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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
