Best Western Austrian Chalet
Ranked #5 of 16 Hotels in Campbell River
Reviewed September 27, 2009

We stayed here for three nights all in all. It is a nice littele hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. It offers minigolf, a pool and a sauna which can be very important when you think of the weather of Vancouver Island. The rooms of the Best Western are spacious and offer a good view on the ocean. The hotel is a little further away from town, but there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel if you don´t have a car. Next to the hotel are a pub and a restaurant, both with good food.

We only sat on our jackets on that old and shabby couch. The hallway was extremely dirty and the room smell sour. Dust all over. We didn't take a shower in this "hotel", it was just not clean enough. The water in the indoor pool was cloudy, didn't use that. Housekeeping should do much much much better. Renovations wouldn't hurt at all!!!!

This hotel feels very dated.
Check-in/out is efficient but check the bill ... my rate didn't match that on my reservation!
The rooms could do with an update. We had a room with an upstairs bedroom and downstairs living room and bathroom. The staircase was a steep climb so you need to switch lights on at night. The walls are paper-thin and you can easily hear everything from the next-door room.
The restaurant is separate and franchised. We had an excellent and reasonably priced meal. However at best you have a view of the car park which is a pity as the hotel has a really nice view out to sea – it should really capitalize on this so far as the restaurant is concerned.
Breakfast is a very modest affair with paper cups and plates and poor quality food. I would probably have not bothered if I had known and gone into Campbell River to find something.
Free WiFi is appeciated.
There is a nice swimming pool but the changing rooms are a disgrace – the shower only just about works, there’s nowhere to hang clothes and limited space to change.

Unless you specifically want to see the ocean, ask for a "quiet" room, With the highway in between hotel and ocean, good views come with highway noise. The pub atmosphere is congenial and inviting.

Nice place. Clean rooms. Close to town (the hotel is south of Campbell River). Adequate breakfast (cereal, toast, bagels, fruit juice, eggs). Good value for the price.

While we didn't go inside, the hotel has a large indoor swimming pool and a workout room. The hotel also had a laundry facility.

Wireless Internet access was included in the price of the room.

Typical Best Western. Not a great room but clean and comfortable. Nice view of the water. Breakfast not great but OK.. It's a bit of a drive into the town but not too bad. There is a hiking path along the water right in front of the property.
