Hotel's Favourite
The hotel is modern and clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The location overlooks a lake. The hotel is also mere minutes from all attractions and located to make access to the south shore and other areas very easy.

Room was fine and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was included and extremely good. Wouldn’t recommend as I didn’t have hot water for showers either in morning or at night. Many other guests didn’t either that I was with and the staff used the weather and amount of guests in hotel as an excuse. When I checked out I told the staff and she asked if I had told them but I didn’t because the rest of the people I was with said nothing was done. Housekeeper woke me the first morning playing loud music in the hall and vacuuming at 8am. Second morning she knocked on my door at 810 am. The hotel is fine otherwise but there was no discount given for no hot water which is a big part of the stay. I wanted to have a bath after shopping all day but didn’t want to have a cold bath.

Response from Cullen Johnson, Guest Services / Front Office at Best Western Plus Chocolate Lake Hotel
Responded Jan 15, 2024
Dear Krista, thank you for taking the time to share your honest feedback from your recent stay with us. Feedback from our guests is always appreciated as it helps us improve. I sincerely apologize that we were unable to address the lack of hot water in your guest room during your stay with us. We were made aware of some concerns regarding the lack of hot water in a few guest rooms and our maintenance team began to investigate. We are delighted that we quickly returned hot water service to those guests we spoke with and I apologize that we were not aware of the problem affecting your guest room as well. We have identified the issue causing the lack of hot water and it was corrected by a third-party contractor to ensure it does not happen again. We know that many guests and the cold weather can cause a strain on our water heating systems, but we are pleased that we quickly identified another cause for concern and had it rectified to best serve our guests. I apologize that we did not inform you of this resolution. I sincerely hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Chocolate Lake again in the future, for a stay which exceeds expectations, with exceptional service and hot, hot water.

Excellent hotel with lots of amenities. Nice bar, games room, pool, small typical gym. Stayed here as part of a hockey tournament and was impressed with the staff and cleanliness. If you’re browsing looking for a hotel to stay at, you found it!

Hotel was great. Room was clean, free breakfast was great. Staff were friendly. Would have loved to see the pool, however it was closed for maintenance the entire duration of our stay. Arcade was fun to pass some time in the evening.

The only thing I will complain about, is that there was absolutely no parking between 21:00 and 23:30. There was apparently a Christmas Party in the hotel, and those who were actually staying in the hotel were not made aware. So, as a result, many of the guests were forced to park on the grass and in the driving lanes. We return to the hotel at around 21:00-21:15 after an event, just to settle in before continuing the rest of our evening - until we seen the parking. We then spent the next 20 minutes trying to find a parking spot until a kind gentlemen advised us of the party and suggested we leave and come back in another hour or so, as that is what the staff told them when they went in to complain. We leave for an additional two hours to be safe. After our evening was finished, we tried to call the hotel twice to ask if the parking had freed up at all; no one answered our phone calls. We decided to go and check out the parking ourselves, only to see that it remained just as full as before, if not more. Eventually, after driving around for about 5-7 minutes, we seen someone leave a parking spot so we quickly drove to get in. Our biggest complaint would only be the parking. But, besides that, everything else went great. The value, the food, the flexibility of checking in and out, and the rooms were beautiful.

We were there for two nights for a sports tournament and both parents and kids were very happy and would be delighted to stay here for future tournaments. Rooms were clean and ready upon arrival. The breakfast selection was exceptional!
