“Beautiful setting worth the price”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

This is an amazing hotel to go to. The view from the bedrooms is amazing. They have a hotel dog, so if you have children or if you like pets it's great. The staff are very friendly and the amenities are great! Must try the fish at the restaurant - everything we have tried is amazing.

We love to stay at the Best Western Chocolate Lake as we can bring our dog and we can use the fitness centre. My husband enjoys the breakfast very much as he is a big eater! We like the location and the service!

Best Western Chocolate Lake is a very nice hotel. Nice view of the lake. Very clean. Staff very friendly. I wasn't aware of the dog in the lobby. But he is very friendly also. Close to Bayers Lake shopping and Exhibition Park. Not that far from downtown. Quiet area of town. Had a great time. Kids loved the pool and hot tub.

We stayed 3 nights for a November shopping trip. The rates were great and included hot buffet breakfast each morning. Close to city shopping & easy access to Bayer's Lake shopping district. Clean rooms, great bed and free parking all helped to make for a great stay.

Overall a very good experience. Our lake view room was clean and welcoming. The bed linens and pillows were extremely comfortable. The room was in very good condition. One detail, the top of the wardrobe was a bit dusty, but you would only notice if you are over 6 feet tall. Breakfast was okay, the restaurant very nice, however it was quite busy, they were out of silver ware, and the selection was limited and picked over. The kitchen staff was replenishing items as we finished up. Yogurt or an alternative to sausage would be nice.To sum up certainly worth the trip, will stay there again.

Dear VolleyDad,

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your great comments! I'll pass along your comments to the restaurant regarding alternative meats. They do alternate types from day to day, but there is only 1 choice of meat per day. That is certainly something we can look into!

Come see us again soon!

We were pleasantly surprised at the great location, friendly staff and overall atmosphere of this hotel. Its not beside a busy highway so its quiet and suburban feeling. Our only complaint was with the in-room coffee, Seattle's Best, which is not great at all. The Development of Quiet Floors in all hotels is a wish for us as travelers with no children and looking for peace and quiet in the evening and early morning.

Dear Lynn L,

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We also love that we are in a quiet location in the heart of the city, it is so nice to relax by the lake after a busy day! Although we do not currently have designated quiet floors, it is something I'll bring to the attention of our management team for us to review.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon!
