The room was nice. We stayed on the ground floor and the view was amazing! My husband and I frequently stay at these types of inns/B and B's and were a bit disappointed in a few things. For the price we paid (in the off season!), I was expecting some nice toiletries (I've had better at the Holiday Inn) and... More

Overall this was a great place. Clean, high quality sheets and towels (though you only get two), comfortable room. We stayed in a room with a fireplace and jacuzzi bath. The biggest drawback for us was that we paid more for this feature yet weren't able to enjoy it. The first night because the drain was complicated and we had... More

We stayed here a few days ago. Our room was a few feet from the water with a beautiful view of Gig Harbor...amazing! Karen, the manager, was very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and exceptionally clean.

What a lovely place! Pure by chance we found this very charming Inn in the absolute ideal location. We were greeted, first by e-mail and later in person, by Karen who was very nice and helpful. The Inn itself, an old family home is full of atmosphere and charm. The rooms are nice and spacious and the beds are comfortable.... More

My husband and I spent two nights here last year. We felt it deserved another visit exactly one year later! Karen, the new inn keeper is an absolute delight! We enjoyed chatting with her and learning more about Gig Harbor! She was very responsive to our few concerns! We had the same room as last.....the Boathouse, which is one of... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Waterfront Inn and Gig Harbor. It was simply wonderful. We stayed in the room called 'Lookout', but we got to see three other rooms in the Inn. All were lovely. Lookout has a very comfortable king bed and several windows, one of which faces the water. We ran the air conditioner... More

I thought this was somewhat expensive at $169 a night but it was summer and Gig Harbor is a great town to roam around in. I had the Quartermaster room with a partial (on the plus side of partial) harbor view that was clean, quaint and quite adequate. The room had a coffee maker and refrigerator. Anthony's Home Port (best... More

We really enjoyed the furniture and deck as a relaxing place to take in the harbor and mountains. This must be the best location on the Harbor. However I would not pay these prices to stay in a place like this anywhere else. First, parking is a challenge with a very steep driveway to schlep your stuff to the lower... More

We really enjoyed our stay as the best waterfront view you could ask for. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and worth the value. We would definitely stay there again. The only concern is that it would be nice to have room darkening curtains. The other was a bit strange... The only soap we had available was in a white... More

The best part of the Inn is its location, in more ways than one. Being right on the water with a very nice deck and also a dock with kayaks available was just what we were looking for after a warm afternoon ride into Gig Harbor. We used one of their kayaks to paddle around the harbor for a bit... More
