This remodeled hotel is great, we actually had 1/2 of a duplex house as our room. It had everything and would be a fabulous place for a family to stay. The owner takes great care of his facility. You can smoke outside but be careful to not place your exhausted pack or butts of cigarettes in the ash trays.

Our family of 5 (Teens x 3) decided only 3 days before on a Whidbey Island vacation trip and so we relied on Tripadvisor for guidance. The Acorn Motor Inn had outstanding & positive reviews and we were not disappointed. The rooms were newly renovated, clean, quite & comfortable. Gary, the owner and his team were truly hospitable and accomodating.... More

I chose this motel based upon other TripAdvisor recommendations and even then, it really exceeded my expectations. My room was completely remodeled, with a huge flat screen TV, and the decorating was much more upscale than I expected, complete with nice touches you don't expect at this type of property, like real glassware instead of cheap plastic cups. I was... More

The perfect location, right across from Safeway, strip malls and many restaurants. Staff is friendly and incredibly helpful. The place is clean, very reasonable and comfortable. We couldn't have been happier! We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this place if you're in town!

We chose Acorn Motor Inn as lodging based on reviews and price. We weren't disappointed. The room was not the typical hotel/motel room: oriental style linens, drapes and chairs; huge TV on the wall; tile in the bathroom. Very quiet place to sleep and comfortable beds. The breakfast was very plain, but oh well. We grabbed an English muffin and... More

We booked into the Acorn Motor Inn looking for affordability, based on other recommendations from travelers. The outside of the inn isn't anything spectacular, but inside has just a complete overhaul. When we checked in, I asked to not stay on the 1st floor (as I was worried about noise) and the manager said only the honeymoon suite was available... More

While the exterior style of the motel, although clean and well maintained, is rather reminiscent of motels of "yore," the interior is a gem. Every room has been updated and decorated with high-end furniture and decor including large flat-screen TVs. The rooms are spacious and the beds are extremely comfortable. The owners even thought to install individual heating/AC units with... More

This hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, however the rooms are BEAUTIFUL!!! If you are able, reserve a Single/Non-Smoking Room... it is gorgeous!! Completely remodeled - new marble tiles in the bathrooms, marble desks and four-post marble bed. The owner is very friendly and a funny guy. The rate was amazing, Only $54.00 per night. At a hotel...
