If you pay $59 for a hotel in a premium tourist area you are at best making going to be taking a risk in some form. At the Acorn Motor Inn I was pleasantly surprised, for what it got us. Here is what you do not get: 1. Good customer service 2. A good continental breakfast However you do get:... More

I got reservations early. Nice clean and spendy. Close to vegas prices. We were moved. But we ended up in the bridal suite. Big BIG ROOM! nice jacuzzi tub. 2 tvs. Separate bedroom Very quiet. Off all rooms in 4 months including vegas this is the nicest.

My fiance and I stayed at Oak Harbor for a weekend getaway. The hotel was recently renovated in the inside, so the room was beautiful. The tv is a large flat screen tv and has free HBO. There is also a sofa, desk, fridge, and microwave. Free breakfast is included, but there is not a great variety. The room and... More

We were visiting for ten days. Suggestion, phone in for reservations for best rate. Upon arriving, the outside was definitely a motel and I was skeptical. During check in we filled out our information on an old-fashion form, which we were perfectly fine. Our original reservation was 2 queens. Mr Wang, pleasant gentlemen at front desk offered us the suite... More

We were a little skeptical at first when we saw the outside. Dated. Inside, however we were very pleased. Everything had been updated. Not just the furniture which was too large for the rooms but very nice. It looks like the rooms were taken down to the bare walls and floor. New carpet, new molding including crown, tile, fixtures, EVERYTING!... More

First night was ok. Rooms are much nicer from inside. Wish there was coffee in the room. I'm an early riser and the coffee in the lobby was old. Room was a bit crowded with furniture. Comfortable bed. Flat pillows. Very large tv for the room size. Nice place for the price.

We needed overnight lodging on Whidbey island and decided to try Acorn Motor Inn for the first time as TA reviews were generally positive. I made reservations directly with the inn via phone to avoid the web reservation surcharge. We arrived after 10pm after a full day of traveling from out of state. We unexpectedly were upgraded to a 2... More

Our room was clean and comfortable and very quiet. There was a frig in the room, but we had to go to the lobby to use the microwave there. The wifi isn't the best, but it was okay for what we use. It is very economical and for us it was worth the drive to Anacortes where we caught the... More

After much rummaging around, I managed to find this bargain-priced hotel on Whidbey Island. How cheap? We paid $69 a night. If you know the island, you know that is a low price. It had a quaint, slightly faded old-rose charm but make no mistake this is not a fancy place. The rooms are small but the furniture is vintage... More
