We always stay here when we come to oak harbor. We get the suite with the bedroom and kitchen at a great price. Always clean and friendly staff. Only down is no pool and their cupboard is a little pricey.

I booked this for Memorial weekend, hoping for just a little dog-friendly room to shower and sleep in while we did outdoorsy stuff around the island. However, we were very pleasantly surprised! The front desk staff always had a smile on their face and were very quick to help anytime we had a question or needed something like extra towels. There was fruit-infused water in the lobby every day, which was a very classy touch. The free coffee in the Candlewood Cupboard was really good, too. The room was much more than I expected for less than $100/night! It was large and very clean, had a full fridge with an ice maker, a microwave, 2 burner stove top, and dishwasher. The bathroom was also large and very clean. The bed was fairly comfortable, too. My only complaint is that the room seemed to get hot and stuffy at night, despite turning the air down. We had a room on the first floor in the back, not far from the lobby, but it was so quiet. I didn't hear a peep for such a busy weekend, and it really felt like we had the hotel to ourselves. We brought our dog along, and were happy to find that there was a little place out back to walk him, along with doggy bags and a garbage can. A couple quick things to note: Housekeeping is done once a week, or in between stays, rather than daily, and there is no continental breakfast. These things didn't bother us at all, but other travelers might want to know.

We stayed here after viewing the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. It was much more reasonable than saying in Burlington/Mount Vernon and gave an opportunity on traveling down Whidbey Island. It is quite a non-descript/institutional looking building outside and at check in, however that is the only downside.

The young lady at check-in was very nice and efficient with all my pre-booking information at her fingertips. (I will point out the there is some confusion with booking using their IHG app. About 5 hours before checking in I received a very pleasant phone call informing me that the 2 double bed unite that I reserved was not available, if fact they don’t have any double beds and if single Queen was satisfactory. Well, I had reserved a single Queen but their system had presented to them the wrong information, even though my printout was correct. It was nice to know beforehand there was a potential issue and they immediately looked into it.)

Back to check-in, the young lady was very informative, asked if we had ever stayed at a Candlewood (no) showed the extensive library of DVDs and printed the listing that were available at no charge (there are precise instructions on how to use the two TV clickers included with each DVD case), informed us of the laundry room, BBQ area, and exercise room.

There is also what they call the Candlewood Cupboard that has a variety of snacks and food stuffs available (including frozen meals) and if there is no one at the front desk you can slip the funds into a box or leave a note to charge to your room.

The room was well laid out with many kitchen facilities (pots, pans, cutlery, etc.) coffeemaker, microwave (including a bag of popcorn), everything you need to cook a lovely meal plus all cleanup (dishwasher) paraphernalia you need, comfortable bed, TV, and roomy bathroom (nice towels too.) And we found it very sound proof.

NO, there is not a morning buffet, and they don’t try to pretend there is, anywhere. If you are traveling south on the island Spring time is a great time to stop off at the Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens.

All and all it was a very pleasant stay, just like the staff.

Wonderful place. Full fridge, kitchenette, a nice fitness center, and (my favorite) an honor system store to buy groceries and toiletries etc. staff was always helpful and courteous.
It's a bit different than other hotels: cleaning service once a week, no continental breakfast-- but suited me just fine.

Stayed one night while visiting our daughter. Hotel is new and very clean and nice. We were pleasantly surprised to have a full kitchen. Really enjoyed the room, except the bed was pretty jiggly and too soft so didn't really sleep well. Would be nice to have king bed. All in all a positive experience. Staff were very helpful and nice. Very quiet and conveniently located. We will stay here again when we visit the next time!

The location was good and convenient. The establishment was clean, nice with plenty of amenities, including; pool, fitness room, laundry facility, doggy park, wi-fi/internet and 24 hours mini market. The reception staff was friendly, welcoming and professional. There is an abundance of complimentary parking. Many eateries and restaurants nearby with some in walking distance from the hotel. A Chinese restaurant next door called China City looked fancy on the outside, but the food was just OK.

The rooms were impressive. It was clean, efficient and well furnished. Not sure if it is a newer establishment, but it had the look and feeling of one. The kitchenette included; full-size refrigerator and microwave (except for stove), everything you need for cooking, laundry basket, good-size closet, granite slabs, nice tiles & wood cabinetry, laminated hardwood floors and leather armchair & executive chair. The only things that might deserve a frown was no lotion bottle and the pillows were quite flat. Although the bed was comfortable, there were some hairs and minor old stains on the sheets. Nevertheless, not huge issues. The rest made up for it. The establishment was quiet and peaceful.
