We had a pleasurable stay, the location is beautiful, every room has a view, fridge in the room very convenient, comfortable beds. My only complaint would be the price for the room was high and that the front desk could not initially find our reservation. Other than that they were very nice and accomodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not impressed and noisy"
We were very disappointed with this hotel. The price would indicate a better quality hotel but we had to ask for our room to be clean and we complained three times because of noise. The next day after going to the front desk twice we were able to speak to the manager and he was going to look into it for us. When we go back to Tofino again we will not […] stay here.

"A beautiful well appointed place."
Wish we could hve stayed longer..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely location overlooking beach. Room comfortable and well equipped, although decor dark and gloomy.Hotel let down by restaurant. Service very slow and quality of food mediocre / poor. Recommend staying at hotel but eat elsewhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was awful. Front desk rude and room readiness delayed until 4:30! Price is drastically inflated because of location. $22 for a VERY poor breakfast. It is too bad hotels that have the benefit of terrific locations feel that every other quality can go out the window.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel has a beautiful location on the beach of the ocean but it is a long walk to the town where the bars and restaurants are. So one person has to sacrifice and not drink to drive back. The hotel is a bit dated and can use a facelift. It was too expensive for what it was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location infront of ocean"
Not happy with the front desk staff, as when I called from the room and ask if the dogs are allowed on the property without leach and the girl told me yes they are allowed . The reason I asked because the guest beside us had big dog running around and I have couple kids who were scared to evn go out because of the big dog outside. My trip was for the […] kids and front desk staff misguide me and didn't do anything to resolve the issue, she just told me that dogs are allowed without leach. And when I was checking out I saw a big sign in front of the desk that the dogs must always be leached otherwise guest could be fined. I didn't want to ruin my coming back trip as i was already upset due to the dogs running around and my kids were scared. They couldn't enjoy they were crying And scAred .

"A few minor negatives, but mostly great"
Admittedly, we booked late (the morning of our stay), and it's the busy season so I'm willing to be forgiving. There was a half-finished can of Sprite in the mini fridge, an empty water bottle on the patio, and a used, hairy bar of soap left in the shower (eeewwww!). But we shook it off (carefully removed hairy soap!) and very much enjoyed our stay. […] The view was phenomenal, the beds were comfortable, and we had a very nice dinner in the restaurant. Service at breakfast was a litte slow - but hey, we were on vacation! Overall, I am happy we stayed there and my husband and I enjoyed it very much. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Really liked this hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious with a fantastic view of the beach. The hotel has a restaurant but we arrived on a Saturday evening and told it was all booked but if we went back at 8.30 there may be some room. On returning we were then told that the restaurant was closed.. It would have been nice to know that the restaurant would […] only be open for a limited time before we got there so we could have made other plans.

"Perfect location on the beach"
Had a great holiday. Couldn't have been any nicer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was clean and comfortable with a fast and efficient check-in, but we found this pension to be surprisingly expensive, especially for the time of year and the amenities offered in the area. The rooms are getting a little dated...their new eco TV remote didn't work at all. Front desk staff were businesslike but not overly friendly, and they […] didn't exude much personal warmth. Sadly, the entire Tofino area seems somewhat of a tourist trap with most everything in the area being a bit overpriced and offering poor value for the dollar. The adjacent Pacific Rim National Park isn't worth visiting. Expensive (high parking fees) and everything that goes on in the park is bureaucratic, micromanaged and controlled to the point of suffocation. Your better off visiting one of the Provincial Parks.

"Best western tin wis rsrt ldg"
Caution, had a very poor experience. Read the fine print regarding 'pets welcome', maybe less expensive to get a separate room for pet in town. Not only was room not ready on arrival, on the 2nd night decided to have dinner at property and were asked to leave dinning room because of lack of people....this is at 6.30 in the evening! They did later send […] meals to room and took them off the charge. However for "quote rst ldg" Have travelled a lot....awfull experience. And trying to contact management as been even more of a joke...seems to be on a extended holiday. This property as no issue with charging large dollars, you are sort of off the map and there is little recourse or choice in this area......Be cautious, simply because there where no guests. I paid big money and were not able to enjoy the facilities Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Tinwis, Best Western"
As part of a consultant group who worked with the local band 20 years ago this was my first visit to the site and was impressed with all aspects of the hotel. Friendly and accomadating staff, clean rooms, beautiful views and easy access to the clean beach. Any concerns I may have had for its success years ago were quickly dismissed.

Beautiful hotel conveniently located on McKenzie beach. Walk only a few steps, and you are watching the pounding surf :) Restaurant has good food, but I disliked the snobby male waiter there.

