Edmonton, Canada1 contribution
Welcoming staff, clean property inside and out. Kitchenette was decent and convenient for my visit. Only issue is related to the AC/Heater units in the room. Being next to a residential access road and across from a strip mall/grocery store, traffic could be heard through the unit as though there was a window open. Fortunately the noise was minimal after midnight.

Hotel's Favourite
Our room was clean, the beds very comfortable and the room quiet Everything one looks for in a hotel. Included breakfast was basic but quite adequate (toast, yogurt, fruit, croissants, coffee, tea, etc. Parking was easily available and the location allows for a delightful stroll down the main street of Sidney, BC.

Fairly good stay! The room was clean, large and comfortable. The hotel is also located in downtown (at least a block or two away), which makes it very accessible on foot. Across the street Tim Hortons and a grocery store. Exercise facility is pretty good too. I would stay here again!

We needed a room for one night as we had an early flight leaving from Victoria Airport. This hotel is less 10 minutes driving time. We had never spent any time exploring the town of Sidney, we were amazed at what a beautiful spot it was with loads of unique little stores and some great restaurants!!

We were so fortunate to be able to stay at this Best Western location in beautiful Sidney, BC. The staff were extremely kind and courteous. Location was perfect to be able to enjoy a stroll through the charming seaside town, lunch on the waterfront and some incredible local artisanal shopping prior to taking off from the Victoria Airport on holiday. Rooms were clean and well appointed, we had a great sleep!

Beds and pillows were very comfy. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and fresh fruit were always in the lobby. Lobby was set up for Christmas with a nice fire going. They also had a computer in the lobby available for use. Loved being in Sidney, everything you could possibly need or want was within walking distance.

Arlington, Texas140 contributions58 helpful votes
We checked in the eve of Sep 18. Of the hotels I looked at, this was my third choice. I cannot stay in pet friendly rooms due to issues. My fav was booked, my second, while appealing, had all pet friendly rooms. This BW stated on the website, and I quote “Pets are not accepted.” When we arrived, the dog water bowl at the front door was a dead giveaway. I love dogs, so don’t get me wrong. When I said this was deceptive on their website, she said well, those rooms are over there, not yours, pointing in the air. Oh! It also said free continental breakfast. Wrong! My husband went down and said they had a few muffins and something else on a tiny round table in the lobby. Just nothing. I have never stayed at a BW, much less the plus version, where there was not a breakfast. Another couple was sitting at the only table, metal, chairs, outside by the parking area with their jackets on drinking coffee out of little styrofoam cups. Not my idea to start the day. But we found a fabulous cafe just down the street, on our own. What we saw on the website and what we were told, not the same. The restaurant she suggested for dinner was closed that and the next day. Would not stay here again.
