    « Excellent hotel and amenities in a small community »

    excellent, clean welcoming and allow dogs. Unfortunately for some of my colleagues they were not allowed to leave dogs in their rooms even if kennelled can understand but perhaps some other arrangement could be made.

    « Better Best Western. »

    We stayed one night with family and our 1 year old daughter. Room was a two bed mini suite with kitchenette and sofa bed in the little living room. The whole hotel was very, very clean. Our bedroom and the rest of the suite was very, very clean. There were ?cleaned? tags on the kitchen cupboard doors and the tv remote came in a ?cleaned? baggie... it was clean. Once again, for the record... clean. The staff were super helpful and very polite and pleasant. The breakfast was hands down the best, best western freebie breakfast I've ever had and could easily have been charged for as an additional. The mineral pool could have been 4-5 degrees warmer to be honest but I'm really having to search for faults in this hotel. We had a nice time and would certainly go back and recommend, if in the area.

    « Leisure bookings »

    Excellent staff, clean and comfortable rooms, this is our hotel of choice when we go to the theater, it is pet friendly and on the rare occasion when we have brought out dogs, the front desk staff is called a couple weeks before we go and arrange a dog sitter for us while we are at the theater, just another service the front desk staff does.

    « Great stop in Chemainus »

    We stay here when we are in the area and there are so many good things about the hotel. The staff is exceptional, the pool is great and the breakfast is always good. The suites have kitchenettes which is helpful as there aren't a ton of restautant options close by.

    We stayed in the Chemainus Best Western Plus Hotel the property was very clean all around. Lobby was bright and pleasant they include a breakfast which had a wide variety of fresh fruit, pastries and cooked food. The pool & change room was clean, fitness room had several pieces of equipment but some in bad shape. Wi-Fi in Hotel worked pretty good for a full house.

    I was very impressed by the "plus" in Best Western Plus. We were upgraded to a suite at no extra cost. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful (as is everyone on Vacouver Island). Nice to have a hot breakfast buffet. All around great stay.

    « Great hotel but pool needs more womens showers »

    The rooms are cozy and clean. Service is great. The only thing that i see as a downfall is the fact that in the womens change room for the pool, there is one shower that is in a stall and locks. Women need more than that and have to leave the pool in order to shower in my room when it is occupied. (women take a while to shower). Please look into that. Otherwise WONDERFUL and I highly recommend the Best Western.

    « Cleanest Hotel,most efficiently staffed & politest helpful staff, I have ever had the pleasure to stay with. »

    From the time you enter the lobby to check in, the cleanliness of the Hotel and most helpful staff are evident. it is like being home in comfort. It is quiet and nestled in a small town on Vancouver Island with a reputation of some of the best theater groups with Plays that range from modern to Shakespeare. The towns Murals are exquisitely painted on many buildings throughout the town depicting the history of the early era's First Nation inhabitants up to todays artisans. The walking tour is most pleasant, passing many small gardens and Artists dwelling on the way. There is so much to see in this small town on the Island that I will have to return and stay longer to see all I wanted to see but could not on this visit due to time constraints, If you are going to Vancouver Island in the near future, Chemainus is a wonderful relaxing must stay on your visit. It is about 20 minutes from the ferry landing just below Nanimo and only 15 minutes from Duncan. So much to see in between as well. Plan to make the stop, you will likely agree that I am right.

    I had planned and booked this room in the best western Chemainus approximately a wk in advance for me and my grand-daughter. I asked specifically for a king size bed for us as we share one bed, but wen we arrived there was no king sized bed and also the queen that was in our room only had half sized pillows and very hard, so was very hard to sleep comfortably, but the worst thing that happens was that we were kept awake with so much noise!...I also had asked specifically to please book us in a quiet room where we could actually get some sleep as we were going to need our energy to visit with family for the two days...anyway we were very disappointed with the stay at ur BW Chamainis and I hope u can somehow do something in the future for our next stay as we will b back in Chamainus visiting family again and did enjoy ur fitness areas, thankyou for your concern, Marilyn Lelond

    « Very Good ~ but we paid for it. »

    Staff were very accomadating. Hotel was sold out. Parking lot full too. Nice pool, weight room. Very good breakfast: waffles, 2 types of scrambled eggs, sausage, hashbrowns. Nice waffle topping choices. Our room was well designed, with a sitting area, & a separate bedroom area, with Kitchinette. Excellent lay out. I thought the cost was on the high side. If it was twenty dollars less. We would be regular visitors.

    « Good Comfortable Hotel »

    Travel for business over 100 nights per year but my first visit to this hotel. Nicely surprised and this modern well decorated, good located, spacious hotel that is truly pet friendly from what I could tell. I didn't bring a pet as this was a business trip but any hotel that has paw wipes and a container of doggie milk bones in the lobby has got to be tops in my opinion for those who have traveling fur-babies. I am coming back for a vacation with my labs as this location can't be beat. Rooms large, well equipped, clean, very good bathrooms with full size tubs and a VERY NICE Memory foam bed that I just loved. Yup the sofa was soft but I sure didn't see any sagging. Breakfast was as good as any for complimentary hotel breakie, they had all the basics and it was a pleasant area to eat in. Hotel was very quiet. I'm coming back to explore this area and staying here.

    « Best choice in Chemainus »

    Decor is pleasant, breakfast served is great & has alot of choice. Rooms cleanliness can be improved. Bed is in poor shape & really needs to be updated ASAP. Couch in living room sagged noticeably to one side and had multiple rips.

    « Clean, well laid out hotel, great value »

    Our family of four enjoyed the hotel. The beautiful breakfast certainly added value to the stay as well - a variety of hot and cold options for everyone. The kids loved the pool as well. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

    We were very happy with the service and amenities the Best Western Plus Chemainus offered. Kitchenette was well appointed, pool was fun for the kids and breakfast selection was great. Easy, straightforward 30-40 minute drive from the Departure Bay, Nanaimo Ferry Terminal. We would stay again :)

    « Great place to stay when attending the theatre »

    Very accommodating and helpful staff! We arrived very early and she was able to let us check in. The front staff was able to recommend a fantastic pizza place that even delivered. The bed was so comfy and the room was very nice.

