Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Sidney Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Sidney, BC discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Sidney hotel for each day and each star rating category.

A part of the Greater Victoria municipalities, Sidney is located on Vancouver Island, on the Saanich Peninsula's northern end. The Wsanec people, who speak the Sencoten language, are the original inhabitants of the area and lived in winter villages here for thousands of years before the arrival of the Europeans. Their name for the current site of Sidney was Settines, which, in Sencoten, means chest sticking out; that is how the lay of the land seemed to the Wsanec boat people.

They sold two forested tracts to the Hudson's Bay Company in 1852, and European settlers soon began making residence in the newly-designated North and South Saanich Districts. During the Fraser River Gold Rush in 1858, gold miners and speculators joined the settlers in North Saanich, and the town of Sidney got its start. It wasn't known as Sidney then, though. The town got that name much later from the nearby Sidney Island, which, in turn, received its name from Lieutenant Frederick William Sidney, a member of the Royal Navy's Hydrographic Service.

For a long time, the assumption was that Captain George Henry Richards, a naval officer with the H.M.S. Plumper and a friend of Sidney, was responsible for naming the island after him in 1859. However, with the discovery of the Admiralty Chart of 1847, it is now clear that the name change from the previous appellation of Sallas Island happened much earlier. The town became Sidney in 1891 after Julius Brethour named it after the island. The Brethour family, who had divided their 50 acres of land into lots for the new town, registered it as the Township of Sidney.

Today, with convenient rail and sea transportation links to Victoria and the BC mainland and its proximity to the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, Sidney is a popular destination for ecotourism. Along with its pleasant Mediterranean climate and bountiful flora and fauna, the town has many historical and cultural attractions. Whether you are coming for a brief visit or an extended stay, you will need to find the right hotel to make the most of your time here.

What Is the Seasonality of Sidney, British Columbia?

Sidney has mild temperatures throughout the year, but the best time to visit is between March to August. The weather is warmer in this period, with low chances of rain and snow. You can enjoy the beauty of the Salish Sea and keep an eye out for whales, many seabird species, and the distinctive Douglas firs. If you would like a cultural tour, Sidney has two museums, 12 bookstores, several cafes, many restaurants offering a range of international cuisine, a summer street market, and two annual parades.

As March through August are the busiest tourist months, hotel prices are likely to be high then and finding a good deal on a hotel room might get tricky. You should book your hotel room in advance of the tourist season.

To avoid the crowds and get a more reasonable hotel room price, you might want to wait until September through December. With the advent of chilly winds, rain, and snow, tourism slows down. As a result, you can get a better deal on a hotel room.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Sidney, BC:

"Picturesque Waterfront"
Score 4.0 / 5

Our hotel was within a 10 minute walk of the ocean, and there were some interesting shops along the way. Really liked the little statues on some of the benches closer to the water. There were a fair number of flower boxes too, with bulbs and spring flowers, which was nice.
