Canadas Best Value Inn & Suites Opens in Fernie, BC

(CLEVELAND, June 1, 2016) – Vantage Hotels continues to expand in Western Canada with the opening of a Canadas Best Value Inn & Suites in Fernie, BC. The property becomes the 12th CBVI in British Columbia.

Formerly a Travelodge, the Canadas Best Value Inn & Suites has free Wi-Fi, a heated indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and adjacent restaurant. All 36 rooms include a mini fridge and microwave, while some have a kitchenette and accommodate pets.

The property is surrounded by the Canadian Rockies and conveniently located on Highway 3 near great skiing at Fernie Alpine Resort. The area is also a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy golfing, hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, fishing and boating.

“I came to know (CBVI development director) Arun Deo through a friend when I was trying to explore the performance of other hotel franchises in BC. I called him and he explained what the CBVI franchise structure offers and provided me a few telephone numbers of some of the other CBVI properties in BC. I did my research fully, part of it by calling all those numbers. I was amazed by the response of those property owners; it was all so positive.

“What also interested me was that CBVI is member-driven, as all franchise owners come together yearly and have a voice and vote in all major brand decisions. Now I look forward to experiencing the CBVI flag/team to see how it helps me to provide the best possible accommodations for our guests and improve our financial bottom line,” said owner Bahadar Dhillon.
