We were upgraded to a corner suite with all the modern amenities. Breakfast had quite a variety of items. Loved the cedar smell of during our morning walk. The town is within walking distance. For theatre buffs there are 4 shows remaining. FOOTLOOSE is coming in June 10. I believe there are packages available so check it out.

The Best Western Plus on Chemainus turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. The room was one of the nicest hotel rooms we have stayed at in a long time. We loved the feel of it, as it was broken into separate rooms, so it felt like a real home. I could stay there for a few months! 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 di... Read more

When I complimented the young staff member what a great breakfast on our second morning statement was "The last thing about the hotel stay guests remember is the breakfast: How true although there were no other complaints either. We were there for my husbands funeral, not exactly the most fun thing but the staff made us feel so welcome and the breakfast rates as one of the best we have had.

We were upgraded to a King Suite as we are loyal Best Western guests. The room felt very much like a modern one-bedroom apartment, with all the amenities. The breakfast was the best we've ever had at a Best Western Hotel - or any other similar-sized chain hotel. Bravo to the management for thinking outside the box for the breakfast wrap and the freshness of the offerings!

There is nothing better to hear when you are checking into a hotel than you have been upgraded. We were pleasantly surprised, travelling with my sister, it was a great end to a nice day. This hotel staff work together to make everything really nice. The checkin was smooth, the breakfast was delicious, well presented and offered a lot of variety. Checkout was smooth, no challenges. I would have stayed two nights, but only planned for one.

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 Best Western, is close to all the things, you might want to do in Chemainus. Walk to the golf course; walk to 1892 pub; walk to live a theatre production. The staff are lively, and engaged. the breakfast buffet is over the top: what a selection. And the rooms: they are large; furnished very well; all the "trappings" of home- you will love the sleeping accommodations.

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.

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.
