“Good and accommodating staff!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I recently stayed here on a work trip and enjoyed my stay.The staff were very accommodating and they were very friendly. The hotel room seemed to be clean and had the basic amenities.

I had a room that faced the back parking lot so it was very quiet and I got a good night's sleep.

Internet is a little difficult to figure out but isn't impossible to deal with.

By strangely set-up I mean the bed was in one corner of the room and TV was on the other side. You had to lay sideways on the bed to watch TV or drag the desk chair across the room to sit in front of the TV. The staff were the best part of the stay, very helpful, even if they couldn't figure out how to get the WIFI to work in the room, they certainly tried hard. The room was very clean.

We spent two nights at this location over the Thanksgiving holiday. Very personable accommodating staff at the front desk and for the breakfast service. We liked our room because it had a sliding glass door that opened to the parking in the back and we were able to park in "front" of our room with easy access outside to the vehicle and the picnic tables / grassy area in the back. I also liked that when you open the hotel room door from the hallway, you don't see directly in to the room but there is a divider wall between the entrance way / bathroom and front closet. We had a small love seat along with a King bed which was very comfortable. On the first day the breakfast included scrambled eggs and bacon. The second day offered french toast and sausage. These offerings were in addition to the standard cold cereal, toast, yogurt, biscuits and gravy and fresh fruit. Towels were soft and of good quality. We ate at China City which shares a parking lot. Very convenient, nice interior decor, delicious food. All rooms are non-smoking. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Odd room numbers on the 1st floor 101-111 offer sliding glass doors that open to the back area and o...

Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I didn't expect much in sleepy Oak Harbor but this hotel was better than I expected. The service was outstanding and everyone was very nice, friendly and helpful.
We had a room facing the back ofmthe property which I believe is more quiet than rooms in the front facing the highway.
The breakfast was fairly common but did have warm items that did the job.
My biggest complaint would be the pillows. You get 4 on a king size bed and they are all the same, oversized and overstuffed. I found them uncomfortable. Maybe two different types would help.
Will stay here again for my next business trip.

Room Tip: Top floor, facing away from the highway.

One night stay at the Best Western in Oak Harbor. Good accommodation and an excellent free hot breakfast in the morning. I arrived without a reservation and quoted a internet rate I saw online for $104, and was given it with no hesitation. Friendly staff. Oak Harbor is a naval base and the fighter jets taking off and landing can be a bit disconcerting at first. Whidbey Island is beautiful. Hotel is on a "strip" that runs through town and is not "scenic" but makes for a good base to explore the Island.

Quick overnight stay in Oak Harbor (central Whidbey island).
Generally have poor experiences at Best Westerns, but this was very good.
Online res. worked perfectly.....Very nice room for $100, have stayed in worse for double that amount..
2 queens, large room ...AC worked pretty well (and I am always hot)...Nice touches like the
soaps, coffee makers, extended curtain in tub for showering, etc..
Continental breakfast nothing special, but had cereals, sausage, potatoes, toast, bagels, oatmeal, juice, milk, coffe and tea...Tables kept clean and cleared..
Plenty of parking and that was with a pretty full hotel...
We will be back....

Room Tip: We requested ground floor near the entrance and that's what we got....

I stayed here over a two week period for work. The property is old, but clean, and the front desk people are really nice. I tried to get into the Candlewood next door, but it was pretty booked up.

My room the first week was fine, but the second week my room had a certain "funk" that I couldn't place, like maybe it had once been a smoking room/floor. On the last night I was there, I noticed that around the sliding glass door there seemed to be mold which had transferred to the curtain. Kind of gross.

The breakfast is pretty good as far as hotel breakfasts go, and the coffee wasn't terrible. Overall, this place is nice enough, but probably not my first choice if I were to go to Oak Harbor again. The one thing that made up for the negatives is the nice and helpful staff.
