“Great Hotel & Location”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

The Staff at the front desk were very friendly & helpful. The rooms were very clean and seem to be updated as well.My daughter & I were visiting my neice who had just had a baby. This location is close to the hospital, shopping,,restaurants and fast food places. It was quiet in the evening had a great sleep, beds were comfortable what more could you ask for. They have a huge water slide in their pool, didn't use but had a look.

We're the Travelin' Travel Agents from Consumers Travel World. This was a real surprise for a Best Western. We generally find BW a good chain to use on a road trip. Consistently nice facilities and amenities. The rooms here are fine. The location is a bit unusual---on a street in an industrial area. Anyhoo----we've gotten spoiled by SOME kind of free breakfast in almost any motel. This one had none, but directed you to the restaurant next door---(for a fee of course). But the final coup was when I if there was coffee in the lobby. I was directed to a PAY COFFEE MACHINE. I asked if that was a joke, and was told it was necessary because people would just walk in off the street (what street?) and just pour themselves a cup. I indicated that I was staying at the motel, and was told I could go upstairs and make my free in-room coffee. HENCE the poor rating!

We were more than pleased with the accommodations. We were travelling with a small dog and were happy to find we did not get stuck in a smoking room. Our room was clean, comfortable and roomy. The staff and management were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant has good food and service.
I would recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again.

We were recommended to stay in Squamish by people we met along our road trip and when we found this hotel, we were more than delighted. The staff on reception etc were very helpful and friendly and the rooms were large, very clean and nicely set out. We only spent one day there but wished we could have stayed longer. We visited the local microbrewery and had a great walk along the river where we met so many nice friendly local people and their dogs. We ate our evening meal and breakfast at the restaurant attached to the hotel, where once again we met with excellent service and friendliness. The restaurant does close at 9 pm but we came out of the restaurant at around 9.30 and were not made to feel we had to leave. Whistler is quite close and this hotel would make an excellent base for a trip there.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review of our Hotel. Whistler or Vancouver are only 45 mins away, so we are a perfect base camp.

We had come off the late ferry from Nanaimo and were on our way home to the Cariboo, driving in the dark and rain. Our original plan was to travel to Whistler to spend the night but the rain and wind caused us to want to get off the road. In the dark, we were happy to see the Best Western sign. The night clerk (it was 11:30 pm) was welcoming and friendly. He gave us a great room for a very affordable rate, with a very comfortable king size bed and we slept very well. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and wish we had more time to explore the area. Breakfast at the on-site restaurant was great. Thank you.

There is nothing outstanding about this hotel but it does meet the expected level of the Best Western chain. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and is quiet. Rooms have microwaves, mini fridges and free wifi. The hotel also has a restaurant, lounge and beer and wine store. Visted the restaurant/lounge and was lucky to have a great server. The food was good but the restaurant closes early - 9 pm. There is really no other restaurant/pub options within walking distance. The hotel is right beside a Tim Horton's which is always a good thing.

We stayed at the Best Western in Squamish for a weekend, staying three nights. The room rate was on special making it very reasonable.

The area of Squamish has good access to natural attractions and is close to Whistler, making it a nice alternative for those who want to visit Whistler in the warmer seasons.

Amenity wise it is typical, having a microwave and largish 'mini fridge' in the room, with cable tv, movie service and free wireless internet. Rooms have what you expect, otherwise, such as an iron, blow drier and airconditioning/heating. Everything seemed relatively new though, as is was crisp looking and clean. Hot water came quickly too, which is appreciated and not to be taken for granted! Also, the room we stayed in was quite spacious, which was excellent for us as we packed a lot of bags and food for this trip (which made the size of the fridge quite handy).

The hotel has a restaurant, a beer/wine store, a small fitness area, hot tub and pool with water slide. We had fun with the water slide, which felt like a small version of the ones at the water parks. It was faster than I expected!

Overall I was very impressed, and I give it 5/5 because for our purposes it makes a great 'base camp' for adventures in the region.

Room Tip: Room cleaners will come by in the morning or afternoon, you can call to arrange when you'd prefe...
