    Service was very good. Average hotel but best in the area. Breakfast was included and was good but not spectacular. We were getting ready for bed and discovered dried blood on the pillow case. I took the pillow to the staff who were concerned but never heard another thing about it.

    « Nice Hotel, Beautiful Bar & Restaurant »

    Great hotel, very clean & updated. Only downside is the rooms & beds are so small. We traveled with our daughter for hockey. The full size beds are tiny and great very comfortable if you're sleeping alone. There are only two room options in this hotel. A king bed with no pull out or a room with two "FULL" size beds. I wish they would have roll-aways, but they are not available at this facility. Would recommend to anyone, as it's a very nice hotel, just very small beds, which didn't provide a very good night sleep. Bar is absolutely beautiful, wait staff are excellent. Overall - Great Value, Beautiful Property

    « amazing breakfast »

    though, the room itself was very average and the bed was squeaky.... it was very clean and well maintained. a highlight of my stay was the breakfast.... a very full range of healthy morning choices... not your typical crappy store bought muffins. And the morning hostess was simply amazing, she was friendly helpful and fun. On day two she remember me and ask how my meetings had gone etc. she was simply lovely! Also the young lady who did my check in, was fabulous too, very very cheery and extremely helpful. the property was average... but the people were an A+++

    my husband and I stayed one night and the staff was fantastic. The front desk fella had a smile as soon as we walked in the door as well as all the other staff we saw. The room was exceptionally clean and the food was great in the lounge and breakfast the next morning was also very good. We would stay again and recommend it highly Thanks for the experience and will tell friends.

    From the moment of check-in we were made to feel welcome and a valued customer of Best Western. The staff went out of their way to explain the different amenities and location of them that the hotel had to offer. The lounge/bar was very pleasant with well prepared food and a caring service person. Breakfast was well presented, served warm and you were welcome to fill your travelling coffee mug. I would highly recommend this facility to any traveller

    Stayed with my son. Exterior of hotel looks old, needs a new paint color but once inside its much nicer. Can still tell its older building but its clean and nice decor. Crown mouldings and nice furniture. Free breakfast until 9am which was hard to get downstairs to somedays as being on holidays you want to sleep in, 9:30- 10 like most hotels would be great. Air conditioner when it kicked in was loud but after a few days we got used to it. The curtains are great blackout ones to keep sun out which was awesome. Staff were really nice and when I requested a microwave it brought up promptly. Beds & bedding are really comfy and there is nice big flat screen tvs. Bathroom is small (no fan) but is completely renovated and nice (granite).

    The staff was super friendly and accommodating, bed was comfortable. The outside of the building could use an update but inside was comfortable. The bar staff was very helpful going above and beyond. The elevator needs updating, a little scary lol

    This was a great hotel for the price. We booked in advance and noticed a different price the day we departed. The front desk staff assisted us with the lower rate. The room was comfortable, the exercise facility was perfect, the hot tub was very clean and inviting, and it had a nice breakfast.

    « Perfect place to stay in Trail! »

    My wife and i were travelling through BC from Kelowna to Alberta and decided to stay in Trail. After looking online at availability and prices, we decided to go with the Best Western Plus as i have stayed at other BWP hotels and have been very pleased with them. There was no disappointment here! The room was perfect......clean, modern and quiet. Very comfortable bed and the window even opened a touch to let in a bit of fresh air instead of using the A/C. The front desk staff (Aaron) was excellent! Greeted us right away....seamless check in....and good information about where to eat, etc. We were very impressed with his professionalism and enthusiasm. He looked like he enjoyed what he did, and it was refreshing to see. There is plenty of parking and the hotel is connected to a restaurant (Highly recommended, I will review it on its own as it was very good), and a liquor store which was great for grabbing some drinks and using the room mini fridge! Don't forget to have the complimentary HOT breakfast! It was perfect and has something for everyone. Very good value there. We would recommend this hotel and stay there again. Some people stated that is was expensive, but for what you get off the highway, it is comparable and above and beyond nice.

