Islands Inn is what appears to be an older motel property that has been slightly upgraded by the owners (this is conjecture just based on appearances). It is located on a busy highway in Anacortes, just on the water, so from the parking lot (and I supposed some rooms) you have a view of one of the marinas and the... More

Who doesn't love pet friendly hotels? Even better when they are reasonably priced, optimally located and have a hot tub! This was a great place for our one night stop before taking the ferry to Orcas. The receptionist was very welcoming and accommodating. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. It was also a plus to see the 4th... More

Nice, clean rooms with a comfortable murphy bed in the spacious living room. I booked this motel for the hot tub (hot and clean) and the wine bar attached. The food was terrific, and the wine choices were perfect. Great continental breakfast with homemade honey and cream cheese spread for the toast. Friendly, gracious staff. I will stay here again!

Great room and friendly service at a modest price. Our room included a fireplace (with a free log). It was clean, very roomy and most welcome after being crammed into small rooms with no decent accommodations at 2 Washington parks. The restaurant (Petite Wine Bar & Bistro) was excellent too. No need to wander the town; just have a seat... More

My Wife and I arrived in Anacortes a day early, so we would have plenty of time to make the morning Ferry to Friday Harbor. The rate was extremely reasonable for our room. One of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. It was nice to see a classic Hotel still in business with all sorts of old school... More

My husband and I stayed at Islands Inn for 6 days. For the money, it was a nice room. The fireplace was an unexpected bonus. The hotel even supplies an easy-light log every time they clean your room. The rooms are very spacious with a nice balcony. The staff is very friendly and ready to accommodate your requests. The only... More

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Not extravagant rooms but great for the price. Family suites are very affordable w 3 beds. Breakfast was delicious with homemade w bread, muffins and boiled eggs in cute crocheted hoodies.

My husband and I were in town for a wedding. We arrived late (10-ish) and were greeted warmly by the manager. She spent time talking with us, recommending things to do in Anacortes, and marking directions on a map. The next day we drove to the top of Mt. Erie where we were able to watch a bald eagle sitting... More

The result is Islands Inn & Petite Wine Bar: a quiet, comfortable hotel with a variety of room styles to accommodate family vacations, romantic getaways, and overnight business trips, and a range of amenities to make your stay as pleasant as possible. ... more   less
