It is beautiful to see the view from this hotel...but, the rooms are just ok. The bathroom was down the hall and the shower was in a different room. It was mediocre, but, there wasn't much choice and it was convenient to the ferry -- you MUST leave many hours to wait in line for the ferry or you will... More

Booked Orcas through a Groupon for a two night stay with a friend. Ferries to the island had great scenery so it was no surprise that the view from our room was stunning. Hotel itself is quaint and dated. Room was an okay size with a great size balcony. I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The... More

After Friday Harbor took the ferry to Orcas and walked over to the Orcas hotel, from the outside I thought wow very nice and quaint fits the surrounding perfectly. Upon stepping on step in side the tiny lobby the staff were not very interested in service and our rooms were not ready. Never mind went to the cafe that is... More

The pros: quaint hotel, good location, friendly owner and staff. The cons: thin walls so you hear everything that is going on, including the ferry traffic. The first ferry leaves at 6:45 am and the last one at 10ish pm Restaurant has limited choices for breakfast, the ones that we tried were not good, we also ate dinner at their... More

Staying at a hotel which is greater than 100 years old is always fun and a little quirky, which we enjoy. Next to the Orcas harbor, the view was beautiful, punctuated by being able to watch the ferries arrive and leave. Our room was clean, cute, with lots of character along with a balcony overlooking the harbor which would have... More

Our family had the entire hotel booked for my niece's wedding. It was wonderful. Nice rooms, lovely setting for the wedding, good food, and fabulous staff. Yes, it is an old hotel but we did not have any issues with that. The room was clean and very comfortable. We always use a white noise app on my phone when we... More

We arrived on Orcas prepared to camp at Moran, but realized that we'd left the key to our cargo bin at home. D'oh! We were desperate for lodging, and after calling several places with no vacancy (or plenty of vacancy for my husband and me, but not our 2 4-year-olds), we landed on Orcas Inn that had 1 room left....

This was my second visit and was not disappointed. I love the old historic charm with an awesome view of the harbor and ferry dock! We ordered dinner at the cafe, then sat out on the balcony off the second floor. We watched the ferry activity and sailboats in the harbor. We stayed in the Harney Channel room…spacious and comfortable.... More

The hotel is located right off of the ferry and is very convenient to travel. It is beautiful and the view over the bay is stunning. Plenty of seating inside and outside. Good food in the café and restaurant. We had two rooms and both were clean and comfortable. The island is expensive overall and I felt the pricing for... More

A wonderful little hotel right across from the ferry landing on Orcas Island. The rooms were comfortable, maintaining the old vibe without the kitsch one so often finds. The best part was the staff. They were consistently wonderful
