The hotel is about 200 metres from the shore and the view is spectacular. Even in bad weather this is an enjoyable spot. Staff were excellent. Food very good. Highly recommended spot for a nice holiday.

I surprised my wife with a Valentine's weekend getaway. We stayed for one night here. I would agree with many of the positive reviews. Great view from our room! As mentioned elsewhere, every room has an ocean view, and my wife and I enjoyed watching the breakers come in on a particularly windy and stormy day. The beach was about...

The view is spectacular and the rooms all face the water. Walking on the beach is one of the most soothing things you can do here. The staff are wonderful and will go the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need to have a great stay.

The hotel has been recently updated and that is still in progress for the lobby. It's all good. This hotel has lots to offer though it is not swank like so many others try to be - and THEY don't have the views or the magnificent beach! Great staff, nice restaurant and just plain comfy.

We stayed one night here and it was really excellent. The view of the ocean, great expanse of beach that everyone was out walking, surfing, just enjoying it all! The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. It was a quiet, restful nights sleep in spite of it being fully booked for the family day weekend. The staff was great....

We stayed at the Tin Wis in Tofino back in May 2015, the location is fantastic and we had a room overlooking the ocean. The resort is old even tho they have done some renos. I didn't find the rooms to be too overly clean, and the beds and pillows were not the usual standard for a best western, but...

We stayed in the off-season (October) on a surf trip so got a great deal on a bottom floor room with patio right onto the grass in front of the beach. Amazing value for the type of room we had. Service was great and location is amazing.

Clean comfortable room, easy check in. Very nice breakfast menu & good servers. The food was wonderful! Late dining & again the food was great & the servers were wonderful. Housekeeping didn't miss a beat. We would go back in a moment. The views from our balcony were amazing. Would highly recommend Best Western Tin Wis.

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.
