“fantastic time there”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We had a room with a fantastic view on the beach and the sea it was very relaxing and we like to hear the movement of the waves. the bed was very comfortable . we slept very well. the breakfast at the restaurant at the hotel was very good and there were a lot to choose from. the service was excellent. we enjoyed ourself very much. It was the perfect place to come to recharge "the battery" after a few months of being very busy!!!

My husband and I recently stayed at Tin Wis, We found the room to be spacious and comfortable, with a reasonable sized deck which overlooked the grounds and the beach in front of the resort.

The beach was wonderful for walking, photography, and drawing/painting.

We also ate in the restaurant, for dinner and breakfast. The food was excellent and the choice was reasonable.

The staff were all friendly and helpful.

Our only complaint was that we were limited to one night's stay . . . our poor planning, not the fault of the hotel. We hope to return.

Room Tip: There aren't any bad rooms at Tin Wis. They all have unobstructed views of the water. Our room...

Dear Netonia
We did communicate with you recently via an other venue and hope you are satisfied with our explanations and response.
Again your experience is not at all like us as you can see from previous tripadvisor comments.
All of our rooms are ocean - beach front and we sure hope you will return.
Again we are very sorry for your experience!!

The tin wis resort is a classic. Great ocean views and great beach steps away. The sunsets from here are spectacular. The rooms are a bit dated. It was nice having a small fridge, microwave, tea kettle and coffee machine. Little play area for kids was great for my son. The hot tub room was a little weird. Not too sure why they wouldn't put them outside on a deck for people to enjoy the view.

We had a great experience staying at the Tin Wis Best Western! There's access to a beach, big room with a mini fridge and microwave so you can store and make some food. No continental breakfast though, which would have been nice, but it is pet friendly!

This was our first trip to Tofino and we loved it. The Best Western Tin Wis was very clean, service was great and it is a good location, only a few minute drive into town.
They have fire pits and BBQ's on the beach, we bought some fire wood and kindling at a near by gas station and enjoyed a fire on the beach.

Room Tip: South side of the complex is closest to the hot tubs.

We booked the top room as we were celebrating a birthday. Room was great, it was big, comfortable, clean and had great views. Pitfalls were the shades in the bedroom were barley working and not very good ( hard to open and close) and toilet paper why only half a roll in the room? why not stock a few rolls, why make us call down and ask for some? I saw this was a problem in another review as well.

I would not recommend the restaurant though as it was our worst meal ever.

But the hotel was very nice. We will be back to stay with our kids there as it is a great beach for kids, calm and long beach. This is not a surfers beach, the waves are no bigger than a foot or two here.
