We had a fireplace room which was really nice but smaller than it looked online. The room was clean and comfortable and had an ok view. However the bathroom is extremely tiny. The restaurant had good food and the waitress was nice and helpful. While we were eating I got excited when I seen a lady go to clean out... More

We stayed here overnight, splurged and got a suite. Very affordable. Although reminiscent of the 80s (which I'm an 80sphile so I loved it), it was comfortable and cozy. The clerk was amazingly friendly and nice, full of suggestions of where to go, The coffee was great. We didn't eat at the bistro, but it sounded good. THE BEST PART... More

Reasonably priced motel. Very clean and quiet even though located on the main street (rooms are located at the back with very little street noise). Bed was very comfortable and I discovered that the sleeping real estate offered by a King bed is priceless when you have a dog! :) Enjoyed being able to take our dog for only $10... More

Room was clean, but best of all was the good quality of sleep. We spent two weekend nights there, and the motel was packed, but we didn't hear any noise and slept solidly. Pretty rare in a motel! Night staff was helpful and attentive. The owner was present in the morning, urging everyone to try her fresh baked bread. Very... More

We recently visited Anacortes and stayed at the Islands Inn for 2 nights-very quaint Inn! Rooms are a little old fashioned and could use a little update but very clean and nice. Wonderful continental breakfast with some extras-hard or soft boiled eggs to order. Great coffee and tea. The desk staff is great and make it a joy to stay... More

We came to Anacortes just for a whale watching trip (which was awesome as well) and decided to stay there for the night on short notice. From our first walk into the lobby we were more then impressed. The overly friendly and very helpful front desk lady (unfortunatley I forgot her name, well she worked on the evening of Saturday...

We chose this place because it was pet-friendly. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room based on the price of the room. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. The woman that took our initial reservation was so nice in making suggestions for things to do in the area. The breakfast, although not outstanding, was adequate.... More

This place is a typical motel style with 2 floors and access from the outside. I chose it because it has a pet friendly room, and was reasonably priced. The only thing I didn't like was that room has the stairwell to the upstairs attached to the outside wall, so all night we heard and felt the thumping of heavy... More

We wanted to spend some time in Anacortes, WA but reserved too late; Islands Inn was the only thing we could find for the two-day period we were there. It's old and shabby; has doors to the outside rather than inside a building. Although they keep it clean, the carpets look grimy and the bathroom fixtures are cracked and outdated.... More

Rooms are reasonably priced (especially the Family style rooms) and clean and comfortable, but are nothing special. Good value for the money. Very friendly staff. I would stay here again given the overall options in Anacortes.

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