"Don't eat there"
09/17/14 Maria N Burlington, Canada
The meal was not only dry and cold but we kept fighting over the meal with the fruit flies. The waitress was horrible. Forgot one appetizer, never filled our wine classes, forgot us most of the time and keep making excuses for why she was giving terrible service. It was all about her and certainly. It someone that should be in the customer service business. We went the distance to celebrate our anniversary and we were so disappointed.
"best location in Tofino"
09/15/14 Liz4882014 Oakville, Canada
great resort, excellent restaurant, but it is the location on the best beach in Tofino that makes it outstanding above all others. A paradise for surfers, a great beach for walkers regardless of the tide. Small fires on the beach are allowed
"Do not eat here"
09/15/14 Barbara B Toronto, Canada
The hotel is situated on a beautiful beach. The rooms are ordinary - the price is for the view. However, the food service is less than adequate - the dining room is disorganized, the options are ambitious, service is slow at best and not satisfactory. There are many restaurant options in Tofino and nearby so that you do not have to eat here.
"Four Instead of Three"
09/11/14 caromex13 Beaufort, South Carolina
Trying to decide whether to rank this a 3 or a 4, there were several really good things about Tin Wis that convinced me to give it the higher rank: 1. The location on the beach with a great view from my room 2. The friendly and efficient staff at the front desk (and also the cookies and fruit there) 3. The restaurant--the setting, the service and the food. I had both a dinner and a breakfast there and enjoyed the innovative (especially for a Best Western) menu choices. 4. The totem pole and the history that it represented. 5. The toiletries in the bathroom. If I had decided on 3, it would have been because: 1. The rooms (or at least my room) are tired and really need renovations--furniture, décor and bathrooms 2. The sliding glass doors (or at least the one in my room) on the ground floor are not very secure.
"Right on the Ocean"
09/09/14 David J Edmonton, Canada
This is our favourite hotel to stay at while wanting to be on the ocean. The beach is sandy and well maintained. You will need your own equipment as nothing is provided. Swimming is highly recommended as the beach is one of the most sheltered in this part of the Island. Surfing is close by at Long Beach. Tofino is close by and offers at lot for the visiting tourist.
"Excellent location and nice rooms"
09/07/14 Alexander V Portland, United States
This is a wonderful Hotel at a great location. The appearance of the Hotel is excellent, The room was great ad clean and we've had a great view (like probably every room) on the bay/ocean. We are not sure why this Hotel does not have the "Plus" category.
"Terrible service "
09/05/14 Carmen L
The lady and gent at the reception must have had a bad day: between smirks (imagine asking for a king size bed) and a disgusted look (we actually wanted to have a look at the room first!) it was quite an experience. Considering the rooms aren't cheap (320 CHAd, afterwards we found a better stay at the Pacific Sands) I think common courtesy is not too much to ask for. I guess they don't want any more customers.
"Great ocean views make you overlook other shortcomings"
09/03/14 Srini-AZ Arizona
I stayed with my wife and daughter for 3 nights. The view of the ocean from the room was fantastic. Based on what I have seen of the hotel layout, their claim that every room comes with a great view must be true. The restaurant has a beautiful ocean view and some healthy options for breakfast at reasonable rates (for Tofino!). For me, the location was also good. It was about a 5 minutes drive from Tofino downtown. It also had two of our favorite food places in Tofino (Tacofino and Chocolate Tofino) within a walking distance! The Pacific Rim National Park took more than 10 minutes to get to though. The room itself was quite spacious. Though it did not appear new, it was not bad at all and the cleaning every day was done well. The patio and the chairs were excellent to watch the sunset from. I was bothered by foot steps outside on the first night, but not on the next two. The internet service was very spotty (my biggest gripe about this place). The front desk staff were very friendly. The elevator was really slow (well, considering I was on the second floor, I did not really need one). I would suggest rooms on the top floor to avoid any noise from above you and to have better privacy.
"Such a shame basics are not managed"
09/03/14 debbie40 West Midlands, UK
This could easily be a 5 star review but there is a lack of attention to detail and many basics which are just not done. When we arrived the check in was swift and friendly. I had requested a high floor and we got the top level and were allocated room 703. We were pleased with the stunning view out to the beach and the room was large and comfortable. It appeared to be recently decorated in a modern style. The only minor concern was the room had a connecting door which we dislike as they normally are more noisy. The hotel is in a beautiful location overlooking a fantastic beach. We had a good size balcony to enjoy the views. The reason the rating is not a 5 is that simple things do not seem to be taken care of. Firstly when eating in the restaurant on our first night I ordered a glass of sparkling wine. They did not have it. I ordered a glass of Sauvignon blanc. They did not have it. I had to have a cocktail instead. My husband ordered a draft beer. They did not have any draft beers despite there being several on the menu. The service in the restaurant was patchy and every morning they would leave you standing waiting to be seated even when the restaurant was half empty and there were plenty of servers. We then tried to get some pepsi from a vending machine. They did not have any. Nor diet Pepsi. Nor orange juice. This kind of thing is simple stuff and it should not happen. The iron in our room spat water all over our clothes. It had to be replaced. The biggest issue was the wifi which was constantly slow and we were unable to connect many many times. It was so frustrating. I complained about this when leaving and was told it had recently been upgraded?? They have a lovely outdoor patio area with fire pits so after dinner one evening we decided to grab some drinks and enjoy the view. No - this was not possible apparently because they do not have their drinks licence yet. Not sure why that was not sorted? It is such a shame because the hotel benefits from a perfect location but let's itself down by poor management.
"Great location on a beautiful beach"
09/02/14 Ann H Seattle, Washington, United States
The Tin Wis is located right on a great beach. All the rooms face the beach. We had a ground-floor room in the newer wing (with fireplaces) and it was really nice to be able to sit outside with views of the beach, and to be able to walk right out on the beach. The restaurant was very good, and had a pleasant atmosphere with lots of glass and great views. The room we had was very pleasant and well furnished. The only negative was the Wi-Fi - usually we could not connect, and when we did it was very slow. The chance of getting a connection seemed better in the lobby, but the reception staff did not suggest this when we complained.
