This property is just short of idyllic in terms of a peaceful retreat with comfy amenities. This is our second visit and my wife and I find the layout of the Bayview suites perfect in terms our our needs. She is an early riser and me, well, not so much. The separated and lowered seating area gives just enough space... More

Overpriced for quality of room and lack of amenities. Stayed in most expensive room on multiple occasions and pricing is not justified. Rooms are not well sound-proofed, no air conditioning, rooms worn, meager supplies provided. Be sure to ask before stay if hotel services (restaurant and bar) are open. We were surprised to find out they were not. Staff have... More

I wanted somewhere with amazing views and a peaceful setting. I combed the internet, paying close attention to customer reviews. I was down to Snoqualmie Falls Lodge and Outlook Inn on Orcas Island. I decided that we see the mountains everyday and the falls are beautiful, but Outlook Inn would include a ferry ride and it would be close to... More

Would come back here just to sit on the balcony again, with its gorgeous water view, but there are so many other enjoyable attractions: a spacious, charming and comfortable room with a huge bathroom, comfortable beds, friendly helpful staff, a terrific restaurant (the New Leaf), and its central location with easy walkability to everything in Eastsound. The staff monitors conditions... More

Very welcoming staff and excellent service. A really relaxing time and perfect location. Room was clean and comfortable. Restaurant was very enjoyable with great food and service. Within walking distance of all the little places to go in town.

Old tired room with stains on the carpet, no room to turn around in bathroom, sink in the bedroom area, loud noise from other guests and traffic, beds uncomfortable, wall sockets will not hold plug, power went out and DH's sleep apnea machine went off!! Stay somewhere else...do yourself a favor.

Great room, amazing price! We stayed in the "older" part of the inn, and had no issues with the shared bath - never had to wait to use it. We will be back. The New Leaf restaurant was EXCELLENT! Both the food and the service were awesome.

The rooms in the "newer" annex don't seem new at all. The rooms are like any inexpensive chain hotel. The bathroom was so small, you could only open the shower door half way before hitting the toilet, and the sink was located in the bedroom. The room smelled very mildewy when we arrived. The front desk closes at 8 pm,... More
