Our room was horribly over priced, lacked air conditioning (but we were told there was some) though we were provided 2 fans for our two-room suite to push hot air around (there during record breaking heat). Our choice was either watch tv or have the fans. Had to constantly shut the doors that brought in any air because of smokers... More

We typically stay at Best Westerns so we were excited to discover one on the Campbell River. Walking into the room, however, it felt aged and cramped, even though it was a loft. Like some other reviews have pointed out, the walls are thin, and the balconies are necessary for the fresh breeze off of the river. Unfortunately, the gentleman... More

This is a decent hotel for the price. Staff is friendly and the breakfast varies from day to day. The location is central and the view from our balcony was awesome. Overall our stay here was a very good experience. The only drawback it can be a little difficult to exit the property during peak traffic time.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us! I am glad that you enjoyed our rotating breakfast menu. We do that so the guest doesn't get bored with the same set up every day. The highway can be a bit busy at certain times of day, but we are lucky that it quiets down in the evening to allow our... More

We were competing in a sporting event while in town and found this hotel very pleasant to stay in. It is an older facility but very friendly staff and the overall experience would make me consider staying here again.

The Best Western at Campbell River is a nice motel with an enjoyable breakfast experience. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It has a small golf putting course and ping pong table as well as a swimming pool and hot tub' It also has an exercise room.

A decent hotel win a decent price. The view of the water is great to watch the morning sunrise. Breakfast could be better though. Very few vegan options - just fruit and processed oatmeal. The staff is very helpful and were nice enough to upgrade us to the Eagle Room! Beds were comfortable. Overall a pretty good hotel, nothing too... More

We stayed here for one night in June 2014. We had a loft room which was south facing and was incredibly warm. The window to the rear of the loft bedroom had no view from it (in fact the window was onto the corridor!) Despite having two floors to the room it still felt small somehow! We had a really... More

On behalf of the team here at the Best Western Plus Austrian Chalet, I would like to sincerely apologize for what you experienced. I have addressed the housekeeping staff and reminded them about checking ice buckets during room checks. Originally, our Alpine building was an exterior entrance building. The reason why your bedroom has a view of the corridor is... More

We were delighted with the quality of this hotel, especially for the price. We were offered an upgrade to a room with a lovely view (because we're members of their priority club). The indoor heated pool and the hot tub were very refreshing, the beds and pillows were really comfortable, the kitchenette was well-stocked, and the hot breakfast was delicious!... More

The loft room is spacious for the price but as couldn't figure out the temperature control the sleeping area in the loft remained too warm. I should have asked for help with it. A guest in the next room smoked on the balcony which was unpleasant. Should have complained but didn't want to. Otherwise a very pleasant two night stay.... More
