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

If you are going to Anacortes, stay here. Great rooms, staff, and view. The proximity to the ferry makes it just that much better. Staff are friendly, rooms are comfortable, spacious, and had everything we needed. I can't imagine that there is a better place to stay in Anacortes.

Thank you for the amazing response! If I remember correctly I believe I checked you into one of our Queen rooms with a Jacuzzi! Those are my favorite type if you are looking for a spa option. Nothing better than sitting in the tub with a water view in front of you! Glad you enjoyed! Come back and see us... More

Nice outlook. Very clean facilities. Helpful staff. On-site bistro menu available. It's a 10 minute drive across town from "Old Town" where the bulk of the good restaurants are. Self-serve breakfast is early and predictable. No complaints whatsoever.

My wife and I stayed at the Anacortes Ship Harbor Inn at the start of a trip to Vancouver Island. We chose the Inn due to its close proximity to the Anacortes ferry, and the positive reviews here on TripAdvisor.

Wow VeniVidiScripsi Thank you for the kind words!

We stayed in the 2 Queen room accomodation for 2 nights in September, and had a wonderful vist in every way. I chose this location by reviewing Trip Advisor, and the fact that we wanted to take the ferry for a day trip to San Juan Island without having to use our car. The location is perfect for that, along... More

Hello Again Susan, I'm happy you and your husband were able to spend the end of your vacation with us, many of our guests use our hotel as a convenient stop before dealing with the ferry and getting over to the islands just seems to make the whole trip more relaxing when you aren't rushed to catch that last evening...
