Best Western Tin Wis

Tofino, Vancouver Island

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.

Excellent location. Rooms are outstanding as they all face the ocean with a great beach in front of you. The buffet breakfast, which was included, was delicious with a great selection. Super staff, very accommodating. We can't wait to go back.

We needed a hotel for one night, so just quickly booked the Best Western as you usually know what you get. Well this place far exceeded our expectations and is actually a destination hotel. Would definitely come here for a few days. The location is stunning. The piece of beach that it is on is absolutely beautiful. Views from the room also spectacular. The rooms are spacious, cleans and have a little kitchen including a two burner stove. The king size bed was super comfortable. There is no restaurant but again, you can cook in your room. Breakfast buffet is included with the price. The breakfast included hot dishes such as eggs, sausages, pancakes... Staff was also very friendly without being over the top. We highy enjoyed our stay and will return. Read less

Great accommodation, that was just newly renovated. Fantastic, helpful and friendly staff. Dog friendly my Julius loved it, very important for me. Location right by the beach. Short distance to Wild Side Grill, Gelato and more. Shuttle available to get you to and from. Buffet breakfast included. Great vacation.

Besides renovations being done our experience was fantastic. Hotel staff were super friendly and informative. The view from our room was spectacular. The breakfast buffet far exceeded our expectations. I only wish we had stayed here years ago. Already booking our next stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights and lucked out by getting the newly renovated room facing the ocean. The staff were very kind and helpful but the restaurant/bar is closed indefinitely which was a pain. Now if you want to have a drink and a meal you have to drive somewhere. There are a few small places nearby so we ended up visiting neighbouring resorts… Read more
Stayed here for 2 nights and lucked out by getting the newly renovated room facing the ocean. The staff were very kind and helpful but the restaurant/bar is closed indefinitely which was a pain. Now if you want to have a drink and a meal you have to drive somewhere. There are a few small places nearby so we ended up visiting neighbouring resorts to have drinks and a snack. The Property exceeded our expectations as far as beach location and the building was nice. The only complaint I’d have about the newly renovated room was there was a family staying above us and their walking was very loud with kids running back and forth. That’s not the hotels fault so I’d still recommend this place as long as the restaraunt was open :) Read less
