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.

We have visited Tofino several times and stayed In almost every location. Tin Wis is less expensive and as good or better then some of the high end expensive hotels. It was extremely clean, bed was fabulous and we has everything we needed in the kitchen. Our view was spectacular

I stayed for a surf weekend and it was perfect! I pre-booked the hot tub for a post surf soak with five of my friends and the icing on the cake was the incredible sunset on the beach! The staff were friendly and responsive and I felt totally safe to be here during the pandemic.

The resort is an excellent place to spend a few days in Tofino. It is situated right on the beach front allowing direct views onto the sea and sunset. The rooms are clean and well provisioned, especially those with kitchenettes. We visited during the time of Covid and felt very comfortable with the precautions being taken. The front staff were particularly friendly and helpful. Tofino is only a short drive or medium walk away and there are some shops within a few minutes walk. Our room was on the ground floor with a small patio and table so we could eat outside with a view of the sea. Prices are quite reasonable in the fall. Strongly recommended. We will definitely return.
