My experience with Best Western has been terrific, from the GM to the front end staff, to the cleaners. All proved to be the best! Felt welcomed when I returned truly like a home away from home. When visiting for appointments will always make Best Western my hotel of choice.

We had a family medical emergency at the hotel, at which time the Best Western personnel were outstanding in helping an urgent and very compassionate manner. It was tremendous to receive such support from this hospitality facility!

Best Western Emerald Isle is a great hotel in downtown Sidney. Clean and well maintained hotel. Wonderful staff! You can walk down Beacon Ave and see great little shops and cafes and restaurants and at the end of the street is a pier where you can do lots of walking or sit an enjoy the ocean view. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Be sure to sign up for Best Western Points before you go if you aren't a member already!

Our room was very clean, quite and comfortable. Although we did not have the best breakfast. Restaurant was under construction and they just gave us a bag of few things and we had to go to the reception and ask for it.

Our experiences with the front desk staff were all well above average. It is clear there is a real focus on providing excellent customer service. Location is perfect for those arriving at Swartz Bay ferry terminal and for exploring the lovely town of Sidney.
