Hotel's Favourite

Everything about this hotel was enjoyable. The hotel was quiet, the room was clean, the pool warm, the breakfast better than most, the staff friendly. There is ample parking too and a free cookie at check in. What else is there to say? We would gladly stay again.

Check in and check out worked well. The room was clean and well stocked. What we really appreciated was the hotel and staff were implementing covid-19 regulations. There were sanitizers at many locations and face covers were required. Breakfast was great as we were able to order the regular breakfast that was served by the pleasant staff.

A fairly new hotel well off the main highway but easily accessed making it a quiet stay. I had a room with a separate sleeping area and kitchenette making it pleasant for day use and having visitors at a reasonable, competitive rate. Although the pool was closed due to COVID-19 it appeared to be a very nice facility. I had no cleanliness concerns.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel in Chemanus and the staff make a point of knowing you in a professional way. The rooms are superb, clean and very comfortable with all the amenities I need. The pool is clean and tidy with a very relaxing hot tub.
The complimentary breakfast offered has a very good selection and plenty offered with friendly staff cleaning and keeping the coffee pots topped up.

Took a last minute overnight trip to Chemainus to meet friends visiting from out of town. We picked the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn as it was very convenient to where we were meeting up with our friends. From the moment we arrived at the hotel to the time we left, the hotel exceeded our expectations.
The front desk staff were very friendly and efficient. The freshly-baked cookies at check-in (and late night) were a great addition.
Parking was free.
We chose a balcony room which is a corner room. It was very big and bright and had a separate living room with a sofa-bed.
The room was extremely clean and all furnishings seemed like they were brand new. It had a kitchenette (which included a bar fridge, stove top, microwave, toaster, Keurig coffee machine, dishwasher and all the dishes/cutlery etc).
The bedroom is separate and had a very comfortable king bed.
The bathroom was large, clean and the shower had good hot water and pressure.
We used the hot tub located in the pool area which was great as well.
There are laundry facilities on site, which we didn't use.
The booking included a hot breakfast (buffet style). Great choices at breakfast and the foot was all hot and tasty.
Very impressed with this hotel and will not only find a way to come back but will recommend to friends.

Arrived late in the day with out of town guests, and rooms were ready with beds turned down and a chocolate on each pillow! No details left out, including excellent hot breakfast! Very friendly, accommodating staff at every turn! No hesitation in highly recommending this hotel! Charming little town with many old "re-purposed buildings". The old bank, now a cosy little lunch counter, is a must do and the murals throughout the town are well worth viewing. A lot of artistic talent her, including the Saturday flea market in midtown.

Caught after having to refuse our booked lodging on Spring Break, we searched for suitable lodging for 3 nights. Our timing paid off as we arrived at this Best Western not 10 minutes after a cancellation had been done.

Amanda at the front desk helped us get settled into a lovely suite that had a 2-element stovetop, a microwave and dishwasher in the room. You could draw the doors closed to the bedroom to provide some quiet if needed. The room was clean and comfortable.

Service from all the staff over our 3 nights was excellent, the breakfast included in the room cost was fresh and varied a bit day-to-day, and above all else the cost for the room in this day was quite reasonable.

An excellent choice if you're in Chemainus and looking for a comfortable, welcoming place to stay.

We have stayed at this hotel each time we have attended the Chemainus Theatre nearby. We have always experienced friendly, welcoming staff who genuinely want to make sure our stay is pleasant. We love the buffet breakfast in the morning, the swimming pool, the hot tub. The rooms are lovely and clean. We marvel at the work this must involve with guests like us staying only one night.

Darlene D asked a question Aug 2019
Why is the check in so late?
Answer from Lindsay L
4pm is a standard check in time for most hotels. And to ensure your room is cleaned to our satisfaction and high standard of cleanliness. You can request and earlier check with the front desk and we try our best to accommodate you. Thank you for enquiring.
