Excellent location, friendly staff and great room experience make Oak Harbor Best Western different than other hotels around Whidbey island area. The fresh cookies and hot coffee/tea makes us surprised when we came back from raining outside. It's very easy for clients to go most of attractive place if you choose Best Western Oak Harbor. I mean, it's a 10... More

A recent visit to Deception Pass/Oak Harbor area brought us to this Best Western conference center. We couldn't say it was a bad experience staying there, but not great. The front desk didn't greet us when we came through the door and when we asked to change for a two-bed room, she quickly rejected us. She also told us all... More

Good motel, but a bit noisy -- the rooms could use a bit more sound insulation. Could hear the in-room refrigerator turning on and off through the night quite loudly -- it could have been placed outside the bedroom area. Could hear other rooms' bathroom fans and showers running for the early-risers. On top of that, the Navy likes to... More

Wonderful staff, beautiful place...enough said! The third floor with vaulted ceilings and a balcony make all the difference so if you can definitely stay on the third floor. Say hi to all the wonderful front staff, and be sure to enjoy the breakfast (and the smiles that are there to great you in the breakfast room).

We felt at home and so well cared for by the kind and helpful staff esp. the front desk personal. The room was very spacious with fresh new looking furniture and a cute little balcony. There is a Chinese restaurant next to the Hotel that is excellent!! Definitely got our monies worth.

This is a very nice place to stay that won't cost to much and you feel you got your monies worth. There is a restaurant out front with Asian food that is very good. The motel is located on the edge of town so it is nice to not deal with the city noise. If you want a place that... More

the hotel itself was nice, the bed and the pillows were horrible. At the end of our trip my back was killing me. I did not sleep well at all. The mattress was way too hard and the pillows had no substance to them. The second day when the room was cleaned, they forgot to give us our towels. The... More

The BW in Oak Harbor was very clean, the room was spacious and comfortable. The provided hot breakfast had several nice items on the menu. Staff was always courteous and friendly. It a was quiet and comfortable stay. Pool area could have been larger though.
