Went here for our first stay in tofino and would love to go back. Our room was ground floor beachfront that allowed us to surf in the beautiful Mackenzie beach area. Hotel was under renovations, but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fairly mediocre but having a beach view certainly helped.

Nice hotel, located right on the beach - incredible spot! Renovations underway meant the lobby was closed, but the rooms were great! Restaurant has a gorgeous view, and the service people were really good.

We had been to Tofino several times, but had never stayed or even looked Tin Wis. This was a sort of last minute trip and I was excited that they had a room available at sucha reasonable price. When we arrived the location and views were above and beyond anything that I had anticipated. The room was simple but perfect...

The maid had left us creamers in the fridge, tea towel and washcloth. The room had a nice sittingarea and a working fireplace. The...

Went for a quick getaway and stayed here because we couldn't get into Long Beach Lodge or Cox Bay Beach Resort. We've had great experiences with Best Western properties in the past, so expected a similar experience this time. The front desk staff were very kind and the location is beautiful, but the rooms are VERY poorly insulated - we...

This was our second stay at this hotel, and we had forgotten how incredible the views are from the rooms. The rooms have been upgraded and have very comfortable beds, are very spacious, and even include Keurig coffee makers. We have stayed at many BW Plus hotels, and this one is definitely comparable, even though it does not have that...
