I just concluded a 3 week stay at the Best Western Westerly in Courtenay.
The hotel is right across the street from a small mall with large grocery store that is open 7 days a week (07:00 to 22:00) along with a liquor store and a well known coffee chain. Having those stores so close was super convenient during Covid times when trying to avoid indoor eating in restaurants.
My room was in the newer building on the top floor facing the restaurant. The room was nice in mostly beige/brown tones and was very clean.
My room was adjacent to the stairwell, and I noticed every time the stairway door was slammed by someone, the wall by my bed headboard would shake. Perhaps they could put one of those slow close things on the door or adjust the one that was there.
There is no safe in the room.
There is a small microwave, mini fridge and real kettle, which I find is quite rare to see.
The internet was very good and I really liked that I stayed logged in for my entire 3 week stay. The TV was excellent it was very easy to hookup my streaming box to the TV.
The bed was very comfortable and not withstanding the door to the stairway noise, the rooms seemed very well insulated (room to room). I never heard any adjacent rooms at all. The door to the hall had a few gaps that probably could be improved upon.
When I first arrived, I saw the sign in my room saying something about getting 500pts per night for declining housekeeping services, so I decided to do that. About 1 week into my stay I asked front desk staff if I would get bonus points for declining housekeeping and they confirmed......however, when I checked out, I asked once again, but the person told me that during Covid no bonus points would be provided, however she said she would still bring it up with management.
When I stayed at Old House Hotel & Spa in June, they did have housekeeping on a reduced basis, so I figured if I declined housekeeping for 3 weeks, that would be worth something for their green program. I'll monitor my account to see if they give anything. less
