Beautiful hotel, amazing location, great food & good service! This place is a must stay if you are visiting Port Ludlow. It was a family trip and there were plenty of things to see and explore. I took my daughter on her first kayaking trip - so fun & so pretty! The rooms were spacious, beds comfortable and the bathroom... More

Staff is very friendly. Even though the hotel is older, they keep it looking up to date and fabulous! Views are great as well as the walking trails. Bed are very comfortable and fluffy. Everything was great there.

My husband and I stayed here over this past weekend for our first trip away from our daughter. She stayed with the grandparents on the other side of the bridge in Hansville. This was a welcome respite from the every day chaos. The room was clean and we LOVED the spa bathroom. The best was firm, but comfortable. We were... More

My husband and i just stayed for one night..May 16, 2015 It was so relaxing. We had a queen room with full view and balcony. The hot tub was glorious and we spent most of our time hiking the area, and enjoing the peace and quiet of our room. Bed was very comfortable, jaquzzi tub was very inviting. We ate... More

We spent a few days at this hotel and it was OK for a little getaway from the Tacoma environs. The room was ordinary like one at a Holiday Inn. Food in the restaurant was fine. The place attaches a "resort fee" to the bill for each day stayed at the establishment. Why not eliminate this nonsense and just raise... More

Thank you for making the time to share your impressions...and we are disappointed to learn that we did not meet your expectations in either the accommodations nor in the dining. Thanks also for the feedback on the resort fee and we will take that under consideration for future planning. More

We purchase a Port Ludlow room and golf package at an auction, and cashed it in recently. The resort experience was very nice, starting with a large room with a marina view, complete with luxurious bath and thoughtful amenities. We enjoyed walking the marina and the grounds, seeing the totem pole and exploring the beach loop trail. That evening we... More

We liked the quiet location of this resort. The Inn is quite lovely and the rooms are nicely decorated. We had a fireplace and jaccuzi tub and were provided with wonderful smelling bath salts to use. The scenery is quite spectacular and our room had a great view of the marina and mountains. We had our puppy with us and... More

We spent a marvelous weekend over April 18-19 enjoying the sun and atmosphere in and around this gem of a resort in Port Ludlow in the Puget Sound. The restaurant (Fireside Restaurant) is everything and more that the rave reviews say about it. The food is absolutely delightful and is prepared under the watchful eye of Executive Chef Dan Ratigan.... More

We decided to do a relaxing weekend at the Inn pretty much last minute. We had wonderful weather which made for spectacular views. We had a queen, partial view room, and it was just fine. Showing a little age, but no complaints. The bed was comfortable and our dinners in the Fireside restaurant were outstanding! We most certainly will be... More

Thank you for this review and for being spontaneous! We appreciate that you enjoyed the dining room and were able to rest well.... We also appreciate that you found our 20th year in operation "showing a bit" and are in a process of soft-good renovations throughout this year. The first part of that was painting the entire building last year... More

As small hotels in America go, the Resort at Port Ludlow in Washington should be at or near the top of everyone's list. Spectacular setting, spacious, welcoming rooms, a wonderful restaurant with a delightfully intimate bar, and a warm, always helpful staff. From the moment you walk in until the minute you leave you feel as though you're among old... More
