Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2011

This is a nice hotel that has been renovated completely and tastefully. Rooms are smallish but very nicely done, flat screen TVs, comfy bedding and pleasing decor. We found it very clean and enjoyable. Excellent Wi-Fi.

The room was clean, the service was good. The location, however, seemed quite noisy all night long. The pool is located a couple of kms down the road at a different hotel. Still it looks like the best place to stay in Trail.

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.

Traveled to Trail for a wedding, Hotel was nicely updated, free wifi. quiet for the most part. We asked for recomondations for breakfast in the morning and was told there was not much open except there attatched resturant. Food was very good at the resturant but over priced and service in the resturant was painfully slow, even thou there was only my wife and I and another couple in the resturant. My wife asked for a half order of Oatmeal and received that, but we were charged the full price on the bill. Coffee was see thru
Recomend the Greenwood resturant for breakfast. Older style motel and resturant but food was awesome. The resturant was packed.

Overall the staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpfull. Will stay there again when in Trail
