This was our 4th stay at the TIn Wis since 2006 and things just get better. The hotel is run by the local First Nations community under the Best Western franchise and they have continually developed and improved the site over the years.
Every room has an ocean view and it is stunning especially on a sunny, cloudless day and a walk along McKenzie beach is very therapeutic. The rooms are nicely maintained and have coffee/tea making facilities and the all important mini-fridge. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean with a glass (or two) of BC white wine is my favourite pastime.
There is a self serve launderette on site which is useful for long term travellers.
The whole staff from reception down to housekeeping are wonderfully welcoming, helpful and efficient.
The restaurant, has recently been renovated and the breakfast and dinner choices are very favourable. The cooking is superb with local ingredients where possible.
This was probably our last visit to Tofino and we shall treasure our memories at the Tin Wis forever

Room Tip: Upper rooms offer the best ocean views.

This is a nice hotel with most of the amenities. Our room had a balcony with a great view of the ocean. Well appointed but a bit over priced. It had the look that some folks were not taking care of the little things, especially the walkways to your room.

Beautiful location overlooking beach and islands on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Relaxing atmosphere with friendly helpful staff. close to Tofino from where a number of site seeing tours can be undertaken from Whale watching to walks on an uninhabited island.

Spent a weekend at this hotel. Had stayed before 20 years ago. The location can't be beat. Right on MacKenzie Beach. Super quiet location. No traffic noise. Only a couple of other resorts in the area, so beach was pretty secluded and sheltered. Every room faces the water with either a balcony or patio. We had a kitchenette, but found out the next morning the fridge was not working, so lost all our food. Housekeeping was very quick to respond when we asked for extra pillows and blankets. On-site restaurant had windows on three sides, so terrific views. Lots of dinner choices including fresh seafood, but server did not tell us of grilled halibut, which I would have ordered had I known it was available. Had breakfast buffet on our last morning, but was disappointed no fruit and limited veggies offered. Wifi signal was not very strong.

Room Tip: All rooms face the water, but centre of facility have more straight on views.

We spent three nights at the Tin Wis and enjoyed our stay.
We were in a first floor room in an adjacent but separate accommodation block, overlooking the sea.
The bed and bedding were supremely comfortable.
The room was spotlessly clean and had a small fridge, a microwave, a coffee maker and a kettle.
We also had a balcony with chairs and there was a seating area in the room itself. Wifi was free.
There was a much appreciated laundry room downstairs. The first wee box of washing powder was free, obtained from reception. Another of the downstairs rooms had a soft drinks vending machine and an ice maker.
There were gas BBQs for guest use. And a gym!
Staff were welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed the wee notes the cleaning ladies left us each day.
The restaurant served good food. Breakfast portions were especially generous.
Tin Wis, though a Best Western branded establishment, is owned and run by First Nation people.
There is an attached business offering paddle boarding tuition.
Wildlife, especially the avian variety, abounds. We saw Ospreys, bald eagles and - highlight of my visit, a humming bird.
Another first for us was the Tsunami warning information! I'm pretty sure this is a very rare occurrence.
Tofino is a very relaxing place and we'd happily stay at the Tin Wis again.
