Our housekeeping and maintenance departments have worked hard to achieve this level of excellence.”

Located at 350 NE High School Road, Bainbridge’s Best Western features 51 rooms, free parking, free continental breakfast, and fitness and business centers.

The big award was just the latest in a number of achievements for the Bainbridge Best Western.

Best Western Plus Bainbridge Island Suites was also recently recognized as a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame winner.

The Certificate of Excellence award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. The “Hall of Fame” was created to honor businesses that have earned a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years.
