Our 64 room property is an easy 32 kilometers (20 miles) north of Victoria, the capital of British Columbia and we are just minutes from the Victoria International Airport, the BC Ferry Terminal and the Anacortes Ferry Terminal. Also close by are the Butchart Gardens, Butterfly Gardens, Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, the renowned Mary Winspear Center, amazing whale watching, many organic farms, wineries, outstanding golf courses, great fishing, kayaking and hiking.

We’re a dog pet-friendly, non-smoking hotel with ample free parking. We offer free wireless, a daily newspaper, Keurig® coffee machines in every room along with an exercise room. All rooms are fully air-conditioned, beautifully carpeted and have modern furnishings. For your convenience, you can choose from rooms with full kitchens, king or queen beds, large soaker tubs or with a separate bedroom. The adjoining Smitty’s family-style restaurant is open until 5 p.m. daily.

Sidney is known for its sophisticated small town charm and as a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city. A stroll down Beacon Avenue allows you to take in many shopping and dining opportunities. The Thursday night summer Sidney Market draws locals and visitors from Victoria and the surrounding communities.

Whether you’re a business or corporate traveler, a family looking for a get-away, a snow bird/long-term stay or you just want a change of pace for a few days - come and stay with us! In order to provide our valued customers with a comfortable stay we are excited to announce that our hotel will be under renovation tentatively Nov. 20, 2017 through March 2018. The hotel will continue normal day-to-day operations during renovations.
