The hotel

Thanks to the fabulous west coast setting, Best Western Tin Wis offers award-winning accommodation right on the sandy shoreline of Mackenzie Beach. This is one of Vancouver Island's most naturally beautiful stretches of protected coast with whale watching, paddle boarding and surfing all fantastic excuses to get closer to the aquamarine swells of the Pacific. Guest rooms pay homage to both the heritage and the natural surroundings of British Columbia with newly renovated interiors offering both comfort and style with some stunning coastal views to match. Another popular place to simply sit and stare is The Beachfront Bistro which presents a wonderful selection of fresh regional dishes as well as a wine list showcasing BC's finest. After a good day spent strolling through the surf or reclining on the bistro's outdoor patio, there's nothing better than a soak in the hotel's whirlpool tub or quick stretch at the gym to ease you into the evening. Explore a little further afield and you'll find national parks, wild trails and local seafood restaurants with the chance to sample a locally brewed craft beer often providing an ideal accompaniment as the sun sets on yet another day of blissful relaxation.

I stay at the tinwis every single week for sometime now and have gotten to know the staff very well, in particular shaylene, Cassandra and Lacey They’re always smiling when at the desk and always have great suggestions for things to do. If I could give 10 stars it would be to the dedicated staff. The housekeeper cleaning my room, Russ & Anna were very polite, weren’t shy at all to ask how my day is going while also asking if I needed anything, excellent service I leave a little to early to make breakfast at 8:00 allways made it when you opened up at 6 am , but of course I will see you all & the amazing view next week!

Family weekend getaway to the Pacific Rim, and we thought we would try staying at the BW Tin Wis. Our family includes 2 adults two teenagers and a Boston Terrer. Simply put, the room is great, the amenities are great, the free breakfast every morning is a bonus, and the fire pits by the breach are fantastic. The staff are really friendly and helpful - love that this hotel is operated by local First Nations people! 🥰 We had a great time. Will definitely stay there again! Read less

A very nice cozy hotel and restaurant located on the ocean. A huge beach to walk on and enjoy with your pet(s). Room was comfy and cozy. Close to the camp grounds to meet with friends. Looking forward to our next trip.

This hotel is out of this world! The staff is attentive, the rooms we stayed in were clean and quiet and the view of from our balcony of the beach in front of us left us almost speechless, Wow, is an appropriate word. The continental breakfast has lost of options and the food is fresh. My spouse and I really loved it there and decided to extend our stay by an additional night. We received a free upgrade because we are BW members and it truly was an outstanding room with bathtub for two in front of a huge window overlooking the beach. We had a kitchen and living room seperate from our bedroom. We fell in love with this resort and plan on returning again. Read less
