This location is close to naval air base...the sounds of fighter jets are always present and very loud (some say these are the sounds of freedom). If noisy planes bother you stay in Anacortes or Coupeville. However staff are friendly and helpful.......continental breakfast was excellent.

We booked this place as a last minute getaway from Canada and are glad we did. We have done a day trip to Port Townsend and have explored Coupeville town and surrounding area as well. As I am a loyal Best Western points collector, I have been to a few of them and must say this one meets all of... More

Had a family reunion for 52 people from ages 5 to age 79. Absolutely no complaints about the staff, facilities or amenities. Amanda Zimmerman, the front desk manager, was exemplary in her helpfulness, as was Manuel Caballero. All the staff were highly professional and friendly: Marshall Smith, Dorothy Sullivan, Kirsten Dietz, Laura Needham, Chris York, Nova Caballero and Maria Mallam.... More

We stayed on Whidbey Island to go to the state parks and beaches. This hotel was a great location, comfortable, and the room was roomy enough for our family (2 teenagers). Breakfast had good choices, including some quality protein. The kids enjoyed the cookies in the evening. Also, the restaurant next door, China City, was pretty good - especially after... More

We had a very comfortable, surprisingly quiet night, with a nice breakfast the next morning. All the staff we encountered were friendly, helpful - just, great! My sister and I enjoyed our night's stay very much. We would definitely stay there again if and when we are in the area.

This hotel was chosen for it's location being a mid point of a one night stay to the island. Easily located on the main road, but set far enough back that there was no traffic noise, admittedly our room was at the back. Friendly welcome, exceptionally clean & bright public areas & pool/hot tub area. Rooms were average on space... More

My wife and I stayed here one night and was pleasantly surprised as Best Westerns are typically not our choice hotel. We upgraded to a larger room, which had a seating area, large bathroom and vaulted cielings with a small patio. Room was clean, check-in was quick and efficient. Bed was quite comfortable and had free wi-fi. There is a... More

Not a lot of choices for Oak Harbor area but I would say this is the best. Room was a good size, very clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and the location was good. We would stay there again on our next trip..

Be sure you smell the room before you unpack. Two of this hotels rooms smelled so bad we could not stay there and had to move. The pool and spa area was just at the point before falling apart, tiles missing and could use a good cleaning. The pool was freezing and too cold for all but the heartiest of... More

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.
