We've been staying at the Ship Harbor Inn for years. Almost always as a pit stop for catching the ferry to San Juan Island the next morning. The property has always had friendly staff, very affordable rooms, and a pet-friendly policy. Throw in a hearty breakfast and the value has always been here. Of note is the very positive changes...

Found Ship Harbor Inn online and booked a long weekend stay due to it's high ratings and good price. We hadn't even arrived yet before we knew we were in good hands. We had ordered the Romance Package which included Chocolates, and I emailed them a few days before to see if they had Gluten Free chocolate options. Dan was... More

We've stayed here a number of times, trying to get home to the San Juan Islands but missing the ferry due to flight or traffic delays. They are unfailingly nice, with clean rooms with refrigerator, microwave, and Keurig coffee maker. Breakfast included, and they have a latte bar and regular bar as well. Right next to the ferry. If you... More

I followed the reviews and I hit gold during our stay. I'm picky with hotels and Ship Harbor Inn exceeded my expectations. We stayed at room #46, two-bedroom corner spot. Very clean, quiet, excellent wifi connection, ok continental brkfst + waffles. Awesome staff, great atmosphere. Will definitely stay here again!

Being in Anacortes for work, my contact selected the property for me, but I have to say that I was delighted with the inn. The room was comfortable and clean, and we had a nice view of the water and the harbour below. Breakfast included make-your-own waffles and hard-boiled eggs -- so nice to have some protein as well as... More

Greetings Wanderweggeist, I'm glad we were able to have you on your business trip, quite a few of our repeat guests end up staying here on business and coming back during the summer with their family and friends after they see how amazing the area is here. With multiple state parks, whale watching, island tours and being just a small... More

Living on a small WA state island serviced by the ferries from Anacortes, I have stayed at many motels in Anacortes. I hesitate to write this review because I do not want the Ship Harbor Inn to get so popular that it loses that which I love about it! Sited above the ferry landing, it seems more like a travel...