    « Disappointed »

    Surprised at the price $161 for senior in Trail BC on the highway?!! We had to move rooms because there was water coming from somewhere in the bathroom and making the carpet all wet in the entrance. Not nice to walk on with bare feet. Weird. In our second room the fridge ran all night and froze everything in it. No temperature gauge to change coolness and it was irritating to listen to all night. On the upside Happy hour at Foxy's was great. Front staff at check-in recommended the Bellini's and they were lovely at half price $3. Staff were friendly and efficient. Rooms were clean and wifi was good. Air conditioner worked great. Volume on TV was locked at 20 which was a little difficult to hear, but good selection of channels. We enjoyed a walk down across the bridge over the Columbia River and the huge mural on the Museum.

    « I do enjoy staying at this hotel! »

    This is one of my favorite places to stay, when I have to travel for work. Trail, B.C. is such a neat location, and this hotel is, perhaps, the very best the city has to offer. The hotel's staff are quite friendly, although that may be because they are Canadian (sorry, but Canadians, from my own experience, tend to be much friendlier then those of us from the U.S.). The rooms are always kept exceptionally clean, with comfortable beds, and......Well, the hotel is just very nice, in general. I always enjoy my stays there :)

    « Comfortable bed, clean room overall, ok restaurant »

    - very comfortable bed - clean sheet and clean bathroom - bar soap was not preferred in my own opinion - very very polite and friendly staff - in the middle of a "highway" yet walking distance to the downtown of Trail - close to Foxy restaurant - food is alright, not bad - pretty pleasant stay for business trip - will recommend to colleagues and friends

    Another great stay at this hotel. Staff at front desk are friendly. Rooms are modern. Cable selection was good. Wifi was good and did not kick out. There is a breakfast in the morning that has a good variety. There is an elevator at the lobby but can be quite slow sometimes.

    « Best bed! »

    Great hotel to pass through. It has a hot tub but it only fits 4 people in it and the fitness room is small but functional. The rooms are spacious and the king bed is heavenly! I'm looking into purchasing the mattress. The breakfast in the morning was good. Very satisfied with my stay. Check out Pino's Authentic Italian restaurant for dinner. It's walking distance from the hotel and is fantastic!

    The hotel is a good place to stay .The staff is very friendly and helpful . I did not expect a rate of $ 157.69 plus taxes in Trail . I would go back just because of a well trained and friendly staff . Breakfast was good. Did not see to many other hotels in area .

    « Very Nice »

    Friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Nicely updated. Basic breakfast comapared to other bw properties which could be improved upon. Eggs looked industrial. Room very good and updated. An attached restaurant, roxys, was also very good. The fitness area has several cardio and weight machines. It could benefit from some exercise mats and a better layout. Very nice place to stay and central to downtown for a walk.

    My husband and I were headed to Osoyoos when are truck broke down. We got towed to trail in the middle of the night. When we came to find a room they were very accommodating and welcoming. The next morning we asked about a place to fix are truck and the man at the front desk gave us the best place to go and told us were not to go. I would come here every time hands down!!

    Have stayed here a couple of times. The room was clean and a good size. The staff was friendly especially the breakfast person. The provided breakfast was good. There is a beverage store on site which is convenient. The motel is close to town and you could walk to restaurants but it's a few blocks. The on site restaurant is closed on Sundays.

    We were in Trail for a car show so rather than drive back to Colbert, we stayed overnight. The hotel gave a group (event rate for those of us who were involved in the car show. It was convenient and close to our friends house who had hosted a barbecue.

    « Convenient location, friendly staff »

    We enjoyed our one-night stay here as we crossed BC along the Crowsnest Highway. At first, I was a little put-off by the fact that there was a liquor store attached to the hotel (there were some interesting folks hanging about when we arrived), but the hotel experience itself was good. The room was well-sized for a family of four. One big suggestion would be to add a fan in the bathroom. Ours had a low ceiling and a fan would have helped clear the steam after all four of us had our showers. We loved their commitment to being green, too.

    « My night in Trail »

    Hotel was great, however I found it weird I had to unplug the tv to plug in the coffee maker. The ice buckets in the room should come with a disposable liner. One never knows what the guest prior had in the bucket! Other than that it was fine

    « Great Front Desk Service »

    Stayed at the Best Western in Trail and can not say enough about the staff who arranged for a late check-out and a taxi to the airport without me even asking. Free breakfast was also a nice touch and a convenience store/liquor store attached was great.

    This is a nice, well kept hotel, which is good since there are only another 2-3 hotels/motels in the area. The staff are friendly and efficient, the hotel is clean, the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. They provide a decent breakfast and you probably can't ask for too much more!

