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.

Have stayed here twice and each time was better than the last, right on the beach with lots of things to do.had a suite with cooking facilities so we bought seafood in Tofino and had a great seafood feast.

The staff here are friendly and efficient. The rooms are clean and have a most excellent view. The breakfast buffet is great as well, though do not go too close to the end of the serving hours as there is usually a rush of people and tables can be more difficult to find. We can definitely see ourselves coming back here in the future.

Beautifully situated on the beach. Was perfect. We spent some quality time on the beach. Close to town of Tofino where we enjoyed a nice lunch. I would definitely return. In fact we plan to later in the year.

The hotel is located on the same beach area that we were surfing on. The room was clean and had everything needed for a enjoyable nights stay. The complementary breakfast has many choices and was a nice start to our day. We are a family of four with a 4 and 7 year old. We would stay here again.

We stayed here in Oct. 2019. I had a cousin visiting from Ontario and she wanted to see the ocean and the rainforest - so we decided to go to Tofino but it was short notice and my usual haunts were all booked up. Tin Wis offered the 2 queen bed room with a view of the ocean and at a very reasonable price. I just asked for a room in the most recent building as I heard sometimes there are older, not as nice rooms. We were so happy with our room. Very clean, great for two people - fridge, microwave, coffee maker, the usuals. But the view was a perfect ocean view and we just walked down to the beach. Close to town, and well lit parking lot. We also had the buffet breakfast which was okay. I think it was $17 per person. Good bacon and scrambled eggs. But, it's a nice hotel, and I will stay there again when I can't get into my other favourite places. Read less
