What a refreshing and helpful employee to encounter at the front desk in this day and age of feeling like we are basically "burdens" when checking in. She went out of her way to make sure we were accommodated, even so far as coming to our room to check our wi-fi reception for us, knowing it was important for our... More

The service was terrible. Some rooms have shared bathrooms, be aware, befor booking. Travelingbumps.com had story worse than mine. Outlook cafe was good though, was one of the few places to eat on Sunday morning.

Outlook Inn appears to be a very cute place to stay - we decided to take a trip to Orcas Island last minute, so we were pretty excited to find a room anywhere and by pictures of Outlook Inn we considered ourselves lucky to have found it with them...what they didn't tell us is that our room would be maybe...

Last minute trip to the islands and a corresponding last minute cancellation provided us an opportunity to stay at the historic Outlook Inn. Super friendly staff, clean and well appointed facilities. Just realize that rooms in the old beach hotel have shared baths and shower facilities. The shared facilities were clean and close by, but shared nonetheless.

This is actually my 3rd time at the Outlook inn. It's great. The food pricy but really tasty, the service is excellent and the wifi is on point. Getting a room with that sea view is magical. Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time and it's great

We enjoyed our two night stay here in the old section of the hotel. It's been awhile since I've stayed in a place without a private bath, but the ambiance, location, comfortable beds and price made it o.k. staff couldn't have been friendlier. I loved hanging out on the Adirondacks across the street and stare at Indian Island - particularly... More

I have stayed at the Outlook Inn every summer for many years when I visit our kids at camp. The service just gets better and better. Best rooms are the condos to the right of the historic inn ( if you are facing the water). The woman at the front desk was outstanding. Could not have been nicer or friendlier.... More

We stayed here in July - spacious room, with a nice balcony, view and great location. Be sure you get a room with a view. Couple pointers: If you stay here be sure to plan your meals - restaurants are not open every day, so you really need to plan your meals. It is very quiet in the morning so... More

This was our first time on Orcas Island and as I was booking everything was booked. I'm so glad because this was the best place we could have ever stayed. My Husband and I booked a suite and I didn't want to leave. Hope to go back and bring my Granddaughters as this room was awesome.

This was one of those experiences where I enjoyed the inn, but couldn't get past feeling like I'd been taken advantage of. Of course, I chose that path, but it heavily influences my overall rating of the place. The front desk was curt though generally professional, and I guess I would have expected a little more quaint courtesy. I spent... More
