The Anacortes Ship Harbor is a walk uphill from the Anacortes ferry. Lovely spot but not within walking distance of other places to do things. If you sleep with windows open you will hear other guests and the ships, but it is a beautiful spot. The food is fine, if a little pricey, good soup. The breakfast is pretty much... More

Thank you for the kind review Monica B! Yes we are located only about 1/3 of a mile from the ferry terminal. Our guests love to use The Ship Harbor Inn as their base of operations so to speak as they visit the San Juan Islands. Sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy breakfast we are constantly working on improving... More

I was traveling up the coast from San Francisco to Seattle with no plans and decided to meet a friend (from Bellingham, WA) in Anacostes. A quick look in TripAdvisor led to a phone call from a downtown parking lot and finding a last minute room. I was just grateful to find a room! But once I arrived, I knew... More

Many of our guests find themselves here late after missing a ferry when that happens you can count on us to get you through the night, with an on site Bar, Bistro and Espresso bar we have everything you need and want....

Our family of four stayed at the Ship Harbor Inn for two nights and I wish we stayed longer. Linda and Christine were wonderfully welcoming and went above and beyond the call of duty by getting balloons for my daughter's birthday and even wrapping a present for her that arrived by post to the hotel. They were also a font... More

Love this experience. Great food. Really good espresso, very clean and the couple that owns the place are top notch! Very helpful in directing us to our excursions. Very accommodating. Would love to go back.

I’m pleased you enjoyed your time with us. Isnt the espresso amazing? I have worked at quite a few coffee shops and have never encountered such a rich full flavored espresso without that bitter after taste. A very knowledgeable woman out on Samish Island roasts it for us and we take a lot of pride in crafting the perfect beverage.... More

My family of four stayed at the Ship Harbor Inn based on the recommendation of a family member while we were in the area for a salmon-fishing charter. The staff at the hotel treated us like we were old family friends. The room was very clean and offered an amazing view of the harbor. This place is out of town... More

When the airporter let us out at the hotel, I was pretty sure my husband had picked the Bates motel! But the airporter shuttle let us out passed the office of this very charming hotel. It is more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel. After traveling all day in planes and shuttles, we loved the very well manicured... More

The spiffy upgrade of this sprawling property has almost made it into a resort. Bar/ espresso bar in lobby, nice breakfast with waffle bar, complimentary wine hour,lawns, view of harbor, units with kitchenettes, fireplaces and jacuzzis. Plus a great staff. Nicely priced, too.

I was road tripping through Washington with my dad, and we wanted to visit Friday Harbor for a day and not bring our car...this place was perfect. Here is the rundown: Location: A 5 minute walk to the ferry. We left our car behind and walked on to the ferry which was fast, east and convenient. The lines for the... More

If you want to spend $150 a night for a view go for it. Otherwise, don't. The room was so small could barely turn around-----one queen bed, one nightstand. If it had not been for the refrigerator and microwave I would have thought I was in Motel 6. Breakfast was nothing to brag about----typical continental, everything cold. Great view, though!
