Tin-u-wis (Calm waters)

Culturally deep, expertly run space by local Tla-o-qui-aht Nation. Friendly, engaged, and knowledgeable staff. The attention to detail and the atmosphere rich with Indigenous culture, art and historical context are thoughtfully infused throughout the whole hotel.

Heaven on the West Coast

4th consecutive stay at Tin Wis, great for dog owners. Our dog howled and went crazy on the beach when we arrived. Now with Brown’s Socialhouse there, there is no reason to have to go anywhere else. We’re looking forward to next year!!

Great Value in a Great Place

Tin Wis is a wonderful property. Run by First Nations this is a special place to visit the Tofino/Ucluelet area of Vancouver Island. The staff are wonderful and we always feel that we are valued customers. Tin Wis is a destination that we return to when we visit this part of the Pacific Northwest.

Why are you hesitating?

BW Tin Wis is our favourite (and now only) place to stay in Tofino. Every room has an oceanfront view – just open your doors, and you can see and hear the waves of Makenzie beach. Friendly staff, meticulous housekeeping, great linens, fantastic breakfast. In the middle of everything, walk or bike to a little marketplace featuring Tacofino, a longer walk into tofino proper or the wilder waves of Chesterman. Family friendly.

Best location in Canada

We stay at this hotel at least once a year during “off season.” We have stayed in Best Westerns right across Canada and Tin Wis is by far the best value. Right on the beach, fire pits, dog friendly, nice restaurant, patios from which to watch the surfing action.

View to die for

“I researched all the places in Tofino, read all the comments and this one just clicked. Each room had a beach view and boy it has to be the best view of the Pacific Ocean ever. We left the door open to listen to the waves at night and what better way to go to sleep by. The rooms are great as you don’t hear your neighbour or any noise except if you have your patio door open to listen to the waves. If you ever want a peaceful and comfortable, this is your place and look no further.”
