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

I was weary about booking here as there wasn't much written in the description on this site but it was the last hotel as we booked late before a long weekend and we were pleasantly surprised!

"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. My background in […] the hotel business for over twenty years made me aware of issues that occur in operating hotels and the management of this hotel at this hotel appear to overcome them and did a wonderful job.

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.

"Super Lage, aber etwas überteuert!"

"Excellent location and view"

We spent 3 days at the Best Western Tin Wis Resort Lodge in Tofino. We had a ground level floor opening out onto a patio and then to the lawn leading down to the beautiful beach with amazing sunsets. Great place to stay with short drive into the town centre. Clean and comfortable with a fridge. Great service. Would stay again.

We had the best time at Tin Wis. We were in B.C. for two weeks and this was the spot. Could have spent the whole two weeks here just walking the beaches and exploring. We are considering going back in November. The meals were wonderful the staff were all pleasant and helpful.

3 hour drive from the ferry but SO worth it. Our room, on the ground floor overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We slept with the door open and listened to the waves. We didn't have the best weather but I imagine this place is spectacular whatever, it certainly didn't spoil our stay. Can't comment on restaurant as we didn't use it, we discovered Tofino, a short drive away, lovely and quaint. Our room was extremely spacious with two large beds and bathroom. Microwave, fridge and drinks making facilities. The hot tub was an added extra which we sat in while looking at the sea. You are surrounded by good beaches here, it's a beautiful part of the island. Our second Best Western of the holiday, loved it.
"Tin Wis Resort - Beautiful setting, a few problems"
09/25/14 tandrasko Houston, Texas
Perhaps it was that the season was winding down by mid September, but the lack of staff in the restaurant caused us to have to go off-site for dinner. And the free wi-fi went down the one night we were there. However, the view from the room and the grounds were beautiful. But be aware there is no AC if you are there on a hot day, and no fan in the room.

This was our fourth visit to Tin Wis. As usual we were greeted by friendly staff who quickly checked us in and got us settled in our rooms. That evening we enjoyed an excellent dinner, good food, good service. Breakfast was excellent, our server, Sylvia, the first morning and Curtis the second day were both great. The good humour and good serving really got our days off to a great start. Altogether we really enjoyed our stay and will be back
"Best Western Tin Wis, Tofino, B.C."

Located beach side on the Pacific Ocean in Tofino, B.C. this hotel is a romantic and beautiful place to stay. The Beach Side Grill offers amazing food for all meals and the helpful staff are second to none. You will enjoy this out-of-the-way retreat tremendously. And the drive there is half the fun.

We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to stay on the ocean! The view was fantastic, access to the beach--right out our door, beautiful sunsets from our room, the beach and the restaurant. We loved having such a large room with fireplace and balcony. Everything was PERFECT! Close to Chesterman Beach where the surf is higher than anywhere else along the coast and colorful starfish everywhere! The staff was helpful in so many ways, especially recommending Tony's as the best pizza place--right in town near the water. We could hear the ocean all night with the fireplace glowing--fantastic experience!
"Tin Wis - Great Place to Stay"
09/23/14 Rosa D Victoria, Canada
We stayed at the Tin Wis for our daughter's wedding in August and it was fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful, and our rooms were always kept clean - they even take great care to clean the walkways and grass areas. The restaurant was also amazing. Whether when we had a quiet dinner for two, 15 at the rehearsal dinner, or 80 at the wedding the same care and great taste was experienced with all of the food. Chef George Gates showed that he cared about his restaurant, the service, and especially the food! We have highly recommended it to many people. Another person to thank is Donnale Edgar who truly went the extra mile to make sure that our daughter's wedding was the special event that she had dreamed of. Donnale's organization and set-up of the reception area made it possible for our daughter to focus on other things - she knew Donnale had it under control! We are already looking forward to our next trip to Tofino and we will definitely stay at the Tin Wis again!!
"Good value for your dollar!"
09/22/14 Liz O Kelowna
Only posting this now as somehow landed in my drafts... Came to Tin Wis after leaving another hotel. Staff extremely accommodating as we arrived at 10:30am - check in not normally till 4pm. As there was a room available, no issue checking in at this time. Huge bonus. 2 adults, 2 kids (13 and 10). Basic 2 queen hotel room, very clean and spacious - enough 'walk around' room to not be tripping over 4 suitcases. Beds/bedding very suitable. Set up like a motel, doors on the parking lot side, patio doors onto green space and view of the beach. ALL the suites look to the water. Large counter-top/vanity just outside the bathroom for coffee/snack station with bar fridge underneath. Stocked with to-go cups, sugar, tea, stir sticks, etc.. Staff in restaurant very happy to provide the odd knife, bowl, cup etc. if needed. 2 patio chairs and table for every patio. Staff very accommodating to provide extra if needed - prompt as well - we had the extra chair within 10 minutes as did our neighbours. Couple of picnic tables available to use. Restaurant good. Clean, nice menu choice, good views. The are currently constructing a patio/outside eating area which will be lovely. Front desk has cookies available in the afternoons and has a Keurig machine in the morning for you to grab a java if you would rather not brew in your room. Both nice touches. Felt it was good value for the dollar. MacKenzie beach is lovely.
