Our experiences, both negative and positive, tally with those of others who have stayed here. The water views are beautiful, the continental breakfast good (cold cereal, h-b eggs, yogurt, bagels, pastries), and the staff was exceptionally pleasant to deal with. On the downside, our south-facing room really heated up during the day and the fan the motel lent us didn't... More

Tides Inn has 2 different buildings. The newer one is quite nice with more modern amenities. The older one where we stayed is more rustic and a bit worn but costs less. Our room was very nice looking directly onto the water with a nice private patio. The walk into town is about 4 blocks which made it convenient. The... More

We took the $200 room because it had a/c (many rooms don't and it is needed). However, it didn't work, and it took forever to get it fixed, so they gave us a different room. But the a/c filter was completely blocked, and it had to be fixed also. Then the key and the lock didn't work. Also bugs in... More

We just checked out of the Tides Inn after a 3 night stay. We could not have been happier with the hotel. Of prime importance to us was the view. Next in importance was the hot tub. We stayed in room 10 where we had two queen size beds in separate rooms and a hot tub out on the deck... More

Cannot get any closer to the water in the bay here or most anywhere. My wife and I had a room in the remodeled building where the front desk is located (highly recommended) and stayed two weeks. Tides Inn is so fitting as one can see tide come in and out and see the surface of the water constantly change... More

Stayed here for one night with my husband and son. The rooms are not large but are comfortable and clean. The view of the water was great. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again.

First, the positives. The Inn is right on the water and most of the rooms have awesome views. Also, they have a very nice breakfast room with a complimentary continental breakfast. The wifi and flat screen TV were good. My main gripe was cleanliness and noise. Yes, this is a sea facing property and seagulls are in residence, but there... More

We stayed in Room 29 in the older part of the motel. First, the yea: it was beautiful weather and we got a waterfront queen room with a deck for $75+tax. The view was beautiful. To the east we watched the ferry come and go with the Cascades in the background and to the west were the the Olympics. The... More

There is nothing I love more than gazing out at the water in Port Townsend -- watching ferries and sailboats go by; watching birds and occasionally other wildlife. These rooms are perfect for this very pastime. The hotel has an older side that has been there since the 80's or earlier (when part of An Officer and a Gentleman was... More

Just know going in that you aren't staying at the Hilton. It is a Ocean front hotel. We had a hot tub room (outdoor) the hot tub is just separated by a little wall from the neighbor. You are literally a stones throw from the ocean. It almost feels damp in the room (as all of the area tends to)... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Many rooms boast private decks overlooking sparkling Port Townsend Bay. Protective windbreaks make year–round enjoyment eventful as the parade of ferries, fishing vessels and sailboats pass by. Take a deep breath of clean, fresh air as you revel in the sights and sounds of nature's seascape. Listen to the surf as it gently lulls you to sleep. ... more   less
