“August 2014 BW Plus in Oak Harbor WA”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We have stayed in fancier BW PLUS hotels (in large cities like Minneapolis), but this one was great for Whidbey Island beach community. Nice pool, convenient to many great places to eat, close to Deception Pass, and easy to find.

Our son is an officer in the Navy, stationed at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, less than a mile from this hotel. When we visited our son and D-I-L recently, we stayed here for four nights, because our son said it was the best hotel in town, and we were not disappointed. Clean, nice rooms. Great free hot breakfast with a wide variety of food: eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, hash browns, oatmeal, muffins, yogurt, bagels, fruit, cereal, etc. Fresh cookies and fruit are put out in the lobby in the evenings! The pool and hot tub are outdoors, so probably only open in the summer. Computer and free printer in the lobby to print boarding passes, advance tickets, etc. Highly recommend this hotel, but BE ADVISED: there is a Naval AIR Station less than a mile away, and there are Navy jets flying over all day and sometimes at night. If this is bothersome to you, you probably don't want to stay on Whidbey Island at all, because the jets also use a carrier practice landing strip down by Coupeville in the middle of the island. The noise wasn't that bad, IMHO. My son works closely with a squadron of those jets, so I consider it the sound of FREEDOM! Ha Ha

Loved the Best Western in Oak Harbor, Washington for a weekend stay to mountain bike in the area. Although they were experiencing a bad computer problem that affected 30 over-bookings, they honored our reservation made by phone, and accommodated us in a vaulted room on the 3rd floor. We love that they are pet-friendly, the rooms are super clean, parking is free, and the breakfast is included (although no organic options, which we would like to see Best Western start to include). Would like recycling in the rooms and lobby. Good AAA value. Good location to State Parks and quaint Coupeville.

being rated #1 in Oak Harbor (out of 4) did not make me confident when I booked a soccer team at this location. I'll start with reservations. The Manager Mr. Marshall is a keeper. He set us up and did not let me down from start to finish.
The Staff (shout out to Ashleigh...and her trainee Kristen, yes I did that :)
was awesome and took care of all our needs and even kept 16-15 year olds in check.
The Hotel is on Hwy 20 but you don't notice other then its easy access. Its an older hotel that has been remodeled and done right. No smells, No loud air conditioners bathrooms with sinks outside of the toilet/bathtub.
The rooms were spacious and clean with room for a blow up bed if you are so inclined.
The breakfast was yummy with French toast on Saturday and SOS on Sunday. Top that with bacon, scrambled eggs and potatoes and you have one heck of a free meal.
Pool was outside and a bit tight for 16 kids but they all had a good time.
Deception pass was beautiful and the Shrimp shack down the street was packed.
Chinese Restaurant next door(in the parking lot) was perfect with happy hour from 3-7 for parents. Try the Crab wonton.
The staff at this Best Western is a 10 only competition they have that I am aware of is Ahtanum Inn staff which is also a 10.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to visiting you all next year again.
No Kristen that is not a threat...LOL

Room Tip: like the earlier posts said the 3rd floor has high beamed ceilings in the rooms so looks larger.

Nothing special, but certainly not the worst place to stay. We were traveling with 3 and were told by the head office we could get a roll away, then upon checking in we were told they could not put a roll away in a two queen room for fire safety reasons. OK that's understandable, but would have like to have known earlier. Breakfast was good, scrambie eggs, and little french toast sticks. Great water pressure in the shower! Housekeeping could search the rooms a little better, empty beer bottle found behind curtain. Overall not a bad place to stay.

Phones no longer have voice mail which we did not like. Feel that it is an invasion of privacy for callers to leave messages at the front desk and not be able to call the room number to leave their message at.
