Awesome experience in Anacortes WA. Needed to catch early ferry so hubby and I decided to stay the night before. What a nice surprise, Room was spotless,nice view of water and ferries as they passed by. The hotel is doing major remodeling building a large fire place with heaters and patio. The breakfast room is warm and waiting for you... 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

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...

We drove from California to Washington. We had reservations at Anacortes Ship Harbor Inn, and stayed two days before boarding the ferry to Victoria. The staff was very friendly and helpful with finding places to eat. Our room was lovely with a beautiful view of the harbor. It was clean and perfect for our two days. I would not hestiate... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Ship Harbor! We had planned to stay for one night, take the ferry to Friday Harbor and then go on our way. The staff helped us with our plans, explained how the ferry system worked and talked us into staying another night. We were so glad they did. When we returned from a raw,... More

Greetings Janet! I’m glad we could assist you in your travels. Many of our guests enjoy using the Ship Harbor Inn as their home base and jump off on to the different islands. When walking to the ferry is an option it is so much easier and cost effective! Anacortes having significantly lower rainfall than surrounding area’s usually gives us... More

This is clean, friendly, quiet place to stay. The staff is very helpful and the rooms are very nice. A couple miles outside of town, overlooking the ferry terminal. Couple miles from the inn is Washington Park which has beautiful walk along the Sound overlooking the islands. This is a great place for a couples getaway.

Hello again SC B, I'm elated to hear that you had a good experience with us again! We are just under a mile away from beautiful washington park which offers a scenic loop road around the park. Surrounded by water on 3 sides makes it the perfect place to take a picnic or simply see the sights. Nothing better than... More

I stumbled upon this hidden gem in a last minute booking. The staff were extremely accommodating and let me check in early. Room service with wine and delicious turkey sandwich was a treat! There's free WiFi too, which was good since I couldn't get service. I couldn't get enough of the beautiful views. So stunning! I only stayed one night... More

Thank you for stumbling upon us Suzy K! We like to joke that we are the resort you didn't know you were staying at. We always try to accommodate early check in's if possible and I'm glad you got to try out our bistro menu, we have just changed it up to include some winter favorites. We hope to have... More

We live in the San Juans and frequently travel by this property, but have never even thought of staying here. We finally had the need to stay on the mainland, and chose the Hilltop cabin and it was just adorable. Great view, tiny and well appointed cabin. It was clean, bedding was quite nice, and there is a cute little... More

Greetings poppiesyarn! I'm glad you were able to stop by on your journey to the islands. The stand alone Hilltop cabin is perfect for singles or couples that might want some additional privacy while still having all the hotel amenities. We like to let everyone know that we are not a typical hotel property as we sit on 6 acres... More