    « Horrible customer service front desk & pool management »

    I normally do not write bad reviews, but I felt the need to bring this one forward for families travelling here. To begin, I have an 8-month-old baby & 7-year-old girl. When we entered the pool area our first day, there were no chairs as two were being used as ?nets? for a pool game and a ball being punched by 5 or so boys with force back and forth, many times, exiting the pool into the area where my infant in the car seat was sleeping. I have my 8 month old baby and my 7 year old daughter in the pool with my husband. When I grabbed the chair away from their ?net? to sit in as no one was offering any up, the kid said no we are using it for the game. When I went to the front desk with my concern, the lady with the glasses and bun said she would go check. She just did a count to make sure the parents were there and looked at me and yelled, for everyone to hear, ?all of their parents are here? and left. Trying to deliberately embarrass me, I'm not sure because they all looked at me, parents included, and they went even louder and harder with their game. I went to the front desk and said it's out of control and she said to me in the rudest tone of voice ?well, they are allowed to have fun you know, just wait till yours is that age,? as I only had my 8 month old with me and she didn't realize I had another kid in the pool. She said this with a chuckle and roll of the eyes. All while other customers were there and watching her rude comment, she was still not trying to resolve the situation and make all parties comfortable. I said we do have a 7 year old girl in there and it's extremely violent and disturbing. She said ?well she cant be in there, she's too young.? I said my husband is there with her. Are you kidding me? I felt like this is a joke. I have worked in customer service and this is 100% not how you handle the situation. End of story, she was rolling her eyes and making my concerns invalid and trying to embarass me in public. Making me feel like we are in the wrong when we travel all the time and I have never experienced such chaos uncontrolled in a pool area with zero concern from the staff. Every pool we've been in had rules to avoid these unruly situations. I always talked great about the best western Chemainus to my friends from the mainland, but I would not stay here again due to the rudeness and lack of safety and concern for all guests comfort.

    « Best Hotel Ever »

    We came to Chemainus from Campbell River with our two grandchildren aged 4 and 9 to see the Murals and the Christmas lights in Ladysmith. I was thoroughly impressed with decor, cleanliness and shininess of this hotel. I thought it was new and was totally surprised when a local told me it was at least 5 years old. The front desk staff were very friendly and let us check in early. The kids loved the room with the pullout couch and their own tv. The Queen suite included a small bedroom and a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, stove top, and even a dishwasher. Also a Koenig coffee machine with complimentary coffee, creamers and water. After a bit of exploring the room, we went to the pool and hot tub, awesome. On the way I viewed the very well equipped fitness room. That evening we went to Ladysmith to view the lights with very informative map the front desk staff gave us. Again awesome! After a great night sleep on very comfortable beds we headed for breakfast - a full hot breakfast, scrambled eggs, ham, yogurt, fruit , waffles, cereal, coffee, juice and much, much more. We were stuffed. Since we had also been granted a late checkout, we did another round in the pool and hot tub before departing at noon. As per the title, on the way out, I mentioned to the front desk staff - love your hotel, the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Thanks.

    « My Fiance and I love it here »

    We have been coming to this Best Western every time we visit the area. The staff have been fabulous and been very accommodating with our delayed flights over the times we've been there. I have never had an issue with this facility and because of the experience we've had here we also look at Best Western first in other areas and in the United States as our first place to go. If you are looking for a quiet place to sleep and really nice staff and not too far from Chemainus, as well as areas around it stay here! Thank you for not only the great service but also, giving my fiance and I the same room as we were not able to go home due to our plane not taking off! We have a rewards card because of the staff here and we love it!

    We have stayed here several times, and everything has always been great. We love the suites with separate bedroom.

    « Everything was just Right »

    The hotel looks nice and is conveniently situated with easy close parking. The large clean room was nicely outfitted with everything one could need including the often elusive hook on the bathroom door and towel rails. There was an ironing board and iron, hairdryer and the heater was easy to operate. 2 luggage racks, chairs and various tables made it very comfortable. The breakfast food area while small had everything for a tasty meal and the eating area had plenty of seating. All in all a lovely place to stay and I regretted it being only one night.

    spent a night in this facility in Oct 2017 - spacious suite for 4 adults. Lovely breakfast included in the price. Would definitely stay again although would suggest requesting suite at front of hotel as logging company located at back and trucks arrive early morning

    We had a great stay! A king, corner room with a cute little balcony! The sunrise in the morning was enjoyed. Great room layout, lots of space! Super clean room! Wish we had stayed longer! Really well stocked! The girl at check-in was fantastic, friendly and helpful! Local pizza place delivered right to your room! Bonus! We will definitely stay here again, and will be recommended to others as well!

    The ambiance in this hotel is friendly, warm, casual and helpful. It is a real treasure in this little town. A great place to stay on a trip up or down the island. We went to Chemainus to take in some live theatre.l. No complaints. I'd highly recommend it.

    It was a nice surprise to have the kitchenette in the room. The separate bedroom area was really nice, and all rooms appeared to have that feature. It was very close to the Chemainus Theatre, which offers a wonderful buffet dinner and a great play.

    We stayed at the hotel as part of our trip to the Chemainus dinner theatre. The hotel is an easy walk to the theatre and we also enjoyed a stop at the Green Lantern Pub on the way back to the Best Western. Really enjoyed the stay at the Best Western. The suite was great and worked very well for socializing with friends before and after the dinner theatre. Very comfortable stay and the breakfast was great.

    I stayed at this hotel while on a business trip. Although it was farther away from my work destination, it was worth the commute. Everyone on staff that I encountered was lovely, from the front desk to the breakfast chefs. The room was huge! The bed was comfortable, and after a long day of work the comfort was appreciated. It was also extremely quiet in the evenings! I have never stayed at a hotel as relaxing. Thank you, if I am working in the area again I will return.

    Off of the round-about in quiet Chemainus, B.C. there is the oasis of a Plus Best Western, with a more than filling breakfast (not simply continental) to add to the relaxation. Unlike many hotels in my Canadian travels, this one offers up the location of a fine dining pub across the street. Needed a rest before my journey continued. This is a perfect time-out for a motorcyclist.

