We stayed at the hotel in celebration of our anniversary. The staff were all friendly and accommodating. The view was beautiful as the hotel is perched up above Harney channel on Orcas Island. It is located above the ferry terminal so there is lots of activity to watch. We stayed in the Killebrew room which has its own private deck... More

Our stay was great, the room was lovely, and the food was fantastic. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We were waiting for a takeout order before getting on the ferry for our return, and one woman also in line was nervous that she'd miss the ferry so she didn't wait for her food to be prepared, she left...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We stayed in the Killbrew Lake room and just fell in love with it. The Orcas Hotel is a lovely 110 year old facility with Victorian charm. The staff made us feel at home and welcome. If you are looking for a chain hotel with all of the bells and whistles,... More

For the Superbowl weekend my spouse and I planned a trip to Orcas Landing Hotel. It was originally a gift to us but we paid for an upgrade for our room we reserved the Blue Heron. The website advertised private bath, jacuzzi tub, private balcony etc., Room value $218. When we arrived to the Anacortes ferry terminal they informed us... More

The Orcas Hotel is a small, historic hotel of more than 110 years of service. Most of our guests choose our hotel for the quaint, small historic hotel environment that we enjoy with the majority of our guests. The hotel stay was a gift to these guests, they most likely did not receive our email confirmation letter that advises our... More

My Son and I frequent the San Juans due to his love of the Washington State Ferries, and all things Island. We love the Orcas Hotel for it's style and location convenient to the ferry landing. It also has incredible views of the ferries. The owner and staff are very friendly and informed us of the highpoints of the island.... More

We have stayed at the Orcas Hotel twice now, once in Jan. and recently in November 2014. We come off season to avoid the crowds that undoubtedly come to this quiet, serene island in the San Juans. Both times we found room 15 (Killebrew Lake) to be comfortable and the view beautiful. You look out the French doors over the... More

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
