Too expensive for what it is.

Posted 02-Jul-2015
The hotel is a 3 star at best pretending to be a 5 star. No a/c in the public areas make it seem like stepping into a sauna when you leave your room. Made us pay for parking but then there were no spots available. Staff did not care, wouldn't give money back.

Stay in Sidney!

Posted 25-Jun-2015
Pros: Views of the pier were beautiful. Has coin operated laundry. Books to borrow next to the elevator.
Cons: Upgrade breakfast selections...current offerings seemed limited.
Location: Bookstores, ferry to San Juans, aquarium, nice shops and restaurants.
We stayed in Sidney as a base for a trip to the San Juan islands. The hotel is walking distance to the Anacortes Ferry, so you don't need to rent a car. The views from our room were beautiful, and staff was very helpful.

I needed quiet time and relaxation, and this hotel delivered both. The spa was luxurious. Highly recommended. The hotel bar and restaurant featured genial hosts and Kyle, a bar guru.

Lovely hotel

Posted 24-Jun-2015
Pros: The bathroom is spacious and modern. The bookshelves in every floor.
Cons: Provide coffee and some danish for early travelers as there are no restaurant open yet.
Location: Nice stroll or even a good jog along the pier at the same enjoying the nice view of the water and the boats docked, good shopping, restaurants around.
We stayed just for one night as we had an early flight the next day. We wished we stayed for a couple of days. The hotel is very nicely located in quaint town of Sidney, close to shopping and good restaurants, facing a nice view of the pier. The staff is very nice, and very helpful. The room is very clean. Overall, it was a very nice experience.

Loved it!

Posted 22-Jun-2015
Pros: Hotel was very clean, rooms terrific with top notch features and a terrific bed. GREAT Staff. Parking was good, but there was a fee.
Cons: Restaurant was pricey so we didn't eat there but DID enjoy the Café for their coffee. The Café closes a little early though.
Location: Beautiful views; well maintained walking path; beach; two piers; Boondocks restaurant short walk away; FULL grocery store kitty corner to hotel.
Terrific hotel in a great location! Had a Junior Suite with a GREAT view on a large balcony with chairs and a table provided. Full kitchenette with large frig/freezer; dishwasher; dishes; microwave; coffee maker. Nice table and chairs as well as easy chair for watching TV. Terrific! Gorgeous bathroom with NICE stall shower and very nice tub, double sinks. WOW. When you stay, be sure to go to the Boondocks restaurant just a short walk away. 9732 First Street, just down the street from the Grocery store that you can see from the Hotel. Very close, easy walk and Boondocks was super fun (live entertainment); generous portions; TERRIFIC staff. This hotel is in a GREAT location. Really nice walking paths right there too and just gorgeous views.

Lovely, convenient location

Posted 16-Jun-2015
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing we can think of.
Location: Very close to interesting shops, restaurants and the water.
We stayed in the hotel as we were flying out of YGH early the next morning. We had a very restful sleep and loved the wood-fired thin crust pizza we enjoyed in a pizza house only 4 blocks from the hotel. We would stay there again.

Front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

Posted 10-Jun-2015
Very welcoming staff at front desk, they provided a quick check in and a good overview of the hotel, restaurant, coffee shop etc. We had a small dog with us who was also made to feel welcome and she thoroughly enjoyed the cookie treat that had been left for her in our room.

Lovely room 408, view of the people and the pier ,

Posted 05-Jun-2015
Pros: Very beautiful setting right on the ocean and pier with lot of walking along the ocean and cute shops for those want to browse.
Cons: If I could have been given my parking pass when I checked in instead of having to go down to the car again when we arrived home late at night.
Location: loved looking at the pier and the lovely flowers and the beautiful sea breeze.
Friendly staff and very accomodating. Very comfortable room with a nice deep soaker tub. Very quiet at night even though right over the end of the pier. We did not hear a sound as Sidney is a lovely quiet seaside town at night. Delicious restaurant for breakfast in the hotel. We met friends there from Victoria whom had wanted to drive out to try the restaurant.

Delightful Experience

Posted 30-May-2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: A magical mystical place by the sea on beautiful Vancouver Island!
It was magical. Walking along the water and on the pier in the morning was so beautiful. Lots of places to get terrific food. Wonderful market on Thursday evening, at least in the summer. We only live an hour away but we came down this way to go to Cirque du Soleil and then my husband was flying from the nearby airport the next morning so it was very convenient. We are going to come down some time just for a mini vacation and we know it will be fabulous. See you next time!

Great place to stay when visiting Victoria. BC!

Posted 28-May-2015
Cons: Maybe not charge $5.00/day for parking for hotel guests
This is about a 30 minute drive from Victoria and worth it. Victoria is small, so you can cover it in 2 days really. Staying on the other side of the island was a nice get away to see more on a 3 day weekend. The gardens are located in between Victoria and Sidney, FYI. We were completely impressed with this hotel and the room. The room had 2 bathrooms, a kitchen with dishes and a dishwasher, a fireplace, a dinning room table, a balcony, a living room....it's pretty much bigger than our apartment! Fabulous view of the water, the town is cute, and Haro's the hotel restaurant is great and the staff at both were great!
