this place is a treasure for the traveler-not all the sound deadening and perks of a chain hotel-but then that is it,isn"t it. it is real and quiet and personable and clean and concientious-just like you would do if you were running a hotel on a quiet island in the san juans.....

Recently stayed at the Outlook Inn with my girlfriend just before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. From the start at check-in we were treated by a friendly staff, a clean room, and some great recommendations for activities and restaurants on the island. I will say that from reading others reviews we decided to book one of their top tier rooms in... More

The Outlook Inn has so much character and charm. It is an older Inn and other than the need for a few updating touches, it is a very comfortable place to spend the night. My husband and I stayed in an affordable room in the Main building. We had to share the bathroom and shower, located just steps from our... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Outlook Inn. We were in a Bay View Suite with Double Jacuzzi Tub and it was absolutely amazing. There was even a bottle of Cava (sparkling wine) waiting for us when we arrived. The staff was incredibly helpful, the food in the restaurant was great, and the views were picture-perfect. We...

My sister and I stayed at the Outlook Inn on Orcas Island. We really liked the island and the inn was a great location. We liked our room which was not in the main building. The staff was very helpful. We arrived early and they let us change our clothes and store our luggage until our room was ready. They... More

Very helpful and accommodating staff; they went the extra mile to make sure everything was up to par. I stayed in room 14, which is in the back of the main building. The room was extremely clean and even had a comfy overstuffed chair w/ottoman, which I used every time I came back to the room! Had to share a... More

My husband and i chose the outlook for our honeymoon and booked the bay view suite. The room was breathtaking! The view, the fireplace, the jacuzzi tub for 2, the balcony, everything was perfect! What really topped it off was the amazing staff! Griffin, at the front desk told us how excited she was that we chose the outlook for... More

Stayed last August. We booked last minute so our choices were limited. We got a water view suite but definitely paid for it. In the new wing. Very nice room, small kitchenette, small sitting area, large bathroom.

Stayed in room 42 of bay view suites and was not impressed. We might have had a bay view if it wasn't for some overgrown sickly looking bushes blocking our view. If your going to make the view your selling point you might want to trim some hedges and trees! Room was old and shabby, in need of deep cleaning,... More

The room we booked was described as a Luxury Bay View Room. It was neither of these things. View would have been beautiful only we couldn't see it as there are huge round bushes outside of the window blocking it. The room (no.44) looked like it had once had flood damage. Fireplace and bathroom were very basic, tatty and old.... More