    We found this hotel to be excellent. Great location and very clean. The staff were extremely helpful. The beds were the best. Sheets and towels were soft and comfortable.

    « Stay for Sking @ Red Mountain »

    Excellent hotel (only one in Trail) including the restaurant / bar (Foxies) with excellent food! It's about 15 min to Red Mountain, 50 to Whitewater. Trust me you won't leave the hotel as there is nothing available as far as decent restaurant / evening life! There is also a liquor store on the premises so no need to drive at night!

    « Small Beds »

    The rooms were small so we were crowed and the oversize single beds made for a very long night because we were sharing the bed. If you are alone or a couple they would be fine, they were comfortable. The room was very clean, as was the rest of the hotel and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was your usual hotel fare, not outstanding but adequate and tasty. We would stay there again only if we were travelling as a couple and not with our family.

    « Trail has a real problem. No place to stay except the Best Western Columbia River »

    Trail has a real lack of good places to stay. You'd think that with all the money that has flowed through this town over the past +100 years of the smelter running that some of it would have stuck to a decent mid priced hotel. This place is fine. No surprises. No gems. No disappointments. It's a bit rich but who's going to argue over maybe $30 night. The breakfast is marginally above average. The beds are great. The black out curtains do the job. It's clean and quiet. I'd prefer to stay in Rossland 10 kms up the hill as Trail is slowly decaying as Teck reduces their workforce through automation. Walking around Trail in the AM, although bigger than Rossland, is far more sad than walking the few blocks of Rossland. Too bad. Trail was once a great Cominco company town. Now it's just a sad skeleton lacking choice in accommodation.

    « Best hotel in the region »

    Stayed for approx 8 days over 2 weeks. All staff were friendly to deal with. The rooms are modern. They do have a breakfast in the morning but I never did make it there but heard it was decent. It is generally a quiet room, but even being on the 4th floor you could still hear the traffic and the customers entering the liquor store. The wifi was good, cable selection was the typical basic selection. If your in the region this is the place to stay.

    « Best in Trail »

    The hotel is a reliable if unspectacular place to stay in Trail. It is very well located near downtown, and although it is on a busy highway, there is very little traffic noise. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are not great, but provide the basics to start the day. Staff are very pleasant. Price is a bit high, but there's a lack of competition in town.

    This is one of the best experiences I have had at Best Western. The room was clean, walking distance to where I needed to be, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the food quality at the restaurant (Foxy's) was really good and the breakfast was really good as well. I am very happy with my stay and would definitely come back the next time I visit Trail.

    « Excellent place to stay in Trail »

    I was in Trail on business and stayed at this hotel. It is right off the main road through town, so I was concerned it would be noisy but it was not. It has obviously been fairly recently renovated, and the rooms were very nice. They are not huge, but are an adequate size, very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. There is the usual desk and dresser,with a flat screen TV, and a nice touch of a charging station on the desk with two plug ins and two USB ports. The bathroom was clean, the linens were fresh and the shower pressure was great. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, offering good suggestions for where to eat and where to go for a walk. They loaned me and my colleague knives so we could eat some fruit in our rooms. The location is very central, just a short walk to downtown, where there is a neat little place serving breakfast,ice cream and organic coffee, and about a 5 minute walk across the Trail bridge brings you to a stairwell down to a sidewalk along the Columbia riverbank. A few minutes on that takes you to Gyro park which is a very nice peaceful morning walk. The only thing which would have been nice would have been a recycling bin either in the lobby or in the room for water bottles and such.

    « Rossland alternative »

    Visited while skiing Red Mountain outside nearby Rossland BC. Went there President's weekend; nil left in Rossland for rooms; booked here instead. About 5 miles from Rossland, still convenient to the ski hill. Rooms fairly large-2 queens were not tight-and adequately but not luxuriously furnished; fairly new looking and very clean. Free breakfast was better than some hotels; waffles/eggs/bacon/cereal/fruit/yogurt; nice bar on main level as well. Free parking. Friendly/accommodating & helpful staff. Only downside was relatively high price. I'd stay again.

