Most people would not even check in if the front desk announced the power was off and not due on until after dark. We aren't most people. We quickly unpacked and headed out for our first time visit to Orcas Island. Due to the season and the weather it was remarkably uncrowded. Found a great lunch at a pub and... More

This is our second time on Orcas Island and second time hanging out at the café while we waited for our ferry home. The food and drinks are good, but what made an impression both times was the friendly nature of the staff. This time I also left my favorite scarf and thanks to their lovely staff and I am... More

We stayed here for five nights and although we loved it, there are some issues. We had the room on the third floor over looking the ferry and found it fascinating. We had a shared shower and travel a lot so we don't mind, but the hotel does have some maintenance issues. I noticed a leak in the dinning room... More

Took a recent trip up north and this was our "spurge." Don't know if it's just the "island" mentality or what, but this place didn't feel too secure at all. The back door was totally open during the day with a magnetic net the only thing keeping anyone from sneaking in. The balcony/deck outside our room wasn't private at all... More

Check-in was smooth and efficient. This is a lovely old hotel with a wealth of history and charm, although several areas were a little warn and tired, and needed maintenance to bring them back to their former glory days. E.g. the wall mounted power sockets in our room were all loose. Our room featured a classic old style queen bed,... More

We stayed for one night and had a room with a balcony overlooking the harbour. What a lovely spot to stay looking over the harbour right near the ferry terminal and i could highly recommend it. The rooms are a bit old fashioned but I think that is how it is supposed to be. Just a few things to be... More

The Hotel is lovely, the staff was wonderful, the shared bathrooms were kept immaculately clean. The bed was comfortable, and the room was nicely, if modestly, appointed. I even enjoyed the ferries' foghorns as they approached the dock below the hotel. Unfortunately the noise from the kitchen, a 7 a.m. delivery truck backing up, lowering its metal ramp and offloading... More

This is sort of quaint, like visiting your aunts Victorian house several decades ago. Private bath does not include your own shower! And you are paying over $180 a night. It is kind of interesting to watch the ferries arrive right across the street and they are quiet, but this isn't the most interesting part of the island.

Stayed here with a friend in June, and they upgraded us to one of their nicest rooms. It had a balcony overlooking the water and a beautiful stained glass window. The service was great, and the location right by the ferry was nice. The hotel itself is in a beautiful historic building and its easy driving distance to all that... More

Septacular view of Ferry and other boat activity, great prices, friendly staff, savory food, close to the landing and an exceptional local supermarket with super fresh meats, vegetables and fish. It just smells fresh.
