I stayed here in July 2010 for business. It was a nice hotel, clean and tasteful, with free WiFi. I was going to stay a week, but after 1 day, I checked out and had to leave. The air conditioner was on, but it could not keep up with the 42 degree+ (celcius) temperature. The air conditioner would cycle on, but cycle off before the temperature was reduced enough to make it comfortable. I had a really bad sleep. Trail is a very hot place in the summer, and I think it's unacceptable to have weak air conditioners.
Rather than change rooms or take my chances with another night at the Best Western, I just moved to the Prestige Inn in Rossland. Less than 10 minutes away up the mountain, it was a much nicer hotel. Better view, more reasonable temperature.
I can't really fault the Best Western for being in a hot area in summer, but the lack of dependable A.C. drove me off. I'm sure in a less hot season it would be fine.
