Best Western Westbank was easy to access using GPS from the city. Do watch those merge lanes, though! My room was fine - clean, refreshed daily, fridge, microwave, coffee maker , hairdryer all fine. THe weather was unseasonable cold so I did not get to use the courtyard pool, but it looks nice. CVS pharmacy right next door, lots of restaurants and other stores (Hobby Lobby!) (I know, but it’s a big thing for Canadian crafters) nearby. Desk staff were pleasant and helpful. In my friend’s room, the heating/air conditioning unit made a huge noise in the middle of the night and quit. It was replaced while we were out the next day. Then my unit was non-functional (maybe these things are not used to operating in heat mode?), and not addressed tho I was promised 3 times that the Maintenance fellow was coming, so I was offered another room. The second groom was newly renovated, with vinyl plank floors rather than carpet, nicely tiled shower enclosure, upgraded furniture. The evening maintenance man is incredibly pleasant, attentive and helpful (as opposed to the non-existent daytime guy) and actually helped me move my things. Would I stay here again? Yes.
The hotel itself was nice-clean room-nice area. When we tried to check in with our group(we had reservations and confirmation #s)some of our group were told they didn't have any more rooms.
some were told their room was given to someone else. Check in staff was not helpful at all and at times was rude to some of us.
