We have stayed in the Best Western in Chemainus every time we visit the area, (twice a year). We find everything to be above what we would expect. I love the white sheets and duet cover. The staff are always going out of their way for you. The breakfast is amazing with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, yogourt, fresh fruit, make your own fresh waffles (not the type you have to toast), muffins, toast.....
When we stay here we always get the suite as there is lots of room for entertaining. The balcony is nice so any guests that want to smoke and step outside. When the leaves are not on the trees some of the balconies have a good view of the ocean.
Location is only a short walk to town and it is only 2 minutes off the highway. Chemainus is know for their murals and the dinner theater.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a small water view and a balcony.

5 minutes off the hwyway puts you in Chemainus which is worth the drive. This is the second
time I have stayed here and have found the staff very friendly, the check in and out very smooth. They have a good excercise room along with indoor pool and hot tub. The morning
breakfast is one of the best I have had. If staying for a few days there suites give you lots
of room with seperate bedroom. Whenever up Island will I book here.

We three (our dog) checked in yesterday afternoon. We have not stayed at this hotel for two years and we think it was even better than our last visit. We drove from Victoria and if you stop at Cowichan and pick up cheese from Hillary's Cheese and carrot & raisin cookies from the organic bakery, on the way, you will apprciating the fridge and the mini kitchen. We appreciated that one of hte cupboard doors was sealed with a paper tape - that way we knew the dishes would be clean. The whole hotel seemed very clean and well kept. When we arrived the maintenance man was carefully painting the ceiling in the lobby. Everyone was friendly and we had a quiet night after the theatre which is only a 1 - 2 minute drive away. We appreciated that the staff make special effort to clean - even the remote had been sanitized. We appreciated the improvement in the breakfast..this time we also had a selection of fresh fruit and scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages. The only tiny negative was the coffee...it was a bit washed out (Seattle's Best)..there are some great organic coffee companies on the island but perhaps they do not service the hotels. A local and stronger coffee would have been appreciated...but THANK YOU..>we enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I stayed her in Feruary 2012 while attending the Chemainus Theatre Festival. This is a great hotel for a community of this size. The front desk staff were very friendly and caring. We were offered a room upgrade at no extra cost to a suite with a kitchenette. We only took advantage of the fridge for beer and wine, but if we were staying longer would make full use of it. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept on in a long time. The staff even found a thinner pillow for me. The complimetary breakfast is very good and well beyond the sticky bun and coffee type offered by many hotels. Eggs, waffles, sausage, bacon, etc. The gym is a little surprise because it is very well-equipped and also offers a pool and hot tub. Well located, just a little out of the "downtown" area, but an easy walk and very short drive. The hotel was quite full the 2 nights that we stayed and yet, we never heard a sound when we were in our room. The rooms were spotlessly clean.

Try coupling this with a night at the Chemainus Theatre Festival and dinner at Odika Cafe. You will leave very pleased after both.

Room Tip: there are rooms offered with balconies which might be very nice in the summer.

Dear Guest,
Thank you so much for your positive feedback and comments about our hotel. As you saw almost all our rooms are suites, and yes we do have a full gym as well as hot tub and a salt water pool. I'm glad you enjoyed the live theatre performance and hope you took home the season brochure. We look forward to booking you many more packages in the future and welcoming you back to Chemainus.

I stay at this hotel if I am in the area - free internet - the most fabulous rooms - beds are excellent - complimentary breakfast from early!!
Also if you are late arriving they have a food vending machine - not that I am a fan of Campbells soup but if nothing is open it sure beats chocolate!!

No restuarant at the hotel -there is a bar across the road that serves bar type food.