    Chemainus Best Western was easy to get to and staff at the front desk super helpful at check-in. Rooms were a good size and very clean. Bathrooms were likewise good sized and clean. Coffee maker and fridge together with glass glasses and 2 complimentary water bottles were appreciated. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were very dark. Really liked this! Would like if there was a USB port available but it wasn't a huge negative as we all travel with our full chargers. Breakfast was really good. Not everyone in our family likes eggs but these were some of the best. Sausages, toast, other breads, muffins, cereals, waffles, juice, yoghurt etc was all available and very well presented. The staff did a great job keeping everything clean and well maintained. Tables were cleaned well and quickly each time guests left ensuring that there was always available seats and tables for people to sit down and enjoy their food. If we visit this area again (which is spectacularly beautiful) would choose this hotel in a second!

    Impressed from the first greeting from the front desk.. We booked this hotel for one night while visiting the island. The friendliness, cleanliness and community of Chemainus kept us there for two. This hotel is very well managed, at least as far as we could tell. Great complimentary breakfast, clean rooms and pool area. It's a pleasant ten minute walk to the downtown area, some really good restaurants and -- of course -- the theatre that we must check out next time. That next time will include staying at this hotel again. Highly recommend it.

    This is an excellent place to stay. In fact we liked it so much that we stayed twice during our holiday. The rooms are large with either two queens or with one queen and a separate sitting area + kitchenette. Everything was spotlessly clean and the included breakfast had freshly cooked items such as real scrambled eggs and sausages. The hotel is a bit out of town but you can easily walk into the theatre and the town centre. Chemainus is a charming town from the forestry era that has reinvented itself as a tourist town. There are restored buildings, murals and many interesting shops and restaurants. It is well worth a visit. If you are looking for a hotel between Nanaimo and Victoria, I would definitely recommend coming here.

    Excellent property in a very small town en route from Victoria to the Pacific Rim National Park. But I had to pay twice for one room night. I initially made an honest mistake, when I got the month wrong on a "non-refundable" booking. The hotel staff went by the letter of the contract, and refused to change the booking from May to June. So I ended up paying twice.

    « Loved this place & Pet friendly too! »

    I have to start by saying, any place that thinks of my pooch as much as they do me, is A plus in my books. While I wasn't travelling with my 4 legged boy this trip, BW won my heart with the bowl of puppy treats, puppy towels and sitting spot, as soon as you walk in the door! Staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Pool amenities are basic, but clean. There were a few life jackets, and baby floaty devices, for use. Again, these little things add up. Hotel was clean, breakfast was plentiful with warm, and cool options. The quaint community has everything you need for a couples weekend away. Grab a bite from a local cafe, take a walk along one of the beaches, or take in a farmers market, you won't be disappointed. We would definitely stay here again.

    We visited Chemainus for a family get together for which I booked two suites. I requested two rooms close together. I wanted adjoining rooms, but these are not available at this location. The second room across the hall was as close as possible and was appreciated. The kids used the pool and were happy with the size and cleanliness. The location was across the street from a good family restaurant/pub - the food there was excellent. Also, the hotel was close to a branch of the Trans-Canada trail, which afforded a pleasant walk through a forest and into the center of town. The location was easy to find as well, just a 2 km drive off the Trans Canada Highway. While we were there a team of community volunteers were planting flowers along the road in front of the hotel which made the setting even more appealing.

    Staff were super friendly, polite and professional. Room was well appointed and meticulously clean. Hot breakfast with fruit, yogurt and cereals was much more than we expected. Many of the old character buildings are decorated with interesting murals and the theatre with its wonderful performances is next to none. Well done and thanks Best Western for enhancing our wonderful experience!

    « Mishap happened......... Redeemed themselves nicely »

    At first we got in late.got kids into room and found our bed wasn't made. Talked to front desk. Guy was by himself in a full hotel. And did his best to correct the matter. I felt I had to help him out so I changed my own sheets thst night. Oh yeah the fire alarm battery was dying..... Beep and then we would..... Beep.... get almost to..... bleep... sleep. So I unplugged it. I was angry. Very angry. Even next day, the head housekeeper delivered a bottle of red wine and a boxchocolates to our room with some little extras to say I'm really sorry. We left there feeling like it was a mistake and they truly wanted to make it better. Beds comfy, breakfast was great, daughter said awesome, towels feel so nice and the sheets felt great. Rooms felt modern hotel was clean. The pool was also clean and comfortably warmed. Not chlorine it was mineral pool. Tasted gross for a mouthful but no chemicals. They even fixed my girls stuffies and even made the floor bed we created for our oldest daughter.

    Booked a two bed room, and was happy to discover the beds were in separate rooms, and we had a large living space and kitchenette. The room was clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable. There were a couple hockey teams there for a tournament at the same time, but we had no problems with noise levels. The breakfast surpassed my expectations. There was hot sausage or bacon, hashbrowns, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, along with cereal, yogurt, and build-your-own waffles. It was all delicious.

    « Exceeded our expectations »

    We were happy to find the hotel went above and beyond what we were expecting in a smaller community. The staff, the generous size of our room and the really excellent breakfasts convinced us that we should come back. One "minus" though, when did hotels start putting those silly little pillows on the beds instead of, say, two king size pillows on a king bed. We find this everywhere now and it is not comfortable.

    We were attending the Chemainus Theatre performance, and managed to get a reservation at the Best Western. It is fairly close to the theatre; convenience and good value. The room was quite spacious and even had a kitchenette. The bedroom was separated from the rest of the room by sliding doors. It was quiet and clean throughout. The staff were friendly and seemed to enjoy their positions. We would stay there again and would recommend this hotel to others travelling to Chemainus.

