Make sure you check your rates. Wouldn't take our government rate on the weekend. Given a deal but we had to take three nights. When we didn't need the three nights we couldn't cancel 24 hours ahead of time. We offered to pay the normal rate for the first two nights but they

Hello cdn g, Thank you for bringing to our attention your concerns about our rates and cancellation policy. Our rates fluctuate on a daily basis and there are certain restrictions and cancellation policies when booking extended discounted rates. Government rates are not always available. Unfortunately, as I do not know your name, I am unable to review your past reservation to offer a better explanation as to why the rate requested was not offered as well the cancellation request. Please contact me directly at the hotel to further assist you with this matter. I look forward hearing from you. Sincerely, Stephanie Front Desk Manager

This was our second time needing a room in the Victoria airport vicinity in the past 8 months. We made the mistake of choosing one of the other hotels in the area the first time. We paid less at the Best Western and got way more value. The room was first class, super

My wife and I came into the Victoria airport (actually in Sidney) to attend a memorial service for a good friend. We stayed in Sidney since it is very close to both the airport for our return and to Victoria, where the service was being held. The Emerald Isle hotel is

I've stayed here on previous visits, and always found the staff to be friendly and professional. Once again, they looked at my profile and, as a Diamond Rewards member, they';d already upgraded me to a king suite, as they always had in the past. This level of service is why I

How is the parking? Close to the hotel?
We have a very large parking lot that can easily accommodate many vehicles (large and small). Parking is also included in your rate.

These folks are incredibly helpful and accommodating. And, being near-ish the airport, they 100% "get it" when it comes to the vagaries of air travel. If you've confirmed your room with a credit card AND told them your flight's ETA, you should be good for the room. Hope that helps!

How close is it to the airport and is there a shuttle
The hotel is about a 2-3 minute drive to the airport. I was surprised just how close it is, considering you don't really hear any air traffic overhead. Honestly, I don't recall there being a shuttle, but I had a car rental so I didn't really notice.
