I grew up near a military base in the 70s and 80s, and it seemed as if all of my military brat friends had *something* decorating their house that their dad brought back from his tour of duty in Korea -- a rug, a blanket, a couch, a table -- usually some kind of furniture. I flashed back to this... More

Good and bad with our stay here. Room was actually ok. Tiled shower; updated furniture and comfortable bed. Walls are very thin. A lot of going in and out a side door which was very noisy and propped open. We tried un-propping it and it would just be propped open again. Loud talking along w the door banging. Girls nice...

Was a decent location. Our room was on the main floor backside away from main street so it was quiet as far as traffic. Like most places opening and closing doors can be loud. Some construction guys were in and out a lot that night and don't know how to shut a door quietly. Room was clean and bed was... More

This place is GREAT!!! Admittedly I would of never picked it if it weren't for all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. The exterior is shabby, but don't judge the book by it's cover!!! The rooms are a bit 'dated' but still spacious and WOW, what excellent prices they have!! A word of warning: DO NOT book online, you will be... More

The Acorn was recommended to us by a local for being clean and reasonable and walking distance to food and basic shopping. We found it to all be true but with the amenities being better than the norm. The rooms are nicely furnished not using normal hotel stuff, a decent continental breakfast was available. We met the owner who is... More

We had two nights here, accommodation was difficult to find. We were very happy with our room, clean and comfortable, although a little dark and dated. Helpful staff. Very well priced. No hairdryer in the room but asked at the desk and it was no problem to get one. Breakfast was basic but all we needed to start our day.

Not much to look at from the front (dated) but a great location central to everything Oak Harbor has to offer. A really nice clean updated room beautiful furniture and the bed was uber comfortable. As per the other reviews the breakfast sucked and the coffee was of poor quality. The real problem was when we showed up without booking... More

This is a nice, clean hotel with personable and polite staff. After driving across country, we didn't know what to expect, but were delighted with the condition of the room, climate control. and maid service. The only reason I didn't rate it a "5" is the the free breakfast consisted of muffins in a rubbermaid container and orange juice in... More

My husband is working in the area and his company rented this for him. Our son and I came up and stayed for a week with him for a little vacation. This isn't a review of the main part of the hotel, the 6 bungalow suites directly in back also belong to the Acorn Inn and that's where we stayed.... More
