“Quick Trip from the US”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

The Best Western Chelsea in Coquitlam was easy to find and in a convenient location. The hotel is laid out well.

Our room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. When we arrived, the air conditioner didn't seem to be working and it was taken care of very quickly. We enjoyed the continental breakfast in the morning.

We were hungry for a late evening snack, so I asked where the nearest grocery store was - I was told to turn left on Brunette and go 2-3 blocks. I went 2-3 miles each way and found nothing. Perhaps listing grocery stores in the hotel directory might help in the future? We wanted something from the vending machine and I sent my son, with a $2 bill, to the front desk - he came back and told me he was told they had no change. I thought this was a little odd - maybe getting a change machine in the hotel would help?

All in all, it was an okay stay

We stayed there because it was close to ikea. The staff were friendly and i was even allowed in the room early as i had arrived before i had thought i would. The room was clean - the hallway carpet could use a good cleaning - but the bed was very comfy and did not notice any noise even though close to the road. We took the sky train to science centre and the hotel is very close, just a quick walk down the road. We missed the breakfast as we slept in, so maybe it could be offered a little longer (it is offered to 9:30 am, maybe 10:30) for those of us who sleep in during vacation.

Very helpful staff, good location.
Rooms are a bit older, but renovations are in progress. Breakfast is pretty standard, although less options compared to a BW Plus.(I can't tell if this is one or not, the sign says plus, but some websites say different, and it would seem that it's not) Some decent nearby restaurants.

We stayed at the Chelsea Inn for our second time the weekend of July 5/6. This time our experience was equally positive. Easy and friendly check-in with our room ready early; we were upgraded to what I believe is the best room in the hotel - the corner Jacuzzi room on the top floor! Loved the room - very clean, large, with a balcony! Bed was super comfy; linen seemed brand new. We used the Jacuzzi and it was a treat. I believe they're busy upgrading the hallway carpets, but the carpets in the room seem new, very clean.

We knew the room may be noisy given that the hotel is just off Highway 1 and this particular room faced the highway, however with the balcony door closed and using the faint white noise (iPhone app) we slept like babies - so much so that we slept in and chose not to go down for the breakfast, so cannot comment on that:-). We enjoyed our stay and will recommend to anyone that understands that this is not the Hilton, but a comfortable, clean and friendly 'neighborhood' hotel that offers great value for money (and due to location has easy access to many pubs/restaurants, the Hard Rock Casino, IKEA, etc etc.). We will be back.

Quick and painless check-in and check-out, very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable and clean room, excellent continental breakfast. On our way to the US Border, my daughter realized she'd left her cell phone plugged in, in the "breakfast room". After a quick phone call to the Front Desk to confirm it was still there the staff kindly kept it safe until our return later in the day. :)

It's not as big as some Best Westerns I've stayed at but the service and staff were just as friendly and helpful. There is no restaurant there but there are many within walking distance . They serve a good breakfast of make -your -own waffle ,eggs, cereal 'yogurt toast, bagels, pastries plus juices coffee &tea. All kept well looked after by staff. The hotel is doing some updating : new windows and flooring. Bus stop in front of hotel and the Skytrain is 10minutes away. Wheelchair accessible.

Room Tip: If staying for a long period ask for a kitchenette. They are small but useable.

We found this hotel to be good value for the price paid. We travelled as a group of 3 adults and 1 toddler and stayed here for 3 nights. The staff was very courteous/helpful. All hotel amenities were very good. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. Our room faced away from the highway and there were no noise issues at night (and so we can't comment on how the noise would have been, if any, if we had faced the highway). All in all, we had a pleasant stay without any issues at all.
