Recent guest reviews

This was such a nice surprise - we had no other options the weekend we stayed in Tofino - and we were so happy! The room was clean, new, very well appointed and the view was stunning. We had great weather which was nice. Fires on the beach at night - so many things to see. You can also rent wetsuits and gear right from the hotel which was an added bonus. We played in the ocean for a couple of hours (you need a wetsuit!) and enjoyed it thoroughly. We also used the hot tubs and that was nice on a cool evening as well. Would definitely stay there again.

I absolutely loved my stay here. The ocean view from the room was so beautiful and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I love the free coffee and cookies by the front door!! ☺️ I have to say though that I thoroughly enjoyed the food here the most. I tried everything from the steak to the salads during my stay but I loved the seafood pasta the most. It came with 4 types of seafood - shrimp, scallops, salmon and I think cod or halibut and it was just amazing!! Cooked to perfection and tasted great! Great chefs in that kitchen! I will recommend to all friends and family that may come this way!

For wonderful staff, rooms, restaurant, cleanliness, atmosphere & fun..the Tin Wis is a must if traveling to Tofino! Pet friendly, laid back & you feel like your at home, not in a hotel! I’d give it a 10 star rating if I could!

We gasped when we entered the room and saw the view from our patio doors. We were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the waves both nights. It was very quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant was convenient and the food was good.

We recently stayed one night at the Tin Wis Best Western in Tofino and wish we had stayed longer. All the rooms overlook the ocean, and the beach is wonderful. And there's a good restaurant on the property too. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room. It was quite large, with a king bed (very comfortable and super clean), couch, tv, desk with chair, small station with microwave, fridge & coffee pot, and a nice bathroom with large countertop (which we love), and a good-sized balcony with small table & chairs. We can't say enough good things about the staff, especially Courteney at the front desk, who was very helpful when I enquired about some other rooms. We had dinner at the Beachfront Bistro, and it was delicious. Our waitress was excellent too. There are hot tubs, a small gym, surfboard rentals and a laundry facility. If we had any suggestions for improvement at all, it would be nice to have hot tubs outside. We definitely are making plans to go back, and are delighted with the variety of rooms there are to choose from and the rates, especially at this time of year.

Great hotel to stay in while wanting to stay in Tofino to surf or storm watch. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and all of the rooms have a view of the water! Reasonably priced and we enjoyed the hot tub before retiring for the night! Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Love staying here. Fire places were decommissioned, I hope they are not taking them away, it’s part of the reason we stay especially in the winter as it’s much more cozy. Great views from all the rooms and the bistro has good food and friendly staff.

The location is stunning, and the hotel is very good value for the location. There are ocean views from everywhere, and what you see is never the same. The staff were very helpful and accomodating for non-standard requests. You can happily spend all our time just staying right there, walking the beaches, or you can easily drive to other walks and short hikes. And it's only a five-minute drive to Tofino for a change of scene.

Stayed many times. The rooms and staff are very pet friendly. provide a towel and blanket, dish and treats for the dog and the patio doors open right onto the garden. Good to have both a coffee maker and kettle in the room too.

We took a quick getaway and grabbed one of the only rooms left in town on Expedia. We weren't expecting much not knowing anything about Tofino or the location on the hotel. We were very surprised to have a beach view. The room was large, very clean and comfortable. I highly recommend the Best Western Tin Wis
