Best Western Tin Wis Resort
Ranked #6 of 16 Hotels in Tofino
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I've stayed in several Best Western hotels on my travels and this one offered reasonable rates. We had a king room with ocean view and rates excluded breakfast.

The living area of our room was large, with king bed, TV, sofa, chair and desk. The bathroom was quite small, but functional. We also had a small kitchenette. The room was on a block that was at an angle to the beach, so the ocean view was a matter of being on the balcony.Sitting inside provided no real view because of the room layout.

The staff at the hotel were all helpful.

There was a restaurant which also housed a small bar (open only when the restaurant was open). The room itself was nothing much to speak of, but functional. The food was good and reasonably priced (for the location) though service was somewhat slow and seemed, at times, a little disorganised. They need a maitre-d.

We enjoyed the stay and wish we had had longer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the beach-facing block.

My wife and I stayed there for 2 nights beginning of June for weekend gateway, and we loved the place.
While we were choosing a hotel, we were between this hotel and another one which is more luxury but not guarantee for a ocean view room. But you know, we didn't want to have a mountain view room in a ocean resort, so chose this one, which all rooms face the ocean.
We arrived there at 3:30, 30 minutes before their regular check in time, but our room wasn't ready, well not a big deal, we went to the town walking around and went back little after 4pm, and they checked us in. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful.

We didn't have a high hope about the room, but it was actually very clean and nice. From our room (1st floor), there is a small patio area which we had our take-out dinner both evenings because we love the sunset view from there and beautiful lawn area accessible through it.

All the staff including the restaurant was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time there, and can't wait going back there. Only next time, I wouldn't choose a breakfast package. With the package we can choose from only 3 menu items. Even without the package, we can get 20% discount as hotel guests for breakfast and much better options for menu items.

Room Tip: There are three buildings, the building that has rooms with kitchenette looks newer and nicer, but I...

From the time we arrived on our 3 day stay we felt very happy with our choice. The reception staff was very helpful and even the security guard/maintance man was fab fixing our jammed patio door. Fab hot tub and good facilities for doing laundry with wash n driers We had a fab view of the private beach and enjoyed strolling along it early morning and evening observing what wildlife the sea had washed up from starfish to annemia breakfast was good but the staff in the restaurant was slow and not as helpful. Let down with only 3items on main menu at evening meal but meal was nice.
Highly recommend the whale watching with JAMIES was a fab trip and we saw hump back and grey whales seals and sea lions bald eagles was a fab experience
Just wished we could've stayed in Torino few more days but alas our touring trip continued woulD highly recommend this hotel

The blend of first nation and best western was impressive. Views outstanding. Personnel were friendly, especially Debra at the desk. The restaurant served limited but flavorful breakfast and dinner. Impressive views from the room as well as the entire complex.

Tin Wis hotel was in a lovely location with its own beach location which hotel guests really made use of at all times of day. Rooms all face the ocean and the hot tub is a nice facility at the end of the day. Front desk service is helpful but the bistro staff seemed slow in getting meals to you which is disappointing in such a pleasant location .

Room Tip: Look for alternative places to eat. They can be found.
