“Friendliest people and lovely place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2010

My daughter and I had a great experience at this hotel. We loved our room, which seemed to have the biggest balcony of all the units (lucky us). 2 queen beds with white bedding in a very clean room. From our room we could see cruise ships cruising home from Alaska. We happened to be there during a heatwave, but since our room was facing north, it remained nice and cool and a fan was in the room to keep the air moving. Don't expect air conditioning, because none is needed. We were prepared for any noise above us since the hotel's construction is wood. However, since it is a family friendly hotel, little kids food steps were soon quiet and we enjoyed a peaceful stay.
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. You felt you were part of a family. Continental breakfast was satisfactory. The Austrian look and feel with all the flower baskets makes the hotel quite attractive.
We spent the Saturday on Quadra Island, where we also met the most friendly people.
We had car trouble and found Campbell River folks most helpful in getting is mobile again.

Our hotel is a Best Western called Austrian Chalet and we are in what could be described as a Austrian Chalet maisonette. There is a living area downstairs and there is a balcony from which there are brilliant uninterrupted views are across the Strait, and where we have seen several cruise ships and large cargo vessels whizzing past. Our bedroom containing 2 queen beds is upstairs in a loft area which also has a gallery looking down onto the living area. The hotel has a pool, putting area and table tennis. And just along the road there is a marker indicating the crossing of the 50th Parallel.
The continental breakfast is provided in a small room overlooking the Strait and is ample fto keep us going for the rest of the day.
The hotel is ideally place to enable the north of the island to be explored. I would recommend the boardwalk built Telegraph Cove and the Port MacNeil where the museum was very interesting. The curator there was a brilliant person to talk to. This was also an ideal location to act as a base for exploring the Strathcona National Park. We tried to go to a place called Zeballos but found the road too gravelly and unsuitable for our car.
The is an inn next door but this is not suitable for children under 19, there is also a restaurant but the was closed by 9pm.

Stayed at this property for two nights on a sightseeing trip to Campbell River. Choose this property for its amenities and proximity to the ocean. Stayed in a standard room on the bottom floor with an ocean view. The room was very comfortable which included a separate sitting area off the bedroom where the room entrance is located. The only criticism I had is that the room could do with a little work as the baseboards were marked up, face plates on light switches looked as if they needed replacing and the shears hung a little low off the window, the furnishings were comfortable although a little dated. Even with these minor notes we really enjoyed our stay at this property and would recommend it to others. The pool was spotless and the hot tub was very warm with many strong jets, did not use the gym although it looked like it has lots of nice equipment. The breakfast in the morning was nice, the breakfast room has a nice view of the ocean and was very well maintained and all products stocked. The front desk agents were extremely helpful and friendly. I believe that is is one of the best places to stay in Campbell River due to its great location, comfortable rooms and its array of amenities all at a reasonable rate!

Nice hotel. Stayed just one night for a business trip. Kelly on the front desk saved the day for me as I had missing page of a document I need to print out. She was happy to help me out and refused payment. Thank you so much Kelly.

The room was nice, and they had a nice setup for breakfast in the morning. Next time I will try out the pool. Great hotel, I recommend it and hope to stay there again.

Hi,

We were supposr to go at a hotel near the Marina but after seing the surronding we decided to go back on the road (where we came from) and try this hotel. It was worth it. Our hotel room was on a split level and very nice. I wish we could have stayed longer.

This place really needs to be updated, it's starting to look tired. The stairs are pretty steep, and the loft where the bed is located to sleep, is extremely hot in the summer time. The small fan was not able to move the air fast enough. The bed was comfy and the place was clean, even though I have a feeling it could use a good scrubbing. The hall way carpets need to be replaced. Having said all of that, the kids loved this place...and keep bugging me to stay there again....( I just can't figure it out)

Located on the outskirts of town so fairly quiet. Complimentary breakfast quite good especially as they have a breakfast room instead of using a corner of the lobby!!
Has a swimming pool, exercise room, table tennis and a "small" outside crazy golf course which all helps to entertain 2 young kids.
Slightly more expensive than the Travelodge down the road.
