My only concern was the lack of plates,had to wait for a plate and when they brought them they were still wet and when I picked up mine the bottom was still dirty. I checked about 6 in the stack and all were dirty on the bottom meaning that bottom was touching the top of the plate underneath.They did apologize and bring other ones but they were also wet but properly cleaned. A few times over a course of an hour people were awaiting plates to be brought out. Read less

I've stayed here many times over the years. The staff have always been solid and helpful. Sadly, the rooms are passed their best and the complimentary breakfast so awful I thought I might need therapy. I've stayed at other Discovery hotels and they were good. This place let's the side down.

The stir-fry was perfect....absolutely delicious!! Highly recommend! The breakfasts I found were just ok. Nothing great and for allergies a bit limited. If you're staying at the hotel you will get 15% off your entree which is always an awesome thing. The staff at all meals were great, and very friendly. I'd eat here again when I come to Campbell River again. Read less

Stopped by for happy hour. Quiet, limited selection of beers, but at four bucks each, no complaints. Went for breakfast the next day. Lots of room to sit. Great choices at the buffet.