    « Excellent place to stay »

    Had to do an over-nighter in Chemainus and was pleasantly surprised by the comfort, quality, and amenities of this inn. The four of us stayed in a "queen suite" which was clean, quiet, comfortable, and nicely appointed. It had a separate alcove for the queen bed, which afforded us some privacy while our two kids took the sofa bed. It had a small but well-appointed kitchen, which we happily used to prepare a small dinner. We also made good use of the indoor saltwater pool and the jacuzzi, both of which were clean and well-serviced. The price included a nice buffet breakfast which featured the usual continental breakfast items (toast, cereal, pastries, juice, and coffee) plus scrambled or boiled eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, and waffles with strawberries and fresh whipped cream. Staff were friendly and competent. We would definitely return to this hotel if in that area again. The only downside for some people, perhaps, is that the inn is just outside the town of Chemainus so it misses out a bit on the charm of the small, artsy town, but it's really not too far to walk or drive to the local amenities (live theatre, restaurants, shops). It's adjacent to the golf course though, and only a minute off the highway for easy access to everything else.

    We had tickets to the evening performance 'Two Piano's For Hands', at the theatre. We have visited this quaint town of Chemainus many times over the years, enjoying the unique shops , and dining in various food venues. We watched the new hotel rise from the ground, and heard good reports from friends who have stayed there. Our 'overnite' was a good experience.... the room was comfortable, quiet, and very clean. Breakfast was superb, a varied and large choice of items, we enjoyed a comfortable table by the window. After a speedy check out ..... our statement was delivered to the room sometime during the nite, we traveled on down Island to complete our weekend with a visit to the Butchart Gardens.

    « Quality to which all BW should aspire »

    From the time you walk in the door, this hotel shows you it's different. Imagine walking to the front desk to line up to check in. Instead of being ignored as you wait, unsure if you should be trying to get the attention of the second employee busy behind the desk or just waiting quietly like a good Canadian, one of the employees looks up and smiles at you. "Welcome, I will be with this guest a few minutes more, then you're next. Please help yourself to a beverage and cookie and have a seat while you wait." That sets the tone for your entire stay. The rooms are immaculate as are all public areas. Pet friendly like we've not experienced before, a sparkling fresh breakfast room with an abundance of choices and staff everywhere that warmly greet you and fuss over the dog (I think some even miss our dearly departed pet). If there's any negative it would be that surrounding properties are not beautiful, ideally they would be parks and gardens but those are nearby if not visible from your room.

    Arrived in Chemainus not knowing too much about it---what a little gem. Wonderful and historic murals and a first class theatre! Our visit to the tourist bureau provided us excellent information. We found the Chemainus Inn and were very pleased. A fairly new property, the rooms are spacious and well-equipped. We had a queen suite which included a separate bedroom and a good sized sitting area and kitchen. You could spend quite a few nights there and be content. Only negative, over which there is no control, is there is not any kind of a view and the front of the hotel overlooks a fairly busy road and roundabout. Staff were very good and the included breakfast got us going in the morning. All in all, a very good stay.

    « A Good Choice! »

    Business brought us to Vancouver Island and the Chemainus/Duncan area. While there were hotels closer to our points of work, strong recommendations from associates caused us to choose this hotel. Everything from check-in to check-out went very smoothly. We had to add a third night at the very last moment. The staff worked very hard to accommodate our request. FYI, a complimentary breakfast is provided and is certainly acceptable. One can also grab a 'brown bag' if you are in a hurry. I should add our suite was very well appointed and comfortable. It included a full kitchen with all the necessities. I would strongly recommend this hotel.

The room itself was spotless, beds comfortable and the breakfast was very good, with a great selection for many tastes.

    my wife, 16month old, mother-in-law and I were passing through the city. We booked a two bedroom suite with a kitchenette. The room was spacious and clean. The kitchen had everything you would need. Great room for families with young children. We did not stay long enough to use any of the amenities. Positives: - easy check-in and the staff was super friendly. - there are daily freshly baked cookies that were super yummy - the included breakfast is a full breakfast and it was of good quality - you have access to hot water, coffee, choice of many high qualities, juice 24/7 - the rooms were clean - the kitchenette had everything you needed to make a simple meal. a real bonus for families with small children. - the room had a K-cup machine..and 4 k-cups. decent coffee in your own room! Negatives: - the iron in our room didn't work particularly well. since we were only staying one night I didn't bother to play around with it and figure out if it was me or the iron - the room had a sofa bed which we used. it wasn't particularly comfortable but then again are any sofa beds? just be aware. Overall, we were really impressed and would definitely stay there again

    This hotel is off the beaten path and a real gem! Breakfast area is clean and well laid out. Food was good also. I had a single queen suite (room 308) which was very clean and comfortable. Two flat screens, one in the living area and one over the desk which can also be viewed from the bedroom. The only annoyance was that my desk chair slowly leaked down so I had to keep raising it back up. They use Keurig coffee machines in the kitchenettes which are great for one quick cup if you're up and out the door early (pretty much the ONLY way I travel). I'd recommend this hotel to any of my friends and colleagues.

    I agree with a previous reviewer that I am unable to fathom what singles out Chemainus but it provided us with a good base for 3 nights to go out to Port Renfrew and north to Cathedral Grove and surrounding area. The hotel was very comfortable and the kitchenette allowed us to have some meals in which was nice after travelling around. Breakfast needs to be worked on, especially bread and pastries, and the pool area needs upgrading but overall a nice hotel to stay in. Unless we missed something Chemainus is not overflowing with places to eat so a kitchenette might be worth considering

    « Best hotel in Chemainus by a mile »

    You need to keep your expectations in check before you check in to The Best Western Chemainus. I am not exactly sure what the attraction of Chemainus is in the first place but the hotel is modern and clean and the staff are friendly. Chemainus itself is not a big town, so not exactly sure where the centre is, but this hotel is slightly out of town and there is nothing much around other than a pub across the road (more on that later). The golf course is also nearby and actually looks like quite a nice course, although I didn't look closely. Our room actually looked out the back to a fuel depot, so it was nothing to speak of and in fact the trucks running in and out continuously were throwing up plumes of dust, which meant the window stayed closed. The room has a wall mounted air conditioner which constantly switches on and off during the night trying to regulate the temperature, so apart from being noisy, the temperature goes hot and cold all night. The hotel has cable TV and a good selection of channels, apart from the most useless remote control I have ever encountered. The free WiFi is good and fast. One very nice feature is a decent fitness room which is fairly well equipped. Much better than you would expect from a 3 1/2 star hotel. There was a buffet breakfast served, which smelled pretty good, but the feeding trough was fully occupied when we tried to get some food, so we gave up. I mentioned that eating venues within walking distance of the hotel were scarce. The only place we found was directly across the road - the Horseshoe Bay Pub. What a shocker. It was comedy night and we were only allowed in if we paid the $12 door charge each. The wine was straight out of a cask and the food was very ordinary. But the worse aspect was the comedy. That was crude, vulgar and revolting. They should have paid us $12 to suffer through. So give that place a big miss. You might have to drive down to the centre of the town for something more edible and bearable.

