Lived on Whidbey as a child and was familiar with the property but never stayed here. The rooms were huge, very clean, recently upgraded (I assume) and close to anything you need. Lovely outdoor area with nice flowers and vines lining the front of the hotel and the balcony - it is a wonderful place to stay. Across the street... More

Nice non-chain property in small town of Freeland. Rooms were OK, other guests appeared to be contractors working in the area judging by the trucks in parking lot. Hotel was well kept up but dated, however the price was right and location was great, service was great.

Stayed here a couple of times when visiting Whidbey Island. Conveniently located on South end of island. Sort of pricey, but probably comparable to other lodging on island. The rooms seemed like they were updated in last couple of years. Clean and comfortable. No complaints. Pretty friendly customer service.

The counter people are friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the location is excellent. This motel is close to an amazing dog friendly beach. The rates are high for the shabby 1970's interior and no air conditioner. Yes, you absolutely need air conditioner in the summer months. In the last couple of years they had more 80... More

This well-run motel in the town of Freeland on the southern part of Whidbey Island is the type of accommodation that you are always happy to find while traveling. My wife and I have stayed here several times while visiting our son and his family. Manager Sabrina Holmes has done an outstanding job of furnishing the rooms with items that... More

My sister and I were looking for an expensive place near the water on Whidbey. We brought two dogs and wanted a place near where they could play on the beach. Harbor Inn was perfect! We were within two miles of Double Bluff Beach where dogs can run off-leash and dig in the sand. The motel was easy to find,... More

We found Harbor Inn looking for a cheap place to stay 3 nights. We reserved a single queen bed and were so surprised at the size of the room! It was more like a suite. They advertise monthly rates and it would not be that difficult due to the size, and comfort of this room and all the drawer space.... More

Had to stay at this hotel for a recent work trip. The price was right and the room was very large with a queen bed for my husband and I and a pull out for our son. However we never did pull out the pullout because there was a note on it that said if you pull it out to... More

We are puzzled by your comments and by the fact that you didn't notify the front desk or request a room change? In 12 years of ownership we have never had a complaint about fowl odor in any of our guest rooms; however, we do take your complaint seriously and will inspect regularly for any reoccurrence. Regarding your bold statement,... More

Located just off the main highway on the island, the property is a traditional motel type lodging with outside corridors and enormous rooms. TV with a few channels, microwave, mini-fridge & coffee maker. Spotless, immaculate bathroom with all the amenities, huge supermarket directly across the street, nice friendly cafe (with separate bar) up the street (The Freeland Cafe). I stayed... More
