We stayed at the Acorn during a very bad rain storm, and stayed in the room, most of the day, watching Netflix. To say the Acorn is clean, is an understatement. It's operating room sanitary. The furnishings in our king suite were a very good job of knock off antiques. Looking at interior construction detail, the rooms must have been... More

My family stopped for 1 night. The exterior doesnt look sharp but the interior was absolutely clean and unique. The inn is surrounded by fast food, Walmart and Safeway. The breakfast was simple and more appropriate for adults. The room was decent. We enjoyed our night.

If you like CLEAN and COMFY, stay here! BIG emphasis on CLEAN!! This is not a smoke free property, (and being an asthmatic I was concerned that it would be ok).....the smoke free rooms are all in the same area (the reverse is true for the smoking).....really Not a problem and I would be the first to "complain" if it...

We stay in many hotels and motels throughout the year and always congratulate ourselves when we discover a gem. The lovely little Acorn Inn was brilliant with freshly remodeled rooms and charming decor. Mr. Wang told us that they even replaced the ceilings and papered all the walls during renovations so there was no evidence of wear and tear whatsoever... More

Stayed here after a recommendation from family. Had been staying at the Best Western down the road, but the Acorn was a lot nicer and much cheaper! Mr Wang on reception was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were huge, clean and nicely decorated - beds very comfy. We even returned here after some time travelling and Mr Wang remembered... More

Mr. Wang confirmed our reservations promptly and followed through with an email prior our arrival. Mr. Wang's action showed he attends to details and this motel offered many attributes to provide comfort for the traveler. With free parking, clean and quiet rooms, and walking distance to grocery, pharmacy, donut, convenient stores. We were very comfortable, thank you Mr. Wang!

Walking into the room was such a surprise! The cleanliness, furnishings, continental breakfast, and tasteful decor make this the best room for the price I've ever seen. Don't let the older appearance on the outside fool you. Thanks we will be back.

This place is awesome for the price. I stay here every summer when I come through. Beds are comfy, place is clean, and the owner is friendly and helpful. I'm not sure you could find a better deal in Oak Harbor.

This was a find I just stumbled upon. Acorn is a older motor hotel however it has been newly remodeled... No smell of rancid smoke, no threadbare sheets, no stains all over the carpet and at a price equal to those dives. The owner is helpful and accommodating and the room comfortable. No pool or excercise room but hey! They... More