    Don't be lured by the term "Two bedroom suite". The room was only slightly larger than a one bedroom, and only had one bathroom. It was much too small for four adults.

    Combined hotel with Theatre performance. Clean comfortable rooms with a helpful, professional and friendly staff. Good variety at the breakfast buffet. The breakfast room can be very crowded at peak times. Hotel located across from a golf course and is about a 10 minute walk to the town centre. Another very pleasant stay in Chemainus

    « The Best Best Western We've Ever Stayed In! »

    From the moment we entered, it was different - cleaner, more welcoming. The welcoming cookies were perfect. We were traveling with another couple. The two bedroom suite we had reserved was great. The living room gave us a place to converse. 15 minutes after we arrived, the front desk called and asked if everything met our expectation. We used the on site laundry - it was clean and in working order. Breakfast was the most extensive we had ever had at a Best Western. Nicely displayed, full platters, nothing looked like it had been there for hours. In talking to the dining room staff, we learned they have won numerous awards including #1 in British Columbia and #3 in North America. We were not surprised! (She noted that was as high as they could go as the other two have on-sight restaurants which they do not.)

    « Amazing staff, great hotel »

    This is my second stay at this hotel in the last week and each time I've been amazed at just how friendly and helpful the staff are. It's like I'm visiting a luxury hotel where my every request is attended to. Add to that the fact that the rooms are in top shape and well appointed, and this is simply a great little hotel in a fun little town.

    « Surprisingly Good »

    We recently stayed overnight as we were in town for the theatre. Although we booked a few days ahead, we got the very last room which was a handicap room. When we checked in, the room wasn't quite ready so they invited us to have a seat in the lobby and they served us lovely cookies and our choice of beverages. 10 minutes later we entered our bright, large, well equipped room. Within 20 minutes we got a call asking if we needed anything and wishing us a happy anniversary. This is a hotel that is clean, has well trained, friendly staff and knows how to serve guests. The free breakfast in the morning is more than adequate and again the staff was terrific. One point to ponder: We didn't eat dinner before the theatre and when we exited, we drove around the town looking for a place to eat. It seems there is nothing after 9 pm. Perhaps the hotel would consider offering a small cafe for the starving masses in the late evenings??

    « Overall it was very good »

    We were impressed with the hotel when we first checked in...friendly staff, cookies, cleanliness, amenities etc.....until we got to the pool and the morning breakfast. The pool is very COLD and it starts at 3.5 feet...not good if you're travelling with little kids! The morning breakfast had a lot of nice options and was presented well...the problem was for a 75 room hotel only having 11 tables is ridiculous! Why they couldn't open the conference room to alleviate the congestion was explained to me that they had booked it for a conference and were unable to do that. When I complained I had the pleasure of meeting Shane the Asst Manager (?) as he was very apologetic. Still eating bacon and eggs etc while standing with a 3 yr old and a baby is not that easy. Yeah, I'd probably go back as this is the nicest hotel in the Cowichan Valley.

    We recently stayed at the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn for 3 nights & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff were incredibly nice & helpful and all go out of their way to help in whatever you need. The breakfast that is served 'till 10:00 am is one of the best I've had with a great selection of sausage, bacon, eggs, waffles, pastries, etc. The rooms were spacious & very clean and although the air conditioner was a little loud, it's pretty much standard everywhere you stay in my opinion.

    « Best accommodations in Cowichan Valley »

    We stayed here last week, almost by accident because almost every other accommodation in the Cowichan Valley was sold out due to the Sunfest Country Musicfest. Shane and his staff are enthusiastic in their efforts to make our stay enjoyable. The free newspapers, cookies at the front desk, willingness to accommodate pets and spotlessly clean premises rally add to the experience. The complimentary breakfast is robust ... no tired muffins and bland coffee here but freshly and piping hot eggs, bacon, sausages, yogurt, granola, fruit and so on. We had to leave at 4 in the morning to catch a ferry and even at that time of night the light staff on duty had fresh coffee and a road bag filled with snacks at the ready. I grew up in the area and can confirm that you won't regret staying here. Cheers

    Stayed for one night. The rooms are efficient in that they have a little kitchenette in the queen suite. Rooms could be a bit cleaner (floor by the fridge area). Not a big issue. The staff in all my travels (Europe in Oct for 6 weeks) have to be the nicest and happiest I have run across. The front desk is welcoming and knowledgable and even the hotel room servicing folks had a smile. The breakfast is way beyond what I have seen at a BW previously and I was impressed. The blond haired lady who runs this area ... one can tell she takes great pride in her work and her happy mood starts the day off right. Having a selection of papers (Globe/TC) is also a nice touch Good job folks. Maxx Comox..

    « A cozy "home away from home" »

    We were pleasantly surprised to discover that staying at this hotel for 5 nights was a better experience than most hotel stays we've had. Why? Because while we have dealt with competent, friendly hotel staff before, the people who look after guests, from the front desk staff to housekeeping to breakfast room servers, seem genuinely happy and proud to work here, and this came through in spades whenever they interacted with us. Many award plaques dot the wall: now I know why. This is the first hotel I've also been to that offers free pet treats in the lobby along with free oatmeal and raisin and chocolate chip cookies to the human guests! Bright, clean, quiet, cheerful, and family-friendly, their included hot buffet breakfast is a great way to start your day.

Any question imaginable was not only answered but welcomed by the front desk staff! The housekeeping staff made us feel like we were their most important visit of the day! A variety of offerings started each morning with a hearty and yummy breakfast served by such friendly people! Our large suite was quiet, with a very comfortable bed, extremely well appointed with a perfect floor plan and made a perfect place to relax from a busy day and plan the next one!