    « Pricey but good »

    I live in Trail so have not stayed in the hotel although friends who stay there tell me how impressed they are. It is a very well-kept, clean, modern hotel. I have eaten in the dining room, Foxie's, but don't go there often. It isn't that the food isn't good - it is quite good, and pretty reasonably priced considering you are getting fine dining when it is really bar food. If it is that good, why don't I go there more often? Because the hotel owners won't give anyone a break when coming to town for a conference or special event. I support businesses in town that support the community.

    « Beautiful hotel, just a little too expensive! »

    I could tell this hotel was renovated recently as it was classier than I expected, and super high-detailed clean. The beds were comfortable. Restaurant was mediocre and very expensive, but the complimentary breakfast had lots of options that I enjoyed (eggs, baked goods, fresh fruit, etc). I was snowed in to Trail and had no option but to stay here a couple nights. The "distressed rate" was a lot more than I expected it to be, considering my circumstances. It wasn't any lower than prices I'd seen quoted online. But the service was great, and I appreciated the proximity to downtown so I could enjoy my evenings out, shopping, and dining in town since I didn't care for the hotel restaurant. The only cheaper option worth staying at is the Glenwood, but the location is no good there if its winter and you need to get around on foot like I did.

    « The only place we stat »

    We come to Trail often and only stay here. Never a problem and rooms are clean. Staff is friendly and the breakfast is good to grab and go. The restaurant is good too when it's open. We also like the beds and the family suite is good as well. I do wish the bathrooms had more space to put your things. We will stay again.

    « Very Good Except for Price »

    All of the Best Western properties where I've stayed were very good with product and service but this one in Trail, BC, is priced at $139 compared to most others at $109 or lower and some as low as $79. This makes the value of the Trail property somewhat lower than other Best Westerns.

    I had book a non-refundable rate on the best western site, and i had a delayed due to weather and flights weren't able to come into Castlegar. I called an asked and notified the hotel that I cannot show up on day 1, and making sure there weren't a no-show. The hotel staff at the time acknowledges my absence and make sure my room was still available the following day, and furthermore he told me he will look into see what he can do about the cancellation (although he did not have the authority to do so). Booking non-refundable assumes the risk of inclination of weather, etc... But i later got a call from the hotel (1 hr or so) from the same individual saying that not only my hotel room booking is okay, also, my 1st night has been refunded. This is awesome, as this is something they went out of their way to do for me!

    « Achieved BW Plus Standards »

    The BW Plus Columbia River Hotel is arguably the best property to stay at in Trail. We spent a couple of nights there and they met the higher standards you might expect in a BW Plus rated hotel. Our room was modern, clean, comfortable and quiet, though you might find rooms closer to the main drag to be more affected by traffic noise. Internet was ok, but not the greatest in terms of speed. Having an in-room small fridge was a bonus. The parking lot is a bit chopped-up though it seems like there's ample capacity and if need be, bags can be dropped near the main entry. The lobby area itself is small and nondescript and our check-in by the front desk staff was polite and efficient. The onsite lounge offered a pretty reasonable Happy Hour with fair discounts on drinks and appies, worth stopping by! The Fitness Room is very basic, fairly congested with a few pieces of universal equipment with an adjacent hot tub. The overnight stay comes with breakfast. It was average with a few hot items (scrambled eggs, ham, waffles), pastries, yogurt, fruit, coffee, but still nice to have available nonetheless! Location of the Best Western in downtown Trail is excellent, everything is pretty much walkable. Overall, next time we visit Trail we'll definitely stay again!

    The very friendly staff, great complimentary breakfast that had a personal touch, the clean and well equipped rooms all made our stay very enjoyable. It would be easy to make a personal recommendation to anybody looking for a place to stay in Trail to suggest this hotel.

    Best Western PLUS Columbia River Hotel in Trail, British Columbia, is a nice hotel, conveniently located for any leisure activities in the Trail area, and right by the Teck Trail Operations if you are doing business there. The onsite lounge and restaurant is good. The breakfast bar is decent quality and convenient. The rooms are fairly well kept up and clean.

    I took my parents here for an evening before my moms surgery in Trail BC. The room was spotless, beds were comfortable, staff very friendly and an awesome breakfast to start the day! Kudos to all who work there! Great job everyone! I highly recommend anyone going to Trail, to have a great nights sleep here.

    It was a bit expensive for an older property with small rooms. It was clean and quiet. Staff seemed somewhat undertrained but were very nice and trying hard. The lounge was very expensive with mediocre food.
