This hotel is not fancy and maybe a little bit dated but wow it was great in all the ways that mattered! It was clean. The bed was comforable. Some rooms have A/C but mine didn't. It wasn't ever a problem as I could open the doors for a few minutes and get a "flow thru" breeze when I needed... More

The Islands Inn is a great stay for folks visiting the San Juans or traveling through. The owner and staff are very attentive in the best possible way, the accommodations are clean and comfortable, the location very convenient and even though it has a motel style build, the nights are super quiet and blissfully dark. The best part of it... More

We stayed here after taking the ferry to Orcas Island for my daughters 18 birthday. Check in was fast and the desk clerk was very accommodating. They were out of two queen bed rooms so she upgraded us to a family room. The hotel is older but very well taken care of. Outside entryway but still quiet. Inside the room... More

We stayed one night in late September, during the boat show. Check in was very pleasant and we were offered a king room as an upgrade. This room had a fireplace which was nice, but when we entered the room the first thing we noticed was a very strong smoky smell. The front desk gave us some keys to check... More

We stumbled upon this hotel on trip advisor and other sites, and were VERY glad we chose this hotel. Right at the entrance to Anacortes, and on the main street, it's convenient location is only the first plus. The room decor was a little bit dated, but very clean and the fireplace is a very nice touch. The service was... More

Islands Inn is a great choice for a budget hotel. You get a very clean, spacious room, good breakfast ( they bake their own bread and muffins fresh every morning, the coffee is good too).The location is very convenient, it's the first hotel as you get into town, coming from the main road. The staff is very friendly, they are... More

Islands Inn is a great budget hotel option in Anacortes. Don't expect anything fancy, but this will work for a short stay. The staff is friendly and helpful and they have a great free breakfast! The rooms are simple and clean and the hotel is conviently located in downtown Anacortes. We will be back.

I have stayed several times at the Islands inn and will gladly stay there again. The motel is very clean, even the pool area seemed clean. The breakfast is much better than average. The selection is similar to other motels (breads, cereal, yogurt, eggs, etc.) but the quality is much better. They have home made granola which is very good... More

My friend and I decided to take a couple of days away from the bustle of big city life in August. After reading the reviews for Islands Inn we booked it. The rate was $79 for a room with 2 double beds, breakfast included. We were very pleasantly greeted and helped with maps of the many beautiful parks and lakes... More

Islands Inn is a delightful surprise and the perfect place to spend the night if planning to take the morning ferry to Sidney, B.C. It is very convenient and a most comfortable cheery place to stay, some rooms having a view toward the bay. It is a really good value having many amenities a 4****motel would have, is very clean...