    « A great place to stay ?? »

    We were hoping for a couple of restful days on Vancouver Island, and both Chemainus and this Best Western Plus more than filled the bill. We were warmly and graciously greeted and pleasantly surprised with an upgraded room. The well-equipped kitchenette was a plus, and the room comfortable and quiet. The property was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The breakfast buffet was significantly better than average. The staff was friendly and helpful, and those warm cookies at the desk were delicious. We'll be back.

    « A Truly Great Place »

    Chemainus used to be a mill town then when the mill closed it really-invented itself,but who knew you could find one of the best Best Western hotels or best of any other similar brand in this small town. I normally rate hotels well if they are clean, comfortable and friendly. This hotel has all of that and more. It starts with all the little things. Two suitcase racks in each room, real glasses, real plates at breakfast together with real cutlery. Three different coffees, pastries that taste like they are from a real bakery, strawberries and whipped dessert to top off the waffles. For motorcyclists there is a special parking spot complete with wash station. The staff are friendly and helpful. The manager was in full evidence talking to guests. It also has a good pool, hot tub and exercise room. Highly recommended if you are travelling on Vancouver Island and need a good place to say.

    « Deceptive booking policy - both Expedia and BW not helpful »

    Cancellation/ change policy NOT transparent. 2 night minimum stay NOT mentioned ANYWHERE on their website. BW refused to decrease booking from 2 to 1 night; Expedia didn't advocate. Expedia told me when I called that yes, I had called in the right time to have a FREE cancellation or change HOWEVER, the only change they COULD NOT DO is go down to 1 night, since BW has a 2 night minimum booking policy that is stated NOWHERE.. They simply said had I booked for 1 night only, then they would have known it was a 2 night minimum. However, having booked 2 night initially, i was NOT informed that I could change anything EXCEPT decrease to 1 night. With the amount of fine print you have to go throught, when something like a 2 night minimum in the summer months is not stated explicitly, it is frankly deceptive. And then when they refuse to do anyting about it.

    This is a hotel what other hotels should aspire to! On the outside it was clean and tidy, and the grounds were beautifully manicured. There was even a special parking spot for motorcycles...and a hose and bucket were provided for washing even! We noticed a water bowl for dogs at the entrance...'always nice to see caring touch like that. The staff are friendly and attentive, while being professional and efficient. Their breakfast service is the best I've ever seen at a Best Western hotel. Real china plates and metal cutlery are a classy touch, as well as being environmentally friendly.

    First of all we can't say enough about the friendly staff at this hotel, from check in to housekeeping, they all made us feel welcome and were very friendly and extremely helpful. We had the one bedroom suite with a sofa bed. It had a kitchen area which had basic kitchen supplies, dishwasher and fridge. We had our dog with us and this is a very pet friendly hotel. They supplied 2 dishes, dog blanket and treats for our dog. Very nice touch. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean, the A/C worked very well. There was a boil water advisory in Chemainus while we were there, we were informed right away by posting around the hotel and by a letter slipped under the door. Able to get extra water bottles for our use or for the dog. Buffet Breakfast was really good, lots of different choices and they have a waffle machine, my grandson loved making his waffles every morning. We would stay here again and I will be telling family and friends.

    « More than a five star hotel »

    This hotel is first rate and I would have given it a 10 if I could. We've travelled all over North America and I can honestly say I have never met such a happy, helpful and friendly bunch of people as the management and staff at the Best Western in Chemainus. Peter, the General Manager, and Shane, the Front Desk Manager, bent over backwards in order to accommodate us when we booked for one week and then wanted to extend our stay for over a month. This was no easy feat considering June is one of their busiest months, and we are very grateful to them. We've got to know most of the staff and we feel like we're staying with friends rather than in a hotel. The rooms are spacious, modern and very comfortable; the queen suites have a kitchenette and everything you need to prepare a meal if you don't feel like eating out. Their complementary breakfast is consistently the best we have had in any hotel, with a good selection of hot and cold items, and everything is very fresh. There is a good size swimming pool and hot tub plus an exercise room. The hotel is pet friendly, and there's a nice walk on a rail trail beside the golf course across the street, as well as a couple of parkettes right behind the hotel. The town of Chemainus is a five minute walk from the hotel. Chemainus is well known for its beautiful murals and also the Chemainus theatre which has some very good shows. The town doesn't have a great selection of restaurants for an evening meal, but a short drive up the highway will bring you to Ladysmith where I would recommend the Fox and Hounds Pub. Drive a little further and try the Crow and Gate, an authentic Sussex English pub with lovely gardens and outside tables. You can't beat the food and ambiance, but get there early because it's a very popular spot.

This property ranks high on my list and could easily be ranked alongside some of the highest raging properties. Don't let the brand fool you. I've been to this hotel many times and every visit I'm met with friendly professional staff, a clean environment and the comforts of home since the rooms have kitchenettes and all the amenities you need. All details are accounted for right up to the dog bones and embroidered towels set in the lobby for the little 4-legged friends that might accompany their owners. The hotel hosts everyone from sports teams to theatre goers (they have a theatre package) to couples to families and everyone is well looked after. Set in a charming community this is a super find and I highly recommend it to anyone. The best news is that it's easy on the budget offering what I would deem as good value for the money. Breakfast and parking are included and there are an indoor pool, laundry and plenty outdoor green space. Outstanding. I love coming here.

The swimming pool and hot tub were lovely and the breakfast buffet was excellent with a great selection of hot and cold fare. The other great thing is the location. It's just close enough to Chemainus to walk the distance without being in the hub. The association with the local theatre is great too, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

    We stayed at the Best Western as part of the Chemanius Theatre package. The rooms are lovely and comfortable. The free breakfast offers many choices. I appreciated the cut-up fruit choice. When I told the kitchen staff that the fruit was low, she quickly replenished it. Since we stayed Friday night, the breakfast room was full and we had to wait for an empty table. We had never stayed on a weekend before, and this may explain why the breakfast room which is quite large was busy.

