Continental breakfast was fairly standard as was the room. We had requested and paid for a sea view room but were told upon arrival that there wasn't one available. I had to push for a room rate reduction as the non view rooms were cheaper.

A local contact recommended this as a less-fancy and less-pricey alternative for my short stay in town. It was all of that, with friendly service and a tidy room to make for a great stay. Having frequently stayed in Victoria but never in Sidney, this visit prompted me to re-think the equation. Unless you're traveling to/from Port Angeles or you're...

The location is absolutely stunning. After the complimentary breakfast, a morning walk along the sea edge and down the pier as the sun is rising will take your breath away. Even during the rainy March season, you will get a smile and a "good morning" from every local walking their dogs or jogging along the sea walk.

Our Sidney host rescued us from another hotel and insisted we stay here. What a pleasant surprise. The room for the price is perfect for us, nice clean bathroom, comfortable clean beds and can you believe it two TVs one in the bedroom the other in the living room. The staff are incredible right from reception through to the cleaning...

The location of this smaller inn can not be beat - right on the ocean with a seaside walking path or quaint, very unique shops (galleries, bookstores, decor and clothing) and great restaurants literally outside your door. Because it is a smaller hotel, it feels so homey and welcoming. The staff is great and the ambience is informal and comfortable....

Great place! When we arrived we were greeted warmly and instantly felt welcome, check in was easy and the room was clean and nicely maintained. The location is perfect for a short walk to the restaurants and downtown core and perfectly situated right on the water for a nice stroll to walk off dinner. Would thoroughly recommend this inn vs...

I can tell the real draw to a place like this is the location, view and convenience. I did get a room overlooking the water; but the late checkin and early checkout meant it was dark and i missed it. There was alot to do in the area and i did have a few restaurants within easy walking distance. very...

This is a nice quaint waterfront hotel that has the feel of warmth and cozy rooms. The beds are comfy and they offer a nice breakfast. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that they had a fair going on and we walked through the town viewing many kiosks and venues. We also purchased souvenirs and treasures to take home...

We stayed here for 2 nights last August and it was quite lovely. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Walking distance to attractions and restaurants. We requested an Ocean view room and the view was lovely. However, our room also backed onto the entrance to the pub/restaurant behind the hotel. The customers coming and going weren't a problem at all....
