Fantastic staff makes this older property a plus in my book!

Driving from Calgary to Coquitlam is stunning. The beauty of Banff National Park leaves one breathless at every turn. After an 11 hour drive in a U-Haul truck our 2 bedroom suite was a welcome change. This Best Western is in southwest Coquitlam a stones throw from Burnaby. It is central to both the Trans Canada highway and Lougheed highway. The small kitchen and one bathroom in our suite have been upgraded with new cabinets, floor tile, counter tops and plumbing fixtures sometime in the last five years. The rest of the unit seems to be older. This is a popular hotel with travelers and business people and these facilities are well used. Our unit at the back of the hotel and in a separate building was relatively quiet, however; walking in the unit located above ours was easily heard.
Upon arrival we found the room clean with sufficient supplies. There are wide screen TVs in 3 rooms with a multitude of stations. All TSN and SN local Canadian and American channels, news channels, kids channels. There is a safe in the room. JOEY Coquitlam is an excellent restaurant that may be walked to from the back of the hotel and up a small driveway and road. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant. Additional Korean and Chinese restaurants are within 100 metres of the hotel as is a liquor store.
The cleaning staff and front staff were all pleasant, and very obliging when we had requests.
The hotel has a pool, exercise room, steam room, sauna and bar lounge. Sadly we did not use any of these amenities. There is plenty of parking.
I recommend this hotel. less

Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding your recent stay at the Best Western Plus Coquitlam Inn. I am glad hear that our Hotel was a comfortable and convenient resting place for you after your long drive from Calgary and that our two bedroom apartment suite met your needs.
It's great that you had the opportunity to experience the surrounding restaurants as well, there are indeed many to choose from!
Thank you again and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Hotel in the future.
