I stayed at this motel for a third time in July 2014 - was in town for a horse event. It's scrupulously clean and comfortable, and the furnishings and bathroom fixtures are MUCH nicer than you would expect for a mom & pop motel (i.e., granite countertops, marble-topped furniture). It's centrally located on Whidbey, an easy drive to all attractions,... More

I am frankly surprised by the many very favorable reviews of this motel. We stayed in early August - and it was kind of a last resort for us, as many other places were booked. The Good: Very clean room. Functional A/C (although blocked by furniture) and free, high-speed WiFi. The rates are reasonable and budget friendly. The highlight in... More

Want to be ripped off? Then this is your place. The owner will chastise you for not calling to make a reservation, as though this was 1993. He will explain why he is charging you 8 bucks for online reservations, but then he will add a 12% tax on top of your room AND the fee. Basically you will pay... More

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
