Had a very positive experience. Everything was great. Loved that it was a 3 minute walk from my relative's condo. The beds were comfortable. The room was clean. Shared it with my daughter. Had an earthquake experience while there which was exciting. Everything was good!

After a long day travelling, the Emerald Isle was a perfect place to spend a night. The staff was welcoming and very friendly. The hotel is in a great location within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the waterfront. As always, the beds and pillows are amazing and we had the best sleep ever. We would definately return again. Thanks!

Great spot to stay in Sidney. All amenities are close by and it is a short walk to the ocean. Clean rooms, service was great! Staff were helpful with helping us find a good place to eat. Sidney is a quiet little place but there is lots of little shops, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and grocery stores. We will be...
