A fairly comfortable hotel. The building is older but is obviously well kept up. There is a continental breakfast which while not extensive with respect to choice is pretty good. It takes a while to get hot water in the morning but parking is free and overall this is an excellent value for the area, some of the rooms have...

My sister and I were bumped last minute from the Sidney Pier Hotel and Spa - which immediately annoyed us, however when we arrived at our ocean view suite at the Sidney Waterfront Inn we were immediately pacified. With a huge soaker tub, view, fire place and breakfast snacks we were all set for our next day at the Gardens.

Very nice hotel. Small two story older hotel. Shows as having recent renovations. Very clean and comfortable. Recommend rooms on ocean side as others look at street only. Great location for strolling past shops and restaurants. Good value Great view of ocean and boats cruising in and out of local marina.

We stayed here April 13-19th, 2016. We last stayed in 2008 and we were so pleased that nothing had changed! The hotel staff are the best! They help you in any way they can whether it was for directions or to answer any questions you may have...they do it with a smile! The rooms and service was great. The views...

This is a small but wonderfully situated spot. We stayed in the older part of the hotel, not the newer suites, and the room was small and cozy with a fantastically comfortable bed that combined with some sea air made for a wonderful sleep. A very simple but lovely breakfast, just what we needed but not overkill. Friendly staff. And...

I think this family-owned and -operated hotel deserves five stars for its location, amenities, friendly staff and very reasonable price. We biked in from Victoria and were greeted with a warm welcome and an offer to store our bikes in the hotel office. We stayed in a second-floor room and enjoyed a glass of wine on our balcony while overlooking...

This was our first stop in Canada. Hotel was comfortable, clean and close to shopping.There is a grocery and deli right across the street along with many restaurants within walking distance. The only drawback ( and hence a 4 star rating) is the lack of an elevator. Other than that, it is a perfect place to stay in Sidney

This is an older hotel, it is ok but not the cleanest hotel I have ever been in. Needs updating, flooring and mattresses look and feel aged. The location is great, near restaurants and the beach for a walk. I would use it in a pinch as it is close to the airport.
