Stayed at Tides Inn for 3 nights and was very pleased. The room was comfortable with AC and that is not usual in that part of the world. Room was clean and very comfortable and staff was super friendly. Would recommend and stay again. It was a good stay.

This is the best place to stay in town. I had to get on the wait list for Mayfest, but they got me in! I love that this is a family run place. They are so sweet and accommodating. The complementary breakfast is pretty good, especially when they make their gravy! They always have coffee available. I like to visit... More

Early check inn and gave a discounted rate. Very friendly and accommodating with transportation to ferry and good breakfast. Also easy to walk everywhere in town. Gave us the only fan available in the hotel during a hot spell.

This is a nice hotel for the area: friendly staff, comfortable beds, rooms are clean. Good breakfast was a bonus! Would definitely stay here again. Walking distance to everything in town because it is pretty small to begin with. Whale watching station in walking distance - maybe a mile away. Only stayed two nights on the way to a fishing...

In all my trips to Petersburg I had never stayed here, my mistake. Turns out this is a very nice place to stay. Nice clean well appointed rooms with heat, AC, mini fridge and a microwave. Continental breakfast to include waffles. Very friendly staff always willing to help out.

It has always been a great place to stay. Both times I have visited hotel this year the hotel has been very helpful. The rooms are great and beds were comfortable. Guest services are the best I've seen for a remote get-away place. Best thing about this hotel is you can also rent a car from the front desk to... More

Loved how friendly everyone was! Great location and the breakfast was a nice touch that brought guests together to chat about all their activities and adventures. Shay at the FD even lent me her bear spray and bell for my morning hike!

I stayed here multiple nights on a visit to Petersburg in June and August 2014 for a NOLS sea kayak trip. The room was very comfortable and clean. The facilities and wifi was excellent, just what was needed. The location is great! It's off the Main Street but a short walk to the shops, cafes and restaurants. It's also a... More

No other choice as this is the only hotel in Petersburg! Breakfast room is very old fashioned with a very limited selection of items. No waffle maker which was broken and sitting atop an old refrigerator. No Coffee in room at all. Had to ask for a hair dryer from the front desk, which was also old and smelly when... More

I reserved this hotel for a business trip and couldn't be angrier. I had flown in from Buffalo, NY for two days of work at a local business. As I have hotel reservations in hand, I was informed that they overbooked and could not give me a room. This is prime fishing season, and rooms are not plentiful. I figured... More
