Our Bay View Suite room was clean but had a motel feel to it with tired carpet, linoleum floored bathroom, and nondescript furniture. The view and patio were lovely, though. The television service was poor for most of the weekend--the maintenance person was first unavailable and then unable to do repairs. We definitely appreciated the tips to booking our ferries...

My two over 20-year old children and I loved The Outlook Inn. We had seriously considered other places but chose town so that everyone could do his own thing. We had two great meals at The Outlook and ventured out to The Rosario Resort for dinner as well (we had considered staying there but thought it looked tired). It's fun... More

Spent a perfect weekend on Orcas at the Outlook Inn. We stayed in a bay view suite, and had an amazing view - I loved having coffee in the morning and enjoying the scenery from the window. The suite was very roomy and everything looked very new. It included a fireplace which was nice for a chilly evening, and the... More

Spacious, well maintained room with awesome water view and easy walk to everything in the village of East Sound. We love Orcas Island and staying at the Outlook Inn is an easy choice due to location and accommodations. The bed is oh so comfortable.

I selected the Outlook Inn for my visit to Orcas Island primarily because of its water views (from select rooms) and proximity to Eastsound's restaurants, shops, and attractions. Recognizing that I was visiting in the shoulder season (before Memorial Day), I expected some businesses to be operating on a non-peak schedule. The Inn's restaurant was open Thursday-Monday for dinner and... More

Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Great Main St location. We stayed in a room with two double beds and bathroom. Room had comfortable seating and window seat. Easy to walk right into town. Friendly front desk staff.

Outlook Inn is a piece of Orcas Island History. I only wanted a room and that is what I got . . . with a beautiful view of the Sound and part of the Island out my window. Good Staff Restaurant was closed.

We stayed with a number of other folks for a wedding recently. While my wife and I couldn't get a king bed, both of us enjoyed the incredibly comfortable double beds in our ensuite room. The bathroom was pretty small, but was redone really tastefully somewhat recently -- only complaint was that it was impossible to turn the light on... More

My wife and I stayed at the Outlook Inn last weekend and had a marvelous experience! First, the location of the hotel enjoys the catbird seat of Eastsound village, looking directly over to Indian Island--which can be walked to during low tide about 40 days a year--the beach across the road offers a quick taste of island nature. The Eastsound... More

I'm absolutely amazed by my experience here. This hotel has been here for over 120 years. Yes, some of it is that old. They have made all of the rooms cozy and welcoming. The older section is like visiting your favorite grandmothers home and the newer portion is both romantic and luxurious. Virtually across the street from the head of... More
