“Super Clean”
Reviewed 20 January 2011

Wow! I must say I am impressed! This place is absolutley spotless! The beds are extra squishy soft! nice quality sheets, lots of towels and amenities. What a treat to stay in a hotel with such obvious attention to detail! $150 (including taxes) for the night and that included parking for a week

Great location, clean spacious rooms, with friendly curtious staff, made this "smaller" Hotel feel like a "Grand" one. Restuarant on site was a bonus.

I disagree with the previous reviewer who was not happy with her check-in experience. I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times over the years, and I've never had a poor check-in experience. Quite the contrary. There is very little turnover with the staff, as the same people are there, year after year. I find them to be extremely helpful and polite.

This property is always upgrading their rooms, and it's rare that you'll find a cleaner, more inviting lobby. Most rooms have a little area with a bar sink, fridge, microwave and a counter. Bathrooms are spotless.

This hotel doesn't offer a free breakfast but it is attached to Smitty's restaurant.

I booked an anniverary vacation on Vancouver Island over 1 1/2 months ago with almost all the hotels being Best Westerns. I had told them it was for our anniversay and when we arrived in Sidney the front desk was less than friendly with one of them asking me rudely if I was by myself in the room and I said no I was with my husband. I had never been asked that ever and I should have said something anyway we got a room with no view - just the rainy roof arch of the front entrance. We didn't say anything since it was only for one night but their rudeness andlack of care when they knew it was for our anniversary upset me.

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!!
