I had a lot of trouble keeping a receptionist on the phone long enough to book my room, waited on hold for nearly 15 minutes and was hung up on accidentally once. When I called back I ask to speak to the manager who was very apologetic, responsive and helpful. The hotel and room are clean and staff friendly, particularly the breakfast staff at the included continental breakfast. Unfortunately the shower pressure was so high (normally a good thing) that it was painful and could not easily be adjusted. The outdoor pool is advertised as heated but during our visit in late August only the most adventures kids were braving the cold water. Luckily the hot tub was nice and warm. The hotel overall is fine but I'd be open to staying somewhere different next time.

Just like the banner said voted " The Best Place to Stay in Oak Harbor ". We stopped there on our road trip to ????? celebrate 35 year's of marriage . The front desk stuff was awesome. Upon hearing it was our 35th wedding anniversary he up graded our room. The room was of very good size.. The king size bed was so comfortable that we both got a real good night sleep. The room were very clean and nicely appointed. They have a full breakfast with = potatoes, eggs, bacon, cereal, fruit, and a lot more. Has you walked the hall way the hotel stuff from house keeping to mantises to front desk would look at you and say " Hi " with a small on there face.We both wished we could of stayed longer. But we had places to go and things to see. It is a AWSESOME places to stay, and I would drive a extra 50 to 75 miles to stay there again.

Room Tip: The room's on the backside of the hotel are " quieter "

We took a group of 12 senior citizens on a Running Away From Home Outing to Whidbey Island and stayed at the Oak Harbor Hotel | BEST WESTERN PLUS Oak Harbor Plaza. Everyone remarked about the cleanliness, easy access room, location near Deception Pass State Park, Ebey's Landing State Park, the Penn Cove Ranch. the nearby lavendar farms, the Whidby Island naval Air Station and lots more shopping sites nearby.

This motel has large rooms. It is clean and quiet with a great breakfast. The staff was exceptionally helpful with a medical problem that we had. The only complain we had was that the check-out took 15 minutes. They did not supply a bill underneath the door during the night as most hotels do, and everything was done as you left, which meant a significant delay for most people. Still, we'd go there again, just allow more time to leave.

A very nice place to stay with a beautiful setting among the trees. Room was clean and nicely appointed. Bed was comfortable and everything worked correctly in the room and bath. Filling breakfast with eggs, bacon, etc. but no waffles. Easy to find hotel. They even had warm freshly baked cookies upon arrival! Nice touch. We would definitely consider staying here again whenever we get back to Whidby Island.

I have no qualms about this hotel, everything was as expected for a Best Western. Staff was friendly, and room furniture was fairly updated. Flat screen TV was a nice bonus as well. There was the standard stuff at the complementary breakfast. Oak Harbor is in no way any sort of destination, (we used it as a stopping point from Portland to Orcas Island) so staying there more than one night might have just done me in.

This place boasts being voted "best accommodation on Whidbey" which as far as I can tell must just stem from the fact that the most people have stayed there. It's a fine chain hotel--comfortable beds, clean, good service, but certainly nothing special. Our room had a bit of a funky smell. Being close to the air force base we heard loud planes constantly until about 1am, but that's nothing they can control. The pool was minuscule and not tempting to us since it seemed crowded with just 2 people already in there. Breakfast was not great--the usual selection of sugary pastries and overly fluffy/watered down eggs--but it did the job. We chose this place because it was significantly cheaper than a lot of places in the area, but I think next time we might spring for a little more charm.
