“Best sleep of your life!!”
Reviewed 30 August 2010

We stayed here for one night on our way back from Mexico, and so did my parents. They had to see what kind of bed they had slept on, as it was wonderful. They went straight home & bought that bed from sleep country, and we did the next week. WOW!! Best sleep of our life!!

The hotel is conveniently located from Victoria International Airport. It is extremely clean and the staff are pleasant. The beds are super comfortable and so a good nights rest is a given.

One of the best motels we have stayed at. The staff and front desk were very friendly and helpful. The rooms spotless and quite. We received a free breakfast at Smitty's which is in the same building, very convenient.

As a concert promoter, we can stay at dozens of hotels every month. They range from road side to downtown, budget to elite. The Emerald Isle is one of those you see but you never really get the chance to "drop in" to. I will always make this our stop on the Island when we are there. Right outside the Ferry Terminal, so close to the airport, yet not in the flight path, quiet with having everything you could want. The staff are always friendly and courtious. The rooms are incredibly large for the size of location. Well kept, very clean, presentable to any walk of life that comes through the door. For being who they are, I consider them elite in every class, they don't need to be downtown!

Went to Victoria for my wife's 50th. Stayed at the Best Western Carlton Saturday and the Best Western Emerald Sunday in April. Both experiences were wonderful. The Carlton was a suite for 95.00 (American dollars-found the room on Priceline), was clean, quiet, wonderful beds and located near everything downtown. Sunday was a quieter day with hiking on the west coast. We wanted to be close to the ferry for the next morning so went to Sidney for that night. When we told the hostess it was my wife's birthday and what a good time we had at the Carlton she found us a nice quiet room, gave us a little discount and we had a wonderful evening walking the town and hot-tubbing. Both rooms were very clean, quiet and comfortable. We were impressed with the service and the experience in both locations.

I stay in this hotel periodically on business. The hotel features a number of suites as well as standard rooms. I believe all rooms have microwaves and small fridges, as well as some with full kitchens. Staff is always friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The area features a number of nice pubs and restaurants, and the hotel is a short walk from the waterfront.

The fitness center is not worth mentioning, you would be much better off going around the corner to Body Barn which charges $6.00 to drop in.

The hotel is incorrectly listed as being in Victoria BC, but it is actually in Sidney.
