Over Best Western Tin Wis Resort
Het resort staat op het land van de oorspronkelijke bewoners, de Tla-O-Qui-Aht. Veel in het hotel verwijst naar hen, met veel respect voor hun cultuur. Het resort is even buiten Tofino gelegen, uitvalsbasis voor het verkennen van het Pacific Rim National Park en de Clayoquot Sound. Dit is het ontmoetingspunt van dicht regenwoud vol beren met de oceaan vol walvissen. Alle kamers hebben uitzicht op zee. Verder beschikt het hotel onder meer over de 'Calm Waters' dining room, waar uiteraard zalm en andere verse vis op de menukaart staan. Ook fijn: vanuit het resort loopt u zo het strand op. En mocht u een knus avondje binnen willen doorbrengen; bij de receptie worden films verhuurd.

Tofino is de perfecte uitvalsbasis voor vele excursies om wild te 'spotten'.
Gelegen aan McKenzie Beach op Vancouver Island.
- Hot tub
Het vissersdorpje Tofino ligt aan de westkust van Vancouver Island, in het uiterste puntje van het schiereiland Esowista nabij de Clayoquot Sound. Een klein gebied beschermd door UNESCO. Vanuit Tofino zijn walvis- en berenexcursies populaire bezigheden. Ook een bezoek aan het Pacific Rim National Park is zeker de moeite waard. Maar ook voor surfen op de hoge golven van de Pacific en genieten op het strand is Tofino een populaire bestemming.
Right on the Pacific Rim this hotel has a great setting. Nice room with a balcony looking onto the ocean. Friendly staff and a good restaurant. Only eat there once but it was a tasty meal and good value in an expensive area. The jewel for this hotel is definitely it's position.
"Solid, Relaxed Accommodation"
Owned by the local First Nation, "Tin Wis" means something to the effect of "calm place to land." It is located on a crescent beach, protected by islets at the outside of the bay. McKenzie Bay boasts tide pools for kids (and adults) to explore. On a recent visit, we found the carcass of a small sunfish, showing that warmer waters are indeed moving north. The smallish waves are good for learning to surf (no doubt organized by the hotel's surf shop, but we didn't try). The beach is shared by a number of other hotels. Tin Wis is a short drive to Tofino in the north, and to Pacific Rim National Park in the south. Our room was a standard double queen, and was clean. But its best feature was being steps from the beach. Of course, this puts it in the tsunami zone, but there hasn't been a tsunami in living memory. The restaurant was a bit hit and miss, offering us decent mussels for dinner, but disappointingly leathery omelets for breakfast. Tin Wis can be a bit pricey in the summer high season, but the more reasonable prices of the winter storm watching season can be accompanied by truly cataclysmic storms. All in all, Tin Wis is a decent place to stay, and I would definitely go back.
Absolutely stunning. Highly recommend if your looking to treat yourself with a beautiful view, beautiful beach, beautiful water and sand. Town of tofino was a brief walk away. We went for a friend's wedding and there was minor bumps because of weather and less guests then expected. As a guest you couldn't tell that there was any hiccups. We ended up using the resteraunt sunroof area as the reception and they let us use the propane fire pits and brought us beautiful cozy blankets.
"Pricey but nice"
This hotel is what you would expect in a Best Western Property. It is clean, with good amenities included. Most Best Western properties offer some kind of breakfast included. At this hotel, you can either pay more for the breakfast included room price or get 20% off by showing your room key. That is the only issue I had was the lack of even a continental breakfast included.
"If you've not stayed here your bucket list is incomplete...."
I first became acquainted with Long Beach and Tofino in the late 1970â€™s. Accommodation at the time consisted of a pup tent and a sleeping bag, with food and beverage service provided through a Coleman stove and cooler. Rustic as it may have been, we found ourselves travelling to Tofino every long weekend from May through September. Simple pleasuresâ€¦ This many years later, Long Beach and Tofino (and Ucluelet in fairness) remain every bit as compelling. The only difference being the personal choice to seek something slightly more comfortable than a pup tent. And a menu that doesnâ€™t include Pop Tarts as a main course. Keeping an eye on social network shopping coupons, my wife noticed a travel opportunity offered by the Best Western Tin Wis Resort in Tofino. Purchasing three nights of accommodation we looked forward to a mini-break in the spectacular surroundings of Long Beach. Sadly, circumstances conspired that made it impossible to make the journey for nearly three years. In this situation the value of the travel vouchers reverts to the cash value paid at the time of purchase. The Fates having decided that it was now time to visit Long Beach, my wife called the Best Western Tin Wis to see what accommodation was available, and to see how the travel vouchers would be applied. The first call in the late evening was met with appropriate politeness and interest, but the reservation clerk admitted that the circumstances were outside their experience, and rather than provide us with information that may be incorrect, suggested we call the manager the next day. A more than reasonable approach to the conversation. The resort manager, John, quickly understood what we were trying to do, and made extraordinary effort to meet our needs. With his help we booked for three nights in the first week of October. After a journey under perfect early autumn conditions we arrived at Tin Wis. The resort representatives working at the check-in desk offered a warm welcome, fresh cookies, fruit, and quickly provided key-cards for our room. We had been booked into room 710- a King Suite. While there was every reason to think the room would be comfortable, we were both surprised and delighted upon entering the room. Spacious, light, and comfortable (terms which were never considered in relation to a pup tent) the suite was perfect in every respect. A large living room with a comfortable couch, a separate bedroom with a king size bed and soaker tub by the window, and a modern and stylish bathroom. A deck running the full-width of the living and bedrooms offered unobstructed views over Mackenzie Beach. Perfect. Among the many resort amenities is the Beachfront Bistro. Having spent the day travelling the decision was made to have dinner at the resort, rather than drive into Tofino. This proved a very good idea. Offering 180 degree views of the resort and beach, the restaurant is a splendid place to enjoy a drink while watching the sun set over the Pacific. The food was fresh and served in a timely manner- the seafood linguine being particularly noteworthy. We enjoyed two evenings at the Beachfront Bistro, which in of itself suggests that this is worth a visit. Thanks to Chloe and Chance for your kind help and suggestions- you made our time at the Bistro memorable for all the right reasons. Tin Wis is everything promised- comfortable accommodation set in spectacular surroundings, all with the benefits of friendly and engaged staff. The only reservations anyone should have about staying here are those confirming your roomâ€¦ And again, my thanks to John for your kind help- this was a holiday that was needed and completely enjoyed. Cheers, Stuart and Ronnie
