Town Centre Hotel
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Powell River
Reviewed 10 May 2012

The room had a lovely view of the parking lot. If the window was opened, the smell of exhaust would gush in. It was semi clean but smelled musty. The location, in the middle of a strip mall, is unappealing if you have come to experience the natural beauty of the area. There isn't a lot of choice of accomadation in Powell River, but almost anywhere would be better than this overpriced place. $145! Good Lord.

Room Tip: Avoid the view of the parking lot. The courtyard view is marginally better.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. Powell River is a lovely coastal community, but few hotels are fortunate enough to have oceanside locations. The Town Centre Hotel was situated so that it is convenient for shopping, business, transit, and recreational ameneties.

The rooms facing our garden courtyard are most popular with our guests, but many people find the rooms facing the parking lot and street to be very quiet due to light traffic on the roads. This August we will be creating 12 entirely refurbished Executive Class room, which you may find more suitable to your needs. They will be ready for occupancy in September, 2012

We hope you will give our hotel another opportunity to serve you. Please feel free to contact us about our facilities, and ways to ensure the best possible room rates.

I booked the room while en route to the hotel via the ferry from Comox. Although poor cell phone reception made it difficult for her to hear me, the woman at the front desk was very patient and provided excellent service as did all the staff during our one-night stay. Even though it was a weekday during the off-season, they even arranged for the free shuttle service to pick us up on short notice. I opted for the deluxe room because I wanted the in-suite "jet tub". The room was spacious, comfy and clean with a fabulous kingsize bed. We appreciated the amenities like bathrobes and mini fridge, however, a microwave would've been nice. Overall it seemed well worth the extra $20 compared to a regular room. We enjoyed the included continential breakfast in the bright and airy dining room facing the courtyard. Upon check-out the staff even let us store some of our luggage at the front desk for a few hours as we weren't leaving town until later in the day.

Our first day found us in a room that felt very stuffy and smelled a bit musty. They changed us to another room the next day, which was much better; however, the furnishings to the rooms still need to be updated. The rooms met our needs but were a bit small and cramped to what I am used to. The front desk service was alright but only to the point that it was service. Eat at the restaurant. Very good food and great weekly specials.

Well, reasonable hotel. Stayed there for one night. Clean and nice chamber. The hotel is in a good location for Powell River and conveniently located for the town.

Room needs a really good scrubbing...specially the bathroom and the floors in the room. Beds are comfortable with clean sheets, but don't take your shoes off!
Hotel looks great from the outside, good parking, fantastic front desk lady, fantastic restaurant, service from both these ladies was incredible! The restaurant could use some background music, it was dead quiet in there.
We literally almost had the hotel to ourselves, 95% of the rooms were stripped down to nothing, so it really surprised me that our room was so dirty...with hardly any rooms to clean you would think they would do a fantastic job cleaning this one. Also with almost nobody in the hotel, I was surprised that they gave us a room that faced some sort of a large electrical box next to the closed hot tub. Not a nice view of the courtyard. The lounge/bar was also closed.

Because of a choir festival, most hotels and b&bs I called were full or did not have a king size bed, so this was my choice in spite of the terrible reviews I read on this site. Luckily, my experience was much better then the previous travelers. I love the location of this hotel. It is in the only decent shopping plaza in town and close by to everything else like the beach, ferries, music halls, and restaurant, etc. The room I was given was clean and decent size. The bathroom was clean and in good condition. Water pressure was good, and the hot water was hot enough. The restaurant has reasonable food and the waitress was excellent. Front desk personnel and housekeeping staff were all very courteous and helpful. It is a decent hotel with quality similar to other good 3-star hotels.
