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.

This properties restaurant has apparently been closed for a couple years but we figured that out after we arrived. This means no dinner and absolutely no room service! Other than that the hotel is great, but without the restaurant I would not call this place a “resort” and definitely not worth $300 a night.

The front desk staff was rude when requested to use the bath tub twice the next day as they had no availability the previous day. The prices at drop-ins are are atleast 20% high.... should have booked online!

My hubby and I stayed here for just one night. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and the room was very nice. Our view from our room was incredible. Waking up to the sound of the waves crashing was so soothing. The beach off the hotel was beautiful. Full delicious breakfast was included with our stay. And a bonus, the hotel soaps and shampoos smelled marvellous. This was my first visit to Tofino and won’t be my last. Absolutely stunning part of our beautiful country. Read less

This hotel has made so many Covid safety policies, I felt very safe here. Breakfast buffet served by an employee was a great idea! Great ocean views from the room and balcony. Highly recommend staying here!

It is a Best Western but the location is absolute top notch. On the beach a few minutes from the center of Tofino. Great views, excellent breakfast even during Covid. Functional rooms with fridges and microwaves. The ability to book the Hot Tub for a private hour (book early each day). This was the perfect place for a few nights.
