What a lovely hotel the Best Western Plus is. We were greeted by a friendly lady on the front desk who kindly helped us with our questions regarding the facility and surrounding area. My husband had forgotten his dress pants and the staff were very good at explaining the nearest stores to buy more. We found the hotel very clean and the bed was so comfortable. As a Platinum member it sure was lovely to get the upgrade to a suite! Totally enjoyed the jetted tub! A real treat.

This was our second stay at the Emerald Isle Best Western. As before, our room was clean and comfortable. Easy, friendly check in, restaurant next door. Comfortable squishy bed. Amenities. Close 5 min drive to the airport. Would stay here again.

We happened onto this hotel by a Google search, needing a hotel for one night close to the Victoria Airport. What a great find! Not only convenient but very clean, modern and pleasant. The room (306) was very nicely equipped and overall comfort was outstanding. We were so impressed that we commented to ourselves that on our next trip to visit greater Victoria, we would stay here as a base even though it's a small trip into the city center. Great value and total comfort here. A++

Fantastic stay with all of the amenities! Loved everything about the hotel! Great service, comfortable room! Right across street from Mary Winspear Conference Center and did not get in car until leaving as it was a 15 minute walk to waterfront as well. Will be back!!

Although we only stayed one night, we would surely return. Room was very clean and well appointed. The convenience of a restaurant attached to the building (on a wet Sidney day) was a great convenience. It's proximity to the airport was also very convenient.

If you are visiting Victoria, or the surrounding area on Vancouver Island, this is a perfect place to stay. I stay there regularly and prefer it to all the alternative hotels and places to stay. It is a 20 minute drive to downtown Victoria, but worth the drive. It is in beautiful Sidney, British Columbia a lovely and elegant town. Very close to the airport and to The Butchart Gardens. I highly recommend this hotel.

The beds; mattress and bedding best I have have had in a while in this price range. Clean and Nice. Minor issues in room if I'm picky. Slept Well. Location in Sidney is ideal for the walking around, and the airport.

There aren't many hotels in the area close to the airport so this was the ideal spot. The rooms are clean and the staff is polite. The check-in is relatively fast which is important. The hotel is old and there are 2 buildings. The hotel is 2 stories and made up of wood structure so if someone above you decides to jump up and down (which has happened) then you will have to sit and hear it all. Overall its a good hotel. Don't eat at the Smitty's restaurant attached to the hotel though.

This is a great hotel if you want to explore the town of Sidney near the Victoria airport. Victoria is just over half an hour away by bus and the ferry is close by. Sidney is a cute little town with lots of shops and restaurants. A great place for a vacation.

Excellent hotel in Sidney . Very clean, comfortable and close to everything. Room was comfortable and affordable . The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There is no reason to go all the way to Victoria to sleep !
