My daughter, who is a student at Evergreen State College, and I stayed at the Swantown Inn recently during evaluation week. We really enjoyed this B&B. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts delicious, and I appreciated the guest computer since I didn't bring one. The robes are super-comfy and the ever-present chocolate chip cookies yummy. Nathan and Casey are... More

We visited with another couple and found the hosts and property charming. We like this kind of property as we are history buffs. Loved the luxury sheets and comfortable beds. Care has been taken to blend some newer features with the old. Breakfast was great and they were able to help with some dietary restrictions. We wish them luck on... More

Let's start with the good stuff. The hosts were accommodating ... we were out there on a house search and wanted to get an early start and they made breakfast for us an hour early. The room was nice. We were in the Astoria room and didn't have any problem keeping it warm. The bath across the hall was nice...... More

Casey and Nathan really made me feel welcome. The beds were comfy and it was truly relaxing. I loved every moment of it. Next time I am travelling through, I will return again. I stayed quietly on my own, but I think it would be a great place to go with a couple of friends.

This was the worst experience we have ever had. The rooms were cold, the heat did not work in the Astoria room. They made us feel that we caused the water leak under the sink, Also made us feel like we needed to leave now and didn't make any effort to make us feel at home. We arrived at night... More

Wow! I am not sure where all this began to go down hill, but lets start with some facts, as we asked TripAdvisor to remove the review but they tell us they are not fact checkers. All of our rooms feature ceiling fans that heat as well as cool, and the Astoria room features a fireplace that probably heats the... More

My son surprised me with this delightful B&B. I arrived late but was greeted warmly and rested comfortably. Breakfast was not only gourmet but prepared in accord with my request! A true place of hospitality and comfort.

Stayed at Swantown Inn Fri 10/18-Sun 10/20. The innkeepers Nathan and Casey were very personable and friendly, offering excellent suggestions on where to eat for dinner and local sights to take in.

We booked a night based on the excellent reviews the Swantown Inn had received. When we drove into the Inn, we were a little surprised by all of the "stuff" that was laying around and the general condition of the grounds. It was not terrible... just not what we expected of a 5 star rated inn. Upon entering, we were... More

The Swantown is a very nice B & B with personable owner/operators. The house has some years on it but has been kept up to a standard worthy of staying there. Our room was a tad small, but it was clean & the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was across the hall, but was clean, spacious, & assigned to... More

We too feel that we are a bargain, especially compared to our local hotels and when our three course breakfast is taken into account. We gladly price our selves as such to make the B&B experience accessible to more people so they really get a well-rounded experience of our city and inn, even if they are just with us for... More
