Overall a good place to stay. The room we stayed in wasn't quite as nice as the pictures suggest and there were a few weird things (not show stoppers - such as a mini-fridge next to the toilet in the bathroom). Overall we had a comfortable bed and the staff was great! Dog friendly too!

We keep a boat in Anacortes so visit often before casting off. One or both of us has stayed at Islands Inn probably 10 times. This is not really an inn - it's an older2-story motel owned and managed by Dutch-born interests, fixed up with hospitable touches such as well-tended landscape plantings, flowers in pots, an afternoon wine bar with...

It's clean and it's close to Deception Pass State Park. The owner is very friendly and if you have a reasonable dog you can bring it. My husband and I like the Petite Wine Bar and the two glasses of wine and salmon pate upon arrival. (Comes with a deal). We stayed in Room 212 which was quite large and... More

This is an older building but was clean and reasonably priced. The hotel needs to come into the internet age. You have to call or e mail to make a reservation. This turned me off but I did it anyway. Also the wi fi in our room didn't work. They gave me a cord at the front desk, and it... More

We just finished our third visit to Islands Inn. The attention to detail and the courtesy with which they accommodated our mobility issues was wonderful. The best hotel breakfast in my experience features fresh baked bread.

Stayed just one night here last week on our way to Friday Harbor because of a Groupon deal and have to say what a great find this place was. Funky older motor motel turned modern day comfy. Great location on the main drag towards town. Nice big room (#222) with a blacony out back looking towards the water and the... More

My husband and I got a great deal for this place on Groupon. Two nights in a Fireplace room for $89, which included two desserts and two glasses of port at the wine bar. Although the place looks like a motel on the outside, it is much cuter inside. The tv is a nice flat screen, the room clean, bathroom... More

We really liked this Inn. Our room (Executive King Suite) was suitable. Very large space with a comfortable couch and loveseat in front of the fireplace (Duralogs provided), table and chairs and even a jacuzzi jetted bathtub. The morning offering for breakfast was charming. We had wine and appetizers our first evening and the wines were both very nice and... More

This is a very nice, clean motel. Staff were friendly and helpful. It's a bit far from the downtown but there seemed to be a nice restaurant onsite. We had a drink there but other people's food looked lovely and they seemed to be enjoying it.
