“Not to be confused with a Best Western Plus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Nice spacious room. Quiet hotel. Friendly and helpful staff as we had questions on where to get a good dinner. The rooms are not as up to date as some of the newer Best Westerns but the beds were updated and great! Our room was immaculate. Breakfast not included at this hotel but was not a big deal to us. The only thing I could say is that I wish all the BW would service better coffee. The coffee at all of them has no taste and is weak. We would stay here again.

We decided to book a room here after looking on BringFido.com for hotels that allowed dogs in Golden. For an extra $20 we booked a room with two queen beds and a hide a bed so the kids wouldn't fight over sharing. When we arrived we discovered that there was some kind of mix up and they had given our room away. They ended up giving us the same room on a different floor even though they try to keep the pet rooms to the main floor. The room was huge! The inclusion of a continental breakfast would be a huge draw. The pool was nice and warm. The only issue I had was that we were next to the stairs and it was a bit noisy when the work crews that were staying there came down the stairs in their heavy work boots.

Stayed one night in the Golden BW and overall we had a great experience. We had a odd number room so we had a view of the mountains and ski runs. The even rooms would have a view of another hotel. The BW is 1/2 block off the service road and we heard no traffic from the busy HWY 1. Breakfast was not a included in the stay but they did have a small cafe on site which made great fresh food. Staff were very pleasant to deal with and they allowed us to get into the pool early so we could have a swim before checking out. Pet friendly rooms.
Will stay again!

Room Tip: Odd number rooms to get mountain view. Even rooms have view of another hotel.

We had to stop in Golden, BC on our trip through BC and did not a reservation at a hotel in town. We stopped at the Best Western because it was 1 block off the highway, it looked presentable and the Best Western chain has a good reputation. They had room for us and made sure that we were away from the elevators. The room was huge, the bathroom was huge, the bed was comfy and it was really quiet! What a great deal for such a modest price.
The next morning, we had breakfast in the cafe and we were amazed. No meager buffet with tired food. It was a full breakfast menu made from real ingredients by a server/cook who cared about what you wanted to eat! They have real eggs - not Egg Beaters, real has browns - not the frozen ones! What a delight! I will definitley stay here the next time I am in Golden, BC.

The Best Western and the Prestige Hotels in Golden belongs to the same chain, they are located one besides the other and they share some services like the the online reservation system.

However, they are totally different, being the Prestige the upscale version. Be carefull, because you will end paying $150+ for a room at the Best Western which is much lower in quality than a regular Motor-in.

This Best Western in Golden is all different than the others I know: This one is Noisy, old matrixes, smelly pillows, super loud toilets that you can here all night long from any room on the floor, etc, etc. Very bad exeperience.

Room Tip: Instead book a room at the Prestige Hotel.

Also a disappointment is the bed covering that seems to be the new BW standard. Your choice is a overly-warm comforter, or just a sheet. Could I just have a blanket please?

If you dislike the smell of smoke, beware. Many of the rooms were formerly smoking rooms, and have not been properly converted, as other guests found out. I paid extra to stay in a (very large!) "family" room that had never been a smoking room.

Disappointed at no hot tub. Just a pool. Come on hotels! This is one of the things that (to me at least) separates a hotel from just a motel. A hot tub after long hours on the road is something I eagerly anticipate.

On the plus side, all the usuals that you would expect are in place - clean, quiet, very comfortable bed. Once my room cooled down to a reasonable temperature I slept great. Despite the hotel being right by the highway, I heard no road noise. Wi-fi signal was good, and the speed was excellent for a hotel connection.

In short, remarkably average. I'm not sure it's worth the price they charge, but since it's in a resort area it's to be expected.

This is pretty much your typical Best Western inn. Things I liked were:

1.Location. It is half a block South of the Trans-Canada highway, behind the slightly more upscale Prestige Inn. I heard no traffic noise from the semis on the Trans-Canada.

2.Room size: Above average, I'd say about 30% bigger than your normal Best Western room.

One nitpick: The hotel provides the bane of the 2 and 3-star accommodations -- the shrink-wrapped disposable cup. Not even the see-through plastic kind, but the waxed cardboard kind. How can you enjoy a cup of coffee, much less a glass of wine from one of those cups?

I thought the price pretty steep -- after a supposed AAA discount I still paid $314 for a single room for two nights, with no breakfast. But I guess if they can charge that much, I don't blame them.

Room Tip: The even-numbered rooms face the parking lot and the Prestige Inn, from the odd-numbered ones you ca...

Feedback from our guests is always appreciated and we are glad you had an enjoyable stay. I apologize that you did not care for the shrink wrap disposable cups. As we do not have a professional grade sanitizing dishwasher on site, we choose to take Best Western International’s suggestion in using the shrink wrapped cups. These ensure our guests of sanitary cupware. We hope you will appreciate our dedication to our guest’s safety and comfort.
