We recently stayed at this hotel. Rooms are outstanding as they all face the ocean with a great beach in front of you. The rest of the experience is a little second rate. You walk into a nice lobby, but the service at the front desk is very slow. The restaurant is attempting to be a 5 star, but it...

We have been to Tofino a number of times but this time around we decided to try the BWTW. The location is superb and as far as I could see all the rooms have a magnificent view, with amazing sunsets from your own balcony. I have read some of the other reviews but we had no problems booking or checking...

A very good and clean hotel. The rooms facing the ocean are a big plus. The whole ambience in and outside is very nice. We would recommend this hotel anytime. We like Best Western hotels but this one has real character.

We came for two nights at the Best Western Tin Wis. All rooms overlook Mackenzie Beach and with our room on the ground floor and with a sliding glass patio door, we are mere seconds from the beach. They have a surf rental shop at the hotel which we rented from. Very convenient. The beds were very comfortable. Room well...

Lovely stay, beautiful beaches, walking, hiking, bike friendly. Would recommend for business, pleasure and families. Tofino and Uclulet are a gem. Unique mix of fishermen, first nations, hippies and 20 something surfers.

We just loved being able to leave our patio door open and hear the waves crashing in at night and have a cup of coffee in the morning, overlooking the ocean! The staff - both at the reception and in the restaurant - were extremely friendly.

We have stayed in the Tofino area dozens of times as it is our "go to" spring break destination but this was our first time trying out Best Western Tin Wis. We found the room to be tastefully decorated and clean with amazing ocean views. The staff was SO friendly, both upon check-in and check-out. The price was reasonable, especially...

Spiritual ~ Whether by the ocean, which is out your front door, or at the restaurant, in your hotel room or walking the grounds, Tin Wis is comfortable, calm & forgiving of all your thoughts and stresses. The staff are genuine, caring & want your stay to be perfect. The restaurant was fun and the servers were so sweet ......
