We were desperate & needed a place to stay overnight to catch the first ferry to Friday Harbor. It's high season so nothing was available in Anacortes or pay over $200 to stay in Bellingham or nearby towns. We arrived at 6:30pm; quick check-in then off Mt Erie & dinner; we got back at 9:30 to rest for the night.... More

This was the most discussing place I have ever seen! They told us the cleaners had quit. That was for sure the place hadn't been cleaned in months. The beds where hard and the pillows thin, we slept with our clothes on, on top of the covers. The carpet was discussing with stains everywhere, good thing we had black socks.... More

If you like poop in your bath tub, toilets that don't flush, Internet that doesn't work, sheets that smell of urine, bugs, and NO refund after discovering these things. This is the place for you! The hotel is an absolute DIVE with graffiti on the walls. Doors require assistance from a second person to open, just an aweful aweful place!... More

First we were given the wrong room number and frightened some lady by trying to unlock her door. Then, the room was FILTHY. There was something (feces?) on the bedspread, dead bugs on the floor, smears of Lord knows what on the walls, crumbs in the kitchenette, and we had to take the back of the toilet off to flush...

Stay aware from this place! We were given room 40 on third floor. Room smelled of a disgusting pet odor and carpet was about 5 different pieces and not even tacked down. About 10 feet of plastic molding was peeled from the wall and hanging down onto the floor. I don't know why we didn't leave then, but we asked... More

No air conditioning.The room was dirty.Not just dirty but filthy.I would never recommend this place to anyone.Two televisions in the room with only one working remote. As soon as you opened the door to the room you were hit with a horrible smell.

We stayed here in May while attending our family reunion in LaConner because all other hotels were full since it was Tulip Festival season. We booked through Price Line and it looked good online. The person who had answered my call prior to making the reservation had told us on the phone that the water would be warm and they... More

Booked two nights online with Booking.com. Site said there'd be no charge to card until we reached motel. Upon arrival told our room was never reserved and it was Booking's fault. Said no charges would be made to card, nor had been made. Found a great place to stay (Anacortes Inn) and when we got home two charges were found... More

Most disgusting place I ever had to stay in my life. The first room I was given smelled awful and apparently the management knew this because the window was wide open in an attempt to air it out (wonderful to walk into in Dec. when it was 30° out) and the toilet was broken. I was given a second room... More