    « Great place to stay »

    It's a great place to stay for business, or family with/without pets. The room was very bright and clean, and in a good size. We had two queen size bed with no kitchen and the room did not feel crowded even with three huge comfortable chairs, a chest drawer, a size table, and a night stand. The building did not have the smell of fresh paint nor the hundred-year-old-mould smell. Breakfast was delicious and wonderful. Many choices between scrambled eggs, bacons, harsh browns, waffles, toast, bagels, muffins, 3 different kinds of cereals, 3 different kinds of juice, great varieties of tea bags, coffee, yogurt... And more! All included in the price of the room! If you have a pet staying with you in the room, you don't have to worry about bringing your pet's bowls. They have two huge dog bowls and a blanket ready in the room and that is very thoughtful of them doing that. By the entrance is a small side table. The towels on the table beside the dog treats is brilliant! Wiping your dog after a walk in the wet weather before walking through the lobby into your room, to prevent muddy dog prints and muddy splash everywhere from the dog shaking off the mud or water. I love this place and will definitely go back the next time we are in the area!

    Nice hotel, good location, good breakfast! Arrived early morning but got the room straight away which was nice! Friendly staff and right off the highway but close to town as well which makes it all very accessible. Nice restaurant across the road too!

    Planned this weekend getaway last minute and was happy they were so absolutely accommodating to provide us a suite facing the water. Granted there were a few trees in the way but it was still a great view! Props to the Front Desk agent on the morning after check-in for helping find product for a bubble bath in the amazing bathtub in our room! It was definitely a relaxing stay and I appreciated the kindness of all staff throughout the weekend. I also appreciated that they were able to give us a late check-out so that we could go for a dip their salt-water pool prior to leaving.

    Best Westerns are always good........rarely have I had an unhappy experience at any BW. Always easy to find, modern and very well organized.......and often ideally located. Our experience with BW rewards program has also been especially beneficial.

    « Very good on all counts »

    This place was a lucky find. From the moment we arrived, we could see that this was no run-of-the-mill Best Western, it was special. We were warmly welcomed by the Manager (who is from Liverpool, U.K.) and given an upgrade which turned out to be a spacious suite. The place was quiet, very clean, and obviously well run. The breakfast was bountiful and there was coffee to go. The manager apologized to us because the pool was being serviced so wasn't available. Its not that often you find this much attention to detail.

    I am a local and am also a customer of this hotel. I use the pool and gym facilities on a daily basis and I stayed here the night of my bachelorette party. The front staff are amazing , always super helpful ! Hotel is spotless and our guest room with the balcony was beautiful. Great continental breakfast, who doesnt love bacon ?

    I have stayed here many times as it is quite, clean, and well appointed, nor many negative items unless you get here when a hockey tournament is on and party parents show up. Only happened once. Management is now enforcing unruly partyers and tossing them out.

    A good hotel except for the breakfast, the latter being your typical carb-fest. This hotel is by far the best available in that part of Vancouver Island, even AirBnB has scant options. The hotel is quiet and clean.

    Stayed at this hotel with our hockey club. The service was better than a lot of the five star hotels I stay at. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hot breakfast was fantastic when compared to other hotels offering a similar service. Of course we used the pool, hot tub and weight room; all of which were decent. We will definitely be returning to this hotel in the future.

    Bathroom: has a deep soaking tub, hair dryer, and four sets of towels which is greatly appreciated along with the soaps and shampoo and conditioner. Closet: two suitcase holders, ironing board, iron, hangers, safe, extra bedding. Bedroom, it is in its own enclosed area with pocket doors. Queen bed, four pillows, two night stands with lamps. With the location of the bed within its own room, this provides for a most welcome night's sleep as it is quieter and darker. There is a desk with chair, a chest with three drawers, a small table with two chairs, another three drawer chest, padded chair, fold out couch, coffee table, small fridge with three shelves and a small freezer within the fridge. The fridge does have a lot of room to accommodate the supplies we stored for the three days we were there. There is a two element counter top stove, Keurig coffee pot, there are all the necessities for cooking plus the dishes and cutlery required. There is also a microwave, toaster, kettle and dishwasher. A dishwasher tab is supplied along with an esso scrubbing pad and dish soap. There are two regular coffee pods and two decaf coffee pods for the Keurig machine. The suite has two televisions. There is one to watch in the living room area and one to watch hanging in the hall across from the bedroom. The hotel has an elevator. There is a well-equipped gym on the first floor. The swimming pool was down for repairs when we were there. There are two top loading washers ($2.00) and two dryers ($1.50). Laundry soap is available in the vending machine for purchase (1.50) and dryer sheets for (1.50). There is a large selection for breakfast so if you leave hungry, that would be the issue of the traveler and not the hotel or staff. This hotel is very clean and this is something I greatly appreciate from the outside of the hotel and right from when one walks in through the doors and to their room. The laundry room, gym, etc., are all clean. The wonderful ladies did an excellent job of taking care of our room. The staff are very polite and helpful which only added to the enjoyment of the hotel. The front line staff that welcomed and checked us in and greeted us daily were great. The hotel is quiet.

    We have stayed at this property 3 times now and always the same standards that we expect. The grounds and rooms are spotless because they have staff that know what they are doing when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. The pool and hot tub area is also a plus and we enjoy the fact that it is a mineral pool!

    We stayed in a pet friendly room and they sure do cater to the pets. When you enter the hotel lobby there are clean towels for paws, "bathroom" bags and cookies, then in the room is a bed, food bowls and treats:) Aside from the pet friendly aspect, after only 15 minutes or so of checking in they called the room to make sure it was up to our standard. They have great kitchenettes that cover all the bases and a free breakfast that is great!! Not to mention the staff, both front desk and cleaning were so friendly. This was our third time staying here and look forward to the next time!

