“Well-maintained, Good location in Oak Harbor”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We enjoyed a nice mini-vacation stay at the Oak Harbor Best Western. The room was spacious enough, clean enough, and the AARP rate and service were good. The bedding and pillows were not that good, and we found a dead small spider in our bed upon waking the last two mornings, which we got a not-so-impressive response from the front desk at checkout. Otherwise, however, this is a pretty well-maintained facility with a heated pool, very nice Chinese restaurant right out front, and a fairly nice continental breakfast. We thought it was better than average in spite of the few negatives noted. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Internet was sketchy on bottom floor and were switched to top, third floor, and it worked fine.

We stayed here because we were visiting the Blue Fox Drive-In (highly recommend!!) and did not want to drive home in the very early morning hours tired. We were able to check in early without any issues, kids played in the pool and hot tub - had a great time! The rooms wasn't anything to write home about - not much for color (browns and golds). It was disapponting that there was not a vanity area outside of the bathroom so only one person could get ready at a time. The windows are thin so you can hear the traffic on the street and the drapes do not close so we were woken up too early by the sun coming through. We would probably stay again because of the location.

They have great accessibility for wheelchairs, and their rooms with queen beds are the best for people who use mobility aids. I am in a long power wheelchair and had no difficulty getting around in our room nor in the rest of the facility. The staff was superb in meeting the needs we had do to my disability. We love this Best Western better than any other one we have stayed in. WE WILL BE BACK TO STAY AGAIN!

We chose this hotel because it appeared to be the best choice available among those we found online. Our room was clean, but had a smell that indicated someone must have smoked in the non-smoking room at some point. Not ideal, but not worth changing rooms about. Lots of space in our room, wifi worked fine, free breakfast was adequate but breakfast room is pretty small. Go early if you want a seat. We paid about $175 US on a Saturday. Would have rated higher if price was a bit lower to reflect the fact it's an older property without much in the way of amenities to justify the high rate.

Very enjoyable 3 day stay. I did not use the fitness center. My room was just off the lobby on the first floor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hot tub and pool are outside and could have had more staff attention. Hot tub was not hot enough. The room was very roomy and nicely furnished. The WiFi worked very well.

Our takeaway from our visit was the quality of the pillows: they were the worst. All four had such bad sleeps, we'd never go back. One person was so fed up, they rolled out of bed, got a towel from the bathroom, rolled it up and used it for a pillow.
The staff were friendly and helpful. They made two recommendations on places to eat and both were bad. Maybe we shouldn't have eaten in Oak Harbor if these were recommended.

Room Tip: Before you get a room check out the pilows. Nothing worse thatn a terrible nights sleep at a hotel.

Hotel looks impressive from the outside and promises all the amenities you look for at a quality hotel. But we were disappointed the hot tub was "Out of Order" during our entire stay. The front desk staff (one young woman) was virtually inaccessible every time we tried to ask a question so we just gave up. We weren't the only ones as it became a topic of discussion with other guests. Breakfast ran out of breakfast items early. Won't recommend this one in the future.
