First time staying at the Ship Harbor Inn - and we weren't disappointed. It isn't anything flashy, but the rooms are very clean, the beds are extremely comfortable, and having a balcony with a view of the water was great. Also appreciated was the outdoor patio space with a fireplace/heaters. And the staff were very welcoming and helpful. We will... More

This place is a jewel. The view from our room, 41, was amazing. I could lie in bed and watch the ferries come and go. We saw eagles and herons overhead. We woke to the gentle sound of fog horns. Other tan that, the room was completely quiet . The bedding was great, complete with 5 soft pillows. The room... More

Thank you Anacortesnow, I'm glad you enjoyed the room and wildlife, many of our guests enjoy not being in another concrete jungle. Surrounded by 6 acres we have the perfect place to sit back relax and enjoy the scenery. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. More

This is our 3rd or 4th time over the past 6 years staying here. We come to Anacortes a lot. They are a great choice, however they are one of the priciest in Anacortes. The location is great for peace and quiet, and being away from town and close to the SJ islands ferry terminal. The rooms are old, but... More

Wow thank you for the kind words, We love to hear back especially since you have seen the dramatic changes here. Being the only hotel on this side of our little island it certainly makes it an ideal location if you are taking the ferry. I'd like to apologize for the drying not working correctly we take problems like that... More

My husband and I stayed in a room with a fireplace, great big jetted tub and an awesome view of the water with ferries coming and going. The room itself is BIG. The furnishings and carpet are all new. We made coffee in our room while watching the morning news on the big screen TV. They also have a charming... More

Wow that's amazing. We love to recommend that people stay here and use it as a base camp while exploring the islands. People will avoid the high island prices and simply ferry hop to Friday Harbor , Orcas Island and Lopez. It certainly makes it a more relaxing when you don't have to wait in those extreme lines to get... More

My wife and I have bypassed this gem for too long. Several of our friends enjoyed staying here, sometimes because they didn't make the Anacortes-Friday Harbor ferry, and sometimes just because they could. We finally stayed here on the way home to Friday Harbor and were pleasantly surprised. We had a GREAT full water view (38) king suite with gas... More

I need to see more of Anacortes, but so far Ship Harbor Inn was a wonderful stay. They are situated very close to the ferry terminal and it's relaxing to look at the water and ferry in the morning. I overheard the manager telling another guest that they can drive their car over to line up in the morning and... More

Our stay here couldn't be better. The view was beautiful and our room was at the end, so it ended up being really private and quite. The room was great, the fireplace and double headed shower was amazing. We did have a miscommunication when reserving the room, but the staff was great and accommodating to what we needed and even...

My wife & I were going to visit Friday Harbor, departing on the ferry from Anacortes, & wanted a place to stay close to the ferry boat so we could get a good night's sleep and still catch an early ferry. I initially read about this Inn on TripAdvisor and decided to try it. We couldn't have been any happier.... More

Greetings Werner, I believe I checked you and your wife in myself actually.
