banff) to well renowned lodge/hotels (Painter's, Campbell River). Tin Wis was the only place that I felt provided nothing like value for money. It was by far the most expensive place we stayed ($299 per night, before you add any taxes - including the annoying bedroom tax; I thought the idea of a hotel was to provide a bedroom, rather than this being an extra that should be taxed!). For that money, you will get a view (albeit of the fog rolling in, or the rain, depending on your luck). There's no pool, and this was missed on our trip as the weather was so poor. Staff were helpful enough.

We had a wonderful stay at the Tin Wis Hotel. The people were very friendly and helpful. the setting was beautiful, if the morning with the fog coming in. Will certainly go back. We also enjoyed Tofino, our first time there.
