“A perfect get away”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

We needed a break form the city and found Tin Wis Resort Lodge, near Tofino, the perfect choice. A sense of calmness was immediate upon arrival. The warm, friendlily staff made us feel at home the entire stay. Our room had a great view and it appeared that all the rooms faced the beach. The entire site is tastefully decorated with First Nation's art including an amazing totem pole right outside the restaurant. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food in the Calm Waters (Tin Wis means calm waters in the Tla-O-Qui-Aht language) restaurant was delicious with a good selection to please anyone's palette. The crab cakes are to die for. Whether strolling on Mackenzie beach, relaxing in the hot tub with a view or sipping a drink and watching a seasonal storm, you will be very glad you came here.

We spent the weekend of January 24-26 at this resort and had sunny weather with temperatures during the day of about 12C. It was even better than the stormy times! Four couples and four dogs had a great weekend. There are fire pits on the beach for guests to use and we took full advantage. The staff in all areas of the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Probably the best part of this hotel is the restaurant. The menu offers something for every taste and the food is world class. The wait staff is friendly and fun, and was very accommodating to our group. It was my birthday and while my husband had brought a cake, he forgot candles. The kitchen staff went out of their way on a busy evening to find some. The proximity to the beach and the layout of the grounds make this an ideal pet friendly hotel. We'll definitely be back again.

Room Tip: If you have a dog with you, try and get a ground floor room. They open onto a tile patio and grass...

My husband booked us for the weekend under their "deals & pkgs" tab which was a good deal by itself but we were upgraded to a superior room when we arrived.

Gas fireplace, comfy bed and so close to the beach. Lots of coffee supplies, toaster, microwave, even two burner stove. Ice and pop dispenser just around the corner by elevator.

Dvd machine provided at front desk. A light bulb was dead but another was brought within 5-10 minutes by maintenance person.

Housekeeping staff very friendly and accommodating. Drop what they're doing to get extra coffee for us.

This is our 2nd stay and we'll definitely return. Quiet spot on the beach but close to town and other beaches, stores, movie rentals, etc. Great escape. We stayed an extra night.

We stayed here twice last year in November and March , Both times the staff was helpful and friendly Food at the restaurant was excellent and the beach was great for running the dog and strolling in the morning and the evening. We even went in for a swim on one nice sunny day . We traveled out in March for birthday Surf lessons for my son and really enjoyed our stay .

We got off to a bad start as the Resort messed up our reservations and we did not get the reserved room although after we had unpacked there was an offer to correct their mistake with an upgrade for a portion of our 3 night stay. Get all particulars in your reservation confirmation.
We stayed here in mid-Jan., 2014, in a standard, double-bedded room on the 3rd. floor of the north building at a cost of $162 per night plus taxes. The rooms are clean, sufficiently spacious and, in our building, a full on ocean view. It is in a sheltered bay so there were no big, dramatic waves. All rooms face the water and would have at least a partial ocean view.
The highlights are the setting of this property and the staff in the dining room (Joe, Donna and Stan). Breakfasts are excellent - try the oatie cakes and you won't need lunch. We had 1 dinner then sought other meals outside.
Accommodation costs for an acceptable standard in this part of the word are high and this property represents good value.
A WONDERFUL PART OF THE WORLD!!

Room Tip: Always an upper floor. North building has full on views. Every room will have a view

We stayed here in June for a night, as I was given a gift certificate for a one night stay. We had never stayed here before and really enjoyed our stay! Room was nice and clean, although more like a standard hotel room, when we usually book more of resort type rooms with jetted tubs, ect. The property is beautiful we had a great view from our room. The highlight was our dinner in the restaurant, which was fantastic and reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in resorts in the area. We would stay here again for sure
