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.

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. The living room was actually smaller than the living rooms in the one bedroom suites. Additionally, the A/C units are a bit noisy, and there is very little closet or dresser space in this room. The service and breakfast at this hotel however, was very good.

Booked on line from Toronto, turned out to be a great stay! So nice we went back the following weekend. Was house hunting in the area, the staff provided a lot of information on the area, and even remembered us from the weekend before at check-in. Clean, quiet, and the breakfast was well maintained and offered a great variety of foods. Beds were really comfortable.

We`ve been doing this for a few years now - Check in around 4pm, a glass of wine while we dress. Head down the street at 6pm for a lovely buffet dinner at the Chemainus Theatre - then watch a delightful play. Return to the room around 10. Breakfast is included in the morning. Perfect. I can`t help but notice that there are MANY couples - often older couples doing the same thing. Enjoy!

I stayed at the Best Western in Chemainus as it was in good proximity to my corporate client. I have stayed at other Best Western properties in Canada and the US. I am not sure this qualifies as a Best Western "Plus" The service checking in was however excellent.

The Chemainus Inn is a beautifully kept hotel. Well maintained, impeccably clean, very welcoming an a fabulous complimentary breakfast. Best hotel on Vancouver Island. Plaques in their lobby indicate they have won many awards from Best Western and others.

check in was easy and quick, time for a quick dip in the pool, my husband went to the weight-room, long hot shower, then off to a buffet dinner and watch a play. Next day we got up late, had a hot breakfast and just wandered around town looking at the murals, dropped in to two galleries and a coffee shop, had a spicy African themed late lunch at Odka, then home Oh did I forget to mention, we live in Chemainus and were given the hotel/theatre package as an anniversary gift.

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.

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 qual...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Chemainus at the Best Western, and while we only visited for one night the large room and full kitchen would be ideal for a longer getaway. We experienced a fantastic night and performance at the Chemainus Theatre after checking in. The room itself was spotless, beds comfortable and the breakfast was very good, with a great selection for many tastes. The morning after checking out was spent walking around town and getting a head start on our Christm... Read more

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 sho... Read more

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 t... Read more

Check in was efficient and friendly. Offered free upgrade for platinum status. Ongoing promotion of $10 gift card per night of stay is great. Apparently there was a salt water pool and hot tub. Too bad I got there too late, would have loved to try that out. Room did not disappoint. Spacious with complimentary kitchenette and water bottles. Was given a queen suite with balcony on top floor. Nice view of golf course. Thank you for the gift! Made my business trip to Ladysmith/Chemainus much better.... Read more

The plan was fabulous the dinner superb and the room outstanding. Two TV's one for the bedroom and one for the Living Room. The Room had a full size kitchen/chesterfield that made into a bed/desk/tables/comfy chairs and two dining room chairs for the table and a desk table. Good Drapes/good carpet and a very clean bathroom with the usual white towels.

I have not been to Chemainus since approx 1995. I went yesterday with a group of ladies from our home in Port Hardy. It was so nice to be back! The hotel was so clean and welcoming. They also made it very easy for our group to check in and get to our rooms. The rooms were spacious and clean - so like home. The little treat of chocolate mints on the pillows were a special touch. I would definitely return to this hotel and recommend it to others.

Early check in (from Victoria) was not a problem, room was even larger than we remembered with a large covered balcony, separate bedroom and two large closets. Staff are always super friendly, handing out either cookies or dog biscuits (you chose) Swimming pool is now salt water based so no chlorine smell. Morning Buffet was even more extensive than last year with something for every appetite. We'll be back!
