This place is beautiful and nicely decorated. The scenery can't be beat but at all times of the day it sounds like there are a heard of Elephants walking around everywhere. The doors slam very loudly... but I was happy with the cleanliness of the hotel. But they should put some shelving in the bathroom or something. No counterspace to... More

Dear PHtraveler2015 Thank you for your kind review and suggestion about adding shelving in the bathrooms. We often look to our guests to assist us in making our property better. I must admit it was quite a culture shock when I moved here; getting used to the insane delays in shipping for major equipment and supplies. Thankfully, 23 days and... More

The staff was AWESOME!!! Super friendly and very helpful and professional! The rooms were very clean and the food exceptional. We really could not have asked for a better stay. There are too many to mention, but Barbara, Tyler, Willie and James definitely helped make our trip a great one

Beautiful hotel in an Alaskan tourist town! This hotel which was not booked by me, was a pleasant surprise on a business trip. The room was very spacious with a wall of windows that gave a beautiful view of the water and a wooded area close to the hotel where I watched a moose eating and bedding down! Very clean,... More

We enjoyed the staff, restaurant, cleanliness and especially the location (on top of the hill) of this hotel. The cable car ride down the mt. side to Creek Street was easy, fast and put you right into town!

Dear MaryJaned252 Thank you for your review of our hotel. Our one of a kind Funicular gets a lot of notoriety and is ultra-convenient for shopping in the summer. I will be sure to mention your review at our next staff meeting for they are the ones who deserve the acknowledgement. Thank you again for your comments. JWM-GM-CFLKA More

I always have a nice stay here. The restaurant is convenient and food excellent. Lovely atmosphere! Rooms are clean and laid out well. Easy to get to location. The price is generally competitive with other local hotels.

Dear SandyAnacortesWA Great news the engineers say the elevator is almost completely built and we are on target for install. Additionally, thank you for the kind comment about Lindsey I will make sure to acknowledge her at the next staff meeting.

Dear MrsReef, Thank you for your comments they are truly appreciated for they tell us we obviously need to work on our signage as we do indeed have ice & vending machines on the floors.