    « Another Hockey Tournament In the Books »

    If you are travelling with a team or for a team event this hotel is fantastic as they cater to families. This is the second time staying at this property and this trip was much better in the fact that there was not a faulty heating system in our room and our room was quiet. Confirm your reservation before you go. When I had booked this property I specifically requested a corner suite like the one I had the year before. I even questioned the booking agent as the price seemed a little less than what I was expecting. I was assured our booked room was the same style suite as the previous year. Upon check in I found I was not in a corner suite as expected and an error had been made with our reservation. We were not able to change our room as the hotel was full. The room we had was great just not as big as the one the previous year. The hotel bed was very comfortable however the pullout couch needed a new mattress as you could feel the springs through the mattress (yes, I learned this the hard way by actually sleeping on it.) One of the best parts of our room is the full kitchen with dishwasher, cutlery, fridge, and stove. This is nice for families like us who travel a lot and just want to be able to make a sandwich for the kids or serve appetizers and wine with friends like we do. The kids loved the pool and I loved the equipment room which allowed me to dry hockey gear in another place other than our suite. Thank heavens for that! The staff also booked the dining area for our team to have a pizza party which the whole team loved. My only feedback would be to have more staff on in the morning when the mad breakfast rush is occurring. There were quite a few hungry kids waiting a long period of time for hot food items to be filled for the complimentary breakfast. It was a good 30 minutes before more eggs and sausages came out and for a hungry little hockey player that can be too long. I really do enjoy this hotel and the staff are really amazing at dealing with the volume of travellers. I would recommend this property all of my friends.

    « Great Place for Young Family »

    We have stayed here 4+ times since having kids (have 2 kids under 3) and all stays have been superb. Staff are very friendly to the kids and it's so convenient to have the 2br suite option with an actual kitchen to make food and keep snacks for the children. Breakfast gets repetitive but it's hard to beat the price (included with the room!) and the convenience of being able to eat right away when the kids wake up at 7am! They have a pool which the kids loved and made for a nice activity on rainy days. Certainly not a bustling town and not much in the way of "walkable" attractions nearby. There is a hotel just across the street that has a decent cafe/restaurant that does take-out so we'd often get lunch or dinner from there when we didn't want to cook in the room (there's no restaurant in the Best Western). There is also a little liquor store across the road which is handy when you just want to grab a cheap bottle of wine for the room. All-in-all a great place to stay as a "home base" when traveling with kids.

    « Great staff and amenities. Excellent value. Beautiful area. »

    The staff were as nice and welcoming as any I've come across. I've traveled a lot. The staff were dealing with a rather difficult and busy "hockey team" weekend but remained professional and patient. The kids were just being kids but I will never be able to understand why the parents and chaperones in these situations tend to be so rude to the staff and other guests. Nobody thinks they shouldn't be there but it would sure be nice if they were friendly, polite, helpful toward the staff. It would sure be nice if they ensured that their children behaved appropriately for the situation. E.G. Leave the hockey games at the rink. Don't bring them into the hallways of the hotel. Keep the kids in the rooms that you are renting. I don't want them playing outside my room door, thank very much! And good manners are taught. It is a parents job to teach basic consideration for others and good manners. (I'm hoping other parents will read this and teach their children well.) Other than that, I have nothing but good things to say about this Best Western in Chemanius and the staff. My room was well appointed and well laid out. Just lovely. Thank you.

    With our friends we booked two rooms as every year for the Christmas play at Chemainus Theatre. Suites were very clean and even the elevator looked and smelled clean - wow. Front desk staff were friendly, but the standout customer service was in the breakfast room - Jennie and Ashley were very busy, but met people with a smile and a "good morning." There was no lack of food or coffee in this bustling atmosphere. All in, a lovely experience (and a great play!) Way to go Best Western Chemainus.

    « ??????????????? »

    Seems to be a rare "hotel" in an area full of motel type accommodations. We chose this place on an recommendation of our local colleague and found it pretty good. You get everything you basically need on a trip at a reasonable price. I liked the size of the room, Keurig coffee maker, hot breakfast. No problem either with hotel staff or internet service. Swimming pool was rather small and L-shaped, but I appreciated there was one. Air conditioner was quite noisy so I had to stop it before going to bed. One downside was the non-existence of room services. If you fancy a drink, you will need to hop over to the pub/liquor shop across the road.

    It was as though we were the first in. Even the parking lot is clean? They offered us chocolate chip cookies on arrival. They were scrubbing the walls in other rooms and washing the pillows. Not just the cases....the pillows. And spacious! Our king suite was more than ample with very comfortable furnishings throughout. The check in was inviting and efficient. They offered us chocolate chip cookies for goodness sake. The view to the sea looked over a fueling/staging area, but what the hey, they did give us cookies when we arrived. Quiet, comfy, friendly and roomy...and did I mention the chocolate chip cookies? Very tasty.

    For our 34th wedding anniversary we booked tickets for the stage show "Grace and Glorie" at Chemainus Theatre. For accommodations we booked a room at the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn. We had stayed there a year ago (also for the theatre) and had been very pleased. For this trip it was even better as we were upgraded to a corner suite on the fourth floor. Everything was terrific. We used the pool and jaccuzzi and met some very nice folks down there. The breakfast was very nice as well. We would recommend this hotel to anyone !

    Was very impressed with this property. Went on points, and have become accustomed to some hotel chains providing the worst possible room when points are used (sometimes not even properly cleaned). This was not the case with this hotel. The suite we had was modern and comfortable. We had a separate bedroom and sitting area. Most impressive was how welcoming the property was to pets. They provided bowls, and a blanket for use at the property, and a number of treats for our puppy. She was thrilled and so were we. We were in the area to visit friends, and have never stayed before. If I were to visit again, I would definitely book here. The breakfast was well stocked and good. Especially appreciated their selection of teas in the breakfast area and the kettle in the room. Tea drinkers never like running water through a coffee maker. Overall, a nice property.

    We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel for one night,so we could catch the ferry back to the mainland in the morning. Chemainus is only about an hour from Victoria. Found a good price for this hotel through TripAdvisor. I do like staying at the Best Western and we did enjoy our stay at this hotel! ( It was build about 10 years ago so it's one of the newer ones) Check in was quick and staff was very friendly. Parking is available(free) at the front of the hotel. Rooms are a good size with nice decor. There was a small fridge, and a coffee maker. Lots of fluffy towels soaps and shampoo in the bathroom. The beds are comfortable ,a bit on the softer side which I prefer! Breakfast was good with a nice selection of items .What I expecially like was that they actually serve the breakfast till 10 o'clock! . Very nice place to stay! The charming little town of Chemainus is only about a 15 minute walk or about a a 3 minutes drive, from the hotel. But take note a lot of the stores close around 5:30.
