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.

Great property! Renovations coming soon that will make this place top notch. The service and staff are great! Try the included breakfast, great! The views from the property are amazing and the grounds were very clean.

Tofino is always one of our favorite spots to park our RV for a week or two in the fall but this was a quick one night getaway so we booked at the BW. The hotel is laid out so every room (I think) has an ocean view. Fantastic view from the breakfast room and a great selection of hot food for breakfast.

We recently stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The room was large and cozy, amazing views and sunsets and perfect for exploring the beach as well as jumping in the car to check out the area. We had great service and will definitely return.

Our third floor room offered a fantastic view of Mackenzie Beach and the Pacific Ocean. The cold, clear weather we had offered stunning sunsets every evening. The beach was moments away. Great location and a very comfortable room. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Our next trip to the west coast of Vancouver Island will have us staying here… Read more

Beautiful view, stunning sunsets, great service. My only complaint is that they no longer offer full restaurant service and as of next week will only be offering a continental breakfast. Very disappointed that this is happening.
