This is a standard Best Western in a very beautiful location steps away from one of Tofino's great, wide beaches. You are paying for the beach and that luxury is not cheap. The restaurant is pretty routine but fairly priced. My big beef is the terrible wi-fi service. Spent an hour in the "business center" trying to print out a boarding pass and gave up after it conked out five times.

Lovely beach view and seconds to get to beach for a walk. Loved the staff who were very helpful and polite.Would recommend this hotel.Fresh cookies,apples ,oranges ,coffee and tea in lobby...nice touch. Pillows needed to be changed because of odd smell.That was my only complaint.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Large and comfortabel rooms. Ask for a room on the ground floor and you then just have to open the door to your terrace, take 50 steps and you will find yourself right on the beach! Just amazing ! Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Fine fitness with new machines. 2 Nice hottubs. Had a wonderfull stay with the family. Close to the nice village of Tofino. Also tried the restaurant: good food, but the restaurant itself could be much more cosy and inviting. It feels a bit like a refectory of a cheap hotel and that's a shame. Oh yes, what is said on Tripadvisor on the wifi, is correct: it doesn't work very well, but when you stay here, it's not for the internet ...

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor room

This hotel is a short drive from Tofino and is located in a small bay in the Pacific Ocean. The Lodge is situated so that all rooms face the ocean and is only a few hundred meters from the water. The sunset from any room must be spectacular because it certainly was from ours. The room itself was not overly large for the price we paid but it is a resort and we were there during high season. It was clean, quiet and the bed was comfortable....you can't ask for more.
The staff were efficient and friendly and were quick to provide extra coffee machine packs on request.
The hotel experience was very positive and is definitely recommended.
I do advise to eat elsewhere.

Room Tip: The south side of the Lodge will have a better sunset view.

We were at first hesitant to travel very far with little kids but I heard a lot of great reviews about TOFINO. Our friend invited us to join them in this travel adventure and we are so glad we said yes to them! The hotel definitely did not disappoint us! It was a place worth the long drive! Many of the comments in the Trip Advisor were really helpful. And they definitely spoke from experience. It was not only because of location but the people behind it which makes it an excellent hotel! The warmth environment is felt as soon as you enter the lobby...accommodation were done to suit the needs of their clientele. The amenities were perfect for everyone, whether young and young at heart...(no swimming pool though but who cares we have the whole beach to do our activities)! We did kite flying, kayaking of course some showed off their surfing skills. Our kids enjoyed volleyball and sand castle making as the sea shore stretches further than you think especially when it's low tide. The playground was a great addition too! We stayed on the ground level which worked for us and a great choice as we were four families with small kids. It was a perfect room location as we open our back door to a big and spacious greenery and wonderful scenery! The room we stayed in was nice and clean. Though you might want to ask for a kitchenette (especially if you have kids). Just a friendly reminder, request for a kitchenette is needed at the time of your reservation as not all can be accommodated. All in all whatever room you have is just perfect for a great vacation in a picturesque place!

The hotel was near the town itself...if you want to go whale watching or do other similar activities there are many tour companies to offer them. So for me, Tofino and Best Western Tin Wis Resort especially when you have kids goes hand in hand....a wonderful place to be! A place definitely worth the travel!

Room Tip: As others have suggested I think the 600 to 700 rooms would be a great area to stay...If you have ki...

The hotel has a lot of wonderful native Indian touches like masks on walls, totem poles and etchings. The beach is right there! And our room on the upper floor had the best views. Definitely go for breakfast as there's lots to choose from, it;s huge and very good.

This hotel was very nice - location, people, amenities and experience were all excellent. The area is rife with all kinds of possible activities. Even though a little expensive we would heartedly recommend this hotel to everyone.
